When it comes to gadget bags, I'm like a woman with purses: I have a selection to choose from. Not because I just love buying new bags all the time, but because I'm always on the hunt for something better, though ninety-five percent of the time, I have no idea what that "something" is. So I'm always open to new options.
Thus, when SPIGEN reached out to me to take a look at the newest member of their backpack lineup - the Coated Backpack ($99, SPIGEN, Amazon) - I was all in. Read More
Android 4.2 is here, and with it comes proper support for multiple users on tablets. According to Cam, it's easy to setup and intuitive to use, too. Unfortunately, it doesn't work on phones at this point (presumably because of a Nokia patent). Read More
Welcome to the Android Police Week In Review - your source for the biggest Android stories of the week. Don't forget, you can catch a lot of these stories (and more) on our weekly podcast.
Maybe you already have your Nexus 4. Maybe you have to wait three more weeks to get it. Or maybe you didn't get one before they sold out. Regardless of your particular situation, if a Nexus 4 is in your future (or present), there's a pretty good chance you're going to want to root and ROM it. And, honestly, not everyone is comfortable doing this kind of thing manually. Good news: the Nexus 4 toolkit is here! Read More
With the recent Nexus announcements, there has been an influx of users expressing how much they need a microSD card slot. If you're one of those people, and have that much stuff, then Best Buy's Deal of the Day is for you.
For the next four hours (at the time of writing this, of course), can you get a SanDisk Ultra 64GB microSD card for just $43. That's sixty-four geebees of storage for less than a buck a gig. Read More
When I first got my Nexus 7, I ran it naked. Not because I had no other choice, but because I wasn't interested in any of the cases that were available at the time. Then, at the Big Android BBQ, I happened to see the new Active cases from Seidio ($35-45, SeidioOnline). I really liked the Active case for the Galaxy Nexus back when I reviewed it, and Seidio's offering for the Nexus 7 looks equally as protective and comes with a nifty cover/stand. Read More
I hope you've been paying attention to Harry's teachings for the last six years. You're going to need the code if you hope to avoid getting caught in Dexter the Game 2, which has just been released to the Play Store today. We first heard about this one back in July, before season 7 got underway. Now it's more than half over. Right around the time the story starts to lull before ramping back up to the finale. Read More
File this one under How did Google not have a test for this? Got a birthday or anniversary in December? Sorry - Android 4.2 doesn't know what December is. Well, rather the People/Contacts app that comes stock and is part of the Android Open Source Project (AOSP) doesn't. Wait... what?
We couldn't believe it either, but it's true. Google forgot to include December. As in, there are 11 months in a year. Read More
PC gamers alive in the 1990's will remember the XCOM series of games as bastions of the strategy genre. In each, you took control of a global organization that was tasked with defending the Earth from aliens; you did so in turn-based missions, where you killed enemies, escorted VIPs, and defended objectives.
Now imagine that (with some tweaks, of course) on Android.
The premise of The Hunters: Episode One is relatively simple: you are the leader of a team of mercenaries, and you can take different contracts on a daily basis. Read More
Google is pushing out an updated Google Play Store version 3.10.9 that follows the previous versions 3.9.16 and 3.9.17. As always, we have the APK for your downloading pleasure (thanks, @WinDroidGuy!).
So far, I noticed a new screen that pops up after you start installing new apps. Read More
