LeEco flash sale offers a limited number of Le S3 phones for just $149, Le Pro3 for $299, starting at 1 PM Eastern/10 AM Pacific

Chinese manufacturer LeEco made a splash with its US debut, even if it wasn't a particularly promising one. Today it has its sights set squarely on the mid-range market with $100 discounts on both of the debut American phones: the Le S3 and Le Pro3. (And yes, after penning down an initial writeup for the latter, I am LeTired of this LeNaming scheme.) That brings the pricing down to just $149 and $299, respectively, assuming you can snag one of the phones once the sale starts at 10 AM Pacific time.

The Trail from designer Peter Molyneux is now available to all in the Play Store

Peter Molyneux is famous for inventing the god game genre. He's a big name in game design to this day, but his last project, Godus was something of a flop. Now, Molyneux and 22Cans have made The Trail available to everyone in the Play Store. It's been in testing for a few weeks, and the early reviews are very positive.

LastPass makes multi-device access to your passwords free

They always tell you to use long, complex passwords, and to never reuse passwords on different sites. Sure, but how are you supposed to remember all those? With a password manager like LastPass, of course. There are other options, but LastPass is one of the big names, and now the free version of the service is even better. You can access your passwords on multiple devices without upgrading to premium.

LeEco Le Pro3 hands-on: Fantastic value with some big drawbacks

As a foothold into the American smartphone market, or perhaps a first step in what LeEco sees as a long, protracted climb to the top, the Le Pro3 is an impressive device. Both it and its less powerful variant the Le S3 (yes, we've passed the Pepe Le Pew jokes around the Android Police office plenty already) are exceptional values at their mid-range price points, and the fit and finish of both phones are approaching some of the bigger players. The device meets or beats its most direct competition, the OnePlus 3, at almost every corner. On paper, the Le Pro3 is great.

Adobe releases Photoshop Sketch and Comp CC on Android, bringing on-the-go creativity to everyone

We all long for the day when the full version of Photoshop can be used on a mobile device, but for now we will have to settle for its lesser siblings. Adobe has just released Photoshop Sketch and Comp CC on Android, bringing two graphic design and creation apps to the platform, plus updating Illustrator Draw with new features.

Comp CC is a wireframe and design tool for both screens and print. The app has many different design templates, such as Android phone (1080 x 1920), Android tablets in landscape and portrait orientations, many different Apple devices, and a multitude of paper sizes.

Google Wallet's web app goes material, looks the same as the Android app

Material is the name of the game at the moment, with apps left, right, and centre adopting the new(ish) design standards and animations. While the Wallet Android app has been material for a while now, the web app has just been updated to adopt the desktop version of material design.

Generally speaking, the new web interface looks much like the Android app. There is a part to send or request money, a navigation drawer with options in it, including choosing what card to pay with and settings. There are a few things on one platform that are not on the other - Activity on the Android app and 'Cash Out' on the web app - but mostly they look the same on either, which is the aim of material design.

Google Fit v1.61 prepares for hydration logging, gym workouts, and more [APK Teardown]

There's a new update to Google Fit rolling out to [aspiring to be] healthy Android users, but there aren't any obvious signs of changes from just looking at the app. A little digging around under the hood reveals quite a bit is either in the works or just about to launch, including hydration logging and counting reps at the gym. We might also get to track climbing data soon and get notifications for activities that Fit isn't 100% confident about. Oh, and there are some more round icons because it was bound to happen eventually.

[Update: New Remix IO+ model] Jide's newest Remix IO gadget doubles as a desktop and an Android TV box, now on Kickstarter

Connecting a PC to a television isn't exactly a revolutionary idea. Ditto for a mobile device - it's harder to do now that dedicated HDMI ports are gone, but streaming screens and content via Chromecast has sort of filled the gap. Jide, the company behind the intriguing Android-as-desktop Remix OS products, is trying to take that rather niche idea mainstream with its latest hardware. The Remix IO is a gadget that's equally comfortable on your desktop or sitting inside your entertainment center. It's up on Kickstarter now for as little as $99.

Chrome now displays images centered, starting with v56 (live in Dev/Canary)

Sometimes, it's the little things that count. In Chrome 55, when you visit a direct link to an image, it was always displayed in the top left corner. This can make zooming and panning on the image difficult, as it is constantly locked to the corner of the screen. This was a minor annoyance at most, but Chrome 56 finally rectifies this issue.
