iOS 8 may come with baked-in Shazam so you can ask Siri what’s playing

StumbleUponShare

Apple has plans to bake Shazam’s music-recognition service directly into iOS, an interesting new report claims.

The plan is to incorporate Shazam into the software in the same way that Facebook and Twitter are, and to allow users to ask Siri what song is playing without opening the Shazam app.

Shazam declined to comment on the matter to TechRadar, however WWDC 2014 is just around the corner and it’s possible we could see the new feature included in iOS 8 when it’s revealed.Integration station

It’s unclear right now whether Apple plans to offer up a new first-party app for all this music recognition data.

The information comes from sources speaking to Bloomberg, one of which also claimed that Apple’s iTunes Radio is currently gearing up for a global release.

It was also reported that Apple is chewing over the idea of putting out iTunes Radio as a standalone app, rather than as just a feature built into the iTunes store as it currently stands.

Android 4.5 preview destined for Nexus 8

StumbleUponShare

It was last October when Android 4.4 KitKat was finally released, which debuted on the Nexus 5 first. We had assumed it would be seen on the Nexus 7 earlier that year, but Google favored the smartphone over the tablet. Even though it has only been 6 months, we now look ahead to Android 4.5, which as yet has no official name, although Lollipop has been mentioned.

With Google I/O 2014 just a couple of months away it stands to reason that we will start to learn more about Android 4.5, and a recent tease does feel us with some excitement, as we get to see just what the new version of the mobile OS will look like – or so we assume.

A recent Android 4.5 preview gives us a good idea of the design of the mobile operating system, and one thing is very clear, it comes with a more simplistic, flatter look compared to KitKat. Comparisons have been made to iOS 7, as this also went for the flat design as well.

With rumors suggesting that Android 4.5 could be released on the Nexus 8 tablet first, we wonder if we are looking at a preview of the Nexus 8 software? Okay, so we had these rumors with the Nexus 7 last year, but with the larger tablet expected to be more popular than the smaller one, it makes sense to release it with the latest and greatest mobile OS available, and not one that would be around 8 months old once released.

Back to the design of Android 4.5 – Let’s say this is the next version of Android we are looking at, then the cleaner design will have a huge effect on the performance of the OS, which you can see just by looking at a side-by-side view of the icons above.

The render shows the icons are flatter and far more simplistic in design. Android Police came up with the renders themselves based on the knowledge they have so far.

Again, we expect Google to announce Android 4.5 at its I/O event on June 25th, but what device will it make it to first?

You can add us to your circle on Google+, follow us on Twitter, or like our Facebook page to keep updated on all the latest news.

How to set a mobile data limit on the Galaxy S3, S4 or S5

StumbleUponShare

Data limits are the bane of many people’s existence. They’re a necessary evil but always seem to run out just when you need them and then you get hit with crazy excess charges or ‘shaping’ that cuts your data flow to a trickle. Galaxy devices make it nice and easy for you to set a mobile data limit to avoid running out of data entirely or bringing on some bill shock at the end of the month.


Holding the reins when it comes to data usage is essential in these LTE/download booster times. / © AndroidPIT

On the Galaxy S3 just hit Settings > Connections tab > Data Usage > Set Mobile Data Limit and enter whatever data limit you like before you get a warning. Our screenshots are an international Galaxy S3 running Samsung’s Android 4.3 firmware.

On the Galaxy S4 it’s exactly the same path: Settings > Connections tab > Data Usage > Set Mobile Data Limit. Depending on what version of Android you have or what custom ROM you might be running, the path may be slightly different. Our screenshot is an international Galaxy S4 running Samsung’s Android 4.4.2.

The Galaxy S5 is slightly different due to the new TouchWiz, but it’s just as easy: Settings > Quick Settings > Data Usage > Set Mobile Data Limit. Our Galaxy S5 is, of course, running the straight-out-of-the-box Android 4.4.2 firmware.

Note: You will only see the Set Mobile Data Limit option if you have a data enabled SIM card inserted.

Mobile data limits can be set on any device running Android 4.0+. Just look for the Data Usage section in your Settings.

Do you use this feature? What other ways do you keep track of your data usage?

How to download files faster on the Samsung Galaxy S5

StumbleUponShare

Did you know that you could download files faster on the Galaxy S5? Samsung’s new Android flagship comes with a built-in ‘Download Booster’ mode that basically allows you to use the speeds of Wi-Fi and 4G LTE networks combined. This will come in handy, especially for users who are in a hurry to download a big file.

Enabling ‘Download Booster’ is as simple as it gets – you just have to know that the option exists. On most Galaxy S5, to enable download booster, you need to first have enabled Mobile Data and Wi-Fi, and then slide down from the top to bring the notification shade. Slide the toggles to the left, and – by default – that’s where the ‘Download Booster’ mode resides.

If you cannot find it there, make sure to double-check: just open Settings and look for the Download Booster icon. By default, it’s a blue icon appearing at the top-most row, and you can enable it from there as well.

Some Galaxy S5 devices, however, might lack this new mode. In fact, the three biggest US carriers – Verizon Wireless, AT&T, Sprint – have negotiated to have the feature removed to avoid having their networks hogged. The only big US carrier that seemingly supports it for the moment is T-Mobile.

Finally, keep in mind that by using your 4G LTE connection to download large files, you’ll quickly deplete your monthly data allowance. Moreover, you may run into overage fees on some carriers. The ‘Download Booster’ could be a useful feature for those times when you need to get files as quickly as possible, but make sure to use it with caution.

HTC One (M8) Dot View Cover Review

StumbleUponShare

When HTC introduced its brand new HTC One (M8) smartphone, it also debuted a brand new, and very unique, accessory for the device. It’s called the Dot View cover, and it basically allows you to see alerts, answer incoming calls, view the time and weather, and more, all without ever opening the cover or turning on your phone. The device will soon be available in several colors for $49.99, but we had a gray unit that we tested with our HTC One (M8), and wanted to bring you a quick review on what it has to offer.

We aren’t usually fans of flip-view style cases, no matter who it’s from, mainly because the flap always seems to get in the way of what we’re trying to do.Usually, we just want to dive right in and look at the phone and start interacting. The dot view is a bit different, though, in that it allows us to interact a bit without having to open it at all (competitors, like Samsung and LG, have similar interactive cases but they use a window instead).

Dot View basically protects the back of your phone with a thin plastic cover, and then the front has a dot-matrix style design with semi-clear holes that let light shine through. Underneath, the phone does all of the work by displaying information on the screen. Double tap the display, like you would if you didn’t have a case on, and the screen lights up with information. If it’s cloudy, you’ll see that. It’ll also then show the temperature. Or, you can swipe up to answer a call, swipe down to end the call. You can talk without ever opening the cover. We will note you have to be deliberate on your touch.

We don’t like that you have to hold it awkwardly to take a picture, it makes it feel like you’re going to fumble and drop the phone. Also, when it’s open, the cover doesn’t really bend with the curve of the phone and that makes holding it a bit uncomfortable. It does a good job of protecting the phone, however, and it seems popular enough, it’s already sold out.

We definitely liked using it for the past few days, but we’re probably still going to let the HTC One (M8) run naked because we love the design. It’s still a great case, though, and one of the best flip-style cases we’ve ever tested. Check out our video above and gallery below for a closer look.

Ripping CDs and DVDs Will Be Legal in U.K. in June

StumbleUponShare

Starting in June, folks in the U.K. will legally be allowed to rip their media—CDs and DVDs—for personal use. After thorough examination of current copyright laws, officials have decided that consumers have the right to rip their collection of media. The U.K.’s Intellectual Property Office said the change will also broaden other forms of fair use without harming copyright holders. If, for example, you have a DVD and want to put it on your iPad, you can do so without infringing copyright.

“This measure will benefit technology firms by removing barriers and costs and improving entry to technology markets, which rely on customers being able to make private copies,” a government official said.

Most notably, consumers will able to store their backups in the cloud, which opens up plenty of nefarious opportunities. However, officials stressed that sharing media will remain illegal. That’s a pretty big temptation that many consumers will come face-to-face with when the law changes this June. Folks likely already make digital copies of their physical media, but it will be in the public consciousness even more once the revision goes into effect. In a government-commissioned survey, 85-percent of consumers in the U.K. said they already thought DVD and CD ripping was legal.

Officials also state that physical media can be re-sold, but backup copies of said media will be required to be destroyed. Additionally, U.K. citizens will also have the freedom to quote from or parody the work of others under the new revision, as long as folks properly cite the content’s creator. The changes will start being enforced in June, so hold off for now on ripping your 90s music collection. You can read all the changes at the source link below.

Office Mobile is now completely free to use on Android and iPhone

StumbleUponShare

Microsoft’s big news on Thursday was the introduction of Office for iPad, which is part of the Redmond company’s “mobile first, cloud first approach.” But the company also dropped a smaller announcement among the iPad news, making Office Mobile for iPhone and Android completely free.


There are a few caveats involved (if you’re a business), though the optimized apps will give users access to view and edit Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents right from their mobile device. Documents you edit will then be synced across OneDrive, and show up across your other devices with Microsoft’s Office suite.

You can sign up for a free Microsoft account to create, edit and save documents for home use. But if you’re a business, you’ll need a qualifying Office 365 subscription in order to create and edit documents. If you’re a student or just use Office casually, however, you can get the goodness of Microsoft’s productivity suite for free—and that’s great. Of course, making the mobile apps free is likely just Microsoft’s way of encouraging you to pony up for an Office 365 subscription on the desktop, or on the iPad.

It appears as though both the iPhone and Android updates are already live in their respective stores, so head on over to begin working on your mobile documents. Making the apps free is a nice touch on Microsoft’s part. It’s just too bad Office for iPad didn’t receive the same treatment (if you want to create and edit), although the suite of does look very beautiful.
