Google Camera v3.2 Prepares To Support Shooting In RAW+JPEG On Nexus Devices [APK Teardown]

Google's Camera app isn't the most advanced tool for taking photos. It completely avoids manual controls and generally lags behind OEMs for most major features. Where it's lacking in advanced features, the Camera app tries to make up for with a simple interface and clever techniques to intelligently deliver better photos without putting the burden on users. This means it works pretty well for simple point-and-shoot purposes, but skilled and professional photographers aren't likely to give it a second look. A teardown of a recent Camera update shows that Google is testing an option to save both RAW and JPEG files with each picture, a popular feature on many dedicated cameras and high-end smartphones.

Koush's Vysor Now Allows Sharing To Users Who Do Not Have Vysor Installed

Koush's Vysor is pretty cool: a way to see your Android screen on a computer, using a Chrome extension. This is great for using an Android app on your desktop PC, or for developers debugging apps. Previously, Vysor's 'Share' feature has worked between two people who have both had Vysor installed. Now, however, you can share with anyone, even if they do not have Vysor.

Simply press share on Vysor's control panel, and the link will be automatically copied to the computer's clipboard. All that's needed then is that link to be pasted to the intended recipient, who can then view the phone or tablet in Chrome or Firefox.

Google Releases A Google Now On Tap Ad That's Actually Good And Informative

Google Now on Tap was arguably the highlight feature of Android Marshmallow. With the press of a finger, your phone or tablet would attempt to predict what you wanted to do with information available on screen. That's the glowy, abstract description anyway. What does it actually do? Well this new ad recently published to Google's YouTube channel gives a pretty clear idea.

ES File Explorer Updated With Super-Shady 'Charging Boost' Adware

ES File Explorer has been on Android since time immemorial, but it has been getting a little bloated since being acquired a while back. The most recent update might be the last straw for many users.

Foobar2000 Arrives On Android, Direct From The Year 2010 Apparently

You may recall the popular desktop audio player foobar2000 was supposed to come to Android several years ago by way of a crowdfunding campaign. That didn't work out, but now the app has appeared in the Play Store anyway. I can confirm it exists and plays music, but it does look pretty rough.

Disney Releases Official Apps For The Shanghai And Hong Kong Disneyland Resorts

The only time I've been to Disneyland, it was lightly raining on a gloomy Paris day, but everything was made better when I saw the colorful castle from afar and spent the day giggling and hopping between attractions, playing with every toy I could see and buying a couple, eating a Mickey Mouse pancake, and then ending it by watching the parade and joining in the final dance. If the Winnie the Pooh photo waiting line was shorter and less filled with kids, it'd have been perfect. Oh, I forgot to say I was 24 by then. I'm a big kid inside, alright?
