Fortnite Android app: APK Download do nots

Fortnite Android app: APK Download do nots

A whole bunch of apps are on the Google Play app store and throughout the web suggesting they'll give you access to Fortnite. In reality, there IS a way to play Fortnite on Android, but it's not the same as iOS, and it's NOT a regular app you can download and run on its own. If you see an app called Fortnite, or Fortnite codes, or Fortnite access, or anything Fortnite - for now - it's fake, and you should STAY AWAY.

CCC Digital Key spec turns smartphones into car keys

CCC Digital Key spec turns smartphones into car keys

We put almost everything inside our phones, from our personal data to our money. So why not our car keys as well?

Flutter, Google’s vision for cross-OS app-making, hits Release Preview 1

Google has let Flutter Release Preview 1 into the wild, giving developers the chance to get to grips wth its cross-platform mobile SDK for apps that run just as happily on iOS as they do on Android. The goal, Google says, is straightforward: it makes more sense for developers to build a single app and then have that automatically export in versions for iPhone and Android, especially as new platforms come down the pipe.

iOS 12, watchOS 5, tvOS 12, macOS 10.14 beta 2: here’s what’s new

Inching closer to its massive Fall rollout, Apple released the second developer beta of all of its four operating systems.

Siri is about to leave Alexa, Google Assistant in the dust

Although Siri has been the first popular and widely known voice-controlled smart assistant, it has been shoved to the sidelines by the rapid expansion of the likes of Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant. At WWDC earlier this month, Apple showed it still had some fight left. It introduced Siri Shortcuts and, more than just catching up with third-party integration, it’s going to change the game that will hopefully make smart assistant even smarter. But probably not before it shames its rivals.
