App developers can now slam on the brakes should a staged rollout go bad

8

Here's a small but extremely important little feature that's been added for developers in Google Play. Should a bug be found in the middle of a staged rollout, you can immediately halt said staged rollout to keep the bad code from hitting any additional devices while you work things out.

In other words, an emergency brake. It won't roll things back for those who have already received the update, but it'll keep anyone else from downloading it.

Farewell, bloops and whistles: Annoying TouchWiz sounds are no more on the Galaxy S6

90

Samsung has finally done away with two of our pet hates in its TouchWiz UI.

If you've ever used a Samsung Galaxy phone — or even sat near anyone else using one — you'll be familiar with the manufacturer's widely derided default sound effects. Since the Galaxy S3, each button press or icon tap has been punctuated by an obnoxious "bloop" — supposedly a water droplet sound — a remnant of the GS3's whole "inspired by nature" thing. Same deal with the default notification sound, the unmistakeable Samsung whistle that accompanies each email, text and social alert out of the box.
