Google Releases Invite-Only 'Divide Productivity Preview' Suite For Security-Minded Corporate Users

Half a year ago, Google purchased Divide, a security-focused startup that isn't exactly a household name in the consumer space. The company appealed to enterprise clients by separating personal data from work-related stuff using containers. The acquisition, we figured, came as part of Google's efforts to make Android a better option for corporate users that have traditionally acted squeamish towards the mobile OS.

Now we're seeing at least one byproduct of that arrangement.

Target Releases Obnoxiously Named But Cool Healthful App To Manage Your Target Pharmacy Prescriptions

If you get your prescriptions filled at Target, the big-box store has just released an app on the Play Store to help you manage them much more easily. The Healthful (shudder) app lets you submit refill requests, transfer scrips to another store, and can even help you find a cheap generic for your prescribed medication. Oh, and it tracks your prescription fill status, too, so no more annoying SMSs or phone calls.

Sprint Galaxy S5 Android 4.4.4 OTA Appears To Actually Really Be Rolling Out This Time

While Verizon rather weirdly got this OTA well before any of the other major carriers over 2 months ago, Sprint is finally officially announcing that its Galaxy S5 will be receiving the update to Android 4.4.4 starting today.

Seven weeks ago, Samsung jumped the gun and announced that the Sprint version would be getting 4.4.4, and its own update site further alleged that the OTA had gone live way back at the end of September.

AT&T Galaxy Note 3 Getting Android 4.4.4 OTA, Adds Knox 2.0, Kids Mode, Side Sync 3.0, Updated Bloatware

If you're the owner of a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 for AT&T, you should be getting your Android 4.4.4 OTA update starting today. This will bring you up from Android 4.4.2, and Samsung has packed in a few extras with this 459MB OTA, as well. Namely: Kid mode, SideSync 3.0, Knox 2.0, virtual tour mode in the camera app, and some updated AT&T bloatware.

The Uber app has been added to the list of things-AT&T-won't-let-you-uninstall, and I imagine there are a boatload of bug-fixes and the standard exploit patches you would expect in an OTA of this magnitude.

Big Red has just announced a pair of (kind of) budget-friendly tablets with LTE just in time for the holidays. So why not give someone the gift of a two-year mobile data contract? Well, maybe you should ask first. At any rate, you can get the LG G Pad 7.0 and 10.1 for $49.99 and $199.99 with a new contract, but these are temporary promo prices.

YouTube Music Key Is Rolling Out Now

We knew that YouTube Music Key would start rolling out this week, and it looks like it's in full force at this point. A bunch of us here at AP already have it, and from the look of our tip box, most of you do as well. If not, well, I'm sorry. Here's a quick look at what you're missing.

As expected, we've got offline playback (you can choose to save the videos in 360p or 720p), background playback, and ad-free music videos.

Android TV's Google Search App Arrives In The Play Store For Easier Updates

You can navigate the Android TV interface using a remote control or dedicated app, but Google would really like for you to use your voice. Even if you're typing, the company would prefer you search for what you're looking for, rather than browse manually. This is Google, we're talking about.

The TV version of the Google search app has now found its way into the Play Store, which should allow for easier updates going forward, even if there's no particular reason to rush and download it right away.

Pushbullet Update Brings Copy & Paste Feature To The Chrome And Firefox Extensions, A Few Other Enhancements

You guys love Pushbullet, right? If not, it's probably because you haven't used it. This is easily one of the most powerful utilities available on Android, and definitely one worth having installed. And as of today, it's getting even more powerful (or convenient, at least).

As you probably already know, the guys behind Pushbullet never sleep. I've asked them how they seem to gogogo all the time, but they're not giving up on any secrets.

New SwiftKey Update Brings Significant Performance Improvements, Twelve New Languages

SwiftKey has been my go-to keyboard on every Android device I've owned for the last...long time. Google's stock keyboard keeps getting better and better, but it just can't seem to match what SK can do, and every time it gets close, the SwiftKey guys generally push an update that puts it back in the lead by a large margin.

Today's update, though, is something else altogether. This is probably the most significant update to SwiftKey in the last several months, possibly even longer.
