[Update: Added sorting] Google Play Movies v4.8 prepares to enable 4K upgrades, likely making them free [APK Teardown]

[Update: Added sorting] Google Play Movies v4.8 prepares to enable 4K upgrades, likely making them free [APK Teardown]

Google added 4K movies to its library back in late 2016, following the launch of the Chromecast Ultra. Since then, many people — myself included — came to realize that there was one big oversight: It's not possible to upgrade your existing HD movies to 4K. There was no upgrade pricing or even an option to remove a movie from your account and then purchase it again in 4K at full price. As it turns out, that issue will be rectified soon: Google is bringing upgrades to Play Movies, and it looks like they will be free.

'Purchased Apps' is a convenient way to view every app and game you've ever bought [APK Download]

Showing you an easily sortable list of which apps you've purchased is one of the things the Play Store does not do.

Update Notes for Photos, Play Store, Keep Notes, and more (October 8th, 2018)

Update Notes for Photos, Play Store, Keep Notes, and more  (October 8th, 2018)

Every week, I examine somewhere in the neighborhood of a hundred app updates while looking for changes. The most interesting things turn into APK Teardowns or Download posts. Many of the remaining updates are unremarkable, amounting to a few bug fixes, routine updates to libraries, or even just pixel-level adjustments to layouts and images. However, there are usually a few updates that land somewhere in between. I don't want to spam readers with dozens of short posts, but I hate to ignore things that people might want to know about, so I'm going to wrap up the leftovers for a little weekend reading and call it Update Notes.
