Vimeo Finally Updates Its Busted Old App To v2.0, But No Casting Support Until Q1 2016

The Vimeo app is one of those famously bad apps that actually make a mediocre mobile website look good by comparison. After years of being behind the curve, Vimeo is finally stepping up its app game with a v2.0 update. There's a lot of good stuff here, but you'll have to wait a bit for all the pieces to be in place.

[Deal Alert] Use Android Pay To Tap And Pay With A Nexus Before 12/31 And Get A $20 Best Buy Gift Card

This one's easy: if you use Android Pay on a Nexus device before December 31st, 2015, Google will add a $20 Best Buy e-gift card to your Android Pay... digital repository of cards. (Side note: what are we supposed to call the collection of cards and gift cards and loyalty stuff in Android Pay if not a wallet? This is awkward.) There is a limited supply of these gift cards, however, so the promo may end before 12/31 if people really get on this (I certainly will be taking advantage ASAP).

The nitty-gritty details aren't very rigorous, but here's what you need to know.

Project Fi Now Supports Tablets And Internet-Only Devices, Won't Charge A Bogus Per-Month "Device Fee"

A Project Fi support page for tablets and "other compatible devices" has just gone live, and it spills all the juicy details of the very-soon-to-launch (we assume) feature on Google's MVNO. The best part? The money: it costs nothing to add a tablet to your Project Fi plan. There is no monthly device fee, and it doesn't even appear that Google is charging for SIMs, though we've yet to verify that.

Pandora Introduces Thumbprint Radio, A Station Based On Every Song You've Given A Thumbs Up

You start with a song. Ten seconds in, you decide that this one isn't your style. You give it a thumbs down, and the track goes away. Another song begins. You love it, and give it a thumbs up. You don't particularly like or dislike the next one, but you give a few of the songs after more approval. Then you create another station, and you start the process again.

Samsung Pay Adds 19 New Visa And MasterCard Issuers, Including PNC Bank And KeyBank

A mobile payment service is only useful if you can, you know, use it... which must be pretty disheartening for customers of smaller banks and credit unions. Each one of them needs to be certified with new payment systems before their customers can join in the "fun" of paying for stuff with their phones. Today Samsung Pay, the semi-proprietary system that's surprisingly interoperable thanks to some neat payment tech, adds a whopping 19 new Visa and MasterCard issuers to its list of compatible banks and similar companies.

Pushbullet Adds Group Texting Support And Ability To Switch Drives While Using Remote Drive [APK Download]

Pushbullet added two small, but useful, new features this morning. First, replying to group SMS from a computer or tablet is now (finally) supported. In a small gesture of holiday goodwill, Pushbullet won't count group SMS messages against the 100 message limit for non-paying users for the rest of the month.

Group texting is now available through Pushbullet's Chrome extension, Windows desktop app, and Pushbullet's website. Support for Safari, Opera, and Firefox is coming soon. Replying to group texts also requires a phone running Android 5.0 and above.

The second change Pushbullet added this morning pertains to the new remote files feature that was added earlier this month.

Android Pay Can Now Handle In-App Purchases, And Some Popular Services Have Already Jumped On Board

The words "in-app purchases" aren't generally what we want to see in a headline, but in this case, they're not out to rip you off. App developers can now use Android Pay to manage their in-app purchases.

This should cut down on the number of times Android Pay users have to enter their credit card details. If you're using Lyft to order a ride and already have your payment methods saved in Android Pay, the app will pull them up automatically. With this change, Android Pay speeds up the checkout process for the kinds of purchases people are already accustomed to making from their phones.
