Samsung announces first 128 GB memory based on UFS 2.0 spec

Mobile CPUs and GPUs have becoming faster and, with the introduction of LPDDR4, so is RAM. That leaves internal storage or flash memory as the bottleneck of a device's performance. Well, not anymore, at least if Samsung's promises are to be believed. The manufacturer has just revealed a memory chip that is claimed to be the industry's first 128 GB capacity flash storage that adheres to the not exactly new Universal Flash Storage 2.0 standard that promises SSD speeds at the power consumption level of eMMC.

iA Writer finally arrives on Android devices

There are a lot of note-taking and writing apps out there in the market, but there are times when you have a writing deadline or a very important article or report to write, where you don't need any distractions from the app's other features. Our iOS friends have been enjoying one such minimalist app for the past years, but now it has finally arrived for Android devices, and a blog post from the developer might also signal a new appreciation of Android for those who have been on the "other side".

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.

Samsung’s floating ToolBox now out for all Android devices

When describing Samsung’s proprietary apps, we could most likely use the term “hit or miss”. There are some Samsung apps (and features) that just defy logic. And then there are some that are so useful you begin to think how you’ll survive without it. The floating toolbox app on the Samsung Galaxy S5 was an app that tended to be on the latter – it was useful enough that you immediately notice that the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 doesn’t have it (what’s up with that Samsung?). So enter this new app.

Opera Max now lets carriers offer limited free app access

Opera has been trying to return to its glory days not by pushing its web browser to mobile but by offering value added services that aim to curb mobile data expenses. It's Opera Max app, which has just recently expanded to 21 countries in Asia, tries to compress data that is sent to smartphones. Now the app has gotten a new feature in the form of "App Pass", which is just a fancy marketing term for sponsored access to some apps.

Android One devices in India to get Lollipop

Pure Pool now out exclusively for NVIDIA Tegra K1-powered devices

A new billiards Android game is hardly any reason to get all excited – Android pool apps are typically dime-a-dozen. But Pure Pool, originally released for PC, PS4, and Xbox One, now makes its arrival at the Google Play Store – but unfortunately not just for any Android device. Your device has to have what is arguably the best processor and GPU combo known to man at this point – an NVIDIA Tegra K1 chip.

YouTube Kids app now available for Android devices (US only)

Most kids nowadays, particularly those who have Internet access and gadget-toting parents/guardians, have been watching TV shows not on an actual TV anymore but through YouTube. And while the video channel does have filters in place, we all know that "inappropriate" videos slip in every once in a while (okay, a lot of times) when you're not looking or supervising their viewing time. Google has now finally come up with their first app that is built specifically for children: the YouTube Kids app.

Pebble smartwatch with color display surfaces in leak

Rumor has it a Pebble smartwatch with a color display is inbound, and following nicely along with such speculation is a new leaked image showing what is probably the official update (it has since been pulled, but the image survives). In the leak we see a Pebble wearable with a yellow display, and though the shot is front-facing, preventing us from seeing it all, the wearable's overall design has been updated. Whether it is the real deal is yet to be seen, but we won't have to wait long to find out, with Pebble's event coming up shortly.
