[New Game] Thomas Was Alone, But Now He And His Friends Are On Android For $3.99

Games are about a lot of things. This one is about emotions. Thomas Was Alone may not look it from the screenshots, but its characters are going to suck you in and stick with you for a long time.

[New App] Atlas Web Browser Beta Mixes Speed, Advanced Features, And Material Design

It takes a lot for an Android web browser to get our attention. We've got Chrome in all its Googleyness, and we've got Dolphin if you need something more extensible. But the new Atlas browser beta, from NextApp (developers of SystemPanel App), may just warrant your attention.

Verizon Will Begin To Use Network Optimization (Throttling) For Heavy Unlimited LTE Users Starting In October

It's impossible for new customers to buy unlimited mobile data from Verizon. But this wasn't always the case: back in the glory days of, uh, 2010 and earlier, Verizon Wireless was still offering true unlimited data for as little as $30 a month. It's been increasingly hard for users who want to keep their unlimited data to do so: since late 2012, they haven't been able to buy a new subsidized phone without switching over to a plan with a data cap, and the "grandfathered" unlimited data customers who download the most are already subject to "network optimization" when using Verizon's 3G network.

Droid Maxx Developer Edition Reaches End Of Life, No Longer Offered By Motorola

No matter how much we may love a phone, there comes a time for it to head on to greener pastures, to shed its physical body and exchange bytes with the souls of other great handsets in the sky. Today I am sad to write the obituary for the Droid Maxx Developer Edition. This is a great phone with a massive 3500mAh battery and support for wireless charging, giving it the optimal power situation.
