[New App] Titanfall Gets Companion App For Android, PC Gamers Need Not Apply

Microsoft put a good deal of focus on Titanfall when it pushed out the Xbox One, and it remains the most high-profile title for the console. The action-packed first person shooter shakes up the traditional deathmatch formula by adding mechs that players are free to hop in and out of. As a result, the game introduces more of a vertical component to the firefight, as combatants are able to hop along walls and wage war across various floors.

Swype App Updated To Not Ask Where You Are 4000 Times A Day Because It Probably Shouldn't Do That, Also Fixes Other Stuff

After numerous reports that the Swype app was making OCD-level location requests on some users' devices, the company updated the popular 3rd party keyboard to, well, not do that. At least one user claimed the app requested his location nearly 4000 times in a single day, which obviously has some rather unfortunate implications for battery life.

Skylock Is The Smartest Bike Lock Ever, Or It Will Be If It Reaches Its $50,000 Funding Goal

Bike locks are a pretty mundane tool: you use one because you have to. It's not about what kind of fancy toys it has or how it looks, it's strictly about function. How tough is it, how easy is it to open, and how versatile is it in terms of locking location. Those are the questions we traditionally ask ourselves when shopping for a lock, right?
