We've talked about App Cloner before, and one of the problems we specifically noted was incompatibility with WhatsApp. Well, the update to 1.4.0 brings with it precisely that support, and that is a very good thing.Read More
Icon packs are in a tricky legal gray area. Almost all of them (if not all) contain trademarked images legally owned by the original developers, and to make matters worse, many icon packs are paid. One developer recently submitted a new icon pack to the Play Store, only to have it rejected for "content owned by a third party."Read More
One of the many new features in the Android O Developer Preview is the Autofill API, which allows apps to fill in text fields automatically. Many people immediately thought of password managers when the API was announced, and shortly after the Dev Preview went live, 1Password whipped up a demo of using the feature.Read More
I love having the Google Assistant shopping list in Keep. It means that I can access it whenever I want on the phone and the web, add items to it, and share it with my fiancé while we're in the process of furnishing our apartment. It also means that we don't have to worry about using another app: everything we need is organized in Keep and so is our shopping list.
But that's about to change soon, very soon, like this-Monday soon. A new notice is showing up for users when they open up their Google Assistant Shopping List in Keep telling them that changes are afoot.Read More
Since our last LineageOS post, the project has continued to add new features and support new devices. In addition to new Quick Settings tiles and changes to included apps, the ROM now supports 16 additional devices.Read More
Amazon has a pretty good deal today on a 4-pack of microUSB adapters. These particular units are originally $7.99, but through the magic of Slickdeals and the associated promo code (2YZPICHF) an extra $3.04 can be knocked off. And the difference between having $3 and needing $3 is $6, more than these cost on sale! See, you're making money.Read More
Amazon is running one of today's Gold Box deals on JBL's Flip 3 splashproof portable bluetooth speaker. These normally sell for a few pennies under $100, but for the next few hours, Amazon is selling them for $63.99, netting customers a 36% discount.
The Flip 3 is one of the most well-reviewed portable bluetooth speakers on the market, earning a 4.4 star rating from customers on Amazon. Our own former contributor Cameron really loved it when he reviewed it back when it first launched. I personally own one myself and can speak for how much sound this little guy can put out.Read More
As of April 3rd, 2017 the Nexus 6/Shamu has truly reached end of life status. Although we knew it was coming, it seems it was easier to keep the buildbots running until more major changes were made. We’d like to take this time to sit back and reminisce on our fond, and large, memories of the device. Death, however, is not the end, but a new beginning. Or, at least, an excuse for those of us without upgrade fever to move ourselves over to a nice and shiny new ROM. While Google may have given up on Shamu, some devices just can’t stay down.Read More
The OnePlus 3 and 3T were some of the best phones of last year, especially given their low prices. Both phones were updated to Nougat at the end of 2016, being among the first non-Google devices to receive the new version. Unfortunately, OnePlus has yet to update the OnePlus 2 or OnePlus X to Nougat, and isn't communicating with customers.Read More
