A quick heads up, folks, that the official Pebble app got an update Saturday evening to address a couple of major bugs.
Here’s the changelog:
Stability improvements throughout the app Fix issue in which users were stuck at “Starting installation…” during setup
We wouldn’t go so far to say that the app’s now what we’d expect from Pebble — it’s still way more sluggish and a little unwieldy than we’d like. But these are good fixes, and [Read More...]
The ‘uncarrier’ serves up 200MB of free 2G data overseas, but it’s worth splurging on a full data pass for proper roaming
Every year before heading to Spain for Mobile World Congress you can find journalists asking each other “what are you doing for data this year?” Finding a local SIM card is always an option, of course, provided you’ve got a SIM-unlocked device. But I’ve usually found that to be a waste of time versus [Read More...]

Motorola is hip. You want proof?

Keep in mind that if you have multiple new notifications, it will read all of them, not just the most recent. Kudos to Motorola for adding functionality to an already awesome app.
They also added end-of-speech detection, allowing users to [Read More...]
495MB over-the-air update brings T-Mo’s Note 3 up to latest Android version

The app syncs into your Google account, so you have access to any short URLs you’ve previously created (and you can get analytics on other goo.gl URLs as [Read More...]
One of the best things about Android is the customisation options available. So when the Nokia X was announced only for it to be confirmed there would be no Google services integration, developers everywhere simply took that as a challenge.
Nokia still make arguably the best hardware out of all smartphone manufacturers, and fans have been longing for a Nokia running Android. However, given the integration with Microsoft, Nokia chose to remove the Google services (Gmail, Play Store etc.) and [Read More...]
