A new game has hit Google Play this week, that being another breakout iOS success, titled Unmechanical. In this game, you play as a little helicopter who looks to solve puzzles throughout a living and breathing platform world. (more…)
A new Humble Bundle is available for mobile gamers, packed with great titles for low prices. Not only do you get great games, but when purchasing a bundle, you can select how much of your purchase price goes to the game’s developers, select charities, and a tip to the Humble Bundle service.
Included in this bundle are a few awesome titles, such as Thomas Was Alone, Cubemen, Cubemen 2, and Bridge Constructor Playground. While those games are fine and dandy, it is the titles you unlock by paying more than the average of $5.08 that are really awesome, which are Small World 2, Blackwell 1: Legacy, Blackwell 2: Unbound, Blackwell 3:Convergence, and more to follow.
Creation of watch faces for Android Wear is booming right now, even though Google has yet to release an official API for their development. Regardless, much like in Jurassic Park, developers will find a way. And for that, we would like to thank them.
We have compiled a showcase for a few of our favorite watch faces that are currently available for the Moto 360. While this list is somewhat short considering the hundreds of different choices out there, we hope this post can serve as reference for anyone who would like to go beyond the stock faces that Motorola and Google provide out of the box.

Miracast never really caught on; the standard seems to have lost what little ground it had to simpler solutions, like Chromecast mirroring, but it has its niche in environments with flaky Wi-Fi connections and programs which require low latency. The only problem? Finding an inexpensive, reliable receiver. Luckily for those in the market, Microsoft unveiled an option today. (more…)
For OEMs like HTC, chief among the benefits of hosting apps on Google Play are faster updates. Traversing the lengthy and unpredictable path toward OTA approval is obviously undesirable if the enhancements are minor, which is probably why HTC continues to decouple applications from its firmware. The latest to receive the treatment is HTC Scribble, a digital scrapbook app. (more…)
Plex announced this week that an increased price for a subscription to their Plex Pass service would be implemented, but if you are already signed up, don’t worry about your current price changing. However, if you sign up on or after September 29, be prepared for a slight increase in monthly and annual fees, plus an insanely large jump in price for a lifetime membership fee. (more…)
Even though it has been available for months, longer than most 2014 flagship phones, the Samsung Galaxy S5 is still a force to be reckoned with. With its industry-leading Super AMOLED display, Snapdragon 801 processor, and great camera, the Galaxy S5 still stands up nicely to other top-tier devices introduced over the last couple of months. If you haven’t been moved by the new Moto X or LG G3, and the Galaxy S5 has remained on your radar, today may be the day to consider pulling the trigger on one.
A current eBay daily deal has the AT&T version (SM-G900A) in black, white, or gold with 16GB of storage for just $429.99. That’s off-contract of course. The device’s description says that it is unlocked and should work on both AT&T and T-Mobile. It does appear to be missing one of T-Mobile’s GSM bands, though, so your best bet would be to attach it to AT&T to get full LTE and GSM connectivity. (more…)
Battery life is not exactly a strong suit of smartwatches currently on the market. Their limited power capacity can be especially problematic if you find yourself away from a charger for more than a day or longer. While devices with longer-lasting battery tech will take a bit more R&D, Samsung has developed a solution in the interim – the Power Sharing cable. (more…)
