Born and raised in the rural South, Bertel knows what it's like to live without 4G LTE - or 3G, for that matter. The only things he likes sweeter than his tea are his gadgets, and while few objects burn more than a metal phone on a summer day, he prefers them that way anyway.

Motorola has been making a name for itself by uploading many of its pre-installed apps (both the exciting and the utterly mundane) into the Play Store where it can serve out updates more quickly, but the Google-owned company isn't the only one to make use of this approach. Today Sony has uploaded the Xperia ZI's Timeshift Burst functionality into the Play Store.

Update: According to comments, the app is also compatible with a handful of other Sony devices, including the Xperia Z, ZL, ZQ, and the Tablet Z.

LGGFlex-Thumb

Last week Sprint was proud to announce that it was the first carrier in the US that would let consumers pre-order the LG G Flex. All the company wanted was a $299.99 down payment and a two-year contract. Now AT&T is jumping in by delivering the same handset at the same price, though its customers also have the option to pay $26.74 for eighteen months or $34.75 for twelve with an AT&T Next plan.

Much of Android's development is done out in the open, which is how several Android developers noticed that a recent commit to the Android Open Source Project master tree would break many of your favorite root apps. This is the result of a newly implemented security feature, rather than an active effort to lock things down on Google's part. Nevertheless, it could result in some inconvenience, so developer Chainfire has taken to his Google+ page to detail what will happen if the change is not reverted before the release of a future version of Android.

The LG G Flex isn't the kind of phone you recommend to everyone. Sure, it has a curved screen, but what is that actually good for? Yet if you've been craving this phone since watching it heal itself (which is admittedly pretty cool), Sprint's gearing up to put one in your hands pretty soon. The handset is now available for pre-order at a price point of $299.99 with a two-year contract.

GMD-Thumb

The title says it all here. GMD Air Command installs a shortcut on your Galaxy Note 3, 10.1 2014, or other compatible devices that can open Samsung's Air Command menu without you having to pull out the S pen. This is especially useful considering that some functionality, such as opening up a floating window, really doesn't need a stylus.

To sweeten things further, GMD Air Command doesn't require root to use.

RoboCop-Thumb

We are the Android Police, so it should come as no surprise that we have a soft spot for RoboCop. We understand what it's like to do the cop thing all while people fail to see you as anything other than a robot. We also get that times are tough right now, and with shrinking pensions and rising healthcare costs, this formerly dead guy crammed full of electronics has to try to make a living any way he can, even if it's by starring in another movie and getting in bed with Glu in order to market it.

Sprint-Thumb

Let's all pause for a moment to recall fond memories of Sprint ID. Done? Yeah, that didn't take long. If you're reading this, then there's a solid chance you have little interest in a carrier-installed app that screws with your homescreen by providing an obnoxious wallpaper with a preselected assortment of apps and widgets. Thankfully, Sprint is ready to take a new approach. The carrier will start to push Sprint Live on some of the phones it sells later this year, a new experience from Chinese company NQ Mobile that strives to be an always-on replacement for your wallpaper keeping you up to the date with various content tailored to the brands and news stories you're interested in.

Pandora-Thumb

An update has rolled out to the Pandora Android app that builds upon what made the Internet radio service popular to begin with - making it easier to discover new music. To this day, Pandora still has an uncanny way of serving out songs that fit a listener's tastes precisely, especially for those who have been tweaking their stations for years. But we are all creatures of habit, and it can be easy to still fall into a rut even with Pandora's helping hand.

RedSleeve-Thumb

There are undoubtedly many people out there who received a new Nexus 7 for Christmas last month, and now they need a means of keeping it safe. There have already been three sleeves to choose from on the Play Store, but today that option jumps to four. Now owners can get the sleeve in bright "Ketchup" red. This unofficial name nicely complements the equally unofficially named Mustard Yellow, Pepper Black, and Salt Gray pre-existing options.

Sochi-Thumb

The 2014 Winter Olympics will take place next month in Sochi, Russia, and Samsung has just released an app into the Play Store for keeping up with all the hoopla. With bright colors and a clean interface, the Sochi 2014 WOW (Wireless Olympics Works) app might just be your best means of avoiding the excessive banter and lengthy commercials that come with trying to navigate the Olympics on television without a guide.
