Glass Gets Update To XE12 With Hangouts Glassware, Official Wink Support, And More

Glass has just gotten a nice update to XE12, which besides foretelling the long-awaited iOS app, brings with it new Glassware, gestures, and questions.

Perhaps most important, the update introduces new glassware for Hangouts. Not being able to interact with the service by sending and receiving messages has been an elephant in the room for Glass from the beginning, so it's great to see that compatibility has finally arrived. The glassware will also take over Glass' video call capabilities, and allow users to send photos too.

Evernote Update Introduces Inline Attachment Support For Files And Pictures, Lets Business Subscribers View A List Of All Notes

Evernote has been around the block for years now, and it's one of the first recommendations you're likely to hear when searching for a solid note-taking app. The latest update doesn't revamp things, but it adds the ability for users to take images and files they would have previously attached to a note and inject them directly into its body instead. The functionality is accessible right from the action bar, and you're free to add multiple images one after the other.

Dropbox v2.3.12 Adds Ability To Invite Contacts To Shared Folders, Manage Sharing Settings, Go Pro Via In-App Purchase, And More

Dropbox gives every user 2GB of free space, but with all of us able to get up to 16GB through referrals and additional space just by activating certain devices, enticing users to go pro can be easier said than done. So the company has been adding in improvements to make the process largely painless. The last update made it possible to hand over your money by taking a snapshot of your credit card that could be used to auto-fill the requisite information.

Google Calendar Update v201308023 Streamlines Replying To Event Invitations From Within Gmail [APK Download]

Google Calendar has been updated recently, but a quick glance at the change log only finds "Bug fixes and performance improvements." What actually happened? Not much, but what's there is a doozy - replying to calendar events from within Gmail should now be a much less tedious experience.

What's New?

Now when you press Yes, Maybe, or No in an email invite, you will get a toast notification confirming your response.

Greenify Updated With KitKat ART Crash Fix, New Setup Guide For Experimental Features, And More

Greenify is an app that can speed up devices by hibernating specific apps when they're not running in the foreground, limiting how many background apps may potentially sip away at your battery life. ART, short for Android Runtime, handles app execution in a way that can be significantly peppier than Dalvik. Together, the two can breathe new life in a rooted device, and this combination is now more stable thanks to the latest version of Greenify, which adds ART compatibility.

MX Player Updated To Work With Android 4.4.1 And 4.4.2

MX Player, one of the most popular video players on the Play Store (and my personal player of choice as of recent), hasn't worked since Android 4.4.1's release. Those who immediately upgraded to 4.4.1 lost access to MX Player and were instead greeted with the following popup:

Annoying, isn't it, especially since the check is implemented from within the app itself rather than by using the maxSdkVersion parameter of the app's manifest?

What's Really New In Android 4.4.1 And 4.4.2

Have issues with the Nexus 5 or Android 4.4 KitKat (we know you do)? Well, Google has iterated its way out of many of those issues while also polishing a few other things, rolling out Android 4.4.2 recently. We had actually been working on What's Really New in Android 4.4.1, but with the update to 4.4.2 close on its heels, we'll be discussing changes from both updates.

The hallmark of the 4.4.1 update, as described by Google, is camera enhancement for the Nexus 5.

Motorola Touchless Control v4.1 Doesn't Need To Be Unlocked For Voice Commands, Can Listen For Your PIN, And More

A big update is rolling out for Motorola's Touchless Control app that should alleviate some of the frustrations users have had with its functionality. Primarily, voice commands no longer require you to unlock your phone first in order to work. Yet for safety reasons, emails, texts, contacts, and other private information remain protected behind a lock screen. Speaking of which, users can now unlock their Moto X by saying their PIN out loud (behavior, while cool, I would be very hesitant to recommend).

Skype 4.5 Introduces A Floating Picture-In-Picture View For Android Tablets And Other Enhancements

It's 2013, and chances are that someone has asked you to make a Skype video chat at some point or another. This isn't too all-consuming on PCs, where a user can fire up their webcam and tuck the Skype client away in the corner. Anyone using an Android device, on the other hand, has had to devote the entire screen to the conversation. But thanks to the latest Skype update, many of us will be freed from the burden of giving a video chat our undivided attention, as we will now have the ability to tuck the entire session away into the corner.

Verizon's Galaxy S 4 Mini Gets Some Galaxy Gear Love, OTA Rolling Out Soon

The list of devices that offer support for Samsung's first smartwatch is constantly growing, and today Verizon's Galaxy S 4 Mini gets to join that elite crew. The support docs just updated with details of the OTA, which highlights the Gear's potential usefulness.

Gear support isn't all you'll find in this update, either. It also brings about some new bloatware (imagine that), like Verizon's MyInfoZone Widget, VMware, and Verizon Cloud. Exciting stuff.
