Nike's SNKRS Steps Into The Play Store For The Sole Purpose Of Feeding Your Sneaker Addiction

Sneaker addiction is serious business. My current collection stands at about 20 pairs, but they're all regularly designed and priced shoes — nothing fancy. And I know how hardcore some people can get about their sneakers, but I had no idea it could go so far as to cost them hundreds or thousands of dollars for a pair of shoes until I heard NPR's Planet Money What The LeBron episode. Well, Nike lovers who use Android devices need not worry about feeding their addiction anymore, just about financially funding it.

SNKRS is Nike's app for the sneaker lovers, featuring classic and new releases, their story and advantages, some exclusive content, with a customized feed for your preferred franchises and notifications for upcoming designs.

BubbleUPnP 2.6 Supports Google Cast On Amazon Fire Tablets And Other Devices Without Play Services

Sticking a Chromecast dongle is one of the cheapest ways to teach a dumb TV how to stream your favorite content. The downside is that Google's little media stick is heavily tied into the company's ecosystem. If your Android device lacks Google Play Services, you're not casting.

Here in the States, only a minority of Android devices have this issue. The majority of them are Amazon Fire tablets, with a few belonging to folks who either try to avoid or can't install Google Play Services for one reason or another. Then there are all those Chinese phones and tablets that get apps from alternative app stores.

Play Movies & TV v3.11 Tells Us How Bundles Will Work With The Family Library [APK Teardown]

The Play Books update from a couple of days ago turned up the first sign of life for the Family Library we've seen since mid-November. At the time, I made a quick prediction that matching strings would pop up fairly soon in Google's other content apps, and Play Movies & TV is the first to follow through. But this wasn't just a mirror image of the same strings, there's actually a bit of new information regarding movies sold as a bundle and seasons of television shows.

In case anybody is curious, this update doesn't have anything in the way of notable new features.

Google Messenger v1.7 Adds A Wear App That Won't Work Until Wear Gets Marshmallow [APK Teardown]

It has been a little while since we've seen an update to Messenger, so something potentially big was expected from this release. Version 1.7 doesn't seem to bring any visible changes, but like a sugary cereal box, there is a cool toy hidden inside. Messenger will have its own Android Wear app, just like Keep, Play Music, and a few others. But in a quirky twist, this mini app can't be installed quite yet, not until your Wear watch receives an update to Marshmallow.
