LG's Android UI started off as a bad copy of TouchWiz back in the Gingerbread days, but more recently it's evolved into its own thing. That thing is not always good, but it's not horrendous either. LG has just posted a video preview of the LG UX 4.0, which will probably be used on the G4, and you can suffer through it watch it below.
Before you ask, yes, this article is basically just another excuse for me to use Android Police's favorite device abbreviation, LGGP83GPE. (That's the short-lived Google Play Edition of the LG G Pad 8.3, from way back in 2013.) According to at least one Twitter user and, hey, my own tablet, the LGGP83GPE is getting its Android 5.1 update right about now.
The side navigation menu slides out over the action bar, and a floating action button hovers in the bottom right corner. Excess lines have been stripped from various areas of the app, leaving more whitespace and, well, lots of white in general.
Google's "Project Nova" MVNO ambitions have already begrudgingly been acknowedlged by Android/Chrome "czar" Sundar Pichai, but now the Telegraph is reporting the company is in talks for no-cost international roaming as a feature of the service.
The Telegraph's info comes from a source claiming that Google is currently negotiating with the owner of Three, a multinational carrier with operations in the UK, Europe, and Hong Kong. The deal would see Google MVNO customers charged no more for data, SMS, or voice services when roaming on Three's network than they would pay for service at home. While T-Mobile has introduced some forms of no-cost roaming, those plans are limited to 2G-speed data service.
Playworld Superheroes serves as an example that a game aimed for kids doesn't have to be second rate.
This immersive title gives players a chance to create their own superhero, much the way many of us have done in our childhood years. You create an imaginary costume using whatever household supplies you have lying around―whether that be a cardboard box or some stickers—and apply crayons and glue. Then you watch as the game turns your haphazard creation into a full-blown, customized suit of armor.
Playworld Superheroes gives players a full 3D environment to explore. The real world consists of a backyard with a treehouse, where you find the supplies with which you create your villain-fighting doppelganger.
There's a deal over at StackSocial you might want to take advantage of, but you'll have to hurry. The ZeroLemon SolarJuice 10000mAh Battery is on sale for $26, down from a regular price of $50. The deal on this solar-powered battery is only good for the rest of the day, though.

Carriers started sending over-the-air updates delivering Android 5.0 to the Galaxy S5 back in February, but there are still users who have yet to do the jump. Some of them have been waiting around on US Cellular, who has only just now announced that it's bringing Lollipop to Samsung's 2014 flagship.
