Born and raised in the rural South, Bertel knows what it's like to live without 4G LTE - or 3G, for that matter. He now lives in the City of Bridges, adjusting to the presence of actual snow. His phone of choice is the HTC One.

Lynda-Thumb

In between those countless hours spent cutting fruit, flinging birds, and laughing at cats, it might be beneficial to put your mind up to something more productive. Lynda.com already provides a way to learn new skills from the comfort of your desk, but its pre-existing Android app could use some tender loving care. Today, it has received it. Lots of it.

The new native app that fits on both phones and tables has more courses, a sidebar for navigating through its content, voice search, and support for playlists.

Pathogen-Thumb

Pathogen is a turn-based strategy game, but it doesn't involve armor-clad warriors waging war against hordes of miscellaneous fiends. Instead, it tasks shapes of one color with overcoming similar shapes of another hue. It's the kind of simplistic, easy-to-grasp, abstract experience that tends to be very successful on mobile platforms. Now, after having made itself cozy in a competing app store a couple months ago, Pathogen has found its way onto Google Play.

G2Mini-Thumb
Last Updated: February 21st, 2014

LG teased the G2 Mini a week ago, announcing that more information would come on February 24th at Mobile World Congress. Well, the company has gotten ahead of itself, pre-announcing the device and confirming a few specs. The "small" version of LG's flagship, unfortunately, won't match its power, screen quality, or camera. The G2 Mini will ship with either a Snapdragon 400 or Nvidia Tegra 4i chip, a 4-7-inch 540x960 display, an 8MP camera, a 2440mAh battery, and just 8GB of internal memory (alleviated somewhat by a microSD card slot).

Kegbot-Thumb

Frat boys who have graduated into post-campus life know that there's nothing worse for someone accustomed to being the life of the party than having a keg run out of beer. It's the kind of social embarrassment that few reputations can bounce back from. That (I imagine) is why nearly 300 people have contributed over $30,000 to the Kegbot Kickstarter project, which promises a tablet-powered beer kegerator. Its $15,000 funding goal stands broken with several days remaining before the campaign ends.

Spotify-Thumb

It turns out Spotify Connect has a very useful feature that the company hasn't done much to make immediately obvious. The service, which lets you stream music to WiFi-connected speakers from your smartphone or tablet, also lets you pump music to other Android devices. The devices don't even have to be on the same network, for that matter. You can connect from an LTE network, as you can see in the screenshots below.

LightFlow-Thumb

Light Flow is the type of app that is distinctively Android. It's both basic and complex at the same time, choosing a single aspect of your phone to mess around with (in this case, its notification LED) and providing a bunch of options for doing so. The latest update brings along a bunch of features, but it's particularly interesting if you own a Sony smartwatch or Xperia phone with an illumination bar.

VH1-Thumb

VH1 watchers, it's time to whip out those Android phones or tablets, type in those TV subscription credentials, and stream full episodes of your favorite (no? second? okay, third favorite) shows until that tiny battery icon starts blinking. Now that an Android app is available in the Play Store, that's all that's standing between you and hours of irresistible, overly dramatic, reality TV.

Leak-Thumb

The leaks of the HTC M8 keep rolling in. The latest one comes to us courtesy of @evleaks, and it shows a possible black version of HTC's upcoming flagship with the new Sense 6. Oh, and it's in a case. Though it looks like there's nothing behind the cutout on the upper right side, so as usual, make of these leaks what you will.

At this point, we've seen enough to expect another unibody phone made of aluminum, only this time the handset's packing not one, but two rear-facing cameras.

Dormi-Thumb

Baby monitors are useful, but they're kind of dumb. Think walkie-talkie dumb. But we live in the world of smartphones now, and these nifty little things are capable of replacing just about anything. With the new Dormi Android app, you can take two Android devices and turn them into a baby monitor that won't weigh you down.
