Framer is a super simple app for Android Wear. Its only purpose is to round up the edges on your square Android Wear device. Most folks agree that round Android watches like the LG G watch R, and the Moto 360 look much cleaner than square Android watches. While this app will not make your square watch round, it will make the screen look a bit cleaner by adding a frame to round up the squared off look. This also allows you to set a round overlay so you can test round layouts on a square device. Head to the link below to grab this app.

If you are having trouble getting to sleep your Android tablet or smartphone may be to blame. Recent research suggests that exposure to blue light before sleep may distort your natural circadian rhythm and cause inability to sleep. If you are like me you really need a moment to wind down before being able to go to sleep so using your tablet or smartphone is something you do regularly. These devices inhibit the ability for your brain to produce melatonin. The twilight app may help by filtering out the blue light in your devices leds. Not only may this help you get to sleep earlier it also reduces strain on your eyes. Head to the Play Link below to give this app a try. Who knows maybe you'll be able to get to sleep a little sooner.

Android One is Google's attempt at breaking into emerging markets. These devices are hitting it big in countries like India and Indonesia. The affordability of these devices and the top notch specs make these devices good for any first time Android owner. If you have been able to get your hands on one of these phones you may be wondering how to get the bootloader unlocked and how to root.

There is now an All In One Toolkit that will allow you to do all things root. With the toolkit you are able to Unlock the Bootloader, Re-Lock the Bootloader, Root, Flash Custom Recovery, and Flash Stock Recovery. This toolkit is only working with Windows for now. You will need the correct USB drivers installed. The easiest way to do that is to turn on USB debugging, plug in your device and allow Windows to find and install the driver. Head to the link below for the download.

There is nothing worse than when you are trying to get something done on your device, and one of your friends keeps sending you messages taking you out of your rythm. When you are trying to get out an important email or you are trying to beat a level in a game and you receive a message you have to stop everything, pull down your notification, open the message (which covers the whole screen), read it, close it, then reopen whatever app you were previously in. With this mod your messages will just pop up and you can read them or dismiss them.

There are a few methods to achieve this depending on the particular device you are using. One method requires you to be rooted with recovery installed, you will simply flash a zip file in recovery. With the second method you will need to be rooted and you will use SQlite Editor to modify a particular file. Head to the link below for full instructions and downloads.

Many of us are still using Adobe Flash Player.
Adobe has announced that it has released an emergency security patch to fix a fatal security flaw in the Adobe Flash software.

Adobe has released security updates for Adobe Flash Player for Windows, Macintosh and Linux. These updates address a vulnerability that could be used to circumvent memory randomization mitigations on the Windows platform.

Adobe states:
"Adobe is aware of reports that an exploit for CVE-2015-0310 exists in the wild, which is being used in attacks against older versions of Flash Player. Additionally, we are investigating reports that a separate exploit for Flash Player 16.0.0.287 and earlier also exists in the wild. For the latest information, please refer to the PSIRT blog here."

If you are using Chrome Browser no worries as Flash Player is built in and Google will automatically patch it.

This week's fitness Friday is going to be about the hotly debated issue of over training..

First.. What is over training? Over training is, in short.. When you push your body past the point of exercise doing good or helping... To the point where you're actually doing more harm than good. Now the point at which you would be at risk for over training is debatable and varies based on many different things such as...

*your fitness level

*how hard you actually work(I'm looking at the people who are texting while occupying gym equipment, here..)

*your body type. The three basic male body types have different pros and cons to them.. The ability to gain mass easily and recover quickly are traits of endomorphs and mesomorphs .

*your nutrition plays a large part in this. Supplements can help you.. Get a clean whey. Don't get a brand that's known for nitro spiking..

These are just some of the factors that play a part in deciding when you would be "over training".

There are signs to watch for and be conscious of.. Your body will tell you when you've reached the point where you need to slow down. Some of these signs are...

*unquenchable thirst. Pretty self explanatory.

*soreness and fatigue. This is beyond doms or typical soreness from training. It's typical to be sore for 48-72 hours. But If you're sore well beyond that, you might back it down a bit.

*insomnia. From the nervous system overload. A general rule of thumb is to get 7-10 hours of sleep if you can,...

There's another device on the notch of Lollipop's handle. Motorola just last night started rolling out Android 5.0 Lollipop to the Moto G in both the US and India. Moto made it clear that this update will push out in phases, so don't get to worked up if it isn't coming to your device just yet.

Sound off if you own the Moto G and either received (or are looking forward) to the update!
