When it comes time to pull the trigger on a new app, the reviews are typically what make or break the decision. If the app's instable, laden with malware, full of bugs, or is generally all-around janky, the reviews give us a heads up. The only problem is that it's difficult to sift through all the reviews to find the ones most relevant to our needs. This used to not be a problem, but the ability to filter reviews went the way of the dodo following the Play Store's relatively recent redesign. Read More
It's almost the weekend, and what does that mean? Friends? Outdoor activities? Goodness, no. It means you've got time to sit in a dark room – alone – and enjoy some new apps and games. Well, you can probably do a mix of things, but it's none of our business. However you want to roll. Either way, here are some sales.
If you've already made the decision to give someone your money for the Galaxy Note 3, Verizon is more than happy to take it. You can now put down $299.99 to pre-order the Note 3 on a two-year contract, a whopping $699.99 for an unsubsidized phone, or reserve a no-money-down phone on Verizon's Edge upgrade plan.
Verizon will also be selling the Galaxy Gear smartwatch directly. You can reserve one along with your Galaxy Note 3 for $599.98 (the same price as a $300 Gear and an on-contract Note 3). Read More
As Android users, we've all grown accustomed to getting apps ported to our devices that originated on iOS. It's for this reason that Music Maker Jam by MAGIX's Android debut comes as a bit of a surprise. This app comes to us not from the Apple App Store, but from the Windows Store instead. Music Maker Jam makes mixing your own songs an easy experience and offers a large selection of professionally produced material to work with. Read More
The MyColorScreen team has been hard at work creating a one-click theming app for Android known creatively as "Themer." That brief introduction pretty much sums up everything you need to know about this app. It changes the look and feel of your home screen with just one click. And no, I don't mean it just changes around a few icons. Each theme looks fundamentally different from the one that came before it. Read More
My dad uses a Verizon Galaxy Nexus, the same one he's had for two years. Whenever I call him his first response is invariably, "talk fast, my battery is dying!" It's become his catchphrase. He's counting the days till he's eligible for an upgrade to a DROID MAXX. Until then, he would probably be well-served by the Anker Astro E4, an external battery pack with a massive 13000mAh capacity. It's available on Amazon for a reasonable $44, but apply the coupon code ANKERE4B (black) or ANKERE4W (white) to get it for $38.99 plus free shipping. Read More
Good grief AT&T, there's such a thing as restraint, you know? After launching the Galaxy Tab 3 7-inch and taking online orders for the LG G2 and preorders for the Galaxy Note 3 late last night, Ma Bell has one last device up its metaphorical sleeve: the carrier's first ASUS tablet. The ASUS MeMO Pad FHD LTE 10.0 is now available for order from AT&T's online store and through business channels with free shipping thrown in for good measure. Read More
LG is hoping to step out of Samsung's shadow a bit with the new G2. Having dropped the Optimus naming scheme, the G2 is the company's 2013 flagship, and it has the specs to earn the name. If the raw numbers don't get you, it's always got those back-facing buttons.
AT&T is asking $199 for the G2 on a 2-year contract, or $575 without subsidy. If you want to save a little scratch up front, AT&T Next gets you the phone for $27 per month. Read More
After debuting on AT&T, then making its way to Verizon, the Moto X has reached the Now Network. Sprint's Moto X is on sale, and you can get a solid deal if you're coming over from a rival carrier. After the contract subsidy and a $100 port-in credit, you only have to pay $99 for the device. Not your situation? Sorry, that'll be $199.
The Moto X is the first device from Motorola that is fully backed by Google. Read More
Note: The Gtab 3 was incorrectly listed on AT&T's site at $299 on-contract until midday Friday. It's only $199, and $99 if you buy a Galaxy S4, S4 Active, or Note II at the same time.
AT&T is making the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 available on its LTE network. This is the almost same tablet you can get online without the LTE, but it costs a bit more here. Read More
