ESPN 4.2 Gets Bigger To Better Work With Tablets, Still Runs Light On Its Feet

The official ESPN app (formerly known as SportsCenter, or was that Score Center?) looks largely the same following the update to version 4.2 as it did in 4.1, unless you're running it on an Android tablet. There the experience has expanded to present you with more information on-screen. Want to see the latest sports gossip news? You got it. Want to see scores at the same time? Sure. Information on your favorite teams is tucked away along the top-right corner of the action bar.

Waze 3.9.4 Brings Traffic Bar, Better U-Turns, Speed Improvements, And More [APK Download]

Waze has bumped its Android app up to version 3.9.4, and it's asserting that the app is faster. How much faster? 85%. That's an oddly specific number, but whatever. All that matters is that users should be able to pull up locations and routes more quickly.

The big feature in this release is the new Traffic Bar. This little meter gives you an estimate of how long you will be stuck in a traffic jam.

Chrome For Android Updated To Version 41 With Pull-To-Refresh Functionality [APK Download]

There's a new version of Chrome Beta available in the Play Store, though it doesn't seem to add a whole lot to the app itself. That means that the features from the last beta graduate to the stable build, which you can get in the Play Store (if you're patient) or at the APK Mirror link below (if you're not). The biggest user-facing change is the ability to "pull" down from the top of a page to refresh it, a gesture already seen in various other Google apps like Gmail.

DirecTV's job used to be making sure that when you turn on your TV, there's something there to watch. Then these fancy mobile devices came around, and now the company is tasked with putting shows on those as well. Kids don't stare at big screens anymore, I'm told. Everything looks best crammed somewhere between 4.5 to 10.1 inches.

[Android 5.1 Feature Spotlight] Android Now Recognizes Wi-Fi Connections With No Internet Access And Won't Automatically Reconnect To Them

You're sitting in a bar, spending $30 on beer and nachos because you're too cheap to spend $100 on a month's worth of cable for Monday Night Football. Despite the fact that the place is tiny and the walls are so thin that you can hear drivers in the street swearing at each other, it's somehow also a black hole for cellular service. So you ask the bartender for the Wi-Fi password, then ask him for the right password, then finally get connected...
