A new app update means a new APK Teardown here at AP. Today's victim is the Google Play Store, which was just freshly updated to 3.9.16. We've got all sorts of stuff to talk about.
A Built-In Malware Scanner

If you hadn't noticed, Dropbox and Google Drive have been having a friendly rivalry ever since the latter popped up on Android. The latest update to the Dropbox app (2.2) makes good on the additional photo features they've been adding over the last year by revamping the user interface, especially for the photos and videos automatically updated to your cloud storage drive. The UI is now more of a gallery than a bare-bones file browser, thanks to the new Photos tab. Read More

Google also saw fit to finally release a factory image for the Nexus Q, though it's based on Android 4.0.4. Read More

Sure, Google may have acquired Zagat and used the company's renowned ratings engine to start powering its data on everything from electronics stores to car washes. However, the review site got its start in restaurants way back in the day, and even after the purchase, continues to provide helpful information on every aspect of your food consumption outings. So, why not give the service its own app? Well, that's just what everyone's favorite search giant did! Read More
We've been waiting with bated breath for the arrival of Madfinger's online multiplayer title Shadowgun: DeadZone for months now, and the wait is finally over. For some of us anyway.
An open beta of the game just landed in the Play Store, but for the time being, it's only available for players using Tegra 3-powered devices while the gameplay and network code are perfected. The Store listing states it's available only in the Czech Republic, but a few of us from the AP team were able to install it and got in just fine. Read More
