BEAT DA BEAT hits Android, iOS: one bullet for every note

Previously greenlit on Steam for PC, Mac, and Linux, BEAT DA BEAT will be released for Android and iOS in August. Created by the folks at Nekki in Moscow, this game takes the music of some heavy dubstep musical artists and creates a bullet-hell genre game that dances to the beat. BEAT DA BEAT has flying enemies jamming lasers down your phone while they appear, blast, and shine to the music. "Absolutely everything - enemy's actions, moves, shooting - is build on the base of the song that is currently playing."

Google+ Photos is over: export while you can

Google+ Photos is over: export while you can

This afternoon Google made the official move to shut down Google+ Photos once and for all. This move comes soon after the opening of the doors to Google Photos+, effectively moving the addition sign from one place to the other in the name, but making a relatively big move of their Photos business in the process. For people still using Google+ Photos with the social network, there's a period of time where you'll be able to switch over the photos and videos you've got stored with the service to the new environment. Google has not yet set a deadline for movement.

Cortana on Android: Q&A session

Over the weekend the APK (application file) for Cortana was leaked to the public for Android. This version of the app is not final, nor should it be assumed that all of its abilities are finalized.

Galaxy S6 Edge Plus detailed with in-store photos

Today we get to see the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus in all its pre-release glory. This device is the next in a line of unique Samsung devices with displays that spill over the edge of the phone. While the first "Edge" was a Galaxy Note, this device gets rid of the S Pen and sticks closer to the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge, the most successful (of the two) Edge devices thus far. This device is as large as a Galaxy Note, but keeps the details of the Galaxy S6, providing a sort of hybrid device for public consumption.
