TeamViewer QuickSupport Can Now Remote Access HTC, LG, Huawei, Intel, Casio, And i.Onik Devices

TeamViewer is a go-to tool for users who, well, remote access into things enough to have a go-to tool. The software lets someone in location A beam into a smartphone or tablet running the app in location B. It's the kind of thing enterprise support teams can use to keep their coworkers or clients happy. Likewise, it's what that techy person up the street uses to help out all of their confused family members.

Pressy Review: I Had No Clue Something Could Suck This Badly

I'm going to keep this short and sweet: Pressy is the worst product I've ever reviewed. I generally find some redeeming quality about even the worst products, but Pressy doesn't have one. It is, without question, complete garbage and a waste of money.

Four members of the Android Police team, myself included, backed Pressy on Kickstarter. Out of the four of us, roughly zero percent likes or uses it. In fact, in a recent poll conducted in the Android Police team chat, 100% of those who backed this project regret doing so.

Swing Copters Update Makes The Game Easier, Saving Billions In Potential Property Damage

In a game in which getting a single point is a brain-numbing task of Sisyphean repetition, every little bit helps. So it is with Swing Copters, the second game from the infamous developer of Flappy Bird. The version 1.1 update to the Android release includes "tuning gameplay," reportedly making the back-and-forth motion much easier to predict, and thus lowering the challenge. Well, that's what a lot of players are saying, anyway.

Verizon Teases Upcoming VoLTE Service With Video Calling

Even if you don't talk on the phone a lot, VoLTE is going to be a thing that you want. Replacing the old 3G standards for voice will mean one less radio always sucking down power in your device when you're in an LTE area. Verizon (as well as other carriers) is already testing VoLTE on some of its devices, and it apparently also intends to build video calling into VoLTE-capable phones as part of its so-called "Advanced Calling 1.0" initiative in the coming weeks.

Not content to fire back at the competition with just one volley, the company has continued its barrage with two new announcements. For starters, it's opening up family plans from a limit of five to up to ten lines. For most of us, that inherently means we're going to have to look outside of our immediate families to hit the max. It's time to get grandma a smartphone, call up that cheap uncle, and bring in a couple of college-bound cousins.
