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

Media streaming service Plex has undergone a major update, not just in looks but also in the way you'll be able to use it. It now employs single-app model but with a small in-app purchase, as well as new additional features. 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.

Shazam lets you access saved playlist right on Spotify

After only more than a month, Shazam is being updated to bring fans more convenience when it comes to listening to music on Shazam.

AlarmPad update adds an easier way to set alarms

Android has its own alarm app and so do many OEMs but that hasn't stopped many from making their own spin on the app. One of those is AlarmPad, which features many addon features, including syncing alarms across devices and dismissing them using NFC tags. The app has just gotten a major update that not only imbues it with Material Design, it also adds a new and faster way to add a one-off alarm.

BBC revamps mobile news app

For UK residents (and even for some across the pond), BBC is probably the most widely-read and watched news network. And since studies have shown that news consumption is mostly done through mobile devices, of course, they had to have an app, which they launched back in 2010. 5 years later, they have now revamped their app, giving it a more personal touch and ensuring that it will work better on your smartphone and tablet.

WhatsApp update now “respects” priority mode for Lollipop devices

One of the new things that Android users can expect from the Android 5.0 Lollipop update is a mode called Priority which filters those you've marked as important and gives you alerts even when you are basically on silent or do not disturb mode. But popular messenger WhatsApp seemed to not be applying that mode previously, but a new update to the app has made all things right.

TouchPal update: Material Design, more emojis

When chatting with your friends and loved ones on mobile devices, sometimes, words are not enough. Some emotions are better expressed through emojis.

TouchPal is one of those apps, and the newest update brings more improved features to the virtual keyboard.
