[Hands-On] Quip Seeks To Change Mobile Word Processing, Now Available For Android As An Early Preview

Word processors were designed for desktop computers. Given that many of us still sit down at laptops or desktops when it's time to type, that isn't too much of issue. We generally consider those to be better devices for typing than tablets or smartphones, but how much of this stems from our reliance on software that isn't designed to truly adapt to mobile screens and interfaces? Quip is a freemium new word processing app designed explicitly for mobile devices, and it's hoping to change word processing to match our new lifestyles.

[New App] Chainfire Releases Alpha Version Of GeoLog, A GPS Logging App That Knows When Not To Log

Chainfire has been a busy, busy developer. Just a few days ago he released the first working root app for Android 4.3, and now he's sharing an early alpha of his new location tracking project, GeoLog. It's similar to other coordinate logging applications, but takes full advantage of Google's new Fused Location Provider and Activity Recognition APIs (check out Google's demonstration at I/O) to determine how precisely it should be tracking your position, and if it should even be actively logging at all.

Google And Netflix Are Aware Of The Device Hanging Issue With Netflix On Android 4.3, Have "Top Men" Working On A Fix

The power button is supposed to wake up your phone, and ideally it should work every single time. On Android 4.3, however, that is not necessarily the case. Running the Netflix app seems to invariably cause the device to freeze the next time it is put to sleep. It's an annoying bug, but Googler Dan Morrill swung by a Reddit thread to confirm Google and Netflix are aware of the issue and have "top men" working on it.

NVIDIA SHIELD Review: A Bright New Future For Android Gaming... We Hope

NVIDIA’s SHIELD is a gaming device that defies classification. The full-sized controls and Android software make it more than a portable gaming device, at least on paper, but it doesn't compete with (or complement) more conventional mobile form factors. SHIELD is something entirely new.
