[Update: APK Download] Google Introduces The New And Improved Wallet 2.0 App In The US, Supports All Android Phones Running 2.3 And Above

Google Wallet got off to a rough start. Carriers didn't want to support it for various reasons, it only worked on certain devices ... it was really just a big mess. As time passed, it didn't get much better, either. Today, however, Google is looking to change everything when it comes to Wallet. It's rolling out v2.0 of the app that brings a slew of new features, as well as making it available for basically all Android phones running Gingerbread (2.3) and higher.

DROID DNA Sense 5 And Android 4.2 Update Details Land On Verizon's Site, Highlight BlinkFeed, Quick Settings, And More

Verizon hasn't explicitly announced an Android 4.2 update for the DROID DNA, but in a way, they have. The company has updated the support page for the nearly one-year-old handset with an in-depth look at what new goodies to expect. It's quite the ugly page, so we'll save you the effort of perusing it for yourself by providing the gist right here. After this update, DROID DNA owners will have an HTC Sense 5 experience that approaches that of the HTC One. The handset will get updated calendar, dialer, gallery, and contacts apps, along with the love-it-or-hate-it addition of BlinkFeed.

[What's Really New/APK Teardown] Google Maps Update 7.2 Rolling Out: Google Now-Style Navigation Card, Hotel Rates, HTC Contacts Bug Fix, And More [APK Download]

Earlier today, Google started slowly rolling out an update to Maps with version 7.2. This is a point release, up from 7.1, so I expected more than just minor changes. While not as big as the quiet Drive update yesterday, Maps 7.2 brings a few notable changes to the table that Google has not yet (or won't ever) itemized in the changelog. Upon getting my hands on the APK, which you can find at the bottom of this post, I hopped onto the teardown couch and dug in.

What's new?

Route preview and one-tap Start navigation button

One of the most notable changes is the Google Now-style route preview for the first of three possible navigation route cards.

[What's Really New] Big Google Drive Update Rolling Out - UI Changes, Swipe-Down-To-Refresh, Bottom Action Bar, And More [APK Download]

Google started a staged update to Google Drive earlier today with version 1.2.352.9 and a completely useless changelog that just said "Bug fixes and other improvements."

As it turns out, these fixes and improvements are actually kind of significant compared to the previous version 1.2.228.32. In this post, I will show you what's really new in Drive v1.2.352.9.

Since the rollout is staged, some of you may not see the update in the Play Store yet - in that case, you can find manual APK download links at the bottom of this post.

What's new?

Holo Dark UI is now Holo Light

The new Drive is using Holo Light instead of Holo Dark and looks a lot less gloomy.

The 2013 LTE Nexus 7 That You Can Barely Find Anywhere Gets Updated To Build Number JLS36C

The LTE version of the new Nexus 7 still isn't that easy to get your hands on, but a new update has rolled out for those of you who happen to own this slightly more expensive version of what is already a solid tablet. Like any new device, the Nexus 7 comes with a handful of bugs. Build number JLS36C doesn't do much, but it changes a bunch of system files, patching both the radio and the recovery.

N7

You can wait for the OTA to roll out to your device, or you could even start repetitively tapping the update button under system settings, but either way, it might take a while to show up.

[IFA 2013] HDMI 2.0 Specification Revealed: 18Gbps Data Bandwidth, 4K Resolution At 60Hz, Backwards-Compatible With Category 2 Cables

The phones and tablets are about to start falling from the sky like rain at the IFA trade show in Berlin, but before we get to the juicy mobile hardware let's talk about something really exciting: cables. It's finally time for HDMI to get a major revision after the 1.4 spec from 2009, and the 2.0 release of HDMI adds some necessary enhancements to its bullet list.

Most notable among the new additions is support for 4K or "UltraHD" at up to 60hz. The 1.4 spec supported 4K, but only up to 24hz, which is the standard for movies and television; 60hz should be much more comfy for extended game sessions.

Foursquare Is Getting Smarter Every Day, Now Adding Background Notifications

If you told me that you'd never heard of Foursquare, I'd call you a liar. We've all see the cross-posts from Foursquare on Twitter and Facebook. I'd find it hard to believe that you had gone your entire life without seeing Foursquare notifications, but if you told me you didn't know what Foursquare was for, that I could believe. Foursquare, at its heart, is a fairly straightforward location-based game. You check into whatever establishment you're at, you collect points, and you lord your obvious superiority over your friends and loved ones. You can leave tips about businesses on their foursquare pages, get discounts at stores and coffee shops, and see if any of your friends are nearby.

Firmware Update 10.3.1.C.0.136 Bumps The Xperia Tablet Z WiFi Up To Android 4.2.2, Includes Support For Multiple Users, 64GB SD Cards, And More

Xperia Tablet Z WiFi owners, the time has come for you to make the jump to Android 4.2.2. The latest firmware update, version 10.3.1.C.0.136, updates the six-month tablet to the next version of Jelly Bean and brings with it a slew of features worth salivating over, such as support for 64GB SD cards, and some that may be more subjective, such as the transition from a tablet UI to a phone UI. This means that the soft buttons (back, home, and recent) are now centered at the bottom of the screen, and the notification bar has been shifted to the top.

Official Twitter App Updated To v4.1.6, Brings Improved Conversations, New Notification Settings, Optimizations For Low-End Android Phones

While Twitter may be doing certain things to kill third party applications (or at least slow them down), it's also making strides towards bettering its own application, too. Take today's update, for example – it brings a few goodies to the table, most notably an improved conversation experience.

If you're familiar with Twitter in the slightest, then you're probably pretty used to seeing a tweet with an @mention and getting curious as to what the involved parties are discussing. Don't lie, either – you know that you've spent time hunting down all the tweets in the series to satisfy your own nosiness.

Pushover Gets A Facelift For Version 2.0, Now Has A Slide-Out Menu, Swipe To Delete, Notification Dismissal Sync, And More

Despite its name, Pushover is no, well, pushover. This easy-to-use push notification service allows web services, scripts, and a bunch of other apps to send alerts to your mobile device, and when combined with a site like IFTTT, it can bend the internet to your will. Now, a year and a half after the app's debut, the Pushover team has updated the app to version 2.0, giving the app a new look and filling it up with new functionality.
