Is your Android phone rooted? [Poll of the Week]


Last week’s poll summary: Out of over 14,300 total votes, 45% of our readers said they need at least 64 GB of on-board storage in their smartphones. 29.4% said they’d be okay with just 32 GB, and 15.7% said they need a massive 128 GB of local storage in their phones. Only 5.5% of our readers said they can get by with 16 GB, and 2.6% said they’d be okay with only 8 GB of storage space.

Rooting may not be as popular in the Android world as it once was, but there are still a number of great reasons to go down this path. With a rooted Android phone, you can get rid of carrier bloatware, create backups, overclock or underclock your device, and much more. There are also device-specific reasons for rooting your Android device, such as remapping your Galaxy S8’s Bixby button to open Google Assistant without the need for a separate app.

Benefits of rooting your Android phone or tablet

March 7, 2017

But as the Android operating system progresses over time, many would argue there’s much less reason to root. Google and other OEMs have been doing a good job at bringing what used to be root-only features to Android. For instance, many people used to root their devices to get more customization options out of the phone’s software, but now manufacturers are including built-in theming engines in with their Android skins. Plus, rooting your Android device opens up a number of compatibility issues, especially when it comes to mobile payment and banking apps.

So, is your Android phone rooted? Why or why not? Be sure to cast your vote in the poll attached below, and let us know your thoughts on rooting in the comment section. We look forward to hearing what you have to say!

A rumored Motorola tablet could have a feature long awaited by many Android users


Android tablets have not been the best when it comes to actually getting work done. Even with the multiple window support for apps in Android 7.0 Nougat, its hard to switch between them for work. It’s much easier if you have a Windows laptop or tablet. Now, there’s word that an upcoming tablet from Motorola might have a feature that could make working with multiple apps easier.

March 18, 2017

The report comes from Android Police, who received a slide that shows off this feature from an unnamed but trusted source. The slide shows that this tablet will have a productivity mode, which will allow for Android apps to be pinned on the navigation bar. The slide indicates that users should be able to switch between those apps by tapping on their icons in the nav bar. In theory, this should allow people to switch from a word processing app to a note taking app quickly without having to go to the normal Android home screen.

Keep in mind that this description is just based on what’s shown in the slide. It’s possible there’s more to this “productivity mode” than is shown in this single leaked image. The article also doesn’t reveal anything else about this future Motorola tablet. We don’t know its hardware specs, its size or weight. We also don’t have a release date or price tag. All of this could affect how well this “productivity mode” will work in the real world.

By the way, this product, if it comes to market, will be the first such tablet from Motorola since the release of the Droid Xyboard in 2011, although Motorola’s parent company Lenovo has been selling a number of current Android and Windows tablets.

This new Motorola device could finally bring a work-capable Android tablet to market that may be able to rival the iPad Pro or Microsoft’s Surface products.

Assuming that this new mode will work the way we think it will (and admittedly that’s a big assumption) this new Motorola device could finally bring a work-capable Android tablet to market that may be able to rival the iPad Pro or Microsoft’s Surface products. Most Android tablets are designed to watch content, but a “productivity mode” could offer businesses, schools and other customers a way to actually get stuff done on a tablet. This is something that not even Google has been able to do with its own Nexus 9 and Pixel C tablets, so it will be very interesting to see if Motorola can offer its own solution.

In the meantime, what do you think about this leaked slide? Will this future Motorola tablet really offer a better multitasking experience? Let us know what you think in the comments!

Riven, the sequel to Myst, is now available to explore on Android


Riven, the heavily hyped sequel to Cyan Worlds’ breakthrough graphic adventure game Myst, is now out for Android.

The game basically begins where Myst left off, as you explore a mysterious series of islands full of odd looking artifacts, while you also search for clues to unlock puzzles. The Android version includes features such as a “Bookmark” system so you can quickly save and restore your progress in Riven if you decide to take a break. You can also zoom in anywhere in the game to get more information and clues, and there are even “hot spot” hints that will help out if you get stuck.

Since the game is being released in the Google Play Store, you will also get access to Google Play achievements that can be unlocked, along with an integrated hint guide. Noodlecake has priced the Android version of Riven at just $ 3.99 in the Google Play Store, with no other in-game purchases or ads, and that’s an excellent value for one of the best point-and-click adventure games ever made.

Google releases Android Things Developer Preview 3


Google has released the third developer preview of Android Things, the company’s platform that offers APIs to developers to help them build smart devices.

Leveraging Android Things, developers can develop for Internet of Things and take advantage of regular updates, Google services, and most importantly, a secure platform. The Developer Preview 3 introduces a few enhancements to improve the features available to developers.

What is Android Things? – Gary explains

January 13, 2017

As of Developer Preview 3, Android Things now supports all Android Bluetooth APIs for android.bluetooth and android.bluetooth.le packages across all supported devices. The improvements mean that developers can leverage Bluetooth as if it were an Android smartphone enabling the full range of Bluetooth capabilities.

In addition, USB Host Support has been added to Android Things to provide the same functionality that has been part of Android since version 3.1. USB Host allows a regular user space application to communicate with USB devices without root privileges or support needed from the Linux kernel.

The introduction of these two features in Developer Preview 3 bridges the gap yet further towards integrating the functionality we all know and love in Android into Internet of Things. With IoT devices quickly finding a place in everyone’s home, it’s good to see Google help provide a standardized platform to develop on that will hopefully improve accessibility and interoperability.

To download images for Developer Preview 3, you can visit the Android Things download page and also join Google’s IoT Developers Community on Google+ to connect with others interested in Android Things.

Metroid-inspired shooter Morphite finally coming to Android this spring


Developer Crescent Moon Games first announced Morphite, its upcoming mobile sci-fi shooter, in May 2016. Today, the developer revealed that the game will finally become available for Android devices sometime in the late spring of 2017.

10 most addictive games for Android

4 weeks ago

The developers took a lot of their inspiration from Nintendo’s Metroid series, particularly the more modern Metroid Prime shooters. It also has some elements from games like Ratchet and Clank, and Turok. in Morphite, your player character has been assigned to a mission that will take her to a total of seven different planets, The game’s environments will be randomly generated, which hopefully means no two players’ experiences will beexactly alike. Your player character will also gain new abilities and skills as she goes through the game. There’s even supposed to be space combat and trading features.

Your goal is to explore all of these planets, scan and collect resources, discover and sometimes fight a number of alien creatures and much more. Morphite’s art style has a low polygon count, but based on the screenshots provided by the developer, it looks like it will still be a beautiful game to check out.

Hopefully Morphite will be worth the wait. The game looks like it will also be a bit like No Man’s Sky, in terms of its procedurally generated worlds. Let’s just hope that Morphite has none of the issues that surrounded the launch of No Man’s Sky. What do you think of this game at this early stage? Let us know in the comments!

Traffic Rider

Price: Free with in-app purchases

Traffic Rider probably isn’t actually a racing game. It’s an infinite runner with missions that give it enough of a racing game feel that we felt the game could be on the list. It features a first person view as your ride motorcycles up the freeway collecting points, completing missions, and earning in-game cash. The graphics are pretty good and the controls work well. The first person perspective adds some genuine thrill as you dodge traffic. The thrill won’t last forever, but it’s a free game so it’s worth a shot.

Android O will finally bring native notification badges [Diving into Android O]


One of the rumors about Android O was that this update would finally bring iOS-like notification badges to stock Android, and it looks like that will indeed be the case.

Google officially announces Android O, Developer Preview images live now

13 hours ago

iOS has had notification badges for a very long time now: it’s those small numbers above your app icons – whether it’s on your home screen on in your app drawer – that indicate how many unread emails or text messages you have among others. Some Android manufacturers brought that feature to Google’s OS with their own skins and launchers (most notably Samsung), but until now, stock Android didn’t have this feature.

Looking at the Developer Preview released earlier today, it’s clear that the upcoming OS will have native support built in for notification badges.

Of course, with the recently-announced Android O, that’s about to change. Looking at the Developer Preview released earlier today, it’s clear that the upcoming OS will have native support built in for notification badges. Once you go into the info panel of an application, there is a toggle that says, “Show badge.” Currently, no apps have this feature enabled, so we have no idea what Google’s take on it will look like compared to Apple’s or other Android manufacturers’, but we will be sure to keep you updated once we learn more.

Super Mario Run will finally begin running on Android starting March 23


Over three months after it was first released for iOS, Nintendo will finally bring its hit mobile game Super Mario Run to Android devices worldwide on Thursday, March 23. The launch comes several weeks after another Nintendo mobile game, the fantasy tactical-RPG Fire Emblem: Heroes, launched for both Android and iOS in early February.

Best action games for Android!

February 5, 2017

Nintendo of America’s Twitter account confirmed the Android launch date, which also stated that Super Mario Run will be getting a version 2.0.0 update as well.  The update will add new playable characters to the game.

Nintendo’s game will give Android players a way to control one of the company’s most well known characters, Mario, in an endless running style of game. You will have to keep him moving through a number of 2D worlds that are similar in style to levels that can be found in the classic Super Mario Bros. console game series.

While Super Mario Run has received mixed reviews from iOS players since it was first released in December, that didn’t stop them from downloading it 78 million times between its launch and the end of January 2017. About 5 percent of those free demo downloads were turned into the full version of the game for a one-time in-app fee of $ 9.99. It’s likely that the Android version will stick with that business model. You can go ahead and pre-register for the game at the Google Play Store, so you will get an alert when Super Mario Run is available to download.

Nintendo has already announced plans to launch a mobile version of one of its most popular console game titles, Animal Crossing, sometime in its next fiscal year, which officially begins in April 2017. While the company initially resisted releasing games for smartphones, it now says it will launch between two to three new mobile games per year.

5 Android apps you shouldn’t miss this week! – Android Apps Weekly


Welcome to the 182nd edition of Android Apps Weekly! Here are the big headlines from the last week:

  • Capcom is apparently working on bringing four more classic games to mobile. One of them is 1942, a classic top-down shooter that many people enjoyed back in the day. So far, Capcom has botched six Megaman releases this year so we’re hoping that this attempt goes a little bit better. We don’t have a time frame a release date just yet. We just know that they’re working on it.
  • Twitch received an update this week. In the update is a new thing called Pulse. Pulse is a lot like Facebook’s Timeline except for video streamers. It’ll make it easier for affluent members of the community to share clips, highlights, and even stuff like schedules. Followers can see these things and interact more. It adds a bit of nuance to Twitch’s otherwise cut and dry experience. It should be rolling out right now.
  • Google Play announced their first original podcast this week. It’s called City Soundtracks. It’s essentially a podcast version of VH1’s Behind the Artist. Each episode will focus on one artist and their hometown. Most are calling it an attempt for Google Play to promote its own service from within. However, it does sound genuinely interesting. It launched on March 8th with three episodes. It’s on Google Play now if you want to try it out.
  • Fireproof Games announced that a new Room game is coming. It’s called The Room: Old Sins. Like its predecessors, it’ll be a mix of an escape game and a puzzle game. There isn’t a lot of information available yet. However, we know it’ll take place in a house and will feature a very creepy dollhouse. There isn’t a definitive release date just yet. We just know that they’re working on it.
  • Word around the digital grapevine is that Spotify is preparing a lossless Hi-Fi option. Some users have reported seeing a prompt to upgrade to the new service. The prices ranged from an additional $ 5 to $ 10 for some. The likely explanation is that they’re testing to see what prices people like. This will put them directly in competition with Tidal as the only two companies that do lossless streaming. Also, Spotify announced that they’ve hit 50 million paid subscribers.

There you can find a bunch of stuff we didn’t have space for here, like a big Pokemon Go update that’s coming soon, Google Maps promoting the new King Kong movie, and Nintendo’s Joy-Con controllers actually working on Android.

However, going pro will allow you to customize the corners and it’ll remove the advertising. It’s a little thing, but sometimes the little things can be fun. It’s free to download if you want to check it out.

Unworded

Price: $ 3.99
DOWNLOAD ON GOOGLE PLAY
Unworded is a narrative puzzle game. In this one, you’ll be tasked with little puzzles where you build objects out of letters. You’ll do stuff like use a J to make the handle for an umbrella or use an H to make smoke stacks on a boat. Along with the puzzles is a little narrative story that gets told to you as you complete levels. It’s an entertaining game, although we would’ve liked to see a bit more complexity in some of the puzzles. It’s $ 3.99, but there are no in-app purchases to get in your way.

BritBox

Price: Free / $ 6.99 per month

BritBox is a new video streaming service. It’s for US residents only and that’s unfortunate. However, those with access can pick up a ton of TV shows, movies, and programs created in the UK. As a service, it seemed to work fairly well. We watched several shows without any buffering or lag problems. The UI isn’t much to look at, but it’s still pretty easy to move around. About the only real downside is a lack of super hit shows like Top Gear, Dr Who, Weakest Link, and some others. It’s $ 6.99 per month if you’re interested.

Shadowmatic

Price: Free / $ 2.99
DOWNLOAD ON GOOGLE PLAY
Shadowmatic is a new puzzle that focuses on shadows. It works by placing a random object in front of a bright light. Your job is to twist and turn the object around until the shadow turns into a picture of something. The game includes over 100 levels, achievements, an arcade mode, hints, and more. You can get the first 14 levels for free and then you’ll be asked to pay $ 2.99 for the rest of the game through an in-app purchase. It’s fun, kid friendly, and the graphics in this one aren’t half bad.
