NBC's Android app provides free episodes that anyone can stream regardless of whether or not they pay for television. Now the company is adding live streaming to the experience, but unfortunately, the story here isn't the same.

Adobe's proprietary PDF format isn't much fun to work with on any platform, but marking up and editing those documents on Android is a particularly poor experience. Developer Branchfire has offered an Android version of its iAnnotate app for a little over two years, but it hasn't been met with the same acclaim as the iOS version, probably thanks to a clunky interface and missing features. Apparently the company wanted a clean break with the latest update, because the app has been moved to a new Play Store listing and reverted to a 1.0 release.

Verizon's Ellipsis 7 Tablet Isn't Ready For Lollipop, Gets KitKat Update Instead

The Verizon Ellipsis 7 launched in November of 2013, a time shortly after Google released the Nexus 5 and manufacturers were thinking about pushing KitKat to their devices. Given the timing, it made sense that Verizon didn't ship Android 4.4 on its tablet.
