TigerDirect Hijinx Android App Now Available!

TigerDirect Android App in the Android Store
TigerDirect’s got an Android App! In collaboration with a currently running TV commercial, a new “Tiger Hijinx” app for Android 2.2 and above is now available on Android Market.

In this app you’ll find an incredible useful world of tools, I mean … world of ridiculous things that only Logan would say. For now the apps functionality is to stop conversations, start conversations or even fill dead space with some of the things Logan would say. Well, does say.

Some of the audio samples are actually outtakes from making radio commercials – and not being able to say anything correctly, others are just, well, plain ridiculous. Fresh off the presses and into the Android Market for your downloading pleasure, feel free to scan the QR code to download your Tiger Hijinx Android App now!

It’s a 100% free app, doesn’t require registration, doesn’t compile your contacts – it just makes you laugh!

TigerDirect shows you how to Protect your PC

TigerDirect’s showing off the latest in protecting your PC on some local television segments across the country, and here is our first clip from WSVJ 6 Miami/Ft. Lauderdale showcasing products from CA, LoJack and PhoneGuard.

Instant Communication – PTT made easy with TiKL

TIKL_icon Okay, some people just LOVE push to talk (PTT) – think back about 5 years when it was all the rage.  Sometimes annoying, yes.  Useful othertimes as well.  But I never liked the “walkie talkie” button thingy.  Made it seem too ‘low tech.’

Well, TiKL has released an app for Android that makes it cool, very ‘transponder’ like and actually is GREAT for when you are driving in the car.  No need to call when you can just ring in. 

It uses our primary phone # on your device as your “id,” simply listing all of your contacts and you choose them to add to your list.  There is a do-not disturb mode, which the “Call info” button will allow you to obtain the recent caller information.  Just hold down  the button on the center of the screen, you’ll get a red glow, and talk away.  

tikl_qrcodeA confirmation tone sounds after you let go (or is an electronic “over” LOL).  It’s a great app, glad to see it’s free and you can get it too!  Just scan the QR code here to get it straight from the Android Market. 

If you’d like, you can also join the TiKL fan page on Facebook

What a great app I stumbled across today.  I’ve been getting office co-workers to install it all day!  Enjoy.

Android Apps You Should get

With the forthcoming release of the Droid X from Verizon on July 15th, people who love the Android operating system are getting more and more excited.  For those who have been using android, or are recent converts, they love it.  It’s so easy to use, Google integration makes life joyful, and I could go on and on…

bezier_live_wallpaper_linkTo give your droid a new look, check out the live wallpaper called ‘Bezier’ as recommended by Ryan Whitwam  over at Tested.com.  It’s a great live wallpaper for those with Android 2.1 and higher, and unlike the resource intensive live backgrounds (like the awesome Mario one), this one reportedly does not drain the life from your phone.   To check it out, use the QRcode on the left from your phone – like I need to tell you this.

urban_dictionary_linkUrban Dictionary has provided people with a great resource for many years – and it  often gives you words you never knew about and sometimes they have very interesting definitions. 

There is a great new app which harnesses the power of Urban Dictionary for the Android, and even provides a “Word Widget” that allows you to simply shake your phone for a new word anytime!  Get it today from the QRcode on the right.

Well, those are the two recommendations I have for you today, but next time we’ll review a streaming music app and how it really works in combination with other phone services and applications IRL.
