Amazon update helps to prevent accidental app purchases

Amazon update prevent accidental app purchases
Before recent events, Amazon was considered the most popular online app / mobile phone shop around; however, it has recently been forced to release an update which fixes an all-too-common complaint it had been receiving regarding its service...

The update is primarily aimed at stopping its users from accidentally purchasing apps that they did not want to buy. This was a surprisingly common complaint lodged with the Amazon AppStore and the company came under fire from tech bloggers around the globe, who failed to see why Amazon could not implement the simple fix required to stop the problem arising in the first place.

Amazon have now been forced to follow in the footsteps of rivals iTunes, who have a safeguard measure in place on their iTunes Store, preventing users from accidentally purchasing an app that they had no intention of buying. In order to purchase apps from the iTunes Store, a password is required.

However, this too has come under fire from some critics, who highlight the fact that no password is required to purchase subsequent apps during the same browsing session after the initial app has been purchased. This has also led to accidental purchases from their users – a particular problem considering Apple operate a 'no refund' policy on any purchases made from the iTunes Store.

Due to the fact that Amazon's AppStore is not part of the Google Android Market, the process for updating it is a little different than that of most apps. Users have been informed that when the update is available for their smartphone device, a message should appear in their notifications bar, which will prompt them to download and install the update. Those who cannot wait to get their hands on the update can simply remove the app from their device and download the updated version directly from Amazon.

QuickGoogle Jailbreak Tweak for iPhone

We don’t know what took so long time before the release of such an app. But the thing is this app is finally here and it’s working amazingly.

QuickGoogle uses an Activator action pull to pop up the Google Search box anytime and anywhere you want. It’s very easy to use this app. You can also set the Activator action of your choice. You can also choose “Shake Device” to activate. However, it’s not that type of complete version that it has to be. The developer has not put the “image search”, “news” options in that notification box. But when this will be updated, we are expecting to see more in it. So, let’s wait and watch what features the future update will bring with it.

We don’t know any similar release like this in the iTunes yet. But what we can say is that this Tweak is unique and one of its kind. You can get this Tweak from the Cydia store. Google is the best search engine for you and when you have it in the form of a Tweak, you must not ignore it.

To download it, just search for QuickGoogle in cydia.

Huawei X1 Gaga, Midrange Android Smartphone

Huawei X1 Gaga
FCC has approved this new smartphone and it’s by Huawei with Android installed in it. The smartphone is referred to as Huawei Gaga. Actually Huawei has trademarked this name in the U.S. and it is being said that they will use this name for this smartphone. Now, let’s wait and watch if Lady Gaga has something to say about it.

It’s not available in the U.S. right now as the FCC has approved this to work on 850/900 GSM and 850 WCDMA bands. It means we are not certain for its launch in the U.S but we are expecting to see it there in the near future. Portuguese Orange has recently launched this set as Optimus Stockholm and we have heard that it will be released in the European markets quite soon. We are waiting for its U.S release and we will inform you when it will be available here.

The Huawei X1 has Android 2.2 installed in it. It has 528 MHz processor and also has the MicroSD card support. It has 2.8 inch QVGA touch screen display and 3.2 megapixel camera on its back. It supports 3G and Wi-Fi too. However all these features do not bring it in a high-end smartphone category?

Google Nexus 3 is Actually Nexus 4G?

LG and HTC were among favorites to make the Google Nexus 3. But we have to discuss some other thing and that is the specs of this phone. Some sources have revealed that there will be no quad core Processor included. This is not good to hear but let’s see what we get when it will finally release.

There will be likely a dual core TI OMAP 4460 processor or Snapdragon from Qualcomm in the third Google phone revealed by BGR source. The processor will be of 1.2 to 1.5 GHz. So, the device may not come according to our expectations. Other specs will include display of 720p HD and that’s a big step. The camera will be 5MP and that’s also very advanced. It will also include 1GB of RAM and 4G LTE connectivity. What remains is a 1MP camera at the front and Android 4.0 to call it as Nexus 4G. However the phone is not yet released and we can’t say anything for sure. It will be launched at Thanksgiving this year. Let’s see what will come out when it is finally released.
