Kodi (XBMC) Alpha and Beta now available via Google Play

There are only a few media hub apps and software out there that you would even consider, because handling all your media and then pushing, playing, transcoding them to something you can watch or listen to on your big screen TV is major work. Kodi – formerly called XBMC – is one of the more solid apps out there, but right until now, you had to somehow sideload it to use it. Not anymore.

Plex for Android gets updated big time, version 4.0.1 now out

Plex has been one of the more solid media manager-slash-media streaming apps you could use for controlling your Chromecast stick or other such streaming devices.

Plex app for Android updated with new design, single-app model

But of course Ui-wise, it will also give you a more modern look and feel, although not necessarily the Material Design that most people expect from app updates of late.
