A Wiki-Watch?  Now that’s cool

A Wiki-Watch? Now that’s cool

For me, this is what the Android Operating System and Android Wear is all about; community minded developers with an idea being able to deliver it to users in a way that suits the user. Attopedia is, I have to say, one of the coolest apps for Android Wear to date. It’s a Wikipedia interface for your Android Wear watch, and it’s[Read More…]

How to fix missing buttons and a broken notification shade on Android L

I found that the first time I flashed Android L, a curious bug appeared — my home and recents buttons disappeared, and the notification shade refused to slide down. It seems I’m not alone; this bug only appears when upgrading/flashing Android L without wiping.

HTC Desire 816 — Review

There’s long been a split in the market between the “flagship” phones manufacturers launch with much pomp and circumstance like the Galaxy S5 or One (M8) and the second-tier devices like the Galaxy Ace or F Series.
