This addictive app has been downloaded by millions of users, spreading on smartphones and social networks, and making music lovers (or should we say music junkies?) everywhere take note.
As a player, you get to listen to a short clip of a popular song and try to guess the title of the song. The music comes from a wide variety of playlists, ranging from classic rock to top hits from today’s Billboard charts, modern rap, country music, and everything in between.

Get started by logging in with your Facebook account, or sign up with an email account for quick and easy access. Once logged in, you can find your friends by searching with Facebook, search using your opponent’s email address, or simply select “random” to meet and challenge a fellow stranger who loves music as much as you do.
Quizzes will challenge your musical memory as you work your way through totally new genres as well as old favorites. The game begins with six basic playlists, then as you correctly guess more and more songs and build your win streak, you can earn coins that allow you to unlock more content. The current version also gives you access to special collections or newer artists, and you can even chat with other users.

If you like looking at beautiful women and being asked to upgrade to the $1.99 version on nearly every page and feature, then this is the app for you. The sole purpose of this app is to frustrate anyone that wants to see more of the model. SI Swimsuit 2011 free is a big tease to get you to spend money on the full version. It is a little bit insulting because the free app serves no real purpose at all. Not knocking these beautiful women in swimsuits, just SI and DirectTV for putting this out. They should remove the free version of the app as it is insulting to the intelligence of appreciators’ of the beautiful photography that SI Swimsuit is known for.
If you want to see SI Swimsuit 2011 skip the free version and just spend the $1.99. It will give you access to videos and more and costs much less than the magazine on newsstands. Free version – lame, Full version – tasty! Oh, there’s also a creepy stalker-ish feature in which you can follow your favorite models on Twitter from inside the app. That sounds like a lawsuit waiting to happen. The full version also gives you access to updates of more videos and pics on a monthly basis and comes standard with an initial 40 videos.
This is another in a long list of apps that conserve your battery power switching off services or allowing you to make hotkeys to turn off services. What is going on with battery power exactly? The reason you may be losing battery power is because you have a lot of apps running simultaneously or even a few high processor usage apps. Juice Defender claims to extend battery life which is true in a way, but not a reason to download the app.
The reason you would want to download this app is because of their preset modes that help you manage WiFi, Mobile Data and CPU speed. The settings are nice because you can choose to run at full mode when you want to and switch over to less battery draining settings when you are done.
Juice Defender is a free and feature limited version of UltimateJuice. If you are looking for a power management app then Juice Defender is one you should be safe trying. If you don’t like it, there are plenty of others to try. Not only will they help you fight free radicals, but they may also help lower your risk of heart disease and Type 2 diabetes.
This is kind of a one trick pony kind of app. If you like Time Magazine then it would be handy app to have around, but the Time Mobile app does not do anything that special. Just a news reading app and not much that different from others except of course, for the content. The layout is clean and concise and you can get to your favorite articles fairly quickly.
For a free app, it does the job, looks decent and hasn’t crashed yet for us. Time is one of the most established news magazines in the world and has a very large global following.
