64
Google Play Store

If you're new to Android completely or even if you just picked up a new device for the first time, there's one pretty annoying Google Play Store setting that you're probably going to want rid of as soon as possible. We're talking about the one that adds a shortcut to your homescreen for each and every application that you ever download.

Luckily, putting a stop to that isn't a difficult process. Here's how.

LG G Watch R hands-on

Our first look at LG's all-new rounded smartwatch

IFA 2014 If all the hype around the Moto 360 in recent months tells us anything, it's that tech enthusiasts want smartwatches that look good. LG's first Android Wear device, the G Watch, was little more than a vessel for Google's wearable OS. There really wasn't much hardware to talk about, just a rectangle on your wrist, and a window onto Android Wear.

For its second Android wearable, the LG G Watch R, the Korean manufacturer has focused much more strongly on the design of the physical hardware. And the result looks less like a smartphone on your wrist and more like a traditional analog watch. There's a gulf in build quality between the G Watch R and an expensive high-end timepiece, but like the rival Moto 360, it represents an important step in the right direction for smartwatch design.
