Play Store May Be Redirecting Some Search Terms To The Predefined Categories

The user experience on Android is never standing still, which is no more evident than in the Play Store itself. It seems Google may be trying out a new behavior for search queries that match the names of the Play Store's predefined categories. Instead of presenting a list of apps, searching for a term like 'action' or 'puzzle' can bring up structured lists like those that would appear in the category itself.

Intuit Releases A New TurboTax App With Modern Looks To Help You Manage This Year's Taxes

Intuit has released a new version of TurboTax into the Play Store that shouldn't look jarring on your Lollipop-powered device.

The Google Play Store's App Page Layout On The Web Has Changed For Some Users

If you've noticed a few changes around the Play Store on a desktop browser, you're not alone. Some Chrome users spotted a new layout for app pages on Google Play starting this yesterday evening. It isn't universal, and it seems to be a minority for the moment - only one Android Police staff member saw the updated layout, and even then, only in the latest beta for Chrome (40.0.2214.45).

The change modifies the full-width view that we've grown used to into a more narrow, three-column view.

Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars Expands Into The Play Store, Finally Wants To Call Android Home

Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, perhaps surprisingly, began its life on a Nintendo platform: the original DS. Over half a year later, a version made its way over to the PlayStation Portable, and an iOS version appeared only a couple of months after that. Since then, nearly five years have passed, and Rockstar is finally sharing the game with the millions of Android users roaming the globe. The title can now be found in the Play Store.
