Call of Duty is as ubiquitous in modern gaming as any franchise, appearing and breaking sales records like clockwork every fall. For those who enjoy the cinematic styling of the franchise and the jaw-dropping graphics and multiplayer action, it is an event marked by days off work and countless hours with a controller in hand. So, it is no surprise to find a number of Call of Duty games in the App Store, nor the Call of Duty Zombies rendition (popular on the consoles as an add-on). And while the developers do a good job of moving many of the … Read more

More delicious Android desserts could be just around the corner, according to some allegedly leaked Qualcomm roadmap slides that mention a springtime arrival for the Android "K-release" or "Key Lime Pie" a few times.
Qualcomm officials have apparently been racing around the Internet demanding that a handful of tech blogs take them down due to copyright issues and thereby suggesting that they're actually legit. (As I write, you can still view them here on Phone Arena via Android Police.)
If Android 5.0 does pop up in a delicious sweet and sour flavor between March … Read more
Advanced Word to Pdf Converter Free promises to convert Word documents (DOC, DOCX, and DOCM) as well as text and rich-text documents into searchable PDFs, as the name suggests, for free. We assume it's intended for users who lack Word, since Word can save Word, text, and rich-text documents directly as PDFs. And "free" in this case means it's a restricted version of a premium tool. That wouldn't matter so much if it actually converted files in its default mode, without the paid version's settings and options. Unfortunately, it didn't.
Advanced Word to … Read more

The great thing about the iPhone and iPod is that they put our entire music collection at our fingertips. However, every now and then, we like the randomness that a good, old-fashioned radio station offers for finding new tunes or listening to old ones. iHeartradio brings the radio to your iOS device so you don't have to miss a music beat.
Before getting started with iHeartradio, you're asked to sign in using either your Facebook account or by entering your e-mail address and creating a password. You can also skip that option and come back to it, which … Read more
Sure, they may only cost 10 cents a pop, but any parent of a teenager knows that text messages add up fast, creating a very large bill at the end of the cycle. Text Free with Textfree aims to lessen your phone bill with free texting and free calls, but its main selling points failed to actually work.
To begin, Textfree asks if it can have access to your contacts. From there, you'll have to create an account, which will require you to create a username and password, and enter your age, gender, and e-mail. After that, it'll … Read more
Yahoo Messenger has been a staple of audio and text chats for a long, long time, and video chats are now handled without problem. The latest version of Yahoo Messenger adds enhancements to contacts and friends lists, as well as support for newsfeeds and visual tweaks.

If you go around saying things like "P2P" and "VoIP," even your friends are apt to give you the eyebrow, but say "Skype," and millions of users around the world get the message. Skype means free Skype-to Skype Internet phone calls, video chat and conferencing, IM, and Facebook integration. We tried the latest release of the free version of Skype, which not only lets you yak at other Skype users as long as you want for free but also enables free one-to-one video calls, Instant Messaging, and screen sharing. A Pay As You Go … Read more
RAR Password Unlocker detects and cracks lost or forgotten passwords protecting RAR archives. It offers three methods of tackling lost passwords: Brute Force, Brute Force with User-Defined Mask, and Dictionary mode, which tries password combinations against a built-in dictionary that you can customize. It can also automatically save and resume interrupted recovery operations and search for archives in your system. It's free to try, but the trial version only recovers the first three letters of the password and limits dictionary searches to 10,000 possible combinations. If that's enough to jog your memory, you're in luck. But … Read more
