Smart Lock 'on-body detection' now rolling out to Lollipop devices

Posted: 21 Mar 2015 02:05 PM PDT




The new motion-based feature for Smart Lock is better than no security at all — but only barely.



Google appears to be quietly rolling out a new addition to the Smart Lock feature in Android Lollipop, bringing an extra unlock option that works with motion sensors inside Android devices. "On-body detection" is designed to use your phone's accelerometers to figure out when it's been set down on a surface, and lock — with whatever lock pattern or PIN code you've set — when it's not on your person.

What we're using: How AC editors approach Android photography

Posted: 21 Mar 2015 12:37 PM PDT






We've spent some time talking about photography and Android. The two things go together very well, and most of us want to take the best pictures we can when we pull out our phone to take one.


Here at AC, we're all Android fans at heart — just like you are. We want the same things you do out of the camera on our phones, and we want the best pictures we can get. Again — just like everyone reading this. We get to try and use more Android phones than most folks due to the nature of our job, but because we're Android fans we all have a favorite when it comes to features like the camera. Join us as we take a minute to go around the table and talk about how we do Android photography.

The ICC And Reliance Big Entertainment Release An Official Fantasy Cricket App For The World Cup

Posted: 21 Mar 2015 11:35 AM PDT

unnamed (5) Cricket. Cricket. That's the one like baseball, but with the flat bats and a circular field and a ton of players and black tea afterwards, right? I apologize - as an American it's hard for me to concentrate on sports that don't involve constant concussions and commercial breaks every two minutes. But I am reliably informed that Cricket is enjoyed in Britain and all the places that used to be Britain (except this one).

Frozen Synapse Prime Brings Deep Tactical Gameplay From The PS Vita To Android

Posted: 21 Mar 2015 10:31 AM PDT

unnamed Tactical military strategy and RPGs make a natural fit for mobile platforms, especially tablets, thanks to a top-down battlefield and gameplay that's helped along by precision movement. Android already has a small but impressive collection of tactical strategy options, including notable PC/console games like XCOM and more niche options like Ambition of the Slimes. Now Android strategy fans can play Frozen Synapse Prime, a well-received remake of the original Frozen Synapse, for $5.

How to turn photos into Android wallpapers

Posted: 21 Mar 2015 10:07 AM PDT





You can tell a lot about a person by the wallpaper on their phone...



Be it an battery-efficient black wallpaper or one of the millions of pictures of your kids that has consumed every byte of free-space on your phone, a wallpaper says a lot about its user. Even if they're still using the bland, boring wallpaper that came with it. It says: my phone isn't here to look pretty, it's here to make calls and answer texts. But maybe that's not true. Maybe you just didn't like the wallpapers included on your phone and you didn't think about adding one of your own. Well, setting a new wallpaper is easy to do and something you really should do, as a good wallpaper can help give you a nice little pick me up every time you see it.


If you need some images to use as your wallpaper, check out our lovely wallpaper gallery!

New Lollipop “on-body” mode keeps your phone unlocked as long as you’re carrying it

This Moto 360 pocket watch should totally be a real thing

Posted: 21 Mar 2015 05:52 AM PDT




While everyone's going gaga over smartwatches, we whip up a bit of the old-school.



Ever since Motorola's first live stream for the Moto 360, there's been this notion buzzing in the back of my head. As amazing as the round design looked on the wrist, the way Motorola had embedded the watch band connectors into the casing with no lugs on either side gave me visions of a smart pocket watch. With our recent exploration into 3D Printing here at Android Central, now seemed like the right time to see what was possible. What happened next was a solid week of tinkering, printing, very nearly destroying a Moto 360, and at last ending up with a functional design that could be used as a pocket watch.
