Google Keep may not be the best note taking or to-do list app around, but it has Google’s support and therefore makes it impossible not to use at times. I actually find myself using it quite often, just because of its simplicity for when I want to make something as simple as a grocery or shopping list that can be easily shared with my wife. After today’s update, I may find myself using it even more. (more…)
Google’s Project Fi is about all we can think about on an Android front at the moment. Even though it’s invite-only and only works with the Nexus 6, we can’t wait to grab a Project Fi SIM card and take it for a spin. The thought of being a part of a network that is constantly attempting to find you the strongest, fastest connection is a pretty interesting idea. We also like the fact that Google refunds you for unused data and doesn’t appear to be including any carrier-related gimmicks.
But that’s us. We want to know what you think about Project Fi. Assuming you live in an area that can participate and receive an invite, are you thinking about joining? Is Project Fi worth dropping your current carrier for?
If you don’t know and still need to learn more about Project Fi, check out this post of ours.
Facebook just announced a new app that might replace your current dialer, called Hello. At least, that’s what they want you to do with it bv selling you on its features, which include call blocking, people and place searching, and a caller ID-like functionality that shows you who is calling even if you don’t have the number saved to your phone.
With incoming calls, Facebook can show you information that is being shared via profiles on Facebook, at least that’s my understanding. Chances are that people calling will be sharing some form of information, so this could be a pretty solid and free see-who-is-calling option. With people and places searching, the listings show you numbers, if the person/place has free calling through Messenger, and give you quick access to directions. As for call blocking, a simple button press allows you to block unwanted solicitors. (more…)

The update adds a handful of new features, including cloud sync over WiFi that allows you to keep up with notifications and use voice search when you aren’t connected to a phone’s Bluetooth. (more…)
The Android 5.1 update for the Moto X (1st gen) is finally rolling out…in Brazil. I know, not exactly what you wanted to hear, but hey, at least it is rolling out to the 1st gen Xs after what has been months of delays. If the update is headed to devices in Brazil, then Motorola must be getting it ready for US carrier variants too. (more…)
According to a late breaking story out of the Wall Street Journal, Google could debut its wireless service as early as tomorrow. The report states that an unveiling could take place Wednesday, but obviously, nothing is confirmed at this time. (more…)
