Solid Explorer File Manager goes Material Design, gets Chromecast support

File manager apps are a dime a dozen but not all of them offer a rich file browsing and cloud management experience.

Specular Theory creates Terminator Genisys 360-degree video

If you've lost count of how many Terminator movies there have been in the advent of the release of Terminator Genisys, that doesn't really matter. What has gotten our interest is a short film created by the folks over at Specular Theory that is not just any promotional video, but rather a 360-degree virtual reality experience that you can enjoy on your desktop or on mobile devices, but especially with Google Cardboard to get the full-on effect. There is even a cameo by a certain well-known ex-Terminator and ex-California governor.

Crush all those caravans in this new Top Gear action game

Here’s another action game that will give you that adrenaline rush--Top Gear: Caravan Crush. The fact that it’s an official BBC Top Gear game makes it worthy of our attention.

OnePlus 2 pops up at Geekbench 3, Bluetooth SIG

Honestly, we're excited about the impending arrival of the OnePlus 2 simply because we're curious if OnePlus' response to criticisms a couples of weeks ago is valid. The company told us that the next flagship will be better so we want to see how it will fare with the competition.

Changes coming to Clash of Clans, level 5 dragons, anyone?

Supercell’s latest update to its genre-breaking massively multiplayer online (MMO) real time strategy game (RTS) “Clash of Clans” is a little bit bigger than what regular players are used to, so it would be wise to expect a good number of changes within the game with this update. Coming to the game specifically will be Level 5 Dragons (yes!), a new Dark Elixir factory, a second Air Sweeper from Town Hall level 9 among other little changes within the game.
