British Airways App Finally Gets A Proper Redesign With v3.0 Release

As one of the world's largest airlines, you'd expect BA to be on top of its Android app - oh man, who am I kidding: like most airlines, BA had an absolute crapfest of an Android app for years, and now it's finally gotten around to making it not look so god-awful.

The directive is being headed by Google's Access team, the group behind Google Fiber. The team's goals aren't detailed at great length, but here's what I was able to gather.

Paid Google Play Newsstand Content Comes To France And Germany

The Google Play Newsstand Android app is pretty and all, but without the ability to subscribe to magazines, it's little more than a dumbed down pseudo-RSS reader. So it's a pretty good thing Google is rolling out access to the digital magazines to more countries. By now, residents in France and Germany should have access to the Newsstand content available in Google Play.

Facebook Is Working On A Way To Share Music, TV, And Movies Using Your Mic On Android And iOS

In an effort to further diversify the content of status updates (which consist 115% of political arguments and babies being cute), Facebook is working on a way to help users share what they're listening to with others. No, the social network won't turn into a file-sharing site, but it should at least help friends give some attention to the same artists or performers you enjoy.

How Big Is LG's 5.5" QHD Monster, The G3? Maybe Not As Big As You'd Guess [Size Comparison Mockup]

With today's leak of many of the LG G3's specifications in an internal presentation, it seems all but confirmed at this point that the company's new flagship will sport a 5.5" QHD display. That's big. Like, really big. That's only two tenths of an inch smaller than the display on the Note 3, the current phablet of choice.

Upcoming SingStar App Will Let Players Use Their Smartphones As Microphones On PS3 And PS4

WARNING: The following Android Police story contains Carly Rae Jepsen's Call Me Maybe.

Music games are great for parties with close and consenting friends who won't judge you when you completely destroy that one riff in Down on the Corner. But they do have one failing: you can't play them without all the plastic instrument accessories, making spontaneous sessions at a friend's place something of a chore.

The creators of Sony's SingStar series have found a solution that will make you say, "why didn't I think of that?" The forthcoming PlayStation 4 edition of SingStar probably won't change the karaoke game's winning formula, but it will let you install a companion app on your Android phone and use said phone like a tiny, rectangular microphone.

[New Game] MacGyver Deadly Descent Arrives In Play Store, Is Presumably Constructed From Chewed Gum, String, And Paperclips

Readers of a certain age may remember when MacGyver was a show on TV and not just a campy way to refer to tinkering with junk to make neat stuff. Now you can take on the role of MacGyver in the official MacGyver Deadly Descent game. It is unclear if you get to build an ultralight plane out of an old outboard motor, pipes, and a tarp, but there are plenty of puzzles to solve.
