Apple Music For Android Will Launch "This Fall"

If you've not been watching Apple's WWDC 2015 keynote, I can't blame you (it's really long), but news just dropped that Apple's upcoming streaming music service - Apple Music - will be coming to Android. Eventually.

The press release for Apple Music says the service will launch at the end of June on iOS, OS X, and PC, but Android support won't arrive till an unspecified time in the fall of this year. So, some time between mid-September and the end of the year, basically.

Apple Music will cost $9.99 a month for an individual plan, but everybody gets a free 3-month trial to start.

SNK Releases A Deluxe, Paid Version Of 'Beast Busters Featuring KOF' That's Stripped Of The Annoying Free-To-Play Elements

Beast Busters may not be as well-known as some of SNK's other franchises (i.e. The King of Fighters and Metal Slug), but it's older than both. The series first appeared in 1989, and it has since been eclipsed by other entrants in the light gun shooter genre. Watching the trailer for Beast Busters featuring KOF Deluxe will probably have you thinking of The House of the Dead.

Beast Busters featuring KOF came to Android at the end of 2014 as a free-to-play title bogged down by an energy system and in-app purchases. What makes the new version deluxe? It costs $2.99 and, according to SNK, no longer requires any additional payments to complete.

AT&T Makes The Samsung Galaxy S6 Active Official, Available Starting June 12th

Well, this looks familiar. AT&T has finally acknowledged that the Galaxy S6 Active is a thing, and it's going to be selling it very soon. The GS6 Active does indeed look like the previously leaked images with the camo pattern on the back and physical buttons on the bottom. It looks like a bit of a cross between a Galaxy S5 and S6.

Google Mobile Search Adds Ten-Day Weather Forecasts

There are a lot of choices for weather apps on Android - you can see the best in Rita El Khoury's roundup from yesterday. But if you prefer to have as few apps on your phone as possible (because Windows RAM-saving behavior dies hard), Google has just improved the built-in weather function of its mobile search. Specifically, the Knowledge Graph function that shows you weather for a specific location now extends for ten days.

It's not a huge change, but it makes it easier to figure out the long-range forecast at a glance. The Search function even allows you to break down the day-by-day forecast by hour with a handy slider.

MX Player Fixes A Bunch Of Bugs And Adds Online Subtitle Downloads In The Latest Update

Android's default video capabilities leave a lot to be desired, so the Play Store has a small but thriving industry of third-party video players. MX Player has been one of the most dependable among them, and the latest update fixes a few bugs on Android 5.0+ devices and adds a few new features. The most notable is probably the new ability to upload and download subtitle files from the web. That's a big deal if you often watch videos in a language you can't speak - anime fans, ahem, accessing unavailable shows come to mind.

2015-06-07 16.57.46 2015-06-07 17.07.40 2015-06-07 16.59.42

The default function uses the language from your phone to search opensubtitles.org, either with the name of the video file or with a separate manual text search.
