I imagine for the folks at NASA, the Moon has become kind of boring. The organization has been launching stuff at that floating rock since the 60s. It has sent rockets, people, and unmanned probes. And that doesn't even count the work others around the world have contributed to our understanding on the satellite. People have been staring up at that thing for as long as we've been a species.
Needless to say, quite a bit of information about the Moon has surfaced in that time.
If a mountain is infested with Yetis, you should probably ski someplace else. Even one Yeti is probably too many. Still, everyone is hitting the slopes in Skiing Yeti Mountain. This game has hundreds of courses to tear up and an undisclosed number of Yetis to avoid.
There are certain things that should be done on a smartwatch, and certain things that should not. Ever. Under any circumstances. Yet, here we are with a Gmail client for Android Wear from the developer of AIDE. I guess we should take a look at it.
From now on, you can add Wunderlist to the myriad services available for integration in Sunrise Calendar. Any tasks that have a date associated with them will appear alongside any other all-day events in your calendar. This is in line with Sunrise's philosophy that they "always pair what you need to do with a time when you’ll be doing it."
Once you have connected Wunderlist, it will work just as described.
Motorola hasn't exactly been hitting it out of the park with cameras as of late. The 2014 Moto X offered a minor improvement over the 2013 model, but it's still put to shame by other flagships. At least the camera app is in the Play Store so it can be updated with new features, just like it is today.
Do you hate advertising, and by extension, the vast majority of free content on the planet? Do you spend hours defending your decision to block ads on the Internet, television, video games, apps, and in real life via an intricate system of automatic blinders? Then the ever-growing crop of Android web browsers has a new entry just for you. This one comes from AdBlock Plus, probably the most recognizable name in browser-based advertisement blocking.
Telegram is a secure messaging app that a lot of people like more than WhatsApp, not that it really matters what's objectively better than the other. Messaging apps are only useful if other people are using them. Telegram does okay, though, and maybe today's update will drive adoption even more. It has stickers! Stickers!
After teasing the Material redesign of AllCast a couple of weeks ago, Koushik Dutta has finally made the updated 2.0 version available for everyone to install, enjoy, admire, and swoon over. And if you're wondering why it looks so good, it's because our own Liam Spradlin had a hand (mouse click?) in giving the app its fresh coat of paint and that is all you need to know. Article over. Nothing left to say.
Fans of Mojang's incredibly popular game franchise, Minecraft, will soon have a better option for manipulating the Android version of the game. Mobile controller support will finally be added in an update that will be arriving "soon". This news comes via Twitter from Mojang developer Tommaso Checchi.
Fortunately we'll soon raze the entire UI to the ground, so that we'll be able to have proper controller support among other things :)
There's a new streaming music service in town, and people seem excited about this one. The UK-based MixRadio has the customary umpteen million tracks available, but it tries to be more personal than services like Pandora. It also seems a little less restrictive in what you can do with the free streaming music.
