I gave my sister my old M7 when I got the M8. Now I have the Nexus 6 but I still use the M8 on wifi as a full backup device.

The latest update to the Flickr app finally gives Android users something worth using. I still prefer the desktop web interface for uploading batches of images though.

+Tamara Rodney Same here and I'd add a wish to share an image from Flickr via SMS in the same way Google+ android app allows me to. It basically downloads the actually image and sends it as MMS.

Very happy Motorola will finally give customers what they want. I enjoy lollipop on several phones. However, on my main phone (Moto X 2013) I need the granular control over app permissions that Xprivacy offers. Unfortunately, it doesn't work well with lollipop so I'll be holding out on the update for this particular phone. 😩
 
I know that a lot of people have been asking about the status of the Moto X (1st Gen) Lollipop upgrade. I can see the frustration and in some cases the anger about how long it has taken to get the upgrade deployed. It has been a struggle due to the lack of support from some of our partners but  I am glad to announce that we are starting TestDrive in both the US and LatAm. If all goes well we should start full deployments in a few weeks.

Well, technically, if they are aiming to take on Facebook (Ad Revenue = $12 billion) and Google (Ad Revenue = $60 billion) and try and trash Yahoo (Ad Revenue = $4.8 billion) then, I think $4.4 billion is kinda reasonable...

BEST BOOK COVERS EVER

I wonder if covers like this could get more youth interested in reading books.

+Corvida Raven     Same here. I'd collected a tone of great books only to sell them all to Half Price Books and repurchase the bulk of them in eBook format. I'll wait until I retire to collect print books again.

Built this little app this past week because I was not happy with the current offering.

Compared to Greenify or other xposed modules:

1 - It's free
2 - Kills system apps/services
3 - Better design
4 - Way smaller memory footprint
5 - Runs every X seconds instead of only when screening off. All operations are done on the background thread so system interactivity isn't affected

This is not meant to be revolutionary - it's not an original idea - but I built it according to my own needs and what I think a app like this should work.

There's an option to purchase a "Pro" key, but you can also use all the features for free toggling the right option.

Enjoy, share with your friends!

About damn time! 👏 Hope they take some cues from XPrivacy and AppOps to manage permissions for everyday and power users.
 
At I/O, Google announce that it is letting you hand-pick permissions during app installs.

#android  #apps #googleio   #io2015  

http://bit.ly/1zGVADc
According to a report out of Bloomberg, Google will introduce pretty cool new privacy controls at Google I/O this month, which is a fancy way of saying that they are about to let you pick and choose which permissions are given to an app before you install it.

I like the sound of this because I pay close attention to the permissions and the reasons behind them that's why I refused to update Facebook a year or so ago if someone is going to call a person I don't know from my phone number and sell God knows what to them whether it is a product I would willingly endorse or isn't this is not something I would allow so I Un installed and did my best to deactivate my account but this is Facebook I have no rights with this profile any way this is why I prefer Google+
