Email can be overwhelming, so it's useful to get someone else to manage it for you. Failing that, a computer should be able to take over the task. Google's Inbox has been doing this for a while now, with cool features like bundles, smart replies, digests and snoozing until later. A new feature, Templates, has just appeared in the web version of Inbox, which makes email even easier.
Templates are basically preset text snippets that can be inserted into emails. Read More
Whoa, is Amazon on a roll these last few weeks or what! The company has been announcing new hardware, new services, improving existing offers, and more, all within the span of a couple of months. Today, it's Prime Photos' time, one of the free benefits that come with an Amazon Prime subscription. The service is getting a significant revamp and plenty of new options.
First, there's Family Vault which gives any Prime member the possibility to share their Photos perk with up to 5 family members. This means that the whole family can upload its photos manually (or they can set the app to automatically upload all photos) to the same Prime account. Read More
Neither of these deals is valid in the US, Canada, and many countries around the world. There. That should help you skip reading this post altogether. But if you're still around, then you probably live in one of the few countries where these $0.10 deals have been frequent in the past few months and you already know the drill. We're talking about 0.10 EUR in France, Italy, Spain, and Germany, GBP 0.10 in the UK, RUB 10 in Russia, and AUD 0.20 in Australia. Other countries are probably unaffected, but it won't hurt to check.
With that out of the way, the two pieces of software you can buy are SKRWT and Neo Monsters. Read More
One of the most useful features of Android N is the improved notifications handling: notifications coming from the same app are bundled together and can be unbundled and dealt with individually, and there's direct reply support to quickly answer a message without opening the app.
Not a lot of apps have added support for both of these features, but now Yahoo Mail is joining this elite group. Thanks to a new update, Yahoo's mailing app lets you send direct replies to emails from the notification, and it bundles notifications together for less redundancy and clutter in the drop-down.

Some months ago, Google looked to be rolling out a new interface for notifications in the Google+ app. No sooner did we report on it than Google removed the new notifications with a server-side switch. Google giveth, and Google taketh away. Today, Google giveth. The new G+ notifications appear to be rolling out for real. Read More

We're not really sure what the story is here. Lara Croft: Guardian of Light has been out since 2010 on iOS, XBox 360, PS3, and PCs, and according to RedmondPie, it was even released on Android in July of 2012. But the Play Store listing that's mentioned in that article, which is this link, doesn't appear to be live anymore. RedmondPie noted back in 2012 that the game was a Sony Ericsson exclusive, but 4 years is a really long time for an exclusive on a game title. Maybe Square Enix forgot to release it for other devices, maybe Sony Ericsson really did have a long-term exclusive deal on it, or maybe the game was pulled from the Play Store a while ago and forgotten until today.

The NVIDIA SHIELD is the premier Android TV device currently on the market, but what really sets it apart is the games NVIDIA are able to secure as exclusives on Android (or sometimes just straight-up AAA titles). The next one of these games to come to the SHIELD is Kingdom: New Lands, a kingdom-building game in a cool, cute pixel-art graphical style. Read More
Chrome Remote Desktop is a rather obscure Google product, but that doesn't mean it's not useful. Once the desktop application is installed, you can control it from any Android device, iOS device, or computer (with Chrome). In my testing, it actually works extremely well, often with a lower latency than popular remote access applications like TeamViewer.
The latest update, Chrome Remote Desktop 53, finally brings remote sound support. Read More
