DISAPPEARED: What happened to Zattoo on Google Play?
Posted by Arne Hess - at 12:43 CET under 04 - Android News

I'm sure, many European users know Zattoo, an - if not the biggest - European linear TV IPTV service, broadcasting in seven European countries. In addition to Germany and Switzerland, where Zattoo started back in 2006, the Switzerland-based company is also offering its service in Spain, France, Denmark, Luxembourg as well as a small channel line-up in the USA and the UK. Each country offers a specific, regional linear TV channel portfolio. As Zattoo says on its own web site, "every user can access Zattoo on all devices on which the service is available". And so far, Zattoo supported Android, iOS, Windows, Windows 8 and Windows RT as well as Windows Phone through the respective app stores.

HTC definitely loves special editions, doesn't matter if they are 24-carat Gold or designed by some of the world's most recognized fashion designers.

For the recent London Fashion Week, HTC and Koma joint forces and the British designer created an exclusive special edition of the HTC One mini. This limited run of 10 handsets features two different unique artworks from the designer, which was created to celebrate HTC's "change" concept.

UTILITY: App Ops allows to Control App Access Rights on Android 4.3 and Android 4.4
Posted by Arne Hess - at 13:40 CET under 04 - Android News

Privacy is a hot topic nowadays and apps privacy even more. There are countless apps in all the app stores which have countless rights to access personal data. From location to personal information like calendar, contacts, etc. entries to to messaging like SMS and more. And while all these access rights often make a lot of sense, too often these rights don't make sense at all. I'm not going to say that all these apps are fraudulent, often enough developers don't pay enough attention to the rights they request, but sometimes it leaves a bad feeling to know that a certain app has read/write rights it doesn't need at all. "Apps Ops" is a new and a clever app which allows Android users to control some of the permissions, an installed or preinstalled app has.
