Pokémon GO passes 100 million Play Store downloads in just a month

Holy crap, you people really like playing Pokémon. A combination of nostalgia, interesting augmented reality gameplay, straight-up social novelty, and (not least) being a free game has made Niantic's Pokémon GO rocket to 100 million downloads in the Play Store in just a month. Life isn't a race, but if it was, Pokémon GO would be so far ahead of every other game that they'd see it disappearing beneath the horizon.

OneView Calendar brings a unique twist to complex calendar management

Calendar apps aren't exactly hard to find on the Play Store. There are pretty ones, functional ones, cross-platform ones designed to work with every service under the sun, and then there's Google Calendar that everyone comes back to when their favorite stops updating. You might think there's nothing new to explore in the space, but you'd be wrong. OneView Calendar manages to put a new spin on a somewhat tired standard by refining it to an impressive degree.

Quidgets hides homescreen widgets in the Quick Settings tiles on Android Nougat

Android's homescreen widgets were one of its signature features when it debuted as an iOS alternative (which is kind of funny in itself), but developers seem to positively thrill in ways to stick them in other places as well. Case in point: Quidgets from Joseph Paul Antonetti. This little app allows users to hide a full-sized homescreen widget up in the Quick Settings menu, making it accessible from any app with a quick swipe. There's only one downside: it's exclusive to Android 7.0 for the time being.

New Android Wear app update announces shutdown of Together by September 30... because Wear 2.0

A new update to the Android Wear app is rolling out now to version 1.5.0.308, but this one carries sad news for those of you who are using the Together watchface and its different features to closely communicate with a friend or loved one.

Introduced about a year ago, Together was a way to pair your watch with a partner's and share sketches, photos, emojis, stickers, and activities. But with Android Wear 2.0's upcoming addition of more interactive watchfaces and messaging features, Together is no longer as unique as it once was.

That's why Together is now living its last days. In the new Wear app update, you'll see a notice of Together being shut down on September 30, with the reason being its redundancy with Wear 2.0.
