App Review - twicca

twicca is a fantastic and fully featured Twitter client for Android. With lots of customisation options and a fantastic widget, its easy to see why its one of the most popular tweeting tools available.

I've been using twicca now for the last 7 months and have found it to be easily the best Twitter client on the platform. Like most people I've dabbled in the other Twitter apps available, mostly when recommended by friends, but despite often being impressed with the latest 'bells and whistles' they offer, I always end up coming back to twicca.

Taking Screenshots on the Samsung Galaxy S without Root

Try this nice and simple way to take screenshots with your Samsung Galaxy S I9000

About a week after buying my Samsung Galaxy S (I9000) i noticed some odd pictures showing up in my gallery of what appeared to be screenshots of my home screen. After a little searching, I found out that within this particular handset, Samsung have built in the ability to take screens of your device without the need for rooting.

'home' and 'back' buttons

To create a screenshot, simply press and hold the 'back' key and then press the 'home' key. You'll receive a notification on the handset confirming a screenshot has been saved, along with a shutter sound. The screenshot will save to your phone memory in /sdcard/ScreenCapture.
