Maestria, A Beautiful Puzzle Game, Is Now Free On The Play Store

I love puzzle games. The more I have to use my brain to solve a riddle, the prettier the graphics, and the simpler the story, the better. I can then lose a few minutes trying my hand at a new level or simply get completely drowned for hours on end, going through levels like my life depended on it.

Maestria tickles that side of my gaming addiction. It is exactly the kind of game I should stay away from if I want to be productive at all for the rest of the day. It is eerily similar to Monument Valley in its isometric graphics and pastel color scheme, but the puzzle mechanic is different.

VRidge Lets Virtual Reality Fans Play Oculus Rift And SteamVR Games Using Google Cardboard

The current boom in virtual reality tech is progressing along roughly two lines: big, complex, and expensive VR headsets driven by full-power gaming machines, like the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive, and small, cheap headsets that slot a high-resolution smartphone in to pull double duty as processing unit and display, like Google Cardboard and Samsung Gear VR. Users who don't have four figures worth of money to burn have had to make do with the latter. But a new app is hoping to change that.

HTC Releases An App For Its 'Ice View' See-Through Case For The HTC 10

HTC really wants to make a cool transparent case for its flagship devices. It started with the One M8 and the "Dot View" case, which adapted the windowed covers first released by Samsung and LG into a grid with Lite Brite-style holes to view the screen underneath. There was a revised Dot View case for the One M9, but for the new HTC 10, we're getting a redesigned and completely transparent "Ice View" case. Like the previous iterations, HTC has released a specialized app in the Play Store to let users operate the case.

Video Review: HTC 10 - The Road Back

You've read our HTC 10 review, and now we're back with the video version with our ever-lovable video host Mark Burstiner. Mark takes a look at what makes the 10 tick, and if the 10 ticks the boxes it needs to in the increasingly cutthroat flagship smartphone game. HTC's latest device has been almost uniformly praised as the best smartphone they've released since the progenitor of the One series, the One M7, while still inheriting that vital HTC design DNA that made the original One such a showstopper. But is HTC's best good enough in 2016? That's a tougher question.

RootJunky Finds Yet Another Complicated Factory Reset Protection Bypass After The May Nexus Security Patch

Google introduced factory reset protection (FRP) in Android 5.1 to make it impossible to use a stolen device. Ever since then, RootJunky has been finding workarounds for it. Presumably this is all he does, tapping around in the setup menu for hours or days on end until he finds a trick.

Google Launches Slides Q&A, Making Questions And Answers Interactive

I've always found myself nervous when Q&A sessions come up at a talk or presentation - I want to ask a question but can never find the willpower to actually put my hand up and ask it. Slides Q&A, in the latest version of Slides, appears like it might remedy or at least go some way to fixing that situation with its digital, typically Google-y approach to question and answer sessions.

Microsoft Announces SharePoint Mobile Apps, Android Version Coming Later This year

SharePoint has millions of users, but none of them are connecting to the service through a mobile app. That's because Microsoft hasn't yet released one. Users have had to settle for working through a browser instead.

That's now changing.
