Nabi 2 Disney And Nickelodeon Editions Get Nabi OS 3.0 With KitKat Even Later Than The Original Nabi 2

When the Nabi 2 received an update to Nabi OS 3.0 last month, this bumped it up to KitKat a year and a half after Google unveiled that particular version of Android to the world. Now the Disney and Nickelodeon editions of the tablets have stumbled in to receive 4.4 even later.

Fortunately the youngsters these tablets are geared towards aren't likely to follow Android blogs religiously, foaming at the mouth for the latest mobile goodness.

Gameloft To Make Modern Combat 5 Free-To-Play In Next Update

Modern Combat 5's release was hardly unexpected. After all, it's a sequel in one of the most popular franchises on Google Play. Nevertheless, it was a surprise to see the Gameloft title launch without a single in-app purchase in sight. In exchange, the publisher priced it at $7. Reasonable.

Ryan put the game through its paces, and while it wasn't without its caveats, it easily provided enough content to justify the price tag.

GoneMAD Music Player Goes 2.0 With Material Design And Over 1,000 New Themes

The GoneMAD music player has recently (stop me if you've heard this one before) gone mad for material design in its big jump to version 2.0. The app isn't the glossiest or prettiest of the bunch, but it's a fresh upgrade that has spent the better part of a year in development.

The material theme provided out of the box is kind of basic, but the developers have seen fit to throw in over 1,000 themes to choose from.

March Madness will soon be upon us. The 2015 NCAA Division I men’s basketball tournament is set to start next week.

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.
