Adding And Editing Places In Google Maps Now Available Worldwide

If you're part of the Google Maps Local Guides program, you've probably received an email in the past day telling you that editing and adding places is now available worldwide. But if you're a real Local Guides participant, then you must have noticed this several weeks ago.

See, when Maps tells you that you can add a missing place, fill out more information for an existing place, and edit wrong details, that used to come with an asterisk that only those of us unlucky enough to live in some countries knew: these options were only accessible in about 87 countries and territories.

[Update: APK Download] Google Project Fi Updates Fix Data Toggle Bug, Allow Users To Block Incoming Calls

Google's Fi mobile virtual network allows users an impressive amount of fine grain control when it comes to selecting their data allowances. That being the case, it's especially important for users on low tiers to be aware of said usage, and to limit their data consumption when they stray away from the Wi-Fi homestead. A bug in the system created a problem there: it sometimes kept the GSM and/or LTE connection active if a user turned the data toggle off while still on Wi-Fi.

New NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet Pops Up At The FCC

NVIDIA launched the original SHIELD Tablet nearly two years ago in 2014, then it refreshed the device with a lower price point at the end of 2015 as the Tablet K1. However, it has yet to mention a true successor to the tablet. A new NVIDIA device has just hit the FCC, and it looks like a new SHIELD Tablet, if the documents are to be believed.

Multiplayer Building Platformer 'Ultimate Chicken Horse' Comes To The SHIELD TV And SHIELD Tablet For $10

While the likes of Activision and EA keep spinning their wheels with endless iterations and only a few modest twists on age-old genres, indie developers continue to outclass them with a fraction of the resources. For example: Ultimate Chicken Horse. Not only does this Kickstarter-funded platformer embrace local multiplayer (something that seems completely alien to AAA publishers these days), it tasks players with building the stage itself before the action begins, combining elements of Minecraft and Mario.

AT&T's New GoPhone, The LG Phoenix 2, Has Marshmallow And Only Costs $100

I like budget phones. I especially like those that still let me run the latest version of Android. It looks like AT&T's upcoming GoPhone from LG may be one to add to that list.

Google Is Banning Payday Loan Ads From AdWords, And Payday Loan Shills Are Out In Full Force To Complain

If you've never heard of payday loans, consider yourself lucky. They're an absolutely vile form of lending with annual interest rates that often creep over 1000%. Until now, Google has allowed these companies to advertise their services on its AdWords platform. Effective July 13th, you won't see ads for these services from Google. Believe it or not, there are people who think publicly defending this industry is a good idea, and they're all over the comments on Google's post.

NVIDIA Announces Android 6.0.1 Update For SHIELD Tablet, Marshmallow Still MIA For US LTE Version

NVIDIA started rolling Marshmallow out to the original SHIELD tablet a few months ago after getting the K1 up to date late last year, and now the company is moving the SHIELD to the latest and greatest version. The v4.1 update from 6.0 to 6.0.1 is rolling out now with emoji, security patches, and more. Well, unless you have the more expensive US 32GB LTE SHIELD. Then you're still stuck on Lollipop for some reason.

Republic Wireless Brings Its A Game: New GSM Partner And Plenty Of Modern Devices To Choose From Starting July

I never thought there would be a day when I'd know this much about US carriers and MVNOs, but this is what happens when you work on a US-based site like Android Police. Republic Wireless though comes a lot less often on our radar, and I just discovered why. Until now, the MVNO only had a couple of devices to choose from. Literally, a couple: the Motorola Moto G (3rd Gen) and Moto E (2nd Gen). It also seems to be ahead of its times, relying on Wi-Fi calling and piggy-backing on Sprint's network when Wi-Fi isn't available.

But things are about to improve by a few leaps and bounds for Republic Wireless.
