Big Red customers who just can't enough of the ol' pigskin, listen up: from now until October 1st, you can catch all the NFL action for free on your mobile with Verizon's NFL Mobile app. The service, which normally costs around $5 a month, allows you to stream live NFL content directly to your phone so you never miss a beat.
Just yesterday, ASUS promised both TF201 and TF700 owners their Jelly Bean updates on September 28th and 29th, respectively. While they owned up to that for the Prime, the Infinity isn't so lucky: they just had to push the update back.
According to ASUS rep Gary Key, "a couple of applications that were recently updated (Facebook 1.9.10 on 9/20 as one example) required a last minute firmware update for the keyboard to operate correctly in the "Comment" area with Android 4.1."
It's not all bad, though - the update should still begin rolling out early next week.
I find that I'm far more inclined to use an app if it's pretty. I can't stand blatant iOS ports for one, but I've also started to basically ignore apps that are stuck in the Gingerbread (and earlier) way of theming. Holo is where it's at, so that's what I want to see.
While the previous New York Times app wasn't exactly stuck in the "old Android" theme, it certainly wasn't ICS-ified, either.
For everyone who was a deeply saddened, disappointed, or otherwise frustrated at the delayed launch of Ubisoft's Rayman Jungle Run, time to perk up. Wipe away those tears, oh dearest Rayman fan - the title is now official in the Play Store.
This side-scrolling platformer should be a nice throwback to old-school Rayman lovers, as it offers the same colorful scenery and gameplay style, along with new worlds and powers, supposedly-intuitive touch controls, and of course, everyone's favorite limbless little man.
My Tracks is one of my favorite apps. I use it took keep track of distance traveled while cycling, and then upload my route to Maps and the data to Google Drive. This way, I can reference back and check my progress whenever I want.
Today, Google updated My Tracks to include one function that I've longed for since I starting using the app: the ability to pause and resume recording.
I love how fast ASUS moves. When they say an update is coming, you can rest assured that it's coming soon. Just this morning they teased us a bit on Facebook, and ASUS rep Gary Key took to XDA to let users know that the Jelly Bean updates for the Prime and Infinity would be rolling out "within 72 hours."
Now, this evening, they've published a rollout schedule and full changelog for both devices:
- Upgrade OS from Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) to Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean)
- Default enable System Bar Lock
- Add Multiple Photo Selection feature
- Support Connect Dock (Accessory)
- Remove Adobe Flash support
- Remove Wi-Fi Direct function support
- Remove Press Reader
It's also noted that Press Reader, should you actually use it, will still be available in the Play Store.
If you plan on jumping aboard the Medfield bandwagon and scooping up the new Intel-powered Motorola RAZR i when it hits the streets next month, then the newest update to Chrome for Android is just for you. This small bump adds support for Intel x86 chips - like the ones found in the RAZR i, ZTE Orange San Diego, and ZTE Grand X IN.
This is definitely good news, as lack of Chrome support was one of the last hurdles to jump for x86 phones.
So, you like to play golf. Ever wish there were a way to see how you can improve your swing? Thanks to a new Bluetooth accessory called SwingTip, now you can.
It's pretty simple: install the companion app, put SwingTip on your club, pair it with your phone, and swing away. The unit automatically detects your swing and and sends the info back to your phone or tablet. From there, it can give you all the info you've ever wanted to know about your game, including a full animation, club head speed, swing path, club face angle, impact zone, and tempo.
