Chromecast Screen Casting Support Expands To The Sony Xperia Z3v, Z2, Z2 Tablet, And Z3 Tablet Compact [Updated]

Chromecast's screen casting feature works on a limited number of devices, but that list is gradually growing. For now, Sony appears to have cut to the front of the line of handsets waiting to get support. At the beginning of this month, the Chromecast gods smiled favorably upon the Xperia Z3 and the Z3 Compact.

Now at the end of the month, that attention is being poured upon the Xperia Z3v, Z2, and Z2 Tablet.

Duolingo Adds Beta Support For Danish And Irish Languages In The Latest App Update

Irish is hard. Like, really, really hard - as someone who can generally fake his way through Latin-based languages, I was completely lost when I went to Ireland and found that all the road signs were in what I had previously thought of as "Gaelic." It's a good thing that English was also on the signs. But if you're interested in learning it (or if your Republic of Ireland education demands that you do) you can now get some practice in Duolingo, along with Danish.

First Google Admin Update Since 2013 Brings Shared PIN Support And Easy Account Switching [APK Download]

Google Admin has recently received its first update of the year. If you aren't the administrator for a Google for Work account, then there's nothing here for you to sink your teeth into. But there are a few new features here for people on the management side of things.

Official Greyhound Lines Android App Arrives At The Google Play Terminal

Sometimes buses arrive a little late. Depending on where you live, they occasionally even arrive on time. Greyhound has now released an official Android app, after having replicated this experience pretty well. It's not necessarily a problem to wait until Android and iOS have been around for several years before making an app, but with Greyhound having launched one for its BoltBus line half a year ago, this release does feel a little behind schedule.

Square Enix Releases Secret Of Mana For $9, Sets A New Standard For Awful Game Icons [Updated]

Update #2: Before continuing, recognize that this post was written with my tongue firmly in cheek. I intended for it to be humorous, but clearly I didn't articulate myself as well as I should have.

So let me clear things up. This is a mobile port of a classic, and it is absolutely worth your money. If you played the original and have longed to play it again, download this. If you love Square Enix ports, download this.

The Many Faces Of Google's Hamburger Navigation Drawer

It goes without saying for most Android enthusiasts that the side-navigation drawer is a hot point of contention right now. With the introduction of material design, Google emphasized information hierarchy heavily, giving advice in its design specifications on how to arrange just about everything, including side navigation. According to the specifications (and Googler Roman Nurik), the "correct" behavior for the side drawer is to slide in as a sheet of paper over the entire canvas, including the app bar or toolbar.
