Adblock Fast returns to the Google Play Store
Adblock Fast, an ad blocker built to work with Samsung's ad blocking API, is back on the Google Play Store following its removal last week. Google reversed its decision late last week following an appeal by developer Rocketship. From Rocketship: We submitted an appeal on the Monday our update was rejected and we're happy to report that Google has reversed their decision, both accepting our appeal in an email sent to us on Friday evening and approving and republishing Adblock Fast by the time we woke up this morning.

This time also comes with an added perk, but only if you're interested in the 32GB LTE version of the tablet.

1Password For Android Hits Version 6.0, Gets Redesigned And Fingerprint Reader Support
Password protection is no joke, and if you can remember all of your passwords, then you're doing something wrong. The most likely option is that you're using the same password (or a few variations) across every site on the web. That's not a thing anyone should do. Thankfully there are apps like 1Password to help you out with the whole password thing — no one should have to remember 1600 different passwords, and keeping them stored in a note-taking document is basically a terrible idea.

Russia's Internet czar looks to squeeze more taxes from Google Play and App Store
One of Russian President Vladimir Putin's top advisors is looking to raise taxes on digital purchases made in the Google Play Store, along with Apple's iTunes and App Stores. German Klimenko, a Russian businessman, and the recently-appointed Internet czar for the country, is calling for an increased value-added tax (VAT) of up to 18 percent to be applied to digital purchases. The proposal would impact not just Apple and Google, but other non-Russian companies as well. From Bloomberg: Klimenko, 49, is pushing to raise taxes on U.S. companies to help level the playing field for Russian competitors such as Yandex and Mail.ru. His efforts mirror those of governments across Europe and beyond to squeeze more revenue out of Google, Apple and other multinationals with increasingly complex billing and ownership structures. Product categories affected by these new taxes include games, movies, and ads. Currently, VAT is charged on digital goods created by Russian companies, an issue th...

How to use multiple accounts in Instagram for Android
Instagram finally has added the ability to easily switch from one account to another without logging out, making life — or at least our social media life — easier for those of us who run Android blogs, have personable pets or suffer from alter egos. And it's a pretty simple measure. Here's how to set things up to use multiple accounts on Android. How to add another account in Instagram for Android First, you're actually going to need this feature to have been turned on. It appears that the multiple account feature is being pushed server-side, but we've also been receiving a few app updates of late, so it's a little hard to tell. But it appears that Instagram actually has to flip the switch on your account first. Once that's been done, here's how to add a second account: Tap the little profile tab. It's the silhouette icon in the bottom right of your Instagram app. That takes you to your profile. Tap the three-dot overflow button in the top right corner. That gets you to t...

Weekly Poll Followup: Battery monitoring is best with a percentage
Last week we asked How you prefer to monitor your battery. As important as our phones have become in day to day life, if you run out of juice then you're not going to be using it for much. There are a few different ways to monitor the battery life on your phone, and we wanted to know how you prefer to do just that. In last week's poll we gave you four options: "just the battery icon," "battery percentage displayed," "with a battery widget," and "I couldn't care less until I get a low power warning." This week's winner was "battery percentage displayed" with a whopping 4,402 individual votes or 64 percent of the poll. In second place with 20 percent of the vote was "just the battery icon". In third place was "with a battery widget", snagging 10 percent of the vote or 687 individual votes. In last place with only 6 percent of the vote was "I couldn't care less until I get a low power warning." Unsurprising results, given how vital proper battery level awareness is on modern smart...

Uber tries to get along with black cab drivers in London by letting them use the app for free
Uber has published a new blog post on the company website detailing how both Uber and black cab drivers in London can coexist and get along just fine. Said drivers will now be able to fire up the Uber app and utilize the Taxi option to connect to paying customers, without paying out a service fee for the first year of use. It's billed as a means for black cab drivers to reach new customers and get more business, as opposed to relying strictly on hailing passengers on the street. This should help drivers at those periods when there aren't many customers looking to hail a black cab in and around London. It also means that those who need a cab will have more choice with the ability to use black cabs when planning a journey in the Uber app. Source: Uber ...

Samsung trademarks “Always On Display” for Galaxy S7
Indian import listings reveal 'waterproof' components for the Galaxy S7, S7 edge
Last month, rumors suggested that the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge would offer water resistance. It looks like that may well be the case, according to listings on India's import/export tracking site Zauba. The site has listed numerous waterproof components making their way to the country, such as a waterproof mic and SIM tray, along with conductive gasket tape for the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge. Given the quantities listed on Zauba, it is likely these components will make their way into Indian retail units of the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge, as Samsung locally assembles all handsets sold in the country. As for the devices themselves, it looks like this year's offerings will feature a curvier glass back, with the sensor sitting flush with the body. The chunkier back is interesting as that could lead to a larger battery. As for water resistance, it may turn out to be the feature that gives Samsung's upcoming phones an edge over its rivals this year. Source: Zauba (1), (2); Via: SamMobile...
