The best way to analyze and evaluate a product is by comparing it with other similiar ones. Thus, we place special emphasis on software comparisons.

The appearance of IM apps has rocked how we communicate. Whether you use WhatsApp, Telegram, or another of their many variants, chatting is easier than ever thanks to the immediacy and cost of sending each message – that is, exactly $0.00.

Oddly, though, they remain important due to the growing number of services that use them to send info or two-step verification codes. Since it looks like the SMS as a medium isn’t going anywhere, we’ve done you a favor and picked the best free SMS apps for Android to replace the default one on your phone.

Yesterday was Goku Day in Japan (the kanjis the represent the numbers 5 and 9 are read as “Go” and “Ku”) and we didn’t want to miss the chance to pay tribute to this legendary series by putting together this list of the best free Dragon Ball games for Android.

Unless you were asleep or don’t know what a social network is, you probably noticed that yesterday was Star Wars Day.

April 27th, the anniversary of the founding of the International Council of Design (ico-D), is World Graphic Design Day. ico-D is the international body that promotes and defends activities related to design, essential as it has become to communications, marketing, and practically all professional activities done online.
