It's Update Wednesday again and this time, Google is adding something new to the usual pack. Aside from pushing out updates to Chrome Beta, Hangouts, Drive, and My Tracks, the Android maker has also published its e-mail app on Google Play Store.
The last time we got a new update for developer Koushik Dutta’s AllCast – that wonderful little app that allows you to stream media from your device “over-the-air” to media-enabled receivers and TVs – was in May this year, when the developer announced that AllCast was now also available as a Chrome browser extension. Before this, he also tweaked the app's subtitle features when using Chromecast. “Koush” explains that he has been developing new features, and we all get to test them in this new update of the app.
Chris Lacy, the same developer who has brought you Action Launcher, has been a very busy body. He has just released an updated version of his new Link Bubble app, sporting a slew of interesting features. And to celebrate the occasion, he is even throwing in a limited time discount for the pro version of the app.
Google has updated the Voice app for Android. But before anyone gets super excited about new features or new functionality -- this is a small update. The Google Voice app is being bumped from 0.4.2.82 to version 0.4.3.8.
You’re browsing through your Facebook on your phone and see a great picture or post by your friend about something important. You want/need to like it at that very moment. Too bad you’re offline. Or you had a wild party the previous night and when you wake up, you saw that your friends tagged embarrassing photos of you. Too bad you’re on mobile and you can’t untag to save your online reputation.
The latest update for SwiftKey has arrived in the Play Store. And while SwiftKey seems to get updates on a fairly regular basis -- this is one that will likely attract a bit more attention than usual. Simply put, SwiftKey is now available for free.
Amazon has announced the latest improvement for the Kindle app -- and this time around the update deals with Whispersync and Audible. Basically, this update means you'll now be able to quickly switch from reading a book to listening to a book by tapping a button.
In April, HTC rolled out an update to its Gallery app that had a feature to take advantage of the One’s (M8) Duo Camera setup which it called UFocus. We’ve covered this specific functionality before, but today’s update to the Gallery app now allows users of HTC’s flagship smartphone to have more flexibility in using UFocus – something that is sure to make a lot of HTC One M8 owners happier.
The CM Apps app was recently released in the Google Play Store. And it looks like another Cyanogen branded app will soon be available. This other is the CM Theme Showcase app and it is set to arrive for download on June 16th.
Google has rolled out the latest update for Play Movies and TV. This particular update deals with the Chrome side, specifically for Chromebooks. We are referring to the Google Play Movies & TV Chrome app (extension) which now supports offline playback.
