So Google has begun getting tough on what it takes to have good fast charging.

Nintendo’s Switch has its screen details leaked and it will have touch controls

You may remember the other week when Nintendo announced its newest gaming ‘console’ which is called the Nintendo Switch.

The AirJamz Music App has made it’s way onto Android this morning

AirJamz Music by Zivix LLC isn’t necessarily a game, but it isn’t just an application either, but a bit of both depending on how you look at it. What this neat little application does is allow for users to make music using the app and any physical movements you happen to do while it is running. This is, of course, assuming you have the official AirJamz toy that goes along with this application.

[Update: Now available] The Pokemon GO Plus accessory is confirmed for its September release still

While Apple held its event for the company’s new iOS products, Niantic Labs was a part of the entire event showing off a new Pokemon GO app for the Apple Watch called Pokemon GO Plus, named after the accessory the developers are still planning to release. Don’t get too sad we don’t have this app yet, because while it does do some nice things like notify you of nearby Pokemon, and what those Pokemon are, and more, you still need to pull out your phone to capture them.

Nvidia has submitted a new controller and remote specs to the FCC

Nvidia has submitted designs for a pair of new wireless peripherals to the FCC. To wit, they are a TV remote (similar to the one used with Nvidia’s Android TV model), and a game controller. Starting with the latter, it’s obvious that it’s a redesign for a few reasons. First, the shape of the controller is a bit on the leaner side, thinning out at the lower portion (think PlayStation’s Sixaxis controller, but not quite as drastic).

Pokemon GO Plus accessory launch date has now been pushed to September

There’s a lot of people Pokemon GO right now, and this probably won’t change anytime soon either. Unfortunately, in order to play this game you need to have it running, along with your Location/GPS going, and of course, you yourself need to be keeping an eye on everything going on in the game. This may not seem like a lot, but when you’re running around hunting Pokemon while doing other activities, you tend to miss capturing some of them.
