You probably already realized this, since we wrote up three Google apps with updates before noon, but yes, today is Wednesday and that means Google is unleashing new goodies upon us. Below, we have compiled a list of some of the updates that have already rolled out today (some yesterday too), along with download links and details to their changes (if they have any). A bunch of these updates are minor bug fixes, but a few do have substantial changes.
Should other apps receive updates, we will try our best to update the list.
Go get ‘em! (more…)
Can you believe it? OnePlus actually survived an entire year of existence. I say that because well, they made so many mistakes throughout that pissed so many people off, that it surprises me a little. While the phone they made is still one of our top of 2014 (our review), the road leading up to, during, and after the One’s launch was beyond rocky.
But hey, congrats to a year, OnePlus. Hopefully you learned a lot in 2014. 2015 is going to be a big year, and even though the last year was tough to swallow, we are still interested in what you are up to. (more…)
We currently have a set of three VPN deals for you to consider right now in the DL Deals shop. A couple of them are at least 70% off, all are for multiple years, and of course, they all also include access through Android devices. I can’t necessarily say that buying VPN services has ever topped my X-Mas wishlist, but hey, it’s never too late to start taking internet security seriously.
With a Virtual Private Network (VPN), you get to access the internet with an encrypted, secure connection which means your information is hidden as you browse. VPN’s also let you dance around blocked or restricted content, can protect your WiFi connection when on public networks, and can even bypass some ISP restrictions.
The three deals we have running start at $19 and go all the way up to $110. Below, you will find each along with a list of its top features. (more…)
Now that Motorola’s Cyber Monday discount period is over with, they have moved on to the next solid holiday deal which is $50 off orders of at least $350 or $100 off when you spend $500 or more. If you missed out on Moto X $140 off codes yet still want a new phone, these are still pretty solid discounts. (more…)
As many of you noticed, the Android 5.0.1 “Lollipop” update for the Moto 360 didn’t exactly rollout to all yesterday, even though we were expecting it to. We still aren’t sure why that is, but with an even newer update rolling out to select 360 units today, the delay could be due to a last minute bug squashing. (more…)
Thanks to another great update to Pushbullet, you now have even more power over notifications that arrive from your device to your desktop. The Pushbullet team has added in support for the Quick Actions you see in certain notifications, like an “Archive” or “Delete” button in a notification for an email. Rather than simply dismissing a notification, you can instead take control over them without ever having to pick-up your phone or tablet. (more…)
T-Mobile unwrapped Uncarrier 8.0 this morning with the announcement that they will let customers rollover their high-speed 4G LTE data from one month to the next. They are calling it Data Stash, but it’s really just rollover for data. The idea is that you might only use 2GB of your 3GB plan this month, so you should get to keep that extra unused 1GB and use it in the next month. Get it? It’s rolling over to the next month. Well, in T-Mobile’s case, they are allowing you to “stash” it and then use it next month. (more…)
Tomorrow, at 7:30AM Pacific (10:30AM Eastern), T-Mobile and its CEO will sit down for a live webcast with Yahoo News to talk through their latest Uncarrier announcements, officially known as Uncarrier 8.0. As of right now, we don’t even have guesses as to what will be announced, but there will certainly be expletives, trash talking of other carriers, and plenty of magenta. Wait, isn’t that a bit early for Legere to be calling other CEOs fat? Maybe not. (more…)
