When you go into a store and select a item you would like to purchase, you may want to be assured that you are getting the best value possible for your money. If this curiosity is something you have ever felt before when buying things at a brick and mortar retail store, you may be interested to know about five iPhone apps that can do price checks and comparisons between many local to you and online retailers for the same things that you may be considering to buy. Albeit, they all have certain things in common; they all check various prices of an item for you, and they allow you to create shopping lists to keep or share by sending them to friends and family. All you have to do is scan the products’ barcode with your phone and let the app do the rest. It’ll bring up a menu filled with different stores and list the item up for question and the price they are selling it for, if it is available for that particular store. If you do not feel up to scanning barcodes, no problem, you can take the product’s picture, or say the products name into your phone, you can even just plain old type it in. (more…)
If you’re like most people, you like to be able to customize your Android device. One of the most popular ways to do this is to download and set a new background image—a.k.a wallpaper. One way to change your Android wallpaper is by browsing the Internet and saving images which look nice. However, these won’t always look as good when they’re set to be the background, as your device may have proportions which don’t match the image’s, or may only show a small part of the picture you wanted.
The solution is to try an app with pre-loaded wallpapers. There are many apps out there which have these, but if you’re bored with the usual 20 to 30 wallpaper choices, all of which are ugly, there’s an even better solution. Welcome to Wallbase, an app which pulls wallpapers from popular website, http://www.wallbase.cc. The selection is massive, with over one million images to choose from, many of which are in HD (High Definition). (more…)

No, I’m not exactly bashing the Microsoft guys. Actually they have done quite a wonderful work with Windows Phone.

After using it for around strong 4+ months, I’m now finding out some stuff where Microsoft should really put their hands on and improve the platform.
