Surprise: Google Doesn't Like ROM Manager Cutting It Out Of IAP Profits, Removes Koush's App From Play Store

Google removed the extremely popular app ROM Manager from the Play Store today for violation of the Google Play Developer Program Policies, specifically the subsection regarding in-app purchases, which requires developers to use Google's in-app billing system.

Koush, the developer of ROM Manager, had until now offered as an option (alongside the Google IAP system) upgrades to ROM Manager Premium from inside the free ROM Manager app using PayPal (or as a license on the Play Store), which pretty blatantly violates the policy in question.

Swype Updated To Version 1.6.5 With 'Significant' Speed Improvements For Tap Typing, Fixed KitKat Compatibility, And More

Swype pioneered the use of gestures to enter words into our mobile devices, a feature that competitors have since picked up, including the keyboard that now ships pre-installed on Google's Nexus devices. Yet while Swype remains a champ at forming words out of our illegible squiggles, it hasn't been the fastest option for manually typing out words the old fashioned way. Now the app has received an update that the team promises significantly improves tap input.

IMDb App Updated To Version 4.0, With Oscar Coverage, Editorial Lists, And Trivia

The Internet Movie Database is one of those invaluable tools that defines the Internet age... at least for movie and TV addicts. Today's app update 4.0 isn't quite as dramatic as some of the previous additions, but it should help you keep on top of the upcoming Academy Award smorgasbord, and might just help you kill some time 'round the holidays too.

Press is an RSS reader for people who take their feeds seriously. There are no gimmicks here, no over-the-top visual elements, and there's no free version to speak of.

[New App] Motorola Contextual Services Is Yet Another App, Or Rather Framework, In The Play Store For Moto Devices

Since being bought by Google, Motorola has developed and released a number of apps into the Play Store, ranging from Touchless Control and its camera to the Moto G's FM Radio. This would be exciting stuff, except these apps remain limited to the devices they ship on, and Google Play availability just allows for quicker updates (which is still exciting, just for less people). Yet even for the people who own these Motorola devices, the latest app the company's dropped into the Play Store isn't going to do much to draw a smile.

OfficeSuite Pro 7.4 Introduces Support For OpenDocument Files, Tighter Box Integration, And More

The latest OfficeSuite Pro update is precisely the kind you want to see come from an office suite. No, the interface hasn't changed on you again. Instead, you now have the ability to access those OpenDocument files that have been floating around. OfficeSuite Pro 7.4 can open ODT, ODS, and ODP files - but, unfortunately, support stops there. You will have to save the document in a Microsoft Office format or as a PDF after making edits.

SwiftKey Update Brings New Winter Theme With All Of The Snow, Wind, And Updated Install Processes Of The Holiday Season

SwiftKey's latest update won't radically alter how you type in the days ahead, but it will do its best to remind you that, baby, it's cold outside. A new winter theme is available that coats your keys in blue and covers them with snow. A cold gust of wind follows your trail as you trace over the keyboard, and the letters show up as large snowflakes as you type. The keyboard's background itself also sports a frosty design.
