Motorola Flip Case App Supports The New Window Case For The DROID Turbo

The new DROID Turbo for Verizon is a beast of a phone, but Motorola isn't letting it stand alone. The company also announced a proprietary see-through case for the device, with the somewhat benign name "Droid Turbo Flip Case." It's a pretty standard full-body flip case offered in either leather or nylon, but it includes a screen cutout and a transparent cover that lets you view the phone's active notifications, or even answer a call or take a photo, without opening the case.

The Wolf Among Us Comes To The Play Store After Four Months Of Amazon Appstore Exclusivity

This summer Telltale Games brought The Wolf Among Us to Android, a game based on the Fables comic book series from Bill Willingham and DC Comics. There was a catch--the game was only available via the Amazon Appstore. It wasn't a Kindle Fire exclusive or anything, but many Android users don't particularly want to deal with the Appstore for content, even if this means missing out on whatever piece of software is currently the Free App of the Day.

Time Is A Race You Must Embrace, Chase, Retrace, Or Maybe Erase With Void Watch Face

Well son, time is but an illusion of change
Yesterday you had a tiny phone with Snake
Today you're overcome by a desire so strange
To buy the biggest phablet Motorola can make.

Time comes, flies, runs out, it's an elusive affair
Don't waste it by constantly checking the clock
Free yourself from it, put a blank screen on your Wear
It's always noon somewhere, Paris, Rio, or Bangkok.

One smart dev sensed the deceptive nature of time
He made a watch face so black it seemed like Void
So before I trip on a word that doesn't rhyme
I'll advise you to instantly download it on your droid.

3D-Printed Moto 360 Bumper Cases Now Available On Shapeways For $8 - Wait, What?

Most watches don't have much in the way of accessories beyond straps and winders.

To fill that need, a merchant on the 3D printing marketplace Shapeways is selling custom-made bumper cases for the Moto 360. Yeah, really.

The Verizon Galaxy Note 4 Developer Edition Is In Stock And Ready To Ship From Samsung For $700

Ah, Developer Editions, what would we do without you? Probably suck it up and buy the retail versions, since anyone who's actually in the market for a Developer Edition phone on Verizon doesn't have a choice of GSM carriers with unlocked phones. If you've been drooling over the Galaxy Note 4's high-end hardware but lamenting Verizon's locked bootloader policy, Samsung is ready to sell you an unlockable phone. That will be $699.99, please.

[Android 5.0 Lollipop Feature Spotlight] Carriers Can Now Have Google Play Install Their Crapware Automatically, Which Is Good Maybe

Carrier bloatware apps are quite an issue in the US, where many smartphones ship with almost as much useless junk as they do genuinely necessary applications. This junk is lovingly called "crapware," "bloatware," or "shit" interchangeably by those in the smartphone community. Because it is. This disdain largely stems from the fact that many bloatware apps can't be fully uninstalled, only disabled (some can't even manage to do that).

In Android 5.0, Google is hoping to give everyone another option: don't be so awful about it.

Sony Hits The Play Store With A Companion App For The SmartBand Talk SWR30 And A Bunch Of Extensions

A reasonable person would expect Sony to release a single companion app for its SmartBand Talk activity tracker, which comes equipped with a small e-ink display. In this case, a reasonable person would be wrong. Sort of, anyway. Yes, there's one primary app for the SWR30, but you're going to need to install some separate extensions to get full use out of the fitness band once it hits store shelves next month.

If you're in the market for a cheap phone with power to spare, there's an LG G3 with your name on it. Well, it's really best if you're outside the US, but do you really need LTE? At $399.99, the international G3 is a solid deal and $80 less than last time.
