Earlier this year Pandora added the Sleep Timer function to their mobile app so Pandora listeners can fall asleep to their favorite stations.

This long-awaited and much-welcome feature comes with the standard alarm clock package: timer and snooze functions -- and even ties in with the Sleep Timer.

Firefox for Android ups its game in version 26

Posted: 10 Dec 2013 10:37 PM PST

On Tuesday, Mozilla launched an update to its flagship browser, Firefox, bringing some new graduates from the Beta channel. The latest addition to Firefox for Android adds the Home screen, which helps improve access to frequently visited sites in a swipeable menu. You can now swipe between Bookmark, History, and Reading List screens when you open a new tab -- as you already can with Opera and Chrome.

Tapping the upper-left corner now brings a slide out menu that holds your opened tabs, similar to Windows 8. The final noteworthy bit users will notice is the curve-in to the main URL field; Australis, Mozilla's long-awaited unified design for mobile and desktop looks like it's making its first step toward stable release.

Finally, Firefox also added Bing and Yahoo! as search engine options under browser settings. You can download Firefox for Android here.
