Cerberus 3.0 Update Goes Stable With Material Design And Plenty Of New Anti-Theft Features

There are updates, and then there are updates. For Cerberus, version 3.0 is the latter. It gets the app ready for Android 5.0 by covering it with pretty materials. Well, as pretty as this particularly unflattering app is going to get.

Cerberus still consists mostly of menus, but now the action bar is very red, a hamburger icon sits in the top left corner, and a sidebar (redesigned since the last time we took a look at the beta) now pulls out over every other part of the interface.

Google Publishes 'Live Channels For Android TV' App Into The Play Store, But So Far Not Much Is On

While it's possible to create a TV platform that doesn't deal with live channels, smart TVs and game consoles alike generally try to integrate the content as best they can. Google intends to as well. The company made an effort with Google TV, and these days it's trying again with Android TV.

Today Google has released an app for accessing live channels into the Play Store. The "Live Channels for Android TV" app is unsurprisingly incompatible with phones and tablets, and while it shows up as already installed on one of our Nexus Players, it doesn't appear anywhere on the device.

[Update: 4.4 Support Is Back] Facer Gets Updated With Material Design, Now Only Works With Wear 5.0

Update: Looks like Google let the developer restore 4.4 support to the existing app. So...you can have Facer again.

When it comes to rolling your own watchfaces, few apps do it better than Facer. It's crazy-customizable, feature rich, and easy to use. I figure at this point most hardcore Wear users are sporting it (or have at least tried it out), and today it's getting a pretty significant update.

DeviantArt Gets An Official Android App, Awesome Digital Resources And Terrible Sonic Fanart Are Now On Your Phone

DeviantArt. Is there anywhere else that you can find such a wretched hive of scum and villainy? Well yes, if we're talking about the Internet, there certainly is. But none of them have quite the same air of desperate hipness and needy self-approval as the long-running digital art gallery and quasi social network. Now if you'd like to browse through millions of pieces of user-submitted art or manage your own profile, you can do so with the official DeviantArt Android app.

Shazam 5.1 Arrives Sporting A Material Look, Holding Hands With Spotify, And Knowing The Latest Trends

For a big, bald genie like Shazam, keeping up with the latest trends can be a struggle. But—crap, this is embarrassing.

Ahem. For a music identification and discovery app like Shazam, it's important to keep up with whatever's currently trending. So the latest version has received a brand new redesign that focuses on just that. The new homescreen places an emphasis on what's popular, what people are listening to in your city, and what your friends consider dope (through Facebook support).

[Update: APK Download] Google Hangouts Update Adds Confirmed Numbers, Video Filters, Contextual Tools, And Stickers

Google just announced its biggest update to the Hangouts Android app in some time, introducing a bevvy of features not seen before on the platform. In terms of utility, the biggest addition is probably confirmed phone numbers: like competing SMS-style message services, this will allow people who know you to search for your Google+/Hangouts profile with your cell phone number. It's an addition to the app that will be particularly useful to international users, who are used to this kind of contact lookup.

Nokia Drives The HERE Navigation App Into The Play Store, Leaves It Parked In Beta

For years, Google Maps has been a compelling reason to own an Android device, but it's not the only mobile navigation service out there worth your time. Nokia's HERE service has built a name for itself, attracting users thanks to its presence on competing platforms and a number of strengths, such as the ability to store maps for offline viewing/navigation and the presence of data in countries Google essentially considers the middle of nowhere.

Camera FV-5 Becomes One Of The First Camera Apps In The Play Store With Support For Android 5.0's New APIs [Update]

There's been much talk about how Android 5.0 will finally do some good for mediocre Android cameras. The new camera APIs allow apps to get RAW images off the sensor and process them into JPEGs, but where are all the apps to take advantage of it? There's L Camera, which is still in testing on GitHub, but Camera FV-5 has become the first app in the Play Store to support the new Lollipop camera features.
