The Gmail app doesn't provide the option to mark notifications as read, and it drives many users up the wall. MarkAsRead entered the Play Store less than a week ago and, as the name suggests, tackled this issue head on. Now an update is available that adds the ability to mark a message as read and archive it at the same time, just as the developer promised.

The original Galaxy Gear wasn't for everyone (particularly people who don't own a Samsung phone). It also suffered from limited app compatibility and a quirky interface. Its biggest drawback, though, was the price: $299. That's a lot to ask for a smartwatch that only does a handful of things. But what about $99? That's how much Best Buy is currently selling refurbished models of the device for as part of today's deal of the day.
As an English speaker, this functionality is just something I take for granted. But like everything else, it takes time to expand this out to other languages. Now Google's drawn attention to the feature's availability in Spanish.
The Rufus Cuff isn't some dinky little bracelet with a tiny processor and a fuzzy LCD watch face, claiming that it's somehow "smart." This Android-powered accessory has higher ambitions. The mere act of strapping it on will take wearers one step closer to becoming a Power Ranger or the pilot of their own Enterprise class starship. Owning one won't make you cool, it will make you powerful.
This cuff still pairs up with your Android device like those other smartwatches out there, but it comes with an LCD screen large enough to handle plenty of tasks on its own.
The Aviate launcher has been in alpha/beta for so long, it feels like a Google project. After all, the software runs solidly and has garnered millions of installs. Yet as an app in active development, the new features continue to roll in. Today's update adds badge counts for a handful of apps, including missed phone calls, text messages, Gmail messages, and apps that support notification badges in TouchWiz.
Today's the HTC One M8's big day, and new shots and videos of the handset keep pouring in. HTC has now shared three "First Look" clips to its YouTube account that primarily focus on the phone's camera. That so-called "Duo Camera" is the device's most peculiar feature, so it's worth taking a look at just what it does.
This first video is the most general of the bunch. It touches on the M8's metal unibody design, Motion Launch (answer the phone by lifting it to your ear), and a few camera editing features.
Being a student is expensive. Unless Mom and Dad have this one covered, you have to foot the cost of classes, books, and food with just scholarships and loans to help. The positive side? You can now get a Spotify Premium account for 50% off. That's right - all you can eat music for $4.99. It's like a meal plan you can actually afford to have.
Before you rock out, there's small print to consider here.
Consider this new app that item that someone placed on store shelves before it was time to begin selling the product. You can look at it all you want, but until that launch date comes, forget about it. In this case, HTC has released a Zoe app into the Play Store, but it doesn't plan to activate it until this summer.
There isn't much to take away from these screenshots, other than a green battery icon that drills in just why Google required everyone to switch to white notification tray icons for Android 4.4.
Rather impressively, the HTC One M8 is now available online in the US from AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon Wireless. Pricing doesn't deviate too much among them, but there is enough variance to make it worth shopping around for anyone who isn't already tied down.
Verizon is making the best offer here. Price wise, the carrier will let go of the M8 for $199.99 with a two-year agreement, $25.22 a month with Verizon Edge, and $599.99 without a contract (which, by the way, is $100 less than the Google Play Edition and the lowest contract-free price of the three carriers).
Today is HTC's moment in the sun. With the new HTC One M8 officially unveiled (finally), we've been cranking post after post. New things are exciting, after all. But hey, we shouldn't overlook the slightly older HTC One models that haven't even hit their first birthdays. So here's a bit of good news for HTC One Mini owners on AT&T. The company's planning on rolling out your Sense 5.5 and Android 4.4.2 update by the end of this week.
