Ten cents. What can you buy at the store with ten cents? Nothing. You can't even buy a Tootsie Roll Pop for that price, those suckers cost at least a quarter now! You might not be able to buy any physical goods for a dime these days, but today you can buy an awesome game with mechanized warfare for that price. The game I'm talking about is Epic War Tower Defense 2 by developer AMT games.
Epic War TD 2 has been out for a little over a year now, so it's likely this sale is a just a way for the developer to drum up interest for a new title by getting naïve tech bloggers to write about the steep discount in an... Read More
It was almost a year ago that Google posted the session list for I/O 2015 with an interesting "voice access" talk. That was eventually removed from the schedule and we didn't hear anything about it in Android M. Now, Google has announced Voice Actions as a beta in the Play Store (Android 5.0 and higher).

Android's notification system has gone through some pretty intense work since the start of the platform, but that doesn't mean that third-party developers can't improve it even more. Case in point: Floatify, a customization app that's been floating around (sorry) for the better part of two years. The latest version is number ten, and it adds a couple of features from the new Android N Developer Preview. If your device isn't invited to play with the Nexus crowd (or you just don't want to deal with the instability), you can back-port some of those neat touches. Read More
It sometimes may feel like the Google Photos web app gets a little left behind in the wake of its Android brethren, but today is the day: a post on Google+ from the Photos team has detailed the latest update, which brings improvements in the upload procedure and all-new keyboard shortcuts.
Photos can now be uploaded directly to an album, instead of having to upload photos and then add them to an album after they've uploaded. This should make it much easier to upload large batches of photos from a DSLR or other camera which doesn't connect to Google Photos. The keyboard shortcuts, meanwhile, will hopefully make navigation through the web interface more efficient, making it easier to move through photos or perform actions on an individual photo, such as editing or deleting.
