This provided screenshot comes from an iPhone, but the Android UI shouldn't look too different.

CyanogenMod 11 M6 Bug Caused Devices To Download Stock 4.4.3 Update Repeatedly And Obliterate Data Caps, Fixed In Newly Released M7 Build

When you go around flashing ROMs, you have to expect that things might occasionally go wrong. The previous milestone build of CyanogenMod 11 seemed fine at first, but then Google released the 4.4.3 update. Devices that were eligible (Nexus phones, for example) started producing update notifications, which shouldn't happen on a custom ROM. This was more troublesome than a notification that wouldn't go away, though.

Soccer, Sorry, Football Fans Can Add World Cup 2014 National Teams To Google Now Sports Tracking

Google's really been on a roll lately when it comes to Google Now... or at least our readers have been especially good at spotting features that we hadn't before. As the 2014 World Cup draws ever nearer, Google has added the various competing national soccer (all non-Americans, read: football) teams to the integrated sports updates already seen for most of the major league sports in the US. Now you don't need a separate app for score updates and news, unless you're the picky type who likes things like content or videos.

Chromecast Support Is Coming To VLC For Android, iOS, And Desktop

Aside from Windows Media Player, there is probably no single video player more widely installed on computers than VLC. It may not have the prettiest interface (or icon), but everybody eventually turns to that huge orange traffic cone, especially for file types that simply can't play in anything else. While VLC provides a mostly full compliment of features, there is one request that has gone unanswered for a while: Chromecast support.

Catch The World Cup 2014 Fever With These 20 Great Android Apps

The 2014 FIFA World Cup is almost upon us, and the fever is starting to catch up with every football (or soccer, for y'all Americans) fan. Where I grew up, we take these competitions very seriously and passionately, to a point where it's a normal occurrence to see Italian flags attached to car windows, Brazilian flags draped over buildings, or German flags raised across the street. But we're not alone. For the next month, all around the world, this will be the number one topic in every conversation between adults, children, friends, coworkers, and even strangers.

"OK Google, remind me to call the doctor tomorrow at noon" will let you set that reminder with a single tap.

But did you know that Google Now will parse your queries for known associations with phone numbers and add a Call button automatically?

CyanogenMod And OmniROM Nightly Builds Already Updated To Android 4.4.3, Paranoid Android And AOKP Coming Soon

Android 4.4.3 isn't a huge bump up from the previous incremental release - the biggest change is a new dialer, though there are thousands of adjustments behind the scenes. Even so, the most popular families of custom Android ROMs are quickly adopting the open source code into their bleeding-edge releases. CyanogenMod has already begun the transfer to 4.4.3 with its latest nightly builds.
