Livescribe+ Updates To Stable Release For Android, Is Now Available Globally

 

We've followed smartpen maker Livescribe's path to Android compatibility, starting with their announcement at CES that they would finally bring their app to the platform. It then released as a preview less than two weeks ago in select locales. Starting today, they are both dropping the "preview" label and making the app available globally.

Livescribe+ and its companion app collectively manage the connection and notes taken with their newest smartpen, the Livescribe 3.

Just like on mobile, Android TV users turn to the Play Store to install new apps. An update has rolled out that bumps the software up to version 5.4.12. The most immediate difference is a tweaked look, as the interface now sports larger titles.

Start Saving Your Latinum: Star Trek Trexels Turns The Final Frontier Into A Pixelated Free-To-Play Management Game

Space: the final frontier. Wait, no, that's not right - there's no such thing as a "final" frontier, because there's nothing else, so it can't be a frontier to nothing. Let me start again.

Google Acknowledges WebView-Related App And Device Crashing, Says The New Version Should Fix It

One of the less glamorous improvements to Android 5.0 Lollipop is the move to updating WebView via the Play Store rather than only with system updates. WebView is the component that lets apps render web pages internally rather than kicking you over to a browser. A recent update to WebView was crashes left and right, but now Google thinks it has that all sorted out.

Swype Keyboard v1.9 Adds Times And Dollar Amounts To Prediction Bar, Learns To Complete Short Phrases, And More

Swype, at its core, helps us be lazy. Want to type? Don't bother lifting up your thumb. Don't know how to spell? Just get close. Sure, these are only the byproducts of creating an input method that takes the pain out of using touchscreens, but the end result is the same. And things are only getting easier.

The latest update reduces the need to hold down keys with numbers as secondary characters or switch back and forth between alphabetical and numerical keyboards.

[Why We Can't Have Nice Things] Google Halts Maps Maker Submissions Following Pissing Bugdroid Incident And Other Spam

Last month someone thought it would be funny to submit a depiction of a Bugdroid pissing on an Apple in Maps Maker.

The shutdown will take effect tomorrow, May 12th. A notice is greeting users who head over to google.com/mapmaker.

HTC Releases DLNA App Into The Play Store Complete With A Few Minor Updates

From there, HTC devices can receive updates more quickly than waiting for over-the-air firmware updates. Apps remain exclusively available on the company's hardware, so this does nothing to open them up to more users.

The latest addition is HTC Service - DLNA. To explain this, get ready for a bunch of acronyms. This app is what enables your phone to work with DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance Server). The background service lets devices connect via DMR (Digital Media Renderer) to play files stored in DMS (Digital Media Server).
