Motorola Camera Users Can Now Take Photos Using Volume Keys

Mar 21st AT 12:49 AM


Motorola has a reputation of late for making relatively few changes to the stock Android experience, but taking photos is one of the areas where the company has applied some of its own tender loving care. The app, which can activate with just a flick of the wrist, encourages users to take pictures by touching anywhere on the screen. Now those who would prefer a more tactile approach have that option as well. With version 3.2, users can take pictures using a smartphone’s volume keys instead.

What’s New
Capture photos using phone or headset volume key
Updated application will be compatible with Android™ 4.4.2, KitKat®

Asus Transformer Pad Gets First Official CyanogenMod 11

Mar 21st AT 12:43 AM

The Asus Transformer Pad TF701T launched with Android 4.2, with an update to 4.3 coming less than a month later. Unsurprisingly, an update to KitKat hasn’t arrived nearly as quickly. This could be disheartening, but as seasoned Android users have come to expect, a ROM speeding things along is usually on its way. CyanogenMod 11 is now available for the TF701T, proving users with a way to experience Android 4.4 on what is a pretty compelling device.


CyanogenMod 11 brings KitKat, but this is a nightly, so tread carefully. Any number of things could go wrong. Some things may need time to mature.

Preview Android Wear Launcher On Your Device

Mar 20th AT 1:46 AM


Today, we’ve got the Android Wear launcher (extracted from the emulator) as it currently exists. This is an early version of the home launcher that you’ll see on the Moto 360 and likely other wearable devices coming in the near future. The good news is we’ve quickly disassembled the APK to see if there are any interesting tidbits (there are), and the great news is you can download it below.

Inside the actual code, there are a few more exciting tidbits. First off, it appears Wear will support daydreams. The presumed application for this would be watch faces, which are also mentioned in the code.

Ouya Says Free-To-Try Is No Longer Mandatory

Mar 20th AT 12:13 AM


In the coming weeks, we’re going to let devs choose if they want to charge up front for their games. Now they’ll be able to choose between a free-to-try or paid model.

When we started OUYA, we originally decided against this. Free to Try seemed like an obvious choice for an open platform. We knew it appealed to gamers, but it turned out many devs had trouble meeting the requirement, didn’t want to make a demo, or weren’t sure how to monetize their game.

One of OUYA’s driving values has always been empowering devs.

We provide devs with a streamlined path to the TV. We facilitate an open Dev-to-OUYA community. We operate a super-tolerant submission-review process. We support an ever-expanding suite of middleware. We do all of these things in support of devs — to help them get their games to gamers.

Mar 19th AT 11:56 PM

Google’s official Android keyboard has just been updated in the Play Store without a new changelog, and you know what that means. Yes, time to go hunting. Although, the keyboard makes you painfully aware of at least one new feature when you first try to type something.

What’s New
That popup you see above is opened after the update when you tap the notice about personalization Google has helpfully tucked into the suggestion bar. It reads, “Personalization is on. Touch for info.” The Google Keyboard now pulls from all the data Google has on your typing to improve suggestions. You can shut it off if you don’t want it doing that, though. Here are the relevant strings in the APK.

Qualcomm – Snapdragon Processors Will Power New Android Wear Products

Mar 19th AT 4:48 PM


Earlier today Google announced Android Wear, an extension of the Android operating system for smartwatches and other wearable devices. We’re excited to share that we’ve been working behind the scenes with Google, and our OEM customers, to enable the development of a number of Android Wear-based devices that will be powered by Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ processors.

Qualcomm Technologies also has decades of experience designing for mobile devices that need great performance and connectivity, but also long battery life. Our highly integrated Snapdragon processors are designed from the ground up for the optimal balance of high performance and low power, ensuring that devices based on Snapdragon processors can deliver outstanding performance and user experiences while lasting longer between charges.

And we were a pioneer in wearables. Qualcomm’s Toq smartwatch, released last year, highlights the experience that the wearable category can provide. We are just at the beginning of showing how wearable devices can improves people’s lives.
