Android Police is now a Twitch affiliate, Amazon Prime subscribers can support us for free

Thursday, October 4th, 2018

We launched a Twitch channel earlier this year, designed to be the new home of the Android Police Podcast. Since then, we've started a second weekly show (on Tuesday nights), where we answer questions from live viewers. Now our Twitch channel is an affiliate, meaning you can support our live content with Twitch subscriptions - at no cost to yourself, if you have Amazon Prime.

For those of you not familiar with Twitch, you can follow a channel for free (you'll get alerts when it goes live), but you can also pay for a subscription.

An update on the Android Police Podcast and our Twitch channel

Friday, August 10th, 2018

The Android Police Podcast has been running semi-regularly since 2012, but earlier this year we implemented some changes. Previously, the live streams were only available on the AP Podcast YouTube channel, with audio versions hosted on SoundCloud (and available through Play Music/iTunes/Pocket Casts/etc.).

We launched a Twitch channel in May, where we stream the AP Podcast every Thursday at 5:30 PM Pacific Time (8:30 PM Eastern). We now have almost 3K followers - thank you for that!

Android Police is now on Twitch

Tuesday, May 29th, 2018

The Android Police Podcast has been running semi-regularly since 2012, with most of those episodes being recorded live on the AP Podcast YouTube channel. However, as some of you may know, Twitch is becoming an increasingly popular platform for talk shows and podcasts. As such, we have set up a channel at twitch.tv/androidpolice!

Twitch is the new home of the Android Police Podcast, but we will continue to stream to YouTube as well.

Toolbox for Play Store v2.3 improves Google’s awful new screenshot gallery

Wednesday, May 23rd, 2018

The desktop Play Store site was updated in March, and perhaps the most annoying aspect of the new design was the screenshot gallery. Even though the full-screen lightbox is nice, the embedded gallery requires constantly clicking the left/right arrows to scroll. We updated our Toolbox browser extension to support the new Play Store site last month, and a new update vastly improves the screenshot gallery.

Version 2.3 of our browser extension is now rolling out, and it has a new optional feature called 'Better screenshot gallery'.

The Android Police Podcast has been running semi-regularly since 2012, with most of those episodes being recorded live on the AP Podcast YouTube channel. However, as I'm sure many of you know, Twitch is where all the cool kids are streaming these days. As such, we have set up a channel at twitch.tv/androidpolice.

Twitch is the new home of the Android Police Podcast, but we will continue to stream to YouTube as well (we just won't be checking the YT chat).

Our browser extension, ‘Toolbox for Google Play Store,’ now works with the new Play Store site

Tuesday, April 17th, 2018

We released our browser extension, 'Toolbox for Google Play Store,' near the end of 2016. It was designed to make the Play Store website much better, with direct links to APKMirror/AP/AppBrain for each app and the ability to sign up for beta programs with one click. The first major update was released in October of last year, adding Firefox for Android support and improved APKMirror integration.

We're happy to announce that Toolbox v2.2 is now rolling out to Chrome and Firefox users (Opera should approve it soon).

Android Police has a new and improved image gallery

Monday, April 9th, 2018

You probably already know that clicking any image in a post will open the gallery view. But the feature had a few problems - you couldn't zoom in, and it didn't fill the entire screen. We have now updated the gallery to fix these issues, and added a few new features!

Firstly, the UI now takes up all available screen space, so the images will be as large as possible. You can also click anywhere on a picture to zoom in, and click again to zoom out.

Android Police has switched to HTTPS

Monday, February 12th, 2018

The whole web is slowly marching towards HTTPS, especially since browsers like Chrome are starting to shame HTTP-only sites. After years of readers asking why we haven't already done so, I'm proud to announce that Android Police now supports HTTPS! If you're wondering what exactly that is, or why it matters, read on.

HTTPS is an adaption of the standard HTTP protocol, designed to encrypt all data using Transport Layer Security (TLS).

Toolbox, our web browser extension, adds Firefox on Android support and more with v2.0

Thursday, October 26th, 2017

Back in December, we released a Chrome extension called 'Toolbox for Google Play Store.' It was designed to make the Play Store website much better, with direct links to APKMirror/AP/AppBrain for each app and the ability to sign up for beta programs with one click. A few months later, we released it for Opera, and later Firefox.

But all that time, there wasn't much in the way of new features or major improvements.
