Remix OS 2.0 Beta Now Available For The Nexus 9, Nexus 10, And Remix Ultratablet

Jide Technology wants to give as many users the option to try out its own flavor of Android. This involved rolling out the 2.0 Beta to PC devices about a month ago with plenty of features that were missing from the alpha when we tested it a couple of months prior. But you don't have to have a PC to test Remix now as the OS has been released in beta for the Nexus 9 and Nexus 10. (Jide had previously released Remix OS 1.5 to these tablets, so this isn't the first time its software becomes available for them.)

The pages and downloads are available on Jide's website.

Play Movies & TV v3.13 Includes The New Play Branding Icon And Details An Aspect Of Streaming From The Family Library [APK Teardown + Download]

A few days ago, Google announced newly revised icons for its Play-branded apps. Newsstand was the first to emerge with the updated look, but aside from very minor tweaks to a few of the icons inside the app, there wasn't anything significant to be seen. The Play Movies & TV app received a pretty similar update, again with a few minimal icon changes and the new launcher icon, but there's actually something more interesting in the teardown: new rules about streaming paid content when it's shared in the family library.

What's New

After Google announced the new icons, I insisted that AP should not post about the individual updates if those were the only changes worth pointing out.

[App Review] The Wait For Posted Speed Limits In Google Maps Is Over Thanks To New App Velociraptor

I love Google Maps. It's one of the most useful applications on my phone, and I would be lost without it. Not metaphorically, but literally – I'm really quite awful with directions. A lot of great features have been added over the years, including some sweet new ones just a few days ago, But there's one feature we all still hunger for, and that feature is posted speed limits. Thanks to a new app called Velociraptor by developer PlusCubed, that's a feature we can now enjoy – albeit with a couple of minor hiccups.

Overview

Velociraptor works by overlaying a floating icon over top of the Google Maps app.

If you happen to own an Android phone or tablet that works with USB On-The-Go (OTG) for external storage, you'd probably like some storage gadgets that can take advantage of it. Combo drives - standard USB on one side, MicroUSB on the other - have been on the market for years, but they're not easy to find and they usually carry a premium over more conventional designs.

Floatify Version 10 Adds Android N-Themed Notifications And Swipe Actions

Android's notification system has gone through some pretty intense work since the start of the platform, but that doesn't mean that third-party developers can't improve it even more. Case in point: Floatify, a customization app that's been floating around (sorry) for the better part of two years. The latest version is number ten, and it adds a couple of features from the new Android N Developer Preview. If your device isn't invited to play with the Nexus crowd (or you just don't want to deal with the instability), you can back-port some of those neat touches.

[Weekend Poll] How Many Pictures Do You Take With Your Smartphone's Camera, On Average?

Smartphone cameras are often at the forefront of hardware evolution year over year when the latest and greatest devices are announced. Whether it be larger pixels, more pixels, better auto-focus, processing, lenses, or literally more cameras, smartphone makers are constantly trying to tell us that the cameras on their devices are always better than they were just twelve months - or less - prior.

This weekend's poll is easy: how many photos do you typically snap in a month? That's not a terribly hard thing to estimate (heck, just go into your gallery and look at dates / frequency of photo taking), so I've given some pretty tightly tuned options that I hope will encompass most of your use cases.

The Pokemon Trading Card Game Online Has A New Beta Version For Android Tablets, And Everyone's Invited

If you're around the same age as me, you fondly remember playing the Pokemon Trading Card Game (TCG for short) for hours in middle school. Or more accurately, you remember watching all the other kids play it because your parents couldn't afford to buy 10,000 licensed pieces of cardboard just so you could get a shiny Blastoise. (It's OK, I played the Game Boy Color version for vicarious thrills.) As it turns out, the Pokemon card game is still rolling along with a huge following, and now there's even an online digital version. Yes, that's a video game based on a card game based on a video game - try to keep up.

gReader RSS Reader Gets Its First Update In Eight Months, With Chrome Custom Tabs, UI Improvements, LG Multi-Window Support, And More

Since the fall of Google Reader and the rise of Feedly as its de facto replacement, gReader has risen to become one of the best options for RSS reading on the Play Store. That said, it's been quite a while since the app was significantly updated, or updated at all: before today, the last time the app was touched was back in August of last year. But today's update bumps it up to version 4.3.0 and adds quite a bit of new content, notably tweaks to the user interface, settings menu, and a host of bug fixes.
