Update

Remote Link now available for non-ASUS devices

It used to be that our phones' only function was to send messages and make calls. But now, they have become so much more than that. They've become our personal digital assistant, our link to the world, our official camera, heck, even our friend. And there are lots of apps out there that give them additional functions. ASUS' Remote Link is one of those, and the newest update to the app means it can now apply even to non-ASUS devices.

Gmail app improved once again, IMAP support now more reliable

There will never be an end to Google updating its native mail app. Gmail has been one of the top favorites of not just Android fans but also those using other mobile platforms because you can easily organize mails, search the inbox, and the tons of space that come with it.

Swype update: better number entry, two-word phrase prediction

Galaxy Tab 4 10.1 now receiving Android Lollipop update

Who says the Android goodies will only come to flagship and/or high-end phones?

HTC Lock Screen gets Material Design, new features

If you have an HTC device, then you must have been happy when sometime last year, they launched an app on Google Play Store that was just previously available for the newer smartphones like the HTC One M8. The HTC Lock Screen is pretty useful for those who are tired of constantly unlocking and then locking their phones, as it enables you to still access certain functions and features even without unlocking your device. A new update to the app brings even more useful features, particularly if you love to travel and go around places.

Roku mobile update: feed and voice search

If you have a Roku set-top box at home for your multi-media needs, then you definitely need to have the mobile app in order to still have control over your content and device. A new update to the app brings more goodies to the table with the brand new Roku Feed and voice search features now available for your smartphone and tablet. You still won't be able to watch videos and shows of course, but you can still research and keep updated with the content that you want to watch when you get home.
