TuneIn Radio now offers premium service for $7.99 a month 

Monetizing on free music or radio streaming services has always been a tricky point with consumers and the services themselves. While of course people would want to choose the free version over a paid one, the trick is to offer something premium and attractive to convince people to switch to a subscription service. TuneIn Radio, which brings you not just music but podcasts and radio programs as well, is offering a new Premium Service for its users and sports fans in particular may be happy.

Link Bubble Browser goes from premium to free

Earlier this month, we noted that Link Bubble and TapPath were acquired by another startup from independent developer Chris Lacy. His apps became successful beyond his expectations and since he didn't have enough resources and manpower, he decided to sell it off to an unknown American company. But looks like we have a name now as a certain Brian Bondy announced in his page the availability of Link Bubble Browser--for free!

For people who constantly travel or are always getting invited and going to events, adding information to their calendars can be a vexing task, either for the individual or whoever is handling their calendar. If you’re a Google Apps user for work or for your organization, then you’ll be happy to know that your life will become a bit easier as anything pertaining to a trip or event that is received by your Gmail will then be added to your Google Calendar.

Facebook Moments can now make videos from your gathered photos

Two months ago, Facebook launched Moments, a stand-alone app that allows you to gather the photos posted on the social networks that you didn’t take but you’re in it. Unfortunately, it was only for US users and of course for a first release, there were some things that needed to be improved. Their newest update now brings it to more countries and also lets you make videos from the photos in your moment.

Floatify Version 8: more customizable options, new features

Even before Android 5.0 Lollipop made heads-up notifications common to all updated devices, there was an app called Floatify that was ahead of the game (well, they did base it on L but launched ahead of it). And if you weren’t satisfied with the stock notification settings from Google, you might have stuck with Floatify even as your devices got Lollipop-ized. Now, more than a year later, they’re launching version 8.0 of the app and it comes with a ton of new and customizable goodies that makes this one of the better alternatives to the default Android notification system.

LINE major update: Premium Call rebranded, calling now easier

Messaging apps have long become more than just about sending messages to friends and loved ones. You have games, apps within the app, multi-media features, and most importantly for some, free calls (or at least low-cost calls). LINE is bringing a major update to its app, and that includes rebranding their Premium Call into LINE Out and making it easier for users to make calls, either free or not so free. And this update is coming to Android devices first!

Swarm update: leaderboard coins, “Here Now” feature

When Swarm brought back the mayorships feature to the app (which went away when Foursquare and Swarm became two separate apps), the compulsive location-checking mobile users were delighted. Now your competitive nature will receive more blessings as the latest update brings back the leaderboard, but with a golden twist. This new version also makes a few minor changes and adds a few neat features, to make it easier to locate your contacts in a public space.

Talon for Twitter update: focus on Android Wear, Android Marshmallow

Not all of us have access to the upcoming new Android version, Marshmallow, but developers are already starting to update their respective apps and programs to make them compatible when it finally does roll out. One of those apps is Talon for Twitter, which only recently rolled out a “massive update” with version 3.0. But here they are again, with version 3.1, bringing more support for its Android Wear app and of course Marshmallow support (sounds like a great new dessert!).

Google Maps updated with easy Street View access

Google Maps is no doubt one of Google's best projects ever since it actually began. It has changed the mapping and navigation industries big time. More enhancements have been made when the Android version was released because more people are no longer at risk of getting lost. Having a digital map on mobile device can be really helpful especially if you're going to or already in a new place you are not familiar with.

Pebble Time, Pebble Steel updates firmware, Android app

As more and more of the units get shipped to backers, and non-Kickstarter supporting people now able to purchase the new models, Pebble will of course look to improving their Pebble Time and Pebble Steel devices. In just one week, they brought version 3.3 of the firmware to both devices and then updated the Android app just a few days later. Both updates brought minor but significant improvements to the new wearables from a brand that is considered one of the pioneers in the smartwatch industry.
