Google Trips will now prefer saved places when putting together a day plan

Google Trips is one of the lesser-used Google apps - it was only released in April - but that's not to say it's not incredibly useful. When the time comes to plan a trip, the app should be the first thing you look at to decide what to do, where to eat, and check for any reserved tickets or other items. A new update, 0.0.42, for Trips has arrived on Google Play, adding some neat new functionality for even better ways to plan your trips.

By far the biggest thing in this update is the ability to have Trips prefer saved places when creating a day plan.

Gmail v6.11 changes the interface for quoted text in replies [APK Download]

The latest version of Gmail began rolling out today with a short list of changes. Only one, actually. There's a tweak to the way quoted emails appear when you begin a reply, leaving the interface cleaner but possibly less intuitive. As usual, we've got a download link at the bottom of the post if you're looking to get the latest update ahead of its normal rollout schedule.

AirDroid 4.0 gives the utility a user interface redesign from the ground up

AirDroid, the free app that offers easy file transfers and remote management for Android devices, remains one of the best and most consistent apps on the Play Store. Developer Sand Studio is scrupulous in maintaining the app's functionality and improving it with new features and design tweaks. Today the dev introduced what's probably the biggest change to the platform since it offered a paid option: a complete visual overhaul.

Nexar turns any Android phone into an always-on AR dashcam

A dashcam is one of those things that seems only slightly important until about five minutes after a fender-bender, wherein it becomes retroactively essential. Even so, those dashboard-mounted cameras don't grown on trees, so most cars in the US still aren't equipped with them. Nexar, a new Android app that's currently in "unreleased" status on the Play Store, aims to fix that. It turns any Android device into an AI-powered dash cam - all you need is Android 4.1 or later, a rear camera, and some way to mount it in your vehicle.

Nest update adds Android TV support, clip saving and sharing

Saving and sharing video clips should be one of the rudimentary features of any connected camera system, so I'm surprised Nest didn't have that option until now. But now it does and it works in two ways. You can create an "instaclip" of any recorded event in your Nest timeline, but you can also tap and hold on the icon to make a custom clip with your chosen start and end times. After the clip is generated, you'll have the choice of either saving it locally to your device or sharing it with your contacts.

That's one of the two major features added with the latest Nest app update.

The famous New York Times crossword puzzles move across platforms and down to the Play Store

The first and last time I attempted to solve a crossword was on a 12-hour flight from Amman to Chicago where I just couldn't sleep or do anything else. I love word and math games, but for some reason, crosswords never really hit the right spot for me, so I just gloss over them when I come across one. But I know a lot of people who absolutely dig crosswords. And for them, the New York Times is the epitome of puzzles.

Now those same puzzles, which were previously only available on iOS and the web, are also accessible on your Android phone through the NYTimes Crossword app.

Google's YouTube Kids application launched just under two years ago, as an attempt to make YouTube a bit more children-friendly. The app has been somewhat successful, with a few bumps along the way.

The GO series of games have, by all accounts, been a big success for Square Enix. We at Android Police love both Hitman GO and Lara Croft GO, and Deus Ex GO is no different - it's great.

This goes for many countries, and may even be worldwide, but we cannot verify that. Let us know in the comments what the price is in your country.
