Not everyone needs a drone. But among those who want one, a good number of them wouldn't mind strapping a camera to the bugger just to see what shots they can get. The DJI Phantom 2 Vision quadcopter comes with a built-in 14MP camera. Convenient, right?
If you have been on the fence about whether or not to purchase Google's latest tablet, the Nexus 9, Best Buy may have made your decision a little easier. For the next two days, the blue box store is discounting the price of the 16GB model by $75, bringing the price down to a more reasonable $325. The verdict is still out among Android Police staff on whether or not this is a great tablet, but a lower price might make up for some of its warts.
HTC is ready to take your money, or rather, it will be soon. Pre-orders for the One M9 will go live through HTC tonight at 12:01AM on March 27th. You can pick one up at various retailers and carriers when the device is officially launched on April 10th, as previously announced.
Developer Chris Lacy has pushed out another update to Action Launcher, bumping the software up to version 3.3. Just over a month has passed since the last major release, and plenty of new features have crept in during that time.
One of the most visual changes is the ability for Quicktheme — which lets Action Launcher match your wallpaper like a chameleon — to integrate with live wallpapers. This is done through an open source API that requires changes on the live wallpaper side of the equation in order to work.
Borderlands is a super-popular series of intense, multiplayer-focused first-person shooter games. So it's odd, very odd, that the most exciting thing to happen to the series since the original game came out in 2009... is a single-player, offline, point-and-click adventure title. That's right, TellTale's Tales From The Borderlands adventure series is awesome, and its stand-alone story is more engaging than pretty much all of Gearbox's existing sci-fi lore combined. In my opinion, of course.
Flipboard allows you to create a constantly changing news magazine from your social feeds, and it's getting a little bit more social today with the update to v3.2. This update makes it possible to share a magazine with other people, get their attention on Twitter, and more right from the app.
Back in early January of this year, IK Multimedia announced the iRig 2, one of three Android-compatible digital music interfaces announced by the company in recent months. While the first one -- the iRig HD-A -- is compatible exclusively with Samsung Professional Audio devices (Note 3/4, Galaxy S5/6/Edge), the iRig 2 is the first interface on the market that should support most Android 5.0 devices in some way or another.
Today marks the public release of the iRig 2, and it's already available from retailers like Musician's Friend and Sweetwater Music, though Amazon shows that it's actually not available until March 30th.
We have spotted a real unicorn: an established iOS app has come to Android with a smoothly functioning app that boasts Material Design from the get-go. It's neither a port of their Apple predecessor nor a half-baked effort just to claim cross-platform compatibility. If you're into a relatively minimal interface and an Inbox Zero type of approach to task management, Swipes is worth a look.
The workflow, if you want it to, can be a lot like Google's Inbox is for Gmail. Speaking of, the developers promise integration with Gmail soon for Android users. Also, Google Calendar is on the way, but with less clear of an arrival date.
The Pal Bot is a wired speaker, not a Bluetooth speaker, which is probably why it's usually sold for only $30. It features a compact stereo speaker setup with a passive subwoofer crammed into its 4.8" tall body.
