Hands-On With Limelight: An Impressive SHIELD Game Streaming Clone In The Pre-Alpha Stage

Ever since we saw the initial demo of NVIDIA's game streaming technology on the SHIELD, we wondered when we could try it out with other Android devices.

[New App] RootCloak Plus Switches To Cydia Substrate To Keep Even More Apps From Detecting Root

For a root user, there's nothing more frustrating than being denied access to an app simply because they've rooted their own phone or tablet. Of course, since it's rooted, there's probably a root app for that. RootCloak has been a reliable way to get around these content and functionality blocks, and now developer DevAdvance has posted a new version that should work with even more applications.

Sprint Kills Its "One Up" Early Upgrade Program After Only 4 Months, Suggests You Join A Framily Instead

After T-Mobile introduced the Jump early upgrade program last year, the other national carriers scrambled to create their own versions.

Narcissistic Jerks Are Giving Play Store Apps 1-Star Reviews For Higher Visibility

The reviews for apps on the Play Store are important, not just for potential users, but for developers and publishers as well: scores during the first few weeks of availability can make or break a new service or game.

Google To Shut Down Schemer - Data Available For Download Until February 7

Schemer, Google's niche quasi-social network for sharing all the things you want to do in life, is being shut down. Since launching over 2 years ago, it has struggled to find a user base, new features were few and far between, and the app itself was only updated a handful of times. For those unaware of how Schemer works, the idea is pretty simple. You use it to list things you want to do, and mingle with other people who either want to do the same thing or have already done it.
