    I like Mighty Text a lot. It lets you send and receive texts from your computer using your regular cell phone number.

    It is limited to wi-fi only devices, correct? MightyText works with any PC/Mac regardless of wi-fi.

    Sure Lowrider1 here you go Enjoy and have a great day.

    How to send and receive messages?

    Following these steps to send and receive messages using a web browser:
    1. Login to AirDroid web desktop.
    2. Find the Message icon and click it to open. You can see all your text messages here.
    3. To send a message, click New Message in the Message window, input recipient, your message, and click Send. You can also send messages to a group of recipients.

    I tried using it when it was Read It later. Maybe I had it configured wrong, but for my phone it always needs to connect to the internet to download the information for me to read. In my eyes, it kind of defeats the purpose. It should download to my phone when there is a connection for reading offline.

    Found a really cool app today!!! Haven't tried it but somone in the SGS3 Forum posted it.

    It's called Stick it! and it allows you to move your video anywhere on your screen!!! No need to port THAT feature from the SGS3!!!

    Yeah I can see it being really nice tablets. I don't think I would use it on my phone, but I'll keep in mind when I replace my iPad with an Android tablet in a few months

    It is obvious: the most battery wasters for Android phones are applications and services that using connectivity for check for updates, synchronize stuff. If your special app will tell you about this, then what you will do? You cannot uninstall built-in apps and services like google, facebook, etc. Therefore the Juice Defender will do simple work for you: cut of wi-fi, 2/3/4G when screen is off. And this functionality is the key point of saving your phone battery. The rest of the features of Juice Defender like task killing, brightness adjustment etc.. are almost useless. These ones will give you maybe +5% of battery time, but user can easily lost in Juice Defender settings. Personally me prefer Long Battery Life app, which simply do this job by cutting connections when I am not wish to be connected (screen is off) and not aware of it. -IMHO

    I have been waiting on an app that could back up my mp3's and video for safe keeping so when i need a restore, all i have to do is reload my saved mp3s and videos right from the android instead of having to connect to my computer to transfer things back onto the device.


    My Backup Pro has updated their app to do just that!!!

    True but those are the actual files and this new feature comes in handy when ib want to reload videos or mp3s that long since may have been deleted but saved in one of your old backups.

    Total waste of money. I got a longer battery life when I uninstalled it. The Android system obviously manages the battery better.
