AT&T Updates The Galaxy Tab 4 8.0 To 5.1.1, Sprint's Galaxy Tab 4 7.0 Lags Behind With 5.0

There doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason to which carriers release updates for their Android updates first, and once you stray outside of the shallow waters of flagship smartphones, things start to get really inconsistent. For example, AT&T is updating its carrier-specific version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 8.0 to 5.1.1 today, at least according to this support page. But at the same time, Sprint's Galaxy Tab 4 7.0 is only just now getting upgraded from Android 4.4 to 5.0.

[Update: Official Changelog] [APK Download] Google's Clock 4.2 Adds Gradual Alarm Volume, Separate Timer Alarms, And More

Google seems to really love tinkering with its Clock app. The latest version of the app, 4.2, should be rolling out in the Play Store now. This one is available to everyone running Android 4.4 or higher (we didn't grab it from one of the Android M preview builds). It has exactly one new notable feature: the ability to gradually increase alarm volume, which is a fairly typical feature of alarm apps (and even real, physical clocks). The rest is a bunch of visual tweaking.

Following The Accord, Honda's Second 2016 Model With Android Auto Support Is The Civic

The Honda Civic is one of the most popular economy cars on the planet, thanks in no small part to Honda's continual updates over the last forty years. The 2016 model year, which incidentally includes a complete redesign for its tenth generation, will be the first model to support Google's Android Auto digital platform. It's the second car model in Honda's lineup to do so, after the larger 2016 Accord, and it also supports Apple's CarPlay standard.

According to a press release by Honda, the new models will appear in North America this fall after rolling off of the manufacturing lines in Indiana and Ontario.

The developers behind appfour have a few crazy and not so crazy apps under their name. There's the useful AIDE which lets you develop Android apps on an Android phone, and then there are some Android Wear apps trying to pretend that microscopic watch screen is enough to do things we usually use 5-inch+ displays for. Like Gmail or web browsers or YouTube. And now they're back with another app that spells out what it does in its name: Messages for Android Wear.

The app works with both SMS and Hangouts accounts, displaying your list of conversations and the last few messages from each one, and letting you reply by pecking on a keyboard.

CBS Releases An Android TV App For 'All Access' Subscribers

It seems awfully strange that services like Hulu and the various TV apps require you to pay or log in to access content, especially when that content originally aired for free on terrestrial television. They broadcast the shows with ads in the first place, and they're making money on the ads embedded in the streaming video too, so why put up any barrier to entry and lower your potential revenue? CBS, the self-styled "Most-Watched Network in America," takes this one step further with a full, Netflix-style paid service just for its shows. It's called CBS All Access, and it costs $5.99 a month.
