Garmin Pilot app updated to include automatic downloads, chart overlays, and more

Friday, November 17th, 2017

I'm not sure how many of our readers are pilots, but here goes anyway. Garmin has updated its Pilot app for Android to version 6.2, and with it comes a bunch of new features. I won't pretend I know what any of it really means, but I'll try to summarise the new additions as best I can.

The update includes Chart Overlays, which allows users of Garmin FliteCharts to "overlay instrument procedures on the moving map." The layer order and opacity of this can easily be changed, too.

Google Maps is about to get a lot more colorful

Thursday, November 16th, 2017

The design of Google Maps doesn't get updated very often, so when it does, it's kind of a big deal. The latest tweaks are all about adding a bit more color to the interface and making things a little easier to pick out as a consequence. What you see will also be more relevant to the mode of transport you're using, too.

It makes sense for the items on the map to be more contextual.

Wednesday, November 15th, 2017

There are a number of useful scanning apps on the Play Store that allow you to take photos of documents and turn them into digital copies. In fact, I wonder if proper scanners are even still sold anymore, such is the ease with which their purpose can now be fulfilled by a smartphone. Adobe Scan is one of the most popular examples of such an app, and its latest update makes it more powerful than ever.

Wednesday, November 15th, 2017

Some Android users have been irked by a mysterious "phantom call" bug in the last few weeks, and we recently tracked down the cause to Skype Lite. No one likes phantom calls.

The bug was a pretty frustrating one for those who connect to Bluetooth devices on a regular basis.

Snapchat is rebuilding its Android app from the ground up, and it’s about time

Thursday, November 9th, 2017

Anyone who's used Snapchat's Android app in recent years will be well aware that it's turned into a laggy, buggy mess. My friends and I used to use it regularly to send silly videos to each other, but we've all turned our backs on it by now. For those of you still muddling along with it, you'll be pleased to know that a complete rebuild is in the works. It's unlikely to make me rush back, but it's good to hear that the devs aren't completely oblivious to the issues.
