While loitering around Google Play I found this app called SURDOC. This is basically an online backup app. They are presently offering a ridiculous 100GB of storage for a year . So if anyone is looking for a temporary harddisk online you may want to give it a try. Though the survival of the service remains to be seen...

Note :
1. The 100 GB is available via the app store only.
2. Last date to get that much space seems to be 15-01-2013.
3. Only Almighty knows the catch behind?

by MidnightCowboy on 10. January 2013 - 23:05  (104396)

Agreed. A business model like this is unsustainable. They will either go bust like so many others before them or become no more competitive than the already established services. IMO I would not trust this as my only solution at this time. MC - Site Manager.

by mr6n8 on 11. January 2013 - 11:06  (104401)

It is even worse (or better). They are giving away unlimited storage for a year with the option to purchase 3 years of unlimited storage for $19.99@year.

I would not trust a 1 year old company with a deal that sweet. Too many of these storage sites have gone away.

Though I have had 2 free 50GB ADrive accounts for over 5 years.

I Have just upgraded from a HTC Wildfire S to a Samsung GS3. A couple of great Apps I would like to suggest are as follows:

Music Player and Organizer - JetAudio Basic
File Manager - FX

Im extreemely impressed with these two apps so far!


by HAN on 5. January 2013 - 5:06  (104236)

The best launcher, launch anywhere and anytime.

Skyfish swipe launcher

by abhay2009 on 20. December 2012 - 11:58  (103788)

I would like to suggest Switchapps as the best app switcher. Kindly review the app in your next app review.

by JAHOMAFIA on 20. December 2012 - 11:41  (103787)

hey evrybody am new to android so can any one give me any ideas where to find free apps for my galaxy S3 specially video accelerators,video downloaders and spying apps

by Juxxize on 23. December 2012 - 10:55  (103884)

here are 2 spy cam apps, i use tinycam app so i can view my home web cam set up with yawcam , when i'm out and about i can view my webcam from my phone ( i use it to check on my dogs )
but there are loads of other free spy apps on google play

by Joe A.TT on 20. December 2012 - 13:06  (103793)

All of the apps listed above are free since at Gizmo's we only discuss free software. If you don't see what you want in the above lists, you could always search Google's Play store - there are many more free apps there as well.

by HAN on 20. December 2012 - 10:00  (103782)


After use it, I'm sure it is the best wikipedia client.

by Juxxize on 12. December 2012 - 10:24  (103539)

I'm glad we have airdroid reviewed on gizmo's because I'm loving it no more struggling with tiny phone screens to send texts ha ha

A good IRC client :

AndroIRC :

It's pretty good. Can be added to Messaging section. Another one I tried and seems to be quite popular is Yaaic, but I did not find it to be that good.

About WhatsApp, it's only free for the first year. After that it costs money.

by Juxxize on 12. December 2012 - 10:16  (103538)

good point the 1st year is free and it's $0.99 there after i think go sms pro is free text between other go sms pro users it's listed above , i don't think there is a years limit on that like whatsapp

by Anupam on 12. December 2012 - 10:35  (103540)

I tried Go Sms Pro but didnt like it. It's not a messaging software actually, it's mainly for stock sms replacement.

If you are looking for a free messenger app, then besides whatsapp, there are others like Kik Messenger, Viber, etc. I guess Whatsapp is popular because it does not require you to register and make a new ID, but it just uses the phone number.

I think it might be worth adding a suggest a app section. Although there are so many it might be impossible to review all the ones suggested. Or maybe a member based suggest a app by category. Not reviewed but alternatives to the the apps that have been reviewed.

Something that might be worth testing and reviewing

Bitdefender Power Tune up

TrendMicro optimizer

Utter Voice recognition - This one is in BETA still needs some work but seems very promising when i was testing it out.

by Juxxize on 12. December 2012 - 10:05  (103537)

i like the look of these apps i might give them a spin on my phone.

by mariebio on 5. December 2012 - 20:20  (103383)

There are no money saving apps on here and I think they are fantastic. The new Visa one is great:

by MoreDoor on 3. December 2012 - 10:18  (103279)

PDroid should be a featured sticky in this section.

As a privacy assuring framework mod poorly conceived apps will be unable to violate the user

Someone was trying streetquest - run is a game? Really nice game if you dont like to stay at home 24/7 :)

Here is ling to store:

by kamin (not verified) on 20. November 2012 - 20:58  (102638)

I "couldn't live without" anymore:

- "SMS flash" - show (transparent) sms on top of anything, dismiss or reply by click or proximity sensor. no internet-permission.

- "wave control" - use your proximity-sensor to control your music.

- "copipe", a clipboard in your notification-bar.

- "haxsync" finally sets my friends fb-pictures as contact-pics.

- "livescore widget".

- "swipe pad" - reaches "any" app from within any app.

- "screen filter", when 0 isn't dark enough.

- "shake to shuffle beta" - shake to skip song.

- "elixir 2" - not as system information tool but as the one widget-creator i will ever need.

sorry for the double-posts.

Have you tried Ovo as a simple timer? Really simple interface and very intuitive.

by lee.7904 on 12. November 2012 - 3:15  (102182)

jus new to these tablets so jus trying to get games!

by Juxxize on 11. November 2012 - 13:34  (102163)

I love my phone but it has a tiny screen so mighty text is great for texting ( when i'm at home anyway) it's really easy to use , install on your browser and phone and your texting from your laptop within seconds.

by Juxxize on 25. November 2012 - 11:20  (102878)

I just thought I'd add , that Pocket is really great too, it helps save money and keep mobile data costs because while I'm at home I sync a load of web pages to it either using the desktop app or via dolphin browser ( it integrates well with dolphin browser for android ) using my home board-band and then while I'm out and about I can view the web-pages off-line saving me from using my mobile data allowance.

I have been using this new free cloud backup application called G Cloud Backup. It works very well and I have restored from it twice already. You should really check it out as it doesnt need any rooting and can backup everything you may need. I will include a link:

You should review it. Thx
