A new version of Google Play is rolling out like molasses this week as v4.6.16 (staged rollouts, so fun!). The update isn’t major by any means, not like when we first exclusively showed you version 4.0, but does include a bunch of tweaks that will satisfy the geekiest of Android elitists. We’re talking the little things that annoy you as you use the Play store.
We also have it available for download below, so feel free to sideload away. (more…)

Earlier this week, users around the world began seeing a celebratory second birthday set of deals go live on Google Play. For whatever reason, those deals were not made immediately available to the U.S. market. That has now changed. If you hit up the link below, you’ll be able to join in on the celebration.
In the set of deals, you’ll find everything from free apps to in-app purchase deals and exclusives. There are free songs, cheap albums, cheap books, discounted movies, and more. It doesn’t exactly feel like the 10-cent or 49-cent deals from the past, but they still may be worth a look.

We have the .apk file for you below if you’d like to sideload it before the staged rollout hits your device. (more…)

The world didn’t end though, and Google Play has gotten a lot better over the past few years, expanding to offer Google Play Music: All Access, television shows and magazines. (more…)
