Reddit Is Fun is a minimalist third-party client that keeps your focus on the task at hand - Redditing. Unfortunately, there's been a few areas where the app could use some work. The current version lacks pull-to-refresh and doesn't provide the ability to stop checking modmail (notifications for moderators) independently of regular mail. Clicking on New also serves a pop-up to select New or Rising every time, rather than just showing new content.

Android malware isn't as big of a concern as some mainstream media reports would have you believe, but it is enough of an issue that Google started beefing up its security a few years ago. There's the "Bouncer" server-side scanning that checks apps before they go live, and your device runs app verification as new packages are installed. Now Google is about to patch a hole in the local app scanning by making it run continuously.

If you play games to relax, it might be in your best interest to leave this page right away. Here are forty other games you could consider instead. Don't worry, we won't hold it against you. You see, contrary to how it looks, Dual Survivor isn't an action game. Things shoot at you, but you do not get to shoot back. Your goal is just to protect your cargo as best as you can, only you're not simply maneuvering one energy core around various threats, you're transporting two.

Samsung unveiled literally three smartwatches at MWC this year. If that tells you anything, it should be this: the company is desperate to make a wearable product stick in the marketplace. It will do anything to whittle down the form factor, price point, and functionality consumers are most responsive to. And thus, we now have 3 Gear devices to choose from - the Gear 2, the Gear 2 Neo, and the Gear Fit - Samsung is taking its shotgun approach to the smartphone market and inundating you with wearable choices, hopefully enough choices that you will actually choose to buy one

I reviewed the original Galaxy Gear.

Whether you like it or not, there's little doubting that the Galaxy S5 was the star of the show at this year's Mobile World Congress. Samsung had the largest press event, the most crowded booth, and the most hype built up leading into the show. It doesn't matter if it's still plastic, if it's still running TouchWiz, or that it's still arguably one of the uglier flagship devices on the market - this phone obviously matters a lot.

The smartwatch craze has gotten a little out of hand, if you'll pardon the pun. Various manufacturers and innumerable crowdfunding campaigns seem ready to leap into the shallow waters already populated by Pebble, Sony, Fitbit and the like. Just because Samsung's Galaxy Gear is the most mainstream of these wearable devices doesn't mean it's the best - on the contrary, in addition to general dissatisfaction with the somewhat rushed hardware, many reviewers found themselves questioning the need for a relatively powerful and feature-filled device on their wrist.

Love it or hate it, the Galaxy S5 will almost certainly be the best-selling Android phone in 2014. Whether or not the hardware actually warrants those kinds of incredible sales figures is largely irrelevant, thanks to Samsung's marketing machine and consumers' general willingness to buy things they're familiar with. And "familiar" is certainly an excellent way to describe the phone's hardware. While it isn't quite the ho-hum upgrade that came with the GS4, and there are some significant hardware features that add to its value, the GS5's overall design probably won't win it any new fans.

DashClock's developer released Muzei earlier this month, an attractive live wallpaper app that takes pictures, blurs them, and puts them on your homescreen. By default, you can choose from your own images or opt to have a different work of art serve as your background each day, but shortly after release, a ton of extensions became available for Muzei that you can use to keep your background fresh in any number of ways.

Koush's AllCast app does a good job of streaming media to all manner of set top boxes, and of course the Chromecast. However, it hasn't always looked awesome doing it. Well, now it does – the new update comes with a refreshed UI and adds Muzei support for good measure.

AllCast now has a much improved slide out navigation menu and tabbed browsing of media. The color scheme is nice too.
