For those of you who stand on the other side of Amazon and supply your goods to the world through the popular shopping site, Amazon has released its official Seller app onto the Google Play Store. Now sellers everywhere can easily check on their merchandise on the go with convenience. The app enables sellers to manage inventory, search for new items to sell, estimate the profitability of items before listing them, message customers, and have access to Amazon support. While this may not directly benefit most of us, when sellers are more able to provide a more efficient experience to us, everyone benefits. Hit the break for screenshots and download links.

Video of color options for Nexus 5 is fake

179787-whitenexus5

Yesterday, a video of color options for the Nexus 5 in the Play Store appeared online. Since, it has been discovered that the photos are fake and have been Photoshopped. There are some other hints in the video as well, as the Play Store behaves differently in the video. When you go to the real product page and try to switch between colors, a separate page opens, with a different URL— nothing changes in the video, signaling that it is fake.

Moto X camera app now being updated through the Play Store

Motorola Camera

We now take a break from all this Nexus nonsense to talk about the Moto X’s camera app.

When certain pieces of hardware on devices need to be upgraded, we usually see OTA software updates. However, Motorola is now updating the Moto X camera app through the Play Store.

The device’s camera was one of the weaker features of the phone at launch, and the last OTA update to all Moto X variants greatly improved the performance. But now, Moto has decided that if they want to update the camera (and maybe some other things) more frequently, the faster way to do so is through the Play Store. (Basically, the carriers are constantly getting in the way.)

This is a very welcome change, as maybe other manufacturers will catch on and do the same with many features of the phone that don’t really require an OTA update.

Here’s what the update brings:

  • Brightened camera viewfinder so it’s easier to see
  • Enabled Quick Capture for more Enterprise users IT policies
  • Bug fixes

Hit the break for the link to the app in the Play Store.
