Android App News: Time for TIME Mobile, Live Wallpaper, Aol’s New Suite

Sat, Jul 24, 2010

Android, Mobile

We’ve scoured the web to find the best in the latest news around Android apps and we’d love to share our findings with you. TIME has released their free app, we have tips on how to find Live Wallpaper for your Android phone and Aol’s latest new suite of apps for Android.

TIME Mobile Comes to Android for Free

As reported by MobileContentToday, TIME has released their brand new, free app for Android called “TIME Mobile”. The app features a magazine style look, and all of the sections featured from TIME’s website. You may also use the app to read the different sections featured and can swipe over to them with ease. Also worth pointing out is that the app may be used in both portrait and landscape which will help when Android tablets start releasing sometime in the future. If you’d like to download the app for yourself, search “TIME Mobile” on the Market or scan the QR code on the AndroidZoom Android Market.

How to Find Live Wallpaper

One of the best features of Android (2.1 or higher) is the ability to have Live Wallpaper light up and dance on your home screen. While phones that run Android 2.1 come with some stock Live Wallpapers, they don’t fit the bill for everyone. AndroidCreations.net looks to help fix that, as it is a website dedicated to Live Wallpapers and showcasing them to you.

You may find images in their handy thumbnail view, along with videos and AppBrain links. Of course, not every Live Wallpaper is free, but may be worth it for that added customization.

Aol’s New Pair of Android Apps

Aol, looking to cash in on the Android rush, has released a few Android apps. The first app they have released is simply called “Aol” and appears to be a simple portal to the featured sites that Aol encompasses. From sites such as Engadget and Moviefone to general news and AIM, the app seems to have it all when it comes to Aol. One other neat feature is the ability to Voice Search and customize the app’s color.

The other app is called “Aol Daily Finance” and basically allows you to monitor the stock market however you need to, with ease and elegance. Along with this access, you can also have it bring in your personal stock portfolio and get detailed information about any company’s stocks.
