    Google has been gradually rolling out updates to its existing services over the last couple of weeks. We're still a few weeks away from the official launch of Android 5.0 Lollipop to the world, but we've already seen what Material Design looks like in apps like the Google Play Store. There are some updates that Google seems to be holding off for the final build, and Gmail 5.0 seems to be among them. We've just come across an interesting teaser of what to expect for Gmail 5.0, and even though most of the changes are very nice, not every need is being addressed with the update. The positive ...

    If we take the launch of the original Pebble into account, this would be second year of the modern smartwatch. You'd assume that, just like in the case of smartphones and mobile tablets, everyone would own a smartwatch by now, right? Well, the reality is actually quite the opposite, where fitness trackers enjoy a significantly larger portion of the market at the moment. Still, that only means that there is a lot of opportunity left in the smartphone space, and one of the biggest names in the fitness tracking industry is planning to address it. New reports claim that Fitbit is preparing the ...

    Apple's event last Thursday was mainly about iPads and Macs, but the company did take some time to give us information on its new software updates. One of the major changes Apple is pushing to its mobile devices is iOS 8.1, which includes some very needed bug fixes, and even some new enhancements. Cupertino promised the update would reach iOS devices today, and the wait is finally over. Apple has just launched its OTA update to iOS 8.1, and as long as you're rocking any iPad after the iPad 2, or any iPhone after the iPhone 4s, you should be getting the update right this minute. The list of ...

    Pocketnow Daily gets an average of 300 to 500 comments a day, and sometimes even a thousand. We’d like to thank you all for participating in our question of the day, and we love your feedback so much, that we decided that since we can’t respond to ever single one of your comments, we should at least feature a couple in a weekly video. This is the Pocketnow Daily Recap. Since we only have 3 minutes on every Daily video to go through the hottest news, the weekly recap will serve as a more extensive discussion where we also include your thoughts on the subject. Sadly, for the sake of ...

    Apple may have not invented the tablet computer, nor may have it been the first company to launch a fully functional product to the world. Still, that doesn't change the fact that the launch of the original iPad left a dent big enough that almost every competitor has followed in Apple's footsteps. Love it or hate it, Apple's iPad lineup remains king in the tablet world, and today we get a glimpse of its future. Today's event was full of iPads, though we wish we could say that all of them were new. Sadly not everything announced today was hot, and that's the main reason we keep our "Love ...

    We're just a few hours away from what we assume to be Apple's last event of the year. So far, we've seen new updates to iOS at WWDC 2014, and we've also seen the new iPhone 6 / iPhone 6 Plus and Apple Watch being announced at Apple's event last month. If you're asking yourself what's missing from the puzzle this year, well, actually a lot. We have yet to see new iPads being announced, in addition to certain changes we expect for OS X Yosemite that will benefit iOS users in the Apple ecosystem as well. We could even throw in some Apple TV and iPod updates here as well, but those are a rough ...

    Some of you may not remember this, but a lot of us where confused by Google’s announcement of the Nexus One so many years ago. We eventually understood that at a time when Android was beginning to dilute itself in a sea of custom skins and lackluster specifications, Google needed push OEMs to dare the odds of the spec sheet with more powerful hardware, and it also needed to show the world what Android was truly like under all the existing bloat. Google succeeded in this endeavor, and even if the Nexus One wasn’t a hot seller in numbers because of its price, it was my first Android ...

    Apple's launch of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus have left the media polarized. On one hand, this is Apple's best selling iPhone lineup in history, and on the other hand, the bad publicity by issues like "bendgate" have intended to tarnish the reputation of Cupertino's new product. Still, what matters in every case are the sales figures, and Apple is on the verge of setting another record, and this time in China. Apple began preorders for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus on Friday, and so far, sources claim that Apple has sold a staggering 20 million units. What's more shocking is that the ...

    One of the biggest mysteries of the fall, as ironic as it may sound, is the pastry name that Google will select for the next version of Android. A few months ago we were all certain that Android K would be dubbed Key Lime Pie, and it turned out to be KitKat out of the blue. For now there is still a lot of speculation over the final name of Android L, and given the rumors that Google will announce new Nexus products silently tomorrow, things begin to make more sense with a new teaser launched by Google today. Google has just launched a teaser video named "Sweeeeet" on YouTube, and it's ...

    How often do you use your digital assistant every day? Some may think that Siri, Cortana and Google Now are just gimmicks, but according to some recent studies, that highly depends on how old you are. If you're wondering how different usage patterns are when it comes to voice search, it seems Google asked itself the same question, and the answers are not shockers at all. According to a new study commission by Google, 55% of users under 18 will use any voice search service, be it Google Now, Siri or Cortana, more than once a day in comparison to 41% of grownups. This number grows to a ...

    Apple has already teased that its event on October 16 will be about something that's taken a long time. Many speculate that even though Apple's music event is already history with the iPhone 6 and Apple Watch, we might see a revamp to legacy products like the Apple TV and iPods as well. We do see it as highly unlikely, but we're almost certain that this will be Apple's iPad event, and today we learn more about when to expect it. Trusted sources claim that Apple is already shipping mass quantities of a specific product for a launch on October 24. Sadly we don't know what product this is at ...
