One of the most annoying things about my LG G5 is the lack of an app drawer. This is one of the most essential parts of the Android launcher. It allows you to keep all your apps neatly organized and clears up space on your home screen for widgets and your favorite apps. I thought I might be able to get used to not having the app drawer, but no such luck. I had to downgrade the UI to get the app drawer back.

Verizon is finally releasing an OTA update for the LG G5. This update gives you the ability to add an app drawer to your homescreen. Go to settings, Home screens, and choose home with app drawer. There were also updates to the USB connection screen. The final update is an improvement to the LG Health app.

The V10 is also getting an update. The update is to improve wifi calling.

Folks are getting hyped for the release of the iPhone 7, Note 7, and LG V20. I'm over here like when does the Nexus come out?! The next generation of Nexus devices should be here this fall, and until now they have been pretty well hidden and mysterious. Yesterday some leaks hit the web giving us more information regarding the HTC Nexus Sailfish.

The leak comes by way of a build.prop file. In the file we find that the device will feature a 1080p display and qualcomm's latest chipset. The leak specifies the cpu as model number MSM8996 which is the same as the Snapdragon 820, but may also be used for the Snapdragon 821 as well. We also expect the device to feature a 5" display. I don't know about you but I was really hoping for a 2k display. I'm not sure why Google and HTC would settle for a lower res screen. Would you be happy with these specs on your next Nexus device?

We won't see the official release of the Note 7 until August 2. That being said you can get a bit of Note 7 experience now! The Note 7 stock rom was dumped to the web a few days back. Developers have already started to dig into the system dump, and of course the first thing they grab and release is the stock wallpapers. These wallpapers actually look pretty sleek. You can download them now for your device. Head to the link below

A few days back I covered a hack that allowed you to add a joystick and change your location in PokeMon Go. There are all kinds of reasons you wouldn't want to do this. You can be banned, you lose out on the "treasure hunt" aspect of actually roaming the neighborhood, you expel less calories, and you ruin the experience for those not cheating as you are able to level up and grow your PokeMon much faster. Still there are those of you that live in the middle of no where and no matter how far you walk you will never run into a Poke stop, or there are those of you who would love to hit the streets with everyone else but are handicapped and it is difficult to get out to play the game. Maybe you just don't want your kids roaming the street by themselves and you don't have time to walk with them while they play.

There are legitimate reasons you would want to do this. The method we covered a few days back required you to be rooted and have the xposed framework installed. There is a new method that does not require root at all! All you need is the "Fly GPS" app. Once you have the app installed go into your settings, developer options and choose this app for mock locations. Be sure high accuracy mode...

One of the best features of a OnePlus device is incredible amount of Root and Rom support. The devices are open and are extremely developer friendly. The OnePlus 3 released with Oxygen OS, but even before the device started shipping there were already beta builds of CyanogenMod 13 available for the phone.

Nighties have officially been released for the OnePlus 3. Of course you will need to be rooted with custom recovery installed. Head to the link below to grab the nightly build for flashing!

Samsung has been making the wireless charger better with every iteration. The first charge pad simply charged your Galaxy device wirelessly ,the next version added fast charging, and the latest charge pad includes a stand which makes using your phone while charging much easier. The only downside to any of these chargers is that you can only charge one device at a time. Of course you could buy many charge pads to charge many devices.

A patent was filed by Samsung back in January that would allow you to wirelessly charge your Samsung Gear Fit 2 or Gear S3 at the same time your are charging your phone. There are 3 designs included in the patent filing. They mostly involve ways to charge your Gear smartwatches. I personally don't use a Gear smartwatch so for me the added benefit won't be necessary, but if you have two devices this would make things super convenient. Would you find something like this useful?

There was a bit of confusion over the weekend surrounding reports that Cyanogen would be giving up on the Operating Business in favor of going in to the app business. This would not be shocking news if it were true as Cyanogen just finished laying off more than 20% of its work force. AndroidPolice cited sources which said that Cyanogen would be pivoting to Apps.

Today Kirt McMaster the CEO of Cyanogen Inc took to twitter to clear the air.
While it doesn't look like Cyanogen will be "putting a bullet in Google's head" anytime soon it is nice to know that they will remain committed to continuing the development of one of our favorite Operating systems.

The Note 7 will be the first Samsung flagship device to feature USB Type-C. With that being said if you spent money on a Samsung Gear VR with your last Galaxy device you will have to spend money on another Gear VR with the Note 7, that is as long as they don't give them away with your pre-orders like they did with the Galaxy S7 Edge. Maybe they gave so many away to clear space for the new model.

Apparently the new Gear VR includes support for not only the Note 7, but also the Galaxy S6, S7, Note 4, and Note 5. That would mean that this unit has both USB Type C and micro USB support. The device is listed at 90Euros for some European retailers. That would be around $98 in the US. It is nice to know that you won't have to keep two units to support your new and older devices.

Google released the final preview build of Android Nougat a few weeks back. One of the main features in Preview Build 5 was the new and improved Google Camera. The update brings the camera version to 4.1. The first thing you will notice in the updated camera is a list of new UI tweaks and animations. These changes include flattened settings layout, zoom animation when tapping a photo to view, new look for timer/hdr/flash toggles, hdr processing animation, volume key action options (shutter, zoom, volume), swipe left to right to open up the menu, and nav buttons dim when you open the app.

There were a few more major updates to the app which includes the ability to pause a video recording. A new gesture allows you to easily change between the front and rear camera. When you twist your phone away from you and back toward you in a twisting motion you will switch between front and rear cameras. The updated version of the app is available for download below, but unfortunately it will only work with Android Nougat 7.0.

If you plug a few USB thumb drives into your OnePlus 3 you would probably just assume that the phone does not support OTG (on the go usb). The device does not support OTG by default. You have to go into settings and enable it by default. This whole situation made for some major confusion over the weekend. Benson Leung who was pretty critical of the USB Type-C implementation on the OnePlus 2 said of the OnePlus 3, "OnePlus simply hasn't learned how to build a phone properly." This statement was after a report that the device didn't include the support.

The report on "gtrusted" has since been edited after the writer discovered thanks to the help of some commenters that the feature is supported by the OP3 it just has to be turned on in settings. Devices like the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P are enabled by default so it would be pretty easy for someone familiar with those devices to expect the feature to be enabled by default. I personally don't understand why you wouldn't want it turned on by default in order to make the user experience a bit easier. Maybe it is to prevent malicious software from being installed by someone who could just pick up your phone and insert a USB stick? Who knows why OnePlus...
