Foursquare is rolling out an update to their app that removes the requirement for new users to setup up an account or set customizations before they can start searching for places to visit and check out.

If you’re the proud owner of a Moto E and you registered yourself as a member of the Motorola Feedback Network, you should have received an invitation for a new soak test by now.

However, it’s important to bear in mind that this is a test version of the upgrade, and some issues may occur.
While we’re still waiting on Samsung to get its Lollipop update pushed out to all variants of the Galaxy S 5, last year’s flagship is beginning to see the 5.0 update rollout. Samsung’s Galaxy S 4 has started receiving the Lollipop upgrade, at least in India.
The update brings all of Google’s 5.0 improvements, including the Material Design aesthetic, but you’ll also get a handful of bug fixes, performance improvements, and better battery life.
Thanks to a response to a tweet asking for an update from Motorola Support, we now have some information on why the Motorola Moto X 2013 has not been updated to Android Lollipop yet. The lack of an update for the Moto X 2013 is becoming increasingly frustrating for owners of those devices as they have seen several Motorola devices that one might think would be further back in the line either getting the Lollipop treatment or about to get it. According to the Motorola Support tweet, the cause of the delay is in the chipset used in the device.
