Crazy Taxi For Android Updated With NVIDIA SHIELD Controller Support

SEGA's Crazy Taxi was a very welcome addition to Android's gaming lineup last month, and no less so for a wide array of controls. The game came with standard on-screen controls, tilt steering, and support for HID and MOGA controllers. It was strange, then, that the game was incompatible with the controls on NVIDIA's SHIELD. Other SEGA games had already been updated for the launch. But today Crazy Taxi was updated to version 1.2, complete with SHIELD-friendly controls.

International HTC One X+ Gets Official CyanogenMod Support, 10.1 Nightly Available Now, 10.2 Coming Soon

The HTC One X+ is the last phone of an era. It was a simpler time, back when new devices got more letters and an extra helping of punctuation rather than a simpler title that makes them harder to Google. Those of you who have a One X+ now have an official CyanogenMod ROM build to call your own, at least if you're using the international version. The first nightly has been posted to Get.CM.

[Poll] The 'Recently Updated' Section Of The New Play Store Currently Set To 7 Days – Is That Too Long?

You may have noticed the new version of the Play Store app (4.3.10) has a little tweak. It now lists apps that you've updated recently near the top of the list (right under pending updates). How recently? We asked a Googler who confirmed it's 7 days. Is that maybe a little long?

The Unofficial CyanogenROM Downloader Adds Scheduled ROM Flashing And Backups - Safely Applying Nightlies Has Never Been Easier

Our readers already know about CyanogenMod, as it's only the most popular Android ROM out there, so I won't waste time with an introduction. Many also already use CyanogenROM Downloader to get their hands on the latest versions, even though it's not an official updater. The app's already awesome, but its author sent out a tease a few days ago implying that it could be even better - that it could automatically update your ROM to the latest version overnight, do a backup beforehand, and install your preferred custom kernel without a single touch.

[Bug Watch] Android 4.3 May Be Having Trouble Automatically Reconnecting To Wi-Fi Networks

If there is one thing we all eventually rely on with mobile devices, it's having a sturdy Wi-Fi connection. Whether it's because of a low data cap, you live or work somewhere with a weak cell signal, or like me, the local cellular technology is stuck in the stone age, you probably have a few wireless networks saved on your phone or tablet. While you probably take it for granted that your devices will automatically connect to these networks when they are in range, some people are finding that feature hasn't been working as expected since upgrading to Android 4.3.

[New App] Geekbench 3 Benchmark Released, Adds Multi-Core Testing (And Not Much Else) For 99¢

The Geekbench benchmarking program is a staple on PCs, thanks to quick and varied tests for multiple hardware systems and an impressive database of results. The Geekbench 2 test has been gaining steam on Android as well - we've used it in a few reviews and comparisons. Version 3 has been released as a stand-alone app, but the small list of improvements hardly seems to justify it. It's a good thing that it only costs a dollar.

[Deal Alert] Wirefly Has The Verizon HTC One Up For Pre-Order: $149.99, New Subscribers And Upgrades

As of this morning, we finally know when the HTC One is launching on America's reddest network: August 22nd. But if you're not the kind of person who pays full price for anything, and obviously not on-contract smartphones, you probably know you're better off waiting for a deal on a new phone from a 3rd-party retailer. Wirefly to the rescue - they're already accepting pre-orders on the VZW HTC One, and they're charging a full 25% less than what Verizon's asking, at $149.99 for both new subscribers and upgrades.
