Tapatalk, Android’s most popular app for browsing forums, recently received another refresh to its interface with little initial fanfare. It was not a milestone update and the overall look of the app was not drastically changed from its past few updates. The way you navigate within a site, though, has been altered significantly. Judging by Play Store reviews, Tapatalk’s feedback board, and our tips inbox, users are not fans of this update whatsoever.

Usually, when an app gets a significant update with a new UI and whatnot, it does not come with a permanent reduction in price. Mizuu is a special case, apparently. This media management app has gotten a bump up to v3.0 with a UI revamp and some indexing tweaks, but it's no longer a paid app--the developer has decided to make it completely free.

So you need to get some files from your phone into the cloud? FolderSync is one of the most popular ways to do it. This app gives you very fine control over what files go where and when, and today it's getting a sizable update to v2.7 with a bit of a UI makeover and some new features.

Solid Explorer has long been one of the most popular file managers on Android because of its slick dual-pane UI and extensive feature list. However, the UI isn't what you'd call intuitive. A big material redesign is in the works, and you can test it right now by joining the Google+ community.

Perhaps you're wondering what this Kodi thing is... well, it's XBMC. They just don't call it XBMC anymore. The latest version of this all-in-wonder media player and content organizer has been released, and you can get it on your Android device right now for zero dollars.

Dolphin, one of Android’s most popular third-party browsers, continues refining its Lollipop experience after initially rolling out a compatible release a month ago. Now, with Flash support, Android 5.0 devices should have feature parity with KitKat and earlier systems. In addition to the Flash upgrade, Dolphin has a grab-bag of enhancements that apply to all 4.x users.

The most fun new doodads are some Christmas-oriented themes.

Maybe not the most integral feature, but their themes are fairly well-done.

You need never be plagued by a haunting tune you just can't identify in this modern world. There are plenty of apps that can ID a song in mere seconds, but the new version of SoundHound adds a cool trick. It can add songs you ID to a Spotify playlist for easy listening. This functionality was debuted a few months ago for Rdio, but I'd wager there are more Spotify users out there.

In its latest update, Lyft has finally added the capability to split fares among passengers. This is a pretty important feature and one that puts it on par with top competitor Uber, which has had fare splitting for well over a year. For those who travel in groups, this makes Lyft a more viable option.

Duolingo, perhaps the best app for language learning on the Android platform, has added yet another option for prospective students: the native tongue of PewDiePie, Swedish. With the latest update, Swedish joins recent additions Irish and Dutch along with Spanish, French, German, Portuguese, Italian, and Danish as options for English speakers. For now, Swedish is in a beta stage, according to Duolingo's website. You can still use it as normal though, they just don't promise absolute stability.

In a major update, gReader has given itself a brand new look in addition to support for Lollipop devices. Unlike many recent app updates that have claimed to add Material Design, gReader is not exaggerating in their claim; it looks very good. And, true to form, gReader has preserved the ability to customize its look with themes, so you can still make it your own.

gReader’s 3.x versions already had a fairly modern look, so it wasn’t a great leap to conform to Material Design guidelines.
