One of the most exciting changes in Android O is the new Autofill API that would allow password manager apps to register as system-wide providers of autofill services. In layman terms, this means that apps like LastPass, 1Password, Enpass, Dashlane, and others, won't have to use accessibility services or screen overlays anymore as a workaround to fill up your usernames and passwords. Instead, they will have one API that grants them native access to enter your information without too much hassle.

Before there was Allo and Duo, before Hangouts was unveiled, there was Google Talk. In some ways, it was better than the Hangouts platform that replaced it. Talk had a real desktop app, and if you didn't like it, you could use any XMPP client to communicate. You could even send messages to users on other XMPP-powered services - a huge difference from today's proprietary messaging services.

Google Talk was ultimately updated to Hangouts in 2013, but some of Google Talk's services still remained active. Today, Google announced in a blog post that the remains of Talk is being completely shut down.

Nova Launcher is one of the most popular third-party launchers on Android, partially because it's always adding innovative new features. That is certainly the case with v5.1 beta 1, which adds something called "dynamic icons." Rather than a boring numeric badge, these are badges with the content from notifications in them.

To hear developer Kevin Barry tell it, badges with numbers aren't very useful. What's the difference is you have 5 messages or 10?

You may recall us covering ML Manager, an incredibly easy to use APK extractor tool, earlier this month. APK extractor tools can be incredibly useful, from simply backing up applications (perhaps ones removed from the Play Store) to uploading them to APKMirror. But for the latter, opening the site in a web browser and navigating to the upload page was still required.

Thankfully, the developer behind ML Manager has updated the app to support directly uploading to APKMirror.

Once upon a time, I was able to get most of my communication done through Hangouts. Between its support for standard SMS, Google Voice, and normal Hangouts conversations, it was an incredibly useful tool. It even could even merge SMS and Hangouts conversations into the same thread, much like iMessage on the iPhone.

From the creators of Papo & Yo, Minority Media VR inc. have released a Daydream VR game onto the Play Store today. Titled The Other Room, this is a virtual reality take on the tried and true concept of escaping a room through solving puzzles.

The Other Room offers procedurally generated puzzles while mixing in immersive audio and bizarre 360 video segments. Your overarching task will be to foil your adversary's plans, but beware -- they will convincingly try to evaluate your mental state in order to throw you off your game.

Who doesn't love seeing movie tie-in games? Especially ones that call back to a cash-flush demographic of 20 to 30-somethings. Not only are these just an obvious advertisement, they often utilize detrimental gacha free-to-play mechanics. I mean, who wouldn't want this trendy new form of gambling shoved into their media? That is right, today's winner of egregious cash-ins off the backs of people's nostalgia is Power Rangers: Legacy Wars.

Really, what is there to say?

Adobe has long since abandoned the idea of producing "real" versions of Photoshop for mobile devices. Instead, it's fond of bite-sized apps that do a few image manipulation tricks with a simpler interface. Two of them are getting updates today: Photoshop Mix and Photoshop Express. One is getting a lot of features, and the other is only getting one.

Let's start with the bigger update, which is Photoshop Express.

  • Updated the core imaging engine, improves performance and enables opening additional RAW files types.

Vudu has offered a Disc-to-Digital service for a while for those who wanted to convert their physical DVD and Blu-Ray movie collection to digital. However, the service either required you to pop into a Walmart with all of your discs in hand or download the app on your computer and insert discs one by one to verify that you own them.
