Hands-on: Battery Charge Limit for rooted devices does exactly what you expect

Saturday, August 12th, 2017

Those of us here at Android Police have a lot of phones, and that's putting it lightly. It's not just because we like basking in the light of a dozen tiny differently calibrated displays (though that is one of the unofficial perks). We actually need different hardware and software configurations on hand to test and compare against. Between device compatibility for new apps, checking APK releases for differences, and test environments, our desks end up being monuments/graves to recent phone history.

Sam Ruston’s new app Hurry is a beautiful countdown timer for events

Sunday, August 6th, 2017

Fans of Android developer Sam Ruston's applications, such as myself, will be excited to hear that he has just released one more. The app, called Hurry, is a countdown timer that uses notifications and widgets to help you keep track of upcoming events. It is a simple concept but executed with the developer's usual insane attention to detail, especially in relation to material design and animations. 

I gave the app a quick test drive today and found myself really enjoying it.

Hands-on with Adapticons: Making your own icons was never this easy or customizable

Wednesday, August 2nd, 2017

There was a time when I could spend hours setting up a new homescreen on my phone. Choosing a new wallpaper, finding the best icon placement and alignment, obsessing about icon pack zips and rars until I stumbled upon the perfect one for my setup, then adding and moving and removing widgets to fit with everything. Now, I just open Backdrops from time to time to get a new wallpaper and I keep the same homescreen setup without even bothering with icon packs.

Francisco Franco’s new app Gratus is a novel tool that reminds you to stop and appreciate life

Wednesday, July 19th, 2017

Today the well-known developer Francisco Franco has released a new app: Gratus. It's a bit hard to describe, but it's meant to provide you with appreciation and motivation when you might be feeling a bit down. The name itself means "grateful" in Latin, and it's an apt summary of the intended effect. Think of it as a repository for all the things you enjoy. 

The app is quite particular with what it does, but it does it well.

Hands-on with Hulu TV: Great, but I’m confused about the audience

Hulu TV Hero

Some of you might know that Hulu rolled out a Live TV service to their existing streaming platform. I've spent a bit of time checking it out (if you do things right, kids, watching TV can be work) and I think I'm in a good position to provide a reasonably educated opinion on the service. Overall, I'm a bit confused about who, exactly, it's for.

Thanks to some random dude on the internet, I was able to get access without having to pony up cash myself (Ryne <3's Devin).

Synology DiskStation DS416play review: Cloud who? Personal servers can be cool and feature-filled too

Saturday, April 22nd, 2017

This is one of the most difficult reviews I've had to write to date. I've been using the Synology DS416play for several months, yet everytime I sat down to start writing, I felt overwhelmed by what I should and shouldn't discuss and eventually found myself drifting to work on another simpler and more urgent news article. I love detailed reviews, I enjoy delving deep into every single feature a product offers and discussing its benefits and limitations, as evidenced by the lengthy reviews I've written on Android Police over the years.
