A couple of days ago, Google Drive made news with an update that introduced a new, intuitive Drag & Drop implementation for easier file management. While that appeared to be the only significant change, a look under the hood revealed not only that the Drive team is about to fulfill one of the most often requested features, but it also answered one of the many questions about the fate of Google+ Photos after the split.
The BeyondPod team has recently rolled out its largest update since the big 4.0 transition, introducing a number of features to please longtime fans and Lollipop users alike.
For the former, a dark theme has arrived, and while it isn't default like the old version of the podcast manager, it's available for folks who find the new standard look too bright. There's also the option to reduce card size, allowing you to fit more information on-screen at once.
You don't need to understand the lyrics to like a song, but sometimes it helps. Musixmatch is a slick way to sing along with your tunes or have an impromptu karaoke party, and now it's about to get even better. There's an updated version of it in the Play Store beta channel with some new features and a full material redesign.
Another week down, but as the weekend is upon us, don't you deserve a little something? I mean, isn't it time to treat yo self? Just head below and you can get some apps and games on sale, which is a pretty nice treat.
There's a new app that offers a crazy amount of information on a device's inner workings, but it's only new to Android. AIDA64 has long been available on PCs, and now you can use it on Android to see what's going on inside your phone, tablet, or even your watch. It'll probably tell you way more than you needed to know.
There isn't a shortage of Tron-inspired watch faces for Android Wear with bright neon blue colors, but finding one that is customizable to different styles and watch shapes can be a bit difficult. Enter NAVI, from Tha PHLASH (lots of capslocking there), a cool watch design that hits all the right notes.
Available for both round and square watches, with a setting that lets you remove the redundant digits on the G Watch R (finally someone thought of that!), NAVI comes in both a day and a night mode.
Discovering apps on the Play Store is a daunting task. Unless you are passionate about Android and spend hours going down the rabbit hole of Search / Similar / More from developer, or religiously reading sites like Android Police, you will miss out on a lot of great releases. That's the problem Appeer wants to solve.
Appeer takes a MagicRecs-like approach to app recommendation. The idea boils down to this: Appeer monitors your friends' devices for the apps they install and if 3 or more of them have a new app, it gets recommended to you.
Since time immemorial, Yelp's Android app has been incredibly ugly. That ends today. The redesign that reached beta testing last month has been released to the general public. It's so much nicer than the old one.
When Google updated Calendar to version 5.1 last week, it introduced a bug that hit users with an "unable to launch event" message whenever they tried to launch an APK downloaded using Chrome or the stock Android browser. Now the company has pushed out a hotfix update intended to do away with the problem.
This bug prevented some users from launching the apps they downloaded in our APK download posts, but we were able to get around this issue by rolling out a server tweak for APK Mirror.
