An Emoji Bug Is Crashing The Hangouts Android App - Google Is Aware And Working On A Fix

At some point in your childhood, one of your parents may have warned you against making faces - "knock it off," they said, "or your face will freeze like that." That sound advice might not actually be true, but it seems to have a pertinent application for the latest versions of the Hangouts app on Android. Reddit user Recon2012 found an app-killing bug within Hangouts relating to the new emoji functionality in the Android keyboard.

[Hands-on] SolCalendar, A Calendar For Those Who Love Pastels And Playful Widgets

Since the ye olde days of wired-syncing on Blackberry, I've loved calendar apps. It's the app I use most on my phone, and so I'm always curious to try out new ones. SolCalendar looks especially lovely, so I gave it a trial run.

Setup

Setup was a breeze. It has on-screen instructions and immediately synced with my Google calendar without me having to log in or anything. Interestingly enough, it found a calendar to sync that I don't actually have (Nike Calendar?), but whatever.

Blizzard's Hearthstone: Heroes Of Warcraft Trading Card Game Is Coming To Android In 2014

Blizzard is a game developer and publisher - maybe you've heard of them. They're responsible for little series like Diablo, Starcraft, and World Of Warcraft, among others. The company's latest effort is an online, multiplayer trading card game called Hearthstone, currently in an invite-only beta on PC. Polygon reports that at the annual BlizzCon in Anaheim, California, the company announced that Hearthstone will be released on Android in 2014.

Hearthstone is loosely set in Blizzard's Warcraft franchise, hence the subtitle "Heroes of Warcraft." Like other collectible card games, it's being built from the ground up on the free-to-play model, though reports from early beta players indicate that it's still easy enough to get into the main game without spending money.

Light Flow Updated To Version 3.12.6, Now Supports Android 4.4, Better Handles Hangouts/SMS Integration, Has Improved Layout, And More

Have a KitKat device? If so, you've made the leap to the latest version of Android faster than most other people. That's the fun part. You've also jumped to Android 4.4 before most apps. That's the not so fun part. While older apps are generally stable and compatible, sometimes an update is in order to iron out the kinks. Thus a new version of Light Flow is now available that makes the app more compatible with Android 4.4 and the Nexus 5.

Chipotle's Mobile Ordering App For Android Is Now Available In All Locations, Lets You Pick Up Your Food Without Waiting In Line

There's an intense burrito-folding, salsa-serving war being waged out there between Chipotle, Moe's, Qdoba, and other purveyors of delicious tacos. Passions burn hotter than fresh chilies, and I'm not bold enough to throw my weight behind any of the involved establishments. But I will stick my neck out just enough to share that Chipotle's Mobile Ordering app is now open to all locations, and it's awesome.

Chipotle1 Chipotle5 Chipotle2

No, Chipotle doesn't deliver, but the company's app still saves you the effort of standing in line, shouting your order over the sound of hungry children, and asking the server what that goopy red stuff is next to other, slightly darker, goopy red stuff.

Sprint's Nexus 5 Pops Up On Amazon, Costs Just $49.99 With A New Two-Year Contract - But Is A Whopping $499.99 Without A Plan [Update: 449.99]

The Nexus 5 is a ground-breaking device. For Android fans, this is the first high-end handset that customers can buy unsubsidized and activate on all but one of the major American carriers. This isn't a big deal with AT&T and T-Mobile, as Nexus 4 buyers could already use their networks last year, but the addition of Sprint is reason to take notice. If they can do it, it stands to reason that so could Verizon.

You might just be seeing a new version of Google Maps in your Play Store downloads today - Google has updated the app from version 7.3 to 7.4. There's not a whole lot of new stuff going on inside, certainly not compared to the cavalcade of UI changes that happened earlier this year.

[New Game] Gameloft Releases Tank Battles – Customize Your Tank And Start Blowing Stuff Up

The newest title out of Gameloft is pretty self-explanatory. Tank Battles is about, you guessed it, tank battles. This game invites you to design and control your own custom war machine and fight your way through 80 top-down missions of increasing difficulty. Fighting computers not doing it for you? There's multiplayer too.

Tank Battles doesn't take a photo-realistic approach to the whole military warfare thing – it's a bit wacky and over-the-top.

Google Keyboard 2.0 Hits The Play Store, Brings Over Most Of The New Features Found On The Nexus 5

An updated version of Google Keyboard has made its way into the Play Store, taking most of the previously Nexus 5-exclusive features and expanding them out to other devices. We've covered the improvements in-depth before (and provided an APK), but in short, the swiping trail is now white, emoji are built-in, and users can swipe multiple words without having to lift up their finger. Unfortunately, some features still require KitKat, such as full-color emoji.

SwiftKey Developers Are Now Working On Adding Emoji Support And An Optional Dedicated Number Row

The SwiftKey team just rolled out a massive update to their popular Android keyboard, introducing various layouts suitable for a wide range of screen sizes. Now they're moving on to tackle other long-awaited, user-requested features. Two responses on the app's idea suggestion page show that the developers are currently working on adding support for emojis and the ability to enable a dedicated number row.

Neither of these features are particularly groundbreaking in the grand scheme of things, but that is precisely what makes the demand for them so strong.
