I've tried a lot of different password managers over the years (and even covered using KeePass and Dropbox to stay in sync on Android as one of my first posts on Android Police – nostalgic!) but switched to LastPass many months ago. I find it to be one of the easiest cross-compatible methods of keeping my passwords in sync across all of my devices. The one downside, however, is that the Android app (and web UI for that matter), is pretty hideous. Read More
Perhaps you've got a new Nexus 5 speeding toward your door or already in your hands. Well, you're going to need some apps to fill it up, right? It just so happens we've found some stuff on sale. Sometimes life is convenient like that.
Now that KitKat is finally out in the world, we're finding all sorts of little tweaks that make the new OS nicer to use. Google didn't give this particular feature a big headline on the Android site, but maybe it should have. Android 4.4 now lets you access your notifications from any full-screen app. This is a feature Samsung has included in TouchWiz for a while, so it's not entirely new to the world of Android.

Comcast's XFINITY app has undergone a name change with its latest update, and it now only answers when referred to as XFINITY TV Go. Does the latest version, in fact, make TV go? If we're referring to live content, then the answer's yes. Comcast customers with an Android device or two lying around can now stream the news, sports, kids shows, and other content live.
Live streaming works on both cellular and Wi-Fi data, which means you are not tied to your own home network as was the case with some apps in the past. Read More
If you're still rocking a DROID RAZR M on Verizon, get ready for a little OTA update action. This phone may be last year's news, but it's not forgotten. Well, at least not completely. No, it's not getting an update to 4.2 (let alone something newer). Instead, this is mostly a maintenance update.
When you need to get access to a remote computer quickly, TeamViewer is a popular solution. The app has long had a solid feature set, but the newly released update has a lot more goodies. And of course, it's still free for personal use.
It's a good time to be a Samsung owner, at least if you've got some recent hardware. After beginning an extensive campaign of Android 4.3 updates for US models of the Galaxy SIII, S4, and Note II (likely motivated by the Galaxy Gear compatibility it provides), Samsung is now starting to update the massively popular international SIII model, the GT-I9300. According to SamMobile, Irish S III owners on Vodafone are the first to get the update, with no other regions reporting in at the moment. Read More
It's not just HTC's latest and greatest that's getting some update love these days. The international HTC One SV is finally getting that rumored update to Android 4.2.2, and it's packing Sense 5.0. It's not a small update, so make sure you've got some WiFi handy.
The Galaxy S4 Zoom is what you get if you hold a Galaxy S4 in one hand, a digital camera in the other, and slam them together. Samsung unveiled the device early in the summer, and while it didn't take long to arrive in other areas of the world, it's only just now coming to the US. Come November 8th, AT&T will become the first camera to offer the Galaxy S4 Zoom on this side of the pond. Read More
Frequent fliers breathed a sigh of relief when the FAA ruled that most electronics could be used from takeoff to landing, and Amazon was a big part of that decision. To celebrate they're having a one day sale on two 7-inch Kindle models, the new Kindle Fire HDX and the year-old Fire HD. Enter the code "ThnksFAA" (note spelling) at checkout and you can take 15% off the regular price. Read More
