Google Fit updated with Android Wear, experimental step detection

With the numerous health and fitness related apps, wearables, and health bands, there really is no reason for you and me not to join the bandwagon. Actually, it's more than just following a trend. It's about finally deciding to be fit and healthy for your own good. Honestly, I can't say that I've seriously thought about it but with all these fitness goals being set by other people, I'm feeling guilty that I'm trying to convince myself it's time to get on my feet, work out, and eat right.

Gmail app improved once again, IMAP support now more reliable

There will never be an end to Google updating its native mail app. Gmail has been one of the top favorites of not just Android fans but also those using other mobile platforms because you can easily organize mails, search the inbox, and the tons of space that come with it. Only a couple of months after the last update of viewing all inboxes in one place, the app has just received another set of few improvements which include support for non-Gmail addresses (IMAP) being more reliable than ever.

Google’s first Apple Watch app may not be their best one yet

It looks like Google's first foray into smartwatch apps outside of the Android Wear platform may not be as successful or as well-received as they would hope for. Early reviews for their News & Weather app for the Apple Watch have not been kind, so they might want to get back to the drawing board for this one. Even Yahoo, who has long been a very far bridesmaid to Google, has apparently made a better one than their rival.

Whether you like it or not, some Google products and services are really prone to hacks and security can be compromised. For one, the Android mobile platform is susceptible to hackers but the tech giant is doing everything to keep the bad geeks away. And for those who use Hangouts, know that the program doesn't use end-to-end encryption. This is according to a Reddit AMA (Ask Me Anything) thread where a Google employee was challenged to share how secure Hangouts is.

Google halts Map Maker due to “escalated attacks”

In another round of "this is why we can't have nice things", Google has decided to stop allowing users to edit stuff via its Map Maker. This is due to the fact that there have been a lot of "pranks" (otherwise known as people with too much time on their hands) in the edits that some users have been making, including an Android mascot peeing on an Apple logo, among others.

I know a lot of Google Nexus fans who are waiting for the next Nexus model. Rumor has it the next one will be a Huawei model. If true, it will be the first time Huawei will be offering a Nexus device to be powered by Google. The tech giant's next flagship phone could be a Huawei Nexus but we're leaving this as a rumor for now until more hints, leaked images, and eventually official teasers are published.
