Pushbullet-Thumb

Not too long ago, Pushbullet got all prettied up for Android 5.0. The app is a great example of a third-party developer coating their software with Material Design dust and spreading it out to users via an update (I'm pretty sure that's how all this stuff works). Now the team has given its browser extensions the same treatment.

The goal is for the Pushbullet experience to look largely the same regardless of where you access it, whether it's the site, the extension, or the Android app.

If you're a Greenify user who recently updated to Android 5.0, then you may have realized something peculiar: it was broken as crap. For me, it would constantly try to hibernate apps, but that wouldn't happen. As a result, it would try again. And again. And again. It literally drained my Nexus 5's battery twice within a four hour window. I was left with only one choice: uninstall it until an update came out.

2014-11-12 14_19_17-Android on Twitter_ _#AndroidLollipop rollout has started and will soon be avail

Before Android 5.0, notifications would display the first few lines of text in the status bar (the ticker), assuming you didn't already have the notification shade open. Lollipop introduces the idea of heads-up notifications, and Google is so smitten with it that you can't even get the ticker anymore. It's heads up, or just the icon in the status bar.

Samsung-Alpine-Spin.0001

If you've got a Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 (or SGN1012014, as I like to call it) on T-Mobile, you may want to head into Settings > About tablet > Software updates and see if there's something waiting for you. Team Magenta started pushing the 4.4.4 update out today, which also brings Download Booster along with it. Fun times.

New Features

  • Update to Android 4.4 (KitKat)
  • Download Booster

Improvements

  • IPv6 updates

That's essentially the bulk of it right there.

If you are one of the lucky few who were able to place an order for the Nexus 6 from Google or Motorola early on, you might want to check your email. Buyers are reporting their cards have been charged and shipping emails are going out. Interestingly, the phones are shipping directly from Shenzhen, China where they are being produced. These things are fresh off the assembly line.

MyOcean

When some one has taken the time to design a live wallpaper that can semi-convincingly replicate the look of ice cubes floating in artificial water, you just don't let that time and experience go to waste. You channel it into another project. So Asus is rebooting its MyWater live wallpaper with a sequel, MyOcean.

Update: Like MyWater before it, MyOcean was previously available exclusively to Asus devices. Now it's available to others in the Play Store.

You might have heard of Stair Dismount, the oddly addictive game of throwing a dummy off very tall objects. It's ridiculously popular, and now the developer has released a new take on this sort of gameplay called Turbo Dismount. Instead of just nudging the dummy off something tall, you sit it in a vehicle and hit the gas.

I really dig Soundfreaq speakers. In my opinion, they offer some of the best bang-for-your-buck you can get in the portable speaker market. And if you're on the hunt for a good ultra-portable speaker, you'd be hard-pressed to find something better than the Pocket Kick. It's a little-bitty thing that makes not little-bitty sound. In fact, I reviewed it a while back and did a comparison between it and the Jawbone Jambox Mini.

AT&T-Thumb
Last Updated: November 15th, 2014

Update: Let us not forget the Galaxy Tab S 8.4. AT&T has updated that device this week as well, bumping it up to KOT49H.T707AUCU1ANJ5 after a 32MB download. As for the changes, they're a yawn.

  • Carrier Billing enhancements
  • Updates to ATT Mail, Keeper, YPMobile

Those changes are largely the same as the Galaxy Tab S 10.5's OTA this week. This 58MB update left the device at build number KOT49H.T807AUCU1ANJ5.

When Google announced YouTube Music Key, we had a few questions, most of which revolved around how this would affect Google Play Music All Access subscribers. Music Key's inclusion of All Access was part of the announcement, but it wasn't stated whether or not AA subscribers would automatically get access to Music Key, or if they'd have to sign up for the service all over again. Of course, that would be a really stupid way to handle things, so thankfully Google isn't doing that.
