Fly Delta update promises to make air travel easier with automatic check-ins [APK Download]

Air travel is not an enjoyable experience, at least for most people. Part of what makes flying so stressful is having to remember to check-in ahead of time. Then you have to make sure you've downloaded your boarding card correctly. At least we don't have to print them off anymore, I suppose, but it could still be easier.

Luckily, Delta agrees, and the latest update to its app introduces automatic check-ins, aiming to make the process that little less painful. The new feature has been available on iOS for the last few days, and now it's landed on Android. As of version 4.6, the app will automatically check you in 24 hours before your flight and send you a notification to confirm.

BBC iPlayer Radio app updated to support Android Auto [APK Download]

If you've ever sampled the BBC's excellent radio output, there's one app you really need in your life: BBC iPlayer Radio. It's a one-stop shop for all BBC radio shows, from sport to comedy to current affairs, and while the app may have its quirks, it's still a mostly good experience on Android.

The latest update to the app includes support for Google's in-car OS Android Auto (as well as Apple CarPlay), so you can more easily and safely listen to your favorite shows while you're behind the wheel. According to the BBC, 22 million people listen to its radio shows when driving, and a good number of those are likely to have Android Auto installed in their cars, so this will be good news for many.

WhatsApp now rolling out live location sharing

Live location sharing is pretty popular. Google Maps added it back in March, followed by Facebook Messenger the same month and Snapchat in June. Given that Messenger has had it for a few months, it makes sense that the feature would eventually make its way to Facebook-owned WhatsApp.
