Google updates kids animation app Toontastic 3D with new Cars 3 and Fruit Ninja themes [APK Download]

Earlier in the year, Google released the impressive Toontastic 3D.

In the latest update, Google adds new characters and settings as part of two additional themes.

Sphero is about to release an app-enabled Spider-Man toy

Sphero got itself recognized for making neat little toys that roll around. However, its next product doesn't move. It's an app-enabled Spider-Man toy with LCD eyes, speech recognition, and games in the companion app. We don't have all the details on this device yet, but retailer John Lewis accidentally pushed the product page live too soon, and Sphero published its app. That's good enough for a basic overview.

Google announces 'Backup and Sync' for Windows and Mac, will replace desktop Google Drive client

The Google Drive client for Windows and Mac is.. decent. It's a bit buggy, and at least on Windows, seems to disconnect every once in a while for no apparent reason. Back in March, we learned that Google was working on a new version called 'Backup and Sync,' because the company accidentally pushed an unfinished version to users which didn't work at all.

New 'Chrome Home' interface is now enabled by default in Chrome Dev

We first spotted the 'Chrome Home' flag back in October, which moved Chrome's address bar to the bottom of the screen.

The startup's goal was clear: Introduce easy to set up and incredibly powerful WiFi across homes that suffer from poor signal. The three-pack of attractive white routers wasn't cheap but performed commendably, and the companion Android app also won many plaudits. After numerous OTA updates improving the service, as well as the release of performance doubling TrueMesh software, Eero is now refreshing its hardware offering with not one but two new devices.

Modified Pixel Launcher APK enables the Google Now pane and other Pixel-exclusive features to work on any device, no root or mods required

It's been eight months since the Pixel Launcher was unveiled alongside the Pixel phones, but it's still exclusive to Google's latest and greatest. Sure, you can download it from sites like our very own APK Mirror and it'll work for the most part, but you still miss out on a lot of the Pixel-exclusive niceties, namely the Google Now pane. However, a developer by the name of AmirZ has come along and made something pretty sweet: a modified Pixel Launcher APK with all of the cool little extras that the Pixel comes with.

Instagram adds support for archiving posts

Instagram makes it easy to share your photos. So easy, in fact, that you might share things you later regret. You don't have to delete those posts anymore, though. Starting now, Instagram has an archiving option.

Google Calculator v7.3 enables text editing and memory actions in the expression field, tweaks the launcher icon, and more [APK Download + Teardown]

One great thing about major updates to Android – and the developer previews leading up to them – is that a lot of the smaller, often overlooked apps tend to get some renewed attention. Google's Calculator app has seen a few builds with each developer preview since it went from v7.21 to v7.3, and each one has included something of note.
