38 Best Android Wear Apps And Watch Faces From 12/3/15—3/4/16

Posted: 05 Mar 2016 02:14 PM PST

ap_resizeSmart watches might not be an essential piece of technology yet, but the more apps and watch faces there are, the more useful they become. Sure, many of them are ill-advised and may murder your battery (killer app?), but that's the price you pay to find the truly good apps. Today we have many apps and watch faces, some of them are just for fun and others might be genuinely useful.

Tablified Market Gets A Material Makeover — Still The Best Way To Find Tablet-Optimized Apps

Posted: 05 Mar 2016 06:32 AM PST

tablified-market

When I got my first Android tablet sometime around 2012 or 2013, I turned to Tablified Market to find good tablet apps. At the time, the Play Store didn't have any way of filtering tablet-optimized apps (and it still sucks at that) and Tablified was doing a great job of curating them into categories and easy to browse lists. But despite its good content, the Tablified app was merely an HTML wrapper for the website.

Grab Some Popcorn And Rent A Movie Half Price!

Posted: 04 Mar 2016 04:19 PM PST

Half Price Movie

We've had a pretty nice winter so far (at least where I am) but if the weekend forecast is looking cold, why not stay in and catch a movie?

Google is currently offering 50% off any one movie rental.  The promo runs till March 17 and after making your purchase you'll have 30 days to watch the movie before it expires.

If you're not seeing the discounted prices don't fret.  The discount is applied once you go to check out.  And unlike most of their promos which are limited to select titles, this promo works across the entire store.   So grab some popcorn, find a friend and take in a great movie at a great price.

HTC’s Next Flagship To Be Name The HTC 10

Earlier today we got our best look at HTC's new device, tentatively referred to as the HTC One M10.  Well it appears that that will not be the name of HTC's new flagship.

There had been some rumblings that HTC would ditch the "One" moniker and according to @evleaks, that is indeed the case.  According to the leakster, HTC's next hero device will be called the HTC 10.  Another famous leakster, @onleaks, also suggested the HTC 10 name in a recent Tweet.

Given that two of the worlds top leaksters are in agreement, it seems like a pretty safe bet to conclude that that is indeed the new name.

I'm not sure I'm a huge fan of the name.  I have no problem with the One moniker living on, especially because this new device is clearly a descendant of that line.  But then again, the name should be the least of HTC's worries.  They really need to bring it this year and turn their ship around so hopefully the HTC 10 will do just that.

What do you guys think of the re-brand?

Moto G 2nd Gen Getting Its Marshmallow On

Posted: 04 Mar 2016 03:43 PM PST

Moto G 2nd Gen

The Moto G's remain some of the best budget phones on the market and if you happen to have a 2014 iteration of the phone, we've got some good news for you.  Tips are coming in stating that the Marshmallow update is rolling out to Canadian devices!

Some of the new Marshmallow features that will surely appeal to current users are the improved battery life, thanks to Doze, and the ability to use a microSD card as internal storage (reformatting is required so make sure you back up your card before doing this).  Marshmallow also brings Now on Tap, the evolution of Google's Google Now feature.

If you haven't received a notification for the update yet, jump into your settings and click on "about device."  In there, you'll be able to do a manual update check.

It's nice to see that even though Motorola has folded into Lenovo, updates are still rolling out to the Moto's.
