A deal is currently taking place over on Woot!, one which will have you scoring a Nexus 7 (2013) 16GB WiFi-only tablet for just $129.99. In comparison to the price this device had at first, which was $229, you are saving yourself $100. Not a bad little deal at all. (more…)
Can’t say that I was expecting a highlight on handwriting as a selling point, but hey, you gotta do what you gotta do, eh, Samsung?
Thanks to a parting gift from @evleaks, we may have the cleanest look yet at the new Moto X (aka Moto X+1). The image he shared shows the Moto X on its way to Verizon in both black and white/wood variants, with big camera sensors and a possible button/sensor that also houses a Motorola logo on the back. The images also show a screen that may have even less bezel than last year’s model, at least on the top and bottom of the device, even with dual front-facing speakers.
Since we have such clean images that appear to be official press renders, we decided to match them up next to last year’s Moto X. (more…)
There are plenty of services on the web that allow users to transfer documents online to other users, but not many are as easy and painless as WeTransfer. Today, the service has launched its very own Android application onto Google Play, allowing members to make transferring files even easier while on the go. (more…)
Two variants of the device are shown, one as an all-black base model, the other as a white and wood combo, something that you would see on the original Moto X if it were made through MotoMaker. It looks exactly like the last leak we saw, which showed a device with a wood back, centered Motorola logo/button, big camera housing, and metal trim. (more…)
Anyone here that can speak multiple languages, Google Search has received the perfect update for you. Starting this week, the voice-powered search feature of the Search app can now understand multiple spoken languages, without the need for switching between supported dictionaries in the settings menu.
To give you an idea of how this works, imagine yourself asking Google what the weather is like in San Francisco using English. Google will then relay those results to you. Then, imagine you asked the same question, but this time, in one of 50 supported languages. These languages include Spanish, Italian, German, French, and many more. (more…)
Fragment, a prismatic art wallpaper app that was introduced on iOS some time ago, is now available on Android. To say that this app is “awesome,” is probably not doing it justice. If you like wallpapers, custom ones at that, and prisms, you should probably grab this app.
The app allows you to start with new photos taken from your camera, grab images currently stored on your device, or ask the app for inspiration before creating your own prismatic masterpieces. Once you have an image ready, the app’s all-inclusive set of editing tools are at your fingertips. There are over a dozen frames, shapes, and patterns to get you going, options for rotating/resizing/framing/dragging/zooming/etc., and even sliders that will let you adjust brightness, contrast, saturation and more. The possibilities for creating a new wallpaper are practically endless.
If that all sounds like too much work, there is a shuffle button that will attempt to pair shapes and color adjustments for you on the fly. Tap it as many times as you would like until you find a combination that looks amazing. (more…)
