Instant Apps now on 500 million Android devices

August 18th, 2017

Instant Apps now available on 500 million Android devices.

Instant Apps are a way for developers to provide a lightweight, modularized portion of their full app experience when a user opens specific search results. The user has to enable Instant Apps in the Settings menu before the feature will work, however. Announced at Google I/O 2016, the feature was made available to all developers after this year’s I/O.

Android Police reports the feature is now available to 500 million users, so developers should feel encouraged to start building for the feature. Instant Apps are available for any user running Android 6.0 and later, or 45.8% of all Android users. While that’s not a majority, that’s still a very large number of users and will continue to grow in the future.

Have you stumbled across an Instant App you like yet? Let us know down below!

Tekken is coming to Android and you can pre-register for the release today

August 18th, 2017

That’s right, Bandai Namco has just announced that they’ll be releasing an all new Tekken game for Android sometime soon. You can pre-register for the title today on this Tekken Mobile website. While I’m sure plenty of you 90’s fighting game fans will be overjoyed with this announcement, the question remains, how will Bandai Namco monetize this mobile version of their popular franchise? Will this be a premium release, or will it be more of the same free-to-play content we have all come to expect?

Where to buy the Essential Phone

August 18th, 2017

It’s hot, it’s hyped, and it’s now on sale.

If you’re looking for a high-end phone, it’s hard to ignore the gravity of the Essential Phone right now. When a company run by Andy Rubin releases a phone, people take notice — and they’ll also have to take out their wallet, because the Essential Phone is a cool $699.

It’s available in the U.S. and Canada, with a variety of retailer options and a few good deals. Here are all of the details.


The U.S. is obviously Essential’s dominant launch market, where you have multiple retail options.


Amazon has both black moon and pure white colors available for pre-order, though it isn’t offering a time frame on the latter’s delivery. Pricing is set at $699 with free shipping for Prime members.

Alt-Right network Gab removed from the Play Store

August 18th, 2017

Google has removed alt-right social network Gab from the Play Store.

Google has removed alt-right social network Gab from the Play Store, the social network shared on Twitter. This comes days after Nazis protested in Charlottesville, VA, leaving one woman dead after a protester drove a van into a crowd of counter protesters. Two police officers also perished when a police helicopter crashed during the protests.

Gab stated the application was removed for violating the Play Store’s hate speech policy. That policy states:

We don’t allow the promotion of hatred toward groups of people based on their race or ethnic origin, religion, disability, gender, age, veteran status, or sexual orientation/gender identity.

Android holds around 53% of the market share for mobile operating systems in the U.S, which is not large enough for this to be an antitrust concern. Nor is it a First Amendment issue, as some commenters on Twitter have pointed out. The First Amendment only forbids the gover…

August 18th, 2017

Amazon has a really good music service that you might have overlooked. Here’s what you need to know about Amazon Music.

Fun fact you might not be aware of: Amazon has a really good music service. It’s called, as you might expect, Amazon Music. And just like Apple Music or Google Play Music or Spotify or Pandora or whatever, it, uh, plays music. Lots and lots of music.

That’s not really the exciting part. The real reason you might want to consider Amazon Music comes down to the options, and the myriad ways you could end up listening to it.

Let’s dive in.
