[New App] Chris Lacy's Link Bubble Makes Browsing The Web On A Mobile Device Suck A Lot Less (Hands-On)

We're lucky to have capable mobile browsers on Android these days, but the experience of poking around on the web is still flawed in a number of ways. You're often stuck bouncing between two or three redirects because of apps, mobile sites, and link shorteners.

The result is lots of wasted seconds waiting for links to actually resolve at the final destination.

Google Play Listings Now Support Distinct "What's New" Text For Alpha, Beta, And Production Channels

Developers have certainly made great use of the Alpha and Beta distribution channels in the Play Store since they became available last summer. There was one glaring oversight: developers could only write a single block of text for the "What's New" section.

The app, which can activate with just a flick of the wrist, encourages users to take pictures by touching anywhere on the screen.

The Netherlands Sets An Example For The World, Becomes First Country To Legalize Carrier-Free SIM Cards [Updated]

In an ideal world, a phone's SIM card would work with whichever carrier you choose. No having to sell a Verizon HTC One to switch to an identical one on Sprint. A device with a carrier-free SIM card could go wherever its owner wanted it to. The only problem is, such a product is currently illegal across most of the planet.
