PlaceIt Creates Realistic Videos Of People Interacting With Any App In Minutes, A Great Marketing Resource For Independent Developers

These days, it takes much more to sell an app. It used to be good enough to build something that simply did what it was supposed to and didn't crash too often. Over time, users came to expect better performance, lower power consumption, and an attractive interface. Even those things aren't always good enough because many apps are presented with high quality demo videos.

[International Giveaway] Win An HTC M9, Samsung Galaxy S6, Or Galaxy S6 Edge With Skins From Android Police And dbrand

When it comes to device skins, dbrand is my go-to company. After going hands-on with some of the company's Nexus 6 offerings back in February, I was extremely impressed with the quality - both materials and precision cutouts. I highly recommend checking them out if you're interested in giving your gadgets a new look. (And if you missed out on the Nexus "X" symbol promotion, well, I'm sorry.)

Just like on mobile, Android TV users turn to the Play Store to install new apps. An update has rolled out that bumps the software up to version 5.4.12. The most immediate difference is a tweaked look, as the interface now sports larger titles.

Verizon Buys AOL For $4.4 Billion, Gets An Abundance Of Sites And A Growing Ad Business

Verizon Wireless and AOL are about to become siblings. Verizon Communications (of which Verizon Wireless is a subsidiary) announced today that it is buying the latter for $4.4 billion. And no, it's not for the dial-up subscribers.

Love or hate it, Verizon offers the strongest mobile network in the US, and it's one of the top broadband providers. In a future where people will stream more and more of their media over the web to an increasingly diverse range of gadgets, Verizon clearly has a role to play.

The LG Watch Urbane Can't Connect To Wi-Fi Networks Channels Above 11, Update Coming Soon

Some early users of LG's Watch Urbane outside of the US were a bit perplexed when they tried to use the Android Wear device's Wi-Fi syncing feature. Apparently the current software build only enables Wi-Fi channels one through eleven - not coincidentally, the only ones legally accessible to consumer electronics in the United States.

Start Saving Your Latinum: Star Trek Trexels Turns The Final Frontier Into A Pixelated Free-To-Play Management Game

Space: the final frontier. Wait, no, that's not right - there's no such thing as a "final" frontier, because there's nothing else, so it can't be a frontier to nothing. Let me start again.

Space: it's really really big, and also pretty empty, and bored humans like to tell stories about all the weird things that might fill it up. So it is that Star Trek, among other things, was born.
