BeyondPod Adds Android Auto Support And A Few Minor Changes In The Latest Beta

Android Auto is finally here! Sort of. It's available in exactly one (incredibly expensive) car stereo at the moment, meaning that there are probably more active users of the Nexus Q right now. But that isn't stopping some responsible developers from adding the support for the new hardware into their apps, and today popular podcast manager BeyondPod joins them. The latest beta version, available as a direct download or via the Play Store beta system, works with Google's automotive electronics push.

[Android 5.1 Feature Spotlight] Pattern Unlock Gets An Updated Animation

Personally, I'm usually not a secure lock screen user. Very rare is the occasion that my phone is out of my sight, so I usually just breeze right past the lock screen. But after a tip from a reader, I'm giving the lock screen a second look on Android 5.1. For users who rely on a pattern-based lock, Android 5.1 has yet another delightful detail - a new animation after a successful unlock. Now, the pattern dots float up more elegantly, gently rolling into the transition that delivers the home screen. The dots have animated in gracefully since 5.0, so it's nice to see their out animation catch up.

Can A Smartwatch Make Your Car Smarter? A Week With Hyundai's BlueLink For Android Wear

If you own a reasonably modern car (say, within two or three years old), there's a significant chance that car has some kind of cellular connectivity embedded in it, and this allows the car to do stuff remotely. Like, start. Or unlock the doors. Or lock them. Or honk the horn. These things have names... like mbrace (Mercedes), AcuraLink, Enform (Lexus), OnStar (GM), MyLincoln, and so on.

Hyundai's version, BlueLink, isn't the most fully-featured of the bunch, to be honest. But, as one of the first and arguably most enthusiastic Android Auto partners, Hyundai's shown an interest in Android that few automakers have, as evidenced by the fact that BlueLink now has an app for Android Wear.

AT&T's Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Is Also Getting Its Lollipop Update Today

What's this? A current-generation AT&T phone and its year-old sibling getting updated on the same day? We have an embarrassment of riches, folks. Just a few hours after the Lollipop over-the-air update for the Galaxy Note 4 started on Ma Bell, the Galaxy Note 3 (from 2013) is getting the same treatment. AT&T's support page says that this is Android 5.0, build number N900AUCUEOC1.

As AT&T does with all their updates, the OTA will only start on Wi-Fi (and not that mobile connection that you're paying them to provide). The OTA file is a massive 1.2 gigabytes, and whatever server AT&T uses for these things probably has some tiny Flintstones dinosaur manually pushing data packets down a CAT-5 cable.
