I've previously used AirDroid https://play.google....mFpcmRyb2lkIl0. for transfer of files via wifi but I guess the advantage of SuperBeam is that it's direct ie., the devices do not have to be connected to a common wifi network. Nice! Tx tillaz!

I recently read an article about security on phones, warning of the problems of leaving your phone on the default unlocker. The thing is, I like my phone to look a certain way, and the pattern unlock and passkey entry are... ugly. Still, I had visions of someone finding my poor lost phone and taking over my sad life with it.

Then I found Picture Password Unlocker which I think is pretty cool. Windows phone lockscreen type thing?
Now my unlock screen is whatever picture I like, and unless you know precisely where to draw my unlock symbols, you can't get into the phone. It has a nice passcode entry system for if you try and fail too many times too.

I've also been using Zooper widget ever since I changed to ICS. I used the developer's ACW on GB, and I love Zooper just as much.

This isn't really an app for your phone, but It is used in conjunction with your phone, and it can be very handy in many situations. The app is called android commander and it allows you to browse your entire phone on your desktop, and even modify or pull the files! It's really handy if you are no good with ADB, or you just want ADB with a nice visual GUI.

Android Commander

I'm using it right now, and it works great with the G300. I'm also using over WiFi, so I can use it like a root explorer but wirelessly :)

It also allows you to do logcats, take screenshots, and more.

If you do use this, you may have to update the ADB files. I repackaged my ADB files into this zip, so just download it and extract the bin folder to:

C:\Program Files\Android Commander

...and fire it up :)

Remember it well on the C64, mint game and sound effects will give it a whirl ;)

Edit: Wow just wow, not the same as original but really great for what it is i don't usually play games on android but this is a keeper for a quick blast every now and again :)

If you play it in landscape it's more like the original.

Found a really nice game called Lightopus. Occasionally lags a bit but is playable, and looks great.

Virgin TV Guide. https://play.google....S50dmd1aWRlIl0.

OK this app sucks, but it does work although it is very laggy and can be a bit annoying.

If you have Virgin Media TiVo then this App is a must, even though you will have to experiment with the reliability of setting up recordings. I have found that if you set a program to record twice then this works best and hasn't failed me so far, but trying to record a program that has already started with this app has never been successful for me.

I have to say though that I do use this app all the time when I'm out or when I'm upstairs gaming on my PS3 .. I mean why go all the way downstairs to setup a recording when I can use my G300 :) . I usually have my TiVo Hdd running at 90% capacity. Also in your house, if you have to compete for the remote or recording time, then you can beat everyone with this app and you don't even have to be in the house lol.. brilliant :D .
