LG Announces Mid-Range Stylus 2 Ahead Of Mobile World Congress

LG is going to announce the G5 at MWC in just a few days, but that's not all. The smartphone maker has taken the wraps off the Stylus 2, a considerably less exciting phone, but one that won't make such a big dent in your bank account. Plus, it has a stylus. I know, who would have thought?

New Android Commercial Uses 'Not The Same' Musical Analogy, Leads To Confusing Tweets

Google has been on a kick lately with Android ads featuring the "Be together. Not the same" slogan, and the latest uses a piano to make its point. The ad shows what it would be like if all those keys were the same instead of different, which is fun and kind of clever. However, the @Android Twitter account got a little carried away with the letter "C."

JetBrains Releases v1.0 Of Kotlin, A Smart JVM-Compatible Language That Can Be Used To Write Android Apps

Kotlin has been emerging as a programming language to keep a close eye on. It started as an internal project at JetBrains back in 2011 and was released early the next year. Taking inspiration from both classic C-based languages and a number of modern alternatives like Scala, Kotlin is branded as a "pragmatic" language and modeled to encourage smarter coding and easier readability. JetBrains has been tiptoeing up to an official v1.0 release for a few months, and today, it's finally here.

While it's still a fledgling language, Kotlin has earned some enthusiastic supporters among the Android development community, even a few Googlers have discussed using it in projects.

LG Announces New X Series Smartphones Ahead Of Mobile World Congress

LG likes to do this thing where it announces devices and accessories before the trade show where they'll actually get announced or shown off, and late last night the company did just that with the new X series smartphones. Basically, this is a new line of mid-range phones from LG that will offer "one exceptional feature." It kind of doesn't make sense until you actually see what each of these phones is all about.

LG-X-screen

First off is the X screen. This phone takes the V10's unique "second screen" and makes it available in a more affordable model (though exact pricing hasn't been announced).

VNC Viewer 2.0 (From RealVNC) Remotes Into The Play Store With Material Design, Immersive Fullscreen, And More

Running remote desktop software from an Android device has a different purpose than doing the same from a traditional PC. When you're connecting from a laptop, you're probably accessing an application at home or work that only exists on that one machine. But on Android, you have the option to greatly expand what your phone or tablet can do.

In a way, it feels like cheating.

Bombing Bastards (Previously Android TV Only) Launches For All Android Devices, And It's Completely Free

The arcade-style game Bombing Bastards hit Android TV last year, but now it's finally available on regular Android devices. This is actually a separate listing from the Android TV game, and it's completely free. Yes, like the real kind of free, not free-to-play.

Stylish Snowboarding Endless Runner Alto's Adventure Slides Into The Play Store

Android isn't hurting for endless runners, but at this point, most of them don't bring anything new to the table. That can't be said of Alto's Adventure, a new iOS port from prolific publisher Noodlecake and developer Snowman. What it lacks in revolutionary design it makes up for in pure, dripping style: everything from the pastel coloring to the shifting weather to the smooth 2D animations oozes with careful design. If you're tired of a never-ending parade of "retro" 8-bit games on mobile, Alto's Adventure might just be the cure.

The gameplay itself isn't all that interesting. Your player character snowboards down a gently-sloping mountain, chasing llamas, grabbing coins, jumping over rocks, and grinding on improbably load-bearing bunting.

Qualcomm Announces New ARM Chips, LTE Modem, And Wearable Platform

Qualcomm did not have a great 2015 with the issues surrounding the 810, but it's looking to turn that around in 2016. The Snapdragon 820 might help, but the fancy high-end chips aren't everything. Qualcomm has announced several new mid-range ARM chips, as well as a new modem and a wearable-specific SoC.
