IFTTT on Android and An Affordable Flagship Phone – News Bits
IFTTT now available on Android
If this then that. It’s a service that let’s you use triggers to complete actions and is automated. It was Web only at first. It was released for iOS last year. It’s now available for Android devices as well. The Verge has a really good write-up, outlining the new Android Specific actions that are available.
The ONEPLUS ONE is officially available
Well, kind of. You still have to be invited to purchase the handset as of now, but the OnePlus One actually seems to live up to all the hype the company has been generating. Their motto is “Never Settle” and they aim to offer quality handsets at affordable prices. Going by the OnePlus One, the quality extends to beyond just build quality – it has top end internals and runs a version of CyanogenMod 11 that was made specifically for this device. The OS itself is customisable and you can change pretty much everything about it. Want on-screen buttons instead of using the capacitive buttons? Can do. Want to change the lockscreen look and shortcuts? Can do.
OnePlus is calling the One (not to be confused the HTC One or the HTC One -M8) the “2014 Flagship Killer”.
