Spotify v2.0 Brings Faster App Startup And No More Interruptions From Notification Sounds

There's a v2.0 update to the Spotify app today, and it brings a few new features. It's maybe not as significant as you might expect from a v2.0 revision, but you're still looking at solid improvements. No, Chromecast support is not one of them. Sorry.

Amazon Music 4.3 Makes Streaming Easier Thanks To A New Prime Music Section, Quicker Access, Better Search, And More

Those of you with an Amazon Prime account also have a stockpile of music open to you through the company's half-a-year-old streaming service, and with version 4.3 of the Android app, the retailer is making those tracks easier to access.

Instead of browsing through the company's virtual store shelves and adding albums to your library as though you were buying them, you can just browse through a separate Prime Music section. When you click on a song there, it simply starts playing.

OnStar RemoteLink App Updated To v2.0 With A New, Much Less Horrible UI

Usually a UI overhaul that's just okay isn't newsworthy, but I want you to understand how fundamentally ugly the OnStar RemoteLink app looked before now. So first, look at the new app below—it's okay, maybe a little plain. Then click through to see the horror of the old version (NSFL).

The Witcher Battle Arena Review: A Surprisingly Great Free-To-Play Experience

The second mobile title based on The Witcher series of games has arrived on Android, and it's a bit more action-packed than the board game from a few months ago. The Witcher Battle Arena is a multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) game based on The Witcher universe.

Mad Catz MOJO Micro-Console Gets Another Price Drop To $150

It's been almost a year since gaming accessory maker Mad Catz tried its hand at Android hardware with the MOJO (or M.O.J.O., despite the lack of any actual acronym).

Maybe that's why Mad Catz has decided to do it again: the MOJO can now be had for $149.99.

Dragon Quest V Raids The Play Store With A Party Full Of Monsters Demanding $14.99

Square Enix has been quick about porting the Dragon Quest entries to Android, even if they haven't come in necessarily the right order.

Now Square Enix has brought over Dragon Quest V: Hand of the Heavenly Blade.


Dragon Quest V originally debuted in 1992 for the Super Famicon, but the game didn't come to North American shores until the release of a remake for the Nintendo DS in 2009.

Version 40 of Google Chrome went live today after a couple months in beta. There's no single headlining feature in this update, but there are a variety of genuinely useful additions and fixes. It is Wednesday, after all, and what better update than a major Chrome release?

NFL Mobile App Gets Updated For Super Bowl XLIX, Will Even Include Commercials

The official mobile app of the NFL is getting a few new features in preparation for February 1st's Super Bowl. Verizon customers will enjoy live streaming of the game while anyone can access news, event maps, and a variety of content for those watching and attending the big game.


The attendee-specific features seem particularly thoughtful, with Google-powered maps that have relevant locations bookmarked built into the app. Beyond that, there is also content to answer questions about stadium policy and anything else people might be concerned with.
