Pebble fans have been faithfully following each step of the breakout smartwatch since it set almost every Kickstarter record ever. While most of the big news has died down, that doesn't mean the development team is on a break. To speed up the process of getting new features and bug fixes out to eager users, Pebble is opening up an official beta channel through the Play Store. These betas are technically for the Pebble companion app, but since the app also installs firmware updates on the watch, it's likely that you'll be able to get in on all of the new features.
If you're running Android 4.2, odds are pretty good that you have also installed Roman Nurik's popular lock screen widget, DashClock Widget. Now, thanks to the new method of running beta tests in the Play Store, you can also try out the latest features and improvements before they officially launch. By joining this program, test versions pop up as if they were regular updates.
The setup process is quick and painless.
Users that have been testing out Dolphin Browser's newest private beta received a somewhat alarming email this morning: a message containing the email addresses of thousands of other beta testers. The email also included some rather interesting "keys," but it hasn't been determined what the keys represent at this point, or if they have anything to do with the leaked addresses.
If you're a part of the Dolphin Beta and you didn't receive this email, you need to be aware that your email address may have been leaked as well.
