TWRP-ThumbTWRP has officially come to two more devices, and they’re quite an odd pair. One is the Oppo R5. This is a phone so thin that it lacks a headphone jack.

The second is the Nexus Player. Yup, official TWRP support for your set-top box. But experience won’t exactly be the smooth one you’re expecting. The maintainer says you will need a USB OTG cable and a USB mouse to navigate TWRP on the device, and even then, the graphics will be a bit laggy due to a lack of optimization for x86.

How do Androids sleep? Why do Androids sleep? I wouldn’t know. I do know, however, that if you want to sleep like them, you can get the help of an app that rises (or lays down) to the task. Sleep as Android helps you fall asleep with lullabies, tracks your sleep cycles, and wakes you up at an optimal time with nature sounds. And it just got a little bit better in this latest update.

If you had eagerly waited for Project Fi’s announcement and requested an invite as soon as they were public, you’ve likely been sitting over the past weeks tapping your foot impatiently and anticipating that acceptance email to hit your inbox so you can free yourself from the shackles of your operator.

The wait might be longer than expected though. An email is being sent to those who requested invites letting them know that due to the service’s high-demand, invites might take until mid-summer to go out to everyone, but that there’ll soon be an online tracker for checking the status of your request.

The Inbox By Gmail Team Is Working On Signatures And Labels, But Don’t Hold Your Breath For Mark As Unread

Inbox-Thumb

As he is wont to do, Artem likes to grumble on Google+ about various apps, services, devices, and things that don’t work as perfectly as he expects them to. His latest bout of complaints hit Inbox, Google’s recent effort to modernize and simplify email management, and addressed the lack of Mark as unread, labels, signatures, and an easy way to trash items. If you’ve ever received an email from the man, you’d know he loves his “Sincerely, Artem” signature, which might come after a friendly request, a question, a thanks, or a command to fix something in an article as fast as (and preferably faster than) your fingers can type and click.
