Google launches Voyager feature to celebrate Google Earth’s 10th year

It's been 10 years since we first started seeing the rest of the world from the comfort of our desks through Google Earth. We've been able to digitally visit those places that we plan to be in someday. They've also added a lot of great new features, including Street View cars (which people have had a lot of fun with) and even treks. But since the earth is indeed vast and worth exploring further, Google has now added the Voyager feature so you can see new places better.

Survive the horror of the House of Grudge, available on Android

Why would anyone want to scare themselves to death (well, that may be an exaggeration, but you never know) while playing a mobile game? Then you'd also have to ask why we love watching scary movies or telling scary stories. There are certain people who are fascinated with the horrific and the unknown, and that carries over to mobile games as well. One of the newest ones to try to scare the bejeezus out of you is called House of Grudge, now available on Android devices.

Make typing, undoing, redoing easier with Inputting+ app for Android

While it's become relatively easier to type on your smartphone and tablet now as compared to a few years ago (particularly when your device's tiny keys and screen were a hindrance), there are still some functions that you can't easily do on your touchscreen. If you're used to Windows, you somtimes long for the convenience of undo (Ctrl+Z), redo (Ctrl+Y), find & replace (Ctrl+F). The good news is that, as with everything else nowadays, there is an app for that now that we have Inputting+.

Stealth action game ‘The SilverBullet’ arrives on Android

There are very few stealth action games in the Google Play Store for mobile worthy of the name, but we think this new game called “The SilverBullet” – from the Korean indie production house Byulbran Studio – could fit the bill. Cool graphics and sophisticated gameplay are what the game offers to hardcore mobile gamers.

Save the heroes from the curse in Soul Hunters

Usually, it's the heroes who do the saving of people/characters in stories, movies, games. But what if the hero, or in this case, heroes are under a mysterious curse and you would have to save them so they can save the kingdom from this growing evil? Then you'd have to be the hero right? That is what you would need to do to play Soul Hunters, a mobile Card-Collecting Battle Game (CCBG) now available for your Android devices.

BRAWL is basically Bomberman, violently re-imagined

If you grew up in our generation, then you will understand what Bomberman is – that cute game with the animated bomb-laying guy out to finish a seemingly endless number maze levels against similarly cartoon-y villains. It was actually lots of fun. So take that, and then mix it with a horrible slasher movie like “Saw” or “Friday the 13th” and that’s basically what BRAWL is – a fun take on the old maze classic, but very much an adult game for the violence.

Yahoo’s redesigned mobile search now looks like Google (of course)

It was an eccentric English writer named Charles Colton who coined the now famous quote, "Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery." Google must now really be flattered as erstwhile rival Yahoo has overhauled its mobile search site, now bringing the most relevant results (apparently, previously, they've been giving us irrelevant ones?) and actionable results, just like what Google has been doing for the past years. This search overhaul is currently for mobile devices and for US users only.

OneDrive now allows you to cast content through Chromecast

The past few months has seen Microsoft create and update a lot of its apps for other platforms, adding a lot of features and capabilities that would make people use it even more than their own, native apps. The latest update they're giving us concerns their cloud storage app OneDrive. It now comes with Chromecast support, meaning users can cast their videos and images onto a larger screen, so you can view and show them off to other people.

Google has not officially released the Google App v4.8 but a new APK was sighted. The app was updated last Friday but it seems the official version has not yet been posted on Google Play. A recent APK Teardown gives us an idea of the new features and and some updates including new icons, reminders shortcut, local maps, Google Cast, voice commands for brightness and volume, insecure network warning, and “OK, Google” offline.
