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.

Toca Hair Salon 2 Is The Second Selection In Google's Awkward 'Free App Of The Week' Promotion

You may remember Google posted a new kind of app promotion last week. It offered a PBS Kids app that was usually $3 for free, which is kind of a big deal for the Play Store. Developers cannot currently make a listing free then go back to paid. It looks like Google is going to continue doing this for a bit, as there's a new free app of the week—Toca Hair Salon 2. This would be great if only the redemption process wasn't so jacked up.

Amazon Cloud Drive Photos has been around since 2012, but that was a photo-specific product that came years after Dropbox, to name one competitor, was already letting mobile users back up whatever they want. Amazon Cloud Player Music launched in 2011, but again, that just stored audio files.

It is only now in 2015 that Amazon has made a non-specialized Cloud Drive app available for Android.
