Facebook v37 Is The First Version That Can Be Moved To An SD Card, But It's Kind Of Weird Right Now

Google may not love SD cards anymore, but there are still plenty of users who do. If you're packing an SD card in your phone or tablet, there's a surprise coming your way. The v37 beta release of Facebook can be moved from the internal storage to the SD card, but there are some weird things going on with the implementation.

Todoist Gets A "Pretty" Big Revamp With Material Design, Gestures, Intelligent Input, And Themes

Todoist has been holding my professional and personal life together over the past couple of years, and that is no understatement. In my Stuff We Use article, I mentioned how I use it to prepare my pharmacy's daily orders, but I've also grown to rely on it for my regular to-dos, while preparing for trips, or when inspiration hits me and I come up with a new article idea for Android Police for example.

PSA: WhatsApp Now Lets You Search All Of Your Conversations At Once

We're not sure when this behavior changed in WhatsApp — I was able to track it down as far back as version 2.12.134 but it might have been there before — but it's worth pointing out nonetheless, if only for its boost in convenience. It used to be that whenever you wanted to look for specific words in your WhatsApp chats, you first had to select the conversation where that word occurred and then perform the search.

Monday App And Game Sales: Surgeon Simulator, Fast Burst Camera, A Bunch Of JRPGs, And More

A new week has dawned, and with it new sales in the Play Store. You still can't put games on sale for free, even though Google is doing that manually in the family section of the Play Store, but you can still get some good deals. For example, there are like a billion JRPGs on sale right now.

Google Celebrates Father's Day With More Custom Animations In Hangouts

It's Father's Day. If you have a dad and you appreciate him, go have lunch with him. If he's too far away, call him on the phone, like people used to do before things like touchscreens and smartwatches and Taylor Swift. Don't send him a text message or IM that says "Happy Father's Day" - that's just so tacky. It's the communication equivalent of a last-minute drug store gift card.

If you decide to ignore this advice, and you send Dad a "Happy Father's Day" message through Hangouts, Google won't judge you as harshly as I will.

AutoRemote Voice Control App Adds Integration With IFTTT In Version 3.0.43

If you want to do absolutely everything from the "OK Google" voice prompt in Android... well, you can't. You can't, say, fire a rocket at the moon, or end world hunger, or have a dachshund puppy delivered to your doorstep. But developer João Dias is trying his darnedest to make all of that happen, and with the latest update to his AutoRemote app, it's getting closer and closer. You might even be able to make that rocket thing happen if you know someone at NASA.

Intel's Fashion-Focused MICA Smartband Gets An Official Android Companion App

If you're using a "smart" wearable device because it's fashionable rather than practical (and the current crop of smartwatches have a pretty tenuous grasp on the idea of practicality anyway), then why not just wear an old-fashioned watch or bracelet and deal with the arguable inconvenience of reaching for your phone on occasion? These and other questions might be answered by the Android app for MICA, an Intel-branded wearable that puts fashion over form.

[Weekend Poll & Discussion] Do You Use Google Fit? Do You Like It? Having Problems With The App?

Google Fit is, like most things Google publishes on the Play Store, popular by necessity. The fitness and activity tracking service debuted around the time Android 5.0 did, and people were understandably excited. After all, a built-in fitness and activity tracker app only makes sense on a smartphone full of sensors, and Google is well-renowned for its number-crunching and algorithm-refining prowess. But reviews of the Google Fit app on the Play Store are pretty brutal.

Intel Releases Remote Keyboard App For NUC And Compute Stick Systems

Intel has a lot of things going on these days, including a push for small form factor computers that run Intel hardware. The NUC (Next Unit of Computing) platform has been popular, and now there's the Compute Stick, which has been a little less popular. If you have either, you can now download the Intel Remote Keyboard app and control the system from your phone or tablet.
