You were really missing Flappy Bird, weren’t you? Well don’t worry, because it is now available to anyone who owns a Fire TV through the Amazon Appstore, titled Flappy Birds Family.

Google Now Launcher Now Available to All Android 4.1+ Devices

A new update is rolling out to the Google Now Launcher, making it available to just about all devices running Android 4.1+. That’s right, if you have been frustrated at the lack of compatibility for Google’s own launcher with top devices, you can finally relax.

For those new to the Google Now Launcher, think of it as the name suggests, a simple launcher that allows you to easily access Google Now. With the GNL as your launcher, Google Now can be accessed with a swipe from left-to-right. It’s also buttery smooth, gives that stock Android look, and has extra large icons for those needing a pixel explosion. To see it in action, check out Google’s new promo video for the launcher below.

The update just went live for all today, so go grab it.  (more…)

Qi Wireless Charging Version 1.2 Will Leave Space Between Your Phone and Charging Pad

While wireless charging is somewhat useful, it doesn’t actually make charging a device any easier, considering you can’t remove the device from the charging pad without ending the charge. At least when your phone is hooked up to the wall charger you can use it like a normal phone still. Hopefully, with the newest version of the Qi Wireless Charging standard, this pain point of wireless charging will be kind of addressed. (more…)

Deal: 128GB SanDisk Class 10 Micro SD Card Down to $99 at Amazon

Amazon currently has SanDisk’s 128GB Class 10 micro SD card available for $99, which is one of the lowest price points we have seen this much storage hit to date. If you look around the web, you will see it as low as $120 at Best Buy and NewEgg, but $99 with free Prime shipping almost makes this a no-brainer. Now that most of you own devices with micro SD slots, since manufacturers are fully buying back into removable storage this year, it may be time to upgrade.

Phones like the Galaxy S5, LG G3, and HTC One (M8) all support 128GB cards.

We ran a poll earlier in the week, asking if a micro SD slot is a deciding factor when buying a phone – 62% of you said yes, that you wouldn’t buy a phone if it didn’t have one.
