Here at Android Police, we tell you readers about deals all the time, but we don't often showcase deals that can be applied to an item of your choice. Today, though, is different; eBay will give any buyer $20 off a smartphone purchase, provided that the phone in question is sold for more than $200, with a promo code. Read More
SoundHound is a bit like Shazam, but on steroids. If it wasn't for Shazam's integration with OK Google, SoundHound would be the only music identification app I have on my phone, because it doesn't just do searches of music playing around you, it can also recognize songs you sing or hum. It works more often than you'd think, even with a couple of missed lyrics, out of tune notes, and even half-accurate hums.
SoundHound also has the benefit of the Hound voice assistant, which means that you can ask it to identify a song, add it to your Spotify playlist, get information about artists and releases, and more without touching a single button. Read More
The response to Lenovo's new Moto Z Droid and Moto Z Force Droid has been mitigated at best. Most of us think they're good phones overall, but the wrong corners have been cut and the Mods strategy isn't convincing enough to sway the decision in their favor.
But if you were already thinking about buying one of these phones and didn't like the offers available from some sellers, there's a new one from Moto itself that might sway you. The company sent these promo codes to its customers through an email, but it's encouraging them to share with friends and relatives. Read More
It's been a while since we've had a good Play Store deal worldwide. Lately, they've all been limited to a few European countries and Australia — not even the US or Canada could benefit from many of the 10 cents price drops we've been posting. But today's different.
League of Stickman, the combat adventure game that's become quite popular with its fast-paced fighting moves and beautiful immersive graphics is down on the Play Store to about 10 cents, worldwide. This is the paid version of the game, which normally costs $0.99, but also still comes with IAP, so keep that in mind. Read More
I still remember getting my HTC Desire Z, rooting it and installing a cleaner custom ROM, then instantly looking for a decent music player on the Play Store that could handle music synchronization from iTunes. After days of research, I settled on PlayerPro and iSyncr, which would let me sync specific playlists from my iMac to my phone along with all the ID3 tags and metadata, even the lyrics and album art. And it took care of syncing back play counts to iTunes, which were used to improve the smart playlists it generated. I was practically using my Desire Z as if it was an iPod and it was revolutionary!

In early 2015, the MEGABOOM was the biggest, baddest speaker in the Ultimate Ears lineup. To get one, you had to fork over $300. By the end of the year, we were happy to see the speaker on sale for $50 off. Now you can turn that dollar sign into a percent sign... and move it to the right. Read More
Apps that do things with photos are becoming very popular these days, with Prisma racking up a considerable amount of downloads since its release on Android almost a month ago. Today, Fragment, an app which converts photos into prismatic works of art, is available for €0.10 in France, Germany, Italy, and Spain, 10p in the UK, 10 RUB in Russia, and $0.20 AUD in Australia.
Having played around with Fragment, it certainly makes photos look really good with little to no effort. There's a shuffle button if you just want to get some kind of prism of your photos, or you can choose what you'd like in the myriad of options. Read More
The Tony Hawk series might be the King of skateboarding games, but that doesn't mean there can't be other viable contenders for the title. True Skate, currently available for $0.10 in many countries (but not in the US), is one such game, and by the looks of it does a damn good job.
True Skate is the official 'Street League Skateboarding' video game, which a bit of Googling tells me is an international competitive skateboarding series. For True Skate to have these credentials is a pretty big indicator of its quality (or at least potential quality) and should inspire confidence if you are a skateboarding fan. Read More
