Adobe Flash, Google Maps, and Evernote Receive Updates in Android Market

Three of our favorite and most used apps all received updates today. Adobe’s Flash Player 11 has been updated with a few security enhancments. Sorry, no Chrome Beta still. The Google Maps application has been updated for improved battery performance on Latitude and Location History. And finally, Evernote is receiving lots of bug fixes, an improved interface for Explore Evernote and a fix for the copy/paste issue in the note editor.

Cheers Chris!

    No Chrome beta, ever… thankfully.

    Remember, Adobe said any mobile Flash updates from here on out are for security or showstopper bugs.  It won’t be in any other browser (at least with Adobe’s direct help) and won’t be tweaked to run if it breaks in Android 4.5/5.0/what have you.

    The Maps update also seems to include a new check-in leaderboard, sort of like on Foursquare…

      Or at least it did when I checked in… I can’t seem to figure out how to get back to it…

      • Caleb Martin

         Yeah, it does, but the only way I have found to bring it up is to check in somewhere — it is displayed after you check in and your score is updated.

    PowerAMP was also updated today.  With all of the talk of music players lately, I found that more interesting than at least one of the other apps listed in this post.

      I bought PowerAmp, and as much as I like the interface, no Google Music support kills it for me..

    Don’t get me wrong, I love the Nexus’ display.  But I’ll be glad when I never have to see a macro shot of a pentile screen again.  Though I’m sure Motorola will be putting crappy displays in their phones for years to come.

    That must be an old screenshot.  It has the old G+ icon.

    WHAT IS THAT WALLPAPER

  • Jim McClain

    really dont care about flash, have not put it on the nexus, doubt I will,  did see a difference in battery drain after the last maps update,hopeully even better this time

      I have to say … I agree. Haven’t bothered to put it on mine either, I consider it a waste of space on the phone.

      I’m not knocking those who want it at all, personal preference. To be honest as well, even on my Gnex, I prefer mobile sites that look decent over the desktop counterparts, gizmodo and associated sites come up quickly and look great.

      DL on the other hand force me to the desktop site, and halt loading three quarters in half the time due to whomever’s ad has faulty scripting that the browser has to decipher. Yes, that was a dig, and I stand by it. Bring back the ability to go mobile and STAY mobile if one wishes.

    I’m afraid of updating maps, does it still stay running for no reason? Tired of having to uninstall the updates just so it doesnt kill battery

    • http://profiles.google.com/adamtruelove Adam Truelove

      Maps never even shows up in my battery stats.

    • Caleb Martin

      It has never done that…

    Did you forget where it said in the changelog that “Adobe flash 11 updated to support Android 4″ ??

    So did you hire Mr Partial-Blurrycam to take all your photos? :P

    • EC8CH

      it’s called a large aperture

      • Anonymous

        I know how it is produced.  Though I suspect a lot of the blurring is artificial in many of their photos via editing and not the f stop.

        It’s just when you use the same look for every photo it looses it’s pop, well to me at least.  Especially the ones that look unnatural.

        • EC8CH

          yeah, all blogs use the short depth of field gimmick a lot.  Effective at drawing attention to certain details, but really no purpose on this picture.

            kind of like your comments
