Plants have needs. While we could argue all day long if talking to your plants yields actual results, there's no controversy surrounding the fact that plants need water. Forget to bathe them for a few days too many and watch how quickly those lively green leaves turn brown with neglect. So if you're prone to ignoring the potted inhabitants of your household, Waterbot is a free app that can help you give them the care and attention they need.

American Airlines App Updated To v3.0 With A Hugely Improved UI

Getting through the airport has become an increasingly annoying ordeal over the last decade, and the last thing you need is an app making it worse. The old American Airlines app had a pretty awful UI and lacking performance. With the update to 3.0, the AA app is instantly not terrible.

HTC Officially Unveils The One Max: 5.9 Inches, MicroSD Expansion, Rear Fingerprint Scanner, Rollout Starting In October

It's been leaked more than a few times, but early this morning HTC finally took the rather large wraps off the One max. The new phone is essentially a supersized version of the HTC One stretched out to a massive 5.9 inches. HTC hasn't been sitting on its hands for the last few months: the One max (little "m") also includes an oh-so-trendy fingerprint scanner beneath the camera.

From a hardware perspective, the One max and the older One have quite a lot in common indeed.

Press Renders Of LG G Flex Leak Showing 6-Inch Curved Display

Samsung made its rumored curved display smartphone official last week – it curves sideways and it's called the Galaxy Round. However, Samsung's South Korean smartphone competitor LG is supposed to be prepping a curved phone as well. Some newly leaked press renders show what is apparently the LG G Flex in all its shapely glory. As expected, it curves the opposite way and curves a lot.

Like Samsung's phone, the G Flex is expected to have a curved AMOLED screen rather than just curved glass like past devices.

Bleeding Edge Facebook App Updates Now Available Through Alpha Testing Program, Not For The Faint Of Heart

For a very long time, the Facebook app on Android was atrocious, and it's still not great. The folks at Facebook are trying, though. After starting a Play Store beta program not long ago, the social network is now setting up an alpha channel to test the newest (and potentially most unstable) features. Want in?

The alpha program will be run in a very similar way to the beta program. You'll have to sign up for the Play Store testing program and the app will update as new builds are released.

Verizon Galaxy Note 3 (SM-N900V) Now Has Root, But The Method Still Requires A Full Wipe

Last week we reported that the AT&T version of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 had a root method from a couple of enterprising gentlemen over at XDA. The same team-up of designgears and Chainfire has now reproduced the Root De La Vega root method for Verizon's Note 3 (model number SM-N900V), which isn't quite as appropriate as far as the name goes, but it's just as awesome.

The same unfortunate conditions apply for the Verizon version of this exploit.

[Weekend Poll] Based On The New Leaks, Is Android 4.4 A Visual Improvement Over 4.3?

If you take a look at the mockup below (featured in this article), created by our very own Liam Spradlin, you'll see what we strongly believe the Android 4.4 homescreen is going to look like. New icons, transparent notification bar and nav buttons, and a stronger emphasis on white. Personally, I'm a big fan - Android 4.4 is cleaning up a lot of the messy, heavy-handed Tron-esque styling that hung on in the transition from Honeycomb to Ice Cream Sandwich.

Breaking: Nexus 5 Prototype Bares All In Leaked Crystal Clear 7-Minute HD Video

A crystal clear 7-minute video of the Nexus 5 (I think we can accept that's going to be the name at this point) was just leaked on the web. It's an older build than the one leaked by TuttoAndroid yesterday, but look - it's the Nexus 5 hardware in the clearest shots we've seen yet! smartphones.sfr.fr appears all over it, so the full credit for this leak goes out to them.
