The Magic Cover for the Nexus 9 is finally in house! I don’t know why, but I have been struggling to remain patient while waiting for this cover to arrive. While not someone who typically buys cases for personal use, the idea behind this one had me hooked the minute I saw it. A single-sheet cover that attaches magnetically, looks beautiful, and can double as a stand? Who wouldn’t get excited about this? (more…)
The new Android Wear “Lollipop” update is slowly (can’t stress “slowly” enough) rolling out to Android Wear users across the world. Thankfully, we already have the update on a Moto 360, so we can show you what to expect when it finally arrives on your device.
If you missed the post on this massive update that we wrote up yesterday, then here is a recap. In Android 5.0.1 for Wear, you are getting official watch face support through the newly released Watch Face API. This makes installing watch faces and switching between them easier than ever, plus we now have a dedicated watch face page on Google Play. Outside of that, the update brought in useful settings if you pull down from the top of your watch (no longer mute only), plus it allows you to undo card dismissals and mute notifications from apps directly from a device. (more…)
Now that Android Wear watch faces are official and ready to be made through the Watch Face API, Google has gone ahead and shared all of the details that developers will need in order to make the next great face. From design and development to when Wear devices will be updated and ready to what will happen to old watch faces that aren’t currently using the new API, Google has laid it all out. (more…)
With the arrival of the Nexus 6, accessory makers like Spigen are doing their best to try and win over your money by offering up whale-sized forms of protection in a variety of shapes. We happen to have all of Spigen’s Nexus 6 case line-up in house, have gone through each behind the scenes, and finally narrowed the lot down to two in particular that we wanted to highlight for you as options that would we potentially consider on our own.

Android 5.0 “Lollipop” is not even two months old, but Google has already released a new version to address some bugs. That new version is Android 5.0.1, a version which few devices are currently running outside of a handful of WiFi Nexus tablets and the HTC One (M8) Google Play Edition. Since the One (M8) GPE is the first phone to run this new build, and at this point we have only shown Motorola devices running Lollipop, we thought we should take it for a tour. (more…)
Meet your next live wallpaper purchase – this is Minima Pro Live Wallpaper, made by the folks at Joko Interactive.
If you were looking for an app that perfectly tackles the current Material Design-style wallpaper trend, but makes it all interactive, alive, and extremely customizable, look no further. From dozens of pre-set themes, to automatic and random setups, to 3D parallax effects, to adjusting things like scale or rotation, this wallpaper could easily gobble up a couple of hours of your life. There is that much it can do. But at the same time, you could have it setup within a minute or two thanks to its randomizer setting.
It can even take a Material-style live wallpaper you have created and quickly turn it into a static wallpaper. Here are a bunch of examples from the app’s creator.
I would try explain the rest of its awesomeness, but the video below does a much better job. This is a visual app that needs to be seen. (more…)
