Google announced today that it will be bringing ads to the Play Store, and while that will surely annoy the majority of us, it isn't the only thing that sucks about the Play Store. From the lack of clear communication with developers to ridiculous restrictions, there are a handful of very annoying things about Google's approach.

Keep Your (And Others’) Tasks in Check with TimeAct
Some people are blessed with the ability to commit a lengthy collection of tasks to memory, without forgetting to take care of one (usually the most important in my case). The rest of us aren’t so lucky, and generally need to rely on a list. There are numerous task management solutions available for Android, ranging from quick and simple plain text lists to feature filled apps that will help you keep your entire life in check. If you’re looking for something that places itself in the middle of those two extremes, TimeAct might well be worth a look.
Created by XDA Forum Member eyeballgames, TimeAct will not only allow you to create lists and perform all the usual functions you would expect from such an application, but it also offers the ability to synchronize them across multiple devices and even with other people for group tasks. This means that you can create projects and assign tasks to others on the fly, and the entire group’s task list will be updated after syncing. There are also a couple of different widgets to let you see the status of a task directly from your home screen.
The application itself is a continuation of a web-based task management system of the same name. If you’d like to find out more then check out the forum thread.

The direction of smartwatches is unclear to even the biggest OEMs, and with every new option there seems to be polarizing dissonances from what people and OEMs want and what they both think they want. We've documented many of the reasons as to...
Every day, the majority of us use the internet through several different internet service providers, but what we may not think about whilst using this service is how much control these companies have over our experience. AT&T recently launched their rival to the Google Fiber service and subsequently looked for a way to further monetize on their offering. For an extra $29 on top of the $70 monthly charge, you can buy your privacy back from them. Otherwise expect online adverts...
