Since time immemorial, Yelp's Android app has been incredibly ugly. That ends today. The redesign that reached beta testing last month has been released to the general public. It's so much nicer than the old one.
When Google updated Calendar to version 5.1 last week, it introduced a bug that hit users with an "unable to launch event" message whenever they tried to launch an APK downloaded using Chrome or the stock Android browser. Now the company has pushed out a hotfix update intended to do away with the problem.Read More
In a lot of ways, NVIDIA's SHIELD (not to be confused with this SHIELD or that SHIELD) is a typical set-top box. And in many ways it isn't: though NVIDIA has built its living room invader on Android like the previous products in the line, the OS underneath is merely a means to an end. And that end is selling you games, in every form and fashion that the company can come up with.
SHIELD will release its Android TV-powered console sometime in May with a suggested retail price of $199. We took a good long look at both the hardware and the games that NVIDIA hopes you'll play on it.Read More
Over the summer, we banged our heads against our computer screens just to feel closer to the sweet upcoming beauty known formally as Material Design. Then 5.0 arrived and over-the-air updates starting rolling out. Now many of us have had months for the newness to wear off.
But some of us just can't get enough. We want material all the things, not just apps. It's an insatiable desire that not even Google, with its inconsistent app designs, is able to fill.

Twitter looks to be in the process of rolling out a handy feature in its official app, but you probably don't have it yet. A number of users in the Twitter beta program report they now have a built-in browser for viewing links. This appears to be a server-side change, so you can't just install an APK to enable it.
Google intends for Drive to serve as your file manager in the cloud, but for ages now the Android app has limited us to moving files around through drop-down menus. Now it supports basic drag and drop.
You should get a pop-up explaining the new feature after making the jump to 2.2, but in case you don't, here's how it works. Simply hold down on a file or folder. A little bubble will appear at the bottom of the screen telling you how many files you have selected.Read More
