[Deal Alert] Official Niantic Labs-Licensed Cheero Ingress Power Cube With 12,000mAh Capacity Drops Below $30 On Amazon

Ingress players are a special breed. They're willing to take their phones out in public and walk around staring at their phones. Okay, maybe they're not all that different from other Android gamers after all. Nonetheless, their game of choice requires they go out and explore, and that means running the risk of a dead battery.

Cheero made a battery specifically for Ingress players, and it has been officially licensed by the game's creator, Niantic Labs.

[Update: Winners] We Have 25 Codes For Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance For SHIELD Android TV To Give Away Courtesy of NVIDIA

When it comes to iconic video games, there are few that stand out more than the Metal Gear series. I was instantly hooked when I first played Metal Gear Solid, and have been a huge fan of the franchise since. While Solid Snake is basically the character who makes the whole thing, I learned to appreciate and even like Raiden in Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty (after my initial irritation that the game wasn't playable as Snake). It took me a while to get there, but I finally did.

I was happy to see him get his own game as a cyborg ninja in Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, though I never actually got around to playing that title on a traditional console.

Citrix Releases New GoToMeeting Beta App, Goes Back In Time To Call it v2.0

The GoToMeeting Android app is not the most attractive app out there, but it gets the job done most of the time. It hasn't been updated with new UI features for a long time, and tends to get buggy with new Android releases (see: current issues with Marshmallow Bluetooth). Citrix is working on a revamp, though, and you can try it right now with the GoToMeeting v2.0 beta. Never mind that the current app is already on v5.3.

Former Google App Sky Map Gets Its First Update Since 2011

You'd be forgiven for forgetting that Google used to have an app called Sky Maps on the Play Store. As the title points to, it was a nice digital planetarium that you could carry around your pocket back in the Froyo and Gingerbread days of Android. Like many similar apps, Sky Map used your location and the direction you were pointing your phone at to map the space elements around you, from stars to planets to constellations and more. In January 2012, Google open sourced Sky Map, but development had ceased a while before, in August of 2011.

It looks like someone at the Sky Map Devs team has found the lost github repository and decided to give the app a breath of life.

BlackBerry PRIV's Apps Get Updated: Slow Motion Video Capture, Improved Keyboard, Separate Work And Personal Apps In The Launcher

If you're one of the users who have committed to BlackBerry's first foray into Android with the PRIV, you'll be happy to know that the company isn't forgetting its early adopters or leaving them behind. It's been releasing security patches for its phones and now it's updating some of the preloaded apps on the PRIV: the camera, keyboard, and launcher.

The BlackBerry Camera app is adding a mode to capture slow motion video at 120fps (which can be played back at 30fps), but without any audio. The Keyboard app is getting plenty of enhancements to its prediction and usability, including learning from your social accounts and email, faster word deletion, and improvements to cursor control.

GoPro Acquires Popular iOS Video Editing Apps Replay And Splice, Plans To Launch Android Versions Later This Year

These days, GoPro is the king of the hill for action and aerial photography. Sure, you could wrap some tape around your phone and send it up on a quadcopter or toss it into a sandwich bag and hope it doesn't spring a leak at the bottom of the pool, but those are terrible ideas—seriously, don't try them. Since you won't be putting your phone (or tablet) through near certain destruction, why not use it instead to edit those great videos? GoPro announced that it has acquired popular mobile video editing apps Replay and Splice. Both apps are currently iOS exclusives, but the company has plans to bring them to Android later this year.

Fahrenheit: Indigo Prophecy, An Innovative PS2-Era Adventure Game, Gets A Remastered Release On The Play Store

Back in 2005, video games really wanted to be movies. "Cinematic" was the buzzword of the day, though it usually translated to "a whole lot of cutscenes." Games still haven't quite gotten over their movie crush, but one of the distinct styles of games to emerge from that era was the narrative-focused 3D adventure. These games mixed the traditional inventory puzzles and story-focused dialogue of adventure games with big-budget production and quick-time controls. The works of director David Cage, including games like Heavy Rain and Beyond: Two Souls, are the primary examples of the genre.

Samsung's New Galaxy S7 Commercials Are Funny, Smart, And Star-Studded

Samsung's commercials are often a mixed bag. Sometimes they stumble on a smart idea and execute it well, other times they get stuck repeating themselves and seeming rather petty about it. Luckily, this latest set of commercials for the Galaxy S7 is in the former category. Because if you're going to suffer through these ads for the next few months, they better be good ones, right?

The first commercial, Why? debuted at the Oscars on Sunday and shows a number of celebrities and people asking why can't their phones have a specific feature. Among them is Wesley Snipes who wants to store all of his movies, Lil' Wayne who'd rather seem reckless pouring champagne on his phone but know it'll survive, James Harden who's grumpy for his late cameo appearance in the video, Doc Rivers who only cares about pick and roll defense, and finally William H.

[Update: South Korea, Japan] Chromecast 2015 And Chromecast Audio Launch In Australia And New Zealand For $59 AUD And $69 NZD Respectively

We all love the Chromecast thanks to its cheap price and almost endless potential to turn any TV into a smart streaming machine.

Now these new gadgets are available for purchase in the southern part of our planet: Australia and New Zealand.

In Australia, the Chromecast 2015 and Chromecast Audio will be priced at $59 AUD (approx.
