Pepperidge Farm DROID Ultra, DROID Maxx, and DROID Mini owners remember: they've been waiting that long to get their much-needed upgrade, watching with envy while the Verizon-specific phones were passed over and Moto's more general X and G lines got their updates.

Motorola Touchless Control Updated With A 'What's Up' Command That Reads Out Notifications

The Touchless Control feature on the Moto X and Verizon's 2013 DROIDs (Ultra, Maxx, and Mini) is already one of the coolest Android manufacturer add-ons around.

Motorola Gives Its Droid Zap File Sharing App A UI Makeover With New Cards Interface And Sidebar Navigation

Motorola first released the Droid Zap app back in August, and while it consisted largely of blacks and reds, it still provided a relatively integrated experience.
