Android 7.0 Nougat images appear for Nexus 9, Pixel C, Nexus Player

In case you haven't heard the news, Android 7.0 Nougat released yesterday. The news is even better for owners of current Nexus devices, as they're first on the list to receive over-the-air updates to the latest version of Android. However, like previous releases, we're expecting the OTA roll out to take as long as a couple of weeks, so eager Nexus owners may not get the update right away. For those who prefer their gratification to come sooner rather than later, you'll be pleased to know that Google has started posting Nougat images for a handful of Nexus devices.

Pokemon GO Update makes Team Leaders useful, promises exciting features

Niantic Labs has just announced what seems to be a very minor update to Pokemon GO, which could still pique people’s curiosities. For one, it finally gives a bit of character to the otherwise practically useless Team Leaders. It also very briefly mentions one of the most debated aspects of the game: bots (and cheating). But most importantly, it tells players to hold on to their seats because new and exciting features are coming. Which isn’t really that surprising, but is now actually more critical than ever before.

LG V20 will really have Nougat first, high end features teased

It seems that there is some truth to LG’s boast after all. Now that Android 7.0 Nougat has been formally launched, the list of devices getting first dibs have also been revealed. Naturally, existing Nexus devices, as well as the Pixel C and General Mobile 4G Android One, are getting the preferential treatment.

Over the past couple of weeks a variety of big changes have weeded out some of the most prevalent Pokemon GO cheats, hacks, and exploits.

This list has been compiled for two reasons. One, to keep gamers on top of what the cheaters are using to attempt to beat them. Two, to keep these developers on their toes - just as they, in turn, are keeping Niantic's developers on their toes.

How do I get “free” Pokemon GO coins?

How do I get “free” Pokemon GO coins?

Pokemon GO players find an obvious (yet hidden) method for gaining "free" coins in this global phenomenon of a game. It's not meant to be a secret, but there it remains - many new players see the Pokemon GO items store and instantly assume that they'll have to pay actual cash to attain Pokemon Coins, which in turn will then allow them to purchase things like Lures and additional Pokeballs. It's just not true. The real key - or one of the real keys - is in plain sight.
