[APK Download] Dropbox Gets A Material Design Makeover And Gesture Folder Navigation In Version 2.6

Apps with tens of millions of users tend to either spend a lot of time and effort conforming to Android's visual standards... or spend none at all, considering their own cross-platform UI more important. Dropbox has tended to fall into the former category, but it's taken them a while to get on board with the Material Design standards introduced with Android 5.0. That changes today: version 2.6.0.2 adds a new UI that follows the Material Design playbook.

OneClip Is Microsoft's Upcoming Cross-Platform Cloud Clipboard Service

There's little doubt in anyone's mind that Microsoft has been marching forward with its cross-platform strategy over the past months. The company has been releasing more and more apps for Android and iOS, trying to spread its wings beyond its own operating systems and grab a few users across the pond. While some of these apps are the serious productive tools that we expect from Redmond, others have been quirky, experimental, and sometimes even wtf-worthy. That's not the case with OneClip.

[Bug Watch] Google Maps Fails To Load Directions When Prompted From Search

If you're looking for a nearby place to eat and want directions on how to get there, open Google Maps first. If you try using the Google Search app or the web, you probably won't get the results you want.

You see, Search is currently having a hard time giving out directions. If you tap the icon underneath a restaurant, it will open up Google Maps, but after that... nothing.

I remember the Cartoon Network of the early 2000s, back when shows like the Powerpuff Girls, Johnny Bravo, and Ed, Edd n Eddy were the latest things out. But the channel has moved on to a new generation. These days I find myself writing about cartoons I've never heard of, like Steven Universe and Mixels. The latter apparently involves tribes of colorful creatures that defend Mixel Land from destructive things called Nixels.

The new version of Shazam has a feature that will probably appeal to smartwatch people. You can now use your Android Wear watch to identify songs and see lyrics without ever touching your phone. In fact, you only have to touch the watch twice (or zero times) to get it done.

Sleep as Android Integrates With Google Fit And Adds Pebble Time Support

How do Androids sleep? Why do Androids sleep? I wouldn't know. I do know, however, that if you want to sleep like them, you can get the help of an app that rises (or lays down) to the task. Sleep as Android helps you fall asleep with lullabies, tracks your sleep cycles, and wakes you up at an optimal time with nature sounds. And it just got a little bit better in this latest update.
