The new Yahoo Mail app is made for one-handed grocery shopping

Yahoo Mail isn't quite as ubiquitous as it once was, but plenty of people use both the app and email service for their long-form communication needs in 2019. Today Yahoo is pushing out an entirely new version of the app, with modern focus on one-handed use with taller phones, faster access to attached files, and tools to help you save cash — plus a strange (but potentially useful) grocery coupon clipping tool that has nothing to do with email.

Android Auto, One, and TV pick up new logos as part of recent rebranding

Earlier this month, Google revealed its updated design language for the Android logo ahead of the Android 10 release. In addition to elevating the bugdroid (or at least its head) to the logo itself, new typography for the "android" text was also shown off.

[Update: Rolling out] Google tests a more compact Discover feed design with no topic bubbles

It's been over a year since Google started testing topic bubbles in the then-called-Feed, and many months since that design rolled out as part of the rebranded Discover. In the time since, we haven't noticed any major changes in the interface and we had almost started believing that server-side tests may have stopped on the app. But no, they've been resurrected (perhaps they never even died?) and are back now thanks to a new Discover that sheds off its signature topic bubbles.

Snapchat's redesigned Android app will be fully deployed by the end of 2019, according to CEO Evan Spiegel

Snapchat's Android redesign has been a long time in the making. Back in late 2017, Snap CEO Evan Spiegel promised a completely rebuilt Android app. The redesign could initially only be enabled with root access, though it's been possible to turn it on in the UI for many months now. Spiegel is now claiming that the rebuilt app will be fully deployed to all by the end of the year.

The most recent part of the UI to make the jump is the search interface.
