Easy market access

If like me you find searching the Android market from the handset a chore, help is at hand in the form of http://www.cyrket.com/ yes search from the luxury of your PC, but can I suggest before going you take one last venture into the market from the handset to download Barcode Scanner by ZXin Team as this will make using Cyrket even easier as you can just scan the QR barcode from your monitor and get the app that way.


Pro Tip :- Gmail failing to sync

Ok I recently had an issue with gmail not syncing, I was getting notified of new emails but the app was refusing to load any new email, tho it showed that there was new messages for me.

I resolved the problem by going to Settings / Applications / Manage Applications / Gmail and clicked ‘clear data’

Open Gmail, pres Menu, then refresh Gmail starts to resync and all was good in the world. 😀

Hope this helps some ppl
