If you are at all into the root/ROM community, then you should probably be familiar with Open GApps, which combines the Google services that most of us need for our Android phones (i.e., the Play Store, Play Services, and other Google apps) into a collection of convenient, recovery-flashable packages. In a milestone, today Open GApps has released its first builds for Android 9 Pie. ARM packages are live, with ARM64 and x86 architectures to follow in the next few hours. Read More
The Fortnite mobile beta is still limited to Samsung users and those that have received beta invitations. Since development on the title is a constant, it's no surprise to see a new patch rolling out today. The big news is that this patch brings with it voice chat for Android.

Slightly over a year ago, I reviewed Anker's first Android-powered portable projector, the Nebula Mars. It packed a bright projector and JBL speakers into a small package, and the $599.99 price reflected that. The heavily-modified build of Android 4.4 worked decently well, but app compatibility was limited, since most apps have stopped supporting KitKat.

The excellent build quality, decent projection brightness, and newer software (based on Android 7.1) made it a great product. Read More
