  1. These days all the mobile devices like the smartphones, tablets or the notebook computers depend on the rechargeable Lithium-ion batteries. But there is a huge problem with these batteries – they do not last more than 2-3 years. Their charge holding capacity reduces with time even if you do not use them and the number of charge/discharge cycles are limited to less than a thousand. Actually, many of us have to buy new batteries for the smartphones in a year or two. This is why we all want to make each of the charge cycle last as long as possible. The free Kaspersky Battery Life app for Android
  2. Facebook's data collecting practices have once again been called into question, after a new report revealed that it "routinely tracked" people who do not use the app. Privacy International analysed 34 apps on the Android mobile operating system with user bases of between 10 and 500 million. The charity began the study after the scandal surrounding the now defunct London based political consultancy Cambridge Analytica, which was accused of improperly obtaining personal information on behalf of political clients and using it to influence the outcome of the US 2016 presidential electi
  3. Attackers could craft a campaign that makes use of the device profile in order to exploit any vulnerabilities in a targeted fashion. Google has issued a partial fix for an Android issue dating back to 2015 – after originally rejecting the bug report on the grounds of the mobile OS “working as intended.” The issue – which still doesn’t have a CVE designation despite being partially addressed as a problem – has to do with how Android uses Google’s Chrome browser. Chrome is the default browser for Android devices, and it also enables the WebView and Custom Tabs APIs, which let a
  4. Advanced mobile surveillanceware, made in Russia, found in the wild Monokle infected Android devices, but evidence suggests iOS versions may also exist. Enlarge Big Brother Utopia Researchers have discovered some of the most advanced and full-featured mobile surveillanceware ever seen. Dubbed Monokle and used in the wild since at least March 2016, the Android-based application was developed by a Russian defense contractor that was sanctioned in 2016 for helping that country’s Main Intelligence Directorate meddle in the 2016 US presidential electio
  5. TipTop malware gang was making between $1,500 and $10,500 in daily profits Russian authorities have arrested members of the TipTop cybercrime group, believed to have infected more than 800,000 Android smartphones with malware since 2015. The group operated by renting Android banking trojans from underground hacking forums, which they later hid inside Android apps distributed via search engine ads and third-party app stores. TipTop has been active since 2015, and operators have been making between $1,500 and $10,500 in daily profits, according to
  6. The unprecedented attack on Apple iPhones revealed by Google this week was broader than first thought. Multiple sources with knowledge of the situation said that Google’s own Android operating system and Microsoft Windows PCs were also targeted in a campaign that sought to infect the computers and smartphones of the Uighur ethnic group in China. That community has long been targeted by the Chinese government, in particular in the Xinjiang region, where surveillance is pervasive. Google’s and Microsoft’s operating systems were targeted via the same websites that launched the
  7. Last week at the Android Dev Summit, Google announced a feature that Chrome OS enthusiasts have wanted for years: the ability to sideload Android apps without enabling Developer Mode. We’ve seen code commits in the past that would have enabled this feature, but none of those implementations ever made their way to the stable channel. Now that Google has officially confirmed this feature will arrive in Chrome OS 80, which is set for a stable release in the second week of February 2020, we no longer need to religiously monitor the Chromium Gerrit for this feature addition. As you can
  8. Researchers have discovered a weakness in all version of Android except 9, the most recent release, that can allow an attacker to gather sensitive information such as the MAC address and BSSID name and pinpoint the location of an affected device. The vulnerability is a result of the way that Android broadcasts device information to apps installed on a device. The operating system uses a mechanism known as an intent to send out information between processes or applications, and some of the information about the device’s WiFi network interface sent via a pair of intents c
  9. Epic details technical, security hurdles of "indie" mobile launch In bringing Fortnite to Android this summer, Epic gambled that the biggest video game phenomenon in the world could find success without relying on the centralized Google Play storefront (and its 30 percent cut of all revenues). That gamble seems to have paid off so far—Epic reports 15 million Fortnite downloads and 23 million players on Android just 21 days after the game's beta release. For context, the iOS version of the game saw roughly 11 million installations in its first month, accordin
  10. The new browser might be called Fenix. Firefox is one of the many alternative browsers for Android devices available on the Google Play Store. It’s a favorite of many, especially the privacy-conscious. On Android, though, it has entered a maintenance phase, meaning there are not going to be many updates for the foreseeable future—barring bug fixes and security updates of course. According to Emily Kager, Mobile Engineer at Mozilla, there’s still a lot to look forward to. What does this mean? Well, those who use Firefox for its privacy and security hav
  11. Since the team behind CyanogenMod formed Cyanogen Inc. the community has been wondering just what’s going to come of the new company, what big thing is going to happen as a direct result. Well, one such thing to happen is going to be the introduction of devices running CyanogenMod out of the box, almost like CyanogenMod Nexi, if you will. Recently, we heard that Oppo could be spinning off a part of their company to help Cyanogen Inc with a 2.5 Ghz Snapdragon CPU that could well have been the Snapdragon 805. There’s something fishy going on with Oppo spinning off a new division however, as Pete

But ever since late October, nothing was heard about Sammy’s impressive tablet endeavor. Now Asian site Moveplayer claims they have
  13. According to a Korean publication, the Galaxy S5 will feature a fingerprint scanner rather than an iris scanner when it comes out later this year.The Korea Herald cites industry sources claiming Samsung will use a fingerprint scanner on its upcoming flagship because iris scanning technology is not mature enough for deployment. “Among the different types of biometric sensors that Samsung is testing for its Galaxy S5, the tech giant will go for fingerprint authentication rather than unintuitive user experience of iris recognition”, said the unnamed source. Lee Young Hee, VP of Samsung’s mobile b

  16. Google has updated its gaming options to offer multiplayer support between Android and iOS.

As part of the Game Developers Conference this week in San Francisco, Google announced a bevy of new tools and features for Android game developers to help them attract users and make money. The Google Play app store will be introducing 18 new gaming categories this month to give users and developers a more granular set of options when choosing a game. New categories wi
  17. Google is giving developers tools to push users into updating their apps. Google is giving Android developers a new application programming interface (API) that lets them force users into updating to the latest version of their app. Google revealed at its Android Dev Summit this week that developers will be able to use the new In-app Updates API to create an immediate or flexible in-app update process, which either forces or nudges a user to update an app. Developers can choose which approach is more suitable, depending on how urgent it is that u
  18. Almost a year after promising to release software that would let you turn select Android phones into full-fledged Linux PCs, Samsung is now allowing users to sign up for its Linux on DeX beta program and the company says the private beta will officially launch November 12th. In a nutshell, the software works by allowing you to download a desktop Linux distribution, set it up on a container, and launch it as if it were an Android app. The cool thing is that by supporting Samsung’s DeX platform, you can connect a monitor, mouse, and keyboard to your pho
  19. Dozens of Android users are reporting that the Instagram app isn’t working for them as of Saturday morning, with some posting about problems on mobile on Twitter since late Friday. At least one user reported that logging on led to a blank white screen. As writer Andrew LaSane pointed out on Twitter, the company doesn’t currently list any known issues on its website in spite of the fact that users have been reporting the bug on social media for more than 12 hours. Neither Instagram nor its parent company Facebook had issued any formal response to the complaints as of pub
  20. Hope that free lunch was delicious WHEN JANET JACKSON and Luther Vandross sang that "the best things in life are free", they probably didn't have VPN apps in mind, given the year was 1992 and the song was recorded for a 5.5-rated crime comedy caper. Just as well, because if you currently do get your VPN fix free of charge, it's worth considering what the payoff might involve. As the old adage says: if you're not paying for the product, you are the product. According to a new investigation from Metric Labs - the company behind Top10VPN - the majority of the t
  21. Like almost every company that’s ever tried to build a tablet What is a tablet? What is a tablet supposed to be and do? Nine years ago, these questions were foremost in debates about new technology, as Apple was preparing to introduce its first iPad and rival companies were rushing to beat it to the punch. CES 2010 gave us one answer in the form of the 8.9-inch HP Slate, a Windows 7 PC running on an Intel Atom processor. A few weeks later, Apple’s iPad made its debut with a 9.7-inch screen and mobile chips and software. And then a year after that, Google released
  22. A former Google senior executive, who reportedly received a £70m pay-off after he was accused of sexual harassment by an employee, has hit back at the allegations, saying they are part of a "smear campaign". Andy Rubin, who invented the Android smartphone software, received four years of payments after leaving the internet giant in 2014. He allegedly coerced an employee into performing a sex act on him in a hotel room in 2013, The New York Times reported. When a sexual misconduct claim was made against Rubin, Google asked him to resign. The comp
  23. Following a couple weeks of testing with beta users, Microsoft Launcher version 5.1 is now generally available on Android phones.

  24. Photo by Amelia Holowaty Krales / The Verge Just in time for the holidays, Samsung has begun releasing its Android Pie update for the Galaxy S9. SamMobile was first to notice the German release, while other users on Twitter and Reddit have seen the update become available in the Netherlands and Slovakia as well. Along with the upgrades made by Google, Android Pie on the S9 also brings Samsung’s One UI, a new user experience which is intended to make apps easier to use on larger phones, amongst other improvements. Although this latest update has come to Samsung’s devices a lot more
  25. Just before Christmas, Microsoft has decided to offer those using its Android launcher a nice present in the form of a major update. The latest version of Microsoft Launcher adds integration with some of the Redmond-based company's other mobile apps like Sticky Notes and To-Do, but it also brings Cortana support. For those of you who've been using the beta version of Microsoft Launcher, the latest update is nothing new since all the features and improvements announced recently are part of the previous beta build. But just in case you're not running the beta version of Microsoft Launcher, her
