'SwiftKey Hub' Content And Settings Menu Debuts In 5.3 Beta Update

SwiftKey has announced beta version 5.3 of its third-party keyboard, and this time the highlight feature concerns a new menu for accessing content and settings. It's called the SwiftKey Hub.

This little menu appears to the left of the prediction bar. It serves as a quick way to access the app's most popular settings. This is a change from having to activate a separate key's secondary function, as SwiftKey (using the 123 key) and many other alternative keyboards have done.

Ready Contact List Goes Material In Big 2.0 Release, Gains Third-Party App Integration, Call Bubbles, And More

Ready is a third-party dialer that, from the beginning, has prided itself on being prettier than the one you're currently using. And for people where looks aren't enough, it consolidates various aspects of mobile communication into one place in order to improve the experience of actually making calls. You can know when you last talked, what was said in your last text, and when the next meeting is scheduled for all as you dial a person's number.

Regal Cinemas Shows How An Android App Is Done Right With A Material Design Upgrade

Most Android apps from large corporations don't really consider the design guidelines worth following - hell, a lot of them are carbon copies of the counterpart iPhone app. (From three years ago.) The app from movie theater chain Regal Cinemas is refreshingly different: even before the latest update it followed Holo guidelines pretty well throughout the interface. The latest update, published in the Play Store yesterday, brings it up to Material Design.

Moovit 4.0 Update Adds A New Interface And New Features, But Some Users Aren't Happy

Google Maps offers some stellar features, but that doesn't mean that it can't be improved upon, particularly in the area of public transit. Moovit is a navigation app that specializes in bus and train routes, and the latest version completely overhauls the interface. In particular it's much easier to assign a destination location from the main screen: instead of manually entering an address via text, just slide the map around until the indicator is where you want to go.

Plex is one of the easiest ways to view local video on your mobile devices, and its developers have been gradually cranking out updates as of late that improve the Android experience. Version 4.2 doesn't overhaul the experience, but it does introduce a number of tweaks to the user interface.

Any.do 3.0 Provides New Grid View With Zoomable Lists, Android Tablet Support, And More

Any.do is a to-do list manager, so it makes sense that version 3.0 places an emphasis on managing to-dos. The team has added a grid view that gives you a broader look at all of your lists at once. Picture one for shopping, another for work, and a third for household chores. When you're ready for specifics, you can tap to zoom in and see the items or tasks under each one.

Opera Mini Browser v8 Gets A Big Visual Overhaul, Private Tabs, High DPI Support, And More

Opera Mini has attracted millions of users for all sorts of reasons, but its appearance hasn't particularly been one of them. Frankly, the app has felt dated for years.

With version 8, that changes. The zippy little browser now has a look and feel that looks more at home on Android (which we've been able to experience for a few months now in beta). It's not #materialyolo, but it doesn't clash nearly as much with Lollipop as the prior release.

Amazon Kindle Android App v4.11 Adds Book Introductions, Popular Highlights, Help For Difficult Words, And More

Amazon knows its offers more e-books than the other guys, and when it comes to producing a solid reader, that matters a great deal. So what else does the company have left to do for each of its updates?

For version 4.11, it is trying to improve the experience for people who are picking up (metaphorically speaking) a particular book for the first time and those who may have trouble with larger words.

Google Calendar 5.2 Brings Back The Month View On Phones [APK Download]

Google Calendar is meant to be precisely that, a calendar. The app serves as the default way you keep up with events and appointments on a stock Android device. As a result, some users were a little miffed when the big 5.0 redesign stripped the app of its ability to display a month's worth of events on a phone's screen at once.

With 5.2, that changes.

What's New?

5.1 could show a single day, three days, or a week.
