Update 8/21/14: Google today made the feature official by announcing it on the Inside Search blog. Head over to Search -> Settings -> Voice -> Languages to pick your languages.
Anyone who uses more than one language on a regular basis has probably felt some degree of annoyance with Google's voice search system on Android. You have to dig way into the settings to change the language, and there's no way to mix and match. Read More
Everything stored on computers takes up data (this is going somewhere, I promise). We humans, being the social creatures that we are, feel compelled to share things with others. This biological inclination didn't go away with our relatively new obsession with digital things, so we now find ourselves regularly wrestling with the issue of getting data that's stored on one of our devices onto someone else's. WeTransfer and its new Android app can help with that. Read More
I don't know about you, but I could never get the hang of Thursdays. If you are similarly impaired, at least you can take comfort in these sales, which are quite good today. Have a look.
There are innumerable calendar apps in Google Play, but one of the real standouts is Sunrise Calendar. This app has a clean interface, a solid widget, and support for plugins. However, it only worked with Google and iCloud accounts at launch. Now you can add Exchange to that list.
Update 8/21/14: Following Amazon's lead, the same $0.99 sale is now live on the Play Store.
The Amazon Appstore seems to be flooding with deals lately, giving us more and more reasons to use it (or at least consider installing it next to the Play Store). After the massive $100 apps and games that went free ten days ago, today's deals affect all of Cartoon Network's games - well, all but one - and discount them to $0.99. Read More
Listen up if you're particularly fond of classic 2D platformers, old-school fighters, or general nostalgia. SNK Playmore is currently offering all of its paid games for just 99 cents apiece. For one title, The Rhythm of Fighters, this is the usual price. For the nine other releases available, this is a discount of roughly 75%, as they usually go for around $3.99. That means you could go through the list and get the full collection for the same amount three games would usually cost. Read More
Pricing changes don't usually happen this fast in the wireless industry. It seems like T-Mobile and Sprint both have multiple contingencies in place to attack one another based on what goes down each day. Following T-Mobile's announcement of the free LTE upgrade for one year, Sprint has revealed a new unlimited data plan that's only $60 per month. There are a few caveats, though.
T-Mobile has really been stepping up the rhetoric against Sprint since the backroom acquisition deal allegedly fell through a few weeks ago. T-Mobile's latest promotion takes direct aim at the Now Network, but it targets the other big carriers too. Starting next week, if you bring a friend over to T-Mobile on a Simple Choice plan, you and they both get a free upgrade to unlimited LTE for one year. Also, there will be awkward dancing, if T-Mobile's promo image is to be believed. Read More
I'm going to say some things about Pac-Man Friends out of the gate that will make some of you want nothing to do with Pac-Man or his pals. This game is free-to-play, and it contains in-app purchases. Three cherries cost 99 cents, a bundle of hearts go for $4.99, so on and so forth. But if you're skilled enough to get by without these power-ups, you don't have to spend any money to get enjoyment out of this experience. Read More
Still riding high from the success of the LG G3, the Korean OEM is looking to capture some of the budget market with a pair of low-cost 3G phones. The LG L Fino and L Bello have several of the features that made the LG G3 great with much more modest specs.
