Android 1.0 versus Android 9: A visual tour of how far we’ve come in a decade

Saturday, September 29th, 2018

Android has changed tremendously in the last ten years. Returning to modern hardware after our historical series, I was struck by the visual differences across versions. For a closer look, we rolled back to an even earlier build on our T-Mobile G1/HTC Dream. For anyone who might be curious, here's a quick visual exploration of Android 1.0 vs. Android 9 Pie. And don't worry, this isn't one of those godawful click-for-every-photo galleries, just a simple scroll as we stroll back in time.

Google app v8.20 beta adds screenshot donation, renames Saved back to Collections, and more [APK Teardown]

Monday, September 10th, 2018

The last couple versions of the Google app have been fairly sparse for significant changes, likely because we're closing in on the next major Google event next month. With the release of version 8.20, there are a few things worth quickly running through, including a new option to donate screen captures, additions to Podcast screens, and Saved pages has been renamed back to Collections (again).

What's New

Unofficial Changelog: (the stuff we found)

  • Donate screenshots
  • View RSS feed and View Website in Podcasts
  • Saved renamed back to Collections

Donating screen captures

Earlier this year, Google opened up an option for users to "donate" images captured in Google Lens.

Gamevil is bringing a Project CARS spin-off to mobile, and this is what it looks like

Wednesday, May 16th, 2018

Project CARS is a popular motorsport racing simulator on PC and consoles, and apparently, the developer Slightly Mad Studios is teaming up with Gamevil to release an offshoot of the IP on mobile. It's currently going by the name Project CARS GO, which shouldn't be confused with Square Enix's Go series of puzzle games. Details are still very light, but if there is anything interesting about this announcement worth pointing out, it would be the fact that this is Gamevil's first foray into the racing game scene.

Google Duo screen sharing: This is how it should look

Wednesday, April 18th, 2018

When you're looking to video chat, Android users aren't hurting for options, and you've got your pick of everything from Skype to Snapchat. Sometimes, though, simplicity is best, and two years back Google introduced its no-nonsense video calling app: Duo. While Duo's largely stayed true to its straightforward roots, we've slowly been seeing the software become fleshed out with some useful new features. One that Google's been working on for a while now is the ability to share your phone's screen with the party you're calling, and while it's still not live quite yet, we're finally getting a look at how it's likely to work.

F-Droid v1.1 update brings full-screen app screenshots, search results sorting, privacy preferences, and more

Sunday, March 25th, 2018

F-Droid, the most popular open-source app store, got a rather significant facelift last May and was further refined with the release of v1.0 in October. Now it's been updated to v1.1, which brings privacy preferences, search enhancements, UI improvements, bug fixes, and more.

The latest F-Droid client looks nearly identical to v1.0, but there are a few changes to note. For one, app screenshots now expand to fill the width of your screen when you tap them, and you can swipe to progress through the full-screen slideshow.

Android P feature spotlight: Screenshot editing is now native with ‘Markup’

Wednesday, March 7th, 2018

Google recently started rolling out a screenshot editing popup for the Google app beta that also made its way to other apps for some. But it looks like that won't be necessary for devices running Android P, as a native screenshot editing tool, dubbed 'Markup,' has been implemented. It's not bad.

  

The new editor is called 'Markup' (get it? because you're marking screenshots up), and it's only accessible via the new 'Edit' option that comes on the screenshot notification next to 'Share.' From that edit button, you can either select Markup or Photos, though Markup will obviously be better for this purpose.

Google Maps 9.71 Beta prepares to show battery stats in location sharing and make several improvements for mass transit [APK Teardown]

Saturday, February 10th, 2018

A new version of Google Maps began rolling out this week. Unlike most recent releases, this one doesn't seem to be packed to the gills with new features. Even the teardown brings a fairly minimal number of clues for new things. Nevertheless, it looks like Google may be adding battery stats to shared locations and lining up several small-ish improvements to mass transit support.

What's New

Unofficial Changelog: (the stuff we found)

  • Screenshot button on detail pages

Google Maps v9.70 beta enables adding and removing visited places, prepares to display showtimes and sell tickets, continues work on shortcuts, and much more [APK Teardown]

Friday, January 26th, 2018

Google Maps has a new beta peeking out on devices. After a great deal of poking around, the list of changes for the interface is pretty sparse, but as always, there's a ton to discuss from the teardown. There's more from the home screen shortcuts, showtimes with ticket sales, detail fields for food photos, and way more.

What's New

Unofficial Changelog: (the stuff we found)

  • Add / Remove places visited

Manually add or remove visited places

If you're looking back through places you've been, the most convenient route is through the 'Your places' screen with the 'Visited' tab.

Google app v7.11 beta suggests the next Android version is 8.1, adds battery levels for Bisto headphones, prepares to tweak user-defined actions, and more [APK Teardown]

Wednesday, September 6th, 2017

The latest update to the Google app is rolling out to beta channel members right now. There aren't any immediately obvious changes on the surface, but as the tradition often goes, there are some things under the hood worthy of discussion in a teardown. This version brings a pretty good indicator that 8.1 will be the next version of Android. There are also signs that user-defined actions are going to get some changes in the future.
