Pokemon Go update fixes Pokemon catching bugs, introduces new ‘Nearby’ feature

Pokemon Go players were furious when Niantic ruined their gaming experience a little over a week ago by releasing an update for Android and iPhone that removed the nearby Pokemon tracking feature, but also by making Pokemon catching a lot harder than before. Niantic explained why it removed the tracker and why it killed third-party Pokemon mapping support, and promised to fix the Pokemon catching bug. On Monday night, they followed through.

Pokemon Go for iPhone (version 1.3.0) and Android (version 0.33) are available to download right away, bringing several important fixes to the game.

Quadrooter Qualcomm Android Security Flaws

New critical flaw makes even the most secure Android devices vulnerable to hacks

New critical flaw makes even the most secure Android devices vulnerable to hacks

Security researchers have discovered four serious Qualcomm chip flaws that hackers can take advantage of to gain full access to a person’s smartphone. The issues are yet to be patched on most devices, though Nexus handsets have received some security patches since the issues were first discovered.

Even so, some of the hottest Android devices available in stores, including the Galaxy S7, Galaxy S6, HTC One M9, HTC 10, Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, and Nexus 6 are already vulnerable. Even the BlackBerry DTEK50, touted as the “most secure Android smartphone,” can be hacked using these flaws. In all, over 900 million Android phones could be hacked. More →

Pokemon Go Catching Pokemon Bug

Niantic confirmed it’ll fix one of the most annoying Pokemon Go bugs yet

Niantic confirmed it’ll fix one of the most annoying Pokemon Go bugs yet

There are at least two major bugs plaguing your Pokemon Go experience, especially following the latest app update. Players are unable to use the built-in tracker to find Pokemon around them, and most of the maps “cheat” sites have been shut down. And when they do find Pokemon, catching them is more complicated than it used to be. Niantic, however, confirmed that it’d fix at least one of these two problems. More →

Google Maps Parking Information

Google Maps will make it easier to find a parking spot

By on August 4, 2016 at 7:45 AM.

Google Maps will make it easier to find a parking spot

Google Maps will not index all the available parking spots near your destination, or at least not yet. Such a feature would be a valuable addition to the popular mapping service, and we might see it roll out in the more distant future when parking availability for a location is updated in real-time. That said, Google Maps will make it easier for you to find a parking spot in an area you don’t know, by offering information about parking difficulty. More →

Chrome on Android now provides faster, more power efficient video playback

How many hours a week do you spend watching video on your smartphone? It’s an incredibly convenient way to digest clips from late night talk shows, news reports, sports highlights and more, but it’s also the easiest way to kill your battery.

That’s why Google has made it a priority to turn Chrome into the best video playback browser on Android with its latest update.

Pokemon Go Tracking

Pokemon Go players are furious because Niantic removed a key feature instead of fixing a glitch

Pokemon Go players are furious because Niantic removed a key feature instead of fixing a glitch

If you love Pokemon Go, then you know Niantic’s servers have been unreliable in one critical aspect of the game. The tracker feature that shows you the proximity of nearby Pokemon hasn’t been working properly for a couple of weeks – you may know the issue as the “three-step glitch.” Niantic released a major update for the game over the weekend for both the iPhone and Android, but rather than fixing the bug it chose to remove the feature completely. Players are outraged, as the removal of the “three-step” indicator only makes the game harder to play. More →

Android Features iOS Doesn't Have

As an iPhone user, I couldn’t be more jealous of Google’s newest Android feature

As an iPhone user, I couldn’t be more jealous of Google’s newest Android feature

By on July 26, 2016 at 10:07 AM.

Apple’s iPhone has been my main cell phone ever since just after the first model was released back in 2007. To be honest, I don’t see that changing anytime soon. While it was a bit rough around the edges in the early days, Android has grown into a refined and stable mobile platform. It also continues to be more versatile than iOS will ever be, and Android phone makers have come out with some gorgeous hardware that matches or even bests Apple’s iPhones in many ways. But iOS still offers a user experience and a third-party app ecosystem that are both vastly superior to Android in my opinion, and the hardware isn’t half bad either — especially with the new and improved iPhone 7 on the horizon.

That said, there are still plenty of Android features that make me jealous, and that rings especially true for the newest Android feature Google just introduced. More →

Movie and TV show downloads could be coming soon to Netflix

Netflix has long maintained a strict policy against offline viewing, even as competitors introduced the feature in their products. But the company started to change its tune earlier this year, and now it looks like Netflix offline viewing is closer than ever — at least when it comes to the technical features that would make it possible.
