New Invite-Only Kevo Beta Program Offering Touch-To-Open Support Now Available For Android Lollipop Users

The Kwikset Kevo Bluetooth-enabled door lock lets owners unlock a door just by tapping a finger against it, as long as their phones are in range.

Got Too Many Android Wear Watch Faces? Wear FaceLift Will Switch Between Them Automatically

Google still hasn't added official support for third-party Android Wear watch faces, but the recent update to 4.4W.2 that added the ability to hide peek cards is good enough for me.

QKSMS Is A Colorful And Modern Android Text Messaging Client That Pops [Hands-On]

Before the release of Android 4.4, stock Android came with a basic SMS app. It served as a simple way to exchange text messages the old-school way, without dealing with data connections or usernames. Then the functionality got merged into Hangouts, and while a new standard Messenger app is returning for 5.0, there are many people with devices that won't see that update for months—if ever.

SCR Screen Recorder Now Available For Devices Running Android 5.0 And Above, No Root Necessary

One of the new features introduced in Android Lollipop is an android.media.projection API that allows apps to capture the device's screen. Unlike KitKat 4.4, where you could achieve this through ADB and a USB cable (or on your phone directly with some root privileges), this new API works out of the box and opens the screen recording feature to non-root devices.

That Was Fast: Primecast Has Been Disabled And Removed From The Play Store After 36 Hours

Update: the developers of Primecast have confirmed to Android Police that they were "locked out" of the app's streaming functionality.

Don't say we didn't warn you.
