Snapseed v2.5 Rolling Out With Horizontal Flip, Quickly Apply Last Edits, And More [Update: APK]

Google has continued improving Snapseed since it bought the app a while back, which is a refreshing departure from the usual way of things (looking at you Microsoft). Today, v2.5 of Snapseed is rolling out on Android and that other platform with a few notable changes. The official changelog isn't up yet, but the Snapseed G+ account has the details and a demo video.

ES File Explorer Update Removes The Adware Charging Screen

ES File Explorer has been going downhill for a while ever since it was bought out by a third-party. It's gotten more and more bloated, but the recent addition of a useless charging lock screen with ads was the last straw for many. We've since seen that same junk feature (a version of DU Battery Saver) worm its way into other apps, but at least the developers of ES have wised up and removed it.

YouTube's New Card-Style Video Options Menu Seems To Be Rolling Out Widely

Want to change the streaming quality of the YouTube video? Tap the overflow button in the top right corner. Options will appear in the middle of the video for Captions, Quality, Report, and Cardboard.

Except, maybe they won't. Months ago many people started seeing a card-style menu instead. Now judging from the onslaught of tips in our inbox, a lot more people are seeing them. Some of us are as well.

Lyft Announces Scheduled Rides, Soon Users Will Be Able To Plan Their Trips Ahead Of Time

Lyft, the definitely-not-a-taxi service that is not Uber, is adding a useful feature: scheduled rides. This means exactly what you think, giving the option to call for a, well, Lyft for some future time. With that said, you probably can't use scheduled rides just yet as it is currently being piloted in San Francisco.

Assuming Lyft does roll it out to their other markets this summer as they say they will in their announcement, there will be some guidelines. The main thing is you cannot schedule your ride more than 24 hours in advance.

You can imagine how giving too much ability to schedule things out could lead to the service becoming more like flight planning than on-demand transport.

Google Docs, Sheets, And Slides Updates Automatically Download Recently Opened Files For Offline Editing [APK Download]

The problem of having files stored in the cloud is that they're not accessible when you're offline. For a while now, Google has been attempting to change this by making files on Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides available to download for offline viewing or editing.

With the latest update to the three apps, any file that has recently been opened will be downloaded to your device. (Note: Slides has not rolled out yet, but we'll let you know when it does.) If you lose your internet connection, this file will be available offline. The changes you make will then be synced back once you've got an internet connection.

Opera Max v2.0 Appears In The Play Store Under A New Listing With Mysterious 'Boost' Feature [Update: Sounds Shady]

Opera was once just a maker of browsers (a browser that cost money in fact), but more recently it's branching out into other areas. For example, the Opera Max VPN service. Opera Max compresses data before it gets to your phone to lower your usage, and there's a new version out today. Opera Max v2.0 is in the Play Store, but it's got an entirely new listing.

Android N Feature Spotlight: Exposure Settings Make A Return In The Camera App

The camera might be, overall, the most complained-about feature in stock Android. While other flagship devices such as the Samsung Galaxy S7, the iPhone 6S, and the HTC 10 have gratuitous features provided in their camera apps, the Nexus devices have none. No white balance adjustments, shutter speed corrections, or different filters. Maybe the most obvious option that has been missing is exposure settings, which just about every other device worth its salt has.

However, if dev preview 2 and 3 are of any indication, an option to make changes to exposure may be coming back. In Dev Preview 2, the Pixel C had a Manual Exposure toggle under 'Advanced' in Settings.

Gello, CyanogenMod's Custom Chromium-Based Browser, Is Rolling Out To Some CM Builds Now

Remember Gello, that neat Android browser based on Chromium code that was teased by the CyanogenMod developer team a little less than a year ago? It looks like the app is finally finished, or at least ready to make a version 1.0 debut. Joey Rizzoli, the CM developer who teased Gello last July, says that it's ready to go and that managers can begin to incorporate Gello into nightly builds. The browser will be added by the individuals or teams of developers responsible for upkeep on each CyanogenMod device build, so Gello may or may not be immediately on your device's nightly release.
