The App other than giving you details of available trains, departure/arrival timings and other information also lets you quickly get the seat availability and your PNR status. Indian Railway is a huge network and it is essential to keep checking your PNR status frequently to know details about your train, seat confirmation and waiting list/RAC status.

Indian Rail Info App

The app is called as Indian Rail Info App and was first launched on the Android Platform few days ago.

Charlie Sheen Releases iPhone App, Puts His Mind In Your Pocket

Charlie Sheen is the well known TV entertainer/actor who got most of his fame from the television show Two and a Half Men. I bet most have you have enjoyed watching the show and laughed your ass off listening to ‘Uncle Charlie’ go on about things that make little sense. Charlie Sheen recently unveiled his very own designed iPhone App whose purpose I clearly don’t seem to understand. He has named it as ‘The MaSheen’ and it will literally put Mr. Charlie Sheen’s mind in your pocket. Isn’t that what a Charlie Sheen fan always wants? To think like him, probably not be like him, but the fans will understand better. I’m a big fan too, so I will play around with this app and try to think like him.

The MaSheen

The MaSheen app doesn’t do much, other than play some of his videos where he talks about various topics. The app also has a fortune teller, wherein you’ll have to ask a question and then shake your iDevice to receive the reply shown on the mouth of the Tiger. Charlie Sheen say’s that he’s got tiger blood, and this app in a way lets you share some of his tiger blood with you. This isn’t a really useful app for non-fans, but for everyone else it will be quite interesting as it has lots to do with his mind. The App also features sections like the Mind Torpedo, The Magik Tiger and  The Fastballs of Truth all of which give you more insights into his brain. The Mind Torpedo actually shows up quotations by Mr. Sheen with the Tiger in the background, such as ‘I have a different constitution, I have a different brain, a different heart. I’ve got Tiger blood man.’

The MaSheen Screenshot

The app isn’t free though, actually it’s quite expensive for such an app. The MaSheen app will cost you $2.99 and already there are complaints flooding that the app is overpriced, however the sales are increasing and Mr. Sheen is making money. Two and a half men went into hiatus after Charlie Sheen went to rehab for drug addiction, he is recovering now and has found selling apps as an alternative to making money.

You can download the MaSheen App from the App Store for $ 2.99 and is currently compatible with iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad running on iOS 4.2 and above. An Android version is also in the making, and Mr. Sheen may keep updating some aspects of this app as time passes by.

Fans will definitely buy this app, but will you?

Google Buckles Down to Remove Malicious Apps from Android Market

Google has finally officially accepted the presence of malware containing apps in Android market and buckled down to sweep them from scenario. Google accepted that 58 apps that contained malicious viruses had made their way to Android Market and till now have affected more than 260000 Android run devices. But this toll is going to be no further increase as Google is leaving no stone unturned in cleaning up.

Android

Google is all set to launch a specifically called remote kill function. By this remote kill function Google while not bothering user (loser ?) will itself wipe out the malicious apps from the affected device.

A wave of fear is being felt in every person using Android run device whereas  Google tries to console them saying that the sole information the attackers have gathered is device’s IMEI number and nothing more. On Google Blog, it  informs about its steps to control the situation:

1.We removed the malicious applications from Android Market, suspended the associated developer accounts, and contacted law enforcement about the attack.

2.We are remotely removing the malicious applications from affected devices. This remote application removal feature is one of many security controls the Android team can use to help protect you from malicious applications.

3.We are pushing an Android Market security update to all affected devices that undoes the exploits to prevent the attacker(s) from accessing any more information from affected devices.

4.We are adding a number of measures to help prevent additional malicious applications using similar exploits from being distributed through Android Market and are working with our partners to provide the fix for the underlying security issues.

Google is also trying its best to be acquitted saying recent versions  (Android versions 2.2.2 or higher)  are already resistant to this attack and the entire problem arose due to using old versions. Further suggestions are being provided to keep the similar problems at bay. An email is being sent to every affected Android user quoting as follows:

We recently discovered applications on Android Market that were designed to harm devices. These malicious applications (“malware”) have been removed from Android Market, and the corresponding developer accounts have been closed.

According to our records, you have downloaded one or more of these applications. This malware was designed to allow an unauthorized third-party to access your device without your knowledge. As far as we can determine, the only information obtained was device-specific (IMEI/IMSI, unique codes which are used to identify mobile devices, and the version of Android running on your device).

However, this malware could leave your device and personal information at risk, so we are pushing an Android Market security update to your device to remove this malware. Over the next few hours, you will receive a notification on your device that says “Android Market Security Tool March 2011” has been installed. You are not required to take any action from there, the update will automatically run. You may also receive notification(s) on your device that an application has been removed. Within 24 hours of receiving the update, you will receive a second email confirming its success.

To ensure this update is run quickly, please make sure that your device is turned on and has a strong network connection.

For more details, please visit the Android Market Help Center.

We hope the situation soon will be under control.
