New iPhone 6s Camera Rumors Emerge

1 hour 53 min ago

New iPhone 6s Camera Rumors Emerge is a post by Craig Lloyd from Gotta Be Mobile.

The iPhone 6s is expected to get upgrades all around, and a new report suggests that the device’s camera will get a bump from 8 megapixels to 12 megapixels.

Of course, a bump up to 12 megapixels by itself isn’t entirely beneficial, as megapixels certainly aren’t everything, but it’s also rumored that the iPhone 6s will get an all-new camera sensor made by Sony, which includes RGBW coding technology.

Essentially what this means is that the device adds a white sub-pixel alongside the standard RGB pixels, which can improve image quality greatly, especially in low-light conditions.

This report comes from Feng.com, which also says that the dual-lens camera system that has been rumored for the iPhone 6s is a no-go, despite the many reports on it earlier this year, but we wouldn’t be surprised if Apple was holding out in order to make it better, as it’s still a rather new technology right now.

It’s been rumored that the next iPhone could see major camera improvements, with Daring Fireball’s John Gruber saying that he was told the next iPhone would include a dual-lens camera system, and the camera improvements would move the image quality into DSLR territory, which we’d have to take with a giant grain of salt, as no camera will be able to match the image quality of a decent DSLR.

Two-lens camera systems in smartphones are nothing new by any means, as the HTC One M8 includes two lenses, but it’s certainly something that isn’t common, and if it’s a system that will drastically increase image quality, we wouldn’t doubt if Apple was at least checking it out and testing it as we speak.

A 12-megapixel sensor is entirely possible, though, and we wouldn’t be surprised to see that in the next iPhone. In any case, it’s almost a given that the iPhone 6s will come with a better camera, and reports over the last couple of months have deemed that a big likelihood. Some reports even suggest that the iPhone 6s could see the biggest camera boost that the iPhone has ever received.

There’s no doubt that the next iPhone will be able to take much better photos than the iPhone 6, and that’s something we expect, but we’ll have to wait until later this year to really find out what Apple has in store for the iPhone 6s’s camera.

Other iPhone 6s rumors that have been trickling in include Force Touch technology on the iPhone 6s’s screen, which has been rumored in the past and it’s being rumored yet again, so it appears that this could be a pretty solid bet.

On the Apple Watch, Force Touch allows users to essentially initiate certain actions based on how hard they press down on the screen. For instance, a heavy press could bring up a menu of sorts, while a light tap would select something. Theoretically, it’s similar to how left-click and right-click work on a mouse, and we could easily see that type of technology come to the iPhone at some point.

A similar technology to Force Touch was also revealed in the new MacBook earlier this week at the Apple Watch event. The trackpad received an upgrade, and while it’s still made out of the same glass material, it’s now pressure sensitive and you can click it anywhere, instead of just from one side like previous trackpads. The pressure sensitivity is used for what Apple is calling “force clicks,” which will allows you to press hard on an address in the Mail app to get a location (for example). You can also use force clicks in Finder to see a preview of whatever is inside a folder.

It definitely seems that Apple is expanding this type of technology to its various products, and the iPhone 6s could be next.

More Free Witcher 3: Wild Hunt DLC This Week, Update Available

2 hours 8 min ago

More Free Witcher 3: Wild Hunt DLC This Week, Update Available is a post by Travis Pope from Gotta Be Mobile.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt may have only went on sale this past Tuesday, but it’s already picking up another round of free downloadable extras. At the same time as it’s delivering that free downloadable content The Witcher 3: Wild Hunts’ developer is also releasing a fresh round of feature fixes and changes for those who ran into problems after last week’s launch.

CD Projekt Red, the game’s developer announced the free Witcher 3: Wild Hunt content this morning on its Facebook page. The new Contract: Missing Miners quest and an a new look for character Yennefer are just the latest two pieces of free DLC to be given away by the developer. The game launched last week with two other free pieces of downloadable content.

Contract: Missing Miners is a quest and side-mission that focuses on the hunt for miners in the village of Skellige. Suddenly, people who work in the village’s mines are disappearing and it’s Geralt’s job to dive into the situation and find out exactly what’s happening to them. That new look for Yennefer the sorceress isn’t likely to excite a lot of people, but it’s still free content nonetheless. CD Projekt Red’s post on the free Witcher 3: Wild Hunt content only indicates that the downloads will be ready sometime this week. Exactly what day remains unclear.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt isn’t just getting free content. It’s also receiving an update to address some of the issues players on Windows PCs ran into over the last few days. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt for PC 1.04 is available now, according to CD Projekt Red, and fixes some key issues for games. Dialogue in the PC version of the game would sometimes loop thanks to a small bug. This update fixes that. Players can now rebind every key on their keyboard to make the game more suited too their control schemes. Gas clouds that suddenly explode are addressed in the update as well as another issue that prevented users from setting their resolution to 1280 x 720p.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is this month’s must have new video game. Why that is can be distilled into three main points. First, its incredibly detailed. Second, it’s incredibly large. Third CD Projekt Red is doing a pretty decent job of taking care of fans.

The game takes place in a vast open world filled with tons, treasures and places to explore. Small towns and city centers dot the game’s landscape, but interspersed between them are cave systems, oceans and large habitats that dangerous creatures make their home. The character controlled player in the game, Geralt travels the different regions, hunting and assisting inhabitants whenever he can. At some point he finds himself standing between the Wild Hunt, a ruthless destructive force, and his native lands.

CD Projekt Red spared no detail in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. Tons of different systems keep the world feeling alive and teeming with possibility. Every animal in the game is part of a larger ecosystem, meaning killing a predator could result in huge changes in wild life for a specific area. There’s a day and night system that simulates the passing of time. A dynamic beard growing system also helps drive the point about time being a valuable commodity home for players.

CD Projekt Red is committed to providing downloadable content free to all players, but large game expansions aren’t included in that commitment.

Unfortunately for gamers with older systems, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt isn’t something they can get for their Xbox 360 or PS3. There are only two versions of the game available on consoles and they are for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4. A new disc-based or digital copy of the The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt costs $59.99 from the Xbox Store, PlayStation Store and GameStop.

How to Transfer iTunes Music to the Galaxy S6

Mon, 05/25/2015 - 16:08

How to Transfer iTunes Music to the Galaxy S6 is a post by Cory Gunther from Gotta Be Mobile.

If you’ve recently switched from an iPhone to Samsung’s impressive Galaxy S6 or Galaxy S6 Edge, the guide below will explain how to transfer your iTunes music to the new Galaxy S6. Most users have a huge collection of music they want to transfer, and get a bit overwhelmed with the entire idea. There are a few ways to do this, and below we’ll cover a few different options.

Samsung’s new Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge are both impressive phones that have many iPhone users making the switch to Android. It features a stunning display and is the best Galaxy smartphone to date, and now that users have it, they’ll need to transfer all of those iTunes songs over to Android.

Read: How to Switch from iPhone to Android: The Google Way

First off users will want to read the easy to follow and complete how to switch guide linked to above and compiled by Google, which goes over everything from contacts and pictures, to that entire iTunes music collection. Then, head on past the break for even more details, click & drag instructions, and even some software that will sync everything (including movies and TV shows) for you.

With the latest iPhone 6 release Apple debuted a new tool to help users switch from Android to Apple, and Google did the same with the tool above. It’s a continuous back and forth trying to get consumers to each side, but when it’s all said and done one of the most important things on an iPhone is music.

Instructions

Owners looking to transfer all their iTunes music to the Galaxy S6 can use a USB cord and do it the old fashion way by clicking and dragging folders, transfer it with a one-click tool or program, or even over WiFi, so lets get started.

Advertisement (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Drag & Drop

My preferred method for the most control is simply using the drag and drop method by connecting the Galaxy S6 to a Windows computer or Mac, and manually dragging the entire iTunes Music folder onto the Galaxy S6. Users can choose certain albums, songs, or move the entire folder if the Galaxy S6 has enough storage available.

First you’ll need to find where your iTunes music is stores on your computer, and below are the typical locations.

  • Windows XP – C:\Documents and Settings\ (username)\ My Documents \My Music \iTunes
  • Windows 7, Windows Vista and Windows 8 – C:\ (username) \My Music \iTunes
  • Mac OS X – /users /username/ Music/ iTunes

Once you’ve found your iTunes music folder you’ll want to open that and have it handy on the desktop, and now simply plug in your Galaxy S6 via USB to your computer. Users may need to pulldown the notification bar on the Galaxy S6 and select USB options to turn on Media Transfer Protocol (MTP). Although this is usually the method of USB it uses when plugged in. If you’re on a Mac you’ll need to quickly install the Android File Transfer program. Once you plug in the Galaxy S6 you’ll see the entire device storage list, and navigate to Music.

From here all you need to do is simply click on the iTunes Music folder you left on your desktop and drag it into the “Music” folder on your Galaxy S6. It may take a while depending on the size, and speed of your computer or USB port.

Easily click and drag your entire music collection to the Galaxy S6

Shown above is an image from my computer where I’m transferring 14GB of music from iTunes right into my Samsung Galaxy S6. This is the easiest method as I can click and drag the entire file, or open the iTunes music folder and select individual songs or albums, if the entire music collection isn’t needed. It’s worth noting that the Galaxy S6 doesn’t have a micro-SD slot, so don’t use all your storage space on music.

Once this finishes you’re all done. Owners can now unplug the Galaxy S6 and enjoy all their iTunes music right on the Galaxy S6. There’s a dedicated music player on the Galaxy S6, Google Music will find all the music on your device, or download a media player from the Google Play Store like DoubleTwist. That app also has a sync and transfer tool, for those who want multiple options or ways to get iTunes music on the Galaxy S6.

iTunes to Android Transfer

Another option for those who’d rather not dig through files and folders looking for the right stuff, is a program called iTunes to Android Transfer. This is a free tool you can download on Windows or MAC, and it simply syncs you entire music collection, playlists, movies and more with the click of a button.

Install iTunes to Android on your PC or Mac, and run it. The software will be opened together with your iTunes library. Then just plug the USB cable to connect your Galaxy S6 or S6 Edge to the computer. There are two options you can choose: “Sync iTunes to Android” and “Clean Up iTunes Library”.

Click on “Sync iTunes to Android”, you can choose “Entire library” or “Selected playlists” to sync iTunes to your Galaxy S6 phone. Music, Movies, TV Sows, My favorite, POP Music and Top 10 are supported.

Alternatively users can also use this tool to manually click and drag songs or albums as shown above, similar to what we mentioned earlier, just using their interface instead which streamlines the process for you.

It’s worth noting that this tool will also let you transfer contacts, pictures, videos, books and more from your computer to the Galaxy S6.

Google Play Music

Last but not least is by using the Google Play Music Manager. This is another excellent route, as you can use it to move all the music over WiFi to your device, or to the Cloud so you don’t use up all the space on the Galaxy S6. Google Play Music allows users to store 50,000 songs in the cloud, which should be more than enough for just about everyone.

Head to Google Play Music in a web browser on your computer. Tap the three lines at the top left and scroll down to “upload music”. From here you’ll be instructed to download the Google Play Music Manager tool.

Once you install the Music Manager and sign into your Gmail account, it will instantly find and start uploading all of your music from iTunes to the cloud. You can select preferences and choose specific songs, or the entire iTunes music library from your computer. This also may take a while, and you’ll want to open Google Play Music on your Galaxy S6 and head into settings. It will block explicit songs in mixes by default, or upload clean versions, so turn that off. There’s also an option to cache music during playback, where the Galaxy S6 will temporarily save songs to the device.

However, if you only transfer music to the Google cloud, you’ll be streaming your iTunes music over the internet with WiFi or your data connection, and you may churn through a 2GB monthly data plan in a matter of days. Google Play Music remains one of the best options around for the interface, options, and 50,000 song storage limit, but you’ll want to make sure you aren’t streaming music 24/7 or it will use up all your data.

It’s worth noting that the steps mentioned above will transfer an entire iTunes music collection to any Android device, not just the Galaxy S6. Do this on your HTC One M9, LG G4, Samsung Galaxy Tab and more. Now, enjoy all of your music on your Android device of choice.

5 Wii U Games We Expect to See at E3 2015

Mon, 05/25/2015 - 13:45

5 Wii U Games We Expect to See at E3 2015 is a post by Travis Pope from Gotta Be Mobile.

Every year millions of gamers around the world stop what they’re doing. They clear their schedules of any distractions and work hard to make sure that they don’t have any errands during launch time. These gamers find the nearest television set or internet-equipped device and settle in for all the biggest video game announcements coming from their favorite studios and platform makers.

Historically, Sony and Microsoft have always had the most attention lavished on their briefings. That could change with E3 2015. This year, it seems just as many people are hyped for the Nintendo E3 2015 Press Event as everyone else’s and that’s because of just how spectacular the company has handled itself in the last year or so. Having reduced the price of its Wii U gaming console as the Xbox One and PS4 hit store shelves, Nintendo focused on delivering experiences users just couldn’t get anywhere else.

Read: 8 Xbox One Games We Expect to See at E3 2015

Super Smash Bros was a big hit for the company on both the Wii U and the Nintendo 3DS. Mario Kart 8 was hit for the company too. Nintendo recently shared the code name for its NX follow-up to the Wii U, tough it isn’t ready to talk about the console in detail yet. Follow all of that up with a commitment to developing Nintendo iPhone games and the stage is set. E3 2015 could be Nintendo’s break out year.

Here are 5 Wii U games we expect to see at E3 2015.

.gbmslideshow { border-width: 0px; } #gbmslideshow { border-width: 0px; } Star Fox Wii U1 / 5

By far, Star Fox was the biggest showstopper at E3 2014. Nostalgia and a longing for a simpler time was a big factor in that. There are millions of adults around the world who all discovered gaming when their parents purchased them a Nintendo 64 and Star Fox 64.

In Star Fox you’re the pilot of your own space plane and other rescue vehicles. Using bombs and power-ups you’re trying to end the reign of every enemy in sight. In some of the basic levels from past games you had a team of people to help. Star Fox for Wii U mixes it up a bit.

Read: Star Fox for Wii U is on its Way

First, there’s the new vehicles. A tank, a helicopter and a refreshed Airwing. Gamers will still use these vehicles to stop enemies, but Nintendo is rethinking the Star Fox experience for a new generation of gamers. The Wii U GamePad has its own screen and Star Fox Wii U uses that screen to give users a look at the their cockpit. Moving the Wii U GamePad changes the camera angle on-screen. Nintendo is aiming for an episodic story this time around.

When we’ll see Star Fox Wii U launch is unclear at this point. Early on it was believed that Star Fox Wii U was coming this year. Nintendo hasn’t said much about the game since last year’s show.

iPhone 6s vs. iPhone 6: 5 Things to Know in May

Sun, 05/24/2015 - 16:29

iPhone 6s vs. iPhone 6: 5 Things to Know in May is a post by Adam Mills from Gotta Be Mobile.

In May, we’ve started to see iPhone 6s rumors emerge at a breakneck pace teasing smartphone enthusiasts and smartphone buyers. With the month coming to a close, we want to take a look at the five most important things you need to know about the inevitable iPhone 6s vs iPhone 6 matchup.

Apple’s 4.7-inch iPhone 6 is still one of the top smartphones on the market thanks to its impressive array of features. And it will remain one of the market’s top smartphones for much of 2015 because Apple still isn’t ready to unleash a successor for it or the iPhone 6 Plus.

As we’ve moved deeper into the year, we’ve started to hear more about iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus successors and what the company has in store for the iPhone in 2015. iPhone 6s rumors are rampant in the build up to WWDC 2015 though the company isn’t expected to announce new phones there.

Apple’s new iPhone isn’t confirmed but thanks to these rumors and leaks, we have a pretty good read on what to expect months ahead of the device’s launch date. Nothing is confirmed until Apple takes the stage but we have enough to start making some early comparisons.

This comparison focuses on the most important things to know about how the current iPhone 6s rumors compare to the iPhone 6. The iPhone 6s vs iPhone 6 matchup isn’t set in stone but this quick outline of what we’ve seen in May will help set your expectations as we push deeper into the year towards a iPhone 6s release.

.gbmslideshow { border-width: 0px; } #gbmslideshow { border-width: 0px; } iPhone 6s Release Date Rumors1 / 5

It's May and you're interested to hear how the iPhone 6s is stacking up with the iPhone 6 so far. Well, the first thing that we'll tell you is that we still have a long way to go before the iPhone 6s rumor cycle matures and a long way to go before the iPhone 6s is announced. It's still early. 

Advertisement (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Apple hasn't announced anything yet but it's clear that WWDC will be about products not called iPhone. iOS 9, iOS 8.4, a new Apple TV, and a new Apple Music streaming service are all but confirmed for Apple's June 8th keynote and there's virtually no chance that we'll see the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus arrive there. 

Instead, May iPhone 6s release rumors have pointed to an arrival later this year, probably in the fall alongside iOS 9.

One rumor comes from the very credible KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo who claims that iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus production will start in mid-to-late August.

Kuo believes that Apple will announce the new iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus models in August and that they will arrive on store shelves in September. Not everyone agrees though. 9to5Mac claims that there is no truth to the August rumors. 

August, September or otherwise, it appears that consumers still have a wait ahead of them. For those of you that are set on buying one or the other, it means several more weeks of iPhone 6s rumors and more enticing iPhone 6 deals

Madden 16: 7 Things EA Needs to Fix

Sun, 05/24/2015 - 16:15

Madden 16: 7 Things EA Needs to Fix is a post by Josh Smith from Gotta Be Mobile.

The Madden 16 release is coming in August, and EA Sports is teasing some new features. After successfully fixing some of our biggest complaints last year, we are hopeful that the new features and upgraded gameplay will solve our biggest complaints.

EA promises a new focus on passing and on the playmakers in the game, as we see in the latest Madden 16 trailer. This is great and we cannot wait to see all the new Madden 16 features. We have a short list of Madden 16 features we want EA to add to the game and things that they really need to fix this year.

The Madden 16 release date is set for August 25th and with EA Access we expect to play Madden early the week before the release even if there isn’t a demo. EA Sports does not reveal all the new features at once, so while there is promising information about some of these items we don’t know exactly what all EA has planned for the new Madden game.

EA once again offers two versions of the game The Madden 16 Deluxe Edition is $69.99 and includes, “36 Madden Ultimate Team Pro Packs featuring NFL super stars of the past and present plus the pre-order exclusive Playmaker Pack.” The regular version of Madden 16 is $59.99. EA Sports plans to release Madden 16 for PS4, Xbox One, PS3 and Xbox 360.

Here are seven things we want EA to add to Madden 16 or features that are overdue for a fix in the Madden 16 release.

.gbmslideshow { border-width: 0px; } #gbmslideshow { border-width: 0px; } Madden 16: 7 Things EA Needs to FixInterceptions & Turnovers1 / 7

EA Sports needs to deliver a better mix of turnovers and interceptions in Madden 16. While playing hours of Madden 15 the number of unexplainable interceptions and other turnovers was too high. Some games it was impossible to make a single throw without an interception while playing. We also ran into our fair share of fumbles where the player literally turned and tossed the ball back and away with no one around.

Advertisement (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

There is hope that EA heard our complaints and plans to fix this in Madden 16. With a combination of Touch Control Passing and new receiver and defender Controls we are hopeful that EA fixed the randomness of interceptions, and adds some skill to both sides of the passing game.

We know that interceptions happen and that we will fumble at key moments, but Madden 16 can do a better job of normalizing the occurrence of turnovers and putting more control in the hands of the player.

Galaxy Note 5 vs Galaxy Note 4: 5 Things to Know in May

Sat, 05/23/2015 - 16:16

Galaxy Note 5 vs Galaxy Note 4: 5 Things to Know in May is a post by Adam Mills from Gotta Be Mobile.

In May, we’ve started to see Samsung Galaxy Note 5 rumors emerge at a breakneck pace teasing smartphone enthusiasts and smartphone buyers. With the month coming to a close, we want to take a look at the five most important things you need to know about the inevitable Galaxy Note 5 vs Galaxy Note 4 matchup.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is still one of the top smartphones on the market thanks to its impressive array of features. The device will remain one of the best Android phones for the foreseeable future as Samsung works behind the scenes preparing its successor.

As we’ve moved away from the Galaxy S6 release, we’ve started to hear more about a Galaxy Note 4 successor and what Samsung has in store for the Galaxy Note series in 2015. Galaxy Note 5 rumors are rampant but so are rumors of another device, a Galaxy S6 Edge style version of the Galaxy Note Edge.

Samsung’s new Galaxy Note isn’t confirmed but thanks to these rumors and leaks, we have a pretty good read on what to expect months ahead of the device’s launch date. Nothing is confirmed until Samsung takes the stage but we have enough to start making some early comparisons.

This comparison focuses on the most important things to know about how the current Galaxy Note 5 rumors compare to the Galaxy Note 4. The Galaxy Note 5 vs Galaxy Note 4 matchup isn’t set in stone but this quick outline of what we’ve seen in May will help set your expectations as we push deeper into the year towards a Galaxy Note 5 release.

.gbmslideshow { border-width: 0px; } #gbmslideshow { border-width: 0px; } You're Going To Be Waiting Awhile1 / 5

It's May and you're interested to hear how the Galaxy Note 5 is stacking up with the Galaxy Note 4 so far. Well, the first thing that we'll tell you is that we still have a long way to go before the Galaxy Note 5 rumor cycle matures and a long way to go before the Galaxy Note 5 is announced. In other words, we're still very early in the process. 

Advertisement (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Earlier this month, a report from Korean outlet WhoWired Korea made the rounds and it outlined some potential Galaxy Note 5 launch details. The publication claimed that Samsung would expedite the Galaxy Note 5 release in an effort to combat the rumored iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. 

The report also claimed that the company planned to finalize the Galaxy Note 5 in June and start taking Galaxy Note 5 pre-orders soon after. It said that the launch would coincide with the arrival of Samsung Pay, Samsung’s Apple Pay competitor.

Seems Samsung caught wind of the report because Samsung's JK Shin took the time to dismiss the rumors. He didn't elaborate but he didn't have to. The fact that he addressed these rumors is unusual and our guess is that he is trying to set consumer and investor expectations accordingly.   

Samsung always announces the Galaxy Note at IFA and IFA kicks off on September 4th. There's no reason, at this point, to believe that it will announce anywhere else. So, if you're thinking about buying the Note 4 or the Note 5 or both, you're probably going to be looking at the Galaxy Note 4 for several more months at least.

13 Gmail Tips & Tricks

Sat, 05/23/2015 - 16:05

13 Gmail Tips & Tricks is a post by Craig Lloyd from Gotta Be Mobile.

Gmail is one of the most popular email services around, but you might not be taking advantage of all of its features. Here are 13 Gmail tips and tricks that you can use when sending your next email.

If you can believe it, Gmail has been around for over 11 years, and it has grown significantly during that time, with added features and better designs. Currently, Gmail is at an all-time high, and the great thing about it is that it has kept the simplicity over the years that initially made Gmail so great, while still adding on necessary features and tweaking the overall design for the better.

However, one thing that many users don’t know about Gmail is that all of those features simply are not being used, and most users could benefit from them, whether it’s saving time by setting up canned responses or disabling new email notifications in order to focus and be more productive after lunch time.

Here are 13 Gmail tips and tricks that you can use in order to get more out of Google’s email service.

Undo Sent Emails

If you accidentally sent an email prematurely before you were ready to send it, there’s a feature in Gmail that you can enable that allows you to undo a sent email within a given period of time.

The feature gives you up to 30 seconds to undo an email after you sent it, which can be great if you forgot to include an attachment or any other important bit of information, that way you don’t look like an idiot when you have to send a second email with further information or attachments.

Advertisement (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Simply click the gear icon in the upper-right corner of the web page and select Settings. Under the General tab, find Undo Send and place a checkmark next to Enable Undo Send. Then, select a time period from the drop-down menu, which will be the amount of time you’ll have to undo a sent email.

Add Multiple Accounts on iPhone

If you have multiple Gmail email accounts and want access to all of them on your iPhone, you can add them with ease and have multiple Gmail accounts with you while you’re on the go.

One method is to add your Google account to iOS in Settings and then use the built-in Mail app to access your Gmail accounts.

The second method is the easier way, where you simply download the Gmail app from the App Store and then add your multiple Gmail accounts directly within the app. There are pros and cons to each, and from there, you can decide which one would be best for you.

Stop Gmail from Adding Events to Google Calendar

About a month ago, Google added a capability to Gmail and Google Calendar that allows Gmail to automatically add events it see in your email to your Google Calendar, but you can disable this feature easily.

Essentially, it scans your Gmail email and automatically creates new events based on emails you receive that include dates and times, etc. This means that when you receive confirmations from buying game tickets, make a hotel reservation, or booking a flight, Gmail and Google Calendar will automatically add that event to your calendar.

To disable this feature, go to your Google Calendar and click on the gear icon in the upper-right corner of the screen. Select Settings. Find the setting called Events in Gmail and uncheck Add automatically. Click Continue when the pop-up appears and then scroll back up and click Save toward the upper-left corner of the screen.

Reply & Archive Emails in One Click

If you’re all about efficiency and want to move through your inbox as quickly as possible, there’s one trick that I’d recommend learning.

When replying to an email, Gmail allows you to click one button to send that reply and then archive the email, so essentially two steps done in one click. However, it might not be enabled on your Gmail account, but that’s a quick fix.

Simply click on the gear icon in the upper-right corner of the screen and select Settings. Within the General tab, find Send and Archive. Then select Show “Send & Archive” button in reply. Scroll down to the bottom and click Save changes.

Set Up Canned Responses

Google calls this feature “email for the truly lazy.” Canned responses are pre-written email replies that you can save and send in common emails that you receive. For instance, if you receive a lot of emails that ask the same question, you can come up with a canned response for it to automatically send back, thus saving time on your end.

To enable the ability to set up canned responses, click the gear icon in the upper-right corner of the web page and select Settings. Click on the Labs tab at the top and scroll down and find the feature called Canned Responses. Select Enable to the right of it and then scroll all the way down and click Save changes.

Enable Vacation Mode

If you’ll be on vacation and won’t have access to your Gmail account during that time, don’t leave those who send you emails hanging around waiting for a reply. Instead, you can enable a vacation responder.

Simply click on the gear icon in the upper-right corner of the screen and select Settings. Within the General tab, find Vacation Responder. Then enable it and type in a message that will automatically be sent to anyone that sends you an email. You can then select when you want it enabled. From there, scroll down and click Save changes.

Reply vs Reply All

When you reply to an email, you have the option of replying to only the person who sent the email, or you can reply back to everyone who was copied in on the email.

In Gmail, you can make either one of these options the default choice for whenever you go to reply to an email.

Simply click on the gear icon in the upper-right corner of the screen and select Settings. Within the General tab, find Default reply behavior. Then select either Reply or Reply all. You can then select when you want it enabled. From there, scroll down and click Save changes.

Separate Unread Emails from Everything Else

If you like to be organized, but your Gmail inbox is getting a bit too messy, you can organize it a little bit by separating unread emails from everything else in your inbox, which can clean things up a bit.

Click on the gear icon in the upper-right corner of the screen and select Settings. Within the Inbox tab, go the first setting toward the top, which is Inbox type. Select Unread first within the drop-down menu.

Then, below that there is what’s called Inbox sections. You’ll have Unread and Everything else. Checking out the Options for each of these lets you customize it a bit.

Connect Another Email Account

If you have multiple Gmail accounts that you want to sort of merge into one, you can use your primary Gmail account to fetch any new emails from your other Gmail accounts, as well as send emails from your other Gmail accounts through your primary account.

Just click on the gear icon in the upper-right corner of the screen and select Settings. Then, go to the Accounts and Import tab. From there, you can use POP3 to fetch email from another Gmail account, as well as add an email address to send new mail from without having to log into that account every time.

Take Advantage of Filters

Do you just want email from a specific sender to go straight to the trash? Or do you want attach a label to an email if it mentions something specific? These are what filters are for.

Click on the gear icon in the upper-right corner of the screen and select Settings. Then, go to the Filters tab and begin creating your filters! In my case, I have a filter that applies a special label whenever an email contains the word “unsubscribe” and I also have filters for when I receive specific important emails and make sure that they don’t accidentally go into the spam folder.

There are obviously a lot of different filter options to choose from, but it’s a feature that’s incredibly useful in Gmail.

Give Gmail a Makeover

If you’re not a fan of the default look of the Gmail user interface, you can change it up in the settings.

Click on the gear icon in the upper-right corner of the screen and select Settings. Then, go to the Themes tab and you’ll be shown a handful of different themes that you can choose from in order to give your Gmail account a much-needed makeover.

Personally, I like to keep things simple, so I stick with the default look, but if you want to give Gmail a bit more character, this is how to do it.

Archive or Delete an Email from Android Notifications

If you’re on Android, you can quickly archive or delete emails right from the notification bar, and which option you want depends on what you have set up in the settings.

Under General settings in the Gmail app, there will be a settings called Gmail default action, and you can change this to either Archive or Delete. Choosing one will allow you to either archive or delete an email right from the notification bar on your Android device.

Disable Mobile Notifications

If you need to get some work done with any distractions, you can easily disable new email notifications from popping up on your phone.

On iPhone, open the Gmail app and tap on the menu bar in the upper-left corner to bring up the sidebar. Then tap on the gear icon and select None under Notifications.

Once you’re done with work and want your notifications back, simply just back into this settings menu and tap on All New Mail to begin receiving alerts again.

How to do Every Brutality in Mortal Kombat X

Fri, 05/22/2015 - 21:45

How to do Every Brutality in Mortal Kombat X is a post by Travis Pope from Gotta Be Mobile.

You wouldn’t think that gameplay could get more brutal than the Fatalities that are featured in Mortal Kombat X, the fighting game available on the Xbox One and PS4 now and coming to the Xbox 360 and PS3 this summer. Fatalities are down-right gut-wrenching at times, and Mortal Kombat X Brutalities give Fatalities a run for their money.

Like Fatalities, Brutalities are different ways to kill your opponent once you’ve won a match. Mortal Kombat X Brutalities go so far beyond just learning a simple button combination. They’re complicated and ridiculously hard to pull off when your chest is pounding after successfully winning a match.

Read: How to do Every Fatality in Mortal Kombat X So Far

Some Brutalities are available the moment you venture into the game, ready for you to master the moment you’re ready to practice for hours. Others have to be unlocked inside of Mortal Kombat X’s different Krypts. Building on the work of the LazyGamer and community members at IGN, GottaBeMobile has compiled the ultimate guide on how to do every Brutality available in Mortal Kombat X. Here’s a video of every single Brutality in Mortal Kombat X.

Each Brutality is divided by character and listed in alphabetical order. Listed in the What You Need to Know Section is the conditions that have to be met for the Brutality to work and where the Brutality can be unlocked in the Krypt. The numbers in the location correspond to the coordinates users need to go to unlock that particular Mortal Kombat X Brutality. Note that some of these require special equipment also available in the Krypt.

LG G4 Deals & Release Dates Emerge

Fri, 05/22/2015 - 21:18

LG G4 Deals & Release Dates Emerge is a post by Cory Gunther from Gotta Be Mobile.

The new LG G4 is one of the best smartphones announced in 2015, and set to finally hit carrier shelves the first week of June in the United States. With the phone coming soon, multiple impressive LG G4 deals and discounts are starting to surface as the release date nears. At the same time, we may have just learned the release date for three of the five major carriers in the US.

Late last month LG took the stage in New York City and announced the all-new redesigned LG G4 after months of rumors, speculation, and small teasers. It went on sale in Korea the very next day, and will eventually launch in the U.S. from Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint and US Cellular.

Read: LG G4 Review

Earlier this morning Sprint confirmed the LG G4 will be released on June 5th, and along with it some free accessories will be included for the initial batch of buyers, but now we’ve learned this deal will be available for all LG G4 buyers in the United States, along with another LG G4 deal from Best Buy.

The entire LG G4 release has been a mystery with no one having any details, or any leaks confirming when it would arrive. Then, last week T-Mobile accidentally tweeted they’d release their version of the phone on June 2nd, but that post on Twitter was quickly deleted. That was followed by Sprint’s confirmation this morning, and now Best Buy has joined in on the fun.

LG’s new smartphone sports an impressive 5.5-inch Quad-HD display, a powerful 6-core processor with 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, a micro-SD slot, a large 3,000 mAh battery, and is highlighted by a new 16 megapixel camera on the rear and six genuine leather colors around back. The leather look is one of the best aspects of the new phone, but the deals below will give prospective buyers even more reason to get LG’s G4.

Those looking to buy the new LG G4 smartphone will be able to get it from all major carriers in the United States, and according to a new promotional page by LG, all buyers will get some free goods with their purchase.

Read: 30+ LG G4 Tips & Tricks

This particular LG G4 deal will give all who buy the phone between May 22nd and June 21st double the storage and double the battery life, as well as an additional charger. To be specific LG is giving out a free 32GB micro-SD card to double the storage, a second 3,000 mAh battery and a charger to power up the spare battery. Letting users swap out the micro-SD card for more storage, or replace an empty battery on the go.

It appears that LG will be letting buyers send in a copy of the receipt, and the IMEI number confirming they’ve purchased the phone, and will ship out the free accessories within 4-6 weeks of purchase. This is one of the best release date deals we’ve seen for any smartphone in a long time.

This afternoon we also received some additional details and potentially the release date for some carriers in the United States. Best Buy posted a pre-order page for the G4, and revealed some carrier release dates, but then quickly removed them.

According to Best Buy the LG G4 release date will be June 4th on Verizon, June 5th from Sprint, the 12th on AT&T, with no details for T-Mobile, although earlier reports suggested June 2nd.

That isn’t the only LG G4 deal coming soon either. This morning Best Buy has confirmed they’ll be giving buyers $100 back in the form of a Best Buy gift card, essentially taking $100 off the cost of the phone. Users can then use that $100 for cases, accessories, an additional charger, screen covers and more. Or anything else for that matter.

The LG G4 is expected to be $199 with a new 2-year contract or $599 outright, not to mention be available via payment plans from all major carriers. Getting it through Best Buy will get buyers a $100 gift card on top of the free battery and storage provided by LG. Watch out Galaxy S6, the LG G4 release is coming up quick, offering some good deals on a great phone.

iOS 9 Update for iPhone & iPad: 10 Things We Know So Far

Fri, 05/22/2015 - 19:00

iOS 9 Update for iPhone & iPad: 10 Things We Know So Far is a post by Adam Mills from Gotta Be Mobile.

As we get closer to the start of WWDC 2015, we continue to see iOS 9 release rumors tease iPhone, iPad and iPod touch users around the world. This week has produced a flurry of new details and today we want to take a look at what we know right now about the Apple iOS 9 update for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.

In June of last year, Apple took the stage at its annual WWDC conference in San Francisco and revealed two major software updates. One was OS X Yosemite for Mac. The other was the iOS 8 update for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. The company used its keynote to talk about key features for developers and the for the public.

For several months now, iOS 8 has reigned as the company’s latest and greatest operating system. The OS has seen numerous updates throughout its existence including its most recent upgrade iOS 8.3. iOS 8.3 delivered tons of bug fixes but it also brought new emojis, a new emoji keyboard and new filter options for Messages.

While iOS 8.3 was the talk of the town in April, it has taken a backseat to two other iOS updates including Apple’s unconfirmed iOS 9 release for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. iOS 9 rumors have been around for awhile but they’ve really started to pick up in May as we approach WWDC 2015.

Many of these iOS 9 rumors are extremely credible and today, we want to take a look at everything we know right now about the iOS 9 release.

iOS 9 Launch Date

The iOS 9 launch date is all but confirmed for WWDC 2015. Apple is scheduled to live stream its opening keynote starting at 9:30PST on June 8th and it’s there that the company will probably confirm the name of its next operating system and run down some of its features.

Advertisement (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Apple hasn’t confirmed an iOS 9 announcement for WWDC though in the company’s press release announcing WWDC’s dates, the company said that it would be talking about the future of iOS. Apple’s slated to release another version of iOS 8 though it probably isn’t the future that the company is talking about.

iOS 8.4

iOS 8.4 is currently in its third developer beta, second public beta, and it’s expected to debut alongside the iOS 9 update at WWDC 2015.

The iOS 8.4 release date hasn’t been confirmed but according to Mark Gurman from 9to5Mac, the iOS 8.4 release date is slated for a release in late June. A specific date hasn’t been called out yet and it’s not clear if the company will confirm a specific date, or window, at WWDC.

According to numerous reports, the iOS 8.4 update will be accompanied by a new streaming music service called Apple Music. The new subscription-based product will reportedly be a direct challenger to services like Spotify. It will reportedly be built into the company’s new Music application.

As a reminder, here’s what’s coming with the new Music application:

  • All-New Design. Music app has a beautiful new design that makes exploring your music collection easier and more fun. Personalize playlists by adding your own image and description. Enjoy stunning pictures of your favorite artists in the Artists view. Start playing an album right from the album list. The music you love is never more than a tap away.
  • Recently Added. Albums and playlists you’ve recently added are now at the top of your library, making it effortless to find something new to play. Simply tap play on the artwork to listen.
  • Streamlined iTunes Radio. Discovering music with iTunes Radio is easier than ever. You can now quickly return to your favorite stations in Recently Played. Choose from a selection of hand-curated stations in Featured Stations, or start a new one from your favorite artist or song.
  • New MiniPlayer. With the new MiniPlayer, you can see what’s playing and control playback while browsing your music collection. To open Now Playing, just tap on the MiniPlayer.
  • Improved Now Playing. Now Playing has a stunning new design that showcases your album artwork the way it was meant to be. In addition, you can begin wirelessly streaming your music using AirPlay without leaving Now Playing.
  • Up Next. It’s now simple to find out which songs from your library will play next — just tap the Up Next icon in Now Playing. You can even reorder, add, or skip songs whenever you like.
  • Global Search. You can now search from anywhere in the Music app — just tap the magnifying glass. Search results are conveniently organized to help you quickly find that perfect song. You can even start an iTunes Radio station right from Search.
iOS 9 Beta

iOS 9 rumors point to the release of an iOS 9 beta ahead of the iOS 9 release date later this year. The iOS 9 beta is rumored to be coming to developers first and then to Apple’s new Beta Software Program testers though that, like all of these iOS 9 details, remains unconfirmed.

Apple typically releases its beta software shortly after its keynote address which means that an iOS 9 beta release date could potentially land on June 9th.

iOS 9 Release Date

Unsurprisingly, the iOS 9 release date is rumored for the fall. A specific date hasn’t been called out yet but given the rumors about the beta and the iPhone 6s release, there’s a good chance that it will arrive months after its debut so that Apple and its testing partners can polish it.

Apple historically has confirmed its iOS release date windows on stage during WWDC so there’s a good chance that it will tag the iOS 9 update with a vague release date like “later this year” or “fall.”

iPhone 6s Release

Apple always releases new iOS software alongside new hardware so it hasn’t been surprising to see iPhone 6s release date rumors point to an arrival in the fall as well.

One rumor comes from the hit-or-miss Digitimes who says that Apple will release an iPhone 6s in the second half of the year. That’s a broad assessment but it makes sense given Apple’s release history.

Another rumor comes from the very credible KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo who claims that iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus production will start in mid-to-late August. Kuo believes that Apple will announce the new iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus in August and that they will arrive on store shelves in September.

Earlier this week, the United Daily News in Taipei issued a report that outlines possible plans for an early iPhone 6s release. The publication specifically mentions a chance of the iPhone 6s release date in August. UDN cites industry sources for the information and mentions the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus as the names for two new iPhone models that will arrive in 2015.

Improved Siri

According to Gurman from 9to5Mac, Apple is working on a new look for Siri that mirrors the colorful look found on the Apple Watch. If you’re not familiar with the Siri interface on the Apple Watch, it’s far more colorful and vibrant than the Siri featured on the iPhone or iPad.

Apple Maps

Last year, we heard that Apple was developing transit maps for its Apple Maps application. That feature didn’t arrive with iOS 8 and it now looks like the company will release it with iOS 9.

According to 9to5Mac, Apple plans to officially introduce transit maps and directions in Apple Maps with the release of iOS 9, and will unveil all of the details at Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference next month.

If these details are accurate, Apple Maps transit directions would work similarly to Google Maps where users can get directions to a specific location using public transit. The report also outlines other features like trip planning for transit and a new “Transit” view which will be tied alongside the existing Standard, Hybrid, and Satellite/Flyover options.

iOS 9 for iPad

Last year also played host to rumors about a split-screen function for iPad. Apple did not show the function off on stage because, according to reports, it was still a “work in progress.” Well, it seems Apple’s gotten the feature ready for primetime because credible rumors point to an arrival with iOS 9 later this year.

A new report suggests that Apple has developed a split-screen multitasking mode that will support both half and thirds window views though it will depend entirely on the apps and what they’ll support. According to the rumors, the iPad screen will be able to either display “two different apps side-by-side, or multiple views of the same app.”

The report notes that this multi-tasking feature could still be pulled before its planned unveiling date.

Bug Fixes & Security Enhancements

Early iOS 9 release rumors suggested that the update would be focused on improving the stability of Apple’s iOS software. The company is also said to be developing iOS 9 with older devices in mind.

Gurman’s sources have told him that “Apple has restructured its software engineering process to better support older hardware.” This is great news for owners of devices like the iPad mini and iPhone 4s though it doesn’t confirm a release.

We’ve also seen rumors hint at a number of security enhancements and today, new information has emerged. According to 9to5Mac, Apple is currently undergoing a “major new initiative” called “Rootless.” These new measures will be there to prevent malware from being installed and increase the security of extensions, as well as keep sensitive data on lockdown.

iOS 9 Jailbreak Release

An iOS 9 jailbreak isn’t confirmed and these new details only help to complicate things.

As we’ve noted, these new security enhancements will essentially mean that even administrative-level users won’t be able to access certain protected files on iOS devices. This includes files that jailbreak developers need access to in order to exploit iOS and create a jailbreak.

Jailbreak developers have always found a way around Apple’s security enhancements though iOS 9 could certainly prove to be a big challenge.

How to Get Unlimited Money in The Witcher 3

Fri, 05/22/2015 - 18:35

How to Get Unlimited Money in The Witcher 3 is a post by Josh Smith from Gotta Be Mobile.

It is tough to find Xbox One and PS4 Witcher 3 cheats, but you can still use an exploit to get unlimited money in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.

This Witcher 3 cheat for PS4 and Xbox one is not a code or a crack that you perform, but it is something that will disappear with an upcoming Witcher 3 patch.

If you do this right you can earn up to 6,000 crowns a minute. Repeat this Witcher 3 infinite coin trick to continue earning as much money in the game before an update closes the loophole.

Learn how to use a Xbox One and PS4 Thw witcher 3 cheat to get unlimited money.

Gamers who want to exploit this trick can unplug their console from the Internet and back up a save with all of the earned money to USB just to be safe. You don’t need to be very far into The Witcher 3 to use this exploit for unlimited money, so you should set aside some time this weekend to get a lot of money in The Witcher using this exploit before it is closed.

You may have heard of this Witcher 3 cheat referred to by seashells or pearls, which are what make up the combination that you can use to earn a lot of crowns fast in the game.

You’ll need to go to Novigrad to make this happen. If you are in the very beginning of the game like we are, you can still do this once you reachVelen. From Velen you can take a boat or swim north to Novigrad. Go to Hierach Sqaure and visit the merchant there to start your journey to unlimited money in The Witcher 3.

Here’s how this Witcher 3 cheat or exploit works on PS4 and Xbox One.

  1. Buy as many shells and seashells as you can from the merchant.
  2. Got to the nearby armorer and dismantle them into pearls.
  3. Sell the pearls to the armorer for over 100 coins each if you are new.
  4. If you come close to depleting the Armorer’s supply of gold you can go to the loan shark and sell.
  5. The merchant, armorer and loan shark appear during the day.

In the video above you can see how this Witcher 3 cheat can help you earn over 6,000 crown per minute on the PS4.

Once again, you will need to do this before the next The Witcher 3 patch arrives and it would be wise to backup your save.

OnYouTube some users report that the money is disappearing from their accounts after several hours or a day. Ghosty Chives writes, “Had about 65k and just looked at my inventory and have 150, haven’t spent it on anything and no patches were downloaded…wtf is going on.”

Instead of using The Witcher 3 cheat to get over 100,000 crowns, you may need to stay below 30,000 crowns. Youtube usernavioner states, “If you earn too much in a short time span I think it corrects your crowns as some anti cheat thing. Keep it at 30k should be fine.”

Microsoft Details Xbox One Update, Teases E3 2015

Fri, 05/22/2015 - 12:11

Microsoft Details Xbox One Update, Teases E3 2015 is a post by Travis Pope from Gotta Be Mobile.

Owners of Microsoft’s Xbox One entertainment console aren’t getting as many features as they’re used to in this week’s Xbox One update, but that doesn’t meant that there aren’t some crucial fixes included. Microsoft is even teasing some announcements it has planned at E3 2015.

Microsoft announced the latest Xbox One software update in a post on its Xbox Wire news blog early this morning, just as it was wrapping up a week of news that included a new broadcast television adapter for the Xbox One. This June Xbox One update doesn’t come stuffed with features. In fact, compared to the software updates that Microsoft has released almost every month since think Xbox One arrived back in 2013, it’s rather anemic.

The Xbox One Digital TV Tuner continues to get some attention in this update. Microsoft is expanding its self-made accessory into new countries where it previously wasn’t compatible. Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Ireland, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Sweden and Switzerland are all getting compatibility with this Xbox One update.

The Xbox One Digital TV Tuner allows users to watch broadcast channels directly on their Xbox One without a cable subscription or converter box of some kind. Users can also stream broadcast television to their Xbox SmartGlass app directly from the console. The feature only became available in the United States roughly a month ago when Microsoft partnered with Hauppauge for a branded TV tuner.

In a recent update Microsoft added a Wireless Display add-on to the many apps available to users directly through the Xbox Store. The app allows users to turn whatever display the Xbox One is plugged into as an external monitor if they’re running Windows 8.1, Windows Phone 8.1 or Windows 10. The Wireless Display app doesn’t just work with Microsoft’s own operating systems, but also Google’s Android operating system and any piece of hardware that supports Miracast technology. Microsoft says it’s still working on the app; this new Xbox One update contains another new version with fixes and changes, though Microsoft doesn’t list what those exactly are in its post on the subject.

Advertisement (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

As for why this week’s Xbox One update is so lean, Microsoft says ‘ its working on things we’ll see at the upcoming E3 2015 trade show. “We’ve got some exciting things to share with you there,” Microsoft’s Larry Hyrb says in the post. He provides no other hints besides that, but it’s possible Microsoft might be talking about the software upgrade that’s its confirmed is coming to the Xbox One at some point in the near future.

At a dedicated Windows 10 event Microsoft revealed that the Xbox One would get a software update based on Windows 10. So far, we only know that developers will be able to create apps and games that run on the Xbox One and Windows PCs with a coming software update. We also know that Microsoft plans to unleash a major update to the Xbox One’s Direct X platform, improving game performance in a big way.

Read: More Xbox On Windows 10 Gaming Details Incoming

Microsoft is also adding features to the Xbox companion on Windows 10 with this update. Game Hubs, Game DVR shortcut customization, Friend updates and the foundation for Xbox One game streaming are all things that Microsoft included in the latest Xbox on Windows 10 app update.

Only members of the Xbox One Preview Program are getting this week’s Xbox One update for now. This new update and the two major changes it contains will go out to every single Xbox One owner over Xbox Live sometime during the month of June, if Microsoft stays true to form.

Final Fantasy 15 Release: 5 Things You Need to Know

Thu, 05/21/2015 - 23:19

Final Fantasy 15 Release: 5 Things You Need to Know is a post by Adam Mills from Gotta Be Mobile.

The Final Fantasy 15 release date is still unknown but that hasn’t stopped new details from emerging in the years since its original announcement. With E3 2015 coming up next month and details starting to settle in, we take a look at everything you need to know about the Final Fantasy 15 release right now.

Final Fantasy XV has been in development for a number of years now but we’re finally starting to see Square Enix take some huge steps towards a release. While the Final Fantasy 15 (also known as Final Fantasy XV) is still unknown, we want to take a look at some of these new details ahead of June and the start of the world’s biggest video game show, E3.

In the years since the first Final Fantasy XV announcement, Square Enix has released a number of Final Fantasy games including Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster, a gorgeous remake of the original games. These games are exclusive to the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita.

Despite these releases, interest in the company’s next big installment hasn’t died down and Square Enix has thrown fuel on the fire in recent months with teasers and demos. An official Final Fantasy 15 release date may not be around the corner but things are certainly starting to heat up as we push into summer.

We expect to hear more as we push deeper into May and into June but these are the details that we think all console owners need to know, right now, about the Final Fantasy 15 release.

.gbmslideshow { border-width: 0px; } #gbmslideshow { border-width: 0px; } New Final Fantasy 15 Demo1 / 5

The first thing that prospective Final Fantasy XV buyers need to know is that Square Enix is preparing a new Final Fantasy XV demo for June.

Advertisement (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

According to a tweet, Final Fantasy 15 Episode Duscae 2.0 will be released sometime in early June. A specific release date hasn't appeared just yet so it's not clear when the company plans to issue the updated demo to PlayStation and Xbox users. The demo was originally supposed to arrive in May.

It's not clear what will be coming in the second demo though most believe that it will feature bug fixes and improvements based on the feedback that it gathered from the first issue of the demo. In April, Square Enix acknowledged that it had received tons of feedback about the first demo.

Take a peek at the video below.

Use the LG G4 as a WiFi Hotspot

The LG G4 can act as portable internet connection that can be shared to a laptop or tablet. Letting owners connect to the internet anywhere there is a cell phone signal. This is called a mobile hotspot, WiFi hotspot, tethering and more.

Read: How to Use the LG G4 Mobile Hotspot Feature

Using your G4 as an internet connection just like you sign into WiFi at home, Starbucks, or at a hotel is very simple. Head into settings > tethering > and select WiFi Hotspot. You’ll want to create a name and password so it’s easy to recognize yet secure.

Your tablet or laptop can now simply search for a WiFi connection just like you always do, find the LG G4 hotspot with the name just created, enter the password and that’s all there is to it. You’re now using its internet connection on another device. If you don’t have an unlimited data plan be careful, as tethering can quickly eat through an entire one month data plan in less than one day.

Change The Default Text Message App

There are many great Android text app alternatives that can deliver a better texting experience than the carrier or built in LG G4 messaging app or even Google Hangouts.

Download the app you want to use and open it. This may prompt the G4 to let you set it as default. If not you need to go to the Settings.

Go to Settings > Device > Default message app > Tap on the app you want to use.

That’s all you need to do to change the default message app on the LG G4.

Turn Off the LG G4 Notification LED

On the front of the LG G4 there is an RGB LED notification light that will pulse or blink when you miss a call, have a text message waiting to be read, incoming emails and more. This is nice and third party apps will let you make each notification type a different color for absolute control, but many just want to disable it.

If you don’t want this bright blinking LED bothering you all the time, or at night, disable it completely. Go into Settings > Sound & notifications > and turn it off as pictured above. Alternatively you can set it to only blink with something important, like a missed call. Just tap the setting and you’ll be able to select what apps use the notification LED.

Run Two Apps at Once

Something we’ve seen from LG and Samsung in the past is running two apps simultaneously. This is called Dual Window Mode, and works great.

On the bottom of the G4 display are three buttons out of the box. A circle for home, a back arrow, and a square which is the “recent apps” or multitasking button. This is what you want to press. Tapping the square shows all your currently open and running apps. Once you tap on the square and see all your recent apps the bottom right is a button that says “Dual Window” and just select this. Or watch the video below.

Once selected you’ll see a window pop-up with arrows pointing up or down, instructing you to long press and drag the icon of the app of choice to the top or bottom of the screen. Slide Gmail to the top and another app of choice to the bottom. Any app can go on top or bottom, so this all varies based on the users needs. Go ahead and slide one app to the top and another app to the bottom and you’re all done. Now both apps are running at the same time. Pretty neat right?

Camera Quick Launch

In this video, LG shows off the G4 “Quick Camera” setting. This useful feature allows the G4 to go from being locked to taking a photo in less than one second. With a quick double tap of the volume down button the phone turns on and launches the camera in 0.07 seconds, then takes a photo. It works amazingly well and will ensure users never miss a quick photo opportunity.

After the 16-megapixel camera launches in less than a second, the laser auto focus allows it to get focused on any object or person extraordinarily quickly. The f1.8 aperture lens delivers excellent photos even indoors or without good lighting conditions. Below are camera comparison photos and some sample images taken from the Galaxy S6 and the LG G4, for those considering the two.

Hide Info On Lockscreen

When you get a message, email, or notification Android shows a small preview on the lockscreen if you have a lockscreen security measure enabled. While this is nice, some users may not want sensitive information to be shown. While settings up a PIN, pattern, or Knockcode you’ll be prompted to choose what type of information it shows. I’ve disabled some, but not all.

As you can see above once I enabled a PIN for security it let me choose what is shown on the lockscreen. Choose whatever works best for you.

Smart Lock

With Android 5.1 Google added a new feature called Smart Lock, which basically only enables lockscreen security like your KnockCODE or PIN to be used when you actually need it. There’s no need for a PIN code or lockscreen security if you’re home, in your car, or somewhere you trust.

Smart Lock disables the lockscreen security if the LG G4 notices the user is home based on location, connected to a Bluetooth device like a smartwatch, speaker, or even a car stereo.

This is extremely useful as you won’t have to put in that pincode or password to use the LG G4 at home, but once you leave a trusted area the security is enabled, giving owners peace of mind. Head into settings > Lock screen > Smart lock > and set up trusted places or devices as you see fit. You’ll thank us later.

Power Saving Mode

A feature becoming more common is power savings mode. This is where the phone recognizes the battery is under a certain percentage and will disable certain features to prolong battery life for when you truly need it.

Once the phone hit 15% the screen will dim, background data will turn off so you can’t get online, receive emails, or other battery intensive tasks. This aims to save that last 15% for texts or phone calls in case of emergencies, or to just get a few more hours out of the last bit of battery left. This is very helpful, and something you’ll want to turn on in settings.

Find a Lost LG G4

If your LG G4 is lost at home or a friends house the Android Device Manager will let you crank the volume to 100% and ring at full blast to help you find it, or wipe out all the data and lock the screen if you fear it has been lost or stolen. These are essential to protect your information, so lets get started.

To activate your new G4 head to the Google Play Store and download the official Android Device Manager application. Not only will this application explain how the ADM works, let you setup the device you’ve just installed it on, but you can also manage and access other devices right from this app on a mobile device. Meaning you can use your smartphone or a tablet to track, find, lock, or wipe your smartphone all with the Android Device Manager. It’s quite powerful.

Users can also get started and all set up by going to www.google.com/android/devicemanager on your computer. This will instantly launch the ADM service which will let you scroll through your list of devices. Here is where you can name your LG G4, find its location, or wipe all data as mentioned above. Scroll through the list if you have more than one device, and let the ADM do all the work.

Using the ADM on another device, or from a PC you’ll navigate to the Android Device Manager page and track your phone. In my case above I’m looking for the Google Play Edition Galaxy S4, but you’ll be looking for the LG G4 (or any Android device for that matter) so simply find it from the dropdown. The Android Device Manager uses GPS to track the location, often times down to a few feet, and you’re all set.

From here the GPS locate button will track the lost or stolen device for you. Google warns users to never try and retrieve a lost device themselves, and to contact the police. We’d have to agree. Bringing an officer of the law with you to try and retrieve a stolen smartphone would be a good move.

A new addition to this recently released by Google is the option to simply type “Find My Phone” into Google Chrome on a tablet or computer, and it will make you sign into your Gmail and then track any device you’d like. This can be the LG G4, or any Android smartphone or tablet for that matter. This should work even if you never setup the Android Device Manager on your LG G4.

Quick Charging

Last but not least is something called Quick Charging. We can’t show you this like we did the other 25+ tips and tricks in the video above, so instead we’ll just explain it.

Thanks to some new technology the G4 battery charges much faster than older devices. It turbo charges from 0-50% at a very fast rate, then slowly throttles down to regular speeds to preserve the life of the battery. This is called Quick Charge 2.0, a selling point of most phones released in the past six months. When the phone is under 15% it will charge extremely quick, usually giving users 6-8 hours of use after just 20-30 minutes on the charger.

There are so many fancy features, options and customization on this phone that users will truly need to use it for a while to fully enjoy all it has to offer. Stay tuned for plenty of additional coverage, information, how to guides and more on the LG G4.

Witcher 3 Release Details & Impressions

Thu, 05/21/2015 - 18:58

Witcher 3 Release Details & Impressions is a post by Adam Mills from Gotta Be Mobile.

The Witcher 3 release for PS4, Xbox One and PC has come and gone but we’re still seeing a a steady stream of new release details emerge. Today, we take another look at the Witcher 3 release and offer some initial impressions of the game that’s been years in the making.

After three years of development, teasers and announcements, the Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is finally available for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. The open world adventure game has garnered numerous accolades and solid reviews from critics and its become one of the top games available for next-generation consoles and machines running Microsoft’s Windows platform.

As we push away from The Witcher 3 release date, we continue to see new details emerge for owners and those who are thinking about picking the game up in the near future.

You can learn more about The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt to prepare for the game, but today we want to delve into some of the most important post-release details that owners and buyers should know.

Witcher 3 PC Update Released

Its only been two days since The Witcher 3 release and the developer behind the game, CD Projekt Red, has already released its second major update for the game. The game’s first major update was a day one patch released when the title first came out.

Advertisement (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The Witcher 3 for PC has been updated with a significant patch that is meant to stabilize and improve the experience of the game. The studio confirmed the update today and released a change log that outlines all of the changes that come with the PC versions second update:

  • Improves stability in gameplay and the UI
  • Improves performance especially in cutscenes and gameplay
  • Fixes grass and foliage popping that could occur after density parameters were changed
  • Improves Nvidia Hairworks performance
  • Boosted texture anisotropy sampling to 16x on Ultra preset
  • Sharpen Post-process settings extended from Off/On to Off/Low/High
  • Blood particles will now properly appear after killing enemies on the water
  • Corrects a bug where player was able to shoot bolts at friendly NPCs
  • Improves menu handling
  • Corrects an issue with Stamina regeneration while sprinting
  • Fixes a cursor lock issue that sometimes occurred when scrolling the map
  • Generally improves world map focus
  • Improves input responsiveness when using keyboard
  • Corrects some missing translations in the UI
  • Corrects an issue in dialogue selections
  • Rostan Muggs is back
  • Minor SFX improvements

This might be the second major patch for the PC version of The Witcher 3 but it certainly won’t be the last.

More Updates to Come

While the game has received high marks for its gameplay, some owners aren’t satisfied. In response to concerns about “downgraded” graphics, the studio recently told Eurogamer that there is some truth to this.

CD Projekt Red co-founder Marcin Iwinski admits that the graphics that arrived with the game do not match the graphics that the company showed off at VGX nearly two years ago. He says that the “downgrade” as some perceive it is a product of the “nature of games development.” Specifically, the company says that it changed its rendering system after the event but that it doesn’t agree that there is a “downgrade.”

Today’s patch does include some graphical enhancements but their work isn’t done. The company says that this is a marathon and not a sprint and it’s going to continue to refine the game in an attempt to address some of these concerns:

It’s very important to stress: we are continuously working on the PC version, and we will be adding a lot of stuff, and there is more to come. We’ve proven it in the past that we support our games and we will be looking at the feedback and trying to make it better.

It’s not clear when the game’s next patch will arrive. Until then, PC users will have to make do with the changes found in today’s update.

Witcher 3 PS4 & Xbox Update Coming Soon

While the patch is available for the PC, it’s not available for the Xbox One or PS4. Yet. The developer says that a patch will be released in the near future for the Xbox One and PS4 though its change log still isn’t clear. Owners of the console versions of the game can expect many of the bug fixes and enhancements that come with the PC update.

Witcher 3 Deals

There are no longer 10% off The Witcher 3 deals on PSN, Xbox Live and Steam, but you can still save some money on one of the year’s best games.

Best Buy’s Gamers Club Unlocked is a $30 membership that delivers 20% off all new games. Those who have membership can knock a few dollars off the price. Those who aren’t members will have to pay full price, at least for now.

Ubisoft is also offering a deal on The Witcher 3. Those that buy through uPlay will get a free game with their purchase. Buyers can choose from Assassin’s Creed Black Flag, Assassin’s Creed Rogue, Watch Dogs, or Far Cry 3.

Witcher 3 Impressions: Is It Worth $60?

We’ve been playing The Witcher 3 for a few days now and while we haven’t completed the game just yet (it’s massive), we want to offer our initial impressions of the game and tell you if it’s worth spending $60 on it.

If you haven’t played The Witcher 1 or Witcher 2, don’t let that discourage you. While there is certainly a ton of backstory to the series, the game gets you caught up to speed pretty quickly through character bios and in-game dialogue. You can, if you wish, read all about the game’s lore prior to playing.

Without giving too much away, the story is set in a medieval times and you star as Geralt of Rivia, a Witcher. If you’re not familiar, a Witcher is a mutated mercenary of sorts that performs contracts for cold hard cash. It’s a fantastic blend of fantasy and realism though it’s not for the squeamish.

The land is marred by war, famine and destruction and you’re caught in between rival humans and a supernatural force called The Wild Hunt. Almost immediately you’re thrown into the chaos as you ride into a small town whose residents are angry, tired and in some cases hopeless. The bodies of traitors and deserters hang from trees. The remnants of fallen heroes are strewn about the countryside. And evil lurks in the mists of the swamps and forests.

After the game sets you up, you’re thrown into this world and rather quickly you’re swept up into the chaos and forced to make decisions that impact your character’s life and the lives of the citizens around you. Some of these decisions will have a big impact on how the story unfolds.

If you’re looking for an easy hack-and-slash style RPG, this game probably isn’t for you. The game is set in the third-person and the combat is hard and often times, unforgiving. We’ve died countless times already and we expect to die more as the enemies grow in strength and number.

That said, we keep coming back for more. Because of the story, because of the beautifully constructed world, and because of the quests. The developer has filled the world with interesting characters but also interesting things to do and accomplish. The game even managed to make finding a frying pan for an old woman fun and satisfying.

We’ve already played the game for 10 hours and we’ve only opened up a fraction of the map. With some games, that might seem overwhelming. With The Witcher 3, we couldn’t be happier. This is a fun world to spend time in. To discover, to kill, to quest. And it already feels like money well spent. It helps that CD Projekt Red is planning to improve the game with bug fixes and DLC content.

This is easily one of the best games for next-generation consoles and it’s a must-own for anyone that enjoys immersive RPGs, great stories, and a challenge.

Early iPhone 6s Release Date Rumors: 5 Things to Know

Thu, 05/21/2015 - 18:57

Early iPhone 6s Release Date Rumors: 5 Things to Know is a post by Josh Smith from Gotta Be Mobile.

When is the iPhone 6s release date? With a possible release for the new iPhone three to four months away, we are hearing an increasing drumbeat of early iPhone 6s release date rumors.

We saw early because the two latest rumors suggest Apple will deliver the new iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus in August.

That is a month before a traditional iPhone release date, and thus it is early even without an official iPhone 6s release date announcement.

Consumers who are looking to buy a new iPhone in 2015 should pay attention to iPhone 6s release date rumors because it is not very far off, it means new features and options and a cheaper iPhone 6 for users

Here is a look at what you need to know about an early iPhone 6s release date including rumors, what to expect and what you can count on.

.gbmslideshow { border-width: 0px; } #gbmslideshow { border-width: 0px; } Early iPhone 6s Release Date Rumors: 5 Things to KnowiPhone 6s Release Date in August1 / 5

At this point two sources claim Apple is working towards an August iPhone 6s release date. The first rumor emerged from China and a second comes from Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI analysts.

In the first rumor, we hear that Apple could push up the iPhone 6s release date because of a good supply of iPhone 6s parts. The rumor is from United Daily News in Taiwan but there is no specific industry source linked to this rumor.

The latest rumor shared on The China Post claims Apple will announce the new iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus in August and arrive on store shelves in September. This report comes from Kuo, who is well-known for delivering well sourced and correct information about iPhone features ahead of the release. Kuo is not as accurate when it comes to the release timing, possibly due to variances in supply chain knowledge compared to Apple's retail planning.

Battlefield Hardline’s Criminal Activity Add-on Revealed

Thu, 05/21/2015 - 13:04

Battlefield Hardline’s Criminal Activity Add-on Revealed is a post by Travis Pope from Gotta Be Mobile.

Developer Visceral Games have revealed a new Criminal Activity update for Battlefield Hardline that could have anyone and everyone who purchased the gaming comic back for more criminal and law enforcement antics.

Visceral Games and Electronic Arts announced the Battlefield Hardline Criminal Activity add-on this week in a post on the Battlelog Blog for the game franchise. Criminal Activity will be the first major update for Battlefield Hardline, which launched on March 17th for the PS3, PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and Windows PCs.

The Battlefield Hardline Criminal Activity update adds a total of four completely new mapped all designed for different types of play. These are Backwoods, Code Blue, The Beat and Black Friday. Where the levels are set and how they compare to other maps already available in Battlefield Hardline isn’t exactly clear since Electronic Arts and Visceral Games aren’t yet sharing pictures or videos of the different maps. Criminal Activity adds two new rides, three new weapons, bolsters the line-up of ammunition available for specific weapons and packs a new gadget that the blog post doesn’t detail. Six new maps will be included in the update, two of them designed to make the wearer look like a member of the animal kingdom and four new helmet pieces for police officers in the game.

We do know that a nail gun is something that users will be able to use as a weapon after Criminal Activity comes to Battlefield Hardline. We also know that a new Bounty Hunter game mode is included in this update as well. Visceral is teasing what appears to be a story-related add-on about a huge jump in the number of property claims and damages the in-game world is now plagued by.

EA Access is a subscription service that lets users download for a large catalog of previously released titles for as little as $29.99 a year. When users download a game through EA Access they get everything, included its downloadable content. Besides digital downloads, users get access to major titles from EA before they arrive for everyone else. Electronic Arts has used it to push digital downloads of its games for nearly a year now, but it looks like it’s preparing to add downloadable content to the fray too.

Today’s Battlefield Hardline Criminal Activity post indicates that we can expect the add-on to arrive in the PlayStation Store, Xbox Store and Origin PC Store this coming summer, but arrive for EA Access subscribers in June. This hints at an early DLC releases for EA Access subscribers as well as early game access. It’s also possible that Battlefield Hardline could be one of the games added to the subscription service in the near future.

Read: Xbox One Gets Battlefield Hardline Early with EA Access

Battlefield Hardline is a shooter that does things differently. Forget hero tales and war stores, Battlefield Hardline doesn’t focus on a war abroad or a story about world domination. There are no aliens and no clear right and wrong. Gamers play as either cops or criminals and which side of the law their own dictates how the game plays for them online. There are robbery jobs to complete or prevent and expensive vehicles to steal. Visceral mixing things up with weapons drops and add-ons. The game does have a single player, but it focuses on what Visceral describes as the War on Crime. Players flash their badges, earning more experience if they can successfully detain a suspect without violence, for example.

Digital copies of Battlefield Hardline are still $60. Physical copies of the game from GameStop are $60 too. At this point it’s unclear how much Electronic Arts plans to charge for the Battlefield Hardline Criminal Activity add-on.

Nexus 9 Android 5.1.1 Lollipop Update Review

Wed, 05/20/2015 - 23:29

Nexus 9 Android 5.1.1 Lollipop Update Review is a post by Cory Gunther from Gotta Be Mobile.

The Nexus 9 Android 5.1.1 Lollipop update finally arrived earlier this month after nearly 6 months without a single update, and it delivered a collection of fixes for the tablet that may solve a memory leak that troubled some devices with slow performance, not to mention improve battery life and add new features.

Google’s Android 5.1.1 Lollipop update is currently rolling out to the Nexus 4, Nexus 5, Nexus 7, Nexus 9, and eventually will hit the Nexus 6 smartphone. After spending nearly two weeks with Android 5.1.1 Lollipop on the Nexus 9, here’s our initial thoughts. For details on how to install it yourself, see the link below.

Read: How to Install Android 5.1.1 Lollipop on the Nexus 9

With this update comes a number of fixes for Android 5.1 problems, as well as fixes for the original 5.0 release. Many users have complained about battery life issues, app crashes, and random reboots. By now most users should have received the over the air update, and those debating whether or not to install it, our thoughts below should help owners decide.

Since being released back in November the Nexus 9 has only received one update to Android 5.0.1 Lollipop. That’s it. Since then we’ve seen Android 5.0.2, Android 5.1, and then Android 5.1.1 Lollipop all arrive for almost all Nexus smartphones and tablets. All while the Nexus 9 was stuck on 5.0.1 for months.

The initial Android 5.0 Lollipop update was riddled with little bugs and issues that were plaguing all users, and that includes those with the Nexus 9. Apps were crashing, performance wasn’t that great, gaming was oddly terrible on the Nexus 9, and it was just an overall sluggish device. Things that were unexpected for Google’s new flagship iPad-like premium 8.9-inch Nexus tablet.

Read: Android 5.1 vs Android 5.0 Lollipop: What’s New

I’ve spent nearly two weeks using the Nexus 9 on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop, and below are a few important things owners need to know before continuing with the update, or buying a Nexus 9.

Nexus 9 Android 5.1.1 Installation

Google actually announced the Nexus 9 Android 5.1.1 Lollipop update on May 7th, but it didn’t arrive for anyone. At least no reports of it surfaced. Then on Monday the 11th after a few days of waiting the over the air update finally surfaced, and the factory images were posted to Google’s servers, allowing users to download and install it right away instead of waiting. It’s currently still rolling out now for all users.

The update is fairly large in size, as it will be taking users with a Nexus 9 from Android 5.0.1 (or 5.0.2) to the latest Android 5.1.1 Lollipop release. It has a lot of new features, tweaks, and software improvements to make the experience better.

Users can head into settings > about tablet > and check for updates now to try and manually get the update, otherwise it should arrive over the air and in your notification bar in the next few days. You can always try the manual way to update, using our link at the top of the page.

For us, we received the over the air update, and it was a smooth upgrade experience. It took a few minutes to download, then a couple more to reboot and install on the Nexus 9. Within about 10 minutes I was back up and running with a completely improved device. One that’s faster, smooth, and seems a bit more stable. But more on that below.

Nexus 9 Android 5.1.1 Review

Shortly after installing the Nexus 9 Android 5.1.1 update, we shared an early look at the performance and any issues. In the two weeks since this update arrived I’ve used the Nexus 9 more as part of my daily routine to see if there are any improvements and to look for problems or bugs with Android 5.1.1.

It is important to keep in mind that our experiences may vary due to the apps installed on the Nexus 9 and the way that different owners use the device, or update it. You can use this Android 5.1.1 review to decide if the Nexus 9 Lollipop update is worth installing on your tablet.

Nexus 9 Android 5.1.1 Performance

Honestly, it could be better, but so far we are enjoying a much better experience than what was offered since being released in November. The Nexus 9 is now faster, smooth, more stable, and appears to have better battery life, but not by much. The Nexus 9 is an extremely powerful tablet but the initial Lollipop release wasn’t nearly as smooth as many expected, but now that Google’s refined everything with Android 5.1.1, this device flies. Everything is buttery smooth, fast, fluid, and appears to be running like a well oiled machine.

I’m actually pleasantly surprised by the noticeable increase in performance and general smooth operations. The Nexus 9 still seems to have a little stutter here and there while gaming, which could just be the display, but it is actually noticeably better overall. The update should not only improve the speed and performance, but there should be fewer bugs, and no more app crashes.

Lately a lot of Android 5.x updates have caused issues for many owners, with bugs plaguing almost each release. Most notably the Nexus 5 and Nexus 7. Our Nexus 9 being updated over the air from 5.0.2 to Android 5.1.1 Lollipop was easy. I’ve yet to see any apps crash, or any major problems that would have me not recommend users upgrade.

Apps

As far as apps go I’ve yet to experience any problems since updating to Android 5.1.1 Lollipop. We’re not sure in the famed “memory leak” problem has been solved, but we aren’t seeing any complaints either. So maybe Google fixed this and didn’t mention it. The Nexus 7 had the most problems, so most Nexus 9 owner may not be as vocal about issues, nor has the tablet been as popular in terms of sales.

So far I’ve played games like Clash of Clans, World of Tanks, and Zynga Power, as well as ran Facebook, Instagram, Robird for Twitter, browsed the web, and used nearly every social network, all without fail. I watch TV by streaming Sling TV most evenings, and that entire experience has been great. No problems, lags, or crashes. In the two weeks of usage I haven’t had any crashes, and I’m not experiencing any random reboots either.

As far as we can tell all the major issues with the memory leak, as well as general stability has all been improved or fixed here. I’ve had no complaints in two weeks, but then I only use it an hour or so at a time.

WiFi & Bluetooth

Connectivity is a major area of concern after any update, especially a large one like this. And while the Nexus 9 didn’t have too many issues, we’re not experiencing any either, so that’s a plus. I’ve used my Nexus 9 around the house, a doctors office, in a Hotel in California and connected to the JAMBOX speaker via Bluetooth all with no problems. WiFi, Bluetooth seem perfectly capable, and stable. Update without worry.

Shown above is one of the many new features of Android 5.1 Lollipop, which is the improved notification pulldown bar. To take things further, Google’s improved the quick settings. Right inside the pulldown bar you can tap the small arrows and switch, search, and connect to Wi-Fi in seconds, rather than fumbling through the settings menu. The same works for Bluetooth for easy pairing. They’ve even added little animations to the icons, tap the signal bars icon for a quick glance at data usage, and more. It’s a nice touch, and is working great here on this Nexus 9.

Nexus 9 Android 5.1.1 Battery Life

The Nexus 9 doesn’t have the best battery life of any tablet I’ve used, but it isn’t bad either. Android 5.0 Lollipop should offer good battery life, and things appear noticeably better on 5.1.1 for me. The changes made should make the dual-core 64-bit Denver processor run more efficient, use less power when not needed, and handle tasks in a slightly different fashion. Overnight the battery drain was somewhat low, and this morning my Nexus 9 appeared to handle all my games and Sling TV streaming better than weeks prior. Overnight I lose about 9%, and wake up with 91% when it is fully charged before bed. Sometimes a little less if I get a lot of emails. Although one night something kept the Nexus 9 awake, and I had 78% battery life remaining.

So far battery life seems improved, but not by much. That said, we’ll take whatever we can get. Google put in tons of effort with Android 5.0 (and 5.1, and 5.1.1) to improve battery life, and we have no general complaints in this area.

Speed

With Android 5.1.1 built for any device, including Android One budget phones for emerging markets, there’s no reason the Nexus 9 and its powerful 64-bit NVIDIA processor can’t run it smoothly. This is why some of the performance issues were surprising when it first launched, but they’ve all been fixed in Android 5.1.1 Lollipop.

The tablet doesn’t just feel faster, it is faster. Apps open quickly, flipping through homescreens is fluid and smooth, and it is a top end experience people expect when they buy an expensive $399 tablet. Everything still runs smoothly including the starting and switching apps. So far overall speed, performance and reliability is great since updating. I’ve notice a big increase in gaming performance and multi-tasking, two things the Nexus 9 seemed to struggle with before.

Bugs & Issues

Even though Android 5.1.1 is a bug fixing update, there is a chance that there can be other issues and bugs hidden inside the update. At this point I have not observed any new Android 5.1.1 bugs or problems on the Nexus 9. Usually these surface after a week or two, but I’ve yet to find any. This is a good sign, and we feel confident in saying users should update their tablets.

You can check out the Google Nexus Help forum for more information and to see if other users report problems with Android 5.1.1 Lollipop.

Should You Update to Android 5.1?

The Android 5.0 Lollipop release caused a lot of problems for devices that received updates to it, and the Nexus 9 launched with some of those on board, then was the last to get an update. Sure, there will still be bugs here and there, and some may have issues after updating, but we recommend a full wipe and completely fresh install for the best results.

If you are still on Android 5.0.1 on your Nexus 9 and didn’t get 5.0.2, expect a few updates to be arriving soon. Android 5.0.2 didn’t fix anything, but this new Android 5.1.1 release is set to deliver you the best Nexus 9 experience possible.

At this point we see no reason to warn users against accepting the Android 5.1.1 Lollipop update notification once it arrives, and if you’d rather not wait, the steps at the top of the page can get you this latest software release right now. So yes, we’d recommend users download and install the Nexus 9 Android 5.1.1 Lollipop software update. Hopefully the Nexus 9 is one of the first to receive Android M later this year.

Forza 6 Release: 5 Things to Know

Wed, 05/20/2015 - 22:35

Forza 6 Release: 5 Things to Know is a post by Adam Mills from Gotta Be Mobile.

The Forza 6 release date is confirmed for 2015 and with E3 2015 just weeks away, excitement for the game’s arrival is starting to build. With that in mind, we want to run down the most important things prospective Forza 6 buyers need to know about the Forza 6 release.

We’re still several months away from the Forza 6 release but we want to share five things buyers need to know about its upcoming release. To us, these are the five most important details that every prospective buyer needs to know right now ahead of E3 2015 and ahead of its eventual release.

The Forza 6 release has been a long time coming. Its been nearly two years since the release of Forza 5, a launch title for the Xbox One. And while last year’s free-roaming Forza Horizon 2 has held fans of the series over, there was a natural sense of excitement when the company announced the arrival of its next installment.

In January, Take 10 and Microsoft unveiled Forza 6 during the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. While the companies confirmed a Forza 6 release, they purposefully held back many of the important details, saving those for another time and place.

With E3 2015 just weeks away, we want to bring fans of the series and casual gamers up to speed with everything there is to know about the Forza 6 release at this point. We’re expecting a flurry of new details in the near future but for now, this is what we know about Microsoft’s plans for the next big Forza release.

In January, Microsoft and Co. failed to confirm a specific Forza 6 release date but they did confirm a specific release window for the highly anticipated successor for Forza 5.

While we don't have an exact date to share just yet, Forza 6 is confirmed for sometime during the holidays this year. It'll emerge sometime in Q4 and Q4 spans from October to December. 

When it comes to Q4 releases, we typically see big games arrive before December. Forza 5, for instance, arrived in November. Developers also like to announce concrete release dates months in advance so we'll almost certainly hear about a concrete Forza 6 release date ahead of time. Probably next month at E3 2015.
