[Update: Changelog Posted] Maps 9.6 Update Gives Users More Control Over Voice Output And Dresses Up Zagat Reviews [APK Download]

Update Wednesday has come and gone, but most of what we've seen can be described as bug fixes and relatively minor adjustments – not that we aren't happy with improvements of any kind. Google just set loose Maps 9.6, and like most of the other apps, the changes are mostly about fine-tuning. This version slightly improves the visibility of Zagat reviews and adds an option to determine if the voice should play over speakers or Bluetooth during turn-by-navigation.

SiriusXM Gets A New Look For Version 3.0, But Users Say The Update Is Full Of Bugs

The makers of SiriusXM's Android client, an Internet version of the notable satellite radio streams, seem to take positive delight in ignoring Android design guidelines. Before today, the app looked like a lazy port of the iOS version... and the iOS version wasn't exactly a looker to start with.

SiriusXM for Android, circa 2014. Or possibly RealPlayer for Windows Mobile, circa 2004. It's hard to tell.

The updated version of the app doesn't exactly look like Material Design, or even Holo (apparently said app developers aren't Android Police readers), but at least it looks like something designed this decade.

YouTube Updated To v10.10 With Option To Search For 4K Videos [APK Download]

A fresh update for YouTube began rolling out today, bumping the version number to 10.10. This appears to be a fairly minor release, as it only includes some visual tweaks and adds the new 4K video search filter. Still, it might appeal to anybody with a screen and hardware that supports super high-def video. There's a download link below if you're anxious to give it a try.

GoneMAD Music Player Goes 2.0 With Material Design And Over 1,000 New Themes

The GoneMAD music player has recently (stop me if you've heard this one before) gone mad for material design in its big jump to version 2.0. The app isn't the glossiest or prettiest of the bunch, but it's a fresh upgrade that has spent the better part of a year in development.

The material theme provided out of the box is kind of basic, but the developers have seen fit to throw in over 1,000 themes to choose from.

Dropbox App Adds A Built-In PDF Viewer And In-Document Searching For PDF, Word, And PowerPoint Files

Dropbox is one of those essential apps that goes on any new Android device I buy or test almost immediately. Today it's getting an update adding a couple of features that will make it considerably more useful for reading and searching documents. First of all, the Dropbox app for Android can now view Adobe PDF files natively. Since it seems like we're doomed to use this proprietary format until the heat death of the universe (or at least until Adobe starts charging by the page), it's a handy extra.

Official NCAA March Madness App Gets 2015 Schedule And A Material Redesign

March Madness will soon be upon us. The 2015 NCAA Division I men’s basketball tournament is set to start next week. If you've made the appropriate arrangements with your TV provider, you can watch every game on your Android phone or tablet (whichever one you feel most comfortable yelling at in public).

The NCAA March Madness app provides live access to 67 games spread across CBS, TBS, TNT, and truTV. CBS doesn't require a cable or satellite subscription, but the others do.

ESPN 4.2 Gets Bigger To Better Work With Tablets, Still Runs Light On Its Feet

The official ESPN app (formerly known as SportsCenter, or was that Score Center?) looks largely the same following the update to version 4.2 as it did in 4.1, unless you're running it on an Android tablet. There the experience has expanded to present you with more information on-screen. Want to see the latest sports gossip news? You got it. Want to see scores at the same time? Sure. Information on your favorite teams is tucked away along the top-right corner of the action bar.

Latest Play Music Update Extends Artwork And Navigation Menu Through Notification Bar, And More [APK Download]

A fresh release of Play Music is going out to devices, and it brings a bit more consistency to another one of Google's apps. Now the navigation menu that extends from the side of the screen will reach up through the notification bar.

That's not the only element of the interface that's reaching upwards. When you go to play a track, you will find that the album artwork extends to the top of the screen as well.

Waze 3.9.4 Brings Traffic Bar, Better U-Turns, Speed Improvements, And More [APK Download]

Waze has bumped its Android app up to version 3.9.4, and it's asserting that the app is faster. How much faster? 85%. That's an oddly specific number, but whatever. All that matters is that users should be able to pull up locations and routes more quickly.

The big feature in this release is the new Traffic Bar. This little meter gives you an estimate of how long you will be stuck in a traffic jam.

Chrome For Android Updated To Version 41 With Pull-To-Refresh Functionality [APK Download]

There's a new version of Chrome Beta available in the Play Store, though it doesn't seem to add a whole lot to the app itself. That means that the features from the last beta graduate to the stable build, which you can get in the Play Store (if you're patient) or at the APK Mirror link below (if you're not). The biggest user-facing change is the ability to "pull" down from the top of a page to refresh it, a gesture already seen in various other Google apps like Gmail.
