Mural Watchface Puts Awesome 500px Images On Your Watch

Technology is rad, isn't it? I mean, here we are with smartwatches on our wrists with pretty respectable LCD and AMOLED screens. We were using phones a few years ago that didn't have many more pixels than our watches have. Might as well put those pixels to use showing something pretty, like images from 500px. You can do that with Mural Watchface.

Upcoming Material Redesign Of Android Wear App Will Add Wearable Screenshots, New Layout, And More

The Android Wear companion app on Android has been a bit of an eyesore since the platform launched last summer. It looked like something born of a torrid love affair between Jelly Bean and Ice Cream Sandwich and was lacking in options. A new leak from Phandroid shows off the updated Wear app with a new design and features, and it looks much improved.

AT&T might be getting pre-orders lined up tomorrow, but Sprint is going to actually sell the device on Friday. You'll be able to grab it in Sprint stores, though it's unclear if all locations will have stock. We already know T-Mobile will be severely lacking in Nexus 6 stock.

T-Mobile Announces Sony Xperia Z1s OTA Bringing Free In-Flight Texting, Wi-Fi Calling Enhancements, And More

T-Mobile has posted the changelog for an over-the-air update now rolling out to Xperia Z1s owners. The primary new feature is the inclusion of in-flight texting support. This way users can communicate with folks on the ground for free via Gogo thanks to a partnership T-Mobile debuted a couple months back.

This isn't all the OTA has to offer. The update will provide the Xperia Z1s with Wi-Fi calling enhancements, which are always a nice thing to see considering the carrier's reliance on Wi-Fi networks to complement its cellular network.

Xmetrics Reaches Its Indiegogo Funding Goal, Promises Advanced Activity Tracking And Coaching For Swimmers

As a frequent swimmer and a gadget lover, I have spent a lot of time researching activity trackers geared towards those of us who spend more than a couple of hours per week in the pool. The problem is that I never found anything priced acceptably, capable of monitoring the factors that are important for swimmers, and that would sync this data with my Android devices. The Garmin Fenix 2 might be the closest thing to what I want, but it costs at least 4 times as much as a Fitbit One.

The Nexus 6 Will Be Available For Pre-Order From AT&T On November 12th

We've been waiting for what seems like an eternity for solid information about Nexus 6 carrier availability, and AT&T just announced that it will offer pre-orders beginning tomorrow, November 12th.

The pricing breakdown is pretty much what we expected to see:

  • $0 down with AT&T Next: $22.77 per month with AT&T Next 24, $28.46 per month with AT&T Next 18 or $34.15 per month with AT&T Next 12.
  • $249.99 with a two-year agreement
  • $682.99 with no annual commitment

...though I can't possibly fathom why someone would walk into AT&T and pay $682.99 for the device off-contract when it is (kind of) available in the Play Store for $650.

HTC Points And Shoots Its Standard Camera App Into The Play Store

HTC's camera has become the company's latest piece of stock software to enter the Play Store. Here the app will sit on virtual shelves until the time comes for the company to push out future updates to its existing devices in a way that will no longer require a full-on firmware update.

HTC Camera provides a compelling software experience with many options tucked away underneath the surface, but it's held back on flagships by rear-facing hardware with relatively low megapixel counts.

Chrome v39 On Lollipop Supports Custom Multitasking Header/Status Bar Colors With A Simple HTML Tag

The recent app list in Android 5.0 is much more vibrant than it was in KitKat with support for colored header bars, but not all apps are taking advantage of that. As of Chrome v39 (current beta release), developers can add an HTML tag to their site that does the same for Chrome tabs. It's not only the multitasking header—the tag also affects the status bar in Chrome. It's kind of crazy.

Ubisoft Releases Assassin's Creed Unity Companion Android App Ahead Of The Game's November 11th Launch

Assassin's Creed Unity is the first entry in the series that won't be available for last-gen consoles, having been developed to take advantage of the extra power introduced by the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One. This time the franchise heads to Paris and takes place during the French Revolution.
