When I switched over to Lollipop on my Nexus 5, I was too lazy to transition back to the Google Now launcher to get that Lollipop aesthetic. Instead, I stuck with Nova, knowing that eventually I'd get the look on TeslaCoil's third-party launcher. Well, today's the day, assuming you're running the beta version of the app.
It's a pretty simple tweak - just jump into Nova's options, head into the Drawer section, and tick the "show pages as cards" button. Read More
We've seen the Keylink pop up a few times at retail and in various rumors. Now it's finally official at $24.99. This Bluetooth dongle goes on your keychain and tethers to your phone so the Moto Connect app can keep tabs on your keys and vice versa.
Reddit Sync is one of the numerous apps Android users can grab in the Play Store to keep up with the site from a mobile device. With the release of version 10, the UI has been hit with a dose of Material Design, just like the Android subreddit before it. The menu button's been detached from the edge of the screen, the side menu now covers up the action bar, and the status bar has turned a tinted shade of blue. Read More
As is the tradition with tablets, Google launched the Nexus 9 recently as a WiFi-only device. The LTE version would be along later, we were told, but no one knew when. Now with T-Mobile's Nexus 6 announcement, they're throwing in an update on the Nexus 9 with LTE—it'll be out in early December.
The Galaxy Note 4 is Samsung's new baby, but last year's Note 3 is still a fine phone if you're into that whole phablet thing. You can snag an unlocked AT&T Note 3 with 32GB of storage on eBay today for $419.99. It's popped up for less, but those deals were all for the 16GB version.

T-Mobile is now accepting orders (as opposed to pre-orders) for the Nexus 6 through the T-Mobile website in both 32 and 64GB trims, though the only color option remains Midnight Blue, as it will likely always be for carrier-bought versions of the device.
Selecting either storage variant allows you to choose standard 2-4 day shipping or upgrade to overnight service for $12, though nowhere in the checkout process is it actually made clear when your Nexus 6 will ship, only the amount of time it will take to arrive once it does. Read More
Our Nexus phones and tablets may have tasted Lollipop now, but we're still waiting for other devices to get to the sweetness of Android 5.0. This update brings the most significant changes we've seen since Ice Cream Sandwich, only much of Google's visual overhaul will disappear behind various manufacturers' custom UIs. That leaves us to wonder just how much of Lollipop folks will get to see on devices such as the HTC One M8. Read More
If you use the device security suite Cerberus, the app is getting one of its biggest updates ever in a couple of weeks, but you can grab it on the beta channel right now if you're not inclined to wait / want to be a guinea pig. Version 3.0 overhauls the design of the app to meet Google's material guidelines (as interpreted by Cerberus, of course), but there are a bunch of features packed in there, too. Read More
