Hiding your root status from apps that refuse to work when you are rooted—like Android Pay—is a cat and mouse game that enthusiasts have been losing lately. Chainfire, the developer who has become the main source of advances in rooting, announced today a new way to work around Android apps' ability to detect the root status of a device. The app, called suhide, works but comes with a number of caveats.

fitbit-adventures

Fitbit just unveiled its two upcoming trackers, the Flex 2 and Charge 2, but there's more that the company is adding to its trackers' experience this week: Adventures.

Sitting inside the Challenges tab, there will be a new series of challenges to compete in, except these are personal ones that you can undertake at your own pace and with a lot more to gain than just bragging rights against your friends. Adventures are virtual experiences through known landmarks, with 180-degree views, hidden treasures, and mini challenges that you can follow for several days.

nine-3-calendar

If you're an Outlook user, odds are you've downloaded the Outlook app on your Android phone or you've considered Nine as a capable third-party alternative. We first looked at it more than two years ago and found it to be an attractive if limited app with plenty of interesting features.

Nine has evolved a lot since its release and has now reached version 3.0.0. In it, the app gains a lot of important additions for any Outlook or Exchange user.

1Do you have 5-10 seconds to spare? Google would like you to spend that time getting something done in its new Crowdsource app. You can apply your human sensibilities to translation and text transcription, and in return you get a sense of satisfaction. Yep, that's it.

The tasks available in Crowdsource depend on the language or languages you are fluent in. If you only speak one, you can help with image transcription and handwriting recognition.

nexus2cee_SuperSU_thumb.png

Android developer extraordinaire Chainfire has worked his magic again, releasing a new beta of SuperSU with support for the Galaxy Note7. There are a few caveats though, mostly due to new Samsung security measures inherent in the kernel, stopping Chainfire from using his usual exploits and instead having to apply workarounds.

In short, Chainfire says that Samsung has applied new built-in protection methods directly to the kernel. Any time a 'privileged' process that has a uid/gid value equal to or below 1000, it causes the device to kernel panic, meaning it immediately reboots.

Earlier this month, Google announced they were killing off Chrome apps for Mac, Windows, and Linux. While it makes logical sense to remove a feature that almost no Chrome users actually used, there are still hundreds of excellent Chrome apps affected by the decision. Google recommends that developers move their applications to Electron (another way to run web apps on the desktop), but doing that would require rewriting every component using Chrome's APIs to the Electron equivalents.

Duke-Nukem-3D-Collection-Android

Several years ago we learned that a port of the classic Duke Nukem 3D was coming to Android, courtesy of mobile games developer MachineWorks NorthWest. But that version of the game is no longer in the Play Store.

In January of 2015, news broke of another Duke Nukem Android port. To celebrate the 19th anniversary of the King, developer Voidpoint was faithfully re-creating the insanely fun adventures of Duke Nukem. Apparently the developer had acquired the rights to not only Duke Nukem 3D, but the expansions (Duke It Out in D.C., Duke Caribbean: Life’s a Beach, and Duke: Nuclear Winter), Duke Nukem 64, and the PlayStation’s Duke Nukem: Total Meltdown.

Untitled-5There's a new paradigm in strategy games. Whereas the old guard in real-time titles like Starcraft, Age of Empires, and Command & Conquer tended to get more complex with each release, the point of Auralux and its imitators is to boil strategy down to its purest components. It does so by making offense, defense, and resource gathering all more or less the same game mechanic, in the tradition of Galactic Conquest (AKA Galcon).

taskbar-freeform

When the Android N developer previews were released, we learned about a hidden "Freeform mode" that takes multi-window to a whole new level. Instead of being limited to two apps on top of each other or side by side, Freeform would let you open as many apps as you want and resize them any way to fit on the screen. But we later learned that Freeform wasn't going to be enabled on any existing Nexus devices, not even the Pixel C which would benefit a lot from it.
