  • Google suspends Indian ‘Remove China Apps’ from the Play Store
    von Babu Mohan am Juni 3, 2020 um 7:06 am

    The app was found to violate the Play Store's Deceptive Behavior Policy. What you need to know Remove China Apps, which was the top trending app in India recently, has been removed from the Play Store. Since late May, the app was downloaded over 5 million times in the country. The app allowed users to delete all apps developed by Chinese companies from their phones. An app called Remove China Apps went viral in India last month, amid growing anti-China sentiments in the country. It crossed the 1 million downloads milestone within just ten days of its debut on the Play Store. It was also the top trending app on the Play Store in India for two days. The app has now been removed by Google for violating the Play Store's Deceptive Behavior Policy (via TechCrunch). The policy states that an app listed on the Play Store is not allowed to make any changes to the user's device settings or features outside of the app without the user's consent, and nor can it encourage users to remove ...

  • Nest users are getting free Nest Hubs and Nest Minis, here's why
    von Muhammad Jarir Kanji am Juni 3, 2020 um 2:17 am

    The Nest Hub codes, though, don't seem to be working. What you need to know Google is sending out promotional emails to Nest Aware subscribers. These offer either a free Nest Hub or a Nest Mini to those who've upgraded their plan to the company's newest subscriptions. Unfortunately, some users are reporting that their codes aren't working. Finally rolled out earlier this month, the new Nest Aware subscriptions make things a lot easier (and less expensive) if you have multiple Nest devices around the house. Helping you take advantage of that all-you-can-eat buffet, Google is even sending out emails to those who've upgraded to the new subscriptions with an offer for either a free Nest Hub or Nest Mini. The offer is available till August, though you will also need to be living in the U.S. to avail of it. Unfortunately, as our friends at 9to5Google report, many (if not all) of the Nest Hub coupons are not working. Our own Phil Nickinson received one such email (to the right), al... […]

  • The best Galaxy S20 Ultra Cases go beyond to protect your phone
    von Ara Wagoner am Juni 2, 2020 um 9:00 pm

    Samsung has supersized the Galaxy experience with the Galaxy S20 Ultra, and with that big beautiful 6.9-inch screen comes a larger and heavier phone than even last year's Galaxy Note 10+. While I can understand not wanting to bulk up your S20 Ultra, a case is not optional on a phone this big; you need a protective case to add grip to that big glass back and add some cushions or shock-absorbing bumpers to the corners. From clear and thin to big and functional, these are the best cases to buy your new flagship. Clear but sturdy Ringke Fusion X Staff pick $12 at Amazon $13 at Walmart Want to show off your S20 Ultra's glass-backed beauty while still protecting it from scratches, slips, and the oh-so-dreaded shatter?

  • Nobody likes dealing with phone calls, so here's how to block them all
    von Hayato Huseman am Juni 2, 2020 um 8:00 pm

    Smartphones can do just about anything these days — did you know they can even make phone calls? You've probably gotten your fair share of spam calls in the last few years, and many carriers are actively working to prevent spam and "robocalls" from happening, but some people don't want to receive calls at all. Whether you use VoIP services, carry a work phone that only needs access to data, or you prefer texting over calling, here's how you can quickly disable all incoming calls from ringing your phone. Phone used in this guide The best camera: Google Pixel 4 ($628 at Amazon) Get familiar with Do Not Disturb mode Do Not Disturb has been available since the release of Android Marshmallow way back in 2015. This feature makes it so you can either temporarily (or permanently) disable notifications from coming through. With Do Not Disturb enabled, you can set various rules and schedules for your phone to follow, muting notifications for certain contacts, time periods, and more. T... […]

  • OnePlus is no longer selling the unlocked 7T, just the T-Mobile version
    von Muhammad Jarir Kanji am Juni 2, 2020 um 7:13 pm

    The Snapdragon 855 phone is currently $100 off, though. What you need to know OnePlus has stopped listing the unlocked OnePlus 7T on its online U.S. store. Instead, the only version that's available now is the T-Mobile variant. It's unclear if the change is permanent or temporary. OnePlus' excellent 7T may not be the company's latest and greatest, but currently available at $499 for 8GB RAM + 128GB storage, all of it paired with a Snapdragon 855, it's definitely quite the steal. Unfortunately, however, the phone is no longer available to the majority of Americans at the moment, as the company has removed the unlocked variant of the phone from its online store. Instead, only the T-Moble version of the phone seems to be available on the company's online store. The silver lining? Available in both Froster Silver and Glacier Blue at just $499, the phone is $100 off its usual selling price. It's unclear at the moment whether the change is temporary — perhaps as a result of a stoc... […]

  • Cyberpunk 2077 Night City Wire event delayed to June 25
    von Samuel Tolbert am Juni 2, 2020 um 7:01 pm

    Holding off just a little while longer. What you need to know Night City Wire is an upcoming Cyberpunk 2077 event of some kind. It was previously scheduled to take place on June 11, 2020. The event has been pushed back due to the protests taking place right now. Night City Wire is now set for June 25, 2020. While CD Projekt Red has previously announced that it was holding a Cyberpunk 2077 event called Night City Wire on June 11, fans will be waiting a little bit longer to see what's in store. CD Projekt Red announced today that the event is being pushed back to June 25 in light of the ongoing protests against police brutality and racial injustice. We decided to move Night City Wire to Jun 25th. We still look forward to sharing new information about CP’77, but more important discussions are happening right now and we want them to be heard. We wholeheartedly stand against racism, intolerance and violence. Black Lives Matter.— Cyberpunk 2077 (@CyberpunkGame) June 2, 2020 C... […]

  • Get geeky with these awesome Android board games
    von Marc Lagace am Juni 2, 2020 um 7:00 pm

    Board games have been going through a renaissance over the past decade, and it doesn't take a lot of digging in the Google Play Store to see that's the case on Android as well. If you're having trouble getting everybody together under one roof or just don't have any more shelf space for another box, pick up your Android phone or tablet to grab these board games. It should be noted that finding highly-rated board games on the Play Store is an uphill battle. Whether it's because new updates broke the UI, fundamental aspects didn't get ported over correctly, or the spirit of the original was lost in translation, many of the board games here barely pass my muster. However, there are a few gems. We've also included a couple of great apps to have on hand when you do get the gaming crew together. And when you're done here, be sure to check out the Best Games for Android! The games Carcassone Sea Battle 2 Risk Ticket to Ride Splendor Wild Jack: Card Gobang Elder Sign: Omens Galaxy Tr... […]

  • Did you get an emergency alert on your Android phone? Here are the details
    von Andrew Martonik am Juni 2, 2020 um 6:53 pm

    Emergency alerts on your Android smartphone are a good thing — even if they are a bit annoying sometimes! Every so often — or frequently, depending on your tolerance level — you get an emergency alert on your phone. That horrible blaring of the emergency tone, the buzzing the vibration motor, and then the grim news. Someone's missing. Or there's a severe weather alert headed your way. Suddenly and without warning, your phone's scaring the hell out of you. It's bad enough during the day, and downright dreadful in the dead of night. And that's the idea. The U.S. carriers have worked with the federal government to come up with a way to push alerts to your Android smartphone to warn you about dangerous weather, missing persons or other matters of grave national importance. The point is they want you to see this information in hopes that it could save your life — or someone else's. Here's what you need to know about these emergency alerts and how you can control them on your A... […]

  • How to improve hand tracking on the Oculus Quest
    von Sean Endicott am Juni 2, 2020 um 6:00 pm

    Oculus recently rolled out hand tracking support for the Oculus Quest. The feature allows you to navigate menus and even play some games with nothing but your hands. It's a new and exciting feature for the Oculus Quest, but it's still relatively limited in terms of which games you can play. While Oculus improved the feature after a year in preview, there are a few things you can do to help get the best hand tracking experience. Products used in this guide Standalone VR: Oculus Quest ($400 at Best Buy) Darkness my old friend: Mellons Unisex Winter Knit Classic Solid Color Gloves (black) ($7 at Amazon) Light it up The Oculus Quest's hand tracking works with the headset's monochrome cameras. This is great because that means it doesn't require any external hardware. However, it also means that hand tracking on the Oculus Quest isn't as precise as dedicated VR gloves, at least for now. Oculus uses AI to make the experience better, but there's still some work to do. To get the best ... […]
