Sonos 5.2 Hits The Play Store With Multi-Account Support, PLAYBAR Sound Enhancements, Search Improvements, And More

The latest version of the Sonos Android app makes life easier for families and roommates alike. Instead of juggling a single login, users can now hop around between multiple accounts. The software is capable of handling up to 32, large enough to stick in the lounge of a college dorm. Each account has its own nickname and custom music experience.

We first saw multi-account support rolled into the beta early last month, and it wasn't alone.

5.2 also brings PLAYBAR sound enhancements. People who have purchased the soundbar should notice an improved soundstage and better balance regardless of volume levels.

People who don't own a PLAYBAR speaker may still be glad to see improvements in the search experience that makes it easier to pull up music from a variety of sources.

The Nexus 6 Comes To Mexico Next Week Via Motorola.com.mx, 32GB Model Will Sell For 9,999 Pesos

Our readers in Mexico probably don't have a lot of sympathy for those of us still ticked that we can't grab a Nexus 6 from the Play Store or Motorola itself. But starting next week they'll have the chance to get their own... or more likely, be just as pissed at Google's lack of foresight for another major phone launch. Google Mexico just posted the Nexus 6's Mexico launch announcement on Google+.

Here's the skivvy: Mexican Android fans will be able to order the Nexus 6 from Motorola.com.mx (not the Play Store, apparently) starting next week. The price for the 32GB Cloud White model will be 9,999 pesos, approximately $710 at the current exchange rate.

Amazon Fire HD Kids Lightning Review: Did Amazon Just Make The Best Android Tablet For Kids?

A few weeks ago, Ryan and I tag teamed the Kindle Fire HD 6 and 7 in a review that left us both pretty dang impressed with what Amazon has cooked up in its newest budget-friendly tablets. Since then, I've been playing with the Fire HD Kids (6" - $149; 7" - $159), Amazon's attempt at entering the kids' tablet market. I'm using the six-inch model for this review, but the tablet is also available in a seven-inch model. Like the "regular" HD 6 and 7, the tablets are virtually identical, save for the size. The software is the same on both devices.

T-Mobile Postpones LTE Nexus 9 Launch With No New ETA

Well, it's not really a surprise, but T-Mobile has backed out of its commitment to start selling the LTE-equipped Nexus 9 in early December (which is now). A leaked internal communication simply says the launch has been postponed and there is no new window.

Web Version Of Google+ Now Lets You Pin Posts To The Top Of Your Profile Or Page

Earlier this year, Google+ community managers gained the ability to pin posts to the top of a page, useful during those times when you want visitors to see something in particular the first time they arrive. The thing is, community pages aren't the only ones that could benefit from such a feature. So the capability is now rolling out for regular profiles and pages as well. General users can now pin posts using the web version Google+ from their PC.

To pin, click on the drop down menu at the top of a public post. The option should be the first one on the list.

Xposed GEL Settings Gets A Material Makeover, Automatically Hides Homescreen Apps In The Drawer In Version 2.2

Most Xposed modules add a simple change or tweak one or two settings. The Xposed GEL Settings module, colloquially known as XGELS, is a bit more ambitious. This tool for customizing the default Google Experience Launcher keeps adding new features every few months, and the latest actually adds something that isn't available in erstwhile competitors like Nova or Apex. You can download it on the Play Store now, though you'll need root and the Xposed Framework to run it.

First of all, XGELS has been given a Material Design makeover, though at the moment this is mostly apparent in the settings itself (your primary interaction with the module).

The World Of Square Enix's Dragon Quest III Is Now Open To Android Gamers Who Can Spare $9.99 For The Journey

The Dragon Quest series may be larger in Japan than overseas, but it has accumulated no shortage of fans and acclaim over the years. Square Enix has ported several entries to Android, with RPG forebearers like Dragon Quest I & II sitting on the company's Google Play listing alongside the likes of IV and VIII. Dragon Quest III is the latest game in the franchise to grace our mobile platform.

DragonQuest1 DragonQuest2 DragonQuest3

Dragon Quest III launched in Japan in the late 80s, came to the US as Dragon Warrior III in the early 90s, and introduced many gameplay elements that have since entrenched themselves in the genre, such as its class system and open structure.

Make Imaginary Internet Money With Frantic Tapping In Noodlecake's Oddly Addictive Bitcoin Billionaire

Advanced 3D graphics! Dual-stick controls! A deep, engaging story! Bitcoin Billionaire from Noodlecake Studios has none of those. Yet, it's still somehow addictive and... I don't know if I'd say fun, but something resembling a type of fun.

Runtastic Wants To Whip That Ass Into Shape With Its Newest App, Butt Trainer

Runtastic has all sorts of apps (many of which have absolutely nothing to do with running) – everything from cycling, to heart rate monitoring, to abs, and so much more. Its newest app, however, really wants to help users get their ass in shape... literally. It's called Butt Trainer, and well, the name speaks for itself. (For the record, I suggested "RuntASStic," but they didn't go for it.)

If you've used any of Runtastic's other training apps – like Six Pack Abs, for example – then you're already familiar with how Butt Trainer works. It's loaded with easy-to-follow asscercises, all of which are led by a virtual trainer that shows how to execute each move correctly.

AT&T's Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom Finally Gets A KitKat OTA Update

Remember last night, when we were excited about the Galaxy S5 getting its Android 5.0 update already, at least in Poland? That was nice. Let's try to hang on to that warm, comforting feeling while we face this cold fact: a combination of lowered expectations for non-flagship devices and good old US carrier apathy means many Android owners won't be so lucky. For example, the Galaxy S4 Zoom on AT&T is just now getting its update to Android 4.4, more than a year after the release of both KitKat and the phone itself.

But enough whining. If you happen to have Samsung's odd phone-camera hybrid, perhaps as a result of some of the impressive discounts AT&T has added to the device, an over-the-air update is headed your way now.
