OnePlus Teases An Upcoming Gaming Device (For Some Reason) Debuting In April

OnePlus never met a product it couldn't portend in the most annoying way possible. So it is with the company's new "game changer," a device teased (where else?) on the official OnePlus forum. A representative says it's not a tablet or a smartwatch, and offers three teaser images to try and whet the appetites of potentially new and repeat customers. Let's have a look, shall we?

The first image shows just a red circle in HAL 9000 fashion.

[Deal Alert] Five Nights At Freddy's 2 Plus A $1 MP3 Credit And 33 Other Apps Are Free To Commemorate The Amazon Appstore's 4th Birthday

Today is one of those nice days where Amazon's Free App of the Day is far more than just a single app. Of course, just one of them may make it all worth it. Five Nights at Freddy's 2, the popular survival horror game, is among the free choices and you even get a $1 MP3 credit just for downloading. Yep, even if you don't have the slightest interest in it, you should probably download it and buy yourself a song.

The occasion is the Appstore's fourth birthday, so another side benefit is that a single download enters you into a drawing for a $25,000 reward.

LinkedIn Releases Dedicated Job Search App, Because Apparently The Rest Of The Social Network Can Be Used For Other Things

LinkedIn is one of the few social networks that aren't about having fun. Folks use it to find jobs, get jobs, and talk to other people about their jobs. Really, it's the opposite of fun.

Now the company has released a dedicated job search app into the Play Store. This way you can cut through the various community groups and quasi-inspirational postings to get straight to the reason you dug up your old LinkedIn password in the first place.

LinkedIn Job Search lets you search for specific types of work by location, read the description, and apply. The app obviously integrates with the social network, so you can see which of your contacts works at a company and prefill your biographical information into applications.

HTC Confirms One M7 Will Not Get Any More Major Android Updates, Including 5.1

Starting with the One M7, HTC promised customers that it would deliver two years of updates. This promise came after the manufacturer abandoned its previous flagship early on, leaving the One X stranded on Android 4.2 long after 4.3 had hit devices and 4.4 became a thing.

But now, the end of the line has come for the One M7. Vice President of Product Management Mo Versi has confirmed on Twitter that the 2013 flagship will not receive Android 5.1, except for the Google Play Edition. That variant is slated to get an update sometime in April.

Boot Watch Face Celebrates Android Wear's Start Up Sequence As Its Signature Animation

How many times have you looked at your Android Wear watch while it booted and thought, "Gosh darn it, that's a rrrrreally cool animation right there!" If you love that boot sequence, you probably get a tickle every time your battery dies or your watch updates and you see it starting up again. Boot Watch Face eliminates those requirements by using the animation each time you turn your watch on. Neat!

The super zen video above shows you everything you should expect from Boot Watch Face. It's very customizable with options to pick the clock hands colors and background (there's a cool "randomize" option too), change the needles' thickness (only when the watch is on — the ambient needles are very thin for my taste), remove the seconds ticker, and speed up the animation.

Google Play Music v5.8.1836R Adds YouTube Music Videos In Search Results [APK Download]

Play Music's v5.8 rolled out last month with a slew of fixes and improvements to make the app fit better with Material Design's guidelines and provide some added functionality like biography and history for artists, and a previous song button in the collapsed notification. The app has since seen a few incremental changes, but the latest v5.8.1836R got a rare treatment from Google: an official changelog. So it must be something important, right?

Well, yes and no. If you don't subscribe to Google Play Music All Access (or Unlimited as it's being referred to recently), you may not notice any significant difference in the app.

Google Releases Quickoffice Update To Finally Push Users To Install Docs, Sheets, And Slides [APK Download]

Google has a well-earned reputation for funding multiple redundant and competing products, then unceremoniously eviscerating the ones that don't quite fit the company's vision. <cough>messaging clients, Currents, and that other one</cough>. Now, it looks like the selection of document editors is also about to undergo such a diet. Google is finally getting ready to pull the plug on Quickoffice. An update to the app now warns users that support has ended, and that it has been replaced by Docs, Sheets, and Slides.

Last summer, Google announced that development on Quickoffice had come to an end because all of its pertinent features had been integrated into the suite of Drive apps.

DISH Anywhere App Update Includes Multiple User Profiles, 'Hopper Pairing' In Lieu Of Passwords, Bill Pay, And NCAA Tourney Features

DISH Network has updated their official app with a variety of improvements and new features, making it better both as a streaming video player and as an account management console. Probably the best addition in this update is the ability to support multiple profiles for a single subscriber account, a la Netflix. Each profile will have its own favorites list and recommendations, making family sharing a lot smoother.

Also on the streaming side of things, DISH has tried to make following the NCAA men's basketball tournament simpler. While it already has its own sports section to help you separate that content from general TV, this update brings with it the ability to look through the tourney bracket to check on scores.
