Wileyfox Swift Gets Upgraded To Cyanogen OS Version 13 (Based On Android 6.0.1)

Slowly but surely, Android offshoot-slash-alternative Cyanogen OS is gaining ground. The incorporated and semi-proprietary version of the CyanogenMod ROM now powers a handful of retail-available phones from companies like YU, Zuk, and Smartfen, though larger manufacturers like OnePlus and Oppo have seemingly cooled on Cyanogen software. Speaking of OnePlus, its One hardware was the first to get access to Cyanogen OS version 13, based on Android 6.0.1 code. Today the Swift from Wileyfox becomes the second.

Sony's Stamina Mode Returns In Beta Marshmallow Update, But With Fewer Options

Fans of Sony's Android phones have long touted the advantages of Stamina Mode, which was a bit like Doze Mode before Marshmallow was a thing. However, Google's requirement that OEMs not fiddle with Doze caused Sony to take Stamina Mode out of its Marshmallow builds. Sony promised it would come back, and now it has in the latest beta update.

Five Years Ago, A Google Dev Told Us App Gifting Was On Their List Of Things To Do (It's Still Not There)

As we approach Google I/O 2016, I was engaged in my Thursday ritual of looking for something to throw back to. A Throwback Thursday, if you will. What I stumbled upon was too good to just link on our social networks for consumption - I was floored the moment I read it, and then overcome with a strange combination of the giggles and sadness. Back in 2011 at I/O, as they still do today, Google held "office hours" for developers. Artem was there for AP that year, and he used some of his time asking about things that you, our readers, submitted after a call for questions.

Jide Announces AOC-Built All-In-One PC Running Remix OS, The Android-Based Desktop OS

We've covered Remix OS before, which is Jide's project to mold Android-x86 into a desktop OS, like when they released the Remix Mini plug-in PC. It is a really quite interesting and polished take, borrowing heavily from Linux and Windows 10 design language with your familiar Android apps existing in a windowed environment. While Jide has made it available to download onto your laptop or desktop (and tablets like you would do with Cyanogenmod or similar), they now have a new hardware partner in AOC. The Mars will be a 24" all-in-one PC that runs Remix OS out of the box.

NVIDIA Announces Android 6.0.1 Update For SHIELD Tablet, Marshmallow Still MIA For US LTE Version

NVIDIA started rolling Marshmallow out to the original SHIELD tablet a few months ago after getting the K1 up to date late last year, and now the company is moving the SHIELD to the latest and greatest version. The v4.1 update from 6.0 to 6.0.1 is rolling out now with emoji, security patches, and more. Well, unless you have the more expensive US 32GB LTE SHIELD. Then you're still stuck on Lollipop for some reason.

HTC Says That Marshmallow Updates For The AT&T Versions Of The One M8 And One M9 Will Start On May 12th (Tomorrow)

We've mentioned it before, but Mo Versi of HTC's American division is a good dude. Any given day you can find him on Twitter, answering questions from HTC customers and giving out juicy info on the next major software releases from the company. If every Android manufacturer had someone like Mo, the world would be a better place... and maybe our comment section wouldn't seem so bitter and despondent. Anyway, his latest tidbit is that the AT&T variants of the HTC One M8 and One M9 will be updated to Marshmallow starting tomorrow.
