Budget MVNO Ting Officially Recommends The Nexus 6, Complete With Android Police Watermark

Ting would like you to know that the Nexus 6 works great with its low price MVNO service. And it does: thanks to the N6's all-inclusive radio setup, the phone sold on the Play Store in the US can be used on both the company's CDMA and GSM network setups. There's just one problem - that's not a Nexus 6.

Author Of Surprisingly Well-Marketed Android Malware "Dendroid" Arrested In Multi-National Cybercrime Raid

Last year, there was a rather widely-covered story about a piece of Android malware (rather, an Android malware control suite) called Dendroid. That malware was published for sale on a cybercrime-aligned forum known as Darkode, and it just so happens that the FBI (with assistance from agencies in other nations) just arrested the guy who wrote Dendroid as part of a larger raid on Darkode's operators.

That guy is Morgan C. Culbertson, who has a pretty solid real name, but somehow the most tragically boring and uninventive criminal alias of all time: "Android." Come on, Morgan - you could have done better.

[Android M Feature Spotlight] Apps Now Need Your Permission To Read And Write To External Storage

The M preview changes the way Android deals with permissions. Rather than viewing a bulky list and approving all of the things an app wants access to right from the beginning, M lets you grant permission as the need arises.

Starting with the second preview, apps now need permission to access storage outside of their own personal space. This was something they could do out-of-the-box in the first preview build of Android M. Now attempting to read or write to any area that is also accessible to other apps has been designated as dangerous behavior, and you will have to allow apps to do so.

Wednesday App And Game Sales: Anomaly 2, Astro File Manager, And More

While Amazon's Prime Day sales have been pretty disappointing, there's always something worth checking out in the Play Store. The discounts might not be as drastic or as great in number, but they last more than 30 seconds, so you've got a shot at taking advantage.

Google Play Newsstand Paid Content Now Available In The Philippines, Poland, Taiwan, And Ukraine

Newsstand is probably the least sought-after of Google's various media offerings in the Play Store, if only because most of the content found in those newspapers and magazines is available elsewhere. Even so, Google seems to be standing by it. Today four new territories have access to the paid issues and subscriptions in Newsstand: the Philippines, Poland, Taiwan, and Ukraine. Readers from those countries, head to the Play Store on the web or your phone or tablet to check it out.

As usual, the change was posted in an update to the official Google Play availability chart. Free content on Newsstand is available everywhere, but so far only 22 countries have access to paid content.

Time Warner Cable Updates Live Streaming App With A New Look And UI Tweaks In Version 4.0

The Time Warner Cable app is somewhat of a luxury reserved exclusively for paying customers. Like competing TV subscription add-ons, it provides the ability to watch shows on your Android device and a way to control the tube other than reaching for the remote. Version 4.0 updates the experience with a new look.

The changes may require a double take. The toolbar remains largely the same, with Live TV, Guide, DVR Manager, and On Demand spread across the top. The user interface tucked away under each category has received an overhaul. Things are flatter now. It's not material, but it's more Lollipop-y than Gingerbread-y.

Galaxy S6 Review Addendum: Three Months Later

The Galaxy S6 has been out for three months now, so it's time to revisit this phone and see if any of my feelings from the original review have evolved. At the time this seemed like a pretty fantastic phone with few drawbacks. Samsung made a lot of changes with this year's Galaxy flagship, so does it also avoid some of the long-term pitfalls of past phones? Let's find out.

New Game REDDEN Lets You Play As A Magic Bullet In Stylish Silhouette

Remember that awesome credits sequence from Lord of War? Imagine that as an artsy 2D silhouette game, and you might get something close to Redden. This touch-based shooting title has mechanics that are incredibly simple, but the stylish presentation and unique take on the story make it worth a look if you want something different. Redden is $2.44 in the Play Store and has no advertising or in-app purchases, at least at launch.

Redden begins in a derelict junk shop, where an animate iPhone talks smack to some of the older inhabitants, Brave Little Toaster-style. The story progresses as various weapons - an arrow, a kunai throwing knife, and a bullet - tell tales from their own perspectives.
