Already tired of the winter blues? Pull your brain out of its hibernation state and challenge yourself with a freshly squeezed gaming app. Juice Cubes (released in October) is a deliciously addicting game that will whisk you off to tropical islands filled with hours of satisfying fruit puzzles. Test your matching skills by drawing lines vertically, horizontally and diagonally to connect as many colored cubes as possible. Link more than three cubes and you’ll unlock bonuses like exploding fruit that will clear your board and rack up points. But beware – tempting blasting power must be used wisely in order to meet the end goals of the level.
As you slice and dice your way through the island levels, you’ll encounter mermaids, pirates, witches and other crazy tropical inhabitants along the way. Sounds easy, right? With over 215 bright and vibrant levels, Juice Cubes has a simple concept but gets increasingly harder as the levels progress, with specific goals to achieve at each level. The initial 10 levels will fly by with ease – but don’t get too confident – this is just a warm up. Stir things up by connecting your Facebook account and race your friends to the finish. The app is free to play, but you may want to pay a little extra for boosters and charms to move along faster. Overall, Juice Cubes is a satisfying treat for the mind to keep you captivated, at least until spring.

Eating healthy and working out are popular New Year’s resolutions, but what about getting more sleep? Rest and relaxation should be part of our health and fitness routine, but it’s difficult when you find yourself tossing and turning and certain sleep aids you've tried don’t work. This year, stop counting sheep and reach for your phone to turn insomnia into sweet dreams.

Sounds machines are certainly effective in lulling you to sleep, but have a sizable price tag to accommodate. This free version is worth a try and its high ratings prove to be effective.

Sprint’s corporate responsibility program, Sprint Good WorksSM, is guided by the principle that doing the right thing is good business. That’s why we are committed to ensuring that our products and services are used in a responsible manner.
Sprint recognizes the risk our customers and others face when they drive distracted. Since 2005 we’ve taken a proactive position to provide awareness and education about the dangers of distracted driving, as well as technology solutions to promote better driving behaviors. In fact, yesterday was Drive 4 Pledges Day, when Sprint joined with other wireless carriers and the It Can Wait campaign to urge people to share their commitment to never text and drive.
We’re pleased to announce that starting today our Sprint Drive First application is available to our customers for FREE. There was previously a monthly fee.
Available for Sprint Android™-powered smartphones, Sprint Drive First automatically locks the mobile phone when a car is moving more than 10 mph, disabling phone functionality, directing incoming calls to voicemail and silencing distracting alerts for emails and text messages.
If the driver is using the phone when Sprint Drive First engages, the call will end and the phone lock screen will appear. Anyone texting the driver will receive an automated message indicating the person they texted is driving. The message is customizable by the account holder.
A locked device displays a home screen with exit and emergency 911 buttons to override the app. Sprint Drive First can be overridden if the user is a passenger in a car, on a bus or train, but the parent or account holder can choose to receive notifications when the service is overridden.
Users can choose to program up to five phone numbers to ring through when the phone is locked as well as allowing functionality of three apps, such as navigation, music or weather.
When the application no longer detects movement it unlocks and full device functionality resumes. Sprint Drive First takes into account stop-and-go traffic, so the driver needs to be sitting idle for a few minutes before it will unlock.
To download Sprint Drive First for free, visit Google Play.

Worst feeling ever: You’re at the concert event of the summer and capturing every musical moment when suddenly, your phone turns off. Your battery is dead! We've all been there and there’s no bummer like it. If only there was an extra hour of power to save your sanity. When you’re not able to plug-in on-the-go, there’s an app that will help! The Green Power Premium battery saver app will save hours of battery life and reduce your anxiety when there’s no charging station nearby. It’s easy to set up and the app does the power calculations for you. Once configured, it smartly manages your Wi-Fi, data (2G, 3G, 4G), Bluetooth and display settings so you get the most out of your battery juice. For example, when you’re not using Wi-Fi or 4G, it turns them off so you’re not burning power and automatically turns them ON when you need them. It even has a sleep mode so you‘re not losing battery bars while you nap. This app is useful for so many summer activities when you need to keep in touch but won’t have a power outlet, like camping, boating, road trips, pool time and more! Get it before summer (and your battery life) is gone.
