Google plans to let preloaded apps update via Google Play even if you don’t log in

Friday, February 15th, 2019

The odds are good that you sign into a Google account as soon as you turn on a new phone. What if you don't, though? Well, none of the Google apps on your phone will work, and that includes the Play Store. Thus, pre-installed apps are cut off from updates. Google is looking to change that soon.

Google is contacting developers who have apps preloaded on phones to give them a friendly heads up on an upcoming change.

Pokémon GO gains AR-based snapshot mode that lets you pose with Pikachu

Tuesday, February 12th, 2019

It's been 20 years since Pokémon Snap, the N64 game in which players roamed the Pokémon Island taking pictures of its inhabitants. Two decades later, humans now roam the Earth taking pictures for the Gram. With the similarly-named GO Snapshot feature, a much-requested photo mode for Pokémon GO, Niantic seems to hark back to the past.

Monday, February 11th, 2019

Pushbullet was one of the first apps that successfully made your Android notifications more accessible and useful. With Pushbullet, you can sync notifications to other devices, reply to messages on your PC, and so much more. Development of the app slowed down over the last couple of years, but Pushbullet comes roaring back today with a major update.

Google Crowdsource app given Material refresh and wants your selfies [APK Download]

Friday, February 8th, 2019

Google's effort to slightly update the look of its apps to match the latest Material Design guidelines (MD 2.0, if you will) continues apace. Crowdsource is the company's clever way of gamifying data collection for use in its many products, and it now features Google Sans and uses a lot more white (quelle surprise).

So it's no different to any other Material makeover, then. Google's custom typeface is spreading like wildfire, but that's no bad thing since it looks pretty nice.

Monday, February 4th, 2019

Picture this: you have national security level web browsing to do, and fire up Incognito mode. However, unless you also remember to toggle your keyboard over to Incognito, it's still studying what you type to add words to its dictionary.

Adobe Photoshop Express adds watermark resizing and enhanced vignette tools [APK Download]

Friday, February 1st, 2019

The main reason I don't use a Chromebook for my work here at AP is that I can't run full Photoshop on it. Proper watermarking is one use case that hasn't been possible in the Photoshop Express Android app, but the functionality has been greatly improved in the latest update — even though most people will have found another solution for this by now.

As Adobe's changelog admits, watermark resizing was a much-requested feature, and now it's here.

Wednesday, January 30th, 2019

The Google Arts & Culture app started as little more than a web wrapper, but Google has added new features and given it a UI overhaul since then. There have been some fun camera-based tools like the artistic doppelganger ID and color matcher. Now, there's a new camera tab that puts them all in one place.

Just grab the latest version of the Arts & Culture app, and tap on the camera icon at the bottom.
