Talon (Plus) for Android 5.0 released, Classic unpublished

It is a bittersweet week for fans of Talon for Twitter from Klinker Apps, who also develops EvolveSMS and Blur Launcher. The developer has just released Talon for Twitter (Plus), a new and improved version of the popular Twitter client, but one that has been designed for Android 5.0 and with Material Design in mind. But sadly, that also marked the death of the Classic version of Talon that works on other Android versions, due to Twitter's rather restrictive authorization token limit.

Spotify Family gives discount for multiple accounts

Listening to Spotify in all its unlimited access and ad-free glory is pretty much a requirement for most people these days (especially if you're sick and tired of that Spotify guy's voice) and it will not cost you an arm and a leg. But what if you have an entire household clamoring for their very own account? The expenses of paying for multiple subscriptions would then get to you. Your favorite music streaming service is trying to help you out with that by giving you big discounts with its Spotify Family package.

Bing Rewards program comes to Android

I thought rewards points are only for groceries, shops, credit cards, and plane tickets. I had no idea Microsoft has gone geeky about it too. The software giant has released the Bing Rewards app for Windows Phone devices earlier and now it has come to Android. This means more ways to get points for using Bing’s many services to exchange for prizes in the future. Actually, we've heard about this rewards program earlier this 2014 but no mention when it will be launched.

Google’s My Tracks: Android Wear support, Drive sharing

The latest update for Google's tracking app My Tracks has brought with it a few major changes and improvements, particularly in the support for Android Wear smartwatches as well as the way you share your tracks with relevant people. Now your wearables running on Android's platform for smartwatches can use the app to track how many steps you've made during the day or the distance you've run during your early morning workout.

CaughtU Pro lets you catch the thief, takes an intruder selfie

Intruder Alert. Intruder Alert. Some people want similar security for their Android devices so they become less attractive to thieves. A new app called the CaughtU Pro will probably discourage snatching and theft because it takes photos of anyone who’s been trying to access your phone. It’s another security app that helps the owner to find his lost smartphone. If not, at least, have an idea who has his phone or who was last person who accessed it.

FloatNote allows you to place reminders for people you call

There’s always that time when someone calls and you know you have to tell that person something important, but as we tend to do, we forget. FloatNote is an app that was created with that situation in mind, and admittedly, we need all the help we can get – evidence being the multitude of apps out there designed to remind us of things.

SlideUP Launcher development takes an unusual Kickstarter turn

We've said it before and we'll say it again: Android will never have a dearth of app launchers and homescreen replacements. There are different kinds of different qualities, appealing to different tastes and different needs. SlideUP is yet another one of those vying for your attention, but admittedly, it is a curious one that, at the very least, deserves a second glance. Not only does it offer useful functionality, it seems to be trying out a slightly new way of development, at least as far as Android launchers go.
