Spoticast Is Removed From The Play Store For Violating Intellectual Property And App Impersonation

Spotify still doesn't support streaming its music to Chromecast. That's bad. The third-party Spoticast app allows you to stream Spotify audio to Chromecast for free. That's good. Spoticast has been taken off the Play Store, allegedly for violating intellectual property rights and "app impersonation." That's bad. Want some frozen yogurt?

Hey everyone, this morning we received notification that #Spoticast has been removed from the Google play store. So unfortunately it seems #Spoticast has come to an end.

OUYA Introduces A $60-A-Year Subscription With Unlimited Access To (Some) Paid Games And (Some) In-App Purchases

If you could pay a flat fee for all-you-can-eat games on Android, would you? OUYA is hoping that the answer is yes, because the creators of the prototypical Android micro-console are now offering just such a service. OUYA owners can now purchase the $59.99 OUYA All-Access Pass from the website, which includes free access to "over 800" paid games and in-app purchases. OUYA claims this is an "over $2000 value," though a full list of the included apps and IAPs is not published.

Google Is Shutting Down Orkut, Its Oldest Social Network, On September 30th

Parents are supposed to love all of their children equally, but that isn't always the case. Google+ just turned three a few days ago, and my oh my how that toddler has grown. The site has picked up over half a billion users, and the Android app now looks drastically more appealing than just a few months ago (and let's not forget how it looked back when it took its first steps).

Moto G GPE Gets Updated Straight From 4.4.2 To 4.4.4, OTA Available For Download

Android 4.4.4 is just a minor security update, but what's the point of buying these Nexus and Google Play Edition devices if you can't have the latest and greatest no matter how minor the update? The Google Play Edition Moto G is finally living up to expectations with an OTA to Android 4.4.4. Just like the LG G Pad Google Play Edition (that's the LGGPGPE for "short"), this device is making the jump straight from 4.4.2 to 4.4.4.

Google+ Turns Three Years Old Today

Can you believe it's been three years since Google introduced its very own social network in private beta? We can - Android Police has published hundreds (Hell, maybe thousands) of articles about Google's social network, since it's been tightly integrated with the company's mobile, web, and search platforms. There have been a lot of big changes since then, and it still isn't the Facebook-stomping behemoth that some people hoped it might be.

Google's Android TV Emulator Is Now Available For Developers

If you couldn't make it to Google I/O, and thus couldn't get one of the first Android TV units as part of the developer swag, you can still start developing your apps for the platform's retail debut later in 2014. Google has included Android TV modules in the official Android SDK, underneath the Android L (API 20) package. That includes an emulator specifically for TV, so you should be able to build and test apps without any extra hardware.

US Cellular Updates Its Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini And Galaxy Mega Phones To 4.4.2

All the talk about Android L this week overshadows the unfortunate fact that the previous release is still on less than 15% of Android devices. This weekend US Cellular is helping in a small way, releasing KitKat to two of its Samsung phones. The US Cellular versions of the Galaxy S4 Mini and the Galaxy Mega (6.3) are both being updated to KitKat, so those with the applicable hardware should keep an eye out for the over-the-air alert.

[Deal Alert] Get $100 Off A Galaxy Tab S At Best Buy By Trading In Any Old, Working Tablet ($50 Coupon + $50 Gift Card)

It's no secret that we think the Galaxy Tab S series are the best tablets you can buy right now. They're also not cheap - Samsung's priced its iPad competitors at iPad prices, and that means shelling out at least a cool $400 if you want to get in on that Super AMOLED goodness. Best Buy, though, is willing to give you a whole Benjamin off the MSRP if you give them a little trade-in action, though.
