Gmail For Android Will Soon Support Yahoo Mail, Outlook And Other Email Services

0 comments

Use email? Own an Android device? Not a fan of Gmail? There’s good news coming your way.

Google is preparing a major update for Gmail for Android that will, among many things, finally handle email accounts from other service providers, such as Microsoft Outlook, Yahoo and AOL [mandatory disclaimer: AOL is, of course, the owner of TechCrunch]. That’s according to the sleuths at Android Police, who discovered evidence of a redesigned app that is expected to launch soon.

You can glimpse a look at the unified Gmail app for Android in the video tour below, which was surfaced by Android Police.

The refreshed looking app — which follows Google’s new Material Design language — includes round icons, a clean and bright design and, most notably, said support for third-party email accounts.

We expect this update to roll out this week and suspect that this update has been anticipated by loyal Google customers for some time. Apple’s iOS has long supported multiple email accounts, so you Android folks out there will finally get on par — although, to be honest, if you’re still using antiquated email services today, then you’ve only got what you deserve up to this point.

That’ll be one less excuse for not responding to your boss’s email, anyway.

Android Lollipop Easter Egg Casts Andy The Android As Flappy Bird

0 comments

Android 5.0 Lollipop is coming soon, and shipping on Google’s new Nexus hardware, but a newly discovered Easter Egg in the build is already available in the developer preview. The hidden, fun feature in Android 5 is accessible via the Settings menu, with repeated tapping on the Android version number listing, and gives users the chance to play through an Android Lollipop-themed version of the viral hit Flappy Bird.

The game looks fun and diverting, and it’s included in Android 5-running devices for free. This isn’t the final shipping version of Lollipop, and we’ll have to wait until we get our hands on some new Nexus hardware before we can verify it makes it through to that version, too, but generally speaking, Google does offer some kind of Easter Egg in its shipping software updates.

Unlike Flappy Bird creator Dong Nguyen, however, whoever was responsible for this game at Google probably won’t have an apparent existential crisis, pull the software, go into hiding in Vietnam and return later with sequels that have nowhere near the viral potential of the original.

Google Debuts The HTC-Made Nexus 9 Android Tablet

0 comments

Google has a new Nexus tablet, and it’s a 9-inch slate, built by HTC — a company that’s an unusual choice, given the ample field of OEMs available. The Taiwanese gadget-maker got out of the tablet game a few years ago, but now it’s back with a 9-inch Nexus special that looks kind of like an oversized Nexus 5, albeit with an brushed-metal aluminum rim in place of the Nexus 5’s entirely soft-touch exterior.

The Nexus 9 boasts an 8.9-inch display, with 2048 x 1440 resolution (not quite up to the iPad mini in terms of pixel density), 4:3 aspect ratio (as opposed to the Nexus 7’s widescreen dimensions) and is only 0.31-inches thick, which is just a hair thicker than the iPad mini. It’s powered by an Nvidia Tegra K1 chip (which should be good news based on our review of the Shield Tablet) and it has 2GB of RAM, plus both 16 and 32GB storage options. There’s an 8 megapixel camera on the back, and a 1.6 megapixel shooter on the front.

Google’s Nexus 9 goes up for pre-order on October 17th, and should hit the shelves on November 3rd. The 16GB model will go for $400, the 32GB model for $480, and a 32GB model with LTE built in will set you back $600.

The Nexus 9 comes powered by the latest edition of Android, which was previewed at I/O earlier this year as ‘Android L,’ but which will be called Lollipop for the official public launch.

Android Ads Arrive In Time For Rumored Nexus 6 And 9 Reveal

0 comments

Google may be tipping its hand with new Android advertisement spots, which were spotted and posted to YouTube by Droid Life. The ads feature an eclectic assortment of Andy the Android characters, wearing various costumes and rendered in various sizes. The Android mascot’s variety is also the main message Google is trying to promote with these ads, which tout the slogan “Be together, not the same,” which could summarize Google’s approach to unifying its OS along a more common core with Android L, regardless of what handset or device it appears on.

The ads might be timed to coincide with the upcoming release of Google’s Nexus 6 and Nexus 9 reference devices, both of which have been rumored for a launch this month. The new hardware could appear as early as today, if Google is aiming to get its new products out the door before Apple’s big event on Thursday, but the company could be waiting until after the buzz around that launch dies down a bit.

The ads themselves don’t directly reference any Nexus hardware (though the one at the bus stop does include an Andy character wielding a huge Android-powered device, and the rumors are that Google’s Motorola-built Nexus 6 will have a whopping 5.9-inch display. But they do feature the new look of the Android logo Google introduced at I/O for Android L specifically, and the new Nexus hardware will probably be the first shipping devices to be powered by Android L.

Lyve’s New App Lets You Access All Your Photos And Videos From Any Device You Own

0 comments

Accessing your entire photo and video collection from any device can still be a challenge today, especially if you have your media spread out across a variety of local hard drives as well as various cloud services where you have to pay for storage – potentially limiting how much of your collection is hosted online at any given time. Lyve Minds, which launched its first product – a home storage box for digital archives – earlier this year, has been working to change that.

Now, the company is rolling out its latest solution, in the form of a new application called “Lyve” which works as a tool to combine your disparate libraries, de-duplicate images, and more – with no need for additional hardware.

Expanding Beyond Hardware Solutions

Lyve Minds was founded by Tim Bucher, a tech industry vet who has held a number of roles at major companies over the years, including engineering director at Steve Jobs’ NeXT Computer, SVP of Macintosh engineering at Apple, lead architect at video game maker 3DO, lead engineer and architect at Sun Microsystems, and VP of engineering and operations at WebTV, sold to Microsoft.

In May, his company launched a hardware device, called “Lyve Home,” offering consumers a way to store their photo and video collections locally on Lyve’s own hardware, then view those images via a suite of free apps designed for iOS, Mac, or Android devices.

Beyond simply offering a means of accessing your photos without necessarily having to host them on today’s sometimes pricey cloud storage services, the Lyve software is also capable of eliminating duplicates when you’re viewing your images on a remote device, as well as rendering them in a format that’s designed for the screen size of the device you’re using to view them at the time.

The Lyve App

But with the debut of the new Lyve application, you can bypass the need to purchase one of Lyve’s hardware devices and instead back up your media collection just by installing the app on the devices you currently own.

The product sounds a lot like Loom – the photo archiving solution acquired by Dropbox – which also offered a cross-platform suite of apps that made all your images from desktop, tablet and smartphone devices accessible in mobile-optimized formats. (Loom was shut down after its acquisition, as Dropbox now offers its own photo storage app called Carousel.)

With Lyve, available now for iOS, Android, Kindle Fire and Windows, you simply install the app on all the devices you use, and the photos and videos are collected and organized on your behalf. As new content is added, it’s presented in a single library, organized by date (newest first) and viewable as one timeline.

The main homescreen displays your collection in a tiled format that somewhat resembles Windows Phone’s “live tiles” look-and-feel. It’s made up of differently sized photo squares and thumbnails that animate, flipping around to show you other items in that date’s gallery. Next to each gallery, is a brightly colored tile displaying the date for that collection.

Lyve also includes a “timeline” section, where photos are laid out in a horizontally scrollable format, again organized by date.

You can also star photos and videos to favorite them, view their metadata, delete them, view your “just added” items, and share photos and videos via email, SMS or social media.

The company continues to offer its hardware-based devices for those who want to store their collections on locally attached hard drives that are accessible by Lyve’s mobile apps. (Lyve Home is the larger of the two drives at $299, while another called Lyve Studio is $199. They offer 2 TB and 500 GB, respectively.)

The Lyve app, however, is free, and imports from your various personal devices, in addition to online services like Dropbox and Google Drive.

“Other companies offer free solutions only up to a certain amount of capacity,” explains CEO Tim Bucher. “Lyve’s free solution is unlimited though. You can have as many devices, as many photos, and as many videos as you want. The difference is that we don’t store the originals in our service – we only store the mobile-optimized versions,” he says.

Consumers, of course, can store their original photos elsewhere – on local hard drives, within folders or media applications like iPhoto; (optionally) on Lyve’s own storage devices; or on other cloud services.

Lyve’s app simply makes the photos accessible in optimized formats, for free, wherever you are.

The Lyve apps are available for download here.
