The competition for cloud storage customers is getting fierce, and companies like Box need every edge they can get. To that end, the Box Android app is getting a huge overhaul today, focusing on user interface, local file management, and remote syncing and collaboration. Version 2.2 of the app will be live in the Play Store today, and should be rolling out to existing users over the next few hours.

The general interface gets the most attention, starting with a new and oh-so-trendy navigation drawer.

We've been waiting for Leisure Suit Larry: Reloaded, the fancy remastered mobile version of the classic adventure game, for quite a while. And just one day after the game went live in the Play Store last month, it was pulled for technical issues and sent back to the drawing board to iron out some last-minute kinks. But you can't keep a good sleaze down: your favorite lovable letch is back, ready for returning gamers and new players.

Ready for some more Android Open Source Project woes? In addition to the Nexus 7 drama over AOSP builds in the last couple of weeks, it looks like there are some issues with the Nexus 10 as well. Don't worry, the Android 4.3 factory image for the N10 is sitting on the Google Developers page, proud and happy, but the binaries and drivers for some individual components on the tablet seem to be missing, most notably the graphics driver.

T6

Last week we got our first telling glance of a new HTC smartphone hanging out in China: the T6, or as it may come to be known, the HTC One Max. This purported beast of a phone has the styling of the HTC One with a reported 5.9" screen. Today Evleaks, the Deepthroat of the smartphone world, released a press render on his new Google+ account.

The phone still looks like an enormous HTC One.

If you like the idea of being able to upgrade your phone once a year instead of every two, AT&T is more than happy to oblige with its Next plans... for a price. But adoption must have been a bit more tepid than they anticipated, because the monthly payments for phones on the Next plans seem to have been reduced without fanfare. Most phones have had their monthly finance-free charges reduced by a dollar, but some of the flagship phones have $5 reductions, scaling up to $60-100 in savings depending on when you upgrade.

There may be a new Nexus 10 coming, but that doesn't make last year's Samsung tablet any less impressive. If you've had your eye on the 32GB version of Google's biggest, fanciest Nexus, eBay has a deal for you: $130 and just over 25% off the retail price. Yup, the 32GB Nexus 10 is on sale right now for $369.99, which is $30 cheaper than even the 16GB version in the Google Play Store.

One of the biggest complaints about Samsung's latter tablet lines (aside from the plastic builds, outdated specifications, lack of storage, and oh yeah the freakin' smartphone buttons) is that they're too expensive when compared to similar Android tablets. Sammy is hoping to alleviate at least a few of these complaints with some pack-in deals for the Galaxy Note 8.0, Galaxy Tab 3 (all versions), and the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 Student Edition.

The NFL pre-season started this week. That doesn't have anything to do with the PGA, but I thought it might liven up this story about a golf app.

PGA Championship is the official Android app for the eponymous sporting event. It's sponsored by Mercedes-Benz, and by "sponsored," I mean that there appears to be a photo of a car that I can't afford on a lot of the app screens.
