  • Ultimate Ears BLAST and MEGABLAST are soon getting Spotify Connect, grouping, and stereo mode

  • Here’s what’s new in the big 3D Creator 2.0 update for Xperia phones

    The update includes selfie scans, 4K textures, and more.

    During MWC 2018, Sony announced a laundry list of new features coming to its 3D Creator app that was first introduced on the Xperia XZ1 and XZ1 Compact last August. Those features are now arriving on Xperia devices thanks to the big 2.0 update rolling out to the Play Store now, and there’s a lot to check out.

    The most notable addition to 3D Creator 2.0 is the ability to create 3D models of your face using only your phone’s selfie camera. You previously needed to have someone scan a model of your head using the rear camera, but now you can do it yourself while cutting down on time and the need for a helping hand.

    You can still go back to the old method if you prefer, and no matter which way you create your 3D model, the update now allows you to share it directly to Facebook or order a physical copy of it that Sony will 3D-print for you.

    Last but certainly not least, 3D Creator now uses “post-scan cloud processing” to cre…

  • Dynamite Headdy is the latest SEGA Forever release to land on the Play Store

    Nokia 2

    See at Amazon

    Right on the dot at $99, the Nokia 2 is simply the best low-cost phone you can buy. It features a sleek and sturdy design with a metal frame, along with a 1.3GHz quad-core processor and a near-stock build of Android. It’s a bit lacking internally, with just 1GB of RAM and 8GB of storage, but the clean software keeps it running smoothly, and you can expand its storage with a microSD card.

    The 5-inch 720p display is fairly impressive as well, but where you’ll really be wowed is with the 4100mAh battery, which easily manages two days of moderate usage. It also has a surprisingly decent 8MP primary camera, as well as a 5MP selfie shooter.

    Bottom line: The Nokia 2 offers clean software and speedy performance for just a Benjamin.

    One more thing: Nokia has promised an upgrade to Android 8.1 Oreo soon, bringing the Nokia 2 far more up to d…

  • Android needs to adopt gesture navigation sooner rather than later

    It hardly seems that long, but nearly ten years ago, the world’s first Android smartphone was announced. Android in 2008 really was barely recognizable as the operating system we know and love today, and the way we navigated that operating system was pretty different, too.

    The HTC G1, or Dream as it was known in some markets, was equipped with a slew of hard buttons and even a trackball (yes, a trackball), though it also offered a full touchscreen and a slide-out keyboard.

  • Best Microsoft apps for Android

    Microsoft apps have come a long way on Android.

    Microsoft essentially shunned Android and iOS for several years, but with Satya Nadella taking the helm in 2014 and adopting a mobile-first stance, the company has turned its attention to bringing its apps and services to rival platforms. From heavy-hitters like Office to side projects developed by employees in their free time under the Microsoft Garage label, Microsoft has a lot to offer on Android.

    Microsoft Office

    Microsoft made the Android and iOS versions of Office free in 2014, opening up the floodgates for its adoption on these platforms.

    Standalone apps for Word, Excel, and PowerPoint debuted in 2015, allowing users to quickly edit documents, spreadsheets, and presentations on the go. Basic editing functionality is available for all users, but if you want advanced features — inserting section breaks, viewing file history, customizing headers and footers in Word — you’re going to have to subscribe to Office 36…
