First off, a little briefing for those who are unfamiliar with Touch of Modern: the site requires an invite to gain access, so if you're not already a member and you're thinking of buying this, or any other deal really, you should sign up for an invite immediately. I got mine in a day or two after requesting, but your mileage may vary.
With that out of the way, the Braven 600, 650, and 625s are all on sale for 20% off right now via the site. Read More
Ever since Samsung released the Note II with awesome new features like Multi-Window and Air View, owners of the original Note have been wondering if they would ever see these enhancements. Considering the Galaxy S III started receiving its Premium Suite update about a week ago, we all assumed that the Note would be next. Samsung has now confirmed that with a new microsite highlighting all of the features of the Jelly Bean Premium Suite for the phablet that started it all. Read More
Android phone management is a bit of a double-edged sword. And by that, I mean that the devices themselves are self-contained and self-managed. Whereas iOS devices require iTunes to transfer data and the like, Android can do those things without the need to be tethered to a PC. However, that comes at a cost. There's only so much that can be done on the device, and what can be done is sometimes cumbersome. Read More
Hot on the heels of the Jelly Bean update for the Excite 7.7, Toshiba is also pushing the OTA to its larger brother, the Excite 10. Reports are scattered and details are pretty scant at the moment, but we have confirmed that it's rolling out now.
It appears that the OTA – which brings Android 4.1.1 – is being pushed in stages to both the AT300 and AT305. You can see if it's available on your device by heading into Settings > About Tablet > System Updates or by jumping directly into Toshiba's Service Station. Read More
Given Toshiba's track record with Android updates, I thought I'd never get to write this post. Alas, here it is – Android 4.1.1 is officially rolling out to the Excite 7.7. At first blush, it looks like Toshiba did a good job on this one. It actually uses the new "hybrid UI" (like on the Nexus 7), which leads to a much better experience on smaller slates like the 7.7.
The update clocks in at a cool 348MB, so be prepared to wait for just a bit to grab this Jelly Bean goodness. Read More
Here at Android Police, we can't get enough good deals on apps. It's just in our DNA. And sometimes, our deal-seeking genetics tell us to do things we may have some reservations about. Like recommending free apps on the Amazon Appstore - which has its pros and cons. Today was one of the days where we couldn't help ourselves.
Amazon currently has a promo going on called "Free App of the Day Greatest Hits," in which many of the most popular free apps of the day are on sale for the low, low price of - you guessed it - zilch. Read More
Back in October, you may remember that we reported Tapatalk HD for tablets was a thing, that said thing was in beta, and you could download it. Of course, like any off-Play Store beta, getting updates meant downloading a new version whenever one became available, putting it on your device, and all other sorts of messiness no one really likes to deal with. As of today, though, Tapatalk HD for Tablets Beta is on the Play Store, free of charge. Read More
Own a Samsung Vibrant? Or, probably more correctly, recently pawned off a Samsung Vibrant to a relative and / or child, and want to make them hate it less? Good news! CyanogenMod 10.1 nightlies (based on Android 4.2 AOSP) are officially out for the Vibrant now, and you can get them at the CM website.
: A "nightly" is a bleeding edge release that is built on a daily basis, usually at night after a full day's worth of new code has been committed.
If you're into massive, sprawling strategy RPG's, HyperDevBox Studio's Spectral Souls, Blazing Souls, and Generation of Chaos are titles you may already own. If you don't, though, now's probably the best time to invest, as HyperDev has slashed prices on its entire library by 50%.
The price drop brings all three of the developer's games down to near as makes no difference to $7 apiece, and all of them are top-quality ports of old JRPG's from the original PlayStation. Read More
