  Ever bought a Blu-ray movie and noticed how most of them come with that “Digital Copy” for downloading to your Apple iPhone or iPod? If you just so happen to be an Android fanboy and a movie buff, you might have been feeling a little left out of the mix. Apparently, movie studios have a hard time trusting Android’s DRM system and it’s made them a little nervous when it came to publishing digital copies for our beloved OS. But don’t worry, because it looks like the tides may … [Read more...]

  Does your Market app not display Flash Player 10.1 for your device? It’s for you, my Android brethren, who own some of the… less powerful Android devices, that I now bring this to you.

Well, I came across this thread on XDA where some Chinese developers were able to crack the Flash Player 10.1 app and made it … [Read more...]

The latest update from Federico Carnales isn’t about LauncherPro, surprisingly. We’ve just learned that the famed developer is working on his own music application right now. It’s tentatively named “Fede Music”, but this is an early alpha build of the application and that could always change. And more than the name could change, so could the features. We’re not sure how Federico’s treating this project – as a main focus or just a side gig to take a break from LauncherPro … [Read more...]

Just as soon as the LG Revolution got a rumored launch date of May 26th, this user guide has found its way into the hands of Droid-Life. Yep, it’s still Bing’d. And you had to guess Netflix would still be supported. Everything else is as you’d expect, though – it’s a 4G LTE device, has LG’s custom user interface, will have a special battery door for wireless charging and everything else you’ve already known since CES. If you need some reading material to put you to sleep tonight, … [Read more...]

The folks at Dolphin have been hard at work on the next iteration of their popular Android browser, but only a select group of people were able to get their hands on the latest up until this point. They’ve announced a public beta for version 5.0, though. Changes may not seem significant on the surface, but things such as sub-folder support in bookmarks make it quite the desirable upgrade for me. (And many others, I’m sure.)
