RunKeeper 3.0 for Android released in beta, we go hands-on

RunKeeper for Android is still sitting at version 2.14.2.2 in Google Play, however those looking to see the 3.0 release can now do so. The RunKeeper team has recently released v3.0 in beta form and made it available for anyone that wants to check it out. The beta release can be found by way of the RunKeeeper Blog, but keep in mind -- you will need to sideload the apk file. That small detail out of the way, lets get into what has been changed.

Chrome Beta for Android found to be hiding a full-screen browsing mode

It seems Google may have hidden a full-screen browsing mode in the latest Chrome Beta release. Though, before anyone thinks of switching to the beta -- we should point out that this seems to be more of an unintentional discovery at this point.

Not to mention, there are some glitches when returning after you have closed the app.

Chrome Beta for Android adds support for experimental features

Google launched the Chrome Beta for Android app earlier in the month and it looks like we have been given an app that will see regular updates. The app had some new features added a few days after the launch and some more have arrived today. For those trying to keep track, this latest Chrome Beta update brings the version number up to 25.0.1364.47. Of course, if you have any doubt about the version you are running, it is likely easier to fire up the Play Store and see if an update is waiting.

Tasker beta reveals cleaner looking UI

While Tasker has been a pretty great app in terms of function, the same was not able to be said about the look and feel. Simply put, Tasker is powerful, but not all that pretty to look at. That being said, while the Google Play Store version will still maintain the same look and feel, there is a new version in the works. And for those who are curious, the updated version of Tasker can be downloaded in beta form.

SugarSync announced the 2.0 beta back in mid-November. Current users have had the option to upgrade to the new (still in beta) versions on the desktop and the web and as of today, you now have the option to run the beta app on your Android handset. The one catch, the app is not yet available from Google Play and instead will need to be downloaded and sideloaded.

MediaMonkey launches Android beta

We already had a smattering of Spotify news today, but now we've going to shift gears and look at an entirely different music player. The makers of MediaMonkey have launched an Android beta, so if you're a MediaMonkey user, you can now test it out on your Android device. There are few reasons to use MediaMonkey over the competition, as the player's tagging and syncing features allow for some deep organization.
