Bertel King, Jr.
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.

PlayStore-Thumb

There are a ton of apps available in the Play Store, and while a large number of them are free, some require forking over some cash. This generally means each user has to decide for themselves whether or not a piece of software is worth the money. But for people in Serbia, there's been no such option. At least, until now.

For years, potential shoppers have waited for Google to bring the option to pay for apps to Serbia.

Up3-Thumb

If you want to wear something that can provide a rough estimate of how active you are each day, there are no shortage of options. Now Jawbone is giving consumers two more. The company has announced a couple of activity trackers that it hopes will appeal to different types of people, with one of them showing off some rather advanced tech.

For starters, we have the $49.99 UP MOVE, an entry-level alternative to Jawbone's fitness bands.

Pushbullet-Thumb

They grow up so quickly. Just this summer, Pushbullet learned how to let its users respond to SMS messages via EvolveSMS. Then a few months later, it extended this functionality to all texting apps. Now the service is ready to give its users more than the ability to reply to text messages, but the power to start conversations from their computers as well.

As long as you have the Pushbullet Android app and browser extension installed, you just need to click on the SMS tab to get started.

TeamViewer-Thumb

When the time comes to take control over someone's machine (with their consent, of course) you're going to want an app that can get the job done reliably. TeamViewer is one such option. With it, you can control a massive Windows, Mac, or Linux machine from an itty-bitty Android device.

Today TeamViewer has announced that version 10 is available as a public beta, and the team has updated its Android app to play along nicely with the new features.

PlayMovies-Thumb

Play Movies is hardly a one-stop-shop for all of your video consuming needs on a mobile device, but that doesn't mean it's not a convenient option to have around. People throughout nine countries predominantly concentrated in Europe can now choose to turn to Google to rent or purchase certain films. The service has expanded to new countries, many of which also recently received Play Music.

If you click on the red Play Movies icon on an Android device in Macedonia, what you will see should look something like this.

Samsung-Thumb

We all know that Samsung is working on what will eventually be known as the Galaxy S6. This isn't news. If anything, it ranks right under a new iPhone coming out as something your average passerby expects to happen in 2015.

What's interesting is figuring out what that new device is going to look like. SamMobile has provided a set of expected specs that, while we can't verify them ourselves, we're inclined to trust.

Sonos has introduced the ability to manage multiple accounts, so people with music streaming to the sound system throughout their house no longer have to share a single login. This lets everyone in the family or a full set of roommates each utilize Sonos in their own way.

This feature isn't rolling out as a stable update just yet. To get your hands on multi-account support as soon as possible, you will need to sign up for the beta.

XperiaZ2-Z2Tablet-Thumb

Sony is very serious about giving PlayStation 4 owners the ability to play their console without actually playing with their consoles, so the company is expanding its remote play functionality to more devices. The required app hit the Play Store just last week, but it only worked for the Z3 line of devices. Now that's gradually changing.

Following the latest over-the-air update, the Xperia Z2 and Z2 Tablet will be able to share in the experience.

Gmail-Thumb

The Gmail 5.0 APK was, for many users, the sweetest thing they tasted on Halloween. But that release was just a very thorough preview, a test build that was essentially complete. Now Google is officially rolling the stable version of the app into the Play Store.

What's New

The changes here are predominantly bug fixes, but there is at least one user-facing tweak. Gmail has traditionally displayed an image in the background whenever you load up an empty folder.

PlayMusic-Thumb

You know those orange headphones that come pre-installed on stock Android devices? They pump tracks through a service called Play Music. It's a downright dandy offering, but it's only available in certain countries. As of now, that list has just expanded to include thirteen more.

These new additions are spread predominantly throughout Eastern Europe. Here's what Play Music looks like if you're browsing the web in Bulgaria.
