bring

One of the biggest issues my wife and I have is remembering what to get at the grocery store. We've tried shared spreadsheets, various list applications, and jotting stuff down on paper. Nothing sticks. We either forget to do it or just don't want to deal with hassle (thus is the case with most apps). Bring! may change that. Hopefully, anyway.

Basically, it's a super simple, and seemingly intuitive shopping list app.

Free stuff is good, and if you're an Android developer looking to get into the Intel dev scene, then there's a free book on Amazon that should be just what you need. It's called "Android Application Development for the Intel Platform" (man I really love catchy book titles), and it's normally $40. The paperback version is still going for $35, but if you can handle reading on your device, the Kindle Edition costs approximately zero monies right now.

I can't believe it's already been a year since the last What We Use, but alas, it has. Basically everything has changed in my device collection since last year, so there's a lot to talk about this go around. Before we get into the stuff you're actually here to see, however, l want to point out that we're going to take a slightly different approach to the What We Use series this time.

greenify

I'm at a point in my Android life where I can live without root access if I need to. I don't use very many root applications at all – I generally only use it for a one-touch reboot on phones without a built-in option in the power menu, and Greenify. I love Greenify. I don't use it for every app installed on my phone, but it's a fantastic tool when something just won't quit chomping down on the battery.

The Moto G is easily one of the best choices on the market for a low-cost smartphone. One of the more appealing aspects of the handset is that it's essentially unlocked and free of carrier ties (in most cases, anyway), allowing users to more easily do all the things that carriers attempt to block on their branded handsets.

Among those things is rooting and ROMing, and now CyanogenMod 11 nightlies are rolling out for the Moto G 4G GSM.

Update 8/27/14: The new features are now out of beta and available to everyone, just 5 days after the beta release.

 

Nova users, there's some good stuff happening in the beta channel, so if you're not already aboard that ship, now's a good time to jump on. Today's beta update is a good example of why: it brings some killer new transition animations and app drawer search for those who just have too many pages of apps to swipe through (*cough* Artem *cough*).

pushbullet

Back in June, PushBullet devs added SMS functionality to their already-powerful client. The only catch was that compatibility was limited to EvolveSMS. Now, just a week after the update that brought universal copy and paste, PushBullet is getting another version bump that brings the ability to reply to SMS messages from a PC regardless of which client you're using.

It's super simple, yet incredibly useful: upon receiving an SMS message, PushBullet will send a notification to your PC (you'll need either the Chrome extension or Windows Client installed).

allcast

If there's one thing I've learned from working at Android Police, it's that Artem can be a hound when he wants something done. It looks like Koush Dutta, the developer of AllCast (and much more, as I'm sure you're aware), is starting to get a taste of Artem's dedication to making things perfect, especially after looking at the most recent AllCast update.

First things first (I'm the realest), there's an update to the AllCast Receiver Chrome extension.

squarecash

Mobile technology has done a lot to simplify life in many ways, which includes sending money and paying bills. As much as it sucks to hand over all those moneydollars, Square's Cash app eases the pain a little bit by making it a painless process. Today's update brings the app up to version 2, which adds a handful of new features and improvements.

Everything is better in Cash 2.0!
  • Send cash to any mobile phone number via text message.

I'm going to keep this short and sweet: Pressy is the worst product I've ever reviewed. I generally find some redeeming quality about even the worst products, but Pressy doesn't have one. It is, without question, complete garbage and a waste of money.

Four members of the Android Police team, myself included, backed Pressy on Kickstarter. Out of the four of us, roughly zero percent likes or uses it. In fact, in a recent poll conducted in the Android Police team chat, 100% of those who backed this project regret doing so.
