Google's Handwriting Input got its independent Play Store listing back in April and has since received very few updates. That's why the latest version bump to 1.5 (and the subsequent 1.5.1 release) seemed to be significant and in fact, it added 5 new languages to the list of existing 82 languages. These are Arabic, Persian, Urdu, Hebrew, and Burmese.
You will have to download language packages if you choose any of these input methods inside the app, but once that's done and enabled, you will be able to scribble on your screen in your language of choice and Handwriting Input will convert that into text in any app. Read More

Now you can install the app directly from the Play Store from your set-top box of choice. Alternatively, you can head to the website and download the app remotely. Read More

Now you can get the latest tweaks and features in MX Player via a Play Store beta. Read More
Last Tuesday I got a top of the line McLaren F1 from earning $16020 these last four weeks while working 3–4 hours a day, all in the comfort of my living room couch. This is definitely the coolest work I have ever done. Without any question it's the most financially rewarding I've had. I started this 4 months ago and practically straight away began to bring home over $97 per hour. Visit this weblink to start immediately.
Alright, I'm kidding. Read More
A very long-awaited update to Google Fit began rolling out earlier this week, but it seemed to focus almost entirely on improvements to the Wear micro-app while the main app was all but ignored. As it turns out, that was a mistake. A fresh update to the app started rolling out yesterday and it brings the rest of the features that were intended for this release – and what a list of features they are.
Note: Everything here was about to be part of a teardown, but the update stole that thunder. Read More
The latest title from Spacetime Games is out on Android, and it's yet another multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) geared toward mobile play.
