Even though Android 5.0 Lollipop hasn’t yet seen its official release, quite a few users are using the latest version of the Android 5.0 developer preview as their daily driver OS. With the latest revision, Lollipop has gained quite a boost in both functionality and polish, with many more applications and features working than in the previous two releases. Unfortunately, however, there are still a few third party applications here and there that don’t quite work as expected, and data backup applications have been a bit tricky thus far.
This is where XDA Senior Member gh0stslayer‘s new app Backup+ comes in. As its name implies, Backup+ is a complete backup and app manipulation solution similar to the other applications already available for the platform. Backup+, however, is fully compatible with the Android L developer previews, with full Android Lollipop functionality. It even looks good while doing so, thanks to a completely Material Design-themed UI. The app is currently at an alpha stage, but many users in the thread are already reporting success. Moreover, Backup+ even offers batch backup and restore functionality, often relegated to premium versions in other solutions.
If you’re running Android Lollipop and have been looking for a compatible backup solution, head over to the Backup+ application thread to get started.

While Bing has between 20 and 30% search market share in USA, worldwide it is close to the low single digits.
Microsoft has however never been satisfied with their market position, and a recent job post makes it clear they are willing to put in the work to do better.
The job post for a Business Development Manager explains that Bing is in the midst of the most ambitious geographic and product expansion in its 5 year history.
In Latin America (including Brazil, Mexico, Argentina and potentially others) Microsoft hopes to do this by driving and execute strategic partnerships and tactical deals in key search content areas such as local, entertainment, music, video, sports, products and social, for mobile/tablets, web/desktop, Xbox and other devices.
This data is needed to meet the strategic needs of Microsoft’s core products – Windows, Windows Phone, Office and Skype. Windows Phone has a decent market share in places like Mexico and Brazil, but who is under severe pressure by the dominant Android operating system. Having good local data would allow Microsoft to make services like Cortana useful in the region.
I am sure most of our readers will agree this work is much overdue. See the post at Microsoft here.
If you’re as obsessed with mobile devices as the vast majority of our forum goers, chances are that you browse multiple Android-related websites to keep tabs on all the latest Android news. Manually browsing the web for content, however, isn’t always the best approach. Luckily there are plenty of tools available to aggregate all the relevant content into one place, but following Google Reader’s demise, many have been looking for the “just right” replacement for their Android news fix. XDA Senior Member grilledbacon32‘s new application TechTalk hopes to do exactly that.
TechTalk is an Android news app that aggregates Android-related articles from various sites across the web. Currently, the app supports XDA-Developers (both the XDA Portal and XDATV), Android Central, Android Authority, Phandroid, Android Police, Android and Me, Cult of Android, Droid Life, Android Pit, Android Headlines, Android Spin, Droid Games, and Rootz Wiki. The app is laid out much like most feed readers, with articles categorized by site or all at once. The interface is clean, and there is a slide-out hamburger menu to switch feeds or change settings.
If this sounds like something that’s right up your alley, simply head over to the TechTalk Android News application thread to get started.
