Android App Update

Feedly Mobile app updated for the 3 million Google Reader refugees

We still have plenty of time before Google Reader shuts down for good. Well, maybe not enough time for those who are dreading the day but the key is that as of July 1 Google Reader will be gone for good. We have seen plenty of alternatives come into the spotlight, however it seems as if one of those possibilities has stolen much of the spotlight. That one is Feedly and they have just announced some updates.

Google Play Movies update brings info card support on tablets

Google Play Movies has recently been updated and amongst the new features is one that will be available only for tablet users. The tablet specific change brings info card badges. Basically, those watching with the Play Movies app will now be able to press pause and get details about the movie. The information will include goodies such as details about the actors, related films and even what song happens to be playing in the movie.

Google Translate for Android update brings offline language packs

Google has announced the latest update for the Translate app on Android. The update is currently available from the Google Play Store and brings support for offline language translation. Basically, this means that you will now be able to get language translations without having a network connection. Of course, that is assuming you have downloaded the offline language pack prior to losing that connectivity.

Google Maps update brings live departure times and service alerts

Google has recently detailed an update that may benefit those in Salt Lake City, New York City and Washington DC. The update deals specifically with mass transit and means access to live departure times and live service alerts. The catch here, these two additions will not be available for all users. Basically, the departure times are for those in Salt Lake City and New York City and the service alerts will be for those in Washington DC.

Flipboard 2.0 unveiled ahead of release on Android

Flipboard version 2.0 has officially been announced. The disappointing part is that it has already been made available for iOS users as those rocking an Android device will have a few weeks to wait. The folks at Flipboard have said that version 2.0 will be available for Android users next month. Just in case you needed a bit of extra teasing, this update is being touted as a "major new edition."

SwiftKey update brings fixes and improved predictions

SwiftKey 4 landed in the Google Play Store back in late-February. That arrival had marked the end of a several month beta period. But perhaps more important for today -- the SwiftKey app has recently been updated. This update is not what we would describe as major, however it does have plenty of fixes. SwiftKey is now sitting at version 4.0.1 and it remains priced at $3.99.

Evernote for Android update brings Smart Notebook support

An update for Evernote has arrived for Android users this morning. The updated app can be found in the expected location, that is to say, in the Google Play Store. Perhaps more important though, this update has brought some new features for premium users as well as an updated widget. There is now also support for the Evernote Smart Notebook.
