copter swing, just when you thought your phone is safe …

Trust me, if you think FlappyBirds was tough, well try this.

No i am serious. It is diabolically tough.

TGB can never get past 5points.
I fear for my Android phone`s screen.

Oh well, Copter Swing, now available on iOS App Store and Google Android PlayStore.

You have been warned.

Enough of the Apple bashing Samsung!

To Samsung Mobile,

Dude, get a grip of your frigging products first before you freaking start bashing Apple.  Everyone who reads TheGeekyBeng knows that I am no Apple iOS fanboy, but really, for a brand whose atrocious battery life is classified as Rotten, you really have irked the hell out of TGB who is gonna issue you a challenge!

I will take my Lumia 1520, my Sony Xperia Z2 to compete with your BEST newest Device in terms of battery life and see who wins!

The Next Big Thing is ALREADY OVER!

It is the Era of Sony, XiaoMi and Microsoft Nokia!

Free MS Office for Android and iOS – Limited Time only

Apparently there is a free download of the all powerful Microsoft Office available today for iOS and Android OS.

Free Microsoft Office for iOS HERE
Free Microsoft Office for Android Platform HERE

There is a kicker though.

Free MS Office - doesn't download on Xperia Z Ultra

For some weird reasons, TGB’s Sony Xperia Z Ultra is the only device that cannot download the Freebie.

Devices that TGB has managed to download the freebie.

  • iPod Touch 5th Gen
  • iPad Mini
  • XiaoMi Mi3
  • Sony Xperia Z1
  • Sony Xperia Z

No Samsungs was touched in the process.  but TGB would love to get his hands on the new HTC M8 and try out how MS Office works on it.  *big wide grin*

 

UPDATE

APK Found.  Microsoft Office installed on my Xperia Z Ultra.  Thus it will work with ALL Android Tablets also.

Google for the APK or be nice and ask me nicely for it. 🙂

 

Why I Love Telegram – the Whatsapp Replacement Messenger!

After a series of unfortunate news about Whatsapp:

2. http://news.sky.com/story/1215826/whatsapp-sorry-for-outage-after-facebook-deal
3. http://sg.news.yahoo.com/singtel-criticised-for-proposal-to-charge-whatsapp–skype-for-network-usage-030719966.html

TGB decided to revisit his old apps that he have downloaded and yet seemingly no one seems to be crazy about it in Singapore.  And of course, he have chosen Telegram.

Not only Telegram is working across all major Mobile Platform, iOS, Android and WP8 – it also works for desktops operating systems …

Best part, it is completely free!

Here’s a complete list of apps on each different OSes that supports Telegram, some official, some unofficial.

Personally, TGB is using Migram on his Lumia 1520.  Ngram for some weird reasons didn’t work on his device and Arkagram seems a bit laggy.

For the Clueless and the totally haven’t used Instant Messaging

Hey, let’s switch to Telegram
http://telegram.org/dl

The link says it all.

For WP8 device users like me, we can download NGram, or my personal favourite, Akragram.

And it is simple to install and use. Best of all, you can seamlessly transfer between devices without losing your old messages because of different OS.

Whichever loser of a Telco that plans to charge OTT providers or their post-paid customers extra for such services should really relook into their strategies.
