Sunrise Calendar Updated To v4.0 With 'Meet' Quick-Scheduling Keyboard

Making a new meeting usually requires going into your calendar app in some capacity, but the new version of Sunrise offers an alternative. You can simply switch to the Sunrise Meet "keyboard" to set things up. They call it a keyboard, but all it really has in common with other keyboards is that it's in the keyboard area of your screen.

Snake Rewind Review: The Original Mobile Game Comes Back Without Selling Out

It's close to a universal among those who are old enough that we all once owned a Nokia phone and played Snake. We didn't get those early cell phones to play games, but lo and behold, there was a simple and addicting game within. After many years, Snake's creator the man who brought Snake to mobile phones—Taneli Armanto—has teamed with Rumilus Design to revamp and re-release the classic with a little bit of modern flair. After their recent announcement, Armanto and Rumilus released the game to the Play Store yesterday. I've been testing it a bit longer than that and have enjoyed the way the creators stayed true to the original concept while still sprucing things up for a completely new era of mobile gaming.

Rdio Introduces New 'Select' Plan With A Limit Of 25 Downloaded Tracks For $3.99 A Month

Today Rdio announced a new subscription plan that serves as a more affordable option for listeners who want to get rid of ads but don't want to pay $9.99 a month. With Rdio Select, folks can do so for just $3.99 instead.

What's the catch? Rdio Select gives you up to twenty-five songs at a time to carry around on your devices. You can keep them for as long as you're subscribed, but you need to remove songs once you're ready to add more. You can replace all twenty-five once per day. If this sounds bothersome, you're going to have to make the leap to Rdio Unlimited.

Google Play Adds Carrier Billing To 3 Operators in Taiwan And Appropriately Renames The Networks In Its Support Page

A new update to Google Play's "Accepted Payment Methods" page has revealed a lot of changes to the direct billing section. First and foremost is the addition of 3 new carriers in Taiwan: Chunghwa Telecom, the country's leading operator with over 11M subscribers (according to Wikipedia), as well as Asia Pacific Telecom and T Star, the fourth and fifth ranked operators, respectively. These join previously supported Taiwan Mobile and FarEasTone Telecom, which have the second and third largest subscriber base in Taiwan.
