1Password For Android Hits Version 6.0, Gets Redesigned And Fingerprint Reader Support

Password protection is no joke, and if you can remember all of your passwords, then you're doing something wrong. The most likely option is that you're using the same password (or a few variations) across every site on the web. That's not a thing anyone should do.

Thankfully there are apps like 1Password to help you out with the whole password thing — no one should have to remember 1600 different passwords, and keeping them stored in a note-taking document is basically a terrible idea. Locking them up in a vault is the only way to go.

With the most recent update, 1Password's vault just got a lot better, too.

Chainfire's FlashFire Tool Updated To v0.27 With Marshmallow And OTA Support

We don't talk about rooting nearly as much these days. It's not that plenty of people aren't still doing it, but the popularity of modding has slowly dropped off as Android continues to mature. One of the leading deterrents to rooting is the hassle of manually staying current with updates, which can take more effort than it's worth–especially with Google adopting a monthly rollout schedule for Nexus security updates. Chainfire, developer of SuperSU, has updated his app FlashFire to take the pain out of keeping up-to-date by adding support for OTA packages and Android 6.0 Marshmallow.

BubbleUPnP 2.6 Supports Google Cast On Amazon Fire Tablets And Other Devices Without Play Services

Sticking a Chromecast dongle is one of the cheapest ways to teach a dumb TV how to stream your favorite content. The downside is that Google's little media stick is heavily tied into the company's ecosystem. If your Android device lacks Google Play Services, you're not casting.

Here in the States, only a minority of Android devices have this issue. The majority of them are Amazon Fire tablets, with a few belonging to folks who either try to avoid or can't install Google Play Services for one reason or another. Then there are all those Chinese phones and tablets that get apps from alternative app stores.
