[Deal Alert] LG G Flex Down To $99 On-Contract With A New Line On AT&T Or Sprint At Amazon

[The Rumors Are True] New And Updated Android Devices Now Required To Have "Powered By Android" Bootup Logo To Get GMS Certification

Google wants manufacturers to use Android in their products, and the company has no problem with them theming the software up all they want, as long as they adhere to a few ground rules.

As first reported by Geek.com, Google is enforcing this via the latest Google Mobile Services license that manufacturers must abide by in order to ship devices with access to the Play Store or Google's suite of first-party apps.

EverClip Clipboard Manager From gReader Creater Gets Updated With Text Expansion Capabilities

Text expansion saves time. It's really that simple. Rather than typing out a lengthy word over and over, like a regularly visited URL or an embarrassingly long middle name, save it as a text expansion so that pressing a few pre-determined characters will insert that word instead.
