New App: WeTransfer hits the Play Store, allows file transfers of up to 10GB at once

wetransfer1

It’s pretty annoying to find that a email to a friend with a bunch of photos didn’t end up sending because of your email’s attachment size limit.

But with new app WeTransfer, you won’t have to worry about exceeding that limit.

The app lets you send up to 10GB of data at once to another email address. The receiving address will get a download link — from there, they’ll be able to download all the photos on their device.

It’s pretty simple, and that’s pretty much all you can ask from an app — that it works, and that it’s easy. Hit the break for a list of the app’s features, a gallery of screenshots and a link to the app in the Play Store.

Creators of WordPress release “Selfies” app to Play Store

Selfies_App

Automattic, the company behind the creation of WordPress, has added an app to the Play Store called “Selfies.”

The app does pretty much what you’d expect it to. Nothing  too fancy, but its simplicity might be its strength.

“Selfies” lets users take selfies, caption and filter them, and share them into a stream that can be seen by other users. So basically it’s Instagram for selfies but with a much smaller user base. You can also react to other people’s selfies with your own selfies, adding a Snapchat-like feature to the app.

The chances that this app hits the big time and catches on with the masses is pretty low (considering the saturation of the selfies app market), but the app is still in its infancy, so we’ll see where it goes from here. Hit the break for the link to the app in the Play Store as well as a photo gallery of screenshots.

Access wallpapers from different OEMs, Android versions, ROMs or other OS’s with DroidPack app

droidpack

Admit it. You’ve looked at a buddy’s Android phone and thought, “Damn, that wallpaper is nice.”

You weren’t sure how to get the wallpaper for your own phone — it’s not like wallpapers have highly accessible names that you can just “search.”

Or can you? A new arrival in the Play Store allows you to do just that.

DroidPack, app app created by XDA Forum Member donniemceduns, allows you to select between the stock wallpapers from various OEMs, Android versions, ROMs and even other operating systems (yes, this means iOS). The collection is completely categorized and lets you download the wallpapers straight from the app.

It’s a nice addition to the Play Store — go check it out for yourself! Hit the break for the link to the app in the Play Store as well as a gallery of screen shots.

FireChat is a bold new take on messaging as it does not require any internet connection

firechat_app_icon

It is just as bold as it seems. FireChat is a brand new messaging application available today in the Play Store and it takes a very different approach to connect users. Don’t have an WiFi connection? Fine. Don’t have a data connection? That’s fine, too. FireChat relies upon what developer Open Garden calls “mesh networking technology.” This technology uses nearby devices to communicate with one another. For optimal communication, the developer suggests withing 30 feet, but I have seen reports of a 100 foot boundary being capable.

What FireChat does is bring people in a particular area together. So at a sports bar, for example, everyone can be chatting away in a loud room. The developer is composed of a team of just 10 people and the app is already available on iOS. The release of FireChat in the Play Store is just another step toward bringing everyone together in one place.

‘The Room 2′ launches in the Play Store

The Room 2

The folks over at Fireproof Games are back with another edition of the “The Room” game.

Like it’s prequel, The Room 2 is a “physical puzzler, wrapped in a mystery game, inside a beautifully tactile 3D world.”

I’ve never played the prequel, but I have definitely thought about buying it before, especially because it has great reviews. The new game shouldn’t fall short of expectations either.

Chromebook 11

Remember when Google and HP recalled the Chromebook 11 because of overheating charger issues? Well the device is back and better than ever with a (hopefully) perfectly working charger— you can get one now for $279, the same price it was being offered for before.

If you need a refresher on the specs, it packs an Exynos 5250 processor, 2GB RAM, a 1366 x 768 display.

Some extra information just came in as well— Best Buy has the Chromebook 11 with Verizon LTE connectivity listed online as well. This variant costs $379 with a potential $50 mail-in rebate. You can add it to a shared data plan for only $10 if you’re up for it.
