We saw the 8GB Nexus 7 drop from being available to coming soon a few days back, and well, as of this morning we have now seen the 16GB model do the same.
Malware has been around on Android for awhile, but over the last year things seem to have gotten better for Malware developers. 23 of the top 500 Google Play apps are considered malicious to some extend and Malware is up 580% across all Android downloading platforms. However, when you look at the numbers, it really isn’t that bad.
With only a couple of days left until the big reveal, those who are interested in getting the pure Google phone are already strategizing on ways to secure the Nexus 4. If you live in Canada, there’s a good chance that you’d be able to buy it off Google Play.
Sometime today, the 8GB Nexus 7 went from “In Stock” to “Coming Soon” in the Google Play Store. Could this mean that the 32GB Nexus 7 is on the way, or could it just be a lot of people who decided to buy the Nexus 7 when they saw how much even the cheapest iPad Mini would cost?
Just a few days ago we saw Samsung’s brand new Chromebook ultra-affordable models, the $249 Wi-Fi version and the $329 3G laptop. At that time we didn’t have any actual release dates for either model, but it looks like we now have good news for Chrome OS enthusiasts.
Ever since Android saw a total revamp of it’s pulldown notification system, I’ve been impressed. I’d always wondered, though, how could I create my own custom notifications? After doing some research, I discovered Notif.
Notif allows you to create four different types of custom notification, and it does it all for free. Interested? Find out more after the break.
Back in the day Google’s search engine made directory type sites (like Yahoo!) obsolete because now everything could be found using a search tern, but the Google Play Store is essentially a directory of apps. Every time I use it to try and find an app I think I am back in the mid-90s. Surely Google must be able to take the mighty power of its search engine and combine it with some clever technology (like the bits that power Google News) and come up with a better way for Android users to find apps. The fact that services like AppBrain exist means that Google has more it could do.
We’ve all been there, anxiously checking our phones, making sure we didn’t miss that important call we’ve been expecting. Maybe your wife is pregnant. Maybe you just interviewed for a new job.
With CDMA competitor Sprint already allowing customers to send Play Store purchases to their bill, it was probably only a matter of time before Verizon allowed it as well. Just yesterday, the Google Play Store itself confirmed that Verizon customers will soon be getting the feature. It is slated for the coming weeks.
The good news for Indian developers is that Google now allows them to submit paid apps and apps that make use of subscriptions and in-purchases. Up until now, Indian devs were only able to submit free apps to the virtual marketplace.
