While Word Lens does remain one of our favorite pieces of software, there's no denying the company's product has a serious feature gap: support for Chinese and Japanese characters. Enter Waygo.
Waygo is basically World Lens for Chinese and Japanese (no Korean yet, unfortunately), and the free app allows you up to 10 translations per day at no charge. If you want the full version, the upgrade will cost you $7 for a lifetime license. Read More
We've generally liked Dropcam's products, and the company's commitment to strong Android integration has certainly helped. Today, Dropcam announced a new product in the company's lineup, and for once, it's not a camera. Meet Dropcam Tabs - the company's take on motion sensors.
Dropcam Tabs are small adhesive dongles that can be attached to doors, windows, or really any object whose movement you want to track. Dropcam's software allows you to configure the Tab based on what it's attached to, too (door, window, or object proximity alert). Read More

Here, let this weird intro video tell the tale. Read More
iOS-using Pebble owners have been able to enjoy Pandora music controls on their monochrome chronometers since last month, and now Android's finally catching up. Pandora has announced on the company blog that Pebblers (Pebbles? Pebblerites? Pebblians?) with Android phones and tablets can now control the Pandora app's playback using their smartwatch.

Greyhound's BoltBus service lets boarders ride without first purchasing tickets from some strange guy at a station. Instead, the company offers its services through this new invention known as the Internet. For a while now, passengers have been able to purchase tickets online for prices starting at a dollar (but realistically hovering around $20 - $40). Now they can do so using a bright new Android app.
Customers can now get their confirmation number and board a bus without having to get their hands on a computer beforehand. Read More
Google is bumping Maps up to v8.0 today, and as would befit such a big jump in version numbers, there's a lot going on. In positively un-Googley fashion, the app already has a changelog on the Play Store. So, we've got a pretty good idea what's new this time.
Microsoft's recently renamed OneDrive cloud storage platform doesn't get as much love as Dropbox, but it's a solid system that's built right into Windows. The Android app has been getting some attention as of late, and the most recent update seems to have finally made it a capable cloud file manager.
