What's SugarSync's biggest advantage over its competitors? Its logo. That's right, that green bird is just so darn cute, and it gives your app drawer an extra degree of spice the others just can't match. That's not to say the service is all fluff though. Version 4.1 of the SugarSync's Android app introduces a number of intriguing features. The most notable of these additions is the inclusion of offline folder syncing.
The Xposed Framework provides incredible, fine-grained control over the features and functionality of Android. You can do almost anything, but sometimes you just need an extra button – it's good for that too. ViewInPlay is a new module that handily creates links to the Play Store.

The first official version of the Google Now Launcher is only installable on the Nexus and Google Play Edition devices running KitKat.
Plex was one of the early apps to add Chromecast support. This is great, because as a service that takes content stored on one of your computers and makes it accessible anywhere, it's the ideal candidate for Chromecasting. Yet the team isn't settling for simply putting videos up on the big screen, and after the latest update, the app now goes a step further by tossing up detailed information on it while you browse through content on your mobile device.
The fourth Thief game is hitting consoles and PCs in North America today, and as you would expect, Square Enix has dropped a full companion app into the Play Store. A lite version came out earlier this month that provided game news, trailers, artwork, screenshots, and other ways to hype up eager gamers. Now the full version, priced at $2.99, is here to serve as a true companion to the main experience.
