Feedly v25 Finally Refreshes The Old Gingerbread-Style Settings Menu With A Material Theme, Uses Higher Resolution Images, And More

I must confess, I've never seen the appeal of Twitch: why watch other people play video games when you can play them yourself, on the thing you're using to watch them? But enough other people seem to enjoy it that Amazon gobbled up the livestreaming service, and now something very similar has come to Android.

Lollipop is slowly, slowly making its way to all of the Nexus and Google Play Edition devices available (yes, N7 LTE owners, we hear you).

iOS Favorite RGB Express Is Out On The Play Store, Mixing Snake With Package Delivery

Imagine if someone remade the Snake game that you remember from your bomb-proof black and white Nokia phone into a puzzle title. It would look something like RGB Express, a low-key game about getting the right package to the right place.

A brand new version of Google+ began rolling out to Android users yesterday, but it didn't initially appear to do much more than tweak a few layouts and change the colors to something more theme-appropriate. During the initial teardown, we also stumbled onto the newly expanded Pinning feature, but Google beat us to the punch.

Upcoming Nexus 6 OTA (Probably 5.0.1) Will Include Trusted Face Lighting Fix

The trusted face component of Lollipop's Smart Lock system is really neat, but it's a little buggy on the Nexus 6. Shortly after launch, users noticed that the front-facing camera wasn't very good at recognizing them. According to the Google Groups thread, Google has fixed the problem in the Android code and an update is on the way.
