Leaked blurry Droid Turbo photos confirms flagship specs

The latest batch of blurry photos of the unannounced Motorola Droid Turbo that’s said to be headed to Verizon’s 4G LTE network confirms the specs that we think we may already know from prior leaks. The Android smartphone would join the Moto X 2014 and Motorola-made Google Nexus 6 on Verizon’s network. Unlike the Nexus 6, however, the Droid Turbo in the leaked photo is shown running Android 4.4.4 rather than Google’s latest sweet flavor of Lollipop. Other specs include a QHD 2560 X 1440-pixel display, 3 GB of RAM, and 32 GB of built-in storage.

Microsoft debuts Torque, Bing search for Android Wear with a twist of your wrist

Microsoft is on a roll with Android support today. The company’s Garage program has just launched an app for Android Wear that makes searching Bing a bit more convenient. The app presumably takes its name from its main feature: twisting your wrist will open a Bing query, at which point you simply speak to ask your question.

Google’s AppCompat v21 brings Material Design to pre-Lollipop devices

This is great news for developers. Google has updated the popular AppCompat library to version 21, and introduced a new Toolbar widget that will allow for a more Material Design look and feel in apps built for devices running older firmware. This update is exactly what we’re all seeing in recent updates for Google Apps like the Play Store or Play Newsstand, and is how we can have the new design language on the majority of Androids, even if they aren’t running Lollipop.

Twitter’s ‘Digits’ lets you sign in to apps with your phone number

Twitter's 'Digits' lets you sign in to apps with your phone number

Passwords? Those are old hat, according to Twitter, which just launched a new service called Digits.

The service, announced at Twitter’s first developer conference in San Francisco, lets users sign in to apps using their phone numbers.

Instead of having to use email and password combinations or sign in with Twitter, Google, Facebook, or another service, Digits lets you simply enter your phone number when signing up for a new app or service.

You’re all set after you enter a confirmation code sent to you via SMS.

Back to one-step

It’s like the two-step authentication offered by many apps and services, which asks users to enter a code sent by SMS when they sign in on new devices – except Digits skips the first step.

Twitter says Digits uses the social network’s own security infrastructure and that signing in is both "simple" and "safe."

But other than that Digits appears to have no tangible relationship with Twitter’s other products; it’s a standalone service that developers can implement in their apps independently of any Twitter support.

It’s actually part of Twitter’s Fabric, a mobile development kit also announced at the Twitter conference. Among other new features Fabric brings are system-level sign in on Android, letting users sign in once to access all Twitter-enabled apps on their devices, and the ability for devs to let users send tweets directly within apps, Engadget reports.

A few quick thoughts on Google Inbox

Can Google’s new Inbox change the way we fail at email? Quite possibly, but it’s early yet.

Google today announced Inbox, a sort of Gmail with training wheels. That is, it tries to make your email experience easier by automatically grouping emails together into categories. It’s not unlike what Gmail already does with its tabbed inbox — primary, social, promotions, updates and forums sections — but Inbox makes it look good, far less clinical than Gmail proper.

Inbox is invite-only for now. (No, we don’t have any to give out yet. But thank you for asking.) And while it’s available on Android and iOS, it’s currently only available in web form on the Chrome browser. (Which really means it’s not yet available in web form, but we digress.)

This is the sort of thing that takes a little time — and email — to really get a sense of, but I’ve got a few random thoughts.
