Download Play Store for Mobile

  • by

There may be no better place on earth for finding the best mobile apps, games, movies, music and other entertainment than the Google Play Store. With millions of applications to download (most of which are free), and great features like Family Library, gifting, and free streaming radio through Google Play Music, the Play Store is probably the most important app on your mobile device. So if you opened your new mobile and found that it didn’t have Google Play Store installed, you’re most likely (and understandably) frustrated and maybe even confused. Isn’t Play Store supposed to be downloaded and ready to go when you first power up your device?

Why do I need to download Play Store on my mobile device?
There are a few possibilities that could explain why your mobile device doesn’t have Play Store installed and why you may need to download the Play Store app manually. Firstly, if your new mobile device is an iOS device (iPhone, iPad…), a Windows Phone or an old Symbian OS phone, your platform isn’t designed to come with Play Store installed on it (depending on your device, you may be able to work around it, but this is the exception rather than the rule). If you received an Android device without Play Store installed and you bought it used, it’s possible that it’s either been rooted by the previous user or it’s running a version of Android OS that’s too old to be compatible with Google Play Store (Android 2.3 and older use Android Market instead). Lastly, if you bought a brand new Android device and it doesn’t have Play Store installed, it’s most likely a clone device or otherwise missing its official Google certificate.Read More »Download Play Store for Mobile

GO Launcher EX

Appview: GO Launcher EX

  • by

There are plenty of alternative Launcher applications for Android for those that are bored with their default Android launcher options. Many have nice and snazzy UIs, widgets and extra functionality. During my time with Android I have cycled through a few; Launcher Pro and ADWLauncher being two of the most popular in the market.

GO Launcher EX

I decided to try out something new ever since I upgraded to a custom Gingerbread (2.3.4) ROM. This is when I found GO Launcher EX.

“Yet another Launcher” – I thought.

I installed and started messing around with the Launcher settings and configuring it to the way I prefer. What I found were some very nice transition effects and customization options. Whilst there were also an abundance of custom themes available from the market. I settled on a Honeycomb theme, and with a few tweaks my Android experience was yet again somewhat different whilst staying consistent.Read More »Appview: GO Launcher EX

Revision3 have a really great web page to access some of the great content they create. I’m a keen Diggnation fan, I watch it mainly for the banter and the interesting conversations between Alex and Kevin, whilst I also catch up with Destructiod to keep up briefly with my gaming news and snippets.

Revision3

The Revision3 Android app is pretty similar to their slick web page UI. It’s been designed for touch, has some nice graphics and above all high quality content. This is the biggest pro for me. Having access to the shows I watch on there in great quality on the go. There are many apps out there which have video streaming, but all suffer from choppy poor quality streams. Revision3 doesn’t. The streams are high quality HD video.Read More »Appview: Revision3

WhatsApp

There are plenty of IM services out there and many apps which aim to give quick free Instant Messaging service to the masses. Whilst there are many successful and popular ones out there; Fring, Skype, Palringo and even Gtalk to name a few, all of these have one niggling factor which makes it hard to convince someone who’s not quite into IM services to use it. Getting them to install and then add you to their contacts list. This is where WhatsApp clearly stands out from the crowd.

WhatsApp

When WhatsApp is installed, it integrates into the phonebook of the user, checks all the contact numbers and matches them with anyone on that list which is using the service. This gets rid of the whole add me on [insert any service here] and “what’s your username” and their annoyances.

When I first installed it, I was given a list of all my friends who were using this service and promptly started messaging them to let them know I was using it. Which ensued in a flurry of responses and ridicule, mainly because I’m usually the one trying to convince THEM to use a service. Here they were, already ahead of the game. What was the most interesting bit; they were all using different handsets, iPhones (mostly) but also Blackberries. And yes WhatsApp is available on iPhone, Blackberry, Android and Symbian. The app itself can be downloaded from the Android Marketplace or the Appstore of your own mobile platform.Read More »Appview: WhatsApp
