Modern Combat 5 throws IAP out of your crosshairs

Samsung Galaxy Alpha leak: semi-metallic mini Galaxy S5

Word has been going around that Samsung is preparing a certain Galaxy Alpha, not the premium Galaxy F/Galaxy S5 Prime that has not yet come to pass (unless you count the Galaxy S5 LTE-A in Korea). A bunch of leaked photos and specs have recently come out that paints a somewhat curious picture of this smartphone, which some are poising to be a more direct iPhone rival.

Verizon’s HTC One Remix is a rebranded One mini 2

"A rose by any other name", or so the oft-quoted phrase goes. Verizon has just announced the arrival of a certain HTC One Remix, bearing key features of the One M8 in a tinier package.

Google Maps update lets you search less, Explore more

It's easy enough these days to just ask Google Search what interesting places can be found nearby, but that's still a few taps or spoken words away.

Microsoft Account app takes on Google Authenticator

People are starting to become more conscious of how fragile their easy-to-remember passwords are, but that doesn't mean they're actively taking steps to protect their precious online accounts. To ease the process of securing accounts, logging into them and entering passwords, Microsoft released a new app on Android called Microsoft Account that, to be brutally honest, is simply a Microsoft-centric version of Google Authenticator.

Google Maps gets a localized version for India

Whether you're just traveling to the next city to visit a friend or taking a vacation in New Delhi, Google Maps has got your location needs covered. Today, Google has announced Google Maps in Hindi, the latest fruit of its efforts to break down the barriers that keep people apart, whether it be physical location or language differences.

Pyrus on Android Wear leaves no excuse to miss tasks

Even in this digital age, where people almost have their faces glued to their smartphone or tablet screens, it is still possible, or even convenient, to miss a pending task notification or email. Smartwatches, however, can now make sure that you are always up to date and up to task with notifications, and collaborative task management Pyrus is the first app of its kind to jump into the Android Wear scene.
