Slacker Radio gets Android Auto support

Slacker Radio, an Internet music service that has been around for a while but that arguably isn't as well known as Spotify and Pandora, has pushed out an update for its Android app and with it comes Android Auto support.

PSA: Disable auto backup when you uninstall Google Photos

PSA: Disable auto backup when you uninstall Google Photos

When Google formally divorced Photos from Google+, some thought it was the best thing to do. Others, however, thought nothing of it. It was, after all, just another way to give Google access to your digital life. While Google Photos offers a lot of conveniences and fun features, it does naturally require you to store your photos on Google's turf. Easy enough to disable right? Just uninstall Google Photos and you're safe. Not quite, because apparently, Photos doesn't exactly clean up after itself once you've decided to show it the door.

Vine for iOS update brings HD upload option

Vine has updated its app for iOS, adding in a new list of suggestions with other “Viners” that makes it easier to find new people to follow.

With this latest version one can choose to have their Vines uploaded in a higher quality than in the past.

Legendary, Google bring Warcraft to the world of VR

Legendary, Google bring Warcraft to the world of VR

Not to dash your hopes, this isn't the long-awaited Warcraft film yet. Not even a trailer. Though we expect the film to arrive in glorious stereo 3D or even VR when it does screen next year, the Warcraft being shown around at San Diego Comic Con is but an appetizer and perhaps even a distraction.

Amazon Cloud Drive mobile app launched perhaps prematurely

Amazon Cloud Drive mobile app launched perhaps prematurely

Amazon may have a booming business when it comes to enterprise cloud and remote computing services, but for consumer storage, Google and Dropbox, and sometimes even OneDrive, lead the race. Trying to catch up with the big players, Amazon has launched its own mobile app for its Cloud Drive, but that might be doing it more harm than good. It's not that the app is plagued with broken features. It's that there are very few features to speak of, earning many disappointed, even irate, reviews from mobile users.

Microsoft Tossup makes app out of lunch choice overload

Microsoft may be busy working on Windows 10, but that hasn't stopped it pushing out a new app, Tossup, intended to make organizing meet-ups with friends less painful. The app, out for Android and iOS today, allows a group to make suggestions for venue, activity, and more, and then collectively vote to figure out the most popular option. However, while Microsoft might be framing Tossup around social gatherings today, in reality is has far broader potential applications.
