Yelp (Finally) Adds Ability To Publish Reviews From Mobile, Gets New Photo Features

According to Yelp, "the stars have aligned" for its new release, bringing a much-anticipated feature and a few photo-related tweaks. The anticipated feature I mentioned is, as the title of this post suggests, the ability to publish reviews right from your phone using the "add review" button from any business page.

Previously, users could only draft reviews for publication later through Yelp's website. Now though, you can publish reviews on the go or in the heat of the moment, before ever leaving the establishment you're praising and/or criticizing!

Sony QX10 Lens Review: Sony's Odd New Stepping Stone Between Smartphones And DSLRs

Back at IFA, I got my hands on Sony's QX10 lens camera, one of two such devices the electronics manufacturer announced in Berlin. I wasn't sure what I thought about it then, having only played with it for about a day, but I've spent some quality time with the device since, and I'm ready to lay down my full impression.

For those not quite up to speed, the QX10 (and its higher-end counterpart, the QX100) is a camera in a lens.

Nexus 7 2013 Portenzo HardBack, BookCase And Alano Review: The Nicest (And Most Expensive) Homes For Your Tablet

Android devices are a little under-represented in the area of high-end accessories, and when it comes to cases, you can't get much more high-end than Portenzo. But the Nexus 7 has carved itself a nice little niche, and the American case maker has extended its full line of book-style protective coverings to the Nexus 7 2013. With three case styles ranging from $35 to a whopping $145 (more than half as expensive as the base model Nexus 7 itself), these accessories are not for the feint of heart or the light of wallet.

Motorola DROID Ultra Review: A Decent Phone In Search Of An Audience

The Motorola DROID Ultra is a strange beast, at once a preview of Motorola's Google-centric future and a connection to its recent independent past. While its specifications and software features are nearly identical to the ubiquitous Moto X, a unique design and Verizon exclusivity (along with the DROID Mini and DROID MAXX) means that it shares a market position with previous DROIDs... a position that's somewhat irrelevant these days.

So why would you choose a DROID Ultra over the Moto X?

iMpulse Bluetooth Controller Review: A Terrible Product And A Cautionary Kickstarter Tale

When we first reported on the iMpulse controller, I was excited. A super-portable Bluetooth controller that strives to capture the near-perfect control scheme of the Super NES and only adds a few ounces to my pocket? Sign me up! And that's exactly what I did, almost a year ago.

Now, eleven months later and six months after the controller was supposed to ship, I've got it in my hands. And it is a bitter, bitter disappointment.

Asphalt 8 Airborne Review: You'll Believe A Car Can Fly

Gameloft has released eight games in the Asphalt series in just under nine years. If practice makes perfect, then Asphalt 8 should be nothing less than the greatest racing game ever made. It doesn't quite live up to that lofty goal, but as a top-tier Android game and an impressive arcade-style racer in its own right, it's worth your attention even if you're only casually interested in racing games.

Between the Hot Wheels physics, licensed cars, online play, and gorgeous presentation, Asphalt 8 is worth a lot more than its $1 asking price.

Sinjimoru Sinji Pouch Mini-Review: The Best $13 I've Spent All Year

You've probably seen some of those stick-on phone pouches at your local department store. It's a very simple idea: a little nylon pocket with glue on one side, intended to stick to your smartphone and carry credit/ID cards. I've tried several in a never-ending quest to banish my wallet, but they were all cheap, with poor glue and easily-torn material. Then I chanced $12.99 on the Sinji Pouch.

Nexus 7 (2013) Review: The Best 7" Android Tablet Ever, But Better

I like tablets, and I love tablet apps. Don’t take that the wrong way - I love my Nexus 4, and I use it constantly, but there’s something different about tablets. A large, beautiful screen filled by an app that really shows off the functionality that comes with Android's design language is a great experience. Make that tablet super portable, fast, and priced right, and you’ve got my heart.

Okay, maybe that’s not all it takes for a tablet to win my heart.

NVIDIA SHIELD Review: A Bright New Future For Android Gaming... We Hope

NVIDIA’s SHIELD is a gaming device that defies classification. The full-sized controls and Android software make it more than a portable gaming device, at least on paper, but it doesn't compete with (or complement) more conventional mobile form factors. SHIELD is something entirely new.

The only way to evaluate a gaming machine is on how it plays games, and in that respect, SHIELD is amazing... at least in a few specific circumstances.

Bem Bluetooth Outlet Speaker Quick Review: It Probably Sounded Like A Good Idea At The Time

There are heaps of Bluetooth speakers out there with more or less the same design. Sure, there’s a little tweak here and there – some of them might sound a bit better, and others have better battery life. The Bem Wireless Outlet Speaker takes a somewhat different approach. This unit has no battery because it plugs right into the wall like an AC adapter. In fact, it kind of is an AC adapter.
