Samsung's 'Good Lock' App Brings A Crazy Alternative UI To Your GS7's Lock Screen, Notifications, And Quick Settings

The design of Samsung's system UI hasn't changed much in the last few years, except when it comes to cosmetic things like icons and colors. There's a whole theme store that can alter that stuff. In the Galaxy Apps store, there's a new app called Good Lock that goes further by enabling an "advanced system UI" on the Galaxy S7. It's really bonkers.

Operation Dracula Is A New 'Bullet Hell' Shooter From Crescent Moon Games

How many bullets do you like to see in your top-down shooters? If you answered "a reasonable number," then Operation Dracula is not for you. The latest game published by Crescent Moon Games contains lots of snappy chiptune music, multiple characters, and a totally unreasonably number of bullets. Thus, a "bullet hell" shooter.

Photos v1.17 Enables Non-Destructive Photo Editing, Hints At Motorola Promo, Smart Rotation Recommendations, And A New Launcher Icon [APK Teardown + Download]

An update to the Google Photos app just rolled out, bringing the current version number up to v1.17. This release is pretty straightforward with just one notable change: photos can now be edited in a non-destructive fashion. In other words, you can make changes to a picture and still return to the original version if you like. That feature alone is certainly enough to make this a worthy upgrade, but a teardown provides some good clues about features that are probably coming in the next couple of releases, assuming they're not already here.

[Update: APK For Android N] Android Wear v1.5 Adds Proper Support For Marshmallow's Doze Mode [APK Download]

When Android 6.0 landed, it brought a big new battery-saving feature called Doze mode. While it was great at reining in known troublemakers like social network apps and misbehaving games, Doze had a bad habit of knocking out apps with genuinely important roles to play. One such app was Android Wear. Today, a new update to the Wear companion app adds awareness of Doze Mode and prompts users to add it to the protected list.

Stitcher Radio Podcast Manager Updated With Variable Speed Playback (But Only For Marshmallow) And Bug Fixes

If you listen to a lot of podcasts, you probably spend at least ten hours or more every week getting through them. A common feature of podcast playback tools is the option to speed up playback, allowing at least some users to get through these almost entirely spoken-word programs more quickly. Popular Android podcast manager Stitcher now includes this option... but oddly, only for devices running Android 6.0 or later. The tool can speed up playback to 1.25x, 1.5x, or 2x (which is insanely fast). It can also slow playback by half.

Other changes in this version (3.5.5 on my Nexus 6) are mostly bug fixes, notably including a major bug for Wi-Fi detection on Marshmallow phones and tablets.
