Klyph for Facebook (Android) - A slick and fast alternative to official Facebook app


Developer Quote: "Everyone gets tired of the ugly, slow official Facebook app so why don’t you give a try to Klyph: a new client for Facebook. With a nice and smooth UI designed following the Android Design Guidelines, Klyph looks like the Google+ app but for Facebook."

Almost everyone with a smartphone uses the Facebook app, and almost everyone agrees that it's ugly and slow. That's why there's room for a better alternative, and Klyph could be what you're looking for.

What's On My Android - Super Clock Widget and Missed It!

I always, or almost always, love my Android home screen setup, but the last few days have been especially good to me with some great widgets I've found. I want to share them with you, my wonderful and dear readers.


The one on top is called Super Clock Widget, and comes in a free or paid version.

Developer Quote: "We call it, Super Clock! You get all useful information here. Clock, Calendar, Battery Meter, Weather information, Timezone and even Alarm Clock. All on a single widget. It is lightweight (both apk size and data traffic), efficient and effective widget, functional yet attractive widget."

The one underneath is a great-looking, inexpensive widget called Missed It! that shows at a glance your missed calls, texts, emails, and more.

Developer Quote: "Get information about the number of missed calls, unread SMS, unread e-mail messages and notifications from virtually any application a glance with this simple yet very customizable widget."

Life360 Family Locator (Android/iPhone/iPad) - A family that tracks together, stays together


Developer Quote: "Family Locator by Life360 is the most accurate and powerful family locator service. Using the latest GPS tracking technology, Life360 Family Locator lets you: a. See family location(s) on an invite-only map, b. Choose when to share your location, c. Chat one-on-one and with a group, d. Get alerts when family members reach favorite locations and e. Track a stolen or lost phone."

Who can remember what life was like before GPS tracking? Living life not knowing where anyone was unless you called a landline and they picked up - then you knew they had to be there - but otherwise, no clue. Remember what it was like to worry? Why isn't my kid back home yet? Did something happen to my husband? Geez, what a mess. Thankfully, with this awesome app, our worries are just a bit fewer.
