The Skype app has had its fair share of problems over the years, and today's update fixes one particularly annoying quirk. It's not all about fixing mistakes, though. The update adds some useful new stuff too.
Monument Valley is without a doubt one of the coolest and most innovative games to ever grace an Android device, and now there's an expansion with eight more levels to delight and entertain. The Forgotten Shores update is available in the Play Store after originally debuting in the Amazon Appstore on Friday. It's a $1.99 in-app purchase, but that seems perfectly reasonable.
It's not Google's job to account for all the quirks of custom ROMs, but there's been one pervasive bug that has driven some users up a wall in recent weeks.

Do you fret about vast government conspiracies, lizard people running the world, and the all-seeing eye of the NSA? Well, you might have a little problem with paranoia there, but you don't have to be paranoid to see the appeal of Telegram. This is a secure messaging app that has full end-to-end encryption, and with version 2.0, a new material design theme.
The Office mobile app just got an update, and for once it's bringing something you might care about. The latest update adds the Dropbox integration that was announced early this month. You can now open, edit, and save documents in Dropbox using the Office app.
We saw a leak recently that showed off a new version of Google's Android Wear companion app, and now here it is. The design is certainly more in-line with Android 5.0 aesthetics, but it's not quite material. Also, you'll only get the new UI on Lollipop.

It's update Wednesday, and you know what that means. Well, yeah... updates. I guess it's sort of in the name. But at any rate, lately that specifically means material themes are coming to all your favorite Google apps. Today the new version of Google Keyboard is available to all in the Play Store. Or rather, it will be soon. You don't have to wait for it to reach your account, though.
