Good calendar apps are actually quite plentiful on both Android and iOS (more-so the latter). That said, we’re never content with “staying put” and always happy to see new and unique features added to something as mundane and ritual as a calendar. And today, Sunrise Calendar app hopes to woo you over with a pretty slick new feature as part of their version 4.0 rollout. Specifically, Sunrise 4.0 for Android and iOS now features a new, custom keyboard dubbed “Meet”. Basically, it’s a way for users to quickly glance at and schedule meetings via the keyboard section of the screen…

Have you been on the fence with Android Wear watches either because of lack of 1st gen hardware pleasing you or waiting for price drops? Well, here’s something to entice you. Woot is selling “Factory Reconditioned” (refurbs) Moto 360s for $129 complete with manufacturer backed warranty. While some may not like the idea of buying someone else’s mistake (whether hardware damage or buyers remorse), it’s a pretty simple way to generally walk out the door with a still awesome piece of gadgetry on the cheap. Even with 2nd gen products coming up in the next couple months, $130 isn’t too…

By itself, Hulu is awesome. For $9.99/month you get access to a ton of awesome TV shows and movies. But you know what’s better than $9.99/month? Free. But it’s not Hulu or some uber consumer conscious entity giving customers access to Hulu pro bono… it’s AT&T. That’s right. Under a new partnership/deal, AT&T is going to allow their customers to access Hulu’s catalog pro bono beginning “later this summer”. There is one sticking point, though. To consume all the free Hulu, you’ll need to use an AT&T branded app. You won’t be able to simply flip open the Hulu app…

While Samsung, LG, HTC, et. all have been pumping out increasingly awesome flagship devices, there is a certain sector of the market that lives and breathes for nothing more than pure, unadulterated Google hardware + software. The Nexus line of phones have a small buy loyal following. That said, while the Nexus 5 won a ton of praise for its overall value and performance, the Nexus 6 has been a bit more niche, even for something as niche as the Nexus line. First and foremost, as vocal as lovers of giant (~6″) screens will protest, such sizes are not the…

If you’re an LG G3 owner and want to partake of most of the G4’s system app goodness, there’s no a way. As is usual with this sort of stuff, XDA can be the receiver of all thanks and praises. Specifically, XDA dev member “LastStandingDroid” has done all the leg work. That said, there are a couple things to make note of. First and foremost, (and probably the biggest question in your minds) while the camera does work, the full-on manual mode is only partially working. (Damn drivers!) Second, you’ll need to have the V20l (Lollipop version) firmware for the…

There has been a lot of talk about the LG G4 over the last few weeks. And for good reason. It’s a fantastic phone. We’ve had one since early last week and are working on finishing up our review. In the meantime, though, a lot has been said about the lack of QuickCharge 2.0 support that LG themselves had claimed wasn’t made available because the bigger battery was the primary focus. But as of this morning, Android Central has confirmed with LG that QuickCharge 2.0 is in fact supported, and that they simply didn’t include a QuickCharge 2.0 capable charger…

While we’ll always point to the (factual) statement that “specs aren’t everything”, they’re certainly something we follow closely and care about. As such, every time info starts trickling out of a next-gen mobile slab of silicon, we get all kinds of excited. Hey, we’re geeks. That’s what we do. Today, it’s all about Qualcomm. While they’re currently going through a rough patch with the 808/810, hope is on the horizon. Following closely behind Mediatek’s announcement of 10 and 12-core mobile CPUs, new info is leaking out regarding Qualcomm’s upcoming 10-core chip, the 818. The arrangement for the 818 will be…

For better or worse, Apple’s new super thin 12″ Macbook has a single port. While road warriors and those searching for the ultimate in simplicity, it’s a dream. Power users that also happen to favor small footprints and lightweight gadgets on the other hand, are going to find some 1st gen growing pains cropping up. Most notably, how the hell do you plug everything in? Adapters! While Apple’s official adapters for the new Mac are expensive (read: overpriced) and rather limited, the 3rd party market will quickly rush in to provide better and more useful solutions. Exhibit A: Hub+ As…

There’s an inherent perk in the crop of $0 down, pay over the course of 12-20 months cellular plans. While it’s basically leasing a phone, those of you who will gladly pay the premium (don’t kid yourself, carriers are making out like bandits with these plans) can still get a new phone fairly frequently and not go through the hassle of selling your old device. Along the same lines, bringing your own phone to a carrier has first and foremost, the perk of not requiring anything more than a SIM card and a active plan. You’re free of contracts and…

While the Nexus line is the tried and true Android purists dream, Motorola manages to toe a tiny (and rarely traversed) line with their Android devices. They’re one of the few big name manufacturers that don’t put much of any skin at all on top of Android. Instead, Motorola “differentiates” by way of software features added into Android and not on top of. It’s a key difference but one that makes all the difference. That said, as other manufacturers continue pulling back their own UI and letting more of Android proper show through, the argument about stock vs skinned becomes…
