About a year ago TiVo added video streaming to its Android app, and now the app can also download recordings for offline viewing. It’s something TiVo DVR owners with iOS have been able to do for nearly two years, but better late than never (we guess). As noted by Dave Zatz, if you have a Roamio Pro or Plus, the necessary hardware to convert TV shows and movies (that aren’t flagged by your cable company to prevent transfers) is built-in, while owners of a Roamio Basic, Roamio OTA or Premiere box will need a… Continue reading

Opera Mini for Android

To date, Opera Mini’s data saving on Android has been an all-or-nothing affair: either you visit heavily compressed websites with altered layouts, or… you find another browser. You won’t have to make that binary choice going forward, however. An updated version of Opera Mini introduces a "High" compression setting that, despite its name, is less aggressive than the original (now dubbed "Extreme"). It’ll still save you precious bandwidth, but it maintains image sizes and allows for such extravagances as video playback. Think of it as a way to overcome a slightly flaky 3G or WiFi connection, rather than a bid to conserve data at all costs. If that sounds like your cup of tea, the new Opera Mini should be available today.

CyanogenMod Cid

If you’ve been sitting on pins and needles waiting for the community-focused CyanogenMod firmware to both make the leap to Android 5.1 and fix that nasty Stagefright MMS exploit, you can relax. Hot on the heels of Cyanogen OS 12.1 (for devices like the OnePlus One), CyanogenMod 12.1 is arriving with both the perks from Android 5.1.1 as well as a Stagefright patch that theoretically keeps you safe. There are also Stagefright fixes for CyanogenMod 11 and 12.0, in case you can’t run the new operating system right away. There are a lot of devices to cover with this rollout, so don’t be alarmed if you don’t see a download right away — if your phone or tablet is already running CyanogenMod’s decidedly non-standard code, there’s probably an update waiting in the wings.
