[Another One Bites The Dust] Google Is Ending Support For The Catalogs Android App On August 15th

Another day, another cancelled Google product. Try to sound surprised as I report that the Google Catalogs Android app will go the way of the dodo on August 15th. Too difficult? I understand. I couldn't muster up any shock either. Catalogs scratches a very niche itch, one Google was willing to address on tablets but never bothered with on smartphones. While it's true that some people have installed the app, the vast majority of Googlers probably never knew it existed.

[New App] BBQScreen Android Client Beta Launches Alongside A Major Update To BBQScreen Remote Control

Screen mirroring on Android is still a bit of a hit-and-miss prospect. Plenty of issues can arise from environmental factors like network congestion, to the type of device being used (*ahem*, Tegra). A few months ago, we covered a recent entrant in this market, BBQScreen by XpLodWilD and nebkat. The app was able to deliver a pretty consistent 25 fps from several types of devices over WiFi, Bluetooth, or USB. Unfortunately, several bugs and incompatibilities plagued some users, but the developers have been working hard to remedy many of those issues.

[New App] Popular iOS 'Transit' App Finds Its Way Into The Play Store, Makes Comparing Routes A Breeze

One of Android's strengths is that its built-in navigation software is top notch, but that doesn't mean we have to use it. There are alternatives that make it easier to discover new places and come up with ways to get between them more quickly. Transit isn't a replacement for Google Maps, but it's a nice tool to have in your belt when trying to get from point A to point B.

Aviate Launcher Review: One Of The Most Powerful Alpha Products I've Ever Used

Aviate Launcher, if you haven't heard of it, is a new home screen replacement that looks to offer you information right when you need it and which is, at the time of writing, in the middle of an invite-only alpha period.

After receiving my invitation recently, I was anxious to take the launcher for a spin. I have no doubt it will improve as it progresses toward a broad launch, and there are a few drawbacks, but it is already one of the best alpha products I've ever used.

The Old Reader May End Public Availability Following Flood Of Former Google Reader Users, Developers Want Their Lives Back

Perhaps Google Reader's largest advantage wasn't its features, usability, or ubiquity - it was Google's massive resources. The Old Reader was one of many alternatives that readers fled to in advance of Reader's imminent collapse, and its users swelled by over 1000 percent in just a week. Now, after having swelled from 10 thousand users to over 400 thousand, the developers are saying that enough is enough. They currently plan to re-launch The Old Reader as a private service and only invite back those who joined before the flood, but they're still open to alternatives that would ensure continued public access.

Panasonic Launches A New Cordless Phone That Looks Like A Smartphone, Acts Like A Smartphone, But Isn't A Smartphone

Panasonic's KX-PRX120, besides having a sexy name, is quite the handset. It runs Ice Cream Sandwich, has access to the Play Store, and sports a 3.5 inch touch-screen that would not look out on place on display next to any other budget smartphone. The thing is, buyers won't want to tote it around town. This digital cordless phone is too timid for that lifestyle and works best within the confines of its own home.
