There's a new Dropbox update (v2.4.5) rolling out with the option to save files to your SD card in addition to the internal storage. It's hard to believe that's not supported already, but we checked and sure enough, you can only export files to the internal storage. That changes in the new version, along with a few smaller tweaks.

New Google+ Content Restriction Options Let Page Managers Limit Who Can See Posts By Age And Location

If something goes up on the Internet, eventually someone is going to find it. But that doesn't mean you have to make it easy for them. There are certain things a Google+ page may want to say or share that isn't intended for all audiences. So Google has rolled out a few features that let people restrict who can see content based on age and country.

For clarification, these limitations apply to Google+ pages, such as the Android Police page, instead of individual profiles.

Sony Isn't Making AOSP ROMs For Phones Or Tablets, But It Might Possibly Think About It Someday Maybe

Recently there's been a rumor that Sony is planning on releasing stock AOSP ROMs (clean, Nexus-style builds of Android) for some of its high-end phones and tablets. It's easy to understand why Sony in particular might attract that kind of attention: the company has better support for aftermarket development than most, promptly releasing binaries and source code on the company's own GitHub and even some developer-grade AOSP builds. But as for consumer-ready, finished and fully supported AOSP ROMs?

Matchstick Is A $25 Streaming Stick Based On Firefox OS With Chromecast Compatibility, Currently Blowing Up On Kickstarter

Hardware Kickstarters are a risky business, but the makers of Matchstick have the hardware all nailed down. This is a streaming stick similar to the Chromeacast, but it's based on Firefox OS.

Skylanders Trap Team Brings The 'Real' Skylanders Experience To Android, But Only A Few Tablets Are Invited

Update: We've checked out the Play Store page on various AP writers' accounts, and apparently the game is now marked as incompatible with everything, including the hardware listed in the description. At this point I'm guessing that the Android app was published prematurely, and this will change on the multi-platform release date for Trap Team, which is October 5th in the United States.

There have been three Skylanders-branded games published on the Play Store so far, Battlegrounds, Cloud Patrol, and Lost Islands.
