Chrome 55 adds download manager, offline pages, performance improvements, and more [APK Download]

Chrome 55 was released for the desktop a few days ago, and now the Android version has followed suit. If you've been using Chrome 55 beta, most of this should already be familiar, but there are a few new changes in store as well.

Download Manager

Until now, Chrome has used Android's built-in download manager to list browser downloads. Back in September, Chrome's very own Download Manager appeared in Chrome Dev, and now it has finally made it to the stable channel. You can sort by file type, see how much space is being used by downloads, and view/delete your saved pages.

Transparency app from Amazon shows the origin and ingredients of consumer goods

As the WalMart of the Internet age, Amazon has its fair share of detractors, and for some of the same reasons. With tens of thousands of vendors using Amazon as a storefront, to say nothing of millions of products the company sells directly, sometimes its wares can be a bit on the obscure side. A new system from the retailer is trying to offer a bit of transparency, showing consumers where the products they've ordered were made and packaged. The app is appropriately titled Transparency.

T-Mobile's DIGITS beta allows multiple phone numbers on a single device

We've seen a few apps and services offer virtual phone numbers before - numbers that aren't tied to a specific SIM card and can be used with an account connection rather than dedicated hardware. It's especially handy for bring-your-own-device situations at work. But T-Mobile seems to be the first major American carrier to embrace the idea with its new DIGITS system. The service allows customers to use any number of, um, numbers tied to their wireless accounts, including disposable numbers that can be added and abandoned with ease.

[Deal Alert] Grab the Poweramp Full Version Unlocker for $0.10 in select countries (not in U.S.)

The smartphone has replaced a lot of things. For me, one of its most notable uses is as a portable music player. Frankly, I have not even picked up my iPod Touch in... months. Yet, your smartphone needs a good app to play that music. Poweramp has been one of the big names on Android for a long time. It was my player of choice at one point. Luckily for some, this is the $0.10 app of the week (since the game has been posted already). You should all know the drill by now.

Android Pay makes its way to Ireland

Android Pay may not yet exist where you live, but it is slowly continuing to expand into new markets. As of today, Pay is available in Ireland, making this effectively the first time a user can use euros with Android Pay.

Impressively, Android Pay works on any NFC-enabled phone running KitKat 4.4 and up — which as of last week potentially represents as much as 84.7% of active devices. Setting up mobile payments requires adding an eligible debit or credit card from either AIB or KBC, with more banks to be added "in the coming months." For now, Android Pay in Ireland supports nine retail partners and seven apps, including Tesco, McDonald's, and Uber.

Are you discontent with the many dozens of on-demand music services? Well, here's one more for you to try and hopefully love... or maybe hate, because let's be realistic, if you still haven't found one that works well for you, it's going to be very difficult to satisfy your taste. But iHeartRadio would sure like to take on that challenge with its two new paid plans.

Google testing modified navigation interface in Maps

Something weird happened to me on Sunday. I was driving to my friend's house with Google Maps, but my navigation interface was screwed up. Only the big roads were showing, without any street or highway names, nor any other details. I was on 9.42.3 and in the beta channel so I just attributed it to that.

But today, after getting the new 9.42.3 Maps installed on the Pixel XL (note it's the same version number), and noticing it didn't fix it, I decided to delete app data. When trying again, I got a new interface:

Left: current interface, Center: new interface, Right: after expanding "more"

Tapping on the ETA bar will bring up a menu where another tap gets you search, alternate routes, directions, and a shortcut to navigation settings.
