New minor updates for Google Docs, Slides, Sheets coming up

For apps that we constantly use for work and productivity purposes, updates, no matter how minor they are, are always welcome. Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides has been used by a lot of people as replacements for Word, Excel, and Powerpoint, especially in companies and organizations that rely a lot on Google products. There are upcoming updates to these apps that may not be that big of a deal, but they are still improvements nonetheless, especially if you're always on the go.

Stream your music from OneDrive to Xbox Music app

While music streaming services have been growing in popularity the past few months, there are still some who prefer to play their own music from their own devices. But sometimes, there isn't enough space on your smartphone or tablet, and you have to limit the songs you've saved on your device. The updated Xbox Music app, soon to be rebranded into Groove, now allows you to stream songs that are saved on your OneDrive cloud storage app, and at no extra cost.

Google Messenger updated with stickers, location sharing

Google officially launched the Messenger last year but it's only now that the instant messaging app is getting a significant update. This new version now comes with new stickers and  location sharing features. This messaging app already boasts of a modern user interface but the addition of new features makes it more convenient, easier, and more fun to use.

Google Play brings minor tweaks to animation, what’s new section

The Google Play app may not be the most constantly updated of all the Google products, but it is actually one of our most opened apps, if you're always on the search for new apps on your Android devices. A Googler has recently revealed to an online site that there will be changes happening to the app as Google tries to continually improve all their products, even if it is through minor changes only.

Fleksy virtual keyboard will now be free forever

If you've always wanted to try out a virtual keyboard but didn't want to spend a buck (or even les than) on them, one of the more popular ones has recently announced big news. Fleksy will now be free for users on all platforms, and they promise it will be forever. Making it available for free will hopefully bring a bigger user base to the developers, and so they will be able to concentrate as well on creating more improvements and maybe additional products for that growing community.

Omni Swipe (ex Lazy Swipe) update: locked screen, better search, etc

The bigger our smartphone screens get, the harder it becomes to use it with just one hand. We told you about an app a few months ago that will help you with that problem. Back then, it was called Lazy Swipe, but since then, it has been renamed Omni Swipe (probably because not everyone who wants to use the app is actually lazy). The newest update to the app brings better search functionality, random wallpapers for your display, and other minor improvements as well.

Action Launcher 3.5 is out, Quickbar feature introduced

Action Launcher remains one of our favorite – if not THE favorite – Android launchers simply because its developer Chris Lacy keeps adding one great feature upon another. Lacy also listens quite a bit to feedback from his users, and so bugs and whatnot are easily and promptly dealt with on every update, which is very much a regular happening, unlike other apps which starve of development. The latest update to Action Launcher is out, which brings us to version 3.5, with a new headline feature called the Quickbar.

Sony updates Folding@Home to help research in cures for diseases

Who knew that your smartphone can actually someday literally save lives? A groundbreaking app from Sony is being used by scientists involved in research of diseases like breast cancer, Alzheimer's, and some infectious diseases like ebola. They use your smartphone's processing power in order to help protein folding research as there is a huge amount of power needed to " simulate the complex movements of proteins as they change shape." The latest update from the Folding@Home app helps researchers reach that goal easier than before.

Doodle: Schedule Maker gets a redesign, built-in chat feature

When you say doodle, the images of drawing and making random pictures come to mind. However, this app named Doodle is different as it is another scheduling tool developed to organize reunions, meetings, events, and make online surveys for work or school. The app has been around since 2007, helping millions of people to work faster and with more efficiency all the time. Doodle has just received an update which include switching Google accounts now being allowed. Some more bugs were fixed but that annoying bug that was preventing the app to open on different phones were also fixed.
