IFTTT announces Android beta sign-up, deletes post – Phandroid.com

To build a messaging app on iPhone, you have to create your own communication channel — essentially an IM service. But on Android, you can simply replace the built-in Messages Read More

Nokia Lumia 930: Can Nokia convince you to ditch Apple & Android – Daily Star

Nokia is adding yet another smartphone to its portfolio – the Lumia 930. The Finnish phone maker is hoping the sleek new design and quality features will lure customers away from Apple and Android. With an updated design and running the new Windows 8.1 operating system, it looks like a decent phone. The Lumia 930 will bring a five-inch 1080p HD screen which, apparently, is as good as LG’s market leading G2 display. You’ll also get a 20-megapixel PureView camera, which is bound to be good given Nokia’s record on top smartphone snappers.
