As we get closer and closer to the Annual Android Handset Giving Period commonly known by many as Christmas, another week of Android news grows to a close. This week has brought a number of new stories, including reports that YouTube are delaying their streaming music service, the news that Chrome apps could be coming to Android as early as January and more information about Google’s mysterious barges that first hit our headlines last month. Let’s take a look!
Today not only marks the beginning of the final month of 2013 and the run up to a holiday season that is likely to award many new Android phones to loved ones, but also the culmination of another week of Android news. This week we’ve seen the continuing rollout of Android 4.4 and more. Let’s take a look! (more…)
In a fairly quiet week for Android news, we say hello to a new phone [variant] but goodbye to a beloved classic. This week has seen Google end sales of its own flagship Nexus 4 handset while developers can now get their hands on a special edition of the Moto X. Let’s jump in and take a look! (more…)
When the Chromecast was announced last week, I got very excited about it and received many questions on Twitter from people who knew I already owned an Android TV Stick — an iMito MX1 to be precise. They were either wondering about the difference between the devices, either questioning my enthusiasm towards it given that I already have something similar.
After all, it’s easy to be confused. Both serve as an HDMI extension to your TV that makes it a lot smarter than it is, and both seem to play well with Android devices. So what exactly is the difference, and which one should you buy? Read on for the explanation.
If I’m not playing games or browsing through Reddit on my tablet, I’m probably watching videos on it — can you blame me? Google’s Nexus 7 is perfectly sized to allow you to easily catch up with the latest and greatest videos that YouTube has to offer, whether I’m on the couch, lying in bed or in the kitchen. I subscribe to scores on channels to get my fix, and I’m always on the lookout for new content to enjoy. I recently found a great app for this that I can’t believe I didn’t stumble upon sooner: ShowYou.
Designed to bring together all the videos your friends and family share with you, along with lots more content to discover, ShowYou is sure to keep you entertained wherever you can get an internet connection. The well designed app also makes it easy to share what you’re watching and find new content to pique your interest, and is available for free in the Play Store. Grab some popcorn as we take a look at how ShowYou works.
It’s been an interesting week. Today we celebrate World Health Day and the culmination of a week that began with April Fools –and, oh boy did Google bring it this year! From Google Nose to Facebook Home, let’s take a look at what’s been going on this week in the big wide world of Android. (more…)
If you haven’t heard of Dude Perfect, it definitely time you checked them out. Essentially they are a excited rabble of YouTubers who pull off some truly incredible basketball trick shots. Have a look at their YouTube channel but be sure to come back, okay?
Back? Great! The Dudes thought it high time to release an official mobile game based on their bodacious basketballing exploits. Dude Perfect, available on both Android and iOS, is the result, and it’s a neat little game that fans of titles like Angry Birds should be flocking to.
Essentially it’s your turn to complete some genuinely awesome basketball shots in a variety of diverse locations. But is it actually ‘perfect’? Read on for my analysis…
