One of my biggest complaints about Google Play Music was that the app could only store “pinned” music (music downloaded for offline listening) to a device’s internal storage. Only have 4GB of internal storage but have 32GB of sweet microSD card space to fill? Tough luck. Not any more, though, as the latest Google Play […]
A couple of days ago, we heard murmurings of an “Android 4.4.1″ update. Our own traffic logs showed many instances of hits from such an OS version, but we also saw hits from the likes of Android 9.9.9 — forgive us if we were a bit skeptical. But it looks like 4.4.1 is the real […]
Apple has done it, so you can expect pretty much everyone else to follow sooner or later. The latest report out of Reuters suggests the Korean electronics manufacturer will look to create a smartphone with a fingerprint scanner at some point in 2014. Fingerprint Cards’ CEO Johan Carlstrom let that much slip, noting that his company […]
Nostalgia always gets the best of us, which is why we were excited when we learned the Double Dragon Trilogy would be making its way to Android. Well, it’s here, and we’re glad to say that we haven’t been disappointed one bit.

Up until now, we haven’t gotten a real good look at Google’s plans for prescription eyewearers looking to outfit themselves with Google Glass. Sure there was the scruffy looking fella from months ago, but it was still tough to make out exactly what was going on. Will Glass’s titanium frames be detachable? Will the main […]
After Google promised current Explorers the 1-time opportunity to swap out their first generation Glass for the new v2 model, we were beginning to wonder if we were ever going to get the invite. Today seems to be that special day, with a few Glass Explorers on Phandroid’s team — myself included — now receiving […]
Google Search for Android can now find search results inside (some) apps already installed on your device
Announced earlier today, the Google Search app for Android is about to get a whole lot smarter. No, we’re not talking about the usual Google Now cards that come in every update, search results not pulled, not only from the web, but inside apps as well. This makes it easier than ever to find exactly […]
When the Chromecast first hit the scene back in July, Google’s streaming media dongle garnered a lot of attention from developers looking to develop for the new platform.

With nearly every other version of the Moto X starting to get Android 4.4 KitKat, some US Cellular folks have been wondering when they’d be let in on the fun. Thankfully it won’t take quite as long to get it as some might have thought (due to the carrier being just outside the big four […]
No, you didn’t read that title wrong. Andy Rubin left the Android team to make androids, but it’s not the type of Android we talk about here every day. Instead, the Godfather of Android has taken up a new ambitious project within the Google X labs researching actual robotics. The New York Times has the […]
LG has announced that the LG G Flex is now rolling out on a global scale. The early days won’t see a widespread rollout, with only a few Asian countries getting in on the fun. This includes folks in Singapore on December 8th, and Hong Kong on December 13th. LG didn’t have specific dates for […]
