GVNotifier – Desktop Google Voice Notifier App
12-29-12: Initial release.
Are you a google voice user? I am, and one feature I like about it the most is the free SMS texting. Even though I have google voice on my phone, on my tablet, and looking at sms text messages from the web browser, I wanted to know if there was an easier way on my desktop to access all of my google voice functions.
It turns out that there is!
There is a program called GVNotifier that simply does that: it notifies you of new calls, voicemails, and you can even do SMS texting straight from the desktop! Sweet, time to turn off email SMS text notifications.

Skypad Alpha 2 – How To Install Google Play Store and Other Google Apps

So recently I had upgraded the firmware on my Skytex Skypad Alpha 2, and although it already came rooted from the factory, I noticed I was having issues with two things:
- Google Play store was missing, the stock firmware came with 1Mobile Market
- I installed Google Voice applet, and although it installed, I could not add my Google account to it. I downloaded Google Play Services, and this did not help.
