Google+ v5.8 Declares Its Built-In Photos App Is Going Away, Directs Users To The New Photos App

The standalone Photos app was released to the public during last month's Google I/O conference, finally completing the separation with Google+ as rumors (and facts) had long suggested. While the new Photos app was widely accepted as an improvement in many ways, it also lacked many of the enhanced editing features that had made the old version so useful. Unfortunately, installing the standalone Photos app effectively hid access to the version built into Google+.

IFTTT updates DO come in sets these days. Though the developers separated DO Button, DO Camera, and DO Notes into individual apps, they tend to release new versions at around the same time so that none of them get jealous. Some of the latest changes are similar across the three DO apps, such as the inclusion of unlimited recipes. Other tweaks are unique. So let's pay attention to what the updates DO and see why each app is special in its own way.

Sonos Beta App Updated With Numerous Improvements For Spotify Premium Subscribers

Music will generally sound better coming through the Sonos speaker system in your home than your phone or computer, so it's a no brainer that Spotify subscribers want to stream albums this way. Fortunately new features have found their way into the beta version of the Android app that make this a better experience.

A number of these additions help you find new content. Spotify Premium subscribers can now start radio stations from any artist or track and get recommendations based on the time of day. The app will also do its part to help you discover newly released albums, and access to charts lets you see what music is trending in various parts of the world.

Simple Bank Updates Android App To Version 2.2 With A Few Material Touches And Other New Features

Simple is a bank from the future (or the past, I guess), one that lacks physical branches and expects you to handle all of your transactions over the web from a PC or mobile device. After quite a wait, the Portland-based company has pushed out an update to its Android app that comes with enough visual tweaks to make the experience look Lollipop-friendly.

The previous version—which was already clean and, dare I say, simple—looked like a KitKat holdover.

File Expert Goes Material And More In Update To Version 7.0

An app called File Expert is probably going to be an expert at managing files. One would hope, anyway, and in this case, one probably wouldn't be disappointed.

That's right, in version 7, File Expert goes material.

The user interface is now turquoise and white all over the place.

Addappt 2.0 Arrives With A Redesigned Interface, Smart Favorites, Full Group Support, And More

You can swap out pretty much all of the default apps on your phone for something else, including the one that manages your contacts. Addappt (yes, that's with one too many d's and p's) is an alternative that saves you the hassle of messaging all of your friends whenever your number changes or accidentally sending an email to an address that has been deleted. With this app, users automatically update one another whenever they make changes, so everyone is always current.

Version 2.0 has hit the Play Store, and it brings with it a number of changes. There's a new interface that, while not a fully material experience, looks more modern.

SoundCloud Introduces A Revamped Recording Experience And Redesigned Playback Widget In Latest Update

SoundCloud version 15.06.09 is now rolling out to devices, but its visual changes aren't immediately apparent. Here's where you need to look. When you go to record audio, you're in for a much whiter experience. And no, I'm not talking about anyone's lyrics.

Left: Old, Right: New

Rather than changing everything all at once, SoundCloud has introduced material elements bit by bit. The most pressing ones came at the beginning of this year, but the recording interface went untouched. Now it better fits in with the app's new current look and feel.

The same can be said for SoundCloud's playback widget.
