[Deal Alert] All dbrand Skins Are 25% Off For Today Only

One of the lamest things about most modern Android devices is the lack of color options. One person can only choose between "Snow White," "Black Velvet," and "Rose Gold" so many times before wanting to scream, after all.

For situations like that, there's dbrand. They make custom skins for a variety of devices, allowing users to modify their device however they see fit (and change that look on a whim with different skins).

At 6mm thick, this thing is thinner than an iPad. The bezels are small too, except for the chin that juts out at the bottom, not unlike the Sharp Aquos Crystal.

Sony Releases A SmartEyeglass Companion App In The Play Store

Sony is apparently really serious about creating its own Google Glass competitor. You'd think Google's inability to talk everyone into wearing a computer on their faces would give Sony pause, but here we are with the official Sony SmartEyeglass app in the Play Store.

A winter storm is forecast to hit my area later today, precisely the kind of situation where an external battery pack or two could come in handy (though it's too late to order one from Amazon in this case).

Chrono List Is A Simple, Material, And Completely Free Interval Timer

Sometimes developers strike (figurative) gold. They send an app submission just when you're thinking that you need to find an app that does the exact same thing, and it's Presidents Day so your plate is otherwise empty and you can try it out. Such is the case with Chrono List. But let's back up.

For a few days now, I have been thinking how silly it is that I have to keep staring at my treadmill's timer to figure out when to switch speeds during my runs.

LG has just sent out a press release for its latest Android Wear device - the LG Watch Urbane.

  • Operating System: Android Wear™
  • Display: 1.3-inch P-OLED Display (320 x 320, 245ppi)
  • Size: 45.5 x 52.2 x 10.9mm
  • Memory: 4GB eMMC / 512MB LPDDR2
  • Battery: 410mAh
  • Sensors: 9-Axis (Gyro / Accelerometer / Compass) / Barometer / PPG (Heart Rate Sensor)
  • Colors: Gold / Silver
  • Other: Dust and Water Resistant (IP67)

LG hasn't provided any specific availability details (or pricing), but we should be finding out more at Mobile World Congress, which is quickly approaching.

[Weekend Poll] Have You Ever Pledged Money To A Technology Crowdfunding Campaign?

This weekend's question isn't explicitly about Android or even smartphones, but it is something highly relevant to most of us who follow technology: crowdfunding! Now, whatever your feelings on crowdfunding may be (I'm not a fan!), perhaps you've ventured a little cash on one at some point or another. We have covered many, many Kickstarters and Indiegogo projects on Android Police, so it'll be interesting to see just how many of you have actually pledged to a campaign.

Today's poll is just about technology crowdfunding, though, primarily because there's also a huge art funding scene out there on Kickstarter, Indiegogo, and other sites, so I'd prefer to limit our results to people expecting actual tech products or services as opposed to content or other sorts of things that end up on these sites in droves.

Google's Device Art Generator Adds Android Wear To Lineup

Google's official device art generator is a great tool for making screenshots look pretty. For all recent Nexus devices, including Nexus 5, 6, 7, and 9 (plus a few older devices), the generator has high-quality device frames that will perfectly show off properly sized screenshots. Users can simply drag a screenshot in and then drag the framed shot back out, with shadow or glare effects if desired.

Now, it looks like Android Wear has joined the lineup on the device art generator. Rather than opting for specific device art (which in this case would include a watch body and a strap), Google has added very basic frames for "round" or "square" watches (no flat tire shapes allowed).
