Mozilla has rolled a new version of Firefox out to the Android browser's stable channel, bringing with it screen mirroring and a few other goodies. This isn't the first time some of this has popped up in Firefox, but being the stable channel, it all works now.Read More
The numbers are in - the Android version distribution numbers, that is. This month's update shows no surprising change in trends, with KitKat adoption growing 3.7% over last month. Jelly Bean continues its net decline, this month losing 2.2% of the pie.
Ice Cream Sandwich fell 0.7%, as did Gingerbread, and Froyo is down another 0.1%. Lollipop isn't featured in the chart, as it does not yet have the requisite 0.1% to be shown.Read More
The Crescent Moon Mobile Bundle was already an impressive collection of DRM-free Android gaming goodness when it hit the web a week ago, and now it's even better. The ten included games (four of which making their Android debuts) have been joined by three more—Aralon: Sword and Shadow, Clash of Puppets, and Slingshot Racing.
Like most late Humble Bundle additions, these three titles have made the rounds a few times. Aralon: Sword and Shadow is an epic RPG that brings Elder Scrolls-inspired gameplay to mobile devices.Read More
Nova is a homescreen launcher replacement that doesn't look like one, an option that feels about as close to stock as anything non-stock can—except immediately following the release of a new version of Android. During that time, Nova looks slightly dated, harking back to a distant past known to us as several months ago (or, for the majority of devices out there, the present). But without fail, an update comes that brings Nova users the look and feel of Google's latest homescreen.Read More
Some HTC One M7 variants appear to be getting a new OTA update. As for what's new, apparently not much. All we know is that it contains "important enhancements and bug fixes related to improving phone call experience," and that it isn't Lollipop.
The update is version 6.09.401.11, and weighs in at a fairly hefty 193.01 MB, so whatever was changed must involve some somewhat substantial code modifications. The update also keeps the M7 on Android 4.4.3/KitKat.Read More
It's a real bummer that the Nexus 6 has been so hard to find, but supply is starting to catch up to demand. T-Mobile has enough in stock to be offering a nice little Cyber Monday deal. The Nexus 6 is $50 off if you buy it today.Read More

In a move that shows Microsoft's interest in improving its products for rival platforms, the company has acquired Accompli, a developer whose email client is available for both Android and iOS.
Accompli, as the app is also called, triages your inbox, giving priority to the messages that may be the most important. It combines this with filters and other features geared towards giving you control of your mail.
Accompli currently sits in the Play Store with somewhere between 10,000 - 50,000 installs, but the number of users impacted by this acquisition will be much higher.Read More
