AD article continues below...
Alltel is launching a new widget platform, called Celltop. It gives users quick access to stock prices, sports scores and weather as well as phone-based information like recent calls and ringtones. Alltel expects to offer additional widgets that should expand the functionality of this platform as time goes on. It is available as a free download for certain handsets today and should ship on all new handsets by the end of the year.
You can see how Celltop works here:
DirecTV Now: App Tour
A quick hands-on tour of the DirecTV Now app for Android. (An iOS version also available.) This is the boldest attempt yet to bring all of the major network and cable content to cord-cutters, and the full service is available from mobile apps, in addition to home streaming boxes.
HTC Updates Lock Screen and Sense Home Apps
HTC has made updates available to its Lock Screen and Sense Home apps for the One M9 and other handsets. The Lock Screen gains a significant refresh thanks to Lollipop-style notifications, full-screen album artwork during music playback, and more detailed local weather information.
LG Home 4.0 Brings App Drawer to G5
LG has made an alternate home screen experience available to G5 owners that brings back the app drawer. The G5 initially launched with LG's UX 5.0 home screen experience, which removed the app drawer and kept all apps on the home screen panels.
Siri Gets Smarter
Apple today announced that iOS 9 will include a new version of its Siri voice assistant that's both smarter and more proactive. The new Siri can respond intelligently to commands such as "show me my photos from Utah" and "remind about this web page when I get home".
BETTER THAN VC AST MENu's
Alltel's Celltop is an Innovative leap in cellphone UI
I really don't see how this is any different than Sprint's on demand application.
