Google slowly rolling out “On-Body Detection” mode to Android users

Or worse, when people have the nerve to steal your unlocked device left somewhere out there? Well, if Google does roll out this new feature to all Android devices, then your problems may be partly solved. They can't help you if you're too forgetful and leave your phone a lot.

OPPO brings out ColorOS 2.0.7i update, still KitKat flavors

If there’s any consolation for not having Lollipop on a flagship level phone these days, Chinese manufacturer OPPO seems to be saying that at the very least, they’ll give you lots of new features. Is that a consolation at all? At this point, users of the OPPO Find 7 will not have any choice but to accept the ColorOS 2.0.7i update – with lots of fixes, new features, but still distinctly and a bit disappointingly, Android 4.4.2 KitKat.

Episode 2 of Tales from the Borderlands arrives to much acclaim

If you’re a proper gamer, you will at least have heard of the Borderlands franchise. The game has made us all believers in a fun and engaging story-based first person shooter again. The storylines are unique, the characters are ones you definitely won’t forget. Telltale Games transferred most of this hilarity and fun to “Tales from the Borderlands”, a story-slash-game that we featured a few months back. Now Episode 2 is here, and it’s packing some serious fun.

Who doesn't want to become a boss at least once in his lifetime?

X-Men: Days of Future Past brings side-scrolling action to Android

If you’ve been around Marvel movies in the past few years you’ll know that the title of this new Android game from Glitchsoft – X-Men: Days of Future Past – is taken from the movie of the same title, which was in itself an attempt to bring together the screwed up timelines and storylines the X-Men movies have given us. The game itself reflects the movie, but gives us some nostalgic 2D side-scrolling fun while it’s at it.

Space Chicks: an endless platformer where you can save the world

It may not have the most politically correct name (or even the mission itself), but it sure looks like a fun game to play. Space Chicks is an endless platformer that lets you become the hero, not just to the "chicks" but to the world, and all you have to do is use just one finger. Okay, that isn't as dirty as it sounds, believe us, since really, the game has simple one touch controls.

Amazon Appstore to offer paid apps for free

While most Android users still get their apps from the Google Play Store, online retail giant Amazon is still trying to make their mark through their own Android-based appstore. They know the only way to attract users to them is by borrowing a little something from how Amazon has lured consumers to their site: through discounts, freebies, and sometimes, even more "disruptive storefront promotions". It looks like they'll be continuing with this strategy as they're preparing to launch an "Unlocked" section in the appstore.
