Motorola Touchless Control v4.1 Doesn't Need To Be Unlocked For Voice Commands, Can Listen For Your PIN, And More

A big update is rolling out for Motorola's Touchless Control app that should alleviate some of the frustrations users have had with its functionality. Primarily, voice commands no longer require you to unlock your phone first in order to work. Yet for safety reasons, emails, texts, contacts, and other private information remain protected behind a lock screen. Speaking of which, users can now unlock their Moto X by saying their PIN out loud (behavior, while cool, I would be very hesitant to recommend).

Skype 4.5 Introduces A Floating Picture-In-Picture View For Android Tablets And Other Enhancements

It's 2013, and chances are that someone has asked you to make a Skype video chat at some point or another. This isn't too all-consuming on PCs, where a user can fire up their webcam and tuck the Skype client away in the corner. Anyone using an Android device, on the other hand, has had to devote the entire screen to the conversation. But thanks to the latest Skype update, many of us will be freed from the burden of giving a video chat our undivided attention, as we will now have the ability to tuck the entire session away into the corner.

Google Removes Artificial 300 Millisecond Tap Delay On Mobile-Optimized Sites In Chrome 32 Beta

Did you know that the web browser on your phone or tablet waits three tenths of a second after you tap something to actually perform that action? You did if you're a web developer - it's a de-facto standard for mobile browsers, a built-in delay for the double-tap zoom function. But if you're on the newest Chrome beta, you won't see the delay, at least on mobile sites.

Why is this?

[New Game] Lightbringers: Saviors Of Raia Brings Another Wave Of Co-Op 4-Player Hack And Slash Action To Android

From the company that brought us Nun Attack and the action-packed followed-up Nun Attack: Run & Gun comes Lightbringer: Saviors of Raia, an entirely different property that bears zero resemblance to the aforementioned titles. This new IP is decidedly less casual, and its 4-player multiplayer hack and slash gameplay might just be enough to keep Diablo fans satisfied when they're away from their computers.

[New Game] HandyGames Releases Ninja Hero Cats, A Tale Of Fierce Armed Felines Saving The World

Game developer HandyGames has released a collection of titles ranging from topics as diverse as fending off Nazis in World War 2 to solving puzzles as a happy Viking to protecting your farm from aliens. If there's one thing each of these games has in common, it's wackiness. So when I say that the company's next game centers around cats, know that this won't be a Nintendogs-style experience. No, these are ninja cats.
