Microsoft OneDrive App Gets Updated With Search (Yes, It Really Didn't Have That), Pull To Refresh, New Nav Drawer

A quick glance at the OneDrive 2.6 changelog on the Play Store probably would have you saying "meh," but if you actually read it closely, it's more of a "seriously Microsoft, are you kidding me?" The multi-billion dollar software giant's Android app for its cloud-based storage service was apparently lacking a little something called "search" until its most recent update. So now you can actually find your files and folders in OneDrive without aimlessly navigating through them with no help.

[New App] Google Wants You To Build A MacGyver Version Of The Oculus Rift Out Of Cardboard And Stick Your Phone In It

This is Google Cardboard. It's really, really weird.

Here's the gist: Google is experimenting with virtual reality displays at I/O 2014, including a new VR toolkit for developers to try out. They've also created an Android app that will let you simulate an Oculus Rift-style, dual-screen VR headset using only your phone, kind of like that Samsung rumor from last month. Here's the problem: you don't have a headset. Google I/O attendees are getting free headsets that they can build out of cardboard, which then holds their phone at optimal VR-viewing distance.

Spotify Update Brings The Ability To Add Full Albums To Playlists, Confirm Dialog On Duplicate Songs, And Something About Chicken Soup

Hey, Spotify users – how's it going? It's about to be going even better, because with the latest update to the music streaming app, you can finally add full albums to playlists (I kind of can't believe this wasn't possible before), and it will also confirm if you try to add the same song to a playlist twice. Both are welcome features, and should improve the playlist experience pretty drastically – it'll definitely make it a lot easier to make playlists from the collected works of a single artist.
