It’s that time again: a bunch of crappy apps have made their way to the Google Play Store, and it’s on you to make sure you don’t have them on your Android phone. If you do, you’ve just been suckered by “fleeceware.”…

What’s “fleeceware?” I confess, it’s a term I don’t often hear, but it’s basically deceptive marketing. An app hides its terms, fees, and/or subscription costs, or otherwise has some clever way to cajole you into signing up for a “free trial” that actually expires very soon and costs you a lot more than you expected when it’s over.

Best Weather App for Amazon’s Fire TV

Lately I have been really into the Amazon’s Fire TV… I currently own the Fire TV Stick and have learned to load apps from the Amazon app store and have learned how to sideload Android apps that are not really compatible with the Fire TV Stick. One app that I was looking for was a good weather app that was recognized as being compatible with the Fire TV Stick. What I found, after loading and trying many weather apps, is that the WeatherBug app works the best at this point.
