Nextbit’s revolutionary new Android software will change the way we use phones and tablets

Nextbit’s revolutionary new Android software will change the way we use phones and tablets

Solutions like Apple’s iCloud can be frustrating at times, especially when they’re hacked. When they work, however, they make our lives so much easier. Download a song on your phone and it’s automatically downloaded to your computer. Install a new app on your iPad and it’s automatically installed on your iPhone. Add a phone number to a contact on your Nexus 5 and it instantly updates all of your devices.

But the services we use now are just the tip of the iceberg.

What if there was a solution that could sync every last bit and byte from one device to the next? What if you could start editing a video on one device and switch to another in a matter of seconds? What if you could start drawing a picture on a smartphone and pick up right where you left off almost instantly on a tablet? Every app, every file, always in sync… this is the future of cloud sync solutions, and now it’s here. More →

First smartphone with Cyanogen software preinstalled finally announced

CyanogenMod, the popular alternative Android installer, is partnering with OnePlus to create a smartphone called the OnePlus One. This horribly named handset will be OnePlus’s first phone, and OnePlus hopes to launch it in the first half of this year. According to OnePlus’s announcement, “The CyanogenMod team will work in tandem with us to combine the best hardware with the best software.” This announcement is a boost for CyanogenMod, which had a brief appearance on the Google Play store last year before being removed in November. By having its software pre-installed on a handset, CyanogenMod can avoid dealing with Google Play altogether.

CyanogenMod Removed Google Play

CyanogenMod removed from Google Play after terms of service violation

CyanogenMod removed from Google Play after terms of service violation

The installer for CyanogenMod, a popular alternative to Google’s stock version of Android, has been pulled from Google Play after its creators were informed by Google that the installer is in violation of the store’s developer terms. The Google Play support team told Cyanogen that the installer was relatively harmless, but “encourages users to void their warranty.” Cyanogen was asked to voluntarily remove the installer before Google was forced to take down the app itself. It is still possible to download CyanogenMod through the team’s website, but according to Cyanogen, “it’s a hassle and adds steps to the process.” There is no word on when or if the installer will reappear on Google Play in the future.
