Jedi Masters answer their cell phones with gesture. Now Androids can, too, and without help from the Force, if they have Necta's Air Call-Accept (free). Air Call-Accept lets you answer your Android smartphone with a wave of your hand. It uses your phone's built-in motion sensor to detect when you pass your hand over the phone or place it near your ear when it's ringing and answers the call. It's great for drivers or anyone who uses a Bluetooth headset (or the phone's speaker). Air Call-Accept (free) is a freeware version of a premium app … Read more

Android Video Converter Box offers plenty of resolutions for your video files, but it doesn't offer any unique format support. The program works in a pinch, but it doesn't exceed the features of most video converters.

You choose your video, select the resolution, and then the app goes to work converting it to the size you want. The application can't change the format of the video, so you'll need a video that already works with … Read more

AB-Browser, at first glance, is a standard, third-party Web browser for iOS, but as you dig deeper you will find a powerful free replacement for Safari that is just as compelling in its own right. With streamlined functionality, very fast load times, and a number of options not available in Safari by default, it is a very useful tool for anyone looking to replace Apple's Web browser with something new.
When you open AB-Browser, you'll start to see the differences right away. The developers have stripped out the bottom bar completely, getting everything under a couple of buttons … Read more
TextZapp seems, at first glance, like yet another "add text to image" app; but while the functionality is the same, the execution is something different entirely -- in a good way. TextZapp allows you to do all sorts of cool things, from choosing customized fonts with professional-looking text effects to adding stickers and other effects that make your images wholly unique, before sharing them to social media profiles through the app. It's a generally very good app in this regard.
When you set up TextZapp you can immediately load an image from your camera or photo library. … Read more
PDFMerge is the sort of tool we've come to expect from Free PDF Solutions; a streamlined application that essentially makes it as easy as possible to do one job. In the case of PDFMerge, it's merging multiple PDFs into single documents. PDFMerge is based on the PDFSharp library. In addition to being free, PDFMerge's advantages are its small size (572.27KB) and speed. The latest version of PDFMerge, v1.19, has a new user interface. It supports Windows 98 to 8; we ran it on Windows 7.
Optional downloads are as common with freeware as commercials with … Read more

3D Brick Breaker Revolution is the newest iteration of a popular formula long since used and reused on video game consoles and computers, but it fails to set itself apart enough to be a wholly unique experience. That is not necessarily a bad thing if you enjoy the genre, but for those looking for a new experience, as promised by the name, a lot of what's here is very familiar.
The object of 3D Brick Breaker Revolution is to destroy the blocks onscreen with a ball that you keep in the air with a paddle. The controls are well … Read more
