MapQuest For Android 2.0 Navigates Its Way Into The Play Store, Shows Off New Interface, Better Map Quality, And Other Enhancements

As an Android user, you would be forgiven for having never used a navigation app other than Google Maps. It's not perfect, but it's available for free and remains one of the best GPS solutions around, especially if you live in the US. Yet before Google Maps grew into a household names, MapQuest was synonymous with looking up directions online. Now a redesigned version of its mobile app has found its way into the Play Store. Meet MapQuest version 2.0.

MapQuest1 MapQuest2 MapQuest3

The new MapQuest tosses aside its old Gingerbread-friendly looks in favor of a much flatter interface. It may not integrate quite as nicely as Google Maps (no surprise there), but it makes more of an effort than alternative apps such as Sygic and SmartGPS.

[New App] Motorola Continues To Add Stock Apps To Play Store, Now FM Radio For The Moto G

Google-owned Motorola has already added several of the unique stock apps from the Moto X to Google Play for faster updating, but now it looks like the Moto G is going to get the same treatment. The FM radio app for the upcoming budget-friendly phone has hit Google Play.

This app doesn't appear to be compatible with any other devices – not even the Moto X. The tab-based interface looks clean and you get around by swiping. Like other devices with FM radio capability, the Moto G will require wired headphones be plugged in to use as the antenna.

More apps from the device might show up in Play before you can get your hands on it, but this is already an unprecedented level of service for a budget smartphone.

[New App] FCC Speed Test App Hits Google Play, Helps You Keep An Eye On Your Carrier

We're all spending a lot on mobile data, but are we getting our money's worth? That's the question the FCC hopes to help answer with the new FCC Speed Test app. It's exclusive to Android right now and provides you (and the FCC) with data on mobile network performance.

1 2

Unlike most speed testing apps, this is not just a run-on-demand service. You can trigger a test whenever you want, but the app is configured to run occasional tests in the background to get a picture of your network speeds over time. It's set to only consume a maximum of 100MB per month with automated tests, not including any additional ones you might initiate.

Google Search Talks Back - Latest Update Can Hold A Conversation For Certain Commands

Besides fixing Google Experience Launcher on tablets and adding some new cards, the new Google Search update has another trick up its sleeve - it will now hold a conversation with you to perform certain functions, and talks to you in a new way.

Basically, you can now start with very general voice commands like "send a message." The microphone will then turn into a white speaker on a blue circle, indicating that Search is responding to you. It will ask "Who do you want to send the message to?" Then it's your turn. Say a name, and Search will ask what the message should say.

Massive Google Search 3.1.8 Update Rolling Out, Brings Google Experience Launcher To All 4.1+ Devices, New Cards, Completely Fixes GEL On Tablets, And More [APK Download]

A huge Google Search update started rolling out earlier today. It is absolutely massive on many levels:

  • It officially brings Search version 3 (3.1.8 to be exact) that shipped in KitKat to all devices running 4.1+. This includes an updated UI, new refresh animation, among other things.
  • Because Search houses the Google Experience Launcher (GEL) inside, this update also brings GEL to all devices running Android 4.1+. All you need to do after installing Search 3.1.8 is install the launcher app from here, and voila - GEL for all, not just KitKat devices. I have it running on 4.1, 4.3, and 4.4 on both phones and tablets, and it finally looks perfect.

[APK Download] Google+ Updated To Version 4.2.3: Photos Now Supports Android Beam, Daydream, And More

A new update to Google+ is currently rolling out, and when it hits your device, not only will it bring along the usual bug fixes and performance increases, it will contain a number of new features. The Photos app now supports Android Beam, so two Android owners can share images with one another over NFC. There is also the new option to set images within Photos as a Daydream that plays whenever a device is docked. Lastly, users can pull up photo details from the drop-down menu, an ability that's more useful than it is exciting. A Google+ developer has shared screenshots of all three new features in action.

SuperSU Security Advisory: Update To Version 1.69 (Available Now) To Avoid Potential Exploits

If you're a root user, listen up. Chainfire updated SuperSU to v1.69 as of last night, which fixes two exploits that could allow an attacker to leverage root privileges without first prompting the user. Probably nothing to get overly anxious about, but it's definitely a good idea to make sure you're running the latest. Details of these exploits will be released next Monday, so you'll want to grab the update before then.
