Microsoft put a good deal of focus on Titanfall when it pushed out the Xbox One, and it remains the most high-profile title for the console. The action-packed first person shooter shakes up the traditional deathmatch formula by adding mechs that players are free to hop in and out of. As a result, the game introduces more of a vertical component to the firefight, as combatants are able to hop along walls and wage war across various floors.
As predicted back in March based on an APK teardown, Google Now has received bill reminder integration via your Gmail account. The level of detail for some billers seems fairly basic at the moment: Google Now identifies emails in your Gmail account as bills, and a card will show up with the name of the biller, the amount due, the due date, and an option to view the email the bill was sent with.
After numerous reports that the Swype app was making OCD-level location requests on some users' devices, the company updated the popular 3rd party keyboard to, well, not do that. At least one user claimed the app requested his location nearly 4000 times in a single day, which obviously has some rather unfortunate implications for battery life.
While some users have tried to turn this into a privacy issue (come on guys, it's a keyboard app), more than anything it just seems like a potentially battery-killing bug that needed squashing.
With today's three new Google Glass apps, you can plan a trip, book a table, and check in all along the way: Foursquare, TripIt, and OpenTable have all released official Glassware.
Foursquare, of course, allows you to check in on Google Glass, handy for a social service that really is all about doing one, simple task. TripIt will provide you travel alerts for your plans, and OpenTable allows you to make a reservation using voice commands.
Some places offer delivery and some don't. This is the way things are, sure, but that doesn't make life any easier for the busier (or lazier) among us. There's an itch to be scratched here, and Postmates steps in to handle it. The service turns any restaurant or grocery store into one that's able to deliver to your door. It does this by paying people to read your shopping list, pick everything up, and bring it to you.
The SwiftKey developers are getting ready to introduce a version of their popular third-party keyboard with Japanese input support. Prominent features should transition over just fine, with the keyboard still able to make personalized predictions and suggest emoji that it thinks may be appropriate. It will be able to switch back and forth between Japanese and English, making it useful for native Japanese speakers and friends of Japanese speakers alike.
The app is currently in beta, but it's open for anyone to download and try.
In a fairly surprising move, Google just announced on the company's Android developer blog that the Play Store will now allow users to pay for their purchases using PayPal in 12 countries. Those countries are Austria, Belgium, Canada, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Spain, the US, and the UK.
Last month, Dropcam updated its app with a slew of new features and a more unified interface. Building on that update, the company has now released version 3.0, which brings a handful of unique features to the Android app.
In a nutshell, the app now has an "Activity Feed" that allows Cloud subscribers to filter videos by specific activities, completely customizable activity categories and alerts, and the ability to set the camera up directly from a mobile device.
