Milk Music Hits v1.1, Brings Improved Sound Quality And Support For The S3 Mini

If Samsung's streaming music app has become your go-to source for all things audio, then that means two things: you're part of some exclusive club of Samsung owners that has been given access to the app because your phone is cool enough, and you actually care about Milk updates. Unfortunately, only a portion of this update concerns users who are already part of the aforementioned club:

What's New

  • Support for S3 Mini
  • Improvements in sound quality
  • Bug fixes and stability improvements

For those of you already streaming with Milk (that sounds funny), you should hear an audible improvement in the quality of your tunes...hopefully, anyway.

British Airways App Finally Gets A Proper Redesign With v3.0 Release

As one of the world's largest airlines, you'd expect BA to be on top of its Android app - oh man, who am I kidding: like most airlines, BA had an absolute crapfest of an Android app for years, and now it's finally gotten around to making it not look so god-awful.

The British Airways app's v3.0 update looks vaguely modern, I mean, it has a hamburger navigation slideout menu. So that's good.

A report out of The Information today claims that as early as this summer, Google will begin selling low-cost, commercial-grade Wi-Fi equipment to small and medium size businesses to greatly improve the level of connectivity they offer their customers, as well as that of the business itself.

Paid Google Play Newsstand Content Comes To France And Germany

The Google Play Newsstand Android app is pretty and all, but without the ability to subscribe to magazines, it's little more than a dumbed down pseudo-RSS reader. So it's a pretty good thing Google is rolling out access to the digital magazines to more countries. By now, residents in France and Germany should have access to the Newsstand content available in Google Play.

Facebook Is Working On A Way To Share Music, TV, And Movies Using Your Mic On Android And iOS

In an effort to further diversify the content of status updates (which consist 115% of political arguments and babies being cute), Facebook is working on a way to help users share what they're listening to with others. No, the social network won't turn into a file-sharing site, but it should at least help friends give some attention to the same artists or performers you enjoy.

PSA: eBay Hacked Two Months Ago On A Large Scale, All Users Need To Change Passwords

eBay isn't for everyone, but with such a steady stream of good deals on gadgets, there's a reason to have paid the site a visit lately.

With today's leak of many of the LG G3's specifications in an internal presentation, it seems all but confirmed at this point that the company's new flagship will sport a 5.5" QHD display. That's big. Like, really big. That's only two tenths of an inch smaller than the display on the Note 3, the current phablet of choice.

This, understandably, has some people hesitant: why is LG going so big with the G3?

Upcoming SingStar App Will Let Players Use Their Smartphones As Microphones On PS3 And PS4

WARNING: The following Android Police story contains Carly Rae Jepsen's Call Me Maybe.

Music games are great for parties with close and consenting friends who won't judge you when you completely destroy that one riff in Down on the Corner. But they do have one failing: you can't play them without all the plastic instrument accessories, making spontaneous sessions at a friend's place something of a chore.

The creators of Sony's SingStar series have found a solution that will make you say, "why didn't I think of that?" The forthcoming PlayStation 4 edition of SingStar probably won't change the karaoke game's winning formula, but it will let you install a companion app on your Android phone and use said phone like a tiny, rectangular microphone.
