Google Calendar Gets A Set Of New Illustrations To Accompany Events In 30 Languages

Google Calendar 5.x is quite the visual experience. Sure, the relatively unorthodox way it goes about listing events rather than showing you a grid of dates may not feel as Calendar-y out of the box, but boy is it pretty. And now it's prettier. Google has added new illustration to accompany more of your events.

Jamba Juice Is Giving Out Free Android Mini Figurines If You Use Android Pay

Google never really promoted Wallet in all the years it existed and was capable of NFC payments, but at least it's trying with Android Pay. If you've got a Jamba Juice nearby, you can (maybe) get a free Android mini figurine if you pay with Android Pay. If you like Android and could go for a smoothy, it's a win-win.

BBC And NVIDIA Release An iPlayer App Exclusively For SHIELD Android TV Owners In The UK

iPlayer is a treat from the BBC to its viewers in the UK. The broadcasting network produces content, and it lets locals view them from the comfort of their mobile devices. Think of it as the relationship seemingly every other popular Internet streaming service has with the US, at least initially.

Now folks living on that small little island across the pond can also stream content to their Android TV, as long as it's a SHIELD box. NVIDIA has made an app, with the BBC's permission, exclusively for SHIELD Android TV.

Yup, it's an app that you can only use in a certain country on a particular device.

[Copy All The Things!] You Can Now Copy Changelogs And App Descriptions Using Android Play Store App

Earlier today, Kirill Grouchnikov, the face behind the Play Store Android app, detailed a set of relatively substantial design tweaks and RTL language support destined for an upcoming update. Unfortunately, the APK uploaded to APK Mirror shortly after did not seem to have the majority of these changes live just yet, but Kirill, who also announced his departure from the Google Play team, managed to sneak in one last parting gift.

And it's the best gift he could have possibly given us. Or at least me, considering I copy changelogs all day long for APKMirror.com. I think I now owe him 100 beautiful white roses.

Cloud Chasers Takes You On A Randomly Generated Steampunk Journey Through The Desert

In Cloud Chasers, you must travel across a vast desert to reach the promised land beyond, but it won't be an easy journey. This steampunk-style world is filled with rough terrain and hostile robots, not to mention deserts are pretty inhospitable to begin with. This game also has a socially motivated message, but it's handled gently.

Yahoo Mail 5.0 Now Rolling Out To Android Devices With A New Look, A Password-Free Sign-In Key, And The Ability To Manage Non-Yahoo Accounts

Yahoo Mail remains one of the company's biggest properties, and it's going all out with the release of version 5.0. This isn't just about a visual design, which we detailed when we got our hands on the beta. There are new features that can be found both in the app and on the web.

This release comes with the Yahoo Account Key, a way to sign-in without having to re-enter your password. Instead, it relies on push notifications sent to your mobile device. Just tap the button to get in. Hopefully someone else doesn't have your phone at the time.

Motorola Adds Stock Email App To The Play Store, Includes Screenshots Taken On Unannounced Droid Maxx 2

Gmail gained the ability to handle non-Google email accounts in Lollipop, but most OEMs still make their own stock email client. Motorola is no different, and now it's added that app to the Play Store so it can be updated regularly. As an added bonus, the screenshots of the updated app were apparently taken on a Droid Maxx 2, which hasn't been announced yet. Very subtle, guys.

Sonic Dash 2, A Free Endless Runner Based On The Sonic Boom Franchise, Is Now Live In The Play Store

When the best thing that you can say about the latest crop of a long-running video game property is that "the tie-in children's TV show isn't completely terrible," it's not a ringing endorsement. Such is the case with Sonic Boom: after nearly two decades of hit-and-miss remixes on the familiar Sonic formula, SEGA hit a real stinker with the almost universally-reviled Wii U/3DS dual release last year. The "hip" new designs for Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, and the rest of the gang might have been forgiven if the game itself hadn't been one of the worst entries in Sonic's 24-year catalog.

It's odd, then, that SEGA is continuing the "Sonic Boom" label with its latest mobile game, instead of relying on the tried-and-true classic version of sonic that appeals to the nostalgia crowd.

Tumblr's Latest Update Includes 'Sturdier, More Erect Pixels' And Much More In One Of The Best Changelogs You'll Ever See

Sure, Tumblr has seen better days. But for the Tumblr app, this could be a high watermark. I'm not sure what exactly their dev team was up to in the latest, presumably minor, update to their Android app. What I do know is that the jump from v4.7 to v4.8 brought with it the kind of changelog that should brighten your mood.

If you were worried about Android Marshmallow compatibility, don't worry; this update is already prepared for Tangerine. If you thought the underbelly had been neglected, once again your concerns have been addressed because Tumblr reports that the underbelly has been tickled.
