[Weekend Poll] Have You Ever Purchased A Play Store Gift Card?

Gift cards for digital storefronts have been around some time, but Google first unveiled them for the Play Store back in 2012, just a little over two years ago. Since then, they've been rolled out to a fair number of countries across the world, and we're curious: have you ever actually bought one?

Jack And Jill Are Google's New Compilers For Android App Developers

Android has gone through quite a few changes during its short 6 years of life. The Android that drives most of the world's smartphones of today would be almost unrecognizable to what was launched in late 2008. We've seen massive visual changes, expansion to almost every conceivable form factor, and a completely fleshed-out content ecosystem for multimedia and apps.

AirDroid 3 Beta Now Available With Desktop Companion Apps For Windows And OS X

AirDroid is one of those indispensible tools that goes on a new phone or tablet the minute I set it up. And it's only gotten better in the years since it debuted: the second version of the web-based management app allowed users to access their Android device for files, contacts, photos, and other functions from any browser with a login system.

XBMC/Kodi Remote App Yatse Gets A Visual Makeover In Version 5.0 Beta

Play As A Benevolent Creator In Peter Molyneux's Godus, Now Available For Android

God games are particularly well-suited to mobile platforms, where the top-down interface lends itself well to touch controls, and the size of the screen - not to put too fine a point on it - helps with the deity fantasy. One of the more popular and unconventional latter entries in the genre is indie darling Godus from 22cans, published on the Play Store by DeNa. You can grab the free download now.

MX Player Removes Native Support For AC3 and MLP Audio Codecs, Workaround Available

Since the recent update to MX Player, many users are running into a new problem: there's no sound in certain videos. It turns out the latest release of the popular video player removed support for two audio codecs: AC3 and MLP.

However, there is a simple workaround that will get things working again with relatively little hassle.

[Deal Alert] The 32GB Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Is $329 ($170 Off) At B&H Photo

OK, so perhaps the latest version of the Galaxy Note tablet isn't impressing you, thanks to that overly large 12.2-inch screen. If you'd like a deal on something very similar but a little more manageable, B&H Photo has the 32GB version of the Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition (man, I'm glad they did away with that naming scheme) for $329. That's a whopping $270 off of the price of the 32GB model at launch last year, and still $170 off of Amazon's current price.
