If you have been rocking the official Mailbox app for Android, and also use a Mac computer, then you will be happy to learn that a public beta is now available for you to use on your desktop or laptop.
While it is your basic email client, just as you would see on iOS and Android, a couple new features are included which work not only on the desktop, but on your smartphone as well. (more…)
Over in Europe, a handful of companies got a slap on the wrist for not securing their app stores properly from children. The European Commission (EU) is forcing Google and others in the selling business to better label applications that are free to download, but feature hefty amounts of in-app purchases. (more…)
LG is usually pretty quiet when it comes to standing up to the competition. While HTC is constantly head butting with Samsung, and Samsung is relentless towards Apple on the playground of social media, LG is busy in the school’s gym doing deadlifts and pushups.
Now with the G3 hitting US carriers, LG looks to be ready to flex those new-found muscles on Twitter, proving that they too are capable of providing a good laugh at Samsung’s expense. (more…)
Beats may now be under Apple’s management, but that doesn’t mean the dev team is ceasing support for the Android app anytime soon. CEO Tim Cook said as much, and it seems he’s a man of his word – Beats Music received a substantial update yesterday. (more…)
The 13MP camera featured on the LG G3 is certainly one of its main highlights. Much like last year’s G2, the camera features optical image stabilization (OIS+), as well as a fancy new laser built right into the backside of the device to create super-fast auto focus times.
Over the weekend, we put the LG G3 through the camera paces, coming away extremely impressed. For comparison purposes, we took out five top devices, just to see if we could try to come away with something useful.
Down below in the gallery, we have shots from the LG G3, Samsung Galaxy S5, HTC One (M8), Google Nexus 5, and Apple iPhone 5s. (more…)
Apple is done with its WWDC keynote, where they introduced a bunch of new features for iOS 8, plus a new version of OS X called Yosemite. We poked fun at a handful of them already, but believe it or not, we are also capable of giving props when we see something cool or that we would like to see on Android at some point. I know, I know, you are probably wondering what I have been drinking over the last couple of hours, but hang with me for a second. You have to admit that Apple is really doing a great job at making all of the experiences seamless from iPhone to iPad to computer. They are also doing a pretty impressive job when it comes to making it easy to get in touch with or share things with the people you chat with the most.
So here we go – these are the iOS 8 features that were introduced today that we actually found to be pretty cool. Feel free to agree or disagree, of course. (more…)
After reinventing the keyboard with predictive text in iOS 8, and trying its hand at Google Now-like integration and Google Voice, Apple moved on to a new SDK feature that they are calling “Extensions,” today at WWDC. What are extensions? Well, they do a number of things, like enable 3rd party widgets, sharing, and keyboards. Impressive, right?
So those keyboards, like Swype, Swiftkey, or any of the other four-dozen keyboards on Android that you all have had available for years, could potentially make their way to Apple, so that you could avoid using that impossible-to-type-on Apple ‘board. Apple enthusiasts should be throwing the biggest party in history, just for that announcement alone. (more…)
Hey, WWDC is happening (our live blog is here) and we are beginning our list of things that Apple has invented in the new version of their mobile operating system, iOS 8. If you didn’t catch the sarcasm in that line, what I really mean is, a list of features that have been on Android for years that Apple is just now getting to.
First up, QuickType, a feature added to Apple’s keyboard. What does QuickType do? It predicts what you want to type by showing you suggestions. Think Swiftkey, Google Keyboard, Swype, and every other keyboard introduced on Android since, I don’t know, 2011?
More reinventions on the way. (more…)
