Android Police is now a Twitch affiliate, Amazon Prime subscribers can support us for free

Thursday, October 4th, 2018

We launched a Twitch channel earlier this year, designed to be the new home of the Android Police Podcast. Since then, we've started a second weekly show (on Tuesday nights), where we answer questions from live viewers. Now our Twitch channel is an affiliate, meaning you can support our live content with Twitch subscriptions - at no cost to yourself, if you have Amazon Prime.

For those of you not familiar with Twitch, you can follow a channel for free (you'll get alerts when it goes live), but you can also pay for a subscription.

On August 2, Apple became the first US company to reach a total market capitalization of $1 trillion. Now, just a month and change later, Amazon has done the same — however briefly. The online retail behemoth's stock hit a new high of $2,049.50 per share around 11:30 a.m., Eastern time this morning, momentarily nudging its market cap over the trillion-dollar line.

Following its new peak, Amazon's stock immediately began to tumble, coming to rest at $2,024.67 around 12:30 p.m.

An update on the Android Police Podcast and our Twitch channel

Friday, August 10th, 2018

The Android Police Podcast has been running semi-regularly since 2012, but earlier this year we implemented some changes. Previously, the live streams were only available on the AP Podcast YouTube channel, with audio versions hosted on SoundCloud (and available through Play Music/iTunes/Pocket Casts/etc.).

We launched a Twitch channel in May, where we stream the AP Podcast every Thursday at 5:30 PM Pacific Time (8:30 PM Eastern). We now have almost 3K followers - thank you for that!

Apple has become America’s first trillion-dollar company

Thursday, August 2nd, 2018

We're pretty keen on Android news here, but some things outside our immediate purview are significant enough to be worth mentioning. Here's one: today, Apple became the first US company to surpass a total market capitalization of $1 trillion (trillion as in a thousand billions).

Market capitalization, or market cap, is the total combined value of all of a publicly traded company's outstanding shares. Apple's stock price climbed to a new high of $208.38 around 2 p.m., Eastern time today, pushing its market cap past that $1 trillion mark.

Jenny McCarthy doesn’t know what her Google Home sounds like, assumes it’s a ghost

Thursday, July 19th, 2018

Actress Jenny McCarthy had a bit of a supernatural encounter this week, sort of. After checking herself out in the mirror in a room she believed to be otherwise unoccupied, she heard a little ditty play. Noting there was nobody sitting at the nearby piano, the renowned science skeptic proceeded to freak out, calling for her husband to let him know what was going on. Thankfully, she had a Nest Cam set up in the room, from which she promptly pulled the footage to post online as proof that her house is "HAUNTED!"

The majority of Facebook commenters seem to agree with Jenny's assessment that the spirit of a dead person was possessing her piano, with at least one viewer claiming to have actually seen a ghost in the video.

Toolbox for Play Store v2.3 improves Google’s awful new screenshot gallery

Wednesday, May 23rd, 2018

The desktop Play Store site was updated in March, and perhaps the most annoying aspect of the new design was the screenshot gallery. Even though the full-screen lightbox is nice, the embedded gallery requires constantly clicking the left/right arrows to scroll. We updated our Toolbox browser extension to support the new Play Store site last month, and a new update vastly improves the screenshot gallery.

Version 2.3 of our browser extension is now rolling out, and it has a new optional feature called 'Better screenshot gallery'.

Saturday, May 12th, 2018

Ever got one of those annoying robocalls, but the number looked local or even familiar? Well, those of us that have might have some modicum of vindication. Yesterday, the FCC issued a $120 million fine to Adrian Abramovich, who was found to have made almost 100 million spoofed phone callsabout a timeshare or other travel-related things.

Proposed in the summer of 2017, this is the largest forfeiture ever imposed by the Commission.

Our browser extension, ‘Toolbox for Google Play Store,’ now works with the new Play Store site

Tuesday, April 17th, 2018

We released our browser extension, 'Toolbox for Google Play Store,' near the end of 2016. It was designed to make the Play Store website much better, with direct links to APKMirror/AP/AppBrain for each app and the ability to sign up for beta programs with one click. The first major update was released in October of last year, adding Firefox for Android support and improved APKMirror integration.

We're happy to announce that Toolbox v2.2 is now rolling out to Chrome and Firefox users (Opera should approve it soon).
