Pac-Man chomps its way to Google Maps and Ingress for some retro-style fun

9

Google is usually good for some April Fools jokes, this time putting Pac-Man on the streets of Google Maps and into their alternate-reality game, Ingress.

Pac-Man can be played right now on Google Maps, utilizing the streets of the map as the course. Users can play on streets of their own town on the web, or in select areas on mobile devices. Google has listed a bunch of clues of where to find Pac-Man on mobile devices, but if you want to just get down and play try searching for "Arc de Triomphe".

Moto X (2014) camera tips and tricks

33
Moto X camera

The Moto X's camera is more than adequate if you know your way around it.

Motorola's original Moto X didn't have the greatest camera in the world. The 2014 model is a marked improvement, but still not as big or powerful as newer models like the Samsung Galaxy S6. It's a 13-megapixel shooter, and it's got a camera app that brings with it some of our favorite camera features and not a whole lot else. And we're going to show you how to make the most of that camera when you just have to get a shot — or a selfie — right now.

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

8

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.
