A piece of news that’s managed to slip through our fingers amidst all the recent news we’ve been covering is actually quite a significant in its own right – for Android fans and Australians in particular.
Imgur, the popular image hosting service used most widely as a fast and easy option for sharing images to online communities and social networks have officially released their own app in the Play Store. What’s more is the app for the time being is exclusive for Android users in Australia. Yes that’s right, if you’re on Android and an Australian – you’ll be part of a small group of people to give this app a whirl.
Bear in mind, out of the countless …

We stumbled across this app recently and thought that Nissan really did a top job. Let me tell you here that the app cannot do everything that your car can do. It has a specific set of functions but is the start of what is to be a very bright future for the mobile and auto-mobile industries. The app also only currently works with the Nissan Leaf, but we can hope it will be seen on more models very shortly.
As none of us at the AA Team actually own a Nissan Leaf we trialled out the demo of the app and really liked what we saw. We can’t speak for the usability of the app, but we can tell …
I’m always looking to find applications to make things better. That is what SMS Popup does – it makes SMSing better. There are a couple of reasons why this is the case. Firstly, it allows me to quickly preview messages. Secondly, it allows me to quickly respond to such messages. The features, to a normal onlooker, would see them as being fairly average – but I can assure you that they are not.
First of all, the ability to quickly preview messages is something that is not all that common on Android. Prior to SMS Popup, I would receive a message, unlock my phone, pull down the notification bar, and go into my messages. Now, I receive a message, and …
Here at Android Australia, few of us were privy to the days when Instagram was a small, underground community. However, I was one of the few lucky enough to have some friends so intrinsically obsessed with Instagram since a very early time, that I was able to see what we were missing out on long before it debuted on Android.
But something new has now arrived. It’s a lot like Instagram – you share photos and post them to a profile that other users can look at. But it’s not Instagram – It’s Streamzoo.
Streamzoo is a wonderland for photos, with a much more advanced editing control than Instagram, as well as the unique ability to follow #hashtags.
The editing …
I have heard the same problem from Android users again and again; I hate the keypad. Fortunately, I have found a solution. Over the past couple of days, I have been trialling a new keyboard on my Samsung Galaxy S II. At first, it was difficult to get used to – different position of the backspace key, new shortcuts and other, weird innovations. However, Siine has grown into something I did not
expect it to. To put it simply, it is awesome.
I will admit to having tried other keyboard applications such as SwiftKey X, and they are great. However, the issue for me was never word prediction, such as SwiftKey provides. It was the speed and ease …
We have stumbled across this really nifty app, which acts as an ‘Australian Android Market.’ It contains a compilation of every Australian specific app released to the market and organises them in an easy to navigate manner. For those of you who are thinking, ‘well this couldn’t be hard, there aren’t that many Australian apps,’ we have some astonishing news for you. Australia Android has compiled 1188 different apps which are relevant to us here down under.
For those of you who live in Melbourne: how many times have you tried to find ‘Tram Tracker’ the popular iPhone app, only to find yourself lost and confused? Australia Android will help you out and tell you that the correct app you’re …
Happy Wednesday everyone!
