Google Earth adds stunning crowsourced photos from users around the world

Wednesday, September 20th, 2017

The ever-impressive Google Earth saw a sizeable update earlier this year that included new features like guided tours, knowledge cards, and 3D views. Allowing us to see the world from the comfort of our own home is the goal of the Google Earth team, and to that end, it's added another viewpoint with beautiful images crowdsourced from users around the globe.

To activate the feature, on desktop or mobile, go to the hamburger menu in the top left and then turn on the Photos toggle.

Snapseed v2.18 revamps the UI with lighter theme and bottom toolbar [APK Download]

Tuesday, September 19th, 2017

Most Google apps are constantly getting small updates, but Snapseed tends to get fewer updates with more stuff in each one. Today, Google is rolling out Snapseed v2.18. It's a strange version number to choose for such a major update (the last one was 2.17). You get a new, lighter interface with a bottom bar for access all the app's editing tools. There are still a lot of sliders, though.

Opening the app, it's immediately clear things have changed.

New Highlights section is starting to roll out to Google Inbox users

Tuesday, September 19th, 2017

Back in the summer, Cody took an in-depth look at the latest update to Inbox by Gmail and found evidence for a new feature called Highlights. He found that Google was planning to introduce a section at the top of Inbox that would bring attention to priority emails right at the top of the app. Now, it looks like the feature has been turned on by Google, for some people at least.

Microsoft OneDrive introduces improved navigation in the latest beta release [APK Download]

Monday, September 18th, 2017

If you're looking for a decent alternative to Google Drive for cloud storage, you could do a lot worse than Microsoft's OneDrive. Most of us have an old Hotmail account knocking around somewhere anyway, so it's easy to set up and get 5GB free storage. The developers seem to pay attention to it, too, and they've just released a bit of a redesign on the beta channel for users to feedback on.

Action Launcher updated to v28 with support for new adaptive icon pack

Friday, September 15th, 2017

Action Launcher developer Chris Lacy has seemingly made it his goal to get as many Oreo features as possible working in his launcher. We've already got notification dots and free access to the Pixel-style features of the app. Now, Action Launcher v28 (previously in beta) is rolling out with support for a new companion app—an icon pack. This isn't just any icon pack, though. It's all adaptive icons.

Here's the changelog for Action Launcher v28, which is mostly related to the new icon pack.

Feedly reader has a crash bug issue, but the latest update should fix it

Thursday, September 14th, 2017

Everyone's favorite reader app, Feedly, seems to be having some problems on Android right now. For some users, version 37.3.0 (which was released back in June) has started crashing every time it's opened. I can confirm the issue on my Pixel XL, and it looks a little something like this...

  

Thankfully, the Feedly devs have been quick to act, first putting out a statement on Twitter saying they were looking into it.

Latest Vudu update adds multiple features, including a watch list, swag shop, and video zooming

Wednesday, September 13th, 2017

Movie and TV streaming app Vudu has become a popular option on Android in recent years. Its last big update added a nifty service that allows you to digitize your old discs for a small fee, and adding parental controls was another important recent improvement. The latest update, to version 5.3.165.52141, adds more useful features that you might expect from a streaming app of its kind.

Most useful of the new additions is probably the watch list that will help you track your progress through certain series and jump back in more easily.

Verified WhatsApp business accounts are now official

Wednesday, September 6th, 2017

To US readers, WhatsApp may not seem like much of a big deal. Things are different elsewhere, however, and with more than 1 billion daily active users it's easy to understand why Facebook paid so much money to acquire the messaging service. After a number of rumors and clues, business accounts similar to what you can already find in the Facebook Messenger app are now coming to WhatsApp.

Businesses already extensively use WhatsApp to communicate with their customers, particularly in Asia, but by introducing verified accounts there can be full confidence that you're talking to someone authentic.
