[Deal Alert] Get A Free Google Cardboard VR Viewer Courtesy Of Conan O'Brien And AT&T (US Only)

If you were to look back through all the articles that I have written since Artem begged me to start writing for Android Police (actually, it may have been the other way around) you would notice that almost half of them are deal alerts. The reason why, is that I genuinely love a good bargain. Getting new gadgets is great, but getting new gadgets at a discount is awesome! The deal I'm sharing with you today is the best kind of discount.

Steam App Updated To v2.0 With Semi-Material UI, Battery Use Fixes, And More [APK Download]

The Steam app for Android has been rocking the same ancient UI since it launched years ago, but that changes today. The app has jumped from v1.1 all the way to 2.0 and it comes with a revamped UI. It's being called "material," but I don't know if I'd go that far. It's still a vast improvement over the old app.

The Official Medium App Is Out Of Beta And Live In The Play Store For All

[No] Growing Conspiracy On Facebook Claims NFC Stickers On Smartphone Batteries Are Government Surveillance Devices

Sometimes, people are willing to believe some incredible things about technology because they have an understandably low interest in the inner workings of said technology. It happens. Sometimes, though, these people are willing to believe some really dumb shit. (No, Uncle John, they have not finally discovered a way to create a perpetual motion device that the oil companies don't want you to know about, and I do not want to invest in it.)

Today's classic case of "I read it on the internet, therefore: it is true" comes from Facebook, as do many of the internet's best conspiracies these days.

IF Hits Version 1.4 While DO Button, DO Camera, And DO Note All Go 2.0 With Unlimited Recipes And Other New Features

IFTTT updates DO come in sets these days. Though the developers separated DO Button, DO Camera, and DO Notes into individual apps, they tend to release new versions at around the same time so that none of them get jealous. Some of the latest changes are similar across the three DO apps, such as the inclusion of unlimited recipes. Other tweaks are unique. So let's pay attention to what the updates DO and see why each app is special in its own way.

IF

Version 1.4 of IF places recipe recommendations in your feed that are tailored to suit your interests. They also appear if you're creating an account for the first time and haven't yet told IFTTT anything about yourself.

Google Shoots First, Asks Questions Later With AirDroid After Broad Facebook Trademark Complaint

Last night, we received a tip that the Play Store listing for AirDroid, a popular app that allows users to see notifications, respond to messages, and manage content from their Android devices on a desktop, had been removed from the Play Store. The listing was directing to Google's infamous "Not Found" page.

We reached out to the AirDroid team who, at the time, were still trying to figure out what had happened. As it turns out, Google had removed the listing after a mass-complaint from Facebook. The sweeping set of complaints picked up tons of apps with "WhatsApp" in their names, but also apps - like AirDroid - that simply mentioned WhatsApp in the description.

Google Calendar Web And API Now Support Adding File Attachments To Events Via Google Drive

No longer a labs option, file attachments in Google Calendar are going to the stable channel. A feature oriented towards shared events, this can allow you to share important information that can't be captured in a written description. It is live now on the web and the API is ready for use, which means we should see app developers taking advantage in the near future.

Google_Calendar

You'll see that "add attachment" option when creating a new calendar event, and when clicked you will see something like this:

Google_Calendar

That should look familiar if you've shared files on the web with any other Google product in the recent past.

SBK15 Is A Motorcycle Racing Sim That Should Please Superbike Fans, But Skimps On Features

Developer Digital Tales has been hyping its latest Superbike game for a few weeks, and today it's finally been released on Google Play. SBK15 is a simulator in the general sense, and it tries to bring a feeling of realism to its motorcycle races. The tracks are based on real tracks, the bikes are based on real bikes, and the riders are licensed likenesses of world championship racers, complete with authentic sponsor logos plastered to their helmets.

And don't get me wrong, SBK16 definitely has some good points. The graphics are appealing without being too taxing, the sense of speed is decent, and the tilt controls actually make sense in the context of leaning into a curve.

Perplexing Payment Product News: Google May Have Renamed Parts Of Wallet "Google Payments" But We're Not Sure

Gone to wallet.google.com recently? Notice anything... missing? Like most mentions of "Wallet"? If so, you're not the only one! In fact, if you go to payments.google.com, the same page launches. And if you go to your settings on that page, there is a hilariously confusing mix of references to both Google Wallet and Google Payments. For example: there's a toggle box for accepting Google Wallet to receive commercial transactions.
