3 Android Apps Worth Owning: AfterShip, Reddit News Pro, theScore

Last week, in our first “3 Android apps worth owning” feature, Tim told you about Fenix, Zooper Widget Pro, and Mailbox, all of which are apps that the DL team can’t live without because of their ties to Twitter, phone customization, and organization. In this week’s version of the same feature, I’m going a little more personal, choosing instead three apps I use on a daily basis and can’t imagine not being included in the first apps I install on every single new device.

Save $48 on the Nexus 6 at T-Mobile With This Coupon Code

T-Mobile is currently hosting a deal on the Nexus 6 that will slash $48 off the price. The deal is good for both 32GB and 64GB models, so at their $649 and $699 prices, you are looking at $601 and $651, respectively, after the discount. That’s not a bad price for a phone that Google and Motorola still can’t seem to keep in stock.

In our Nexus 6 review, we called it the best Nexus ever made. And even though the phone is a whale, consuming media on it is quite enjoyable. In fact, using it in general is a joy, assuming you have two hands free on the regular.  (more…)

Sonos, the Hi-Fi speaker company whose systems turn your house into a multi-room multimedia mecca, and whose products have also led to recent copycat products from most of the biggest electronics manufacturers in the world (that would be Samsung, LG, and a bunch of speaker knock-off companies), released version 5.3 of its Sonos Controller app in public beta today.
