IK Multimedia Announces The iRig UA, Brings Guitar Effects Processing To Android 4.0+

If you're a guitarist, you know what time of year it is: it's the winter NAMM show! You're undoubtedly following your favorite brands (I certainly am) to see what new stuff comes out, and I'm sure the majority of you even have a wishlist (again, guilty). While I won't bore you with my current wants from NAMM, there's at least one thing worth talking about on the Android front: the iRig UA from IK Multimedia.

Now, you may recall that IK has already made some movement in the Android space with its Samsung-only iRig HD-A and Android-compatible iRig 2, but now the company has gone and done something really freakin' rad: built an iRig that works with Android 4.0+.

Google Starts Selling Nexus 9, Chromecast On The Play Store In New Zealand And Taiwan

It may be taking longer than many potential customers would like, but Google is still working on bringing its goods and services to interested parties around the world. Today, those in New Zealand and Taiwan will be happy to find that the Play Store now has a "Devices" section in their countries.

For now, it seems that only the Nexus 9 and the Chromecast are available in these two countries, but this is still a promising development.

[Updated] PSA: If Your Nexus 6 Has An AT&T SIM Card, Your Android Updates Are Being Withheld, But It Doesn't Actually Matter

Update: Plenty of readers are saying that they've received 5.0.1 with AT&T SIM cards. The decision to publish this post was made after my testing and another AP team member saying that he had yet to receive 5.0.1 on his device as well. It's possible that the rollout to devices with AT&T SIMs is just moving at a much slower pace than for ones with other SIMs, but regardless, there is still something unique going on with AT&T. - Shawn

Update 2: AT&T announced the 5.0.1 update on January 6, while other carriers were announcing it around the middle of December.

Samsung Galaxy Alpha On AT&T Gets OTA Update Bringing Minor Enhancements

The Galaxy Alpha is a slick piece of hardware. While the bulk of the phone remains plastic, Samsung decided to surround this handset with a metal frame, giving it a more premium look and feel than the flagship that came before it, the Galaxy S5. Now AT&T is gracing the phone with a minor over-the-air update that provides unnamed "user experience enhancements." The OTA will leave the device running software version G850AUCU1ANL1.

The update is only 17MB in size, so presumably the changes being made are relatively small. After everything is done, your phone will be still be left running Android 4.4.4.

Moto 360 Comes To The Play Store In Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Spain, And The UK

Time flies in the tech world. The Moto 360 isn't the latest hotness anymore, but I still love the one strapped to my wrist. In my mind, it remains the most visually stunning smartwatch you can buy. And when I say you, I'm referring to folks in Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Spain, and the United Kingdom—all places where the watch is now listed as available from the Play Store.

Google Play Edition phones and tablets started dropping like flies last year, and now we've reached the eventual conclusion. The HTC One M8 GPE is no longer for sale in the Play Store, and it was the last. If you want a new device with stock Android, it's going to be a Nexus.

Motorola Turbo Charger Appears On Google Play, Listed As Coming Soon

You can buy the Turbo Charger from Motorola's website for $34.99. But just like with brick and mortar stores, it's nice to have options. So if I may have everyone's attention, please direct your attention to the Play Store, where the charger is now listed as coming soon.

Screenshot 2015-01-21 at 4.32.27 PM

The Motorola Turbo Charger can plug into any device that draws its juice from a USB port, but if you pair it with something like the Nexus 6, it will recharge the thing in a fraction of the time a weaker adapter would take. Motorola says the plug will give its devices 8 more hours of battery life after just 15 minutes of charging thanks to an algorithm that manages up to 15W of power (though there's some small print to read up on).

[Update: It's Gone] Google Adds Work Chrome To The Play Store For Reasons Not Immediately Apparent

Update: Just as mysteriously as it entered the Play Store, Work Chrome has left - its listing appears to have been removed.

The idea behind Google's Android Work effort is to allow users of enterprise devices (whether BYOD or company-provided) to use the apps they're familiar with in one unified experience that keeps work and personal data separate. Work data will stay secure, with Android Work providing restrictions and controls for what can be done with the data, while personal data is readily accessible without needing to install any special third-party apps or launchers. An organization's administrators can deploy and administer apps in bulk, including internal apps, through the Play Store.
