HuffingtonPost.com Android app and widget helps you keep up with the news [App Reviews]
Tuesday 08th of June 2010
I’ve always wondered the exact reason news companies produce smart phone apps that basically contain the same content as their site.After using the HuffingtonPost.com Android app and widget for a couple of days, I see that the “power of the app” allows developers and content providers bring the experience and the niceties that they want their users to have.The HuffingtonPost.com app allows it’s users the ability to read any of the content that you would be able to find on the real HuffingtonPost site, yet does it in a fasion that may be more presentable. At the top of the screen are the different topics such as politics, entertainment, sports, media, technology, etc. and the stories are post vertically. It only take a swipe of a story page to switch to the next topic and I have to admit that the app loads pretty quickly.There are also “slideshows” that allow you to view the latest pictures that are coming into the Huffington Post in a gallery type of format. It is a nice touch, but I think that it may be more effective with a small caption underne
T-Mobile's My Account app update
Wednesday 24th of February 2010
Received an OTA app update from T-Mobile today that basically just added another app icon (Red "?" saying "Help") that does exactly the same thing the My Account app does, only the new one tries to sell us ringtones!Thinking I didn't need two apps doing the same thing, I tried uninstalling the My Account app since Help app can't be uninstalled. Well both of them were removed. So I reinstalled the My Account and sure enough the Help came back too.Called T-Mobile - but they said we're stuck with it. I don't have that much operating system space left so getting things I don't want is not acceptable.Bad, bad, bad T-Mobile!
My Account app and debit cards
Saturday 29th of December 2012
Maybe this belongs in the applications department, but the My Account app is unique to T-Mobile android phones, since it was written by T-Mobile, so this seems a better place to ask.Normally I pay my monthly bill with this app. It always works fine. It would continue to work fine except I closed the bank account that I used to use and now have a different debit card. The app helpfully remembers the old card number since that is the card number I used last time. There are windows to enter security codes, phone number, etc., but I can't find any way to add or change a card number.Surely I am not the first customer in the history of T-Mobile to change banks. How in the heck do I change the debit card number?

Tethering Data Shows Usage T-Mobile My Account App When Not Used??
Friday 29th of November 2013
So i jumped ship from Sprint/gs3 and picked up a nexus 5 and the 30 dollar plan from T-Mobile (still hard to believe this plan even exists). I follow the headlines so was aware of the 'free' tethering option from Tmo pre-paid. I've got my account set up and running smoothly and installed the Tmo My Account app, which is pretty awesome if I do say so myself. My question/concern is the tethering "use" within the app. After about two days of use i've allocated approximately 381.2 MB of data and so it says 6.0 MB of Mobile Hotspot /100 MB Use. The only problem is I have not turned this feature on in my Nexus 5 or even set up the hotspot and have surely not attached any other wi-fi enabled device i own to it. My initial thought was I've technically used 387.2 MB of data and it just shows this way? Either way, I'm curious to know if anyone has experienced this and if there is a quick fix or a need for one as i would love to talk with T-Mobile directly as little as possible. My apologies if this has been posted before as searching it didn't really return any helpful informati

Droid Turbo Email App and Widget
Saturday 01st of November 2014
I moved from a Droid Maxx XT1080m and my primary use is for voice calls and email via my 2 Microsoft Exchange accounts on office 365. All in all the phone is nice, a tad bit thicker and a tad larger footprint then the maxx, The email app and widget on the Maxx variant was perfect, color coded notifications, black theme, white reading pane etc...The new Turbo version is the gmail client, no colored coded notifications, it displays last folder which makes the screen busy and I use a black theme for the phone itself and the the Turbo's widget is white and yes they do have a dark them for the client but the reading pane is grey and makes it very tough to read. My only complaint with the Maxx is memory management, I am thinking I might stay with the Maxx unless someone can enlighten me on a better solution to the email client.

T-Mobile My Account App - Battery Drain!
Thursday 11th of June 2015
Have had the phone since day one, and all of a sudden, my GPS won't turn off. Just startes earlier this morning. Appears the Tmo My Account App is forcing the GPS to stay on and killing the battery. Didn't do anything wrong or different types with my phone. Can't disable or Uninstall the app either. Anyone else having this issue? Posted via the Android Central App
