Koush's AllCast app does a good job of streaming media to all manner of set top boxes, and of course the Chromecast. However, it hasn't always looked awesome doing it. Well, now it does – the new update comes with a refreshed UI and adds Muzei support for good measure.

AllCast now has a much improved slide out navigation menu and tabbed browsing of media. The color scheme is nice too.

The Xposed Framework provides incredible, fine-grained control over the features and functionality of Android. You can do almost anything, but sometimes you just need an extra button – it's good for that too. ViewInPlay is a new module that handily creates links to the Play Store.

When activated, this module adds a button to the app info screen that links out to the app's Play Store page. Cool, but there's another module that does this.

The Galaxy S4 on AT&T started getting its KitKat update today, but the Note 3 is still on the waiting list. Some users were excited to see an OTA notification pop up on Samsung's latest phablet only to have their hopes crushed by what turns out to be another build of Android 4.3.

It's finally happening. After months of leaks and speculation, the Google Now Launcher (previously known informally at the Google Experience Launcher) has been dropped into the Play Store. This is essentially just an updated stub app that will enable the home screen functionality in the Google search app on most Android devices. However, this isn't a universal release.

The first official version of the Google Now Launcher is only installable on the Nexus and Google Play Edition devices running KitKat.

Asus likes to take its sweet time releasing accessories for its devices, so we're just now seeing the official wireless and wired docks for the 2013 Nexus 7. Google released the updated Nexus charger a few months ago, but these are designed specifically for Asus' 7-inch slate.

The PW100 is wedge-shaped with a 60-degree angled surface. The video above only shows it charging in landscape orientation, so the inductive coils might not reach high enough to work in portrait.

Samsung usually produces both Exynos and Snapdragon variants of its flagship phones, the former mostly used in non-LTE versions. However, the company didn't mention Exynos at all during the Galaxy S5 event. Now Samsung has gotten around to announcing two new Exynos 5 chips, one of which is probably going to be in the GS5.

Exynos-54221

The Exynos 5422 is a small spec bump over the 5420 announced last summer. It consists of four Cortex-A15 cores and four Cortex-A7 cores in a big.LITTLE configuration.

The Moto G isn't a high-end phone, but it has sold extremely well for the company. So it's no surprise it continues to get some update love. This phone is already on Android 4.4.2, but it's getting a maintenance update to fix a few annoying issues.

Cal comes from the makers of Any.do, and it's got the same level of polish and functionality users of that app expect. Cal is getting a nice update today that adds a new feature called HeadsUp. This is actually a collection of features that are designed to make meetings more convenient.

There is an app for pretty much everything at this point. It's like rule 34 for smartphones, and that's where Type Your Ringtone comes in. You just enter some text, and the app turns it into a ringtone. What, this isn't what you've always wanted?
