Bully launched on Android and iOS: here’s why you need it

Bully is a game made by Rockstar Games for game console, ported now to the Android universe for mobile users. This game was great when it was first released, and now that it's time for mobile, it's being re-launched with all components at once. Instead of waiting for DLC to be released, this game comes with all "unlockable" items from the title's console run already in the game. This is a game that's more than worth the few bucks it costs, and perfect for long trips to grandma's house for Christmas.

Galaxy A 2017 series leak flaunts glass, waterproofing

Galaxy A 2017 series leak flaunts glass, waterproofing

Samsung’s Galaxy A line, prefigured by the lone Galaxy Alpha model, made a rather interesting proposition back then. It offered the same first class look, sometimes even build materials, of the manufacturer’s flagship but hiding inside mid-range specs. As Samsung’s flagships moved from metal to metal with glass, so did the Galaxy A. Confirming what was previously just speculation, a set of leaked photos reveal a truly stylish 2017 refresh with one added bonus: IP68 dust and water proofing.

Here are the Sony PlayStation games coming to mobile next year

Here are the Sony PlayStation games coming to mobile next year

Mobile gaming has long been in full bloom (some might even argue it already plateaued), but the big console makers didn’t get the memo in time. It was only in September that Nintendo finally announced its first real mobile game, Super Mario Run, and rival Sony isn’t going to be left behind. Except that, it will, because it won’t be until 2017 when it launches 10 titles for both iOS and Android, hailing from its vast PlayStation treasury of games.

Galaxy S7 edge now comes in Black Pearl color

What do you do to kill time for a few months when you can’t actually launch a new product? Why dress up an old one, of course! That is precisely the situation that Samsung has found itself in after the tragedy that was the Galaxy Note 7. In order to try to boost sales of its only 2016 flagships, the Korean OEM is putting out new color options, at least for the Galaxy S7 edge. After Pink Gold and Blue Coral now comes the shiny Black Pearl, which could have also been called Jet Black. Or Piano Black. Except Apple might take offense.

Galaxy Note 7 in Canada to be blocked by carriers next week

If you’re still holding on to the cursed Samsung Galaxy Note 7 and happen to live in Canada, consider your phone’s days numbered. Samsung’s Canadian outfit has just announced an upcoming move that will really force owners to hand over their Galaxy Note 7 for a refund or an exchange. In a nutshell, starting next week, the devices will no longer be able to function as smartphones and will, instead, be demoted to being offline media players, notepads, and mirrors. That is, if they don’t explode first.

Dropbox offline folders on mobile are now possible, for a price

Dropbox offline folders on mobile are now possible, for a price

Despite the ubiquity of mobile devices, Internet coverage isn’t so. In addition to not having a cellular data plan, or public transportation with no Wi-Fi access there are also places where radio waves just can’t reach, like tunnels. In these cases, cloud storage is rendered helpless and offline access becomes a matter of life or death (for your work). Dropbox, one of the biggest names in that space, has long taken heed of that by allowing individual files to be taken offline. Now it is taking one step further by making whole folders available offline as well.

Android app update file sizes get shrunken by 65%

Android app update file sizes get shrunken by 65%

There was a time, back in the old Symbian and Windows CE days, when app sizes, were only measured in kilobytes. These days, however, it isn’t unusual for apps to go into megabyte territory, and we’re not talking just about games either. Technology and the price of components have made it far too easy to take file sizes for granted, but just because we can doesn’t mean we should. Especially when it comes to app updates, which, ideally, should be smaller than the original app download itself. Taking up the cause for smaller file sizes, Google has revealed a new technique to keep updates to a minimum, reducing sizes by 65% on average.
