The T-Mobile Galaxy S6 And S6 Edge Are Getting Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow Today

Marshmallow has been out for about six months now, and there are still some very recent phones that don't have the update. For example, the T-Mobile Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge... until today. These devices are finally getting the Marshmallow OTA. Sprint and Verizon both rolled their GS6 updates out recently, leaving AT&T as the sole holdout.

Sygic Makes Paid Dashcam And Head-Up Display Add-Ons Free To All Premium Users, Includes Speed Camera For Basic Users

Sygic is one of the most well known mapping software providers especially in car dashboards. And thanks to detailed TomTom maps, offline maps access, extensive POI databases, and some more features available in its app, it's also a viable option on your Android phone. The free tier only gets you this far though, it's the Premium option that enables turn-by-turn navigation, speed limit warnings, lane guidance, and more. However, even if you had paid for the Premium license, you still didn't have access to the Dashcam and Head-up Display features.

Those were paid add-ons (on top of your paid Premium license), but that changes today.

It's update season at Verizon at the moment, with lots of phones on the network getting updates to Marshmallow. The latest is Samsung's Galaxy S6 Edge+, receiving a build which takes it from the Lollipop-based LMY47X to the all-new MMB29K.

Remix OS 2.0 Beta Now Available For The Nexus 9, Nexus 10, And Remix Ultratablet

Jide Technology wants to give as many users the option to try out its own flavor of Android. This involved rolling out the 2.0 Beta to PC devices about a month ago with plenty of features that were missing from the alpha when we tested it a couple of months prior. But you don't have to have a PC to test Remix now as the OS has been released in beta for the Nexus 9 and Nexus 10. (Jide had previously released Remix OS 1.5 to these tablets, so this isn't the first time its software becomes available for them.)

The pages and downloads are available on Jide's website.

Play Movies & TV v3.13 Includes The New Play Branding Icon And Details An Aspect Of Streaming From The Family Library [APK Teardown + Download]

A few days ago, Google announced newly revised icons for its Play-branded apps. Newsstand was the first to emerge with the updated look, but aside from very minor tweaks to a few of the icons inside the app, there wasn't anything significant to be seen. The Play Movies & TV app received a pretty similar update, again with a few minimal icon changes and the new launcher icon, but there's actually something more interesting in the teardown: new rules about streaming paid content when it's shared in the family library.

What's New

[App Review] The Wait For Posted Speed Limits In Google Maps Is Over Thanks To New App Velociraptor

I love Google Maps. It's one of the most useful applications on my phone, and I would be lost without it. Not metaphorically, but literally – I'm really quite awful with directions. A lot of great features have been added over the years, including some sweet new ones just a few days ago, But there's one feature we all still hunger for, and that feature is posted speed limits. Thanks to a new app called Velociraptor by developer PlusCubed, that's a feature we can now enjoy – albeit with a couple of minor hiccups.

Overview

Velociraptor works by overlaying a floating icon over top of the Google Maps app.

[Deal Alert] Corsair's 32GB USB 3.0-MicroUSB Flash Drive Combo Is Just $12 On Amazon With Free Prime Shipping

If you happen to own an Android phone or tablet that works with USB On-The-Go (OTG) for external storage, you'd probably like some storage gadgets that can take advantage of it. Combo drives - standard USB on one side, MicroUSB on the other - have been on the market for years, but they're not easy to find and they usually carry a premium over more conventional designs.

Floatify Version 10 Adds Android N-Themed Notifications And Swipe Actions

Android's notification system has gone through some pretty intense work since the start of the platform, but that doesn't mean that third-party developers can't improve it even more. Case in point: Floatify, a customization app that's been floating around (sorry) for the better part of two years. The latest version is number ten, and it adds a couple of features from the new Android N Developer Preview. If your device isn't invited to play with the Nexus crowd (or you just don't want to deal with the instability), you can back-port some of those neat touches.

[Weekend Poll] How Many Pictures Do You Take With Your Smartphone's Camera, On Average?

Smartphone cameras are often at the forefront of hardware evolution year over year when the latest and greatest devices are announced. Whether it be larger pixels, more pixels, better auto-focus, processing, lenses, or literally more cameras, smartphone makers are constantly trying to tell us that the cameras on their devices are always better than they were just twelve months - or less - prior.

This weekend's poll is easy: how many photos do you typically snap in a month? That's not a terribly hard thing to estimate (heck, just go into your gallery and look at dates / frequency of photo taking), so I've given some pretty tightly tuned options that I hope will encompass most of your use cases.
