Titanium Backup update – save and restore your Bluetooth pairings any time you want

Titanium Backup, the backup app you use every time you want to save something on your phone after rooting, has just received an update. The app can now back up and restore any Bluetooth pairings on devices with Android 4.2 and above, including Lollipop. If you have a device running on Android Jelly Bean or higher, you can use it to back up and restore your Bluetooth settings and connections at any time.

 

In case you don’t want to reconnect your phone to the same car you have been using for years now or if you love your headset very much, you can save the connection via Bluetooth so that you can restore them any time you want. As long as you are rooted, of course. It all comes with a catch, you see.

 

With the Titanium Backup Pro version – which you can pay for – you also get backup, restore and freeze for apps, data and Market links too. The app protects system apps, apps and external data you put on your SD card too. It allows you to move data from and to your SD card and you can browse app data and query the Market to see detailed information regarding the app.

You can finally find VLC on Google Play Store available for download. All those who know a thing or two about technology, you just know that VLC is the best and most popular media player around.

The app is now finally on its 1.0 build and out of beta, which means it is available for everyone in stable form.

 

The 1.0 build solves a few problems that affected devices with ARMv8 processors too, among other things. Chromecast support still hasn’t reached live yet, even if it was announced this summer. VLC supports a panoply of audio and video formats, which means it can open virtually any media file.

Google to screen and approve Android TV apps before launching them in Play Store

Android TV apps will have to be approved and screened by Google before becoming available in the Play Store. There are few details known regarding the reason behind this decision, but don’t paint Google in evil colors just yet.

There is no indication that this new policy will affect Android and Android Wear devices and apps because it will probably not be in Google’s interests to do so. If screening and approving apps will make them better and more viable choices for users, then it means that this decision is for the best.

This decision could be an attempt at producing better results with Android TV than with its predecessor, Google TV. That one had sufficient horrible apps to last a lifetime. Google may be learning from its mistakes and, even if Android TV is still at the beginning, the future seems bright.

Google Now App Launcher can now be installed on devices with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and above

The Google special app launcher can now be installed on any Android devices with Android 4.1 OS or newer. The app first appeared last year on the Nexus device and what it does is integrate Google’s virtual assistant service into a stable panel to the left of the primary homescreen. It has larger icons than the standard launchers on usual phones and it continues to expand availability to the launcher for around 75% of Android devices out there.

The app is used to give verbal commands to Google in order to find various services, places or locations easier, and you can also tap the search box and immediately enter your question for a fast response. Google Now Launcher also offers easy access to your favorite Google services and products such as Gmail, Maps or YouTube. You can even choose a wallpaper to go with your new changes!

The Google Now Launcher can be found on Google Playstore where you can download it to your account for free. Check it out below.
