MediaFire 2.0 Update Gives The Cloud Storage App A Cleaner UI, Automatic Backup, And More

Today the MediaFire Android app is turning 2.0, an age that resembles 20 but generally brings along more change in the life of an app. Software seemingly goes through digital puberty overnight and finds itself tucked inside a new body that looks different and similar at the same time.

CBS Sports Updated To Version 7 With A UI That May Just Be The Cleanest Of Any Android Sports App

Sports apps typically aren't the most attractive pieces of software tucked away on Google Play, because let's be honest, why bother? Your average user will just be happy to pull up scores and stats in the palm of their hand, and whether the app adheres to Android's design guidelines occupies about as much thought as that thing they're supposed to be doing instead of watching the game.

Leaked Screenshots Suggest Samsung May Be Considering A Flatter, Artsier TouchWiz UI

Facebook 4.0 Test Build Reveals Drastically Revamped Design [APK Download]

We've received an early look at an upcoming version of Facebook that introduces a brand new, flat UI. This is a change that competing social networks like Twitter and Pinterest made a long time ago, and given the direction Android, iOS, and Windows Phone have all moved in, it only makes sense. When considering Facebook Messenger's recent redesign, it's even less surprising. Yet this is pre-release software, so there's a decent chance none of these changes will make it into the stable version.
