I'm sorry. Of course it didn't. But - wait! Don't leave yet. I have actual news to share with you on this oft-insufferable day of fools, and news from Saygus, no less. "It's probably just more excuses," you'd say, defeated and without hope. Well, uh, actually, you'd be right. So there's that.
Saygus set a shipping estimate of the end of March back in January, and I thought it was probable they'd unveil a very new and exciting list of reasons why they wouldn't be able to meet that estimate at some point very soon. As it turns out, "some point" was the afternoon of March 31st, also known as yesterday.
This is no April Fools joke: Verizon has updated the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge software pages with details of the Marshmallow OTAs for the two devices. They currently run Lollipop, so the update will be very welcome to S6 owners on Verizon; Samsung started to roll out Marshmallow for the S6 and S6 Edge in February, so Verizon isn't that far behind. It does come almost a month after Sprint initiated the update for their S6 and S6 Edge, though.
The update brings all the features you'd expect of a Galaxy device with Marshmallow. Now on Tap is there, as are on-demand permissions, which were both introduced as part of the overall 6.0 update from Google.
One of the most requested changes in the comment section of each WhatsApp article we post is an updated camera interface (well, beside GIF support). The app has been through lots of Material changes over the past year or so, from a complete UI overhaul to small icon and element modifications, but the built-in camera has always looked the same as it did several years ago. That's finally changed in version 2.16.4 of the app, and no, this isn't an April Fools.
Gone is the big Holo-blue shutter button and the old flash and switch camera icons, also gone is the upper box that said, Send to (Contact).
Many baseball fans—not to mention non-fans—know the R.B.I. Baseball franchise fondly remembered by NES console gamers as the first baseball title to include real MLB players. Major League Baseball has acquired the rights and revived it as a true premium game, in which the $4.99 upfront cost gets you the full experience. Ahead of the coming weekend's Opening Day, the 2016 reboot has hit the Play Store.
While last year's revision was fairly substantial, with realistic MLB stadiums, full team rosters, and a season mode, this year, the changes are far more modest. Beyond the customary update to each team's players and their ratings, all we get are some improvements to fielding actions that include dives and home run robberies along with vague promises of enhanced AI, a "reworked batting engine," and "reworked pitching strategy."
Of course, these are nothing to shake a stick at, but you may have to spend a lot of time with the game to know whether these changes are just bluster.
Jack Underwood, the developer of arguably the best calendar app on the Play Store, Today Calendar, has been working on his second app for a good while now - since the middle of last year, in fact. It's been available in beta since then, but Jack's just moved it to a general release, making it available for public download on the Play Store.
As Michael said in his initial look at the app last July, it's a writing app, but you won't find any of the extraneous options you might find in apps like Microsoft Word. Instead, it's purposely barebones, just letting you get on with the task in hand - writing.
BlackBerry is all about Android these days with the PRIV leading the charge. The company hasn't forgotten about BBM, though. The app has gotten a few significant updates since it came out, and today there's another major one with better notification control, proper support for Marshmallow permissions, and more. Plus, all privacy and control features are no longer behind the paywall.
LG is a company whose smartphone products have gone from bottom of the barrel to highly competitive in under four years. Once the butt of bad phone jokes in the early days of Android, the company has lifted itself up into prominence in particular with the G Series, the originator of that lineage being the Optimus G.
The original G was a model for the Nexus 4 - the glass front and back blended a fairly bold design with modern and high-end components. LG's software really wasn't quite there yet, but they quickly stepped up their game with the G2 in the following year, and in the eyes of many fans perfected that formula in the G3.
Opera serves the same role on Android that it fulfills on desktops, being that quirky browser that one or two people you know checked out a while back. There's that one guy who swears it's better than anything else out there.
