Starific - Endless Reactor Bursts Into The Play Store For Free With No IAPs And Optional Ads

Pong and Space Invaders went to a rave one night and got totally wasted on Pixie Stix and Starbursts. Nine months later, Starific - Endless Reactor, was born. The premise of the new psychedelic mobile game, by developer Beveled Edge, is simple. Keep your star(s) from escaping an octagonal grid while wiping away ever appearing waves of tiles and power-ups. Not grasping it? Watch the promo video and I'll catch up with you after.

Ok, now that you have seen a bit of game footage, we are hopefully on the same page. This game is a frenetic, eye-popping, ear-pounding, thumb-frustrating good time.

TeamViewer 11 Beta Can Access Unattended Android Devices, Run From A Chromebook, And More

Picture this: Someone you know needs help with their Android device. Crazy, I know, but bear with me here. They need help, and no one else can do the job but you.

You could try guiding them over the phone, but doctors have confirmed this as hazardous to your mental health. A better approach would be to send them a link to the TeamViewer app and remote into the device yourself. Thing is, you're using a Chromebook. Yeah, your friends gave you crap when you bought it, but those things have gotten pretty good these days.

Fortunately you're not out of luck.

Latest Chrome Dev Supports The 'Theme-Color' Attribute (Including Tinted Status Bar) Without Merging Tabs And Apps

The stable version 39 of Chrome introduced theme-color attribute support for website developers to give their pages unique and colorful looks when you're browsing them on your Android device. However, for the feature to work at the time, users had to have apps and tabs merged, so that each tab was treated as a separate app in the multitasking tray. Later on, the developer version 47 of Chrome added a workaround to enable theme-color support without merged tabs and apps. But only users who knew how to find flag chrome://flags/#enable-theme-color-in-tabbed-mode and activate it were able to enjoy a colorful address bar header in their browsers.

[Update: Direct Share Now Works On Marshmallow] Starred Messages Make An Appearance In WhatsApp, Perfect For Quickly Accessing Important Texts And Media Files

For the thousands of us who use WhatsApp daily, nay hourly, the app has become a pseudo repository for our digital lives. It has addresses our friends texted us, meeting dates, social plans, important notices from our bosses or coworkers, pictures of our kids or relatives, cute audio blurbs from our loved ones, and so much more. Although the app has a search function, that isn't the optimal way to find a specific message: you may not remember the exact words used or you may simply be looking for a media file that can't be found using the search function.

Opera And Opera Mini Get Updates Including Video Compression For Opera And Download Notifications For Mini

Opera is still that other browser. It's not the most popular Android browser, or even the most popular alternative to Chrome, but it does carve out a niche with the built-in compression features. Plus, it's based on Chromium. Today, both Opera and Opera Mini have gotten notable updates. Perhaps most interesting is the ability for Opera to compress video streams to save data and prevent buffering in poor signal areas.
