Pokemon Go reaches 500 million installs on all platforms

Despite much of the hype wearing off, Pokemon GO is still one of the most successful mobile games of all time. The game has become a cultural phenomenon, not to mention a money-maker for Niantic Labs, The Pokemon Company, and Nintendo. But just how many downloads has Pokemon GO achieved? Over 500 million across Android and iOS, according to a press release from earlier today.

500 million is a bit difficult to wrap your brain around, so let's try to compare it with other well-known mobile games. Pokemon GO has yet to beat out the Angry Birds franchise, with the original game being downloaded over 3 billion times as of July 2015.

Quick Snapseed update fixes a bug that deleted some original photos after editing

Graphic designers know the pain of saving a project and accidentally writing over their only copy of an original photo. Last week Snapseed users knew that pain too, because at least a few of them were experiencing a frustrating bug that did the same thing. While the bug wasn't widespread (we couldn't replicate it on our own phones, for example), multiple Reddit users said that sending a photo to Snapseed via the Share menu could either delete or overwrite the original non-edited photo.

Badland 2 leaves geo-restricted beta, replaces coins and boosters with a single $3.99 IAP [Updated]

The original Badland was a beautiful adventure game with interesting physics, gorgeous graphics, immersive soundtrack, and enough charm to land it on my personal list of 15 hauntingly beautiful dark and atmospheric games. The game was done so well that we forgave its late arrival on Android compared to iOS, applauded it for implementing cloud save and immersive mode for gameplay, and even lauded its implementation of free to play.

Chrome Dev starts handling opening of all links as new "Elderberry" flavor Chrome Tabs, loses all other flavors

Back in April, after Google pulled the option of having tabs and apps merged in Recents, it became apparent that the Chrome team was trying to work out how to move forward. The team placed a new flag in Chrome Dev 52, #tab-management-experiment-type, with five 'flavors' of tab management: Asine, Basil, Chive, Dill, and Elderberry. In Chrome Dev 54, this has now come to a head, with Elderberry being the only option remaining.

A lot of apps have built-in link handling with Chrome Custom Tabs - we're all so used to this now that we hardly think about it.

World of Warcraft: Legion's official companion app is up on the Play Store

Blizzard has been blowing GPAs, sinking careers, and ruining marriages with World of Warcraft for over a decade now. It's an enviable achievement. Though the biggest MMO game in the world has declined in recent years, the latest expansion hopes to add enough new and interesting content to bring old players back and maybe even snag a few new ones. One of the biggest new features is support for an official companion app, so addicts no longer need to rely on a PC to get their WoW fix.

[Update: Stable release] Microsoft OneNote beta adds often-requested ability to open password-protected sections

In our Android circles, Microsoft isn't exactly the popularity king, but you'll often find users praising its OneNote service as a serious workhorse for saving and organizing all kinds of notes. The Android app is quite loved too, aside from one major asterisk if you ask our own Artem or any of the 1400+ users who upvoted this request: password-protected sections were kept out of reach.
