Trillian For Android Upgraded To Version 2.0, Gets A Holo-Friendly UI Overhaul, New Emoticons, And More

Trillian has been around for quite a long time. This isn't a hip teen's chat client - it's their father's. No seriously, many of the people who used this IM client back when it was fresh are old enough to have children now. Trillian came to fame at a time when consolidating chat clients into one piece of software was almost a necessity on consumer desktops, as running several of the official messengers at once was such a memory hog.

[Hands-On] Ark Mail Can Pull Up The Social Network Profiles Of Anyone Who Emails You, It Just Isn't Very Good At It

We see new email clients enter the Play Store all the time, so what sets Ark Mail apart? This app's claim to fame is its ability to pull up the social profiles of anyone who sends you an email. This process currently requires users to hop out of their email app, do a web search, and filter through results that may or may not show the correct person. Ark Mail brings this entire process in-app, and it boasts that it will pull up precisely the right contact.

Google Just Bought Touch-To-Transfer App Company 'Bump'

You guys remember Bump? It's been a while since we've had a reason to discuss the app, but that changes today; Google just bought the company. For those who may not be familiar with Bump, it's an app that allows files, images, apps, and the like to be transferred from device to device by touching the two together. It was actually pretty popular a few years ago, before NFC and Android Beam (which, honestly, still doesn't work correctly half the time) came along.

[Poll] The 'Recently Updated' Section Of The Play Store App Has Changed From 7 To 3 Days – Is That Better?

A recent Play Store update to 4.3.10 cleaned up some rough edges and added a few minor features. Although, one of those features was contentious to say the least. The Recently Updated section of the My Apps page listed everything updated for the last week, which could be a long list for users with a lot of apps. It's not seven days anymore, though.

Chrome For Android 30 Beta Is Causing Device Reboots, But A Fix Is Already In The Works

A beta release is, by definition, and unfinished product. They're not always perfect - that's kind of the point. So it is with the latest beta version of Chrome for Android: many users are reporting that the latest build available on the Play Store is unexpectedly and repeatedly causing their devices to reboot.

[Tip] Get Faster Access To Turn-By-Turn Navigation In Google Maps

The refreshed Google Maps app is cool in a lot of ways, but it was a big change and we're still finding little tricks to make things smoother. Some users were annoyed that there is no longer a direct Navigation app icon, meaning more taps to actually start turn-by-turn navigation. There is a shortcut, though.

Hexage has been creating some of the best games on Android since early in the platform's run. It has a distinct style that has evolved through the years as Android acquired more graphical prowess. That leads us to the newest Hexage title, Reaper. This is a 2D hack-and-slash RPG with a casual style of gameplay and a ton of pizazz. Unlike some previous Hexage games, this one is not free-to-play.
