After nearly a year of free reign on Android devices, Vine is announcing changes to their terms of service that will change the way some use the service forever.
You’ve heard us gush over Mediocre and their casual gaming masterpieces like Granny Smith and Sprinkle. Today, the boys are back in town, this time with an entirely new title on Google Play called Smash Hit.
The Xbox One SmartGlass app has always been pretty good, but there were always a couple of things holding it back in comparison to other versions. Namely, Android users never had the ability to receive a notification for new messages as soon as they come in. That all changes today, though.
We feel like we’ve only begun settling in with our Nexus 5 and here come rumors of its followup already buzzing around the net. We don’t expect to actually learn anything about the “Nexus 6″ for at least another 7 months, but rumors out of Germany are suggesting Google might, once again, contract LG for […]
It may not come as much of a surprise to many of you, but it’s obvious the OUYA hasn’t been performing as well as its initial Kickstarter funding suggested. OUYA was always in a bit of a weird spot, offering games that, yes, were made for Android, but these titles were almost always exclusive to […]
We were blown away by Goophone’s fast turn around of their shameless Samsung Galaxy S5 ripoff following that device’s announcement, but they have beaten their own record — they’re starting to rip devices off weeks before they’re even made official. Enter the Goophone M8, one very underwhelming phone based on the All New HTC One.
A couple of days ago, it was revealed that Google would plan to shower Google Play visitors with gifts in the form of sales to celebrate the digital storefront’s second birthday, though none of the deals were live at them time. We imagined it’d happen today, though, considering Google Play’s birthday is officially recognized as […]
Yesterday, we told you guys about a new upgrade to Motorola’s Touchless Controls app that added an awesome new command. Saying “What’s Up” or “Read Notifications” will have the phone read back a list of your recent notifications. We gave the new feature a spin on video on the Motorola DROID MAXX running Android 4.4 KitKat, and marveled at the fact that it sounds pretty natural and fluid.
Seriously, LG? You’re cool and all, and your latest phones make me feel happy inside, but this LG G Flex ad seriously has me questioning whether the human race has made any significant progress within the past few decades.
Heads up, cool kids: Verizon has a couple of new tablets available for sale if you’ve been looking for a new slate to fill that oversized void in your mobile life. Both the LG G Pad 8.3 and Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 are now available.
A significant upgrade has been madae to Opera for Android today, with the Norwegian company bringing a very nice web video protocol that will enable folks to video chat right in the browser with sites that support it. The standard is WebRTC, of course, the same one that Google Chrome and Firefox have already implemented in their mobile browsers.
It was only a week or so ago that LG revealed new devices in their Series 3 family, including the LG L40, LG L65, LG L80, LG L70, and LG L90, all of which were on display for the world to see at Mobile World Congress. LG felt the need to formally announce the latter-most of those devices with a press release, though.
There were a lot of hints as to what the OnePlus One (aka, the CyanogenMod phone) would be using for an application processor, so we weren’t too surprised when Pete Lau officially announced the silicon inside the device earlier today. They’ve confirmed that the OnePlus One will sport the trusty ol’ quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800.
A new upgrade is headed to the Touchless Controls app on the Moto X and the Verizon DROID Mini, Ultra and MAXX. There weren’t a multitude of new features, though the magnitude of the one new feature certainly does excite us. Motorola has added a new “What’s Up” command, which will recite your notifications back to you in an oddly-digitized voice.
