Samsung Internet Browser reaches 500 million installs on the Play Store

Thursday, February 22nd, 2018

When you consider that Samsung Internet Browser comes pre-installed on all of the Korean company's smartphones, this milestone might not seem so impressive. However, the web browser was recently opened up to all Android devices, regardless of the manufacturer, and it's clearly been popular enough with other users to take it over the 500 million installs mark on the Play Store.

If you've used the app you'll be less surprised.

Wednesday, February 21st, 2018

If you were around for yesterday's activities, you've already seen that Android Pay has been switched over to the new Google Pay branding, along with some upgrades to both the look and function. As part of the announcement, we were told that the Google Wallet app would be undergoing a short term rebranding of its own, taking on the name Google Pay Send. That version is now here, and unsurprisingly, it has been given some minor visual touch-ups.

There are also some other smaller improvements that will make it easier to set up multiple keyboards within a language and perhaps even get suggestions and autocorrections for languages you've never even set up.

Google Pay v1.53 rolls out major redesign, prepares transit tickets and custom card art [APK Teardown]

Wednesday, February 21st, 2018

Google announced earlier today that it's taking the plunge with the Google Pay branding, meaning the Android Pay and Google Wallet names and branding are officially canned. To go along with the shift, a new version of the Android Pay...err, Google Pay app is rolling out with an updated look. It's going to take a little while to get used to that name. There are also some clues about what's to come, but we'll get to that in the teardown.

Google Home v1.27 includes several cosmetic changes and shortcuts, smaller APK, and hints at new devices and reversible controls [APK Teardown]

Tuesday, February 20th, 2018

The latest Google Home update is rolling out with a handful of small-ish changes. Some of them are mostly cosmetic, and a few others are convenient links to matching features normally found in the Google app. A teardown also turned up some vague teases for new devices. There is also a new setting for devices that have reversible controls, but it's not clear if that's live for anything yet.

What's New

Unofficial Changelog: (the stuff we found)

  • Smaller APK
  • Shopping list removed from nav drawer
  • Redesigned settings for default output devices
  • Voice Match link in device settings
  • Clear search history

Smaller APK

From time to time, one of Google's apps will suddenly drop a significant amount of weight.

SwiftKey Beta v6.7.8 appears to fix annoying bug when typing in comment forms like Disqus in Chrome

Saturday, February 17th, 2018

SwiftKey remains the keyboard of choice for many Android users, myself included. While the app is undoubtedly bloated, its autocorrect and next-word prediction are tops. Sadly, those strengths have gone to crap lately when using SwiftKey to type in comment forms like Disqus in Chrome. The latest SwiftKey Beta appears to fix the issue.

The bug hampers autocorrection while typing and causes odd things to happen when tapping next-word predictions. For example, sometimes multiple attempts are required to select a prediction; or tapping a word in the prediction bar adds the first letter of that word to the end of the word, yielding a nonword.

Android Auto v3.0 prepares to launch Wi-Fi projection support [APK Teardown]

Friday, February 16th, 2018

Since the launch of Android Auto, drivers have been disappointed by the requirement to have their phones tethered to a cable. Not only was it inconvenient to plug in each time you got in the car, especially if you had a lot of quick stops to make, but it was also problematic when most cars didn't feed enough power through the designated port to keep phones from draining. Google finally let it slip that Wi-Fi support would be launched for Auto, and with the latest version, it looks like Google is just about ready to make it a reality.
