Motorola releases two apps to manage your new Moto Mods

Posted: 28 Jul 2016 03:11 PM PDT

Now that the Moto Z and Moto Z Force are officially out on Verizon, Motorola has uploaded two apps to the Google Play Store to help you manage your new Moto Mods.

The Moto Mods Manager app will allow you to control the mods attached to your phone. It also lets you update the mods, which makes the mods a lot more open to new features and fixes from Motorola.

The Moto Mods Projector app is specific to the projector Moto Mod, and it opens a pop up menu when you press the button on the mod to control keystone and brightness on the fly.

If you own the device and some mods, hit the source link to download the apps!

Moto Z Droid and Moto Z Force Droid now available on Verizon

Posted: 28 Jul 2016 03:11 PM PDT

If you've been waiting to get your hands on a Moto Z or Moto Z Force, the Droid versions are now available for purchase on Verizon! Though pre-orders have been available for a while, you can now buy the devices online and in some stores.

Both devices feature a 5.5-inch QHD AMOLED display (though the Force has Shattershield tech), a Snapdragon 820 processor, 4GB of RAM, 32GB of memory with a microSD slot, and Moto Mods support. The camera is 13MP and 21MP on the Moto Z and Moto Z Force respectively, and the batteries are 2600 mAh and 3500 mAh. The battery alone makes the Force a good option, though you'll lose the 5.2mm thickness.

Verizon is also selling Moto Mods, with 20% off your second Moto Mod. How many of you will be picking one up? Leave a comment!

Samsung reportedly releasing Gear S3 at IFA Berlin in September

Posted: 28 Jul 2016 03:11 PM PDT

The Samsung Gear S2 is a pretty solid smartwatch despite the fact that it runs Tizen instead of Android Wear. However, now might not be the best time to buy one, as the successor is reportedly launching in a little over a month.

The Samsung Gear S3 is said to launch at IFA Berlin, hosted between September 2 and 7. It will be another round watch with the same rotary bezel as the current model, but we don't know what kind of upgrades we'll be seeing.

With the Galaxy Note 7 not launching at IFA (only a few more days!), this device might be one of the bigger ones announced. So hold off on the purchase of a Gear S2, soon there will be a new model and discounts on the old one.

[Not very swift] SwiftKey sync has been down for the last 3 days, but it's being worked on

Noticing something is amiss with SwiftKey lately? You are not alone. The keyboard's sync service has been broken for the last three days, and there's no sign of a resolution yet. SwiftKey is aware of the problem, though.

One of the nifty things about SwiftKey is that it includes Google account login for syncing your typing data. That means custom phrases and suggestions will be available in the keyboard. Without sync, no new words can be sent to the cloud or downloaded to devices.

Add-ons for Docs and Sheets are now on Google Play

Posted: 28 Jul 2016 11:41 AM PDT

ProsperWorks

Two years ago Google introduced extensions for Google Docs and Sheets. These third-party add-ons expanded on what the browser-based word processor and spreadsheet could do, often integrating them with online services. Now that functionality has made its way to Android.

These add-ons are available for download directly from Google Play as part of a developer preview. The initial wave includes the likes of DocuSign, PandaDoc, Scanbot, and Zoho. Through these extensions, you're gaining the ability to sign documents and save them directly to Docs or import CRM data to create reports and graphs on Sheets.

The Moto Z and Moto Z Force have launched today as Verizon-exclusive devices. The Moto Z will come out as an unlocked device in the not too distant future, but the Droid phones are the only game in town when it comes to Moto Mods. And there are settings apps for the Mods in the Play Store—two of them, in fact. I guess that's cool.

The first app is the general Mod Manager service.

Latest YouTube update removes notification button to close background play

Google does a lot of smart things, but it also makes some very bizarre (dare I say, dumb?) decisions. Case in point, YouTube recently changed the way it handles background play, making it harder to end playback from the notification. The "x" used to be tiny, but now it's just gone.

Background play is a feature people begged Google to implement for years, and now it exists as long as you have YouTube Red.

We all know the LEGO formula by now: run around with a character, collect as many coins as possible, and advance through the game.

Galaxy Note 7 Will Come With 3,500 mAh Battery

Posted: 27 Jul 2016 10:29 PM PDT

skt_galaxy_note_7

Samsung is expected to launch their next flagship smartphone in less than a week from now and we pretty much know almost everything about the phone thanks to recent leaks. The Note lineup tends to come with larger than normal battery sizes to cope with the massive display, however that has remained a secret until now.

Thanks to a South Korean carrier product listing, the Galaxy Note 7 will sport a 3,500 mAh battery and have a weight of 169g, making it 2 grams lighter than its predecessor. Unfortunately, the rumoured 4,000 mAh battery did not come to fruition. Despite the size, the Note has always had decent battery life and I am expecting the same from the Note 7.

It has been about six weeks since the last YouTube Gaming update rolled out, and it's clear the developers have been keeping pretty busy on making changes. The latest update has quite a few improvements to be found throughout the app, not to mention at least one feature that might be considered pretty huge. Topping the list is a new live comment stream that overlays on top of gameplay videos so you can see the action and watch the commentary at the same time.
