New 'Designed For Families' Google Play Program Will Showcase Kid-Friendly Apps And Games

Google plans to roll out a new Google Play program that places an emphasis on family-focused (i.e. kid-friendly) apps and games. This initiative will display pre-approved content under an experience the company is calling "Designed for Families." The goal is to point parents in the direction of software from the likes of Crayola and PBS Kids without exposing them to the flood of less age-appropriate content on display in the Play Store.

Microsoft Office Delve Shows You The Latest Changes To Shared Office 365 Documents And Contacts

Wouldn't it be nice if every international tech company was as accommodating to competing platforms as Microsoft? The company's Android support for the last year or so has been nothing short of amazing - it must make all twenty Windows Phone users really pissed off at Google for its lack of reciprocation.

Opera Mini Browser v8 Gets A Big Visual Overhaul, Private Tabs, High DPI Support, And More

Opera Mini has attracted millions of users for all sorts of reasons, but its appearance hasn't particularly been one of them. Frankly, the app has felt dated for years.

With version 8, that changes. The zippy little browser now has a look and feel that looks more at home on Android (which we've been able to experience for a few months now in beta). It's not #materialyolo, but it doesn't clash nearly as much with Lollipop as the prior release.

Twitter For Android Updated With Support For Embedded Retweets

A week ago, Twitter announced that it was updating its browser and mobile apps with support for embedded retweets — a new way for you to repost what someone else has said, while keeping their original tweet intact and adding your own comment without wasting a lot of characters. At the time, the iOS app got the update immediately, but Android users had to wait (or use Talon, which doesn't like seeing Android treated as a second-class citizen) to be able to send these new retweets.

NYTimes - Latest News App Receives Major Update With Material Design Makeover


A major update for a major news publication's Android application has dropped in the Play Store. The NYTimes - Latest News app has donned its new material design duds, and I have to say, it looks pretty good.  The new design is very clean and stark, with white backgrounds and menus standing in sharp contrast to black text and icons. It actually looks a lot like... well... a newspaper. You know, now that I think about it, that might have been intentional.

[Hands-On] WhatsApp Goes Material With Cool Animations, FABs, And Lots Of "Purty"

Good things happen when I'm asleep. Or driving. Or offline. It's a fact of life that I have gotten used to. So was the case with WhatsApp's latest update and I woke up today to dozens of email tips (thanks, everyone!) about the new Material Design overhaul the app has received. It's not like all of you were waiting with bated breath for this update, na-ah, or like we had not one, not two, but tens of comments on every article we wrote about WhatsApp in the past months clamoring for a Material makeover.

LG Announces Google Cast-Compatible Music Flow Wireless Speakers

You may remember a few months ago when Google announced its Cast platform was becoming an audio streaming standard. If so, you might also notice the lack of products that support it so far.
