There are a lot of image editing apps on Android, and they all have mostly the same feature set. SKRWT offers something different that you might not realize you needed—and maybe you still don't. I'm torn on that, but the lens correction features in SKRWT have a lot of people excited. Read More
We covered the development of Disruptor Beam's Star Trek Timelines mobile game last year when they released a video intro hosted by none other than Q (John De Lancie). That game is finally available in the Play Store, and it's free. Well, free-ish. There are a boatload of in-app purchases, which is funny when you consider they don't even have money in the 24th century. Read More
Sony unveiled the Xperia Z5 series way back in September 2015, and they're finally coming to the US. The Z5 and Z5 Compact will go on sale February 7th at Amazon, Best Buy, and B&H. The Z5 will be $599 and the Z5 Compact will run you $499. Read More
With LogMeIn having recently bought Lastpass, more than a few people are looking for a replacement. Dashlane is another password manager to consider, and today the company is rolling out version 4.0. The big focus with this release is a design that's consistent across platforms. Whether you sign in from Android, iOS, PC, or Mac, you should encounter a similar user experience. Read More
DotEmu is in the habit of porting older but well-liked games to Android. With titles like R-Type, Double Dragon, and Another World under its belt, now we get something a bit more serious. I Have No Mouth, And I Must Scream was released on PC in 1995, based on the 1967 short story of the same name by Harlan Ellison. You can probably gather from the name that this is not a feel-good sort of game. Read More
When I was making my way through grade school, getting files from one machine to another meant reaching for a floppy disk or a flash drive. By the time I got to college, we were exchanging data online. Today, there are any number of cloud services and apps dedicated to this one task. But most of them have a flaw: they require an Internet connection. Otherwise, it's back to pulling out that flash drive.
While there are USB sticks that work with Android phones, only a relatively small number of Android users have one of those lying around. However, a solid number of them have a Samsung device, and the manufacturer is now doing them a solid by releasing its own Wi-Fi Transfer app to Google Play. Read More
HelloFresh is the kind of service that I would use in a heartbeat if I lived in the US or any of its other supported countries. I like fresh food, I love cooking, and I prefer variety and change to repetitiveness. However, I have little time to research new recipes, plan meals, and go to the store to buy every single ingredient needed to make everything. Plus, it's sometimes hard to find esoteric ingredients and even if I do, I'd only use them once or twice for very specific recipes. That'd be a waste.
HelloFresh aims to simplify that entire process by choosing some recipes for you, letting you pick the ones you like in the classic or vegetarian plan, finding and packing a week's worth of all the fresh ingredients needed, and delivering them to you. Read More
Google Street View has been on many expeditions through time and through our planet, from the Amazon to Greenland, from the Philippines to Jordan to Machu Picchu, but no mission has been as cute as this exploration of the world's largest model railway in Hamburg, Miniatur Wunderland.
It's an exhibit of a tiny world with tiny buildings, 13000 meters of tiny tracks and tiny things with more than 200000 tiny citizens doing what they do. Everything is interactive, the lights change with the day, the trains move, the planes lift off, the fair rides turn, the people dance and bike, and the nature and surroundings are as much of an honest replica as they can be of the real thing.

Right before it announces its new device in the Galaxy S line, Samsung always hypes things up by unveiling bits and pieces of the phone's internals. Late last year, we learned that the Exynos 8 Octa was ready for mass production and for inclusion in the newest S flagship. Today, Samsung has let loose a few more details regarding the actual process of building this new processor.
Its predecessor, the Exynos 7 Octa, was the industry's first chip built on a 14nm FinFET logic process and Samsung is reiterating this year with the second generation of this technology. Thanks to optimizations and transistor structure improvements, the new 14nm FinFET LPP (Low-Power Plus) process delivers up to 15% increase in speed while consuming 15% less power compared to the previous 14nm FinFET LPE (Low-Power Early) process.
