F-Droid, the open-source app repository, has been updated to v1.0

Thursday, October 19th, 2017

If you are a big Android enthusiast, then you're probably familiar with the name F-Droid. If not, it's an extensive repository of open source apps, as well as the name of its accompanying client. Today that client has been updated to v1.0.

If you remember our coverage of v0.103, v1.0 should look pretty familiar. While there have been some significant changes behind the scenes, apart from a general improvement in performance and ease of use, you're not likely to notice much.

Wednesday, October 18th, 2017

Adobe's Max 2017 event was today, where the company announced plenty of new apps and updates for its Creative Cloud suite. While the spotlight was mainly on the desktop, the mobile apps have also received a few improvements as well. Lightroom for Android was updated with a tablet UI and enhanced search abilities, but the Photoshop Express app is receiving a few new features as well.

Watermarks

One feature missing from Lightroom for Android is the ability to save images with a watermark, which Lightroom on the desktop supports.

Adobe Lightroom for Android adds tablet UI, selective editing, intelligent search, and more [APK Download]

Wednesday, October 18th, 2017

For years, Adobe Lightroom has been the editor of choice for photographers. As opposed to Photoshop, which is more designed for pixel-level editing and layered images, Lightroom is geared towards manipulating photos. It's non-destructive, meaning that any changes can be easily reversed, and all of your edits are kept in the app's catalog.

Adobe has offered iOS and Android versions of Lightroom for a while now. You can select certain collections (aka albums) to sync to the cloud, for editing and viewing on the go.

DJI Android app update adds new features to the Mavic and Spark

Thursday, October 12th, 2017

DJI released an update to their Android app yesterday that adds a couple of features to the two newest drones in the DJI Family, the Spark, and the Mavic. With the new software, both devices now have Dynamic Home Point updating. The feature, when enabled, "allows the aircraft to continuously update the home point according to its current position while tracking a person in ActiveTrack mode."

The Mavic also picks up Quickshot mode, a feature that used to be exclusive to its younger brother, the Spark.

Some Pixel XL owners are having issues installing the October OTA, Google is looking into it

Wednesday, October 11th, 2017

This October's update isn't just about security patches, it also has some much-needed Bluetooth fixes. Unfortunately, some of us are having trouble actually installing this latest OTA. The difficulty seems to fall into two basic categories: those who haven't yet unenrolled from the beta and can't see the update, and those who can see the update but can't install it. The former is an easy fix (just exit the beta), but for those of us in the latter camp, Google is looking into it. 

Both Android Police's Artem and I ran into this issue on our Pixel XLs, and according to statements on Google's Product Forums, we aren't alone.

Sprint LG G6 gets CallingPLUS, a VoLTE-WiFi calling combo, in latest update

Wednesday, October 11th, 2017

If you're not a Sprint customer who's in-tune with all the carrier's quirks and features, you probably haven't heard of CallingPLUS. After all, only three phones currently support it - that is, until now. The LG G6 has become the fourth Sprint phone to support CallingPLUS with this latest update.

The G6 joins the ranks of Galaxy J7 Perx, LG Stylo 3, and Galaxy S8/S8+ in the CallingPLUS stables. What exactly does CallingPLUS entail, you ask?

October OTA for Pixels should fix some Bluetooth issues, additional patches coming soon

Tuesday, October 10th, 2017

Despite numerous software updates attempting to fix the problem, one bug has persisted on Google's Pixel and Pixel XL - Bluetooth. Ever since release, both phones have had problems connecting to (and staying connected to) Bluetooth devices, and the recent Android 8.0 Oreo update seemed to make things worse. Google is once again trying to fix the Pixels' Bluetooth woes.

Over the past three months, several threads on the Pixel Product Forum have been filled with Bluetooth bug reports from users.

Chrome OS is also getting a few visual tweaks for v61, which has started to roll out to users.

The first notable change is the new lock/login screen.

Philips rolling out Android 7.0 Nougat to its 2016 and 2017 TVs

Sunday, October 8th, 2017

Google doesn't allow manufacturers to heavily customize Android TV, but that hasn't stopped some companies from delivering updates slowly (coughSonycough). Philips' smart TVs have been stuck on Marshmallow, but that appears to be changing. The company has now started rolling out Android 7.0 Nougat to its 2016 and 2017 smart TVs.

Android TV 7.0 includes a few notable features like picture-in-picture support, 4K casting, multi-account support, and app recording.

Google Home’s new Night Mode will keep it from yelling at you at 2 AM

Tuesday, October 3rd, 2017

One of the more annoying aspects of the Google Home (or any smart speaker, really) is the response volume is static. Unlike a normal person, it won't talk to you at the same volume you are speaking. If you were blasting music earlier in the day and you forgot to turn it down later, asking to turn off a lamp later could result in an ear-popping "OK, TURNING OFF THE LAMP!"

Google created a preview program for the Google Home back in August, allowing users to test upcoming features.
