Facebook Updated To Version 10.0 With Ability To 'Like' Things Offline, Remove Tags, And More

Posted: 11 Jun 2014 03:08 PM PDT

unnamed (5)

Facebook's official Android app got an update today, bringing it to the nice, round version 10.0 mark. The update doesn't include any clarity for the app's interface (which, in many ways, is not dissimilar to a plate of spaghetti), but it does pack a few handy new tricks.

First up, the new app will allow users to "like" posts, photos, and pages without an internet connection. So if you're scrolling through your stream but don't have a data connection, no worries - just hit the "like" button and forget about it.

Pushbullet and EvolveSMS team up to bring PC SMS connectivity to Android devices

Posted: 11 Jun 2014 02:14 PM PDT


Pushbullet and EvolveSMS are teaming up to give users Motorola Connect-like features on their devices. The software will allow users to view and reply to SMS messages on their Android phone from their computers.

The software is currently in beta, so there might still be a few bugs, but the idea is that the partnership will deliver similar results to what Motorola did with the Moto X and Motorola Connectivity suite. Instead of having to reach for their phone to see and respond to messages, users can simply reply on their computer.

To install the software, users will need to follow instructions on the Google+ announcement, which can be found by following the source link. Remember that it's still in beta so there may be a few bugs!

PushBullet and EvolveSMS partner to bring SMS to your PC

Posted: 11 Jun 2014 01:50 PM PDT

We've said it before and we'll say it again: one of the best things about Android is the options you have for everything. Options for your default keyboard, home launcher, web browser, email client and more. Today, thanks to a partnership between EvolveSMS and PushBullet, Android users now have another option for sending SMS messages from their PC.

PushBullet and EvolveSMS have come up with a pretty genius way to work together to enable SMS texting from your computer. Here's how it works: PushBullet will be able to serve up notifications for EvolveSMS on your PC that will allow you to reply. After you've entered your reply, PushBullet will send the EvolveSMS app on your phone what you typed on your PC and Evolve will automatically send it. Pretty neat, eh?

Mighty Text and Motorola Connect both offer similar functionality, but it's nice to see another option available for users who aren't totally satisfied with what's already available. To try out the latest PushBullet and EvolveSMS features, you need to enter the beta group for both apps through Google+ here and here.

LG G3 release date tipped for Verizon with pre-orders opening July 10th [RUMOR]

Posted: 11 Jun 2014 01:19 PM PDT

LG G3 IMG_5371

Last week we got our first solid release date for the LG G3 in the UK, with retailer Carphone Warehouse confirming a July 1st release date. Today, the world reknown @evleaks could have gotten his hands on a US launch, with the phone making a brief appearance in a Verizon computer system.

According to the tip, those with their hearts set on the beefy LG G3 may want to mark July 10th on their calendar, that's the day when G3 pre-orders are expected to open. As for expected launch date, the phone is said to release only a few short days later, hitting stores on July 17th. Given @evleak's track record, we'd take him at his word but like most things of this nature, take it with a grain of salt.

No word on other details about the device, like whether or not wireless charging will be another Verizon exclusive for the LG G3. But for everyone else's sake, let's hope not.

Gameloft announces new titles for E3 2014: Asphalt Overdrive, Spider-Man Unlimited, Modern Combat 5 Blackout, and more

Posted: 11 Jun 2014 12:32 PM PDT

Gameloft logo

E3 2014 is off in full swing and along with big name game studios announcing their latest titles for our home consoles, Gameloft is doing the same with mobile. The mobile games publisher had a few new games to announce at the show, starting with Asphalt Overdrive, their newest take on the arcade racer.

Asphalt Overdrive

Don't call it Asphalt 9 — Asphalt Overdrive is a completely different fish (more of a spin-off). With gameplay that closely mimics endless runners, the game is not only played in portrait mode, but features swipe-able controls similar to titles like Subway Surfers. Again, this is not a race. Instead, Overdrive will have you completing missions, running from the cops, taking down other cars, and performing stunts — all with iconic cars from your favorite 80′s shows (A-Team van, Magnum PI's Ferrari, Knight Riders' black Trans Am).

Modern Combat 5

Another iteration of Gameloft's widely popular Modern Combat franchise is making its debut with Modern Combat 5 Blackout, coming soon to mobile devices. MC5 will feature… well, more of everything you love about the FPS genre, only shrunken down for your Android smartphone or tablet. The game's main draw is the 4 new character classes: heavy, recon, assault, and sniper. Modern Combat 5 will have a multiplayer mode for gaming with friends and arguably the best part about the new title is that it will be a paid premium title, none of that freemium stuff. Modern Combat 5 Blackout will hit app stores for around $7 when it debuts later this year.

Spider-Man Unlimited

And if endless running is your thing, you're in luck. Gameloft's Spider-Man Unlimited combines that tried-and-true classic gameplay with your favorite Marvel franchise. SMU features Spidey in a variety of his iconic suits — Iron Spider, Spider-Man Noir, Ends of the Earth — as he faces off against his usual foes. Gameloft shows us the Green Goblin and Vulture at the end of their new trailer.

Along with the aforementioned titles, Ice Age Adventures, Rival Knights: Cars, and Dungeon Gems were also announced at E3, although there wasn't much information about those titles currently. Gameloft is streaming a variety of these new titles live via their Twitch account, so check that out if you have a chance.

Mozilla to release a Firefox OS smartphone for only $25 in India

Posted: 11 Jun 2014 12:03 PM PDT

There have always been budget smartphones out there for under $200, but most were absolutely terrible. Finding a Chinese phone for $150 online basically meant you'd get a barely working device, or worse, a dumbphone OS made to look like iOS or Android. However, as of late, things have been changing. Many companies have been releasing solid budget devices. Most notable is Motorola with the Moto G and Moto E.

The Moto G comes in at a surprising $180, with some very solid specs that far exceed expectations. The Moto E is even cheaper at $130. But it looks like Mozilla is about to obliterate both devices in terms of price, as the company is planning to launch a smartphone for only $25 in India.

This device will be powered by Firefox OS, the companies HTML5 smartphone operating system. The company already releases devices at under $100, but a $25 price tag is absolutely insane. It'll definitely be an accessible price for those who finally want to graduate to a smartphone. Mozilla partnered with Indian manufacturers Intex and Spice to build the phone using Chinese Spreadtrum chips.

It's hard to believe we've hit a time where we can buy a smartphone for less than the cost of a tank of gas. Hell, a 32GB microSD can cost more than that. Of course, such a device really isn't for us tech enthusiasts. Still, it serves its purpose. Are you interested in getting such a cheap smartphone? Leave a comment!

Tweetdeck services taken offline after rapidly-spreading exploit

Posted: 11 Jun 2014 11:12 AM PDT

If are a big user of Tweetdeck, you might have noticed some issues with using those apps today. A security issue that was first discovered with the Chrome app version has since caused the app's owners at Twitter to shut down all Tweetdeck services to fix the problem.


The problem was first revealed earlier this morning, and it involves an XSS issue could cause hackers to execute code remotely on a user's PC — as demonstrated by a slew of automatic retweets spreading rapidly across Twitter.

Tweetdeck at first claimed [on their Twitter feed] http://ift.tt/1odTOmT) that they had quickly fixed the security issue and that it was isolated to the Chrome web app, but the problem is apparently persistent and showing up in other Tweetdeck clients. That was enough for Twitter to basically pull the plug on Tweekdeck completely. The latest message stated, "We've temporarily taken TweetDeck services down to assess today's earlier security issue. We'll update when services are back up."

How are Tweetdeck users coping with today's insanity?

The LG G3 is one of the best phones on the market, and it's coming soon to US carriers. A new leak from @evleaks reveals that the G3 will be up for pre-order on Verizon beginning July 10.

LG shares up 11%, analysts believe LG G3 may bring handset division out of the red

Posted: 11 Jun 2014 11:00 AM PDT

lg g3 aa (13 of 22)

When the Samsung Galaxy S5 was first announced at MWC it was immediately met with mixed reception, particularly among consumers who felt it was time for Samsung to make more dramatic changes. Despite this, sales have actually been reasonably smooth for Samsung.

Meanwhile, LG has since announced the LG G3, receiving almost completely positive reception all across the board. As for the actual sales? While it's too early to say for sure with the handset only fully launched in South Korea, we recently learned that the device was outselling the GS5 in Korea by a factor of more than 3-to-1. It seems that these brisk sales have also had a positive effect on the company's shares as well.

On May 27th, a day ahead of the G3's launch, LG closed its shares at 70,300 won ($69.14). Today that price value is at around 78,600 won ($77.31), representing an 11.8% increase in just a little over a week's worth of trading days. LG currently finds itself at a 52-week high, not bad at all.

the arrival of the LG G3 could signal a move into the black and out of the red for the company

With shares heading in the right direction, at least two different analyst groups believe that LG's handset business could find itself turning a profit in Q2 2014, the first time they've done so in a year. It remains unknown how well LG's mobile division will actually do, though Korea Investment & Securities' Lee Seung-hyuk estimates an operating profit of 206 billion won ($20.2 million). Shinhan Investment & Securities' Soh Hyun-chul has a slightly more conservative figure in mind at 11 billion won ($10.8 million).

Regardless of where LG ends up, the big takeaway is that the arrival of the LG G3 could signal a move into the black and out of the red for the company. We imagine that things could be even better for LG in Q3, when the G3 rolls out globally. With Samsung and Apple controlling 106% of operating profits in the smartphone world, LG may be a long ways from being a real threat to either of these giants, but it's still hard to not be at least a little impressed with how far LG has come in the last few years.

What do you think of the LG G3 and LG's recent direction in general? Let us know in the comments.

T-Mobile to add Alcatel OneTouch Fierce 2 and Alcatel OneTouch Evolve 2 to portfolio

A couple leaked press images reveal some new Alcatel devices are on their way to T-Mobile. The Alcatel OneTouch Fierce 2 and Alcatel OneTouch Evolve 2 are successors to a pair of budget smartphones that T-Mobile released last fall. No pricing or availability information leaked with the images, but the original OneTouch Fierce and OneTouch Evolve sold for only a few dollars per month.

The OneTouch Fierce was a 4.5-inch smartphone with a 960 x 540 screen, 1GM of RAM, a 1.2GHz processor and ran Android 4.2. The OneTouch Evolve was a little smaller at only 4 inches with an 800 x 480 screen resolution and had a 1GHz processor and 512MB of RAM. No information is available yet on the specs for the new devices so we can see how the budget category has changed over the last half a year.
