OPENED: Chromecast now Open to Developers with Google Cast SDK
Posted by Arne Hess - at 20:04 CET under 04 - Android News

It took Google a little bit longer to open its wallet garden but it finally happened. As announced today on the Google Developers Blog, starting today, the Google Cast SDK is available for developing and publishing Google Cast-ready apps. This means that Google Chromecast users can expect soon many more apps which will allow to stream from an Android or iOS device to the big screen living room TV. As Google said, the Google Cast SDK is simple to integrate because there's no need to write a new app; but it allows to just incorporate the SDK into existing mobile and and even web apps to bring the content to the TV. The SDK comes with many options for displaying content on Chromecast.

UTILITY: Pebble Locker for Android keeps Smartphones Protected while not Connected
Posted by Arne Hess - at 13:03 CET under 04 - Android News

While there are a couple of pretty good Bluetooth and WiFi solutions out there, which keeps your Android smartphone protected while not connected to a Bluetooth device or WiFi nearby, these solutions disable the PIN or password entry on the smartphone while connected. That's pretty handy, let's say while you are in the car - connected to your hands-free kit, or at home - connected to your W-LAN. However, a very interesting utility - really useful for Pebble smartwatch users - is Pebble Locker. And since Pebble is shipping its Pebble Steel since this week to many new Pebble users, I don't want to forget to recommend this app for your convenience. Unlike other solutions, Pebble Locker is free - if you only use it with your Pebble smartwatch but it also offers general Bluetooth and WiFi options through an in-app purchase.

SOLD: Lenovo to acquire Motorola Mobility from Google
Posted by Arne Hess - at 12:47 CET under 04 - Android News

As announced yesterday evening by Google CEO Larry Page himself, Google and Lenovo signed an agreement to sell Motorola for US$ 2.91 billion. As this is an important move for Android users everywhere, Page explained in Google' own blog that Google acquired Motorola back in 2012 to help "supercharge the Android ecosystem by creating a stronger patent portfolio for Google and great smartphones for users". According to Page, Motorola has done a tremendous job reinventing the company over the past 19 months by focusing on building a smaller number of great (and great value) smartphones that consumers love. Both the Moto G and the Moto X are said to "doing really well" and Page is very excited about the smartphone lineup for 2014.

FEEDBACK: Omate explains the Shipping-Delays of its Omate TrueSmart 2.0 Android Smartwach
Posted by Arne Hess - at 13:01 CET under 04 - Android News

Like me, I know a couple European readers pledged the Omate TrueSmart 2.0 smartwatch after I wrote about it first time back in August and after the recent Omate announcement of further shipping delays, I received some feedback from some readers which - well let's say it this way - indicated "a frustration". Many of you have pledged for the 2100 MHz UMTS "Omate TrueSmart DEVELOPERS Edition" which was said to deliver "in October (last year) - before anyone else". However, Omate said in its latest update that it discovered some quality issues with this version (after they've upgraded each backer to the 1GB RAM / 8 GB flash memory version) which causes - also thanks to Chinese New Year - even further shipping delays.

OLYMPICS: Samsung WOW App for Android Connects Millions Worldwide to Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games
Posted by Arne Hess - at 18:19 CET under 04 - Android News

Back in October I wrote about Samsung's upcoming WOW (Wireless Olympic Works) app which the official Olympics sponsor has now launched for Android. The Public WOW app offers personalized experience, athlete cheering feature and tutorials on all 15 sporting events for Sochi 2014. It's said to provide sports fans with real-time access to event schedules, latest reports on results, medal standings and Olympic records reliably and fast. The Public WOW app is - as mentioned in October - an extension of Samsung's custom WOW for the Olympic Family, which is a wireless communications platform developed to ensure smarter communications and smoother wireless operations of the Olympic Winter Games by offering news and information about the Games to officials and staffs.
