Taking place currently on the DL Deals Store is an Android smartwatch giveaway, allowing you to choose whichever prize you would like. Listed is a Moto 360, LG G Watch R, or a Samsung Gear 2.

The Material Design updating trend continues, this time with Google’s Cloud Print application. Cloud Print allows you to wireless sync prints to your device with just a couple of taps, but the highlighting feature, to me at least, is the ability to send any documents you need printed straight to a FedEx shop. When it comes to return shipping labels, there is no easier way to get it done. (more…)
To celebrate hitting 20 million players, BADLAND received an update this afternoon, containing a new level pack called DAYDREAM. For those of you who have not played BADLAND, it is a platformer based on a floating little shadowy character, set in a world of industrious waste and machines. Your goal is to navigate these worlds, reaching the end without being killed.
Inside the 10 new levels are 30 new missions, as well as 5 new achievements. In addition, a new character named SNORF is playable, which should help freshen up the gameplay. (more…)
Everyone’s favorite online collaboration tool, Trello, is receiving its Material Design makeover on Android this afternoon. While all of its features remain the same, the app does seem a bit more flat, fitting itself quite nicely inside of Google’s new design guidelines. (more…)
You probably already realized this, since we wrote up three Google apps with updates before noon, but yes, today is Wednesday and that means Google is unleashing new goodies upon us. Below, we have compiled a list of some of the updates that have already rolled out today (some yesterday too), along with download links and details to their changes (if they have any). A bunch of these updates are minor bug fixes, but a few do have substantial changes.
Should other apps receive updates, we will try our best to update the list.
Go get ‘em! (more…)
There are a few Google apps you never expect to see updated again, such as Chrome to Phone, simply because there seems to be little reason for Google to spend resources on them. We even thought the same for Zagat, too, ever since Google re-released the app for free following the service’s acquisition. Since then, it has simply sat around… until now. Today, Google quite unexpectedly touched up Zagat with a fresh coat of Material Design, tweaks to search, and filtering options. (more…)
An update is rolling out to Inbox via Google Play, bringing with it an updated Tablet experience, as well as Android Wear compatibility. The updated experience on tablets is a refined layout for users on a big screen, which is a welcomed addition. (more…)
An update hit the Hangouts Dialer app this morning, bringing a much-needed and highly requested feature for the application – the ability to recognize itself as a standalone dialer app.
Previously, when you would hit a phone number link on your phone with the Hangouts Dialer app installed, you would be directed to your stock dialer application. Now, with the update, you are given a choice to use either the Hangouts Dialer or stock dialer. (more…)
