Official Imgur App Leaves Geo-Restricted Beta, Now Available For All Users

Imgur's official Android app first hit the scene back in early-ish April, but was then geo-restricted to Australia (later expanded to UK and Canada) whilst in its beta period, leaving tens of thousands (possibly even millions) of angry image-searchers without, well, an app. Hell was raised, tempers flared, blah blah blah. The calm settled in once again, and life went back to normal for the bulk of us.

But now, everything changes.

Huge Root Explorer Version 3.0 Update Adds Tabbed User Interface, Cloud Storage Support, Background Processing, And More

Root Explorer is a favorite among power users, including yours truly, for its no-nonsense approach to file management on Android. That said, the app was getting a bit long in the tooth before today, with a stale UI and a lack of new features. Developer Speed Software has released a major update to Root Explorer with a ton of new content, including a revamped user interface, networking and cloud storage options, and background processing.

Evernote Introduces Three New Features To Keep Your Account Secure: Two-Step Verification, Access History, And Authorized Applications

Whether we're talking about Twitter, Gmail, bank accounts, or anything else accessible on the web, account security is no joke. As a result, we're starting to see more and more companies take advantage of advanced security methods like two-factor authentication, which requires the user to not only entire a username and password, but also a code typically send via SMS to the user's cell phone. This means that a physical device must be accessible, making it much more difficult for would-be snoopsters to remotely gain access to an account.

Google Calendar App Update Brings Color Customization Options, New Event Creation UI

The Google Calendar Android app received an update this afternoon, introducing a brand-new interface for certain steps during event creation, as well as the option to custom color-code days / your entire calendar. The new interfaces for these features are actually quite pretty, focusing on a circle-based design aesthetic that is more reminiscent of the Android 4.2 clock app in some ways.

These aren't actually huge features in terms of functionality, but they should definitely give you an idea where the Calendar app is headed in future iterations.

Google Play Music Update v5.0.1041J Introduces Features That Were Surprisingly Absent

When Google unveiled Google Play Music All Access earlier this month, they introduced the option to supplement our existing music collections with the millions of songs available through their service. What they didn't tell us was that those songs weren't as easy to remove from our libraries as they were to add. Sure, the web interface made doing so simple enough, but that isn't much use when a particularly jarring track makes itself known during the commute to work.

Download: Latest Google Play Store 4.1.10 With Location Bug Fixes

A new update to the Google Play Store app with version 4.1.10 is rolling out following the big 4.1.6 refresh from two weeks ago, just before I/O. As far as I can tell from a quick teardown and playing around, this is a minor update. All the important changes happened in the previous release, so 4.1.10 is likely a bug fixer. That said, if you see something I missed, please drop a line in the comments.
