[Pretty cool] ViewRanger lets you see and navigate your outdoor maps in Augmented Reality with Skyline

ViewRanger is popular among outdoorsy people for its hiking trails and off-road topographical maps from different sources and known publishers. The fact that you can track and create your own trails, navigate using an Android Wear watch, and keep all your maps offline for use when away from a signal is more than just one big plus. And now there's a new cool feature for ViewRanger users: Skyline.

Skyline is an augmented reality map layer inside the ViewRanger app. It transforms your camera view into a lively map, pointing out the peaks, cliffs, lakes, glaciers, towns, villages, mountain passes, and other known places as you pan around your environment.

Yahoo Answers Now comes to Android with all its useful, random, and weird Q&As

Yahoo Answers is a treasure trove of answers about any and every question you might have. Whether I have a technical query or a random question I'm wondering about, it's almost always been asked by someone else on Yahoo and it shows up as a search result on Google. The answers there aren't always the best I could find, but they often help in getting me on the right track. It's kind of sad that one of Yahoo's oldest and least appealing entities (in appearance) has survived this long and is still one of its most popular nowadays.

While you can access Yahoo Answers from the browser on your phone, a native app is sure to be more practical if you like to spend some of your time asking weird questions or answering strangers' queries.

Cortana app now available in the UK after a user interface refresh in version 2.0

We haven't heard much from Microsoft's Cortana, the voice assistant that's built into Windows 10 and available in app form on Android and iOS, in a while. Amazon and Google, with their respective Alexa and Assistant/Home brands, have been far more vocal in the last few months. Today the Cortana app gets its first major update in the better part of a year. And in a move that probably should have come a lot sooner, the mobile version of Cortana is now available in the UK.

Chrome 55 adds download manager, offline pages, performance improvements, and more [APK Download]

Chrome 55 was released for the desktop a few days ago, and now the Android version has followed suit. If you've been using Chrome 55 beta, most of this should already be familiar, but there are a few new changes in store as well.

Download Manager

Until now, Chrome has used Android's built-in download manager to list browser downloads. Back in September, Chrome's very own Download Manager appeared in Chrome Dev, and now it has finally made it to the stable channel. You can sort by file type, see how much space is being used by downloads, and view/delete your saved pages.

Transparency app from Amazon shows the origin and ingredients of consumer goods

As the WalMart of the Internet age, Amazon has its fair share of detractors, and for some of the same reasons. With tens of thousands of vendors using Amazon as a storefront, to say nothing of millions of products the company sells directly, sometimes its wares can be a bit on the obscure side. A new system from the retailer is trying to offer a bit of transparency, showing consumers where the products they've ordered were made and packaged. The app is appropriately titled Transparency.

T-Mobile's DIGITS beta allows multiple phone numbers on a single device

We've seen a few apps and services offer virtual phone numbers before - numbers that aren't tied to a specific SIM card and can be used with an account connection rather than dedicated hardware. It's especially handy for bring-your-own-device situations at work. But T-Mobile seems to be the first major American carrier to embrace the idea with its new DIGITS system. The service allows customers to use any number of, um, numbers tied to their wireless accounts, including disposable numbers that can be added and abandoned with ease.
