Google Field Trip 2.0 Update Brings Material Design Elements And Content From New Publishers

Field Trip is one of Google's less-known official apps (from the same people who work on Ingress), and appropriately, one of the most unique. The urban exploration app gets its 2.0 update today, bringing the user interface in line with Material Design standards introduced with Android 5.0. As nice as it is to see Google keeping its apps fresh, I have to say that the redesign takes something away in this case.

[Facepalm] 'Battery Life Repair' Is Selling The Placebo Effect For $3 In The Play Store [Update: It's Gone]

Battery not working correctly? Well, just defrag it! It's all so obvious now. No, but really, there's an app in the Play Store that claims to repair your battery and basically looks like a hard drive defrag program. The weird part, it's been in the Play Store for a long time and people (some of them real) rate it quite highly. This is very sad.

[APK Teardown] YouTube v10.0 Set To Bring Video Filters And A Participants View For Live Chats

YouTube has always been one of Google's less conventional properties, but the sudden leap from version 6.0 to 10.0 gave everybody a surprise. Even stranger is that with such a substantial jump in versions, there are virtually zero meaningful changes to the user-facing features. While there's relatively little for us to enjoy right now, a full teardown reveals that there are at least a few additions that might be worthy of a major version bump.

Motorola Uploads Bland-Looking Visual Voice Mail App To Google Play

Accessing voice mail has traditionally been a pain, and while visual voice mail takes much of the aggravation away, it seems many of the supplied apps are designed to capture the essence of the mundane experience and inject it directly into our eyes. To continue the trend, Motorola has added a Visual Voice Mail app to the Play Store that looks about as exciting as a confirmation dialogue.

The app adheres to material design enough not to make a device running stock Lollipop wince, but with awkward spacing and little in the way of color, it could be better.

[APK Download] YouTube Update Adds A New Share Menu And Brings Back Voice Search, Oddly Jumps From Version 6.0.3 To 10.02.3

Say Google, is there something big you're hiding in the latest version of the YouTube Android app that justifies a massive jump in the version number? Because if you are, we can't find it. The YouTube app currently propagating across the Play Store is version 10.02.3, a huge jump from the previous (and not altogether different) 6.0.3. The newer version adds a grid-based share menu and a few changed icons and brings back the voice search option, plus a few changes under the hood, but it's a very strange jump for a comparatively small update.

NextSong Puts Track Info And Music Controls In A Handy Heads Up Notification

Considering how popular the various high-profile music services have become on Android, it's a little strange that none of them have offered something like NextSong built in. It's strange, that is, until you remember how slow most of them are to conform to new Android functions like heads up notifications. In any case, music fans should definitely check out this handy app from independent developer Reactiv Sudios, whom we've featured before on Android Police.

The Bud Light Button App Schedules Beer Deliveries To Your Doorstep...As Long As You Live In DC

 

There are a few perks to living in the nation's capital: you can drive by the White House any time you want, there are loads of historical monuments to check out, the Wizards are actually good this season, and now you can get beer delivered directly to your doorstep with the new Bud Light Button app.

Really, it's not a lot different than other delivery-based apps, but the fact that you can order bottles of beer and have them show up at your house is still pretty neat.
