AirDroid Adds Automatic Local Network Photo Backup To Its Bag Of Tricks

Anyone who's been hanging around Android Police knows that AirDroid is one of our very favorite tools. And a big part of what makes it so great is that the developers are constantly improving both the core file transfer functions and adding brand new stuff more or less constantly. The latest additional goodie is a photo backup system, more or less like the ones featured in Dropbox or Google Drive and their imitators, but minus the online cloud storage element.

Android's Stock Dialer App Is Hiding An Easter Egg From 'The IT Crowd'

Today is Easter Sunday in many countries, and though humble tech bloggers don't really get fancy luxuries like "vacations" or "religious holidays" or "time to sleep," it seems appropriate to point out an Android Easter egg that's apparently been lying in wait for quite a while. The folks at Ausdroid spotted this one, a simple nod to British sitcom The IT Crowd (also known as "that show that's kind of like The Big Bang Theory without all the sucking").

[APK Download] YouTube Music Version 1.16 Adds A 'More From...' Button To The Watch Page And A Wi-Fi Only Streaming Video Option

YouTube Music, the app built specifically for the YouTube Red music subscription service, is still somewhat in its infancy. There's plenty of room for improvement, and version 1.16 adds a couple of small but notable changes to better the listening experience. First, the standard Watch page (the one with the actual video on it) now has a "More from..." button, with the ellipses replaced with the relevant artist for each video. It allows users to find more music from that specific artist. Makes sense. To see the button you may need to expand the viewer in portrait mode.

TinyCam Monitor Adds Support For Android N's Multi-Window Mode, Plus New Options and More In Version 6.6

Web-accessible cameras don't need much in terms of bells and whistles, but that doesn't mean you can't have them all the same. That seems to be the development direction behind TinyCam, one of the most popular IP camera viewers on the Play Store. The latest update adds some API strings that make it more compatible with the experimental multi-window mode everyone's raving about in Android N. That should be extremely handy for watching your front door and browsing Android Police at the same time.

What's Up With AT&T, Verizon, John Legere, And Netflix Throttling? A Quick Explainer

In the past day or two, you probably heard something along the lines of: "AT&T and Verizon are "throttling" Netflix." Originally, John Legere, CEO of T-Mobile, made a claim that led to such statements. Many outlets ran with the story, but AT&T and Verizon quickly and flatly denied any claim of throttling Netflix content - and AT&T and Verizon aren't exactly likely to lie about something like that in a public statement. This seemingly put Legere in a corner: did John have bad information? Well, it turns out the situation is a little more complex than all that, and while what John Legere said was technically true, it doesn't exactly ring that way in the practical sense.

Google Bumps Chromecast App To v1.14 With Promised 'Google Cast' Rebrand And Better Support For Some Cast-Enabled Devices [APK Download]

The Chromecast was just the start of Google's growing list of Cast-enabled devices, so it came as little surprise when Google announced the Chromecast app would be taking on a more inclusive name. It's now Google Cast in v1.14, and you can grab it from APK Mirror. It also looks like the app shows your other Cast devices, which would make sense given the name change.

Netflix Announces Its Mobile Data Saver Feature, Will Make It Available To Everyone In May

Netflix has been testing a mobile data saver option in its settings to limit the app's bandwidth usage on a data connection. We spotted it a couple of weeks ago, but as it turns out, the feature had been intermittently showing up for many users before that. Now the company is ready to make the option official.

Netflix explained on its blog that it's been testing the data saver and hasn't noticed any major issues with it. The feature caps the bitrate over mobile networks to 600kbps, which should be enough for a good stream quality and resolution on mobile devices, while not causing any excessive data usage.

That Onewheel Electric Skateboard-Unicycle-Thing Has An Android App Now

The Onewheel typifies a brand new generation of personal transportation devices. They're the kind that make you go "huh, that's kind of interesting," then you look at a limited specification sheet and a sky-high price tag and decide to stick to your rusty bicycle. (It costs $1500 for the base model, if you're wondering.) But apparently there's something more than excess and capacitors built into that thing, because now it has an official Android app for management.
