YouTube Creator Studio v1.3 Adopts Material Design, Adds Stats For Traffic Sources [APK Download]

In just 3 weeks, we expect Google to officially announce a new subscription option that will allow users to enjoy YouTube completely ad-free. In the lead-up to this, both the web service and its Android apps have received a swarm of updates and features. In just the last month, there has been a revised web player, search for 360-degree videos, and some improvements to YouTube Kids (with more to come).

Google Play Books Hits Version 3.4.5 With New Translation Interface, A New Font, And Hints Of Google Drive Sync For Notes [APK Download]

Besides a dogfood version of Play Games, update Wednesday brought us a new version of Play Books - 3.4.5. The changes in this update aren't major (or even immediately apparent), but they are worth taking a quick look at.

First up, there's a brand new translation interface. Rather than a toolbar and sheet overlay, the new translate interface lives on a card, just like the existing notes and dictionary interfaces. Here's a quick before and after.

Next up, new changes to notes. The ability to take notes in a book was present in 3.3, but users could not do that in a free sample of a book.

Snapchat 9.7 Lets You Easily Share Snaps From Discover And Zoom Into Videos

Snapchat 9.7 is here, and it packs two new features. They don't fundamentally change the app. In fact, if you blink you might miss them.

The first item on the changelog deals with snaps highlighted in Discover. If you recall, this is the part of the app that shows content from the likes of CNN and National Geographic. You can now tap and hold on the center to share a clip with friends. Snapchat lets you add a caption, doodles, and filters before sending it off.

The second addition is the ability to zoom into video while you're recording.

AOSP Changelog Posted For The Nexus 9 Update From 5.0.1_r1 (LRX22C) To 5.0.2_r3 (LRX22L)

I'm sure everybody can agree, it makes almost no sense that the Nexus 9 is only now receiving a tiny maintenance update to 5.0.2 a couple of months after 5.1 came out. Nevertheless, that's how events are playing out, so we should at least know what's so special about this update. We've generated a changelog from AOSP, and honestly, there's not much to see.

Be aware, the Nexus 9 update goes from 5.0.1_r1 to 5.0.2_r3. However, since we've already seen the changelog for 5.0.1_r1 to 5.0.2_r1, we're keeping the previously seen changes in the old list, and producing a new one that includes only the commits that make up r1 to r3.

IFTTT Do Button, Camera, And Note Apps Gain New Docsend, Ecobee, Greewave Systems, And Wink Shortcuts Channels In Version 1.1

Not long ago each of the T's in IFTTT left IF behind and formed their own little Android apps that had nothing to do with the letter T: Do Button, Do Camera, and Do Note. Today the IFTTT team has pushed out an update for these three apps.

Version 1.1 provides each Do app with access to four new Channels. You can now interact with DocSendecobeeGreenwave Systems, and Wink Shortcuts when pressing a button, taking a picture, or creating a note.

Total Commander Gets Much Less Ugly (But Still Pretty Ugly) And Vaguely Material In Version 2.6

If you haven't heard, there's an Android version of the popular desktop file manager Total Commander. It has been around for years, and through all of that time, it hasn't been a particularly pretty piece of software. Okay, it started out somewhat fine by Gingerbread standards, but successive versions of Android have not been nice to it. If you go to the Play Store right now, here's one of the screenshots you will see.

Yup, that's some kind of Gingerbread-Ice-Cream-Sandwich-Holo-Frankenbaby.

Now things are starting to improve. Version 2.6 isn't exactly what we call pretty, nor does it hang out with anyone we'd consider all that attractive, but it's making an effort.
