Over the past month or two, you may have noticed a change in our "APK Download" posts. Previously, we went through an admittedly tedious process of first hunting down the APK we wanted, and then uploading it to a selection of various mirroring services, each with their own interfaces, ad concerns, and other quirks. In fact we have switched mirroring services several times because of intrusive advertising or other issues our readers faced.

If you use the device security suite Cerberus, the app is getting one of its biggest updates ever in a couple of weeks, but you can grab it on the beta channel right now if you're not inclined to wait / want to be a guinea pig. Version 3.0 overhauls the design of the app to meet Google's material guidelines (as interpreted by Cerberus, of course), but there are a bunch of features packed in there, too.

The Office mobile app just got an update, and for once it's bringing something you might care about. The latest update adds the Dropbox integration that was announced early this month. You can now open, edit, and save documents in Dropbox using the Office app.

I love Lastpass. I've been using it for over a year at this point, and I fear I can no longer live without it. A few months ago, the Lastpass Android app gained the ability to detect password prompts on the web and in apps and offer suggestions for autofill - much like the browser extension does. It worked well enough, though was kind of buggy. Still, the convenience outweighed the annoyance, so I think we all gave it a pass.

A pair of Amazon apps have popped up in the Play Store, but they're both for pieces of hardware you can't get yet. The Amazon Echo app is the companion to Amazon's bizarre connected speaker, and the Fire TV remote app adds functionality to the Fire TV Stick. I would wager the second will get more downloads.

There are different approaches to making email simpler and faster to deal with. Google's Inbox tries to group your communications by type, other apps transform email into tasks, and some keep the same ol' concept we're all used to but sprinkle some useful options here and there. WeMail adopts this third approach, while still attempting to interfere (mostly for the better) with the way your inbox is displayed.

WeMail pulls your email from Gmail, Yahoo, Outlook, and AOL, and groups it by sender, essentially collapsing your inbox into a more manageable size.

If there ever was a reason to use the Amazon Appstore, this is it. Monument Valley, the game that has enchanted and awed (almost) everyone who played it is being offered for free today by Amazon, down from its original price of $3.99.

While it's been available on iOS for some time, United updated its Android app today in order to add support for a rather cool feature: on-device entertainment. Instead of having to deal with that atrocious LCD on the headrest, now you can watch your in-flight movies and TV on your own phone or tablet.

This is likely both a blessing and a curse. Who knows what the stream quality is like (anyone with an iPad who's used it want to chime in?), not to mention the reliability.

You may not use WhatsApp to send messages, but it's still the most popular messaging platform in the world. As such, it's a big deal when the switch gets flipped and all those messages are suddenly encrypted. That's what the company is doing now thanks to the just-announced integration of the TextSecure protocol from Open Whisper Systems.

Let's change the way we think about Google Glass for a moment. At the end of the day, they're just too jarring for the average person to feel comfortable wearing in public. To people who don't know what they are, they're weird. To people who do, they're $1,500 worth of easily-stolen accessory being flaunted on your face.

But for performing specific-tasks, Glass makes sense. If they can help you perform surgery, why not?
