Slices.me for Web Now Open to the Public

Slices.me, a web-based application for the new Slices for Twitter application on Android open for public (while still in beta) today. The web interface is an attempt to give the same look and feel as the popular android application on the web.

I gave it a few minutes and I must admit they have done a splendid job although there are still bugs in it like, I was not able to pull anyone’s twitter profile even after multiple click using Firefox browser. Hopefully it will improve in near future.

How did you find Slices for Android? if its not your favorite twitter application, which one is it and why? I’d love to know about it in the comments below

When am I getting Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich aka ICS) on my phone?

The most frequent question I have been asked lately is when is my HTC Blah Blah model getting Android’s Ice Cream Sandwich? (aka ICS aka Android 4.0)

Here is an official note by HTC on when your phone will get the update. Please note that generally its observed that some devices may get updates after 45days of the period announced in Pakistan. So be patient and try the official updates once they roll out.

Native Screenshots in Android Ice Cream Sandwich

Like native Panoramic mode in the Android Ice Cream Sandwich camera (Android v 4.0.4), I also have Native screenshots capability (just didn’t knew how to use it until 3 weeks ago) with my OTA update to ICS. All I have to do is, hit the power and the volume down key at once to take the screenshot.

Review: The Avengers Live Wallpapers for Android

So, I installed the The Avengers Live Wallpapers for my Android Phone since it was on Google Play’s (previously known as Google Market) feature list

Almost immediately after installing it, I could see annoying little nag screens on every screen unlock, like the one you can see in the screenshot below.

Which is pretty nasty way to convince me to buy the pro version. I uninstalled it right away. I highly recommend everyone not to install it on their cell else you’ll have to uninstall it later.
