An update hit the Hangouts Dialer app this morning, bringing a much-needed and highly requested feature for the application – the ability to recognize itself as a standalone dialer app.
Previously, when you would hit a phone number link on your phone with the Hangouts Dialer app installed, you would be directed to your stock dialer application. Now, with the update, you are given a choice to use either the Hangouts Dialer or stock dialer. (more…)
As it stands, Yahoo Weather is a gorgeous app. We have last year’s complete overhaul to thank for that. However, Yahoo thinks it can do better. Starting today, high-quality animations introduced on iOS in September are making their way to all Android users with the app installed. (more…)

This morning, BLU, the US-based smartphone manufacturer, announced its newest creation, the Studio 7.0. At first, I thought this device was a decent looking tablet, but then, I found out it is the world’s largest phone, featuring a 7″ display. That’s right, 7 inches. (more…)
To celebrate its sixth anniversary of publishing games, BulkyPix, the makers of many hit titles, are giving away seven games on the Android platform. As a note, the company is giving away 16 titles on iOS, so if you have an iPhone or iPad, you are in for even more of a treat.
As for us on Android, we have been gifted the games Hyper Trip, 4444, Nimble Squiggle, I Am a Brave Knight, Pigs Can’t Fly, Luminux, and Fallin Love. Most of these titles are puzzle titles, but having played 4444 and Nimble Squiggle myself, I can vouch for their entertaining qualities. Especially when they are free.

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…)
It has been a little over a year since the original Dumb Ways to Die landed on Google Play, but we are very happy to see that Dumb Ways to Die 2: The Games, has reached our platform. The original, albeit a bit repetitive, was an amazing game. Inside that title, there are many mini puzzles which tested your quickness, in a mission to save little creatures from killing themselves.
The sequel, Dumb Ways to Die 2, is a toast to classic, but with a new twist. In the game, you are shown a larger world, each with its own set of challenges. While you are still trying to save little dudes from committing suicide, the puzzles seem more thought out, while still being very difficult at times. (more…)
