The revamped My Verizon app is live in the Play Store

There are plenty of annoying things about carriers in general and Verizon in particular. The craptastic mobile app is one of them, but it's somewhat less terrible today. The revamped My Verizon app announced alongside the new plans yesterday is now available for download.

Lyft Premier launches in the Bay Area, Los Angeles, and New York City as an alternative to UberLUX

Pulling out your phone to request a Lyft will get you from point A to point B, but it won't be snazzy about it. You're looking for basic transportation, not a limosine.

But sometimes you want to make an impression. Or maybe you just want to rest your cheeks on more comfortable seats. Either way, Lyft now has an option: Lyft Premier.

Google Maps v9.32 Beta prepares for "Wi-Fi Only" offline maps and new traffic notifications, allows users to clean up places they've never been to, and more [APK Teardown + Download]

A new version of Google Maps hit the beta channel late last night, bring the version number up to v9.32.0. It looks mostly unchanged, but there is a brand new menu option in the Contribute screen that allows users to clean out locations they've never visited before. The bigger news comes from a teardown. A handful of notable new features are on the horizon, including a true cellular-free mode for navigation, real-time traffic notifications, and more. Since this is a beta release and the Google Maps team has been incredibly ambitious with new features, I expect some of the things listed in the teardown are actually live, but for many different reasons they may not appear for everyone or at all times.

Bitly shortens the wait and releases its official Android app

Bitly or bit.ly is one of many services that shorten your links and provide an easy to share URL for social networks. It mostly found its popularity due to Twitter's character limit, making it easy to insert links in any tweet without being tied by how long the original webpage URL is.

After years of existing on the web and integrating with different mobile apps through an API, Bitly is now releasing its official Android app. You can use it to shorten links, customize the URL, and share the result with different apps. And like the website, the app lets you track your link's performance, clickrate, sources, and more through time to see how well your audience is reacting to your shares.

Action RPG Titan Quest comes to Android courtesy of DotEmu

DotEmu is in the business of taking the hits of yesteryear and porting them to mobile devices. Titan Quest isn't as retro as many games DotEmu has published, having just come out on PC 10 years ago (and was well-received). It still costs $15 on Steam, but you can get the Android version for $6.99 right now.

Snapchat adds Memories: an easier way for you to find your best snaps and stories

Snapchat is where I personally drew the line on "I'm too old for this shit" and decided not to bother, but I still get the appeal of the ephemeral shares and I applaud the company for capturing such a dedicated userbase in a relatively short amount of time, despite the large competition in the social network space. But let's put my own thoughts about Snapchat aside and talk about the latest update to the app.

Rolling to Android and iOS is a new Memories feature that lets you easily access a history of your previous snaps and stories. It's accessible from a swipe up on the camera screen and can be searched with keywords to narrow down the results to the item you're looking for.

Final Fantasy VII is out for Android now

Final Fantasy VII. For Android. Do I need to say anything else? Probably, because this post needs some words, so let's get to it! FFVII was released for iOS last summer. The Android version, like the iOS version, will cost you a dear $15.99 to pick up, as well as your trust that Square Enix has done this properly for a touchscreen experience. The app is not listed as compatible with Android TV devices, sadly.
