Droid Zap 3.1 Update Simplifies The UI, Auto Receives Zaps, Adds Some Droid Turbo-Exclusive Perks, And More

Droid Zap began as an exclusive feature that Verizon and Motorola hyped up together, but since then, the feature has spread out to all Android phones and iOS as well. Now the app is getting a visual refresh that should make it look at home on modern devices. The colors are bolder, cards are all over the place, and cute imagery ties everything together. There's also a floating action button hovering in the corner.

Since Google Maps got its update to version 9.1 yesterday, we've been taking a closer look to figure out exactly what's new, and - of course - taking a quick look inside as well.

So far, it doesn't seem like a huge update, but there's at least one big change worth highlighting. In 9.1, Maps will provide helpful information about your destination or a location you look up. The app will give you the current weather and time at the given location, and will provide some fun facts too.

Evernote Premium Customers Can Now Scan Business Cards Using The Android App (But Free Users Can Get In On This Too)

Evernote premium users on Android are now receiving a feature that can take the frustration out of managing a stack of business cards. Instead of storing them all someplace never to be seen again, people can use the app to take a picture of the card and have the information digitized into a note, with Evernote automatically populating the appropriate contact fields.

If you integrate the app with LinkedIn, it will also pull down their photo and other information from the site.

Google Play Newsstand Joins The 500 Million Download Club

Joining the likes of other Google apps like Play Movies, Play Books, and Play Music, and Facebook's Messenger app, Google Play Newsstand became the latest Google app to reach the 500 million download mark, reaching it some time this month. This number obviously reflects only downloads/installs, not active users, but it's still an impressive figure.

Of course this count is including downloads from the days when Newsstand was still Google Play Magazines, before it superseded both Magazines and Currents as Google's de facto news-and-magazine reader.

Microsoft Remote Desktop Beta App Updated To Add RD Gateway Support So You Can Skip The Corporate VPN

Update: It appears RDGateway support is currently in the release client, so we're not sure what this beta update actually added.

Microsoft's RDP client for Android is a surprisingly robust application, and today the beta version just got a pretty significant new feature for corporate and enterprise users: Remote Desktop Gateway support.

RD Gateways are servers that allow remote desktop clients to start a remote desktop session from outside the corporate intranet via an SSL-encrypted port, meaning you don't have to use a workaround like a VPN connection.

Google Releases Invite-Only 'Divide Productivity Preview' Suite For Security-Minded Corporate Users

Half a year ago, Google purchased Divide, a security-focused startup that isn't exactly a household name in the consumer space. The company appealed to enterprise clients by separating personal data from work-related stuff using containers. The acquisition, we figured, came as part of Google's efforts to make Android a better option for corporate users that have traditionally acted squeamish towards the mobile OS.

Now we're seeing at least one byproduct of that arrangement.

If you get your prescriptions filled at Target, the big-box store has just released an app on the Play Store to help you manage them much more easily. The Healthful (shudder) app lets you submit refill requests, transfer scrips to another store, and can even help you find a cheap generic for your prescribed medication. Oh, and it tracks your prescription fill status, too, so no more annoying SMSs or phone calls.

Android TV's Google Search App Arrives In The Play Store For Easier Updates

You can navigate the Android TV interface using a remote control or dedicated app, but Google would really like for you to use your voice. Even if you're typing, the company would prefer you search for what you're looking for, rather than browse manually. This is Google, we're talking about.

The TV version of the Google search app has now found its way into the Play Store, which should allow for easier updates going forward, even if there's no particular reason to rush and download it right away.
