Camera Zoom FX has consistently proven itself to be the go-to replacement camera application for Android smartphones, and today the app has been given a major overhaul.

As we inch closer to the impending launch of LG’s Nexus 4, Verizon has put the Galaxy Nexus on sale. Last year’s Nexus smartphone is now available for $230, with no need to sign up for a painful new contract. Keep in mind the units in question are “Certified Pre-owned”, but Verizon claims that each phone has passed over 100 quality checkpoints to assure the utmost condition. And, each device comes with a full 1-year warranty, meaning if something happens to the device, Verizon will replace it free of charge.
Sure, the Galaxy Nexus may not be the latest and greatest, or even sport relatively fresh hardware, but at just $230 it’s difficult to pass up this opportunity. For comparison, Sony’s unlocked Xperia Activ –which sports a single core processor, a 3-inch display (320×480) and 3G– costs $250. Add this to the fact that this deal won’t affect your contract or future upgrades, and you’re left with one incredible deal. Hit the source link below before they’re sold out.

The rumor mill has been correct yet again: For months we have seen numerous leaks concerning an LG produced Nexus phone, and it seems these leaks have been spot on. Today, LG’s Head of Mobile Product Planning, Amit Gujral, announced that the LG Nexus will be unveiled (I use the term loosely) on October 29th pending a yet unannounced Google event. LG might have jumped the gun on this, or maybe this was just a gaff by Amit Gujral, but all the information released lines up with all the leaked data we’ve seen.
Gujral also detailed specifications of the device: a 4.7 inch display, 1.5GHz quad core cpu and Android 4.2 will be packed into this “LG Nexus”, although he failed to mention whether Android 4.2 will be called Key Lime Pie, or continue with the Jelly Bean monicker. Now, practice your best surprised expression for October 29th so we dont hurt Google’s pride too much for the big launch that we’ve known about for months.

TunnelBear VPN is one of those apps that’s extremely simple, but is very powerful. There are two really important reasons why you need to download TunnelBear VPN today, and many of you will fall into both. The first if for those who frequently use public WiFi hotspots. Everything you do on a public WiFi is available to hackers and that includes passwords and just about anything else. You can’t always avoid public WiFi’s so how do you safely take care of your business? A Virtual Private Network (VPN) is the only way. Now you can set up your own personal VPN, but who has the time to mess with that. Wouldn’t it be nice if there was something safe and secure without all the hassle? Well TunnelBear VPN is just that. It provides “safe-passage and privacy” for Android tablets and smartphones with a secure, encrypted connection to either a U.S. or UK server (more on that in a bit). What this means is that if you are utilizing TunnelBear on an open WiFi network, anyone who intercepts your data won’t be able to read it thanks to the AES 128-bit encryption.
