For years I’ve been using the ESPN app to get notifications on all my teams. From top stories to score updates, the app was always there with the data I needed. But it was during MLS Decision Day last season that I started to realize the app wasn’t cutting it anymore. As I waited for …

Three great games currently grace my phone, for when I’m bored and run out of shows to binge watch. Homescapes Homescapes is a simple Match-3 game, similar to the likes of Bejeweled and Candy Crush, and with each level you pass you get a “Star”. Earn enough stars and you can start fixing up your …

It’s been teased and hinted for a while, but Android Instant Apps is finally rolling out to many Android devices. Sometimes you click on a link that would prefer to open up inside of its native app (think Instagram), but you don’t have that app installed…well everyone hurts from that.

The app is obviously available on Android and comes with a free two-week trial (and afterward is a one-time fee of $3.99) which includes a few solid features, …

Spotify finally kicked their Android app a notch. As someone with an Android phone that finally has a Micro-SD slot, I’d always wanted to use it to store my few gigabytes of mobile music on, which thanks to Spotify I was able to save for offline play. But Spotify was always weird. Wherever the app …

I’ve had the Moto X for many years now, evolving from Gen 1–>Gen 2–>Pure. In 2014 I discussed how Verizon wouldn’t allow “Advanced Calling” on the Motorola Moto X 2nd Gen, and now on the Pure (as a recap, this basically means that one can’t do both talk and data at the same time). I …
