A Great Android App Review Site –


Here’s a great site i found for Android application reviews. is one of the few sites I’ve seen out there with honest reviews about Android applications.  It looks like its just starting out but it’s being updated constantly with some pretty useful apps.  I use quite a few on there already like Yelp, ChompSMS, and Astro File Manage but have found a couple apps i didn’t know about like Bump and Checkers for Android.  For each review the author gives a pretty thorough rundown of its pros and cons and then gives it a star rating.  It also allows users to make their own comments about the review and their own star rating as well.

One of the really neat things is the QR codes the reviewer puts with each review.  If you like the review and think its an app that you can actually use, you can scan the QR code on the screen with your phone using bar code scanner and it will take you directly to the Android Market so you can purchase it or download it for free.  Here’s what a QR code looks like:

So if you’re looking for some new apps for your G1, Nexus One, or any other type of Android device i seriously suggest you check out this site.  I have the RSS feed book marked myself so I can see the new apps as they’re reviewed.  you can do the same  here.


Force Close and “android.process.acore has stopped unexpectedly” On Home Rotate

i was getting the following error on my Android based G1 with the Cyanogen 4.2.15 ROM whenver i rotated the view from the home screen: “The process android.process.acore has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again” and “Force Close”.

The fix to the problem was removing one of the desktop widgets.  In this case it was the TasKiller widget, i did a long tap on the widget and dragged it to the garbage can. Problem solved.  Apparently this is a common problem with desktop widgets when you upgrade to a newer ROM.
