Motorola Photon Q Getting an OTA Update



Today, Motorola Photon Q owners started getting an OTA update from Sprint. And nope it's not Jelly Bean. It's pretty much just a bug fix update. So it's still important but not the update we all wanted.

Notif, making your Grocery List look great!


Here's a new app for everyone to check out. It's a notes app that allows you to do text and picture notes as well as creating a list. And the app is Holo themed, so it looks great. You can grab it from the Play Store now, but it only supports Jelly Bean devices.

Apple reportedly Halved Orders for iPhone 5 Display


Good news for us Android fans. It looks like Apple isn't selling as many iPhone 5's as they thought they would. I wonder if the Galaxy S3 or Galaxy Note 2 is to blame?
