Razer Resurrects The OUYA Store as 'Cortex' On The Forge TV [Update]

The saga of OUYA is a cautionary tale of how hard it is to build a new gaming platform. After an initial crowdfunding success, OUYA had trouble attracting developers and keeping gamers interested. The company was gobbled up by gaming giant Razer earlier this year, and now the OUYA store is back as Cortex for the Android TV-powered Forge TV.

Microsoft Updates Cortana To v1.2 And Removes "Hey Cortana" Feature In The US [Update]

Microsoft has been branching out recently to make its previously exclusive apps and services available on more platforms. Cortana just became publicly available after a lengthy beta test, and now there's a big update. Not because it added big things, but because it took one away. In v1.2 of the Cortana app, you can't use the "Hey Cortana" hotword in the US anymore.

[Weekend Poll] Do You Use Hangouts For SMS And / Or MMS?

I won't beat around the bush: there's a rumor Google Hangouts may lose its originally much-demanded SMS and MMS capabilities. Google's potential reasoning aside, this is very obviously a user experience concern for everyone who makes use of Hangouts on a daily basis. Even if you don't use Hangouts for SMS or MMS regularly (or ever), the fact that it can do these things may well be a reason to stick with the service in favor of other, competing messaging platforms.

But if Hangouts loses its SMS/MMS powers, that's undoubtedly going to definitely not go over well with anyone who uses it for...

[Hands On] Popular Lip-Sync Music Video App, Triller, Comes To Google Play - It's Actually Incredibly Fun To Play With

Triller. That's a silly sounding name and a really dumb idea for an app.

Those were my first thoughts when I saw this app pop up on the Android Police to-do list. Triller is the kind of app I assumed would appeal only to narcissistic, college-attending, plaid-wearing, hipsters born after the year 1995. The fact that it launched as an iOS exclusive back in July, and this promo video didn't help that perception. It turns out I was wrong, but I'll get to that in a minute.

The concept of the app is pretty simple. First, pick one of the songs featured by the app, or one from your own music library.

Android Police's Team Picks: Our Favorite And Most Used Apps In 2015

We love apps. We talk about them every day here at Android Police, we write biweekly roundups featuring all the cool new apps that are getting released, we choose our top 7 new apps every month, and once in a while we tackle a specific category of apps and show you some interesting choices in it. Apps are an intricate part of what we do here and how we use our devices in general, they're inextricable from our Android usage.

So when Google released its list of Best Apps of 2015 and we noticed some generic and automatically generated recommendations in it, we thought we could try harder.

Google added Drawing Mode to Keep at the end of October and the couple of updates since then seem to focus on fixing bugs. The recent 501 update did make a small but useful addition: there is now an overflow menu in Drawing Mode with links to Delete and Send (i.e. share) your doodles to other apps.

Following in no particular order are the Android Police team's picks for our favorite new Android apps of 2015.
