Speaker takes away the hassle usually associated with creating podcasts, and puts everything you need into one simple app. Here's how to use it...

Speaker is one of the very few apps on the Android Market that allows you to create, broadcast and publish new podcasts wherever you are, as long as your Android device is connected to a Wi-Fi network. All of this can be done for free, and is one of the main reasons Spreaker has gained such a large following of podcast-enthused Android users in the short amount of time that it has been available. As well as recording podcasts, Speaker also boasts a comprehensive library of other podcasts for you to tune in to all of which you can track through a Twitter-styled follow' system. The choice is so varied that you might find yourself listening to one podcast in Angola, and then in the next instance, someone on the other side of the planet in Japan.

This tutorial will guide you through the various menus of Spreaker and show you the basics of getting started with recording a podcast, We'll also demonstrate how you can practice recording your voice, how to do a podcast live on air, as well as give you some information and helpful tips about browsing through other people's podcasts. The tutorial itself isn't difficult to complete, and once you have nailed the following steps, there's no doubt that you'll be creating your own audio masterpieces in no time.

There are so many different Android phones on the market, each from different developers. They all have their own individual specifications to be aware of, which can make them great or not so great to play bingo on. The following phones are the ones that we think are the very best for Android bingo.

Samsung Galaxy S8

The Samsung Galaxy series of smartphones are some of the best Android phones around. The Galaxy S8 is a powerful phone with a brilliant screen for all of your bingo needs. If you want to splash out then you can go for the Plus version, which has a rounded screen for extra versatility.

This is the closest competitor to the Apple iPhone series and many believe that these phones are actually better. There are lots of advantages to using these for bingo, including power saving modes which can keep you going at your favourite bingo sites for the longest possible amount of time.

The storage on these phones is also quite big, which means that if you’re a fan of using apps then you won’t have to worry about running out of space. There’s even a quick charge option that can have you playing at full charge in a flash.

OnePlus 5

This Chinese manufactured phone comes with a very affordable price and a range of great features. It’s a simple enough smartphone but still powerful for the gamers out there. It has a 1080p HD screen, which at its full brightness will make any bingo or slot game pop. ...continue reading Which Android Phone is best for Bingo?

Location, location, location. Even if you aren't in the real estate business, you've probably heard at least once that location really does matter. You want to always make sure that you're going to be able to keep things interesting. We like Android apps that keep things interesting, so when we discovered GeoCam, we had to check it out.

GeoCam is an app that makes it easy to save the senor data of your device to a log file, calculating the coverage of the site. The coverage will always be a ratio of the track covering area to the area of the site (expressed in percentages, of course)

Sounds complicated? GeoCam is all about giving geographic data to photos. This gives you a lot of actual power -- you can show the distance between specific objects if you take a series of photos.

GeoCam

There's a lot of power in this little app. For one, you can make a geophoto of just about anything that you want. You could make a photo of an object that intrigues you. Road trip anyone? Looking at what photos really mean on a deeper level could change the way we travel. After all, we're always rushing through life. This could be a great way to remember locations that you would have otherwise forgotten about because you didn't have time to write everything down.

Real estate investors definitely will get a big kick out of this app, because they can send a Geocam Report to show properties that could really lead to big profits. It's much easier to take a picture than to try to write down all of the details of a property that catches your eye.

What we liked best is that each GeoCam report is in PDF format. PDF is a format that's viewable on just about every device that we can think of. You won't have trouble sharing data, that's for sure.

Don't forget about GeoLog when you're evaulating this app. GeoLog 2 lets you sync with the logs from photos made with any camera. this is the heart of making geophotos. You then will turn around and use GeoCam to view the geophotos in all of their nerdy, scientific glory. How cool is that?

GeoLog

If you do decide to download this free app for the Android, you'll find a lot of functionality. Don't get overwhelmed -- there's ample help available if you want to take advantage of it. Why not check it out today and see if you like it? You'll be glad that you did!

There's always a new app coming out, and there's never a bad time to highlight them. Sometimes we get bogged down with the sheer amount of apps to be covered, but hey -- it is what it is. We definitely wanted to cover Flipboard, especially now that it's being placed over to Android. This is an app that started out on the iPad scene and was ported over.

What does it do that's so earth shattering? Well, it makes reading things on your tablet a lot more streamlined. Everything is turned into a magazine like view that you can flip through -- hence the name. Facebook feeds? No problem. Google+? No problem. Twitter? Too easy. YouTube? You bet.

But what also makes Flipboard interesting is that it scales to cover both the 7 inch tablets and the 10 inch tablets. The tablet experience isn't as solid across different sizes as many would like, but it's getting better. The app handles various screen sizes with ease -- not having a problem with taking advantage of widescreen displays. It's all good as far as Flipboard is concerned.

Flipboard android

Flipboard HQ indicated that it worked with Samsung closely to make sure that the app performs great on both the Galaxy Tab and Galaxy Note, but any other Android tablet will do nicely. This means you Nook and Kindle people can join the party as well.

Google is really trying to get developers on board for this push to make the tablet experience more interesting. Will it stick? Perhaps -- but only time will really tell what users have to look forward to.

Flipboard is a free app that you should definitely download and check out today. Have fun!
