Visa Checkout integration in Android Pay is now live, one year after it was announced

This time last year, Google confirmed that it was working to add support for Visa Checkout and Masterpass to Android Pay. The aim was to have the services integrated in early 2017, but we've not heard much about it since. There was evidence of Visa Checkout on Google's payment platform in a demo at I/O in May, but it remained to be seen when it would go live for users.

While the Android website shows that PayPal is already supported, it still has a 'Coming Soon' note by Visa Checkout, although we believe that was added recently and as a precursor to today's news.

BBC launches its Arabic news app on the Play Store

BBC publishes a lot of apps for the UK market, but it's been branching out and making apps for a more worldwide audience as well. The BBC News app has already been localized to several languages, with language translations but also a focus on the target culture and audience: there's BBC Mundo, BBC Hindi, BBC Russian, BBC Cymru Fyw, and now the latest addition is BBC Arabic.

The app is obviously in Arabic and right-to-left aligned. It follows the same design as the other apps with a red theme and title bar, different categories of news spanning the world and the Middle East, and covering politics, science, technology, economy, arts, sports, and more.

Latest Google Text-to-speech update adds Filipino and Greek [APK Download]

Google Text-to-speech may not be the sexiest app out there, but it's a particularly useful one for many people, especially those who make use of accessibility options such as Talkback on Android phones.

Outside of Samsung's yearly announcement of a new Galaxy Note, it's rare to see anything interesting happening with a stylus. However, the latest update to Google Play Books comes with some new behavior that makes a stylus much more useful with things like college textbooks and other reference material.

Adobe Lightroom for Android v3.1 adds tablet UI, selective editing, intelligent search, and more [APK Download]

For years, Adobe Lightroom has been the editor of choice for photographers. As opposed to Photoshop, which is more designed for pixel-level editing and layered images, Lightroom is geared towards manipulating photos. It's non-destructive, meaning that any changes can be easily reversed, and all of your edits are kept in the app's catalog.

Adobe has offered iOS and Android versions of Lightroom for a while now. You can select certain collections (aka albums) to sync to the cloud, for editing and viewing on the go. As you might expect, the mobile apps don't have all the functionality of the desktop applications, but they can still be helpful for quick tweaks and importing photos from your phone/tablet.

[Hands-on] Taichi Panda 3: Dragon Hunter, a beautiful MMORPG that offers very little in the gameplay department

Taichi Panda 3: Dragon Hunter recently opened the floodgates for its public beta release. This essentially means any and everyone can now download the title on the Play Store in order to see its MMORPG gameplay in action. While there is no doubt that this is a beautiful game, the lack of any useful markers on the world map forces you to use the all too convenient auto-play button to progress. Essentially this is yet another mobile MMO that plays itself.
