Google Releases Quickoffice Update To Finally Push Users To Install Docs, Sheets, And Slides [APK Download]

Google has a well-earned reputation for funding multiple redundant and competing products, then unceremoniously eviscerating the ones that don't quite fit the company's vision. <cough>messaging clients, Currents, and that other one</cough>. Now, it looks like the selection of document editors is also about to undergo such a diet. Google is finally getting ready to pull the plug on Quickoffice. An update to the app now warns users that support has ended, and that it has been replaced by Docs, Sheets, and Slides.

DISH Network has updated their official app with a variety of improvements and new features, making it better both as a streaming video player and as an account management console.

Each profile will have its own favorites list and recommendations, making family sharing a lot smoother.

Also on the streaming side of things, DISH has tried to make following the NCAA men's basketball tournament simpler.

A fresh update for YouTube began rolling out today, bumping the version number to 10.10.

Inbox By Gmail Now Rolling Out To Some Google Apps Domains

In a simple tweet, Sundar Pichai stirred up some excitement last month by revealing that Inbox would be rolling out to apps customers "imminently." A few days later, Google invited apps administrators to indicate interest by shooting an email to [email protected] Soon after that, surveys began going out to interested admins, and today it looks like some apps customers have been granted access to Inbox for their apps accounts.

The apparent rollout coincides with an update to Inbox 1.4 (which you can of course find over at APK Mirror). While Google doesn't seem to have officially acknowledged the rollout (or emailed many apps admins with the news) we've received several confirmations, and as it turns out Android Police is among the apps domains with newly-granted access.

[What Could Go Wrong?] Motion Tennis Cast Lets You Use Your Phone Like A Wiimote To Play Tennis On Chromecast

Perhaps you recall the rash of Wiimote-related accidents seven or eight years ago. See, people got really, super into playing Wii, and sometimes the Wiimote just slipped and crashed into the TV. Motion Tennis Cast is kind of like Wii Sports Tennis, but you're controlling it with your phone. That's two expensive things you can break if the phone slips.

Futuremark Releases Alternative 3DMark 'Sling Shot' Benchmark For Android To Make Your Brand New Phone Cry

Some graphical benchmarks are meant to be fairly boring but reliable tests of visual output - the reliable Quadrant benchmark from Aurora Softworks is a good example. Others create an intense graphical test by making a fully-realized 3D environment, essentially a tech demo that's meant to be a digital ruler for the performance of competing components or devices. 3DMark's Android benchmark, with its space battle cutscene, is one of these tests.

2015-03-18 17.47.16 2015-03-18 17.47.37 2015-03-18 17.50.49

Now there's an alternative version of 3DMark. It tests the same technical parameters: frames per second, physics engine accuracy, power output, that sort of thing. The only thing that's different is the 3D cutscene.

Gameloft To Make Modern Combat 5 Free-To-Play In Next Update

Modern Combat 5's release was hardly unexpected. After all, it's a sequel in one of the most popular franchises on Google Play. Nevertheless, it was a surprise to see the Gameloft title launch without a single in-app purchase in sight. In exchange, the publisher priced it at $7. Reasonable.

Ryan put the game through its paces, and while it wasn't without its caveats, it easily provided enough content to justify the price tag.

Now Gameloft is making the game free-to-play. The update is already available on iOS, and it's slated to hit Android soon.

This update makes Modern Combat 5 available for free to millions of new players, and adds controller support, more weapons, a new class and more.

TeamViewer QuickSupport Adds Android TV Compatibility For When Your Dad Needs Help With His New Nexus TV

Or your mom, or grandparents, or siblings or children, whatever. The point is that TeamViewer thinks that there's a market for remote support on Android TV. The QuickSupport app allows users to remotely view and control an Android device from a standard PC - it's essentially the reverse of a conventional remote desktop app. And now it works on your TV! How 'bout that.

Honestly, the Android TV interface is so stripped down and simple - think Roku meets the Play Store - that it's hard to imagine a situation where someone would buy a unit for themselves and not be able to operate it.

HTC Pushes A Big Update To The Dot View App With Animated Themes, Games, And More

HTC is expected to announce the release date for the One M9 any time now, but there are some treats for those of you sticking with the M8 as well. A new version of the Dot View case app is out, and it has a ton of improvements. Also, games. Yes, games. I don't know why either.
