A Closer Look At The Design Of YouTube Gaming (Creator Preview)

Posted: 08 Aug 2015 10:14 AM PDT

Yesterday, we took a look at the YouTube Gaming app (at least the creator preview). Navigating through the app, users will see several elements obviously informed by YouTube's existing design - the video player can be minimized and dismissed, the navigation model relies entirely on tabs, and getting users to discover more content is the name of the game. But the app branches off from YouTube's design and UX - and the design of all of Google's Android apps - in some really remarkable and unique ways.

moto-e-2015

Competition in the budget and mid-range segment has reached fever pitch these past couple of years the push for true value for money handsets has been attributed most popularly in most markets to Motorola. Their first generation Moto G proved a great success for the struggling manufacturer and since then we've seen the OEM add an even lower cost handset geared towards those watching their wallet. The low-cost Motorola Moto E marked the third of three models Motorola has put out in most markets, with the Moto G an affordable mid-ranger and of course, the Moto X flagship.

Now in its second generation, the Moto E (2015) has grown in more ways than one, but given it's only tens of ...

According to a now-removed listing, Middle Eastern site Jarir Bookstore had revealed all the specs for both the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6+. The listing for the Galaxy Note 5 revealed a 5.7-inch QHD Super AMOLED display, a Exynos 7422 SoC, 4GB of RAM, a fingerprint sensor and finally, expandable storage of up to 128GB.

Weighing 169 grams, the phone will be 7.6mm thin and it also appears to have a massive non-removable 4100 mAh battery with a 16mp rear/5mp front camera. The S6+ shares a slightly different story here, as it does not come with a microSD card slot. However, the 4GB of RAM and 5.7-inch QHD display are the same.

If you don't already know, both phones are to be launched during Samsung's Unpacked event on August 13th.

Classic Educational Puzzle Game Zoombinis Comes To Android After A Successful Kickstarter Campaign

Posted: 07 Aug 2015 07:45 PM PDT

image (5)Ah, the 90s, when computers were only good for Word Perfect, Minesweeper, and whatever "edutainment" software the school had budgeted for this year. One of the standouts among some pretty decent educational games was Logical Journey of the Zoombinis, a series of puzzles centering around the titular tiny Smurf-like critters. If you have fond memories of that game, or later entries in the series, mosey on over to the Play Store.

Motorola talks Stagefright exploit, says updates will be handed off to carriers next week

Posted: 07 Aug 2015 04:48 PM PDT

The Stagefright exploit has had quite an effect on Android, causing several device makers to commit to monthly security updates. For many phones, that took effect this week, with companies like Google and Samsung pushing out updates to patch the exploit. Now Motorola has revealed its plans for patching Stagefright.

A new Motorola support page explains that the company became aware of the Stagefright exploit in late June, and since then Moto has been working to patch and protect its devices. The new Moto X Style/Pure Edition and Moto X Play will come with the Stagefright patch pre-installed, as will most Moto G (3rd Gen.) units. Motorola acknowledges that some early Moto G (3rd Gen.) shipments went out without the Stagefright patch, but the the firm promises that an update will be pushed to those devices "soon."

As for other phones in Motorola's lineup, Moto says that it's going to start giving its Stagefright patch to carrier partners on August 10. From there, it'll work with the carriers to get the updates out as quickly as possible. Here are the devices that Motorola will be issuing Stagefright patches to:

  • Moto X Style (patched from launch)
  • Moto X Play (patched from launch)
  • Moto X (1st Gen, 2nd Gen)
  • Moto X Pro
  • Moto Maxx/Turbo
  • Moto G (1st Gen, 2nd Gen, 3rd Gen)
  • Moto G with 4G LTE (1st Gen, 2nd Gen)
  • Moto E (1st Gen, 2nd Gen)
  • Moto E with 4G LTE (2nd Gen)
  • DROID Turbo
  • DROID Ultra/Mini/Maxx

August 10 is only a few days away, but it's unclear how long Motorola's Stagefright updates will be in carrier testing limbo. We've already seen several updates issued for carrier-branded Samsung devices, though, so here's to hoping that the Motorola updates start to appear next week. Until then, Motorola's got details on how to disable auto-downloading of MMS messages for several popular messaging apps.

Falcon Pro developer Joaquim Vergès joining Twitter to work on its Android app

Posted: 07 Aug 2015 04:28 PM PDT

There's some big news today involving Twitter, and for once, it's good!

Joaquim Vergès, developer of Twitter app Falcon Pro and other Android apps, has announced that he's joining Twitter as part of the Android core UI group. Vergès explains that he's gotten tired of all of the limitations that Twitter places on third-party developers, adding that he wants to "make a killer official app with full API and a modern UI."

As for Falcon Pro, Vergès says that the app will stay with him. It sounds like he plans to continue working on it, too, explaining that "it'll be a great place to try new experiments without the slowness of a big company."

Vergès has done great work on Android, with Falcon Pro being one of the best Twitter apps available on the platform. However, Twitter's harsh restrictions have had ill effects on Vergès and other developers, including limiting the number of user tokens that an app can have. What makes those restrictions worse is that Twitter's official app is inferior to third-party offerings. With Vergès joining the Twitter team, though, it'll definitely be interesting to see what happens with it in the future. And what's more, Falcon Pro will stick around as a place for Vergès to experiment with, so it's probably worth keeping it installed if you've already got it.
