Using ePub files on Android

20

There's a big difference between open and functional, and it's not always easy to get both when it comes to ePub apps.

You may not be aware of this, but if you're a fan of ebooks there's a good chance you have a collection of ePub files sitting around. There may be some unfortunate DRM in between you and those files, but they almost certainly exist. Generally speaking, the ePub format is the standard for digital books that aren't sold by or made for Amazon. It's a format that has been around for a long time, due largely to its flexibility, and as a result there are no shortage of apps out there to handle ePub files.

All you really need to know is how to get to those formats, and know the best way to enjoy those books when you're not bound to apps like Google Play Books or Kindle.

HTC shutting down Sense TV app, moving users over to Peel

20

HTC has confirmed that it's shutting down its Sense TV app at the end of April, and moving users over to the Peel app bundled on the One M9.

Owners of the Windows Phone version of the HTC One M8 have noticed that the Sense TV app, which functions as a smart TV remote using the built-in IR blaster, has started notifying them that the service will be shut down from April 30. The move isn't surprising given that HTC's shipping a regular Peel remote app instead of Sense TV on its latest One M9. However we now have confirmation from HTC that the move away from Sense TV is taking place, and that it'll affect Android owners as well as its most recent Windows device.

How to pin (and unpin) apps in the Sense Home Widget

2
HTC One M9 Sense 7 app pinning

The Sense Home Widget on the HTC One M9 is trying its hardest. It's taking a look at where you are, when you're there and what apps you're using and then surfacing them to the home screen in its predictive, adaptive widget. And it does OK. But sometimes you might want to make sure an app stays put, say, while you're at home versus on the road. And for that there's "pinning."

And this is how you pin an app to the home screen in Sense 7.

Turns out Verizon will carry the Galaxy S6 in gold after all

38

Fear not, lovers of gold technology, Verizon will carry the Galaxy S6 in gold alongside black and white.

While T-Mobile and AT&T had already committed to carrying three distinct colors of the Galaxy S6, Verizon was holding strong on simply offering the white and black models — until today, that is. Along with a reminder that it will begin taking pre-orders for the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge on April 1 (but this isn't a joke), Verizon dropped the bit of news that the gold color option will be available right next to the other two colors.
