Any.do 3.0 Provides New Grid View With Zoomable Lists, Android Tablet Support, And More

Any.do is a to-do list manager, so it makes sense that version 3.0 places an emphasis on managing to-dos. The team has added a grid view that gives you a broader look at all of your lists at once. Picture one for shopping, another for work, and a third for household chores. When you're ready for specifics, you can tap to zoom in and see the items or tasks under each one.

There are now three views available to sort each of these lists: time, list, and priority. The first one can be useful for tracking a project over several weeks, while the latter comes in when you have something important to get done right away.

In Docs, an option to select line spacing has appeared in the "Paragraph" section of the app. Users can select single spacing, double spacing, or a couple of decimals in between (1.15 and 1.50). You switch between them using arrows, and since you can't manually input a number, you're limited to the options present.

MX Player Updated With Android 5.0 Support, File Viewing Options, Easy Audio Track Disabling, And More

MX Player is now ready for Android Lollipop. No, it's not any prettier than it was before. There's no Material Design to drool over, no bright colors, nor a floating action button to make us feel like we're living at the end of 2014. This video player is largely the same app as before. Its developer has just removed the restriction that prevented it from running on 5.0 devices. Now people who rely on MX Player don't have to do without when upgrading to Lollipop.

While this isn't the big redesign you may have hoped for, there are some new features to take in.

Latest BBM Update Lets You Retract Messages, Delete Chat Content After A Set Time, And More

There's a certain permanence to most instant messaging apps. The second you hit send, that's it, the message is out of your hands. You better hope you sent it to the right contact, fixed those embarrassing typos, or spelled their name correctly. Unless you're using the latest version of BBM, in which case you can call take backsies.

Now when you send a message by mistake, you can simply tap the retract button. This works both before or after the text has been viewed, so even if you weren't able to prevent your ex from seeing that kissy face emoticon you intended for your new significant other, you can at least strike it from the record.

First Google Admin Update Since 2013 Brings Shared PIN Support And Easy Account Switching [APK Download]

Google Admin has recently received its first update of the year. If you aren't the administrator for a Google for Work account, then there's nothing here for you to sink your teeth into. But there are a few new features here for people on the management side of things.

What's new

Administrators can now implement a 4-digit PIN that works on numerous devices. This way you could have all of the spare tablets in a college IT department, for example, secured with the same code that gets changed every week or so. To turn this feature on, look for the "Ask for pin" option under Settings.

Any.do Hits Version 2.0, Now Offers Premium Accounts For $5 A Month Or $45 A Year

It's challenging to differentiate yourself in a field crowded by the likes of Evernote, Todoist, and Wunderlist. All of these services can manage your lists just fine, and they can each sync across whichever devices you want them to. So what does Any.do have up its sleeve for its big 2.0 release?

This time, it's all about collaboration, as the team has expanded on how Any.do users share tasks. They want the service to be the tool you and your significant other turn towards to manage your shopping lists and other tasks that require you to be on the same page. Likewise, the team sees its app as the best option for other teams to use to get work done and stay organized.

JuiceSSH 2.0 Update Brings Big UI Overhaul, Transparent System Bars, PIN Unlock, And More

JuiceSSH has hit the big 2.0, and to celebrate this occasion, developer Sonelli packed in a few extra changes and perks to get this party pumpin' (okay, that's probably not exactly the way the developmental process progressed, but this version of events just sounds juicier). This release brings in a vibrant UI redesign, one that gives terminal users transparent system bars. Folks can switch the color of this new layout by changing the theme, which they no longer need to be a pro user to do.

Functionally, the biggest change is perhaps the ability to use a PIN to protect your host list and SSH sessions instead of a lengthy password.
