Notifidgets Brings Widgets Back To The Lollipop Lockscreen By Hiding Them In The Notification Bar

Most of the user interface additions to Android 5.0 and higher are welcome, but one of the more notable losses is the ability to embed widgets on the lockscreen. The new placement of notifications in that space has left no room for widgets. That's not a huge problem, but it does require some adjustment if you're used to getting at that information in a very specific way. Developer Udell Enterprises hopes to fix that with an app called, appropriately, Notifidgets.

Popular Xposed Framework Module GravityBox Updated To Work With Android 5.1

Xposed is a fantastic tool for modders whose phones aren't as popular as mainstream models and don't get as much ROM support, or if they simply want a few Android tweaks without flashing completely custom firmware. Unfortunately, both the Xposed Framework and the module you're using need to be updated with each major release of Android for the functionality to reliably work. That's now true for GravityBox, a popular collection of tweaks and mods bundled into a single module, and Lollipop 5.1.

Adidas Releases An Android Companion App For Its $200 'Smart' Soccer Ball

Remember those baseballs that measured pitch speed with a little LCD screen right on the ball, the ones that only the rich kids on your little league team had? This is the modern, logical extension. For the last year, Adidas has been selling its Smart Ball, a soccer ball (or football, if you insist) with integrated sensors that can detect speed, spin, strike force, and flight time, and a Bluetooth radio to transmit all that data.

Blue Topaz Galaxy S6 And Green Emerald Galaxy S6 Edge Are Now Available In Some Markets

Did you know that your choice of color when buying a cell phone is indicative of your personality and character traits? No, really, it's totally based on real psychology - it's not just made up. Well, let me be more precise: I'm not just making it up.

YouTube 10.19 Adds A Permanent Cast Button, Changes Some Icons, And Might Add An Audio-Only Mode For Offline Storage [APK Download + Teardown]

YouTube updates have been rolling out about every week or two for the last couple of months. Most of the changes haven't been very big, but they're polishing up little aspects of the app in notable ways. The latest version bump doesn't bring significant modifications, either, but it's continuing the trend of small but visible changes. A permanent Cast button has been placed in the action bar and there are updated icons in the privacy selector for uploads.

Remember that 500GB version of the Shield Android TV that leaked on NVIDIA's website last month? Remember how they said it wasn't a "consumer" device, but a development partner system? Well, I'm going to go ahead and call NVIDIA a bunch of lying liars who lie, because a 500GB "Shield Pro" console listing just popped up on Amazon.

[Weekend Discussion] What Was Your First Android Phone? Why Did You Buy It?

This weekend's discussion should be one near and dear to all of hearts: our first Android phone. When did you buy it? What phone was it? Why did you pick it? Was it terrible? Great? Liberating? Life-changing? (Hey, you never know!)

Android is obviously a common thread for all of us, and our first Android phone was what strung us along to this point, reading (and in my case, later writing for) Android Police and talking about obscure phones and Lollipop and Google Play Services and tons of other things that many people have no freaking clue even really exist.

Amazon Disables The Instant Video APK For Non-Sony Android TV Devices, Because They Hate You And Your Money

Amazon, cut this crap out. Seriously, I'm getting really sick of it. As someone who pays you for media on a regular basis, to say nothing of my recurring Amazon Prime payments, I feel like I'm more than justified in telling you to stop sabotaging your own damn products.

Ahem. A little backstory, before we get to the central point here.

QardioArm Review: Blood Pressure Monitoring Never Looked This Sexy

It takes a special skill set to make something as repetitive, boring, stressful, and annoying as blood pressure (BP) monitoring look and feel good. While I'm lucky enough to still be too young and healthy to worry about my own BP, I do manage a small town pharmacy in Lebanon, which requires me to perform routine measurements on many patients.
