VLC for Android crosses 100 million downloads on the Play Store


With Android now running on over 2 billion active devices around the world, it's no surprise to see many popular apps beginning to cross the 100 million (or even 1 billion) download milestone. The most recent member of this select club is the popular VLC player for Android, which has just been downloaded over 100 million times on Android devices. As always, this counter is per device and not per account, meaning that if you've installed VLC on more than one of your devices over the years, then you've also contributed more than once towards this download count.

VLC isn't the most popular video player on Android — that crown would probably have to go to MX Player — but it is arguably the second most popular.

Google Voice 5.3 update brings multi-select for messages [APK Download]

Google just pushed a minor revision to the Google Voice app for Android, bringing it up to v5.3. Nothing huge appears to have been changed, but there is one small but useful new feature. Now long-pressing on a message brings up an option for multi-selection, rather than just a menu for simple actions pertaining to a single message. So the next time you need to mass-delete messages sent to your Google Voice account, it won't be quite such a tedious affair.

YouTube v12.29 includes hints about location-specific search [APK Teardown]

YouTube is a fantastic tool for learning about the world around us, but sometimes it's easy to forget that there are great things happening in our own backyard. A teardown of the latest update suggests we might soon have the option to add geography to our search criteria. This should make it a bit easier to separate videos about Alaska from the recipes for Alaskan King Crab, music videos, and whatever else people might associate with the name. I'll also mention a couple of smaller changes to the interface in this version, but they're not really important, so feel free to skip straight to the teardown.
