YouTube Gaming v2.02 adds Autoplay and introduces a new icon and splash screen [APK Download]

Thursday, October 19th, 2017

The YouTube Gaming app has been flying under the radar for a while as most of the updates have been focused on fixing bugs or making fairly minor changes–there haven't even been any new easter eggs since v1.97. Yesterday's update shows a little bit more activity as both cosmetic and functional changes were made. A revamped app icon and splash screen bring a little freshness to the look, and the always familiar autoplay feature from the core YouTube app is now available so you can put on an endless stream of game reviews or let's plays.

Thursday, October 19th, 2017

Outside of Samsung's yearly announcement of a new Galaxy Note, it's rare to see anything interesting happening with a stylus. However, the latest update to Google Play Books comes with some new behavior that makes a stylus much more useful with things like college textbooks and other reference material. Now when you drag a stylus over some text, it instantly switches into selection mode and pops up the action menu as soon as the selection is done.

Fly Delta update promises to make air travel easier with automatic check-ins [APK Download]

Wednesday, October 18th, 2017

Air travel is not an enjoyable experience, at least for most people. Part of what makes flying so stressful is having to remember to check-in ahead of time. Then you have make sure you've downloaded your boarding card correctly. At least we don't have to print them off anymore, I suppose, but it could still be easier.

Luckily, Delta agrees, and the latest update to its app introduces automatic check-ins, aiming to make the process that little less painful.

LastPass releases separate beta listing on the Play Store to test autofill in Android Oreo

Tuesday, October 17th, 2017

When Google released the final version of Android Oreo in late August, one of the most useful new features was the new Autofill API. This is essentially a system-wide solution similar to the way autofill works in Chrome, and that's something that can save us all a lot of time.

Developers need to get their apps ready for new API, and password manager LastPass was one of the first to come out and say it was in the works.

New Google Wifi update adds support for parental controls and more [APK Download]

Tuesday, October 17th, 2017

The internet can be a dangerous place, especially for kids. Many routers these days have some sort of parental control settings to help block access to nefarious or unsavory websites. Google's Wifi system is joining the party with the latest update. There's more stuff to be had here, but site blocking is certainly the highlight.

As usual, here's the changelog:

  • Site blocking: Restrict devices or groups of devices from accessing adult websites
  • Network optimization for time-sensitive data streams: Real-time traffic, such as voice calls and video calls, will perform better
  • IPv6: Support for custom DNS
  • General stability and performance improvements

Network optimization is another good feature to see, and it's one I use often in my home.
