We've had a couple of readers ask how they can watch FX's new X-Men-esque TV show Legion in Australia. It's being broadcast on Foxtel — and Foxtel is cheaper than ever. But if you don't want to sign up to Foxtel, this post is for you.

If you're using a VPN app to secure your smartphone — maybe to download torrents, maybe to make your online banking a little more safe — then chances are, it's not doing what it pretends to. A paper co-authored by CSIRO's data science arm examined nearly 300 Android VPN apps and found that almost all of them leak some kind of user traffic data.
Google has recently been rolling out improvements to the Play Store that make it easier to find and manage beta apps, so if you're eager to try out some cutting edge features and are prepared to put up with a few additional bugs, there's never been a better time to get started. Here are 12 apps worth checking out.
Google is making it easier — and cheaper — to share with family members. For no additional charge, you can now share purchased apps, games, movies, TV shows and books with up to six family members across Android, iOS and the web. The offer has been rumoured for months, and it's now available to everyone with a Google Play account.
Earlier this year, Spotify beat Google to the punch when it announced its own recommendation engines for podcasts and video — not just songs. Now, Google Play Music is playing catchup and adding podcasts into its own audio offering.
There's no shortage of Star Wars-related games on the iTunes and Google Play stores, but today finally sees the launch of the first official Star Wars app that will now serve as your one-stop portal for everything from news, to trivia, to even sound effects. Never again will you have to scramble to find a Wookiee roar when you need one.
When Google introduced its Material Design manifesto to the world at I/O, it was made clear that it was only a matter of time before flat design took over the entire Googleverse — starting, it would seem, with the Play Store.
Ever been bit by accidental in-app purchases that your children, those little tykes, made on the Google Play Store? You might just qualify for a refund. The US Federal Trade Commission has announced that Google will be refunding $US19 million to consumers who were charged for inadvertent in-app purchases made by their kids on the Play Store.
Did you bust your Nexus 5 smartphone? Don't sweat it — users are saying that the Play Store will send you a brand-new (refurbished) handset for free, no matter how you broke yours. Google hasn't confirmed the offer just yet, but it seems legit.
The word "free" might as well be retired from app store pricing, given it almost never means what you think it means (to paraphrase Inigo Montoya). The European Union was also somewhat confused about the label and its use with mobile games that, if you plan to actually play them, money must be exchanged (*cough* Dungeon Keeper *cough*). The EU has now set out a number of guidelines the likes of Google and Apple must follow, though one has been more accommodating than the other.
