The debate between physical and digital books is a heated one. Some people prefer the look of a tome on their bookshelf and enjoy the smell of each page as they hold their nose to an old favorite. Others like the convenience that comes with having access to an entire personal library of books whenever and wherever they have their phone. One clear disadvantage of digital books, though, is the ability for a single company to determine when and where you can buy them.

Do you fret about vast government conspiracies, lizard people running the world, and the all-seeing eye of the NSA? Well, you might have a little problem with paranoia there, but you don't have to be paranoid to see the appeal of Telegram. This is a secure messaging app that has full end-to-end encryption, and with version 2.0, a new material design theme.

If you've ever used Chrome for Android, you know it can be an obnoxiously slow browser at times - especially on pages with tons of elements. Part of that, according to Google, has to do with how Chrome currently renders web content, using a pipeline that goes from the CPU to the GPU before content appears on the display. The draw commands from the web page go to the CPU, the CPU turns that code into pixels (textures), and the pixels then go to the GPU which displays them on the screen.

When I switched over to Lollipop on my Nexus 5, I was too lazy to transition back to the Google Now launcher to get that Lollipop aesthetic. Instead, I stuck with Nova, knowing that eventually I'd get the look on TeslaCoil's third-party launcher. Well, today's the day, assuming you're running the beta version of the app.

It's a pretty simple tweak - just jump into Nova's options, head into the Drawer section, and tick the "show pages as cards" button.

We've seen the Keylink pop up a few times at retail and in various rumors. Now it's finally official at $24.99. This Bluetooth dongle goes on your keychain and tethers to your phone so the Moto Connect app can keep tabs on your keys and vice versa.

Reddit Sync is one of the numerous apps Android users can grab in the Play Store to keep up with the site from a mobile device. With the release of version 10, the UI has been hit with a dose of Material Design, just like the Android subreddit before it. The menu button's been detached from the edge of the screen, the side menu now covers up the action bar, and the status bar has turned a tinted shade of blue.

As is the tradition with tablets, Google launched the Nexus 9 recently as a WiFi-only device. The LTE version would be along later, we were told, but no one knew when. Now with T-Mobile's Nexus 6 announcement, they're throwing in an update on the Nexus 9 with LTE—it'll be out in early December.

Over the past month or two, you may have noticed a change in our "APK Download" posts. Previously, we went through an admittedly tedious process of first hunting down the APK we wanted, and then uploading it to a selection of various mirroring services, each with their own interfaces, ad concerns, and other quirks. In fact we have switched mirroring services several times because of intrusive advertising or other issues our readers faced.

The Galaxy Note 4 is Samsung's new baby, but last year's Note 3 is still a fine phone if you're into that whole phablet thing. You can snag an unlocked AT&T Note 3 with 32GB of storage on eBay today for $419.99. It's popped up for less, but those deals were all for the 16GB version.
