Just about every time the tiresome Android vs. iOS debate rears its ugly head on the Internet, the argument is made that Android is better because developers have the freedom to do practically whatever they want. While there is definitely some truth to the notion that Android apps have capabilities iOS apps do not, it obviously doesn’t make Google’s mobile platform inherently better than Apple’s.
Another day, another fantastic list of paid iPhone and iPad apps that are on sale for free. Yesterday’s list had some great offerings on it and many of them are still completely free if you hurry back to that post and download them now. Today, we have seven more paid iOS apps for you to check out and as always, these sales could be over at any point in time. More →
At the risk of repeating myself for the hundredth time, I hate iPhone cases. Covering up that sleek design and premium aluminum seems like a crime against good taste. Sadly, however, the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus have the most slippery finish known to man, and they’re both accidents waiting to happen. Because of this, people who want to avoid imminent disaster have no choice but to cover their phones with cases.
Of course, you can still do it with some style by picking the right cases made out of premium materials, and that’s where BGR comes in. More →
If there’s a better way for Amazon to celebrate its Android app store’s birthday than by offering a bunch of solid paid apps for free, we don’t know what it is. Beginning immediately and likely ending at some point in the near future, Amazon is offering a huge sale on paid Android apps. There are 34 apps in total, and they would normally combine to cost more than $100.
For a limited time, however, you can get each and every one for free. More →
Google has been hard at work over the past few months improving the iOS version of its insanely popular Google Maps app, which is a universal build optimized for both the iPhone and iPad. We had a nice big update to enjoy back in January, and then Google came right back in early February with another update.
Now, the world’s best mobile mapping solution has been updated once again, and there are several nifty new features to enjoy as a result. More →
HTC and Robert Downey Jr. have something of a history together, and so far it has yielded a series of bizarre device advertisements that do precious little to actually… advertise devices. Instead, the company’s RDJ campaign has been a brand awareness effort of sorts, however successful or unsuccessful it might be at this point.
At least, we think they’re meant to promote the HTC One M9. You be the judge. More →
There is now less than a month to wait before Game of Thrones season 5 finally premieres, and GoT fans are beyond excited. Everything we have seen so far in the many teasers and trailers HBO has released points to one of the most dramatic and action-packed seasons to date, and it had better be; the hype leading up to season 5’s upcoming debut has reached sky-high levels.
Now, perhaps just to fan the flames a bit more, HBO has released two new clips from Game of Thrones season 5 that have never been seen before. More →
T-Mobile made waves when it first began pushing its “Un-carrier” initiatives, and its outspoken CEO helped get the carrier tons of publicity. Beyond the constant jabs at rival carriers, foul language and showmanship, however, T-Mobile’s new moves actually were doing a good job of addressing pain points among wireless subscribers in the United States. As a result, the carrier has enjoyed phenomenal subscriber growth in recent quarters.
Now, it’s time to see what T-Mobile has in store for us next. More →
Wikipedia is the sixth most popular website in America according to Alexa, and hundreds of millions of people rely on the site to some degree. Of course, most people also know what they’re getting themselves into when visiting Wikipedia. The information is crowd-sourced so some pages can’t always be relied upon, and the site features a very basic design that’s reminiscent of the early days of the World Wide Web.
There is no question that Android has found success across the entire mobile landscape. From developed markets to emerging markets, and from the consumer market to the enterprise market, Android devices have proliferated. Where the enterprise market is concerned, however, Google’s mobile platform hasn’t always found the level of success that it has seen elsewhere, and it turns out the cause may be some issues we’ve seen rear their ugly heads time and time again.

Welcome to our biggest list of paid iPhone and iPad apps of the week, featuring 10 solid iOS apps that would normally cost you a combined $23 to download. Right now for a limited time, however, each and every app on this list is completely free. Also of note, there are still a few paid apps on sale for free on yesterday’s list, so be sure to check that post out as well. More →
We constantly try to share great tips and tricks with our readers in an effort to help them get the most out of their gadgets. Sometimes we put our own lists of tips together, and sometimes we point out useful lists that can be found on other sites. I came across one such list this morning, but it was presented in a particularly curious way.
The post framed eight iOS and Mac features as things that people likely don’t use because they’re too subtle or are “big misses” that remind us Apple is “human” and makes mistakes. Interestingly, however, I use and love every single feature the site listed. More →
When we reviewed Google’s Nexus 9 tablet last November, we called it the best Android tablet the world had ever seen. Nothing has changed since then — the pure Android device is still the best Google-powered tablet that money can buy. Well, there is one thing that has changed… the Nexus 9 is now cheaper than ever thanks to a sale currently being held by Amazon. More →
