Play Store On Tablets Getting Tablet-Focused Top Lists, Non-Optimized Apps Marked As 'Designed For Phones'

It has traditionally been hard to find properly optimized tablet apps on Android. At first it was simply because there weren't any, but increasingly the problem is visibility. Google is aiming to change that with some new tablet-specific tweaks to the on-device Play Store app. Not only will tablet users see more tablet apps, but they'll be able to tell which apps are designed for larger screens.

Leak: Evleaks Shows Off The Xperia Z1 For T-Mobile

Are you holding out for a stateside release of Sony's new flagship, the Xperia Z1? It appears hope may finally be on the horizon, at least if T-Mobile is an option for you. @evleaks just released a photo of what looks to be an Xperia Z1 headed to America's pinkest carrier, courtesy of a bit of T-Mobile branding along the bottom. Take a looksee.

More Nexus And KitKat Images Leaked, Confirm Tap & Pay, Revamped Location Settings, And New Recent Location Requests History Page

Another day, another set of leaked images exposing what we can expect to see in Android 4.4 "KitKat." These images sprung up on Tutto Android, a popular Italian Android blog, and they largely confirm the location-related changes we detailed yesterday. First, the current Location access screen will, presumably, simply be called Location. On this screen the checkboxes labeled GPS Satellites and Wi-Fi & mobile network location have been removed and are replaced with more simplified options that replicate the same functionality: High accuracy, battery saving, and device sensors.

According to Yelp, "the stars have aligned" for its new release, bringing a much-anticipated feature and a few photo-related tweaks.
