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.

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 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.
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.
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.
Samsung has been very cautious in rolling out its KitKat update thus far, with even most Galaxy S4 owners still waiting around on Jelly Bean. This doesn't even take into account all the millions of other Galaxy smartphones and tablets that often take a backseat to the company's flagship. Yet Samsung has now provided a list of all the devices it intends to bump up to Android 4.4.2 before it's all said and done.
HTC hasn't built up the best reputation when it comes to supporting its devices, but the company is working to change that. So far it has issued updates to the HTC One relatively quickly, getting KitKat out before Samsung. A few days ago, HTC took to Reddit to announce a new two year commitment to support new North American flagships with Android updates for two years. Now the company has made this promise official, enshrining it as part of its new HTC Advantage.
Late Night with Jimmy Fallon will never be the same. It can't be. Fallon has moved on to replace Jay Leno on the Tonight Show, and tonight's his first day on the job. If the final episode of Late Night wasn't enough to hype you up for the big event, NBC has now released a dedicated app into the Play Store. And with it, you can start to enjoy Fallon in the daytime, too.
Update: @evleaks may not have been the first one to get pictures of the Sony Xperia Tablet Z2 out, but better late than never (if you could even really call this late). Here he is with an image that looks to confirm what @gadgetleaks has shared.

Earlier today @evleaks shared information on Sony's upcoming Xperia Tablet Z2. If his intel is accurate, the sequel to last year's tablet will come with a 10.1" 1920x1200 display, a Snapdragon 800 2.3GHz quad-core processor, 3GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot, a 6000mAh battery, an 8MP rear-facing camera, a 2MP front-facing camera, and KitKat.
The Neo is a more affordable version of the Galaxy Note 3 that comes with a few compromises, most notably regarding its screen and camera. Samsung officially announced the handset at the end of last month and eventually revealed that it would not come to the US or the UK, but it would still be available in many other markets across the globe. The Neo hasn't launched yet, but Samsung has now made the device's kernel source files available to all.
