Google Adds 30 Historical And Touristic Jordanian Sites To Street View, Petra And Jerash Included

I have fond memories of Jordan. The hot temperatures and the desert environment didn't stop me from enjoying my 4-day tour of the country where I walked around the city of Petra and took a donkey ride back to the entrance because my feet hurt too much, went on a 4X4 drive around Wadi Rum and got sand everywhere in my clothes and shoes, floated in the Dead Sea and panicked when I figured that I couldn't swim back to shore but had to awkwardly paddle my body, got lost between the hookah café on the Aqaba beach, watched a Roman gladiator fight reenactment in Jerash, and visited what is believed to be the Baptismal Site of Jesus Christ.

Twitch v4.5.1 Adds Support For Android TV [APK Download]

This whole time, game streaming service Twitch hasn't supported Android TV. That strikes me as pretty weird, but everything is cool now that v4.5.1 is rolling out (the standard app is up to v4.6.x). This version adds Android TV support, and we've got the APK below in case you don't see it in the Play Store yet.

Opera Max Starts Compressing Data On Three More Music Services: YouTube Music, Saavn, And Gaana

Whether you're on a small data plan, in an area with limited internet speeds, or your unlimited data plan has switched you to slow speeds after you ran through your fair use allotment, there's always a need for an app that can compress your transfers and save you time and data while you continue to use your device as usual. Opera Max is that app, it goes through all of your traffic and tries to save as many bytes as possible. And now it's getting even more effective at that.

Last month, Opera Max added music compression on a couple of services: Pandora, Slacker, and SoundCloud.

Oftentimes, this is simply because many phones have similarly lamentable audio production on these speakers, with varying degrees of maximum loudness. But as the smartphone has evolved, so too have the speakers inside of them, and a class of phones that quite specifically cater to providing a better speaker experience have emerged.

Perhaps most famously, HTC's BoomSound attempted to brand the concept of dual front-facing speakers - the feature was an absolute cornerstone of the One M7, M8, and M9, and made the devices stand out compared to rivals from the likes of LG and Samsung.

EverythingMe Launcher Will Shut Down And Leave The Play Store Due To A Terminal Lack Of Money

It's a bad weekend for indie apps and services. After the PasswordBox team announced that its well-liked product would be folded into Intel's alternative, now a unique Android homescreen replacement is also going the way of the dodo. After amassing 15 million downloads since its debut early last year, EverythingMe will soon be shutting down and no longer available on the Play Store. As Douglas Adams said (and the company quoted on its farewell blog post), so long, and thanks for all the fish.
