Hype Machine Drops From $3.99 To Completely Free On The Play Store

Hype Machine isn't your typical music discovery service. It relies on music blogs to aggregate the most recent and talked about music tracks across the internet and from various genres. You can only listen to songs when the original blog has posted a link to SoundCloud, Bandcamp, or Official.fm for example, but the track itself isn't hosted on Hype Machine.

The service is more geared toward the music blogging scene, providing links to the articles where each song was shared and letting you favorite blogs and users to follow what they've been posting. Essentially, it's a heavily curated music social network and it works very well for those who like that approach.

Haystack TV Gets Major Update: Now Shows Streamed TV Stations Alongside Broadcast TV

One of the biggest problems with TV news is that if you're not interested in a particular story – say, sports or celebrities – you have no option but to sit through it. Haystack TV aims to solve that by turning the news into personalized streams which are curated through artificial intelligence, big data, and editorial decision-making. The idea being that if you're especially interested in finance or international affairs, you can create a TV channel just about that.

In addition to being available through the browser and as a downloadable application for most major smartphone and Internet TV platforms, it is also available for Google's nascent Android TV platform, which can be found running on the latest-and-greatest Sony Smart TVs.

Project Fi App Updated With Data Usage Widget, Call Forwarding Toggle, And More

Google's in-house Project Fi has a great app compared to what you get from other carriers. Not that it would be hard to make that happen, but it is pretty good. It's getting even better today with an update (version I.2.1) that adds a new widget and better control over call forwarding.

Google Is Preparing To Test A New Travel App Sometime Next Week

Google is apparently reaching out to Maps explorers with word of a new app heading down the pipeline.

The email invite calls on recipients to be the first to try a new app for travelers. There isn't much in the way of details, other than the availability for both Android and iOS. But given the recent launch of Google Destinations, travel is clearly an area of interest for the company.

Sneaky Platformer Stealth Inc. 2: A Game Of Clones Is Now Available For The SHIELD TV And SHIELD Tablet

The title for the sequel to Stealth Inc. is a pun on HBO's Game of Thrones fantasy series. Perhaps that's why NVIDIA published it to the Play Store this week: with the next season starting on Sunday, there's no better chance to capitalize on at least a few dozen people mistakenly putting the wrong search phrase into Google. But underneath its pop culture allusions there's a solid platform-puzzle game, and now it's available for the SHIELD Android TV and SHIELD Tablet (sorry, SHIELD Portable owners... and every other Android user, I guess). It's $10 with no in-app purchases.

The Stealth Inc.

Microsoft Translator Inches Ever Closer To Google Translate With New Image Translate And System-Wide Translation On Marshmallow

When it first launched last summer, Microsoft Translator had some potential but a lot of catch-up to do with Google's own Translate. No offline mode, no natural conversation mode, no Android Wear app, and many other missing features made me refrain from recommending it when I compared it against Translate. But Microsoft has been updating its app, bridging the gap with each new version, adding all of these features and more like Klingon support and a kickass Android Wear integration. The only major capability that was still missing from Translator's arsenal was image translation and that's finally here.

Version 2.16.82, which is already live in the Play Store (and on APK Mirror) can load images, automatically detect languages, and overlay the translation into the language of your choice on top of each element.

Facebook Messenger Now Has Group Call Feature, Global Rollout Has Started

Facebook's been making some big improvements to Messenger recently, and the latest is no different: group calling is coming, with the global rollout having started yesterday on both iOS and Android. As is now usual with Messenger, the web app (on both facebook.com and messenger.com) will probably get the update at some point in the future.

Group calling works as you'd expect: tap on a group chat and, if the feature has rolled out to you yet, there will be a phone icon in the app bar. Tap this and it will bring up a dialogue asking who you'd like to include in the group call.

[Deal Alert] 16 HandyGames Titles Are Down To $0.16 On The Play Store In Many Countries

HandyGames likes to celebrate its birthday by giving you gifts. Well honestly, they're loaded gifts because when you take into consideration all the IAPs, they're going to end up making HandyGames lots and lots of money. But we're not ones to judge your IAP spending sprees or HandyGames' sneaky generosity scheme.

For its 16th birthday, the publisher is discounting 16 of its premium paid games from around $2.99 to just $0.16. And the offer isn't limited to the US, you should see it all around the world. For example, it's down to 300LBP ($0.15) for me in Lebanon, even though the lowest possible item price is 1500LBP, so HandyGames must have made a special agreement to discount it below that.
