Rovio Stars' Tiny Thief is the story of an adorable bite-sized Robin Hood. The entire world is corrupt, with palace guards, rogue pirates, and shameless cooks hoarding their wealth to themselves. They even trap innocent little forest creatures for no reason other than to harass them. The only way to stand up for the little guys, gals, and vermin of the kingdom is to steal from the rich what, presumably, isn't theirs. Read More
Always wanted to use Chainfire's DSLR Controller app, but don't have a Wi-Fi enabled Canon EOS camera? Chainfire's got a solution for you called the "Wi-Fi Stick."
Along with a new Wi-Fi Stick centered app, Chainfire today posted a walkthrough on how to craft the device, which will enable your Canon EOS camera to work with your Android phone or tablet, all by yourself.
For those who are wondering what we're talking about, DSLR Controller is an app that debuted in 2011 as the very first of its kind, allowing users to control their EOS cameras remotely from an Android device. Read More
If there is anything missing from your workouts, it's Android. As long as you have $1,700 laying around, that won't be a problem for long. The Peloton exercise bike has been funded on Kickstarter, and that means it's going to be a reality. Well, technically it just means the company is going to try super-hard to make it a reality.
Google's charity-minded One Today app launched three months ago, inviting users to give away a dollar a day to a different deserving cause, sort of like a philanthropic version of Woot.com. The initial rollout was very limited, only opening to U.S. residents who had applied for and received an invitation. Now the invitation is no longer necessary: you can download One Today on just about any Android device, so long as you're in the United States. Read More
Sprinkle attracted quite the following when it debuted in 2011, using its realistic water physics to show people what Tegra 2-equipped tablets were capable of. Players controlled a wooden water cannon mounted on a crane and fought fires across a diverse assortment of stages, with water pushing rocks and giant blocks of ice around in order to save houses in hard to reach places. The fire itself was as pretty to watch as it was a pain in the rear, spreading from house to house as gamers discovered that maybe, just maybe, they weren't cut out to be firemen. Read More
There are a lot of cool things about the new Google Maps update, but a few features from the old app didn't make the jump. Google made a big deal about offline maps when it was added a few years ago. So it's a little surprising to see this feature missing in Maps v7... or is it? Mountain View has included a bit of an Easter Egg here.
If you want to cache an area for offline access, just go to that part in the app, then type "Ok Maps" in the search box. Read More
Phones are always getting thinner. For whatever reason, that's a metric that matters to the general public more than battery life. As the phones slim down, so do the screens. LG is stepping up its display game by producing the thinnest 1080p LCD in the world. This 5.2-inch panel is only 2.2mm thick and has a 2.3mm bezel. This is about as svelte as you can make a bezel without getting into those wacky bending screens that pop up at tradeshows, but never in actual devices. Read More

Sprint announced in a press release this afternoon that SoftBank's acquisition of the Sprint Corporation had officially been completed. The two companies announced a mutual interest back in October of last year. After struggling with competing bids from Dish Network, SoftBank received its final regulatory approval for the merger from the FCC just a week ago.
The merger gives SoftBank CEO Masayoshi Son overarching control of Sprint as chairman of the Sprint board of directors, though Dan Hesse will stay on as the Sprint Corporation's CEO. Read More
