Dashlane Password Manager Gets Support For Samsung Fingerprint Readers

Starting with the Galaxy S5, Samsung has been building fingerprint readers into the home buttons of its flagship devices. Their primary purpose is to give owners an alternative way of unlocking their phones. But some apps, such as LastPass, also take advantage of the hardware. Now another password manager has added support.

Dashlane's biometic authentication lets you swipe your fingerprint to automatically log in to sites or autofill information. It works on the Galaxy S5, S6, Note 4, and Note Edge.

Slacker Radio Updated With Android Auto Support In The Latest Version

Take a moment to consider the plight of poor app developers. In order to evade the fury of Android users, they need to check their apps every few months to make sure they work with incremental updates. Then every once in a while they need to add support for new phones with weird manufacturer skins or new chipset architectures. And if that wasn't enough, Google keeps adding entirely new product categories - Android Wear on smartwatches, Android TV for televisions, and Android Auto for cars.

[Google Wallet Death Watch] Most References To Google Wallet On Play Store Payment Methods Page Have Been Removed

As we know, Google Wallet as a product is probably not too long for this world, at least in the sense of being a product that people actually care about. Android Pay is taking over Google's mobile payment ambitions on Android, Google Payments is now the name of Google's payment system for content on Google Play and your general Google "money management" interface, and then there's Google Hands Free but we're not exactly sure what's going on there just yet. This leaves Wallet in a precarious position, particularly once Android Pay actually is released and its mobile app becomes essentially obsolete for anything but money transfers.

The company's new app for the Pebble family of smartwatches allows both devices to stay in sync, but it needs a smartphone in the middle (Android or iPhone) and apps for both the Misfit and the Pebble on the phone, too.

Android M Developer Preview 2 Fixes Clock App Bug That Caused The 'Snooze' Button To Default To 24 Hours

It's probably not a good idea to use beta versions of operating systems for your "daily driver" phone... or alarm clock, for that matter. When the original Android M Developer Preview landed back in May, we spotted a new version of the Clock app that allowed users to manually select a day of the week to start with. Turns out it had another "feature:" some users reported that sliding to the "snooze" function on the alarm would make the app delay the chime for 24 hours instead of 10 minutes (by default). I imagine this caused some awkward conversations with bosses.
