Fans of Flappy Bird may have been excited to download its sequel, Swing Copters, and then were either greeted by a cheap knock-off or disappointed to find that they had to sift through dozens of clones that were released before the official app even saw the light of day. Thankfully, Google has taken matters into their own hands and have removed all of the clones from the Play Store. Read more
It’s any techie’s dream. One charger for all (most) of their devices.
We’ve seen devices piled up on power-mats, but nothing really close to a three-way USB charger.
The USB plugs into the wall charger (as usual) on one end, and on the other, there three micro-USB plugs split from the original cable. With the $39.99 device, you’ll be sufficiently able to charge three devices at once — but is it worth it?
Many have argued that the market isn’t yet ready for a massive influx of smartwatches, but Samsung would disagree — and perhaps that’s all that matters.
We’ve already seen the Galaxy Gear, Gear 2, Gear 2 Neo, Gear Fit and Gear Live come from the manufacturer, and it appears that we should be expecting the arrival of the Gear 3 relatively soon.
Virtual reality is a hot topic these days, and it seems Samsung is dunking their toes in early. Some images of what appears to be Samsung’s rumored Gear VR have made their way onto the internet, conspicuously close to the upcoming IFA 2014 event. Bearing the model number SM-R320, the Gear VR is expected to compete with Sony’s upcoming Project Morpheus headset. The headset boasts the advantage of being developed in collaboration with Oculus VR, makers of the Oculus Rift, and is rumored to feature an OLED display.
Owners of the Galaxy S 5 in need of even more battery life can look to next month for an important purchase. On September 8, Mophie will ship its battery case for the Samsung flagship. The Galaxy S 5 has a 2800mAh battery and Mophie’s battery case will add an additional 3000mAh. It will be available in both black and white color options to match the device’s color.
It costs $99 and, as previously mentioned, will ship on September 8. Mophie has the accessory up for pre-order today.
Hit the break for the introductory video and the gallery.
Ever since Samsung announced its Level line of audio products, the Korean tech giant has been trying to tell consumers how brilliant and high-quality these products are. However, in case you weren’t enthused thus far, Samsung has decided to switch from telling to showing. Watch these video explanations (after the break) for why Samsung’s audio line is different from the competition. Read more
Just yesterday we heard rumors that Verizon was planning on launching a new app store for Android devices with the help of other wireless carriers and manufacturers. This wasn’t actually the first time that Verizon tried to make its own app store work (remember Vcast Apps, anyone?), but their last attempt was unsuccessful, to say the least. Despite that rumor, it looks like Verizon can see the writing on the wall, and they’re claiming they have no intention of creating any more app stores.
A Verizon spokesperson said they don’t want to bother creating another app store, saying the carrier has “been there, done that.” It’s very clear that consumers don’t want or need a carrier app store, so good on Verizon if they’re being truthful about this. Read more
Connected cars have been on everyone’s minds of late, but one problem keeps arising when considering merging mobile tech with your vehicle: upgrading. You may get a new tablet or phone every year or so, but a car? Maybe once or twice a decade. However, fear not, for Unimax has an answer. Read more
If you’re looking for a small and sleek Bluetooth speaker, you might want to check out the latest from Samsung. The Level Box mini offers high-quality sound in a compact metallic body.
It includes a 55mm stereo speaker along with a passive radiator. It’s compatible with all phones, but if you have the Samsung Level App, you will get Volume Control, Text-to-Speech, S Voice, and SoundAlive.
With every new phone comes new accessories, and the Galaxy Note 4 won’t be alone. It appears Samsung is working on an ultrasonic cover that could be utilized for those that have vision-related disabilities.
According to SamMobile, the cover will detect nearby objects from its ultrasonic sensor and provide feedback. Users will also be able to choose between three different levels: short, middle, and long.
An insider with a Note 4 prototype sent in the complete description from the accessory, of which you can see after the break.
