As some readers might recall, there were a couple of fairly unusual, and very time-consuming teardown posts last week. In the final dash to finish them up, a few app updates were sidelined until they could be checked more thoroughly. Most of them have turned out to be bug fixes or have only small changes that don't really call for attention. The update to Google's micro-community app Spaces isn't very significant either, but it does resolve one of the most common complaints in the app since its release: it's now possible to save images posted to a space.

The third developer preview of Android N is now in the wild, and there are lots of interesting tweaks to see. Just for fun, Google threw in four new wallpapers along with the standard pink sky image that came with the last two. We've got them all ready for download below. Read More
When you need to find an image, you probably head straight to Google image search. And if you need to find that image again... you probably do the search again. Well, maybe not anymore. Google has added the ability to "star" images and organize them for easy access later. Read More
It has become accepted fact that Imgur is the best way to host images on the internet. Stop it with that Photobucket nonsense already. The official Imgur Android app has existed for a while, but it wasn't an ideal experience. Now with today's v2.0 update, it should be much better.

We're serving some cool images right to your wrist in the form of Google Image searches on Android Wear. Want some? You'll need the latest Wear update (I don't recall this working before and neither does our tipster - correct us if we're wrong) and you should initiate an image search by asking Google to "show images of [subject]" or "show photos of [subject]."
Very inception. Much round. Wow.
What you'll get back is a series of thumbnail images displayed on your watch. Read More
Back when I was using CyanogenMod on my Galaxy S3 and when Google didn't have a decent Gallery alternative, QuickPic was my go-to replacement photo browser. It was fast at combing through thousands of images and had a clean and clear interface that made it easy to get to the photos you wanted to view. Even though I personally have less reasons to use QuickPic now, many users are still hooked on its lightness, speed, and simplicity. For those millions of QuickPic lovers, the app just pushed an update to v3.9 that brings some Material elements.
But don't get your hopes up just yet. Read More
