Google Primer 2.0 Comes With An Updated Interface, New Lessons Every Week, Bookmarking, And More

Primer by Google (formerly listed in the Play Store as Primer: Marketing for Startups) is a simple little Android app that helps small business owners get their company off the ground and in the public eye. Users view a number of brief, bite-sized lessons and walk away with a general understanding of what they need to do. That's the idea, anyway.

The Official Khan Academy Android App Is Now Available In Beta

Learning things is great, but a high-quality education usually costs money. Not so in the age of Khan Academy. Thanks to charitable contributions from the likes of Google and The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, you can learn about anything from basic biology to multivariable calculus for free. Now you can do it on Android with the new official beta app for Khan Academy.

CBS Releases An Android TV App For 'All Access' Subscribers

It seems awfully strange that services like Hulu and the various TV apps require you to pay or log in to access content, especially when that content originally aired for free on terrestrial television. They broadcast the shows with ads in the first place, and they're making money on the ads embedded in the streaming video too, so why put up any barrier to entry and lower your potential revenue? CBS, the self-styled "Most-Watched Network in America," takes this one step further with a full, Netflix-style paid service just for its shows. It's called CBS All Access, and it costs $5.99 a month.

Spotify Running Officially Rolls Out To Android Users Starting Today

Spotify Running has been available for quite some time now, first on iOS, but also for Android users who signed up for beta updates. These folks got to try things out back in June. Now Spotify has officially announced the feature's availability for regular premium subscribers with Android devices.

This makes Android's launch a full four months after Spotify Running came to Apple's mobile platform. As for whether this was a long wait, well, we've certainly seen longer.

Spotify Running prompts you to select a tempo when you start running. It will try to provide music that matches your adrenaline level and music preferences at the same time.

EA Releases A Companion App For NBA Live That Lets You Stick Your Face On A Pro Basketball Player

Are you ready to play Electronic Arts' latest $60 roster update? Well hold your horses, because NBA Live 16 doesn't come out for another couple of weeks. But if you're just desperate to try it out in a sort of roundabout way, you can download the official companion app on the Play Store. Well, I say "companion app," but it doesn't have any of the management or social features you might expect from similar game-augmenting apps. Nope, the only thing it does is stick your face in the game.

In and of itself, the "GameFaceHD" feature is actually pretty cool. Not original or unique (the Game Boy Camera was doing this almost 20 years ago), but cool.

Google Camera v3.0 Sneak Peek - Part 2: Camera2, Slow Motion, Dirty Lens Detection, Auto HDR+, And More [APK Teardown]

On the last episode of Android Police Teardowns, Google's plans for Smart Burst were revealed. Soon, Creations are going to become an innate part of the Camera app, giving users their own collages, animations, group pictures with the best possible smiles, and even pictures styled as if they were taken in a photo booth. Many questions remain. Will Google finally make the most out of the Camera 2 API? Will there be slow motion and HDR modes? And will readers get that this intro is just a goofy bit modeled after old TV shows that awkwardly explain the whole previous episode in 30 seconds before continuing with the story?

EvolveSMS 4.0 Comes With An Android Wear App, Fingerprint Authentication, Marshmallow Support, And More

The SMS app that comes with new phones tends to suck in one way or another. Why is the interface so ugly? Bah, switching between conversations is so awkward. Samsung, what are you doing? Motorola, the old Messaging app no longer feels stock―it just feels old.

When you ask a friend for good alternatives, don't be surprised if you hear them mention EvolveSMS. Not only is the app pretty, the combination of using the side panel to list conversations and swiping left or right to switch between them is just plain convenient.

Now version 4.0 is here. Unfortunately, you're not going to get to enjoy most new features just yet without the right hardware.
