When you have multiple mobile devices, languishing batteries aren't your only concern. Keeping your apps and their data in sync across all those devices is always a pain in one's extremities. Some apps can manage that for you, but not all of them. Google has app backups and syncing, but not all Android apps partake of that either.

Paranoid Android 4.6 beta 5 “Playful Pitaya” goes live

Paranoid Android has made another beta release of the 4.6 branch of their custom ROM, and this time they're back on track at hammering out the feature set for Dynamic Status Bars, or DSB in the ROM's parlance.

If you've had your fill of what is now practically known as the Multiplayer Online Battle Arena or MOBA genre for PCs, wait till they saturate Android as well.
