Reddit isn't going to check itself, so you're going to want a good app to get it done. BaconReader gained an immediate following when it was released a few years back, and that continued after it was acquired by OneLouder Apps. This popular client has just been updated to version 3.0, and there are improvements aplenty.

The headlining point is the new tablet UI with dual columns and better comment threading.

Sprint may be rolling out an update to the Galaxy S4 today, but AT&T customers are not to be left out. The company is distributing an update to version I337UCUAMF3, which is not the same as that going out to Sprint users. While it's 359MB file size is remarkably similar, it ushers in a different set of bug fixes. The update also enables two additional LTE bands and improves NFC.

Pick up that Galaxy S4 that is totally not going to explode and give it a glance. Sprint customers might just see the MF9 update begging for attention. Don't expect anything too major here, but after the download is complete, your phones should support installing apps from the Play Store onto MicroSD cards. Other niceties include HD Voice enhancements and additional wallpapers.

This is an OTA update, so there's no need to whip out the USB cable and fire up Kies.

Lots of news stuff is happening in Dropbox-land today! The company is holding its first-ever developer conference, dubbed DBX, and has already made a slew of announcements highlighting new features.

Firstly, you may have already noticed the new icon that showed up in the Play Store. Not a huge difference, but a new look is a new look – all the good stuff is hidden behind the scenes, anyway.

New icon aside, the company has announced some pretty nice things that will be available to developers moving forward: the Datastore API, Chooser, and Saver.

While of only tangential relation to Android (the Amazon Appstore is an Android app store after all), when Apple filed a lawsuit against Amazon over 2 years ago for infringing its trademark on "App Store," I got a bit perturbed. Their reasoning? Well, basically there wasn't much in the way of good legal argument for the case from day one. In fact, Apple probably knew the likelihood of a victory was low, and has been biding time hoping that Amazon would cave to a settlement demand.

This morning, SanDisk announced its newest line of microSDXC cards, the Extreme series. And they're Extreme[ly] fast. But as you and I know, manufacturer speed claims for microSD cards aren't exactly indicative of real-world performance figures (especially in smartphones), so we actually compared SanDisks's new Extreme cards to the older Ultra series. Here's what we found.

On Android, we used the A1 SD Bench app loaded on a Galaxy Note II to compare performance between a 64GB Extreme SDXC and an older (used) 64GB Ultra SDXC.

Samsung has been muddying the waters of the Galaxy brand ever since it launched, and the Galaxy S4 has been sent to new depths, with no less than three "S4" variants following the original's release by only a few months. But the Galaxy S4 Active - the sporty, tough, waterproof version of Samsung's flagship - is the first of the company's myriad extended line that actually deserves the same name as its more mainstream brother.

Heading out the door? Don't forget to grab your travel charger. Without that your device will surely die on that long flight/drive/trip to the mall. Aww, out of juice because you forgot to plug it in? That won't happen with the New Trent TravelPak Plus. This battery pack is always charged because you can actually use it as a wall adapter. Lucky for you it's on sale at Amazon right now.

Phones can explode. It's not a common occurrence, and it is more likely to happen when a device is being misused in some way, but it's still not outside the realm of possibility for a device to harm someone who was using it precisely as intended. An 18-year-old woman in Switzerland was badly burned this week when a Samsung Galaxy S3 exploded in her pants pocket. The incident took place while the woman was at work, and her boss had to tear off her pants in order to help her.

Facebook must've known what it was doing with the launch of Chat Heads, but that feature has been duplicated in everything from custom ROMs to apps attempting to clone the feature. The newest app to take note of Facebook's chat application is Floating Touch (not, it's not that floating touch), an app that makes basically any toggle, navigation shortcut, or app just a tap away.

The concept behind Floating Touch is simple: a small, customizable floating toggle resides wherever you place it on the screen.
