Maestria, A Beautiful Puzzle Game, Is Now Free On The Play Store

I love puzzle games. The more I have to use my brain to solve a riddle, the prettier the graphics, and the simpler the story, the better. I can then lose a few minutes trying my hand at a new level or simply get completely drowned for hours on end, going through levels like my life depended on it.

Maestria tickles that side of my gaming addiction. It is exactly the kind of game I should stay away from if I want to be productive at all for the rest of the day. It is eerily similar to Monument Valley in its isometric graphics and pastel color scheme, but the puzzle mechanic is different.

QuickReply Emulates N's Quick Reply Notifications, Available On Lollipop And Up

The quick reply notification feature in the Android N dev previews is a major new feature for Android, so it's not exactly a surprise that users on Marshmallow and Lollipop want the feature too. While hacky solutions from the Hangouts and Messenger apps aren't cutting it, there's another app that might: quickReply beta, from Jawomo, developer of the popular Floatify.

quickReply works in much the same way as other notification enhancement apps do - it taps into Android's notification access permission, then monitors incoming notifications. If a message is received, quickReply will interpret this and add its own buttons - 'Reply' and 'Direct' - into the expanded notification, alongside the original app's quick actions.

More Than Two Months Later, Google+ Notification Filters Still Aren't Live In The Android App (Or Ready Yet)

The Google+ team has been actively working on both the mobile apps and the web version of its service for a few months since the last major revamp, but there's one feature that has been promised since February 24 that is yet to be available to us.

In version 7.3, Luke Wroblewski (ie the Google+ man) announced a new feature that would filter notifications by All, Unread, and Other. The filter drop down never showed up in version 7.3 and we had to wait until v7.6 that was released on April 6 to see a glimpse of it. It was short-lived though and the change was taken away by a server-side switch quickly thereafter.

VRidge Lets Virtual Reality Fans Play Oculus Rift And SteamVR Games Using Google Cardboard

The current boom in virtual reality tech is progressing along roughly two lines: big, complex, and expensive VR headsets driven by full-power gaming machines, like the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive, and small, cheap headsets that slot a high-resolution smartphone in to pull double duty as processing unit and display, like Google Cardboard and Samsung Gear VR. Users who don't have four figures worth of money to burn have had to make do with the latter. But a new app is hoping to change that.

More Leaked Next-Gen Moto X And DROID Photos Appear Online

Motorola has never been very good at keeping a secret, and rumblings of its next-gen phones in the Moto X and Moto G lines have been leaking out to the Internet for several months now. Between a supposed "prototype" image and what look like rendered press shots, no one has been able to completely confirm the design of the upcoming phones, but they certainly look promising. Today the HelloMotoHK Google+ account has posted three new images, two of which seem to show a rendered version of the leaked 2016 Moto X and another that looks like a DROID variant.

[Weekend Poll] Do You Plan To Buy A New Smartphone This Year?

There seems to be a prevailing logic that more and more people are choosing to hold onto their smartphones longer than ever before. Part of this, certainly, is that smartphones are just getting better. But increasingly, we're seeing inexpensive smartphones offering "premium" specifications at much lower prices, prices so low that even upgrading annually you might end up spending less than the every-two-years model with a high-end device.

So, do you plan on buying a new smartphone this year? Vote in the poll, and tell us why or why not in the comments!

Do you plan to buy a new smartphone - for yourself - this year (2016)?

HTC Releases An App For Its 'Ice View' See-Through Case For The HTC 10

HTC really wants to make a cool transparent case for its flagship devices. It started with the One M8 and the "Dot View" case, which adapted the windowed covers first released by Samsung and LG into a grid with Lite Brite-style holes to view the screen underneath. There was a revised Dot View case for the One M9, but for the new HTC 10, we're getting a redesigned and completely transparent "Ice View" case. Like the previous iterations, HTC has released a specialized app in the Play Store to let users operate the case.
