Let’s keep up with technology

Technology will outrun our imagination very soon. The pace of innovations are now at par with our thoughts. You have an idea – all the tools needed to realize it are at your reach. It is difficult to keep up with technology. The dosage from websites, newspaper supplements and television are not enough. We need to be updated even on the move. What can be done? Thanks to advanced mobile OS(s). They let us build apps & keep the users upto date. And here are two nifty apps that I have developed for Android platform (supports from Gingerbread upwards).

To save bandwidth and space, the screens are updated only when selected and internet is available ie if you like only to read, unless and until you select the videos panel, they won’t be fetched from the internet.
