Popular Web Scheduling Service Doodle Releases Its Official Android App

Ah, work scheduling. I recall with fondness long hours spent in the Texas A&M Commons building trying to schedule two weeks of 24-hour emergency desk service around the personal and scholastic lives of a dozen sophomores. No wait, not fondness, that's not right. What's the word I'm looking for? Ah, that's it: abject loathing. Maybe if we had something like Doodle, I wouldn't have spent four hours playing Time Slot Monopoly every other Wednesday.

HERE Maps Adds Reversible Lanes Traffic And Direction In 12 U.S. And European Cities

In Lebanon, we have one seaside road where traffic direction reverses reliably at 11am and 11pm to lower congestion and help more people get into or out of Beirut as fast as possible. It doesn't do miracles on very busy days, but it helps a bit. The idea isn't unique to us and if you live in big metropolitan U.S areas with heavy traffic on some of the highways, then you know what reversible lanes are.

[Update: Fixed] Google Photos Users Complain Of An Invisible Data Cap For 'Unlimited' Photo Uploads

The new unlimited upload function in Google Photos is undeniably generous. But the old saying that your mother taught you, "if something seems too good to be true, it probably is," would seem to be in effect.

Awesome New Google Voice Actions Feature Remembers Which Apps You Want To Launch For Particular Commands

Earlier this week we spotted a new Google Voice Actions / "OK Google" feature - it's called preferred apps. The idea behind it is wonderful: if you use a particular voice action that maps to multiple apps on your phone, you can pick one, and from then on, Google will launch the activity in that app by default. It's simple and brilliant and I love it. Well, I would if Google's implementation was a bit more...

Are Your Hangouts / SMS / Google Voices Messages Coming Unmerged? Google Is Working On Fixing That

On around June 18th, a number of Hangouts users began reporting that merged SMS/GVoice/Hangouts messages in Hangouts conversations were, well, unmerging. This obviously annoyed people, because this is an annoying thing to have happen.

About a week after that, a Google community manager responded to that Google Product Forums thread to let everyone know the team responsible had identified the issue and would be rolling out a fix "shortly." Well, we all know what that means in Google time (read: when it's done), but it looks this week that fix did begin to propagate. At least, sort of. Some users on the Google Product Forums and Reddit are reporting that Google Hangouts and phone SMS conversations are remerging themselves, but Google Voice users are still being left out in the cold, harsh, unmerged text wastes.

Zynga Announces Drag Racing Sim CSR2, Coming To Android Later This Year

The original CSR Racing racked up over 130 million downloads, becoming one of the top free-to-play games on mobile devices. It's no surprise that Zynga snapped up the developer, NaturalMotion last year for half a billion dollars. Now, the sequel has just been announced, and it's predictably titled CSR2.

Like its predecessor, this game will focus exclusively on the drag racing aspect with a ton of officially licensed cars from Ferrari, Lamborghini, McLaren, and others. It's very, very pretty, but the gameplay is also quite simple. That's the formula that made the first one so popular, I suppose.

CSR2 will be soft launching in some regions over the next few weeks, probably on iOS first.
