Chainfire updates CF.lumen, now available for non-rooted devices

Anytime you want to change the hue or color tone of your display either for convenience purposes or if you just want to impress your friends – and you can basically be sure that stock Android will not allow you to do this – time to install Chainfire’s “CF.lumen” app. This was once a “root only” app, but now an update has brought a workaround for non-root devices.

Bootloader unlock for Kindle Fire HDX tablet now available

The Kindle Fire HDX Tablet is just one of those tablets, you know – the ones that you love so much for the robust specs but hate so much because of the software embedded in it. In this case it is Amazon’s proprietary Fire OS. Nothing against the concept of tweaked Android stuff, because we love that. It’s just the locked bootloader on the tablet – which means you can’t easily change software – that tick us off.

Amazon Fire TV, Sling TV launch tie-up deal

With video streaming services and TV casting devices slowly becoming a must, and not just a need, among digital enthusiasts, the race is on to become the go-to name when it comes to "non-traditional" ways of watching movies, TV shows, and even playing games as well.

Build a fire breathing kingdom with Dragon Mania Legends

Dragons have never really been out of our consciousness, but they've enjoyed a sort of renaissance in pop culture the past years, with the awesome triple threat of dragons in Game of Thrones, then the scary (and mocking) Smaug from The Hobbit movie adaptation. But while those dragons are awe-inspiring, they have nothing on the fierce but adorable ones from Dragonlandia in a new Android game called Dragon Mania Legends.

Alcatel PIXI 3 phones come with Android, Windows, or Firefox

Alcatel OneTouch, the smartphone brand for Hong Kong-based TCL Communications, has announced at CES 2015 their newest innovative offering, the Pixi 3 series. Aside from being colorful and affordable for the masses, this new smartphone line offers something other brands haven't brought (yet): a device that is platform-agnostic and can run on Android, Firefox OS and Windows. It will also be able to give users 4G LTE Connectivity (well, at least 3 out of 4).

Install Google Play on your Amazon Fire Phone

The Amazon Fire Phone is a neat little device, with its robust specs and proprietary but efficient Fire OS. The “proprietary” part – which means the device is locked to Amazon’s App ecosystem – also means that the phone does not have full access to the Google Play Store, until now, that is.

Amazon has announced a new software update for its not so popular Fire smartphone.

HBO GO now on Amazon Fire TV

Finally, HBO Go is now on Amazon Fire TV. People have been clamoring for the HBO Go app but it took HBO a while to bring it to the web TV platform. Other platforms already have it but it's only now Amazon Fire TV users can get to enjoy more shows from HBO. This piece of news strengthens the claim that the number of apps available on Amazon Fire TV is now up four times. HBO Go is a great addition especially now that over 1,700 titles are in HBO's archive.
