Playboard App Guide Is Like Flipboard For Android App Discovery. Remember AppAware, a social network of sorts to discover and share the best Android apps and games? Due to its eye-soothing aesthetics, user-friendliness and a wonderful blend of app discovery with social networking, the app managed to rake praises from a large contingent of Android users. However, with so many features being injected into a single package, you were almost certain of one thing with AppAware: a rather scrambled interface. In fact, I personally felt that the social sharing aspect of the app somewhat overshadowed its app exploration facet, which left many users craving for a better solution.

So I think I can help you... though who knows if we can get it done here. I always help people I meet in places like this for free, though (because I refuse to use such places as hunting grounds for potential clients), and so if we get to the point that you want to take it private by sending me an email (to the email address in my signature, here), that's fine, too; and it'll be free, no matter what.

What’s even better is that users have considerable control over this sync feature. For instance, you may disable syncing a specific account, opt to exclude syncing certain aspects of a selected (mail) account, specify the auto-sync frequency of certain accounts, or disable the entire automatic syncing feature with a mere tap. The catch with keeping the auto sync option enabled for a prolonged time period is that, not only can this hog your device’s battery resources, but also eat up precious data bytes, which is something that limited data plan users can ill-afford. Of course, you can manually control the sync feature as per requirement, but why go through all the hassle when you have AutoSync at your service.
