Difference between News+ and gReader: http://newsplus.co/difference-between-newsplus-and-greader
*** About News+ (Google News)***
Since Google has decided to shutdown Google Reader, lots of new and innovative RSS services have arose to light. Many of those services appeared as worthy replacements, and even an upgrade. We couldn’t choose just one or two, and we also had to make some decisions about how our work will continue. We decided not to pick! We created a new app that is the successor of gReader, taking it’s features and functionality but supports as many reading services as possible: News+.
*** Simple, fast and intuitive ***
Our goal was to create a news reader with the best possible reading experience. Our users LOVED how customizable gReader is, and it made sense because a lot of the feature ideas came from the community itself. So, on News+ users can also quickly read their feeds in a simple and intuitive user interface. Article pages can be reduced to the minimum of just the main contents, so that a reader could just concentrate on, well… reading! Consuming content at places without an internet connection is also possible using the great offline Reading features. You can also let News+ read your news to you when out laud, leaving your hands free for other tasks. These and many more features could be found on the features page, at http://newsplus.co/features/.
*** Why choose just one service? Supporting extensions in News+ ***
The power of News+ is as an aggregator. We took gReader’s functional features and added the ability to expand News+ with extensions. Not just for RSS services, but Read Later services as well (Pocket, Readability or Instapaper), and news websites could be integrated too. We plan on integrating more and more services to News+, making it a one-stop-shop for all your news and articles needs. In a single, unified user interface, you can now read and consume content from various different services, and the list will just get bigger and bigger.
Extensions are independent app that can be created and published by everyone. News+ recognized the extensions by itself and shows them directly in the app. Here is a list of current services News+ supports:
* Google News
* The Old Reader
* Tiny Tiny Rss
Finally, we encourage the News+ community to create extension, and have them published to everyone!

Better Bored is an app for bored people. If, at the moment, you say "I am bored, so totally bored, that boredom is the core of my being", then this app may change your boredom into happiness. It should brake their boredom and enlighten your live. It consists of funny little mini games which also may be played with more than one player (it is not real multiplayer).
Mainly you have to push buttons. Take the challenge!
Don't be languid, don't be dull, don't be lazy.
But if you are, play this little games and keep easy going and have fun. Be the fastest - or the slowest.
At the moment there is one mode for people who like it fast and often and another mode for people who enjoy it slow and chilling. If enough people are interested, other mini games will be added.
In the hectic mode you have to push the button as often as you can in 3 seconds. Get the highscore!
In the chilling mode you have to push a button for as long as you can. Get the highscore!
On top of the board you push the button. After the mini-game is done, your result with motivating tips is shown. Below this the current leader board is shown (at the moment without names - you never know who's watching!).
-Virtual Air Cooling-
Get a cool feeling!
Enjoy the air blowing from this fan through your head (sort of)!
This fan app offers a simulated, virtual fan with 3-speed fan technology.
It features fan depicturing, fan and air stream sounds, which will calm and open your mind.
You may use the fan for chill-down or just use it for its fan - tastic virtual cooling and chilling on hot summer days with hot weather. This air cooling (aka air conditioning) device may increase your virtual ventilation as the air blower that it is. Cool down the warm temperatures with this Ventilator or Ventilateur - like some europenas call such ventilation devices or electric fans. But don't overact so you don't start to freeze.. ;) Btw. this isn't a ceiling fan :) And it's only virtual - so don't expect physical refreshment :)
I got aware of some repeating noises on a friends phone. Sadly, this is caused due to different producer or android implementations. To solve this or at least to enable some people to hear a nearly gapless white noise sound, I added a button to switch between two playback techniques - either one works on different devices for me. So blow on!
Remark: your mobile won't blow air unless you use it like a frond - this will work even without this app - on your on risk!
Muck Around And Shock Your Pals
Prank your friends with this app as never before.
Recommend this app as install to a pal - and something unexpected may happen!
Great app that delivers a very special prank like no other app. Especially for friends that like to muck around their friends! They need this app!
You can trick them with this hoax app. This awfull app will startle them through its startling, shocking appearance. It's going to be hair-rasing! (Last but least it's only a small joke app you may send to your friends with android phones...)
Remark/Warning: depending on your music volume, this app can get very loud - and shocking!
Simulates a piece of toilet paper (aka bog paper)
Take your phone, drag it from the bottom up - you probably know where you have to do it - and... voila, you wiped and cleaned your ass, your bum, your butt, your rear, your behind, your lower backside, your bum - however you may call it :)
Push NEW PAPER to get a new piece of toilet paper and you may go on 'cleaning'.
Another advise: this virtual toilet paper makes use of acceleration and distance sensors - so maybe it won't work on your phone (only tested devices at the moment are HTC Desire and Samsung Galaxy S3 / SIII)
Remarks: This virtual piece of toilet paper won't actually clean anything in the real world (at last it's virtual). You probably could use your phone but I wouldn't advise you to exhibit your phone to real... erm.... shit or any other kind of crap.
Futhermore: please note, that no real poo got harmed for the production of this epic piece of software. Just a few crumbs of chocolate had to stand in.
Let 'em simply talk to the hand!
The Hand is very empathic and interested and will consent to anything.
You talk to Apple Siri on an iPhone or to Alicoid on an Android, but the never agree to you, but always misunderstand you or even give you answers you don't want to hear ?
Get over that and Talk To The Hand !
Talk To The Hand listens as long as your talking through the microphone and agrees over speaker if you await assention for a few fractions of a second :-)

If you are a fan of cool and coolest internet radio whilst wakeup, you have your clock radio!!!
Optimal to be used with an audio dock like Phillips Fidelio AS111 (that's the one I use on a daily basis for wakeup).
This radio alarm aka radio alarm clock allows you to have a good sleep until you wake up to the sound you like. Choose the radio station you like as your alarm sound and ensure your akeup through another alarm, one with a buzzer, a few minutes later. Tune in again to your radio alarm by snoozing the buzzer alarm.
Choose from 1000s of stations all over the world. If you are a fan of Alternative, Rock, Rock and Roll, Hard Rock, Chillout, Country, Jazz or Charts Radios or if you just love to hear the latest news - you can find a station that fulfills your needs.
You wan't to go premium? Just try to add more then 2 stations or alarms and you get the chance to go premium!
Stacked alarms allows you to enjoy the following:
* set one alarm at 07:00 am with your favorite radio station
* set one alarm at 07:30 am with buzzer
At 7 o'clock your radio will start playing until at 07:30 am the buzzer kicks in. If now you decide to stay in bed a little longer, you just snooze the buzzer, with the effect of the radio restarting to play.
Every alarm that is overlapped by another waits for its successor to stop.
You even can stop all hanging alarms at once or just single ones that are currently snoozed or active.
Tested on Google LG Nexus 4, Google Asus Nexus 7, Samsung Galaxy S3, HTC Desire
Tested with Android 4.3, Android 4.2 und Android 2.2
Simple Internet Radio Alarm Clock
* 100s radio stations with music, informations and more
* 2 wake times (radio, buzzer)
* Internet Radio with Favorites
* adjustable brightness
* adjustable modes for wireless connections on sleep and on wake (Nightmode and Wakemode)
* adjustable volume for alarms (incl. increasing volume)
Hints and Tipps:
* "Wah! BLUETOOTH enables itself" => if you don't want BT to be enabled on wake, you can disable this feature: touch the upper left icon, then touch Settings. There deselect the bluetooth symbol in Wakemode (second row).
* If don't want BT, WLAN or 2g/3g activated on wake, please touch the wireless symbol on the upper left and touch Settings.
There you can uncheck what you don't like activated on wake. (e.g. maybe BT, if you're not using an audio dock)
Draws lots of power and bandwidth while playing internet radio - consider that and consider streaming webradio only on WLAN and POWER SUPPLY! (maybe in a sound dock!)
Use any android phone as an alarm clock e.g. on a Philips Fidelio bluetooth docking speaker aka docking station aka sound dock. It even works without such a dock - you may also use only your phone as a night clock (dimmable).
