Disk cleaners earn their keep by taking out the trash: deleting temporary files, clearing caches, emptying the Recycle Bin, and purging other space-hogging, system-slowing junk before it can accumulate into the data processing equivalent of clogged arteries. Moo0 Disk Cleaner 1.19 is fast, lightweight, and easy to use, and it can clean on boot or on demand. It targets those places where junk files accumulate, such as your browser, program caches, and Windows temporary and log files, though you can add custom targets and exclude any location from cleaning. In fact, you need to check each item's box … Read more
When Facebook Home debuted, most people yawned--until they saw the "Chat Heads" feature. This appropriately-named app adds them to your phone without taking the whole thing over the way Home would. Chat Heads brings this cool notification feature to any of the apps of your phone.
The app slides a "Chat Heads" section onto your accessibility menu that you have to turn on before you use it. It also tries to hit your phone with ads, but you can choose to decline that part of the app. Once you go through the longer setup process, Chat … Read more
If you're buried under a sea of bills, this app might help you dig yourself out. Bill Reminder Free BillManager will remind you when it's time to pay any bill you tell it to. It's nowhere near as helpful as a full budgeting app or even Google Calendar, but it does what it says on the box.
Bill Reminder Free BillManager lets you create multiple templates and bill reminders for days or months. Sadly, you can't set bill reminders to reoccur on the same day every month. You have to create them every single month, which … Read more
ClipNote Special packs so many neat goodies that you might be a little overwhelmed. Once you catch your breath, you'll wonder how you ever did work on your mobile gadget without it.
This app automatically runs in the background, waiting for you to copy or cut something. Once you do, it holds it for you until you delete it. Once you don't need what's on your clipboard anymore, you can delete everything with one touch. If you want to keep something through multiple deletes, you can save it as a favorite. The app buttons can sometimes seize … Read more
Facebook's default app has never won a lot of fans because of its slightly buggy performance. Facebook Web gives you another way to view your feeds, but it doesn't do much to best Facebook's default app. The only improvements it gives you aren't noticeable and aren't worth the ads.
Since this is a Facebook viewer, you'll have to log in with your Facebook account to use it. It presents a Facebook layout that closely mirrors the one you're used to with a few changes. The most noticeable change is the ads on the … Read more
Did you switch to Android and end up missing the iPhone's contacts app? Hi Contacts aims to give you the best of both worlds. It's nowhere near as smooth as the default app on Androids or iPhones, though. That lack of convenience will ruin it for most users.
The app is designed to look exactly like the contacts viewer on iPhones. It is a good double and even mimics the iPhone's contact cards seamlessly. It does add banner ads that get in the way big time, though. You can get rid of them for a fairly steep $… Read more
Hi SMS offers a nice skin for your texts, but it doesn't have many of the features you probably need from iPhone's app. It's a decent way to transition from it, though.
As you might have guessed, this app is designed to look exactly like iPhone's text-messaging inbox. There is one thing keeping it from doing that exactly--the ads. They're nowhere near as bad as some apps, but they wouldn't appear in an iPhone app. They tend to get in the way if you have a smaller phone, too. Since Hi SMS is only … Read more
Moo0 VideoMinimizer reduces the picture size or file size of video recordings with minimal quality reduction. Unlike the big downloads, this free tool is easy to learn and works fast. Moo0 VideoMinimizer 1.13 is compatible with Windows XP to 8.
Like many of Moo0's no-nonsense utilities we've tried, VideoMinimizer has a compact dialog-style user interface that includes the most frequently needed controls and options right up front, such as the Keep on Top and Notify when Finished check boxes. And, like other Moo0 tools, VideoMinimizer has many interface language options, though some are partial files. But frequent … Read more
This app gives you the chance to be the star of a magazine--a really poor magazine, but a magazine nonetheless! InstaMag - Magazine Collage automatically organizes a few of your pictures into a spread, but it looks terrible. You won't want to share anything this collage app makes.
This app is designed to present your photos as if they were in a magazine spread. InstaMag - Magazine Collage only supports collages with four photos-- you can't have more or less. You can't move where the photos sit on the digital page, either. In fact, the only thing … Read more
Hidden Objects Wilderness FREE lets you find all sorts of silly things in a decent looking wilderness setting. It's a little too easy and rather unattractive, but it's fine if you're bored and just need a simple distraction.
When you first launch this app, you're hit with weird ads for other mobile games. It takes a few taps to get them to go away. The entire game has some of those unresponsive quirks, actually. Though the game promises "hauntingly beautiful" rainforest landscapes, they look like bad cardboard cutouts. The whole thing is incredibly cluttered … Read more
