Foursquare relaunches with a more personalized service

Foursquare started out as one of the earliest location-sharing apps, where you can let others know where you’ve been and keep track of where your friends are. But over the past few months, they’re trying to evolve into more than just that, and they have just announced their upcoming rebranding, including a new logo and a much more personalised service where you can discover new places to visit, wherever you are.

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. For all intents and purposes, however, this is the very same One mini 2 that will be launched in Europe and Asia-Pacific, simply slapped on with Verizon branding. But that's not exactly a bad thing.

Marvel offering 1st month promo to read over 15,000 comics

How much would you pay to have unlimited access to over 15,000 digital comics for a month? The folks over at Marvel, in preparation for the massive San Diego Comic Con happening next week, have decided that all it should cost you is just $0.99. Yes, that’s not a typo, that really is just a very special offer for the first month of new subscribers to Marvel Unlimited, their massive digital library.

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. What if you can get all of that information from a single button? Now you can! At least, once the latest Google Maps update hits your device and brings with it the fancy new Explore feature that will have you typing less and walking, or driving, around more.

Fleksy 3.0 brings more languages, customisation options

Because users look at their mobile devices’ keyboards an average of 180 times or a minimum of 1.5 hours per day, it would really help if you had a nice-looking one right? The makers of one of the most popular virtual keyboards believe so, and that is why they’re releasing Fleksy 3.0, a new-look and redesigned version with 17 additional languages and even more customisation options at the Fleksy Store.

Lionheart Tactics brings a pinch of strategy to Android

Android has no dearth of games, but sometimes, they tend to congregate on tried and tested money makers or "safe bets". There are some, however, that do try to strike out on their own and attempt to bring game styles that, while not exactly totally new, are not that common on Android. Lionheart Tactics from Kongregate, the same guys who just last week brought Game of Thrones Ascent to Android, is a game set to the tune of the likes of Final Fantasy Tactics or Fire Emblem, but can it really stand up to these two classics?

HTC makes default keyboard app available on Google Play Store

Just like other OEMs like Motorola and Sony, HTC has also now “consciously uncoupled” (thank you Gwyneth Paltrow for that phrase) one of its system apps and made it available on the Google Play Store. The default keyboard for most HTC devices, HTC Sense Input, is now available for download at the store, but of course, it is only for HTC devices,specifically for the HTC One M7, HTC One M8 and the newest phones for the Dream series.

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.

File Manager now tweaked for Android Wear platform

Just how many files do you need to fit into your smartwatch? With an average of just around 4GB of internal storage (actually less because of various tools and apps), they really can’t handle that many to begin with. But apparently, there is now a version of the normal File Manager for Android that has been tweaked for the Android Wear platform, making sure that your Samsung Gear Live, LG G Watch and the future Moto 360 can have an organized way of handling multiple files.
