Slingshot adds “Explore” button to discover more creative people

Trudialer update: better dual SIM support, new app design

For those who aren't satisfied anymore with their smartphone's default dialer, smart dialer apps have been lifesavers, or at least, have made their calling tasks simpler and even more fun. The latest update to one of those kinds of apps, Trudialer, sees redesign and better features, including the ever-important dual SIM support for those who use more than one carrier for their communication needs.

Google update spree: Play Store, Hangouts, Drive

MWC 2015 isn't enough to keep Google from doing its weekly update duties and this week, we're getting a taste of quite a few big ones. And now, this time it isn't just about Material Design, but the changes do improve on the overall user experience as well as the user interface of some apps. Play Store gets a new and better landscape layout, Hangouts gets a new contact card format, and Drive adds drag and drop organization on mobile.

Google releases preview of Contacts update

While other Google products like Gmail, Maps, Hangouts, have been constantly updated with new features or even just bug fixes, some like Google Contacts have been sorely neglected. It's funny because it's one of the most basic things that we use, whether you're on an Android device or you're highly reliant on the whole Google eco-system. Well, they've finally heard our gripes as Google has released a preview of what the Contacts update will now look like.

BBM update: customizable PIN, Android Wear support

For the 10 people (okay, maybe 20) who still have a Blackberry among your contacts, having a Blackberry Messenger is still very much convenient way of communicating with the rest of the Android, Windows or iOS people. The latest update for their BBM for Android app brings more customizable options as well as support for those who have Android Wear smartwatches.

Google Calendar for Android gets updated

As usual, Google has been busy working on its native Android apps, improving them with Android 5.0 Lollipop and Material Design elements in mind. Next to be updated is the Google Calendar app with more improvements and new features like viewing more events at a glance, pinch-to-zoom, 7-day week view, and adding of Google Drive files to events. There's also a new calendar option to show week numbers in settings.

Chromebook Pixel slated for (modest) refresh

The sleek Chromebook Pixel, source of more than a bit of squabbling when it first came out a couple years ago, will be getting a refresh in the near future, it has been confirmed. The upgrade will be a modest one by the looks of it, though all the details on what, exactly, can be expected haven't yet been revealed. What we do know points toward the need for reasonable expectations: Google makes it clear this is more or less a "proof of concept" device, and it won't be available on the mass level.

Pressenger: send custom message before making the call

Have you ever not answered a call from a friend because you were busy or unable to (or just reasons) only to find out later that the "missed call" was actually something pretty important? Of course your friend could have sent a message (yawn) ahead of the call, but if you had a more fun way to do so, wouldn't you choose an app instead? That's what Pressenger: Pre-Call Message is all about, and the app has a new update to make your before call messages even more interesting (and multi-lingual).

Google mobile search groups content into carousels

It used to be that when you search for anything on Google, whether you're on the desktop or the mobile app, it will just give you a straightforward listing of relevant websites for what you're looking for. But as the search giant began to understand what we actually wanted from the results (or what they think we want), they've begun to tweak the search features, update after update.

Inbox by Gmail update: tablet-ready, more browsers added

If you've been waiting for Google to make more features and updates for their Inbox for Gmail app, then the wait is now over. And if you're still confused as to why they had to create a different email app when the Gmail one was already pretty good, then this is your time to try it out (after asking a friend for an invite of course). The latest update now brings the app to your Android tablets, as well as to browsers other than Chrome.
