AutoVoice 3.0 adds Google Home, Amazon Echo integration and natural language commands to Tasker

Fellow long time Tasker users will be familiar with João Dias and his awesome AutoApps plugins. One of his most popular, and the one that I use the most, is AutoVoice. Basically, the plugin listens to and hijacks Google Now commands to trigger Tasker profiles — I had a simple one that would turn on my PC via Wake On LAN when I said "Okay, Google. Turn on my computer." Now v3.0 has been officially released and brings some awesome Home, Echo, and IFTTT integrations as well as natural language commands.

Netgear Genie app updated with better looks and worse functionality

Sometimes, app updates don't go as well as intended. Developers may have the best of intentions, but they end up stripping apps of useful features that users relied on or introducing unexpected bugs. Take the new Netgear Genie app for example. The router management app has recently undergone a nice design transition from something that looked straight out of Froyo to something that can potentially fit on a modern smartphone... well if the iOS screenshots are to be believed.

[Deal Alert] Over a dozen icon packs are temporarily free on the Play Store

While I haven't personally used icon packs in a while (my launcher of choice is the Pixel Launcher), they still remain very popular.
