Smart Unlock skips lock security in safe and trusted areas

Phone lock features are quite useful but unlocking can be a hassle at times. Frequent entering the passcode, pattern, slide, pin, or fingerprint or facial recognition can take a while. Why can't the phone just ask for the unlock code when it's not within a known territory? That's what the Smart Unlock app does. It offers a hassle-free mobile use at places that are safe and secure. When connected to a trusted device or known network, the phone will no longer ask for the pin. It eliminates one step to accessing your phone or tablet because you can directly go to homepage.

OnePlus to delay launch of 2nd phone, moved to Q3 of 2015

The OnePlus One was one of the phones of 2014, simply because it managed to marry top-of-the-line specs with a sub-USD$300 price point. Never mind the roundabout way of actually owning one, for those who got their hands on a OnePlus One smartphone, they will surely say that they got the deal of the year. Now, OnePlus has to maneuver through the tricky waters of following it up with an equally great deal for the OnePlus 2 (that’s what they’re calling it) – but it seems that we have to wait a while to see it.

LG rolls out new flip phone, calls it the ‘Ice Cream Smart’

Flip smartphones are nothing new. In fact, LG and its close rival Samsung already released a few models the past couple of years. They're not as popular as the other top smartphones but there is still a market for clamshell phones. Last year, LG introduced its first flip style smartphone called the Wine Smart. It was aimed to beat Samsung's SM-G9098 dual screen flip phone. We're not sure if it did succeed but we know LG wants to prove itself once more in the flip phone arena. Enters the LG Ice Cream Smart. This phone doesn't necessarily run Android Ice Cream Sandwich but the name can be really confusing although very yummy.

Beware of aliens that are having a bad hair day! It seems that the bald creatures from the other world have discovered the secret to earth's great-looking locks, and apparently, it's all about the fruits (and follicle-challenged people suddenly rush to the fruit market). But for some reason, they choose to attack the "peaceful Zoozoo Village" and take not just the fruits but also some of the animals. Now it's up to you to rescue them in Joy Flight.

Smash blocks with an armadillo in Blockadillo game for Android

Armadillos may look scary (or at least to those who are afraid of mammals with shells) but mostly they're innocuous and are often victims of road accidents because they're jittery and nervous when startled. So basically, they're pretty harmless. But the armadillos in this new Android game are anything but (actually, they hardly look like armadillos) and have one purpose only: to destroy the blocks around them and get you as many points as they can.
