Sony's Xperia Ear has been available since earlier this month (or mid-October if you count pre-orders) after being announced at MWC in February, and now we have the final piece of the puzzle: the companion app, allowing users to configure and control the app according to personal preference.
For a brief recap, when you put the Ear into, um, your ear, it will tell you your schedule, the weather, and the latest news. It has a gyroscope and accelerometer, so it can tell what position it's in, when you're walking, or if you're asleep. This means you can nod to confirm something, which is pretty cool, or shake your head to decline. Read More

Welcome to a slightly more niche version of the Android Police app and game roundup. Because I have the Lenovo Phab2 Pro in my hands (note the plural there), we all thought it would be a good idea if we gave a list of the Tango apps and games for this shiny new device. Everything on this list will utilize the power of augmented reality and the sensors in the phone to offer some new experiences.
Before we dive in, I have a challenge for you. See if you can figure out what I am trying to hint at throughout the overviews. Read More
Scrolling through Buzzfeed articles is possibly the most mindless thing to do on the web - apart from aimlessly browsing Wikipedia - so it makes sense companies want to capitalize on the site's reputation. Google has done just that, adding a number of Buzzfeed stickers into Allo, just in time for Thanksgiving. Read More
Version 7.0 of the phone app for Nexus and Pixel devices has arrived, with... you guessed it, no major changes at all. There are some minor updates and re-workings, but this one most likely will not blow your socks off.
Firstly, a 'block/report spam' option has been added to the long press dialog in the call log - in previous versions, only 'Copy number' and 'Edit number before call' were present. Read More
Telegram updates are always fun. Not only do the developers tend to release substantial new features, but the changelogs and blog posts are amusing.

The HTC 10 came out a good while ago now - at least in terms of technology - so the Taiwanese company is feeling the need to refresh its lineup in time for Christmas. Just as well, then, that the HTC Bolt came out recently, right? Well, HTC is now releasing that phone for international markets, under the name HTC 10 evo.
