Android Backup Application MyPhoneExplorer

After failing to get my HTC phone to sync for the past several attempts because of an error message saying “Fail to mount / unmount device storage card”, I started to look for a solution.

Ran across MyPhoneExplorer which has a client for your phone or tablet which can be downloaded at Google Play (formerly Android Market). The software for your PC can be downloaded here.

MyPhoneExplorer is a really handy application which will allow you to synchronize your phone or tablet to your PC. You can sync your files, contact, calendar, text messages and more using your USB cable, Bluetooth or Wi-Fi.

I won’t re-invent the wheel and do a review since Android Tapp has an excellent review of MyPhoneExplorer available.

If you are sick of the HTC sychronization software, I recommend you try MyPhoneExplorer.

Android App Review: Stock Chaos

Recently I was looking for an application to keep track of stocks, prices and more using my Android phone. However, nothing really caught my eye until I ran across Chimpler’s Stock Chaos.

Stock Chaos offers lots of big features found on applications such as E*E*Trade Mobile*Pro. But Stock Chaos is not dependent on having an account with an online broker.

One of my favorite features is the ability to bring in my Google Finance portfolios. It’s definitely nice to not have to re-enter stock tickers again into yet another application.

Aside from Google Finance, you can also add other popular social networking sites such as Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIN.Stock Chaos Accounts

Stock Chaos offers a full range of features, including stock charts, news updates (including from blogs, Twitter, StockTwits, and other social networking sites), charting, spreadsheets, transaction tracking etc.

Stock Chaos also includes the ability to screen stocks and set price alerts. I have been especially impressed with the price alert capability. It is as good or better than what is available in the E-Trade application.

Overall, I have been pleased with the performance of Stock Chaos. It isn’t perfect. It has crashed on occasion, but it has incredible functionality, especially considering it is a free application that does not tie you to any particular stock broker in order to continues using it at no cost. Overall, a highly useful and recommended application if you want to keep track of stocks, do research, and share with your social network while on the go.
