[Another One Bites The Dust] Google Is Ending Support For The Catalogs Android App On August 15th

Another day, another cancelled Google product. Try to sound surprised as I report that the Google Catalogs Android app will go the way of the dodo on August 15th. Too difficult? I understand. I couldn't muster up any shock either. Catalogs scratches a very niche itch, one Google was willing to address on tablets but never bothered with on smartphones. While it's true that some people have installed the app, the vast majority of Googlers probably never knew it existed.

[New App] BBQScreen Android Client Beta Launches Alongside A Major Update To BBQScreen Remote Control

Screen mirroring on Android is still a bit of a hit-and-miss prospect. Plenty of issues can arise from environmental factors like network congestion, to the type of device being used (*ahem*, Tegra). A few months ago, we covered a recent entrant in this market, BBQScreen by XpLodWilD and nebkat. The app was able to deliver a pretty consistent 25 fps from several types of devices over WiFi, Bluetooth, or USB. Unfortunately, several bugs and incompatibilities plagued some users, but the developers have been working hard to remedy many of those issues.

[New App] Popular iOS 'Transit' App Finds Its Way Into The Play Store, Makes Comparing Routes A Breeze

One of Android's strengths is that its built-in navigation software is top notch, but that doesn't mean we have to use it. There are alternatives that make it easier to discover new places and come up with ways to get between them more quickly. Transit isn't a replacement for Google Maps, but it's a nice tool to have in your belt when trying to get from point A to point B.

Aviate Launcher Review: One Of The Most Powerful Alpha Products I've Ever Used

Aviate Launcher, if you haven't heard of it, is a new home screen replacement that looks to offer you information right when you need it and which is, at the time of writing, in the middle of an invite-only alpha period.

After receiving my invitation recently, I was anxious to take the launcher for a spin. I have no doubt it will improve as it progresses toward a broad launch, and there are a few drawbacks, but it is already one of the best alpha products I've ever used.
