“Powered By Android” Boot Screen Required By Google (Rumor)

Edwin Kee March 31, 2014

“Powered By Android” Boot Screen Required By Google (Rumor)It goes without saying that Google’s Android has a wider adoption rate compared to any other smartphone platform in the market at the moment, but how many folks out there are fully aware that they are making use of Google’s mobile operating system? I am quite sure that you who are more technically proficient would have come across some friends or family who claim that they are using a “Galaxy” operating system, or in some other cases, a “DROID”. Google might be looking into increasing the overall awareness of Android by requiring devices with Play Store access to feature the words “Powered by Android” as the device boots up.

    Tyler Lee March 31, 2014

    Google Moves To Remove All Erotic Content From Play StoreWhile the Google Play app store isn’t exactly chock full of pornographic apps, there are some apps like the one pictured above that will deliver photos of sexy girls onto your phone, which some users might choose to use for wallpapers or other purposes.

    Those photos aren’t exactly explicit but it seems that in an effort to make the Google Play Store safe and open to people of all ages, Google has recently updated their Developer Program policies which will essentially ban apps like the one pictured above. (more…)

    Pushbullet Mirrors Notifications From Android Phone To Your Computer

    We have all wished for it at some point, that smartphones have the ability to automatically send notifications to our computers while we’re either too busy to too lazy to pick them up. There are a few apps out there that can make this happen, but Pushbullet takes it to a whole new level. Not only does it mirror notifications from an Android phone to the computer, as soon as they pop up on the smartphone, but it also lets users send files, links, lists, text and maps from the computer to the phone, this works the other way around as well.

    Edwin Kee March 18, 2014

    Skype 4.7 For Android Runs All Day Long Without Massive Battery DrainWhen it comes to apps and software, new releases as well as periodic updates make plenty of sense, and changes that cannot be seen on top and yet make a stark difference to the final product are normally the best ones. Skype 4.7 for Android has been designed in such a way by the Skype for Android team, so much so that the aggressive battery savings that comes with the latest version of the app would allow users to have Skype running in the background without affecting battery life noticeably.

    Google Forcing Android OEMs To Use Latest Version Of Android [Rumor]

    Adnan Farooqui February 11, 2014

    Google Forcing Android OEMs To Use Latest Version Of Android [Rumor]

    Fragmentation is a big issue on Android. A vast majority of Android powered devices around the globe are running firmware versions that have long been outdated. Android 4.4 KitKat, which was released late last year and happens to be the latest iteration, only powers a minute fraction of all devices globally. In order to curb the issue of fragmentation, Google is rumored to be leaning on OEMs to use latest version of Android in their devices, if they want them to receive access to the Google Play Store and Google Apps.

    Wozniak’s “Apple Should Make Android” Comment Was Meant As A Joke

    Tyler Lee February 11, 2014

    Wozniaks Apple Should Make Android Comment Was Meant As A JokeJust the other day, Apple’s co-founder, Steve Wozniak, made a statement in which he stated that Apple making Android devices was not such a bad idea. Wozniak has made some pretty interesting statements over the years, many of which have caused a great deal of debate and discussion, but apparently this was one comment that he felt that might have been taken a bit too literally as it was meant to be more of a joke as opposed to an actual suggestion. According to Gina Smith, the co-writer of Steve Wozniak’s biography, Wozniak felt that Wired, who were the ones who reported the story, got it wrong.

    According to him, “They got it quite wrong for their own reasons … I’m used to things like this, (where the media turns) ‘could’ into ‘should.’ But the idea caught a lot of attention. It was just (my) independent idea … I’m sure others have said it before but I get more attention …” He later goes on to add that his comment was intended as “a form of comedy. I felt it was an interesting thing to say.” Well regardless of whether he meant it in jest or whether it was meant as a serious suggestion, it got a lot of people talking which we guess was his intention all along.

    Nokia Android Phone Release Later This Month [Report]

    For the past couple of months we have been hearing a lot of rumors about Nokia working on an Android smartphone. At one point it was even rumored that Microsoft was pressuring the Finnish company into giving up this project primarily because in the near future, its hardware division is officially going to be a part of Redmond. Nokia seems to have went ahead anyway, with The Wall Street Journal running with a story today, claiming to have heard from people familiar with the matter that the Nokia Android phone is going to be released this month.

    U.S. Cellular Offers Moto G For $99

    Adnan Farooqui February 9, 2014

    U.S. Cellular Offers Moto G For $99

    Motorola’s Moto G smartphone was very well received when it was launched late last year, primarily because of the fact that its a bonafide mid-range Android smartphone that’s very competitively priced off contract. Motorola officially sells it for $179, but several carriers are selling it for even less, making it the perfect choice for customers who don’t want to spend too much on a smartphone and also want to avoid a conventional service contract, but do want a proper Android experience. U.S. Cellular adds itself to that list, the prepaid carrier is now offering the Moto G for $99 off contract.
