Will AppsGeyser just add to the clutter of useless Android apps?

A new Android application has just come out that should have a huge impact on the Android community. AppsGeyser is an application that can take any web content and turn transform it into new applications. To many Android developers this sounds great.

Personally, I am skeptical of the quality AppsGeyser is going to offer.

Quantity of Android apps is overwhelming

I think that it will be a useless application used to create even more useless Android apps. Many people feel that Android apps can be interesting without actually serving a purpose. Well, after seeing thousands of new flashlight apps delivered to the market, I have begun to think that quantity is beginning to take precedence over quality.
With over 30,000 apps on the market right not, I have to wonder if we really need any more. I am sure every app has at least 5 clones and at this point I doubt we really need any more.

How functional will the apps really be?

Violations of intellectual property rights

I have always stated how much I hate article spinners. They basically give webmasters the opportunity to plagiarize someone else’s work and claim that they created original content. This is a grey area that no one can really address.
I feel that AppsGeyser may create the same problems. Developers are going to start taking other people’s content and infringing on their intellectual property rights. At some point, they may have to discontinue the app to protect the interests of content developers.

AT&T MiFi 2372 review

In the week or so that I have been testing the AT&T MiFi 2372 by Novatel Wireless, it has already saved no less than three lives. First, it saved my cable guy’s life. You see, Time Warner Cable provides the worst home Internet service I have ever experienced. I can’t even think of a close second. If providing terrible home Internet service was a sport, Time Warner Cable would be on its tenth consecutive undefeated season. Forget the fact that my upload speed is capped at 60Kbps and I’m lucky if I can get half that — it has been months since I’ve gone through a full day without at least one service interruption. Months. Unfortunately, Time Warner Cable has an exclusive contract with my building so I have no choice but to endure its abysmal service. Last week, as a Time Warner Cable technician entered my home for the sixth time in two months, I realized that this certainly would have spelled serious trouble had it not been for my trusty new back up device. Before the Mi…
