    Three weeks ago Sling Media teased Windows Mobile fans with the forthcoming Windows Phone 7 version of its SlingPlayer Mobile video-streaming software, promising higher resolutions than it ever before delivered to a Windows handset. Today the app makes its Marketplace debut, available for nearly $30. When we took a look at the nearly-complete software we saw Sling taking full advantage of the processing power that will be standard for all Windows Phone 7 devices, letting the app display four times as many pixels as the old Windows Mobile version could. The Sling/Windows Mobile relationship ...

    Microsoft has added a Windows Phone 7 app gallery to the Bing Visual Search library of structured data sets. Besides offering a convenient and visually pleasing manner in which to browse the Marketplace, the gallery allows the user to filter the full catalog of software -- updated daily -- by several different criteria, including category, sub-category, and price. This gives us the ability to tease out the fact that out of the 1,658 programs in the market at the time of writing, 483 are free, 753 cost 99 cents, and only 16 are over $10. Unsurprisingly, games are by far the most populated ...

    Cocktail Flow has to be one of the most visually-rich applications for searching alcoholic drink recipes on any mobile platform - and it's coming to Windows Phone 7. What separates this cocktail app from others I've seen is the presence of a virtual stock cabinet. Simply tap on the ingredients (spirits, liqueur, mixers), which are represented with images, and the app will recommend drinks to make. As a bonus, it can offer advice on which additional items to buy in order to make even more drinks out of the contents in your cabinet. You can also search through a list of all cocktails, by ...

    Two of the most popular app stores for jailbroken Apple products like the iPhone and iPad have announced an alliance, bringing together the catalogs of Cydia and Rock Your Phone after nearly two years of competition. According to both companies, Rock's entire catalog will be transferred over to Cydia's store, along with customer app licenses; users without a Cydia account will be asked to create one in order to access their Rock products. By combining their efforts instead of competing for customers and developers, the merged entity promises to eliminate duplicate processes and concentrate ...

    Today is a federal holiday in the United States of America which commemorates the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, declaring independence from the Kingdom of Great Britain. It's commonly referred to as "The Fourth of July", but I take exception to that term, it negates the history and meaning behind the holiday - it's real name is "Independence Day". With that in mind, check out my "Independence Day apps for Android" video. In it I'll cover nine apps and one Live Wallpaper in 12 minutes. Take a look!

    Reader Zohner recently asked, "Are you aware of any porn filters for Android phones?" What a great question! A lot of what we'll cover applies to any phone, and potentially your home computer, but some of it is Android specific. Steve Jobs threw in his two bits when he was asked about whether or not Apple would allow app installations via any source other than iTunes. "There's a porn store for Android... you can download it, your kids can download it. That's a place we don't want to go, so we're not going to." (Hopefully you'll see why this is a ridiculous statement by the end of the ...

    One of the things I've wanted from day one was a way to view all the Android apps in the Market on my desktop computer. At Google IO we were given a taste of what that might look like, and today you can do that -- almost. Head over to market.android.com to see what it looks like! In its current version, the web-based view of the Market will let you filter apps by featured, top paid, and top free apps. You can then select an app to view it's title, developer, description and a couple screen shots. What's still missing are user comments, the entire library of apps (only featured apps are ...

    Back in 2008 it was reported that Google had a "remote kill switch" built in to the Android OS. "Google may discover a product that violates the developer distribution agreement in such an instance, Google retains the right to remotely remove those applications from your device at its sole discretion." We've never seen exactly what that means, until recently. In a blog post by Rich Cannings, Android Security Lead, the decision to forcefully remove two apps from phone was explained: "Every now and then, we remove applications from Android Market due to violations of our Android Market ...

    Let's say you're browsing the Android Market and decide to go all-in and actually purchase an app. Most apps are free, but some cost money. Those that do are generally fairly inexpensive (less than US$10), but there are those that can get into some serious cash. Once the price of an app raises above your "pain threshold" you might be hesitant to make that purchase. I'm here to tell you, you needn't worry! Google's Market is unlike any I've seen before. You can buy an app, download and install it, and see if you like it (or make sure it works). If you don't, not a problem, within 24 hours ...

    It has taken a few years, but Slide2Play has finally hit version 1.0. S2P is a popular music player alternative for Windows Phone and the latest version has undergone a number of changes - all of which can be viewed in the change log below. Unfortunately, it's no longer a free app and will now carry a charge of $3.99 on Windows Marketplace for mobile. Although it's now a paid app, this is a positive move for fans of the player because it will likely translate to more frequent bug fixes and updates. A_C, the developer of S2P and S2U2, certainly deserves a reward for all the hard work he's ...
