It was at the end of May this year when we saw that last significant update of Google Maps, bringing back Terrain View to the app – but today we’re seeing a bunch of new stuff being rolled out by the mothership to its primary maps software.

Android L heads-up notifications feature out in APK format

We told you that the Android L Developer Preview would be picked clean of its standout features, and what do you know, here’s another one.

Google Glass companion app reveals hints of a Google Games service

Google recently released the MyGlass app, which is the app those with Google Glass will need to use for configuration and management. Well, as we often see with newly released (or leaked) apps, someone tears into the APK and as such -- we often see some extra goodies. Quite often these have something to do with the app itself, however in this case it looks like the MyGlass APK teardown doesn't even touch on what may come with the future of Google Glass.
