We're not going anywhere Sony make some fine devices and the Z3+ is just one example. There were some rumours flying around that they might be leaving the world of mobile but thankfully Sony have quashed them.

The mobile experience, wearables and the competition are all talked about via the below link. Hopefully they'll turn their attention to just the flagship, a compact version, a budge device, tablet and watch leaving a billion things that look the same to Samsung.

Google's free app of the week Thomas's Musical Day for Percy is this weeks free app of the week. To get it head over to Google Play, tap Apps and then Family. From there just hit the free app option and hey presto.

It's all about the bass...... Where do yours come from?

In 2015 already 11.5 billion tracks have been streamed via services such as Google Play and Deezer. Last year a total of 14.8 billion tracks were streamed so this year is going to see a massive increase on that figure. It's already up by 80%.

The most-streamed track of 2015 is Mark Ronson’s Uptown Funk, has been played an i 45 million times via streaming services. My wife has it as her ring tone.

*It's getting hot in here* For those of you not in the UK we get all excited with a flake of snow, a clear blue sky and a gust of wind. It is though quite warm for us at the moment.

A midnight swim might be in order. All I need now is a pool or I could brave it and have a dip in the sea.

As Robin Williams was shooting ''Good Morning Vietnam'' in Thailand he mentioned on Johnny Carson that it was 100% humidity and that one could literally ''cook things in his pants''.

Ashes 2015 England didn't fair all that well during the World Cup earlier this year. In contrast Australia come to the UK with high hopes of adding the Ashes to their recent World Cup victory.

The Ashes 2015 gets underway on Wednesday the 8th with the first test being played at the Sophia Gardens in Cardiff and as always if you can't get to any of the venues your trusted smartphone and tablet will help you keep up with every wicket, run and streaker.

If you have access to a supported device and login details for Sky the Sky Go app will bring you live coverage as it happens.

Get Sky Go here - https://goo.gl/di4K4I

NOW TV could also be a good bet. It'll cost you £10.99 per week for their Sports Pass, you can stream it to your TV via that super little Chromecast you've got plugged in to the back of your TV.

Get Now TV here - https://goo.gl/W5GGbJ

BBC Sports probably wins as the better app with push notifications. Coupled with live commentary you'll get everything delivered to your phone or tablet as it happens. As an added bonus those of you with an Android Wear device will get the push notifications on your wrist. In this 'My Alerts' section just add England as your team.

Get BBC Sports here -https://goo.gl/FGn7Oo

The ECB app is the official England app and is probably one I'd steer clear off. Push notifications won't work and a new app was promised a few months ago but the development team have instead focused on an Apple Watch app. It does though show you a detailed score card and allows you to follow nearly every team that plays cricket.

Get the ECB app here - https://goo.gl/cLmiU6

Sky Sports Live Cricket not only gives you updates and scorecards for all the action but those with a subscription to Sky Sports can tap in their details to watch the live coverage. If you already have Sky Go it could be used as a companion app.

Get Sky Sports Live Cricket here - https://goo.gl/9e5dDX

Times Sport - Get video near love highlights of all the action and as it happens commentary. You'll also be able to get notifications of wickets as they fall. If you have an Android Wear device the notifications will also show up on your watch.

The Times Sport is only available for those who have a subscription to The Times. They do have a summer sale on their subscriptions at the moment and you can also get money back if you sign up through Quidco.

Get the Times Sport here - https://goo.gl/ovrVvb

Sign up to The Times via Quidco here - http://goo.gl/MMsMxb

You can also follow The Ashes on Google+

+England Cricket​​​​​

+cricket.com.au​​

What app will you be using to follow all the action?

Price drop At £303.99 for the Nexus 6 32GB in Blue or White is an absolute bargain. If you'd prefer the 64GB version Google are asking you to part with £378.99 and both options come with free delivery.

Whatever option you go for it'll arrive SIM free and unlocked so you can pop any SIM card you want in there. I've got the Blue 32GB version. Always find my way back to a Nexus.

Hit the link below and you'll be whizzed over to the Google Store. https://goo.gl/Gbgvbv

App update - Endomomdo

At last, it's here. You can now sync your work out to Google Fit. It's been a feature that many have asked for in the reviews over on Google Play.

The ability to track your nutrition via MyFitnessPal has also been included, they're both owned by the same people and are all about keeping in shape so it is a good marry.

Challenges have also seen some attention, it should now be easier to see how you compare.

The update is live via the below link. It comes in at just over 20MB

Mobile numbers also play a rule in helping you to pay those you owe money. Any number that is registered with the paym service can be sent money owed.

Roam free Using your handset or tablet in Europe and getting charged for roaming is set to end as of June 2017. That means you can use your device to call, text and use the internet without running up a bill you probably won't be able to pay.

Three already allow customers to roam at no cost in certain parts of Europe including Italy where they have agreements in place with networks under their parent company.

This will dent the profits of the networks so expect price rises to cover the loss which will be perfectly understandable and will either lead to a massive hike in PAYG costs or the handset subsidy going completely.

The link belwo takes you to the Gov.UK website where they are giving themselves a pat on the back.

You can also read a full press release from the European Commission here - http://goo.gl/VDsHIz - where they also mention net neutrality.

Android news for the UK, all things Android in the UK
Introduction
UK based Android blog hoping to bring all the news for Android users here in the UK. You won't find us on a website, after a trial with Google + we have decided to use what has to be a more fun, interactive and easier way to post. Most of my 'blogging' will be done using nothing more than a Nexus 7 3G tablet, great for posting on the go and takes full advantage of all the services Google has to offer. I may also use the super Nexus 4 to add content, 

Please feel free to get in touch if you have anything you'd like shared with our followers
