The hundreds of minor league baseball teams across the US offer a great way to spend a day at the ballpark without the expense, and sometimes the travel, of going to a full MLB game. The MiLB, as it's called, is getting some much-needed attention on the app front this week, as two new apps have been published in the Play Store to support the various farm teams. Both MiLB First Pitch and MiLB Inside The Park mirror their big league counterparts.

Tasker is the Swiss Army knife of Android power user apps. In fact, that comparison hardly does Tasker justice: it's like the software offspring of a Swiss Army knife and a Tricorder, with an optional Sonic Screwdriver attachment. The much-loved automation and scripting engine got a huge update today to version 4.3, with a list of new features, bugfixes, and small changes that's far too long for us to cover in total.

Chromecast support is becoming something of a fashion item: all the cool kids (or at least the cool media-focused Android apps) have it. The latest app to add support for Google's tiny streamer is Flixster, known for its up to date selection of movie trailers and tight integration with sister service Rotten Tomatoes. Notably, Flixster also supports the UltraViolet system, giving users an alternative to VUDU for their digital copy collection.

Amazon wants to keep you spending money, and as a commerce company, it has the benefit of having no reason to hide this fact. Its recently announced FireTV set-top box marks a play for the television, but that's potentially small change compared to the money to be gained from locking in most of a person's grocery shopping.

The AmazonFresh grocery service is still only offered in parts of California and Seattle, but yesterday the company added support into the Amazon Android tablet app, and now it's rolling out a new product that goes even further to reduce the amount of time it takes to get an item into your virtual cart.

If there's a new product out there whose full potential has yet been realized, developer joaomgcd is ready to step in, showing how just about anything can be done with a Tasker plugin. AutoPebble turns the Pebble smartwatch into a wrist-bound remote control to just about anything you want (as long as it interacts with Android), and this video shows just what cool things AutoVoice and AutoRemote can do when working together.

Most apps, excluding the free ones, cost you money. Few work to save you money. As it turns out, Automatic is that type of app. This little piece of software serves as a driving assistant that's less concerned about where you're going and more focused on how you get there. It keeps track of how you drive, alerting if you're accelerating (or braking) too hard, speeding, or engaging in other shenanigans that come back to bite you at the pump.

Google Keep recently got a pretty big update that includes searchable images, list settings, and lengthened storage time of deleted notes (also, more yellow). Those were essentially the advertised features that came in this update, but one redditor found another cool feature: conflicting edits.

Basically, if you are editing a note on two devices at the same time (or happen to leave it open on one), and save them at different times, Keep will now alert that there's a conflict.

Another month has come and gone, which means a ton of app posts on Android Police to sift through. In point of fact, there were fewer notable apps released in March than in the last few months - that's why our primary picks are down to just six. But most of these should be useful to most users, with Per-App Modes and Pixl Preview applying only to root users and Photoshop owners, respectively.

Google is enhancing the previously announced app content indexing in mobile search results. This feature was previously only available with a few apps and in limited regions, but now it's going worldwide (for English language content) and includes a bunch of new apps.
