Motorola holding launch events on July 28 — New Moto phones inbound

68
Moto invite

'Your relationship status is about to change'

Motorola has started sending out invites for press events on July 28 in New York City, São Paulo and London. What will we see? A new Moto G is likely in light of recent leaks, but we wouldn't rule out the possibility of higher-end stuff as well.

Moto's invite is pretty coy — does that signature contain both Xs and Gs, or are we reading too much into it?

The company's teaser site offers some background:

Yes. We're in a relationship with our phone.

We feel lost without it. We trust them with our most personal questions, photos, stories and secrets. They never leave our side. But shouldn't all that care and devotion you show be returned?

A better mobile relationship is on its way.

Join us on 7.28.15 to find out how we are changing things for the better.

Whatever happens, we'll be live from both NYC and London on the morning of July 28 to find out more.

Adult comics and Hentai Manga make their way to the MiKandi adult app store [NSFW]

The biggest adult app store just got a little bigger and better with the introduction of adult comics.

Android After Dark

It's a big world out there, and it's not all Rated G. Welcome to Android Central's NSFW section — home to sex, booze and other stories of an adult nature. It's not for everyone — especially if you're underage —and that's OK. Be adult. Be respectful. And be responsible.

MiKandi is a name familiar to many of us. They have taken the tired mantra of "Android is for porn," ran with it and embraced it. The result is a place where adults can find the adult-themed content they are looking for.

We wouldn't want it any other way.

Using a GoPro with Android

12
GoPro for Android

When it comes to strapping a camera to something and doing something crazy, GoPro is usually the first gadget that comes to mind nowadays. The company has worked hard to put its hardware in the hands of some of the most extreme activities mankind has dreamed up, including Google's new Jump program, and as a result its the new Qi charger product offers nearly first-person view of what it's like to do those things from the safety of your couch.

As cool as it is to watch those videos, GoPro cameras can be used for a whole lot more than diving off of something or spinning around someone in spectacular fashion. The sheer number of options you have available to you with one of these little cameras is impressive, but accessing those settings from the camera itself is more than a little obnoxious. If you're in an environment where it is convenient, the GoPro app for Android is a much better idea.

Here's how it works.
