This is the app store that Kindle users get on Kindle tablets instead of Google Play, but any Android user can use it, though it can be a bit harder for some users to use it than others.

Here's what you need to know to decide if two app stores on your phone or tablet are worth it.

Hands-on with Seidio's TETRA Pro Metal Bumper Case for Galaxy S6

18

Taking the traditional bumper case and souping it up with CNC-machined aluminum is a bold move, but is the upgrade practical?

I've never been a huge fan of bumper cases in the past, but after hearing about Seidio's TETRA Pro for the Galaxy S6, I had to see what it was all about. Combining shock absorbent TPU with an aluminum bumper could either be really smart or a huge flop, because what's the most attractive feature of a bumper case? Its simple, yet protective design and slim form.

Go4D C1-Glass — a compact Google Cardboard partner with large screen support

8
Google Cardboard

One of the more interesting partners in Google's "Works with Cardboard" program is minimal, inexpensive, and ready for bigger screens.

Google Cardboard may have started out as a 20% project, but in less than a year things have grown considerably. New apps with Cardboard support hit the Play Store on a weekly basis now, and Google's hardware partnerships have extended the project from a quirky DIY setup to a competent micro-VR platform.

Of all the accessories shown off when Google first announced their "Works with Cardboard" partnerships, the Go4D C1-Glass stood out as one of the more curious offerings, due largely to how different the design was from the Gen 1 Cardboard units handed out at Google I/O last year. It turns out this is one of the better Cardboard offerings out there, and not just for folks with phones that don't fit in the sleeve of your standard foldable VR accessory.
