Medium 2.0 Gets A New Logo And A FAB, Adds An Explore Section And Highlights, And Looks Great On Any Marshmallow Device

I have been trying to write about Medium's 2.0 update for a few hours, but I got lost using the app, enjoying it, and I even decided to sign up and write one of my first non-Android stories in years. That's how you know the app is not just good, it's great. I have always thought about joining Medium, but I never felt compelled to. I guess this update was the final push I needed, and I decided to pull the trigger and dive deep in the service.

But let's get back to Medium's update. You may recall that the app was released mere months ago, but it has seen a steady stream of improvements since then.

WhatsApp's Google Drive Backup Finally Becomes Official [APK Download]

If you own a smartphone and live outside the US, chances are you're one of almost a billion monthly WhatsApp users. WhatsApp may not be the most feature-rich messaging platform, but what it lacks in functionality, it makes up for in rock-solid reliability (hi, Hangouts) and virtually unparalleled market penetration (hi, Telegram). That's why WhatsApp is the de facto messaging app for so many people around the world, even if it still requires things like chat backups — something more characteristic of MSN Messenger than a modern messaging service. Fortunately, starting today (and after many months of adding and removing the feature), WhatsApp will offer to automatically back up and upload your chat history to Google Drive.

YouTube Creator Studio v1.4 Tidies Up Its Look And Adds A Bunch Of New Analytics

Here's a little secret about people who run YouTube channels: a lot of them are obsessed with analytics. There's just something about having numbers that compels them to track, analyze, and obsess over every detail. This is the one thing they definitely have in common with website operators and certain types of sports fans. If you happen to be among this crowd, you're probably going to love the latest update to YouTube Creator Studio. It is now absolutely packed with new analytics about your channels, individual videos, audience, earnings, and more.

Tales From The Borderlands Episode One Is Now Free On The Play Store

Hey, you. Yeah you, the gamer who constantly complains that there's nothing new or interesting to check out. First of all, you're wrong, and second of all, here's why: TellTale's adventure games. These folks constantly come up with new and interesting stories to tell (albeit in other people's universes) and wrap them up in a slick, mobile-friendly package with talented writing, great voice acting, and an episodic structure. Why haven't you checked them out yet?

It might be because all those adventure game episodes cost $5 a pop on Android. And I suppose that's fair - since each one will last you about 90 minutes (assuming you only play through it once), it's expensive by mobile standards.

Google Releases Plain Looking Delhi Public Transport App In The Play Store

The Delhi Public Transport app Google has recently dropped into the Play Store has one job—helping you get around India's capital using public transportation without an Internet connection. Looking pretty was not written anywhere on the job application, so it showed up for work dressed rather plain. Fortunately it will probably look better on a small, budget smartphone than it does on high resolution displays.

That's not to say the app is particularly ugly. It just looks lazy, especially for a product that comes to us from Google. But hey, this appearance is not unexpected. Cody came across the app over a month ago when he tore down Maps v9.13.
