CloudAmpz Will Stream Your Favorite Music from the Cloud

Cloud storage is already quite popular. And with each passing year, the number of users continues to grow. Not too long ago, we talked about Rainbow, an application that lets you manage files on multiple cloud storage providers such as Dropbox, Box, and so on. Naturally, many choose to store their music libraries in the cloud, enabling all of their devices to have access to one remote music store.

Some Android cloud storage apps, such as the official Dropbox client, require you to download a file first in order to listen to it. However, XDA Forum Member fusego created an app that allows you to stream your music directly from Dropbox, Box, or Google Drive. You can also add music stored on your SD card.

CloudAmpz allows you to play many of the most commonly used formats like MP3, FLAC, and OGG. It automatically downloads album art from MusicBrainz, and even allows you to cast music to your Chromecast. And when casting, you can even display song lyrics thanks to the application’s ChartLyrics integration.

If you’re not afraid of using up some bandwidth and want to give a great cloud-based solution a try, you can get started over at the application thread.

NVIDIA Launches SHIELD Android TV at Google I/O

Since Android TV was announced at Google I/O 2014, there has been very little activity in the way of hardware releases for the platform. Consumers had a very small selection to choose from in the form of the Nexus Player and Razer Forge TV, or they could buy a new Sony or Phillips television with Android TV on-board. These options, however, seemed a bit tepid at best; the Nexus Player was extremely limited in nature, offering very little storage, weak...

Devs Beware – Automatic Backup Privacy Risks

One new feature of "Android M" (speculation on potential names welcomed on the back of a postcard) which gained little attention at Google I/O so far was the introduction of a new, automatic backup feature for application data. Obviously, it's still early days yet, though you can download the developer preview (if you're brave!), so we can't be sure of the final implementation, but there are a few gotchas here that developers should be aware of. Automation The first is...
