If you recall, Microsoft announced last month that starting October this year, Skype will no longer be supported on the older versions of some operating systems including Android, iOS, Windows Phone, as well as OS X.

While that's still the case, the Redmond, Washington-based company has now updated its documentation to reflect that the app will continue to work until early 2017. The software giant, however, does make it clear that there will be "some limitations," suggesting not all features will be available post October.

SIM-Free Motorola Moto Z pre-order spotted on Amazon UK

Last we heard, the Motorola Moto Z and Moto Z Force were scheduled for an early September release in the UK and possibly China as well. We still have no proof of the latter, but today the regular Moto Z was spotted in an Amazon UK pre-order listing.

Currently, the handset can be pre-orderd form as well, so it is only natural for deals to start popping up elsewhere as well. However, we wouldn't exactly call Amazon's offer a deal, as its price seems to be set an a whopping GBP 610.19, while the aforementioned vendor has it listed at GBP 495. Mind you, we are talking about...


Get a new 16GB LG Nexus 5X today for $200

Both current Nexus handsets have been subject to a lot of promotions and price reductions lately, but this might just be a new record. There is a deal on eBay that you can probably still catch if you hurry and it can land you a brand new LG Nexus 5X for only $199.99.

However, there is somewhat of a catch, the device in question is the smaller 16GB model and may we remind you that the Nexus 5X sadly doesn't have a microSD card slot. So, you have to be pretty confident you will fit all your things on board. If you can looks past that, it is still a pretty good device with a...

ProShot app is finally coming to Windows 10 next week

Getting a good quality app on a Windows-powered smartphone is not an easy task. As most Microsoft fans and users will surely attest, it is typical to feel left out on the platform, due to a sad combination of poor business choices and lack of developer backing. We won't get too much into that now, but, on a more positive note, we will mention that after the launch of Windows 10 and the new Universal Apps platform, things have definitely started picking up.

Life seems to be easier for both new developers and those with a strong history on Windows, like Rise Up Games - the team...


Latest OnePlus 3 update reportedly breaks more things than it fixes

OnePlus has had its hands full with the OnePlus 3 recently. A seemingly never-ending stream of complaints and bug reports finally culminated in an eagerly-anticipated Oxygen OS 3.2.4 update earlier today. However, instead of the all-encompassing fix everybody was hoping for, the 26MB package might actually be a a Trojan horse in disguise.
