IFTTT (If This Then That) has kicked off a new channel for Eyefi SD cards. That means when you take a shot with your dedicated camera that's using an Eyefi card, in addition to shunting it to your Android device as normal, you can automate all sorts of actions once that picture hits the cloud. Send pictures with a certain tag to your Flickr profile, or conversely, have shots from your Instagram account copied over to your Eyefi Cloud. All of those recipes can be handled with the relatively new IFTTT app for Android.
If you love sharing files, but don't trust The Cloud, BitTorrent's Android client has had a big revamp with a new user interface and the ability to share folders via HTTPS link, email, or QR code. The update also revamps the user interface and a few behind-the-scenes improvements. These changes come alongside an equally-vamped desktop client.
Official Google News app hits Google Play with first significant update in years
The built-in Google News and Weather app on stock Android devices hasn't been given much attention since back in the Android 2.3 days. That changes today, however, with a major update to the app now hitting the Google Play Store. Google News & Weather version 2.0 is now landing on the Play Store for just about all Android devices, and it's available as an app update for anyone running the old version.
A new version of the Madden NFL Mobile game is now available for sports fans that really need to get into the action. Build a team, manage positions, call plays, and upgrade your players. Take the game online and see how well you do against your buddies. This is a freemium title mind you, so expect in-app purchases and timers.
The AT&T version of the original HTC One Mini will be enjoying an upgrade to Sense 6, according to an HTC spokesperson. The newer HTC One Mini 2 shipped with Sense 6, but it's good to see its predecessor get some love.
Reddit calls itself the front page of the internet, but it's a little more difficult than that to define to outsiders. It's part social media, part news, and a big part entertainment. Despite Reddit's great and growing popularity, they still lack an official Android app, and so, just as we see with Twitter, there are dozens of clients you can use to upvote cat videos and Android rumors on the go. And among those dozens, here are the ones we at Android Central think are most worthy of your use.
So, without further ado, here are our top five Reddit apps for Android!
Volvo (volvocars.com), the Swedish automaker, has just announced that their new 2015 models will include the company's Sensus connectivity and infotainment system as standard. This includes the 2015.5 Volvo S60, V60, XC60, S80, and XC70.
Volvo's Sensus Connect system includes smartphone connectivity through a free app called Volvo On Call. It's available on iOS, Android, and Windows Phone. What can you do with app? Let's take a look at the features.
We've covered Tasker and the very basics of how to use it, and now, it's time for you to start playing a little bit on your own. Think of Tasker as a toy as much as a tool and you can really let loose and have fun in it. Voice controls, plugins and a little ingenuity can turn your phone into your butler, your study buddy, and your best friend.
Now, today I'm just going to go over a few things that can help you pick a project you'd might like to do, or help you when you get stuck and the supportcommunities aren't being responsive, which is admittedly rare.
The folks at LastPass are pushing a big update to Android devices today, with long-term plans to make sure your smartphone or tablet can be standalone LastPass systems with all of the same features as the PC version of the service.
Password managers are one of those things that you either rely on entirely or just don't bother with. We live in a world where password rules can be more than a little crazy, and it seems like every other week there's a email sitting in our inboxes from a company announcing a security breach. It has never been more important for your personal security to be taken seriously, and unfortunately that includes having many different passwords for many different services. LastPass is one of several services that tries to make this easier on you by offering to generate secure passwords and storing those passwords in a way that can be securely accessed by you from just about anywhere.
We sat down recently with LastPass CEO Joe Siegrist to talk about the differences between the Android version of LastPass and the Desktop client, and what is being done to decrease the feature gap between the two.
Apps — we all love them, and Google Play has a ton of them. Some are good, some are great, and some are mind-bogglingly terribad. Some are even Flappy. See what we're digging this week, and give them a try. There's a good chance you'll like at least a few, and apps need love, too. Think of the apps!
As always, be sure to tell us about any great apps we need to be using. The best part of our jobs is playing with apps — especially great ones.
This skeptic is beginning to like and use Twitter more, but why?
Let me start with a little confession: I've been a little bit of a skeptic when it comes to the "microblogging" platform Twitter. I think I just saw it as a social media platform much lamer than the likes of Facebook or Google+. After all, what can you do with a measly 140 characters, right?
I'm coming around, though, and I actually enjoy using it now. Let me share some of my reasoning with you.
We've got another week chock-full of excellent Android apps and games hitting the Google Play Store. Flappy Bird creator Dong Nguyen is back to test the outer limits of patience with his latest game, Swing Copters. The folks from Pixite have ported over their first photo app, and the results are really impressive.
We've dug up plenty more Android games and apps that have just been released, though. Dive in and get downloading!
