Tech Talk-Android Apps

Technology Matters

    Impress your iPhone-toting friends with the AppLock Face/Voice Recognition app.
    AppLock learns the sound of your voice and what you look like to unlock your device. 
    Use AppLock to lock specific apps.  Set up PIN or password in case either voice or face fails.
    The app also prevents spoofing.

    Light Flow Lite allows you to control those LED notification lights.  You can set each different color for a specific app.  Customize the sound and vibration notifications too.

    HoverChat is a replacement for your stock messaging app.
    HoverChat will keep you in whatever app you’re in and still respond to messages.  A message window pops in over the current app without interruption.  Set the transparency to your liking and have multiple message windows open at once.
    Turn the app off to return to stock messaging.

     UCCW allows you to build your own homescreen widget.
    Select a skin, then time and date info, weather forecasts or other data to include.  Make the widget as simple or complex as you want.  You can even build your own widget skins from scratch.
    There’s a host of skins on Google Play if you want to go that route.

    Finally, another lock screen.  The Cover Lock Screen allows a little more customization over what apps appear on your lock screen.  You can set up to five apps to appear at all times.  Peeking into the app is as easy as sliding the icon to the right of the lock screen itself.
    Cover Lock Screen works much like iOS by learning your usage patterns based on locations and other factors.  However, it gives you the ability to both peek into apps and support more than one at a time.
    Twitter just bought Cover, so we’re likely to see more cool features in this app soon.
