Russia attempts to block Telegram with all the restrained composure of a bull in a china shop

The global availability of smartphones and the app stores that house their software makes it as easy for developers to share their work with users down the street as those living on the other side of the world. And while we tend to feel that broad access to software is almost always a good thing, not everyone is going to agree, and sometimes all it takes is one government getting upset about one app to cause some serious fallout. That's pretty much what we're seeing right now, as Russia makes moves against Telegram that are already having some serious consequences.

Google Camera mod update brings back HDR+ to Nexus phones [APK Download]

What makes the camera on Google's Pixel phones so good has more to do with the software than the hardware. Google's image processing is far ahead of its rivals, which is why it can boast a competitive Portrait Mode with only a single camera. Thanks to the Camera NX mod, it's possible to get similar results on many other phones, including non-Google ones.

Version 5.2 of the official Google Camera app was released last week, and it actually removes some functionality from 2015's Nexus 6P and 5X. They lose HDR+ (likely because the new version was built with Android P in mind, which neither of those phones will be getting) and Lens Blur (which has been replaced by Portrait Mode on the Pixels).

Google Play now tracks down which streaming service has the video you're looking for (as long as it's not Netflix) [APK Download]

“Well, maybe it's on Netflix. Um … did you check Hulu? What about Amazon?” While streaming services make it easy to dive right into your favorite shows, sometimes tracking down that program can be way more difficult than it needs to be.

How the heck are you supposed to keep track of where anything is? Today it's Google to the rescue, as the company starts sharing info on which streaming services carry the media you're searching for.
