With Apple touting HealthKit and Google also joining the fold with Google Fit, it was inevitable that Microsoft would join the fold at some point, and having taken the wraps off its fitness-related Microsoft Band wearable, the accompanying health and fitness platform – aptly named Microsoft Health – was also launched alongside the wrist worn gadget. Designed for the Microsoft Band, there’s an app for iOS, Android and Windows Phone right off the bat, and as ever, we’ve all of the details under one roof.

Despite its purchase of image-sharing app Instagram a couple of years ago, Facebook remains dedicated to the task of encouraging users to upload their snaps onto the world’s foremost social network, and as per an official blog post, the company is now adding a couple of useful new features for this very purpose.

Google has announced an app called ‘Inbox’, developed by the Gmail Team. Technically, it servers as your Gmail client, but offers an experience nothing close to contemporary ones. Inbox is supposedly a more inherently-intelligent service that handles your emails as a service available on the Web (Chrome only), and as an app for iOS 7+ and Android 4.1+.

A few days back, Skype introduced some revamped features for its desktop client, with a distinct focus on improving the user’s instant messaging experience. So while Skype is busy improving the users’ experience on both, the mobile and desktop version of its app, let us introduce you to Skype Qik. Taking a distinctly different route than Skype, Skype Qik is built for asynchronous video messaging, where you create and share video messages with online and offline users.

We love a freebie or two here, and although it’s been a while since we’ve posted a paid apps gone free article for our Android-wielding readers, we believe that today’s mammoth list was well worth the wait.

Facebook’s decision to decouple its Messenger app from Facebook proper has caused much upset amongst those that rely on the feature in order to keep in touch with people. We found that our use of Facebook Messenger increased once the decoupling took place, but it seems we’re in the minority.

Dong Nguyen, of Flappy Bird fame, returned to prominence last week with the release of Swing Copters, and having infuriated mobile users far and wide the first time around, the follow-up is even more challenging on whole new level. So much so, in fact, that the lone developer has released a swift update of iOS and Android which, thankfully, makes it a bit less cumbersome to play. More details and download link can be found right after the jump.

Dong Nguyen, whose .GEARS Studio developed the famed Flappy Bird title for iOS and Android, has come through with a follow-up title that, on first play, seems every bit as tedious and frustrating as Nguyen’s smash-hit title. Rolling out for iOS and Android, Swing Copters is not so much tricky as infuriating, and given that Nguyen claimed to have pulled Flappy Bird due to the stress it was causing gamers, this new title looks set to raise heart and blood pressure levels all over again.

Given the vast tool set brought to our fingertips by the modern-day smartphone, we often completely overlook the bread-and-butter features such as the ability to make calls and sending SMS messages. But while we have an abundance of utilities and services allowing us to stay connected with each other in ways we could only have dreamt about a few years ago, most of us still commonly engage in the same voice calls we were making long before the likes of Facebook and Skype took over our lives. As such, apps extending the basic phone feature remain abundant, and the app we’re featuring here today not only offers business-level call recording, but arrives complete with a number of great features.

You’d have to have been living in a cave earlier this year to miss the whole Flappy Bird saga. Becoming hugely popular on the App Store and Play Store almost overnight, Flappy Bird raked in huge sums of money for its creator Dong Nguyen on an apparently daily basis. Unfortunately that wasn’t enough to keep him happy though, and his newfound fame – or should that be infamy – caused him to pull the game and almost disappear.

There are many ways to evaluate a Wi-Fi network. You can either go for the hands-on visual approach by looking at the Wi-Fi signal bars, or just run a regular speed test and see the general performance of a network. But a regular speed test doesn’t tell the complete story as it’s usually done on server side to check Internet speed, not local wireless network’s speed. This is where a handy app for iPhone and Android comes in.

The fact that, some time ago, Facebook decided to separate the Messenger segment of its service into a standalone mobile app wasn’t too much of an issue when it initially went down. After all, users could still easily continue to communicate using the official app, and the Facebook Messenger app was a convenient service dedicated to IM only. However, as users have noticed over the past couple of months, Facebook for iOS and Android is now a message-free zone, which, aside from being inconvenient, seems a tad unnecessary. Luckily, there’s a way to circumvent the limitation, and whether you’re rocking Facebook Messenger for Apple’s iOS or Google’s Android platform, you’ll find a fairly simple workaround below.

Wi-Fi networks are literally everywhere. From our homes, to our offices, and heck even in our laundry outlets, we have Wi-Fi networks littered across like a pack of bees going crazy in a flower field. But, while having Wi-Fi around us is all good, but what great does it do when there’s someone hogging all the network’s bandwidth? Don’t you wish you could find that very same guy on the network using a simple app, so you can find a better network for yourself? Of course you can, and it’s as easy as downloading a simple Android app.

Mobile phone unlocking has long been something of a grey area in the United States, but when President Obama signed a bill into law that sought to clear things up a little more, many hoped that the floodgates to easily unlockable phones would open.
