A new version of Google's Gboard is rolling out today to the beta channel with one interesting feature in tow and plenty of small interface tweaks. The biggest change is an incognito mode that appears when typing in Chrome's incognito mode, but there is more to discuss so let's jump right in. Read More
For the past year, every note I've had to make with my husband and every list we've had to write has been saved in Google Keep. The app is easy to use and powerful enough to take care of all of our organization needs, but the feature that we have missed in our daily use is an undo/redo functionality. It's a pretty basic one and the first time we looked for it and realized it wasn't there, we were quite dumbfounded. The convenience of not having to manually undo/redo something is very important, but it's even more crucial when you inadvertently delete something you shouldn't have. Read More
Last month, Microsoft introduced "the next generation of Skype." The highlight features were Snapchat-like stories, a revamped user interface, and support for "add-ins" that extend the app's functionality. But the update wasn't popular with everyone, and Microsoft has implemented a few changes in response to feedback. Read More
A new version of the Daydream VR app is rolling out today, and it's more than just a bug fix. Google says the Daydream Home interface has been tweaked for better content discovery, and the controller should be less annoying in several ways. If you don't want to wait, we've got the APK all set for you to sideload. Read More
Following an early access test for the Galaxy S8, Google has now released a new station for users of Google Play Music: New Release Radio.

Virtua Tennis Challenge is the latest Sega game to be added to the Sega Forever classic games collection. Like all Sega Forever games, Virtua Tennis Challenge is free-to-play with advertisements and contains a single in-app purchase of $1.99 that removes said ads. This gives players a way to try the game without going out of pocket. What is funny is this appears to be biting Sega in the butt, as the reviews so far have not been kind at all. Read More
When Minecraft exploded on the scene I was one of the countless people who assumed it would just be a fad. We were all wrong, and the game has sold more copies than any other game except Tetris. It's so popular that Microsoft put up $2.5 billion to acquire the game's developer Mojang. Part of the game's strength has been catering to kids and adults alike, and it does that through several different games on various platforms. Minecraft: Story Mode arrived on Android a couple of years ago and has been immensely popular. Fans of that game will be thrilled to hear that the sequel has just been launched. Read More
Last month, Fandango added Android Pay support when checking out inside its app and provided a promo code for $3 off all purchases. That offer was said to last until July 5, but it looks like there's a new one and it's even better.
Now you get $5 off every purchase for movie tickets you make on Fandango if you check out with Android Pay and enter promo code AndroidPay3. This code will only work through July 19, but the promotion says that a new code will be provided every week for the rest of the month so there should be a new one soon after. Read More
IFTTT keeps getting more powerful with time thanks to the addition of plenty of services that normally don't talk to each other but are made to do so thanks to its applets and automations. The latest to join the fold is popular — albeit recently very controversial — ride sharing service Uber.
The Uber channel on IFTTT isn't as capable as most others since it only provides Triggers and not Actions. So you can't have your ride automatically requested or canceled based on something else happening, but what you can do is trigger another service when your ride arrives, starts, or ends, and you even have the option to specify exact locations for pickup and drop-off for the trigger to work.
