LG G Pad 8.3 Google Play Edition Quick Look: The 'Just Right' Midsize Tablet You've Been Waiting For

There's no need for a full review of the new Google Play Edition of LG's G Pad 8.3 - you're familiar with the software thanks to LG's own Nexus 5 and other AOSP devices, and you can check out Cameron Summerson's review of the retail version of the G Pad 8.3 for a look at the hardware.

Google Maps 7.5 Gains Gmail Integration - See Hotel, Restaurant, And Flight Reservations Right Inside The App [APK Download]

Last night, Google started a slow rollout of the new Maps with version 7.5. Since the previous version was 7.4, we knew there had to be some key features that prompted the update - it couldn't just be a bug fixer. After thoroughly examining the UI, I was unable to find anything new.
