Sony is apparently really serious about creating its own Google Glass competitor. You'd think Google's inability to talk everyone into wearing a computer on their faces would give Sony pause, but here we are with the official Sony SmartEyeglass app in the Play Store.

Chrono List Is A Simple, Material, And Completely Free Interval Timer

Sometimes developers strike (figurative) gold. They send an app submission just when you're thinking that you need to find an app that does the exact same thing, and it's Presidents Day so your plate is otherwise empty and you can try it out. Such is the case with Chrono List. But let's back up.

For a few days now, I have been thinking how silly it is that I have to keep staring at my treadmill's timer to figure out when to switch speeds during my runs.

Adobe's proprietary PDF format isn't much fun to work with on any platform, but marking up and editing those documents on Android is a particularly poor experience.

Impulse Is The Perfect Watch Face To Complement Your Valentine's Day Plans

Whether you are going out tonight on an expensive date or you've prepared the most romantic night-in for your significant other, here's a small added gesture you can use to persuade them of how much you love them. Put this watch face up on your Android Wear, take a picture and send it to your partner. Tell them you're counting the minutes until you see them, and every time you glance at your watch, you're reminded of how your heart beats for them.* Cheesy. But isn't the entire "holiday" built around just that?

One of the problems with instant messaging since time immemorial has been juggling contacts and conversations across multiple services.

The day you've (maybe) been waiting for has finally arrived—Xposed for Android 5.0 is finally available on XDA.

Friday App And Game Sales: Today Calendar, Star Command, Ticket to Ride, And More

You might have taken advantage of that cool Chromecast deal last week to get some free Google Play credit, but what can you spend it on? Maybe some of this stuff because it's on sale. Might as well make that free money go as far as possible.

Facebook Is Testing A Version Of Its App With Material UI Elements

Facebook's app has long been a source of great discontent among the Android faithful. Facebook goes its own way with design and is slow to change direction, but it looks like some users are getting an updated version of the UI that has at least a little material influence.
