[Update: Winners] Win One Of Two Moto 360s From Android Police And Appy Geek

Yes, we know – the Moto 360 isn't available yet. But you want to be one of the first to own one, right? Of course you do. And the only thing sweeter than being one of the first to get one is getting one for free. The good folks over at News Republic (the guys who power HTC BlinkFeed) were generous enough to offer up not one, but two units for us to give away as soon as they're available.


Since they're being so cool to us, it's only fair that we all return the favor. How can you do that, you ask?

[Update: Winnners!] Win One Of Five Huawei Ascend Mate 2s From Android Police And

Huawei is a name that most of us have been hearing more and more often lately, as the company has really been pushing its presence in the North American market. It's currently offering some really unique hardware, like the 6.1-inch Ascend Mate 2, which sports a massive 3,900mAh battery. Huawei claims that it'll get you through an entire weekend without needing to hit the wall (up to 2.5 days to be exact). That's pretty insane, especially when you consider the device's $300 price tag. It certainly piqued my interest, anyway.


Other than the gargantuan battery, this big ol' phone is packing some respectable features:

  • 6.1-inch 1280x720 display with Gorilla Glass 3
  • 1.6GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 (MSM89280)
  • 2GB RAM
  • 16GB storage with microSD card slot
  • 13MP f/2.2 28mm rear camera, 5MP front selfie machine
  • 6.3" x 3.3" x .37", 202 grams
  • GSM 850/900/1800/1900; LTE Bands 2, 4, 5, 17
  • Android 4.3 (Will be updated to 4.4)

Another really awesome feature of the Mate 2 is its ability to share its battery.

[Update: Winner!] Win A 64GB Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 LTE From Android Police And Handy Apps

We've been talking about Handy Apps' newest app, Expense IQ, and how it can help users be more aware of their finances, budgeting, save money, etc. But we haven't yet looked at one of EIQ's best features: Cloud Sync. This is an extremely important feature, as it not only makes moving data to a new device easy, but it also keeps a backup safe in the cloud (in your Dropbox account) and makes all info available across multiple devices.

Speaking of, Expense IQ also has a full tablet interface, so users who prefer the bigger screen can take advantage of that.

[Update: Winners] Win One Of Ten Invites To Buy A OnePlus One

Look, let's keep this one short and sweet, shall we? OnePlus One purchase invites are hard to come by, and lots of people want them.

This contest is now over.

[Update: Winner] Win A 16GB Carrier Unlocked GSM HTC One M8 From Handy Apps And Android Police

We've been talking about Handy Apps' Expense IQ app for the past couple of weeks in a series of giveaways sponsored by the company. Today, we want to discuss how EIQ can help you manage money both short and long-term with the app's handy reports feature. In a nutshell, this option allows you to track expenses, income, cash flow, and balances on daily, monthly, or yearly timelines. It gets pretty granular, so you'll know exactly where your money is going.

Expense, Income, and Cash Flow monthly reports can all be broken down by timeframe (year to date, last 6 months, last 12 months, etc.), and can also show spending habits for each category, which is quite handy for those who just can't seem to figure out where their money is going.

[Update: Winner] Win A 16GB Sony Xperia Z2 From Handy Apps And Android Police

Let's talk about money. We all seem to really like that stuff, but most of us never have enough of it. The best way to ensure our money goes further is, of course, through budgeting and planning. Sure, it's tedious and not a lot of fun (or no fun at all), but being broke four days before payday isn't any fun, either; sometimes you have to pick the lesser of two evils. I'd choose budgeting.

Fortunately, Handy Apps has released the long-awaited successor to its EZ Money app, making budgeting and financial planning a little less, well, mundane. The app is called Expense IQ, and it brings a whole slew of financial tools to your smartphone or tablet (yes, there is a dedicated tablet interface).

[Update: Winner!] Win A 16GB Galaxy S5 And Gear Fit From Bitdefender And Android Police

Smartphones are probably some of the most personal devices on the planet. They hold our contacts. Our family photos. Our, um, personal photos. Text messages. Private conversations. Many of a person's secrets could probably be uncovered with a little exploration of their smartphone. So, what's the best way to keep things safe on your smartphone? With a little security, of course.

Android offers a few of its own solutions to keeping your private data private, like a customizable unlock pattern, password, or PIN code on the lockscreen. If someone were to get past that, however, it's open season – all your data is just there for the taking.
