Some Android Users Are Seeing 'Did You Mean...' Corrections In Google Search Suggestions

Anyone who's used the Internet for a few days knows that Google (and all the other search engines at this point) will suggest alternative search terms if the algorithm determines that you've made a typo or a mistake. At least one user is now seeing this behaviour on the Android app version of Google Search, and seeing it before you would expect to: right in the drop-down search results that appear before you actually press Enter.

TellTale Games Shows Off Minecraft: Story Mode With The First Official Trailer

You might think that a game like Minecraft, where there's no story and you essentially build an entire world out of complicated digital LEGOs, doesn't lend itself well to the adventure game format. You might be right. But if anyone can make a licensed story out of Mojang's phenomenal open-world title, it's TellTale Games, who have successfully adapted such diverse properties as The Walking Dead, Borderlands, Game of Thrones, and Back To The Future into episodic adventure games with near-universal appeal.

With some focus on changes to the desktop version, there aren't major user-facing changes in this Android update. Still, there should be some performance enhancements along with a nice UI improvement for navigating forward and backwards through a tab's history.

The overflow menu has been home to the forward and back shortcuts for quite a while now, but there wasn't an efficient way to navigate by several pages.

Chrome For Android Hits 1 Billion Installs On The Play Store

When an app reaches 1 billion installs on the Play Store, it's like being officially recognized as one of the cool kids. Chrome for Android is the latest to join the clique, sliding through the door just a week behind Hangouts, making it the 12th app to flash a 10-digit install base.

Swappa Releases An App That Tells You How Much Your Phone Is Worth, But That's All

Swappa is an online marketplace where you can buy and sell gently used smartphones, tablets, and smart watches. It sort of makes sense it would have an app, but they only just now got around to it. It doesn't really do a whole lot right now, though.

The Swappa app is really just a price checker in this initial release. When you open it, the app identifies your phone and gives you pricing history, as well as what it's going for now.

Autodesk Releases Fusion 360 Collaborative CAD Tool In The Play Store

As with most of Autodesk's apps, the newly released Fusion 360 has somewhat limited appeal. However, anyone who does have use for it will be crazy-excited, and they know who they are. Fusion 360 is the company's collaborative 3D design tool with a more basic feature set and affordable price (free for non-commercial use). The app is not a full-fledged design tool, but it allows remote review of designs.
