Inbox v1.9 Adds New Compose And Reminder Home Screen Shortcuts [APK Download]

The updates came rolling in quickly this morning. Among them was a fresh bump to Google's Inbox app – the email app for people without time for email. This release was a little light on truly new features as far as the main interface is concerned, but it finally brought a feature to light we've been expecting for a few months: home screen shortcuts to jump straight into writing a new email or scheduling reminders.

PBS Video For Android Can Now Stream Full Episodes To Your Chromecast

The PBS Video Android app has gained support for a cheap little media stick that frees shows from mobile devices and sticks them on something bigger. This way users can go back to viewing shows like Frontline, NOVA, and PBS NewsHour the way they've been watching them for decades.

Chromecast support works the way you're likely already familiar with. You open up the app, you locate the icon in the top-right corner, you select the dongle you want to cast to, and you watch your show.

Maps v9.10 Adds New Photo Gallery Viewer, Car Rental Bookings, And More [APK Download]

A new update to Google's Maps application is out, but the wait for offline navigation must go on. This is a relatively minor version bump, so we're not going to see the big features mentioned at I/O, but that doesn't mean there aren't still some pretty good things in this release. We now get to enjoy a new photo gallery view, car rental bookings will be shown, and there are a few pleasant improvements in Settings.

WordPress 4.1 Ditches The Traditional Side Navigation Menu For A Tabbed Action Bar

WordPress went material in version 3.5. Now in 4.1, the app has undergone what may be an even larger design change. Say goodbye to the navigation menu you're used to sliding out from the side of the screen. Now everything you need is tucked away inside four tabs spread along the action bar at the top.

The first tab, which also serves as the landing screen, provides just about everything you'd expect in the side menu.

Digitally Imported Radio (DI.FM) Gets A Huge Visual Redesign In Version 2.0

Digitally Imported Radio (or DI.FM, if you're accustomed to streaming through a browser) isn't a service we get to write about often. That's not because it's bad. It's just that the app lets you listen to over 80 human-curated channels of electronic music, and there's not much else to see.

But for the big leap to version 2.0, AudioAddict has given the Android version a complete visual overhaul. Digitally Imported Radio now looks less like something from the ICS days and more like old Pandora.

Foursquare Gets Android Wear App In Latest Update, Now Provides Personalized Recommendations From A Tiny Screen

Last year the company that made it a thing to "check in" somewhere shed the social network aspect of its service and pushed out a complete redesign. The new Foursquare was less interested in where you've been and more concerned about where you're going. The experience now centers around personalized recommendations, and the latest version sticks those suggestions directly on your wrist.

The Foursquare Android Wear app lets you search for interesting places in your area and get information on your smartwatch. There isn't much screen real estate to work with, but you can see a restaurant's location on a map, how far it is from your location, whether it's pricey, and its overall rating.
