This usually requires you to enter a code sent to you by SMS or generated by an app, and this has long been true of Dropbox's two-factor system.

NEXON's Titanfall: Assault is now officially available on the Play Store. More or less it takes the tried and true gameplay from Clash Royale and adds giant robots. While it is billed as "a mobile RTS with fast-paced action and intense PvP battles," you have to wonder how the $109.99 in-app purchases affect the head-to-head multiplayer gameplay.

Up to now, the most annoying part of using Uber is when a passenger and driver can't find each other and need to get in touch.

But now we are taking a firm step into tablet territory (or "phablet") with this monstrosity: the Xiaomi Mi Max 2.
