[APK Teardown] Chromecast v1.8 Includes Support For Guest Mode, But It Might Not Be Ready For Action

Back at Google I/O 2014, we learned about a pretty neat feature called Backdrop that gives your Chromecast a little more pizazz with localized weather, news, and photos. It turned out to be a bit of a tease, because Google waited until earlier today to actually enable it through an update to the Chromecast app for our phones. During the same presentation, another feature called "Guest Mode" was announced promising to allow visitors to cast from their devices to a Chromecast in the same room without being on the same Wi-Fi network.

The first thing HTC announced at its Double Exposure event today wasn't new hardware. No, the company was very eager to share its new software, which it has coined the EYE Experience. This term encapsulates a full range of features all aimed at making your HTC phone a better tool for taking photos.

Let's run through the features. One addition is an Auto-Selfie (ignore the name and bear with me here) function that will automatically take a photo with the front-facing camera after users have framed the shot and held the phone still for two seconds.

HTC Announces Its Mobile Sports Camera, the 'HTC RE,' With WiFi, Bluetooth, And A 16MP Sensor

HTC isn't the first company you think of when you think about cameras. But they would very much like to be, and to that end, they've announced the HTC RE. As expected, this is a wireless "sports camera," along the same lines as products from GoPro, Sony, and any number would-be competitors.

The most striking thing about the RE is its design. The small 96.7x26.5mm camera is shaped roughly like a periscope (or an inhaler), allegedly for a better grip.
