The iTunes Store holds thousands of free podcasts, but what if you're an Android kind of person? That Apple is tempting, but don't bite; adapt! Androids who are also Pod People can simply download and play iTunes podcasts on their alien devices. It's easy, thanks to apps like Wagachat's iTunes Podcast Search.

Instead of moving from music keyboard to PC keyboard, you can control all of SequetronLE's functions from your music keyboard. SequetronLE also turns your computer keyboard into a programmable music keyboard. It has a … Read more
We've seen quite a few Cloud-based tools for storing and syncing data. Abelssoft's CloudClippy 2013 is among them, but takes a slightly different approach to many of the tools we've seen. CloudClippy automatically copies data saved to the Windows clipboard -- images, for example -- and transfers them to a Cloud-based account. CloudClippy also packages multiple files together and compresses them before transferring the data. It recognizes images automatically and displays them online via links. You can also create private links for sharing access to files. CloudClippy's basic account is free, and you don't even … Read more

Shoot a Loop is a simple game. It uses a mechanism that can be found in small plastic toys that children used to get out of vending machines in grocery stores 20 years ago. That isn't necessarily a bad thing. Plenty of games use simple, nostalgic designs in modern packaging to bring their players back to the days of yesteryear on their phones. However, with some odd physics, hard-to-control mechanics, and a limit on game modes, Shoot a Loop is not such a game.
The concept is very simple. You have a basketball in a loop with four baskets, … Read more

BARCELONA, Spain--One of the great things about a trade show like Mobile World Congress is seeing the cool phones and tablets we won't get. Hang on, did I say great? I meant depressing -- I'd love to get my hands on a 4G Android smartphone as powerful as the Fujitsu Arrows X F-02E, or a water-resistant 4G Windows 8 tablet like the Fujitsu Arrows Tab.
Both devices are only available in Japan, and unlikely to go on sale elsewhere. Which is a shame: the Arrows X F-02E, Fujitsu's flagship phone, has specs to die for -- and … Read more
There are only three questions worth asking about a video-converting program: is it free, is it fast, and how is the video quality? Boilsoft Video Converter answers the second two questions well, but misses on the first. If you can handle paying for it, it is a quality video converter.
