HTC Starts Android 4.2.2 Rollout For One X+ – OTA Live In Taiwan, System Dump And Custom ROM Already Available

HTC hasn't completely forgotten its older devices as it continues talking up the HTC One. The One X+ is finally getting an update to Android 4.2.2, which is actually newer software than the current generation One in the US runs... but that's beside the point. The OTA is hitting Taiwan first, but we've already got a full system dump and a ROM based on it.

The software features are essentially the same as you'd see on other HTC devices running 4.2.2.

Textbooks Now Live In Google Play Books, Still Eats Into Your Beer Money

As promised at Google's recent event, textbooks have arrived in the Play Store. They have been tacked on as a sub-section of Play Books, not a completely new area of the store. At present, there is no way to filter within textbooks only, but search seems to work fairly well for finding books on a particular subject.

Samsung Releases Samsung Wallet To The Play Store, Unsurprisingly Still Exclusive To Samsung Devices

Samsung has dropped Samsung Wallet into the Play Store, an app previously only available through Samsung Apps on devices such as the Galaxy S4, Note 2, and Galaxy S3. We first heard about the offering back at this year's Mobile World Congress, and its functionality hasn't changed from what was promised. This remains Samsung's answer to Apple's Passbook, just easier to find than before.

Phiaton Bridge MS 500 Headphones Review: Quality Sounds And Comfort Without Compromises

When it comes to audio on-the-go, the consumer market has come full circle over the last several decades: back in the 80s it wasn't uncommon to see kids running around with massive headphones attached to their skulls, rocking out to whatever crap their parents hated the most. Fast-forward twenty years, and it was all about earbuds – stuffing tiny speakers into your ear canals was the only [socially acceptable] way to listen to music.

[New Game] Nun Attack: Run & Gun Blasts Into The Play Store Armed With Iron Faith And Holy Power-Ups

There isn't much depth to Nun Attack: Run & Gun, but it has crisp visuals, memorable nuns that are armed to the teeth, pick-up-and-play controls, and lots of gore. The game is righteous, dirty, casual fun, and it's now available for everyone in the Play Store. The original Nun Attack attracted millions of downloads, and we expect the sequel will do the same.

The action in Nun Attack: Run & Gun is pretty straightforward, as it's essentially summed up in the game's title.

[Bug-Watch] Android 4.3 - Running An App That Watches The Clipboard Will Cause Other Apps To Crash When You Copy From Them.

We're all happy to see Android 4.3 finally make its appearance, especially as it brings some pretty important and positive low-level improvements like Bluetooth Low Energy and TRIM support. Unfortunately, new versions often introduce new bugs that slip by even the most diligent testers. Jelly Bean 4.2 had its fair share of issues, including an almost comically bad oversight: the total annihilation of December in the stock Contacts app. This is why each major release is often followed by a couple of bug fix OTAs in the following weeks.
