I want to share a small Android App with you, that I came across, called Fast Finder. Once installed on your Android Device (smartphone or tablet) you simply invoke a search by tapping on the Fast Finder icon. A search dialog box will quickly appear where you can type in whatever it is you are looking for (i.e. files, apps, contacts, songs and videos). I am finding, as I use it more and more, that it is extremely useful in finding (and launching) apps and when searching for contacts. Super, Super fast! Definitely a keeper on my phone…

I discovered Nox App Player on FreewareFiles and it has me interested; however, if anyone out there has installed this, I would be interested in knowing what their experience was. The Nox App Player is a 277MB install and serves as an Android Emulator. What that means is, if you install Nox App Player you can install and run Android apps on your Windows based computer through the emulator.
Although there are several programs providing an Android environment on PC, it is difficult to get a complete Android experience using the traditional emulators. However, Nox App Player provides an interface that looks like an actual Android device in all ways. The intuitive emulator is based on Android 4.4.2 and compatible with both AMD and x86 systems.

Just did a revamping of the software Downloads Page… The page consists of feeds from numerous reputable software and app sites that primarily specializes in FREE software. I am currently using this as my “go to” source to review software listings and to see what is new and/or has been updated. The list is very, very long… If you hover your mouse pointer over a software title that interests you, a floating description will appear.
