Google sent a cryptic email like it usually does, but now the developer has all the details. Turns out Google just wanted to make sure the app was properly licensed to display movie data.

Motorola Connect Update Adds Watchface Customization Shortcut To Android Wear App

The Motorola Connect app isn't required to get use out of your Moto 360, but it is if you want to customize any of those watchfaces that come pre-installed on the device. The latest update doesn't remove that restriction, but it does allow you to hop straight to the tweaking stage from the Android Wear app directly. Take a look.

As you can see in the shots above, an entry titled "Settings" has appeared in the menu between "Set on watch" and "Hide on watch."

Clicking this option shoots you out to the same customization page you would go to by navigating through Motorola Connect directly, so it does little more than give you a choice in how you get there.

Chrome Beta v40 Has New Zoom Behavior That Makes Fixed Headers Scrollable, Less Aggravating

While it might be hard to understand this latest change to Google Chrome at first, you will be very happy once you grasp it. On mobile, websites that have fixed elements - that is, headers or other content that stays in the same place on your screen regardless of which part of the page you are on - can be very annoying. This is especially true when you zoom in, because you often can no longer see the entire element.

[APK Teardown] Google Search v4.1 Hints At Notifications Read Aloud, Project Hera, Social Networking, And A Whole Lot More

Google's developers took a couple of weeks off for the holidays – or from my perspective, they gave me a couple of weeks to rest – but now they're back and it's time for the app updates to resume. Naturally, it's time to breathe life back into the teardowns, and we're back with a big one. Google Search v4.1 began rolling out to users yesterday, and we've already seen quite a few little adjustments and improvements.

[Oh Snap] The Electronic Frontier Foundation's Alert App Snubs iOS For Android Thanks To Apple's Developer Terms

If you haven't heard of the Electronic Frontier Foundation, usually shortened to EFF, it's sort of like the American Civil Liberties Union for the Internet and other digital issues. The non-profit organization's mission statement says that it "champions user privacy, free expression, and innovation through impact litigation, policy analysis, grassroots activism, and technology development." You'll rarely see a headline-grabbing story where tech intersects public policy that the EFF hasn't at least commented on, if not actively campaigned for or against.

WordPress Android App Gets The Material Design Treatment In Version 3.5

Folks editing their WordPress blogs from an Android device running Lollipop are in for a treat. The latest version of the app applies a fresh taste of material design. At the end of the day, the experience doesn't look fundamentally different, but you get a full hamburger menu, a floating action button, and a sidebar that slides out on top of everything else.
