The guy in GhostBusters had it right – “print is dead”.

Facebook is overloaded with text status and wall posts but sometimes you only want to look at the pictures. Use this app to do just that.

View your friends’ tagged photos in an unending river of pictures. No words, no Likes, no FarmVille, just pix. Tap a photo to dip into that friend’s gallery or download a specific photo as your phone’s wallpaper. Add new friends to the photo stream at any time.

Here’s another mobile sound recorder for Android.

This one offers easy controls for recording, stopping, starting, and pausing and stores the files on your SD card. Adjust the settings for one of the three different audio formats and then let it roll because the app has an unlimited recording time and will go as long is there is room in memory.

There’s also a stealth mode in which you can record while the screen is off and looks like it’s asleep.
