At first glance, Boogey Boy seems to be another endless runner, probably overflowing with in-app purchases. While it kind of plays like an endless runner, there are levels, and you won't find a single IAP anywhere. Now if only you could outrun that boogey man chasing you.

Logitech makes some of the finest universal remotes available, with all sorts of buttons and touchscreens. The Harmony remotes might be super-neat, but the Android app has long suffered from a terminal case of ugly. Well, no more with the most recent update. It looks like an app you'd want to use.

Motorola really happened upon a great strategy with the OG Moto X when it added core features to the Play Store. It allows Motorola to update functionality without waiting for a full OTA, and other OEMs have been following suit. It's going to be much the same with the new Moto X—four new listings have appeared in the Play Store for this device.

The Galaxy S5 on Verizon got an update barely one week ago that bumped it up to Android 4.4.4, but another is rolling out today. The new OTA with version number KTU84P.G900VVRU1ANI2 adds a few tweaks to functionality and resolves some bugs. It also gets the GS5 ready for VoLTE calls.

If you're going to start messing around with ROMs and serious modding, you'll need a custom recovery. There are a few popular ones, but TWRP is the go-to for most devices. Getting official support on your device of choice is cause for celebration, and today Note 3 owners on Verizon get to party.

Sometimes you need to be a little sneaky to get around website blocks or regional restrictions. You know what's a sneaky animal? Okay, not a bear, but that's the de facto mascot of TunnelBear VPN anyway. Sure is cute, though. At any rate, the app has been updated with a new UI and features.

Last year's Moto X was a very well-liked phone, but now there's a new version that seeks to turn more of that admiration into sales. The 2014 Moto X has just gone live in the US on Motorola's website, and is also up for preorder on AT&T. Are there customizations? Oh, you better believe there are customizations.

From the very first day Android Wear was in the news, the Moto 360 has been "the one to wait for." Every time we posted a story about the G Watch or the Gear Live, the comments were populated with no fewer than a million people declaring their intention to wait for Motorola's round smartwatch. Well, the wait was a bit longer than expected, but the Moto 360 has finally arrived.

Your Flipboard experience is going to change a little bit today. Users of the social-magazine-thing are going to start seeing full-screen video ads, which Flipboard kindly describes as "a deeper brand moment." It's not as annoying as it seems at first, though.
