Angry Birds Tips and Tricks

Undoubtedly Angry Birds is the most famous games available for iPhone. This game is so popular that even other OS platforms like Android and Symbian are making this available game available to the people. The reason why this game is so popular is that it is a very simple game and anyone can start playing and enjoying it within minutes. However, the toughest part of the game is to clear the levels and move ahead.

In the game, you are provided with a slingshot which is used to throw birds to get rid of blocks that are made up of wood, stone or other material. Inside the block, there can be more than one pig. By using the slingshot, you should get rid of both – the pigs as well as the structure. You are provided with different types of birds. Each type has a different color. Also, each of the structure has different damage tolerance capacity depending on the material it is made up of. For example, structure that is made of up wood can be broken easily as compared to the structure made up of glass.

To master the game, you need to learn about the different kinds of birds. Here is the low down on them:

Red Bird
Red bird is the simplest weapon to hit the structure. The higher you throw it, the more damage it will do.

Blue
Blue bird breaks into three smaller birds and can be best used to break structures made up of glass. For maximum damage, you need to touch the screen just before the bird hits the glass. This will let the bird split into three and cause much damage to the structure.

Yellow
Yellow bird is perfect for aiming long distance structures. Certain levels will have structures with parts that can only be accessed and hit by yellow birds.

White
White bird is a special kind of bird as it carries an egg bomb. When you are about to strike the structure, you need to hit the screen in such a way that the explosive egg is released and will go down and hit the structure below it. However, the white bird will continue to fly and hit the upper part of the structure.

Black
Black bird is heavier compared to any bird in the game. You need to launch it at a steep angle and then it will explode to the bottom and will do great damage to bigger structures.

Green
Green bird has the ability to perform like a boomerang. It can do massive damage. However, once it hits the structure you cannot take advantage of the boomerang function.

Samsung Fascinate Review

The moment you see the Samsung Fascinate, you simply fall in love with this beautiful phone. It is the fourth Samsung Galaxy phone. It looks very similar to Samsung Vibrant that we reviewed last month. The Samsung Fascinate measures 125 x 64 x 10.5mm and weighs only 116g. The slim design and rounded edges truly makes it look amazing.

Like the other Galaxy phones from Samsung, even the Samsung Fascinate sports a Super AMOLED display screen that measures 4 inches. It has got a display resolution of 480 x 800 pixels and supports 16m colors. Below the display are the four touch-sensitive buttons for accessing Menu, Home, Back and Search. If you tour around the sides of the Samsung Fascinate, you will notice that there are hardly any buttons. The volume controller located on the left and the power/display lock button is on the right. The top houses the 3.5mm audio jack and microUSB port. Flip the phone to its back and you will find the 5MP autofocus camera with LED flash.

The Samsung Fascinate runs on Android 2.1 OS and it brings you even more customization options thanks to the TouchWiz 3.0 user interface. It allows you to add four important buttons on the screen (Phone, Contacts, Messaging and Applications) and it also lets you choose from 7 home screens. Moreover, it allows you to add host of custom widgets on the home screen. The internal memory of Samsung Fascinate is 2GB and 32GB of microSD can be used on its external memory. The phone comes with 16GB of microSD.

The Samsung Fascinate is a cool phone for social networking as it easily integrates Facebook contacts on the phonebook and it also lets you add events from your Facebook to the calendar of the phone. You can easily set up POP, IMAP and Exchange email accounts. Even though the Samsung Fascinate lacks physical keyboard, the virtual keyboard does well in providing you good error free typing. The Swype software lets you type even faster on this phone. Verizon’s IM app lets you get in touch with your buddies on Yahoo! Messenger, Windows Live, Google Talk and AIM. The document viewer app lets you view and edit Word, Excel, PowerPoint and PDF files.

The 5 megapixel autofocus camera snaps high resolution photographs with rich details. However, the single LED flash does not illuminate the subject well because of which you won’t be able to snap good pictures in dim lighting.  You can record HD videos at 720p at 30fps. The music player looks good and allows you to share songs through Bluetooth and email. The equalizer presets helps in producing impressive sound output. You can enjoy wide range of video formats such as 3GP, MP4, XviD and DivX on the beautiful Super AMOLED display of Samsung Fascinate.

You can connect to the web through 3G (Rev A up to 3.1 Mbps) and DLNA enabled WLAN. The Flash enabled WebKit Android web browser gives you hassle free browsing experience. It renders pages quickly and has got features like double-tap and multi-touch. You can make use of VZ Navigator and Google Maps for using the assisted GPS feature of Samsung Fascinate. The phone runs on Li-Po 1500 mAh standard battery. However, Samsung hasn’t yet disclosed the talk time and standby time of the battery on its official website but we reckon that it can give a talk time of over 6 hours and up to 12 days of standby time.

Using Your Android Phone as Webcam

Most of the Android phones come with high resolution camera which is capable of taking good quality images and even HD videos. You may have thought of connecting your phone to your computer through Bluetooth or USB for using it as a webcam. However, the sad fact is that there is no application that comes preloaded on Android that allow you to use your phone as a webcam.

Here are two Android apps that will allow you to use your phone as a webcam:

1. IP Webcam

It is a very good application if you are looking forward to have a video chat on popular IMs such as Skype and Windows Live. It can be streamed through video player such as VLC or also through your internet browser. You are not required to install any PC client software for using it. All you need to do is simply install the app on the phone and connect the phone to your PC. It is available for Android 2.2 and can be downloaded from the Android Market.

You can visit the website of IP webcam: http://ip-webcam.appspot.com/ for viewing its features. On the website, you can find screenshots of how you can configure the application.

2. DroidCam Wireless Webcam

DroidCam requires you to install a PC client application. The good thing about this app is that it can be used wirelessly by means of the Wi-Fi feature of your phone. Because of this feature, the DroidCam is considered to be one of the most desired webcam apps for Android. You can download it from the Android Market. You can also visit its homepage to download the app: http://www.dev47apps.com/.

The PC client app is only available for Windows OS. In order to use it, after installing the app, you need to specify the IP address of your computer in which you have installed the DriodCam software. Before you launching any chatting application such as Skype for video chat on your PC, you need to establish a connection between the phone and PC. This can be through DroidCam home screen on your phone.

LG Ally Review – Android Phone with Cool Features

Powered by Verizon, LG Ally is the new Android phone that has got cool features and is often compared with other Android phones like HTC DROID ERIS and Motorola DEVOUR. Like Motorola DEVOUR, the LG Ally is a slider phone. The overall design of the LG Ally VS740 is not the best and it just looks any other large screen display phone. It has got rounded corners and it measures 4.56 x 2.22 x 0.62 inches. The phone is slightly on a bulky side as it weighs 158g. The phone’s body is made up of plastic and appears to be quite durable.

The capactive touchscreen of the LG Ally measures 3.2 inches. It is a WVGA display with a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels and is capable of displaying 262k colors. The display of the HTC DROID ERIS and Motorola DEVOUR are of similar size but has less resolution. Images and text appear crisp and clear but becomes unclear when you view it under direct sunlight. Below the display screen, you can find two touch-sensitive buttons meant for back and search and also you can find four physical buttons meant for send, home, menu and end/screen lock/power. Above the display, there is a small notification light that displays different colors for notifying new message, call alerts, low battery, and charging.

On the right side of the LG Ally VS740, you can find the camera shutter and microSD slot whereas on the left you can access the volume controller and microUSB slot. The 3.5mm audio jack can be found on the top. At the rear is located the 3.2MP camera with LED flash. Slide the display horizontally and you will be able to see the 4-row QWERTY keyboard which is very easy to use for writing text messages and emails.

Even the navigational d-pad located at the right side of the keyboard responds well. Since LG Ally runs on Android 2.1, the phone’s performance is quite good and it provides the user to choose from 5 home screens. The Live Wallpapers feature automatically changes the wallpaper depending on the time of the day, the songs that you are listening and by touching the display. The voice command app gives accurate result when you make search by saying a search query. The usual Verizon apps can also be found on the LG Ally VS740.

The 3.2 megapixel camera with Flash has got plenty of features like autofocus, scene mode, geo location, etc. The images appear rich but are not the best. It allows you to record videos at 25fps with a resolution of 640 x 800 pixels. The 3D overhaul automatically sorts image and video files according to location and date. The video player can play DivX and Xvid video formats. The music player has features like cover art, displays song info but lacks equalizer. The sound output through the earphone and loud speaker is average.

For aGPS, you can make use of Google Maps. You can surf on the web at 3G speed and Wi-Fi. The Webkit web browser is very user-friendly; however, it lacks Flash. You can access your Word, Excel, PowerPoint and PDF files through ThinkFree Office application. The internal memory of the LG Ally VS740 is 256MB and can read up to 32GB of microSD. The Li-Ion 1500 mAh battery gives a talk time of over 7.5 hours and stand-by time of nearly 500 hours.
