Unified Remote gives your PC the TV treatment, letting you control it from afar with just the right blend of convenience and laziness that have turned us into the society that we are. Its developers have created a solid app, and they're not wasting any time making sure it looks up-to-date.

Version 3.1 preps Unified Remote with those touches of Material Design that should make it feel more at home on a device running Lollipop.

All of these "smart" devices in our lives sure are creating a mess for us. We have to remember to charge them and take the time to set them up properly, every gadget has its own app on our phone, and none of them seem to be able to communicate effortlessly with each other unless they come from the same manufacturer, and even then... That's where Yonomi comes into the picture.

In an interesting bit of news this evening, it looks like Google has opened up merchant support to China, allowing developers to distribute free or paid apps, in-app purchases, and subscriptions in over 130 countries.

The news comes in a post to Google's official Android Developers blog, which goes on to explain that Chinese developers distributing paid apps through the Play Store will receive payment via wire transfer to a Chinese bank account in USD.

Embedding photo spheres has been a painful and annoying process since Google announced the ability way back when (and then stopped supporting it in Views). Today, the Google Maps team is making it a lot easier, using the Google Maps Embed API to get the job done. Take a look!

Samsung has milked music before, and now it is ready to milk video as well. The company has announced another creamy media-consuming app intended to pump more value into the hands of millions of Galaxy device owners, and it goes by the name of Milk Video.

This time around, Samsung customers are treated to a way of absorbing various videos from across the web without having to actively search for them.

The debate between physical and digital books is a heated one. Some people prefer the look of a tome on their bookshelf and enjoy the smell of each page as they hold their nose to an old favorite. Others like the convenience that comes with having access to an entire personal library of books whenever and wherever they have their phone. One clear disadvantage of digital books, though, is the ability for a single company to determine when and where you can buy them.

Do you fret about vast government conspiracies, lizard people running the world, and the all-seeing eye of the NSA? Well, you might have a little problem with paranoia there, but you don't have to be paranoid to see the appeal of Telegram. This is a secure messaging app that has full end-to-end encryption, and with version 2.0, a new material design theme.

If you've ever used Chrome for Android, you know it can be an obnoxiously slow browser at times - especially on pages with tons of elements. Part of that, according to Google, has to do with how Chrome currently renders web content, using a pipeline that goes from the CPU to the GPU before content appears on the display. The draw commands from the web page go to the CPU, the CPU turns that code into pixels (textures), and the pixels then go to the GPU which displays them on the screen.

When I switched over to Lollipop on my Nexus 5, I was too lazy to transition back to the Google Now launcher to get that Lollipop aesthetic. Instead, I stuck with Nova, knowing that eventually I'd get the look on TeslaCoil's third-party launcher. Well, today's the day, assuming you're running the beta version of the app.

It's a pretty simple tweak - just jump into Nova's options, head into the Drawer section, and tick the "show pages as cards" button.

RedditSync-Thumb

Reddit Sync is one of the numerous apps Android users can grab in the Play Store to keep up with the site from a mobile device. With the release of version 10, the UI has been hit with a dose of Material Design, just like the Android subreddit before it. The menu button's been detached from the edge of the screen, the side menu now covers up the action bar, and the status bar has turned a tinted shade of blue.
