Google Trips is one of the hidden gems of Google's arsenal of apps. What started as a small app that manages your flight and hotel reservations is now nearly a full-blown travel planner with essential tips on how to get around and what you need to know about the city/country you're going to, management for many reservation types, saved places that sync with Google Maps, discounts and offers on various activities, and a complete list of places to visit with ratings and reviews from the Maps community.
It's the latter part that's getting updated now with one small, but handy, addition. Read More
It's been a full seven months since Google last updated its Blogger app, but the time has not been wasted. The new version ushers in a larger interface tailored for tablets. Improvements to the compose screen should also make poking out posts easier on that larger display.

- Performance improvements
- Minor bug fixes

Aside from these additions, some of the Play Store comments indicate that it also fixes a number of annoyances, adding the option to load more than 20 posts, better publishing, and improved settings. Read More
