The prehistoric era has always been interesting but you know we can never go back to that period in time. Read all the books you want on the subject or visit museums to learn more but honestly, those ain't fun.

Drivemode app offers a “no look” navigation while driving

Android Auto is slowly being integrated in the latest vehicles today. It has Apple's CarPlay as direct rival and we're interested to know how the automotive industry will support each platform.

Fly with the birds in this musical adventure game “Gathering Sky”

There may be hundreds of thousands of adventure games available on Android but only a few really catch my attention.

Not this 'Gathering Sky' as the game trailer alone made me listen to the background music before actually playing it.

Blackview packaging turns into a Google Cardboard VR viewer

We haven't heard of the Blackview brand before but the Alife P1 Pro definitely got our attention because of its very unique packaging. Why, the cardboard box that houses the Android phone can be converted into a Google Cardboard.

It's giving the box another use aside from just being well, the box.

High performance SHIELD games get SHIELD Android TV compatibility

Don’t you just hate it when NVIDIA plainly tells you that your device is not good enough for a specific game?

There are several games out there that are playable only on an NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet with its Tegra K chip and 256-core GPU.
