Google Offers Updates

This week, Google Offers got a nice little update over on Google Play. It’s now got a faster, prettier and all new interface to have fun with. Along with the ability to redeem your offers even when you don’t have a network connection, which was a pretty big deal before.

ESPN College Football Finally Updated to Support 5-inch phones


ESPN College Football is one of my favorite apps for checking out the Michigan Wolverines and making sure the Spartans lose. But unfortunately it wasn’t compatible with the Galaxy S4, LG G2, Galaxy Note 3 or any other device that was more than 5-inches. Fortunately, ESPN has finally updated it to support the latest phones, but still no Nexus 7 support.

WhatsApp Updated to Allow number changes


WhatsApp was also updated this week. It includes changes like being able to change your phone number. Which is a feature that its needed for a while. Now you can head into Settings > Account Info and you’ll see a new option that is called “Change Number”. And you’re set to go.

Facebook for Android Starts Alpha testing


Facebook for Android has been doing beta testing for a while, but they are taking that one step further. Starting with Alpha testing. Facebook is seeking even braver souls than their beta testers to help test out new features to their Android app.

Riptide GP2 gets updated


Riptide GP2 also got updated this week. Bringing in quite a few changes like being able to race with your friends in the new “VR Challenge” game mode. There’s also a new ultra-fast hydro jet that was remastered for Riptide GP2, along with a female rider, and some new touch screen interfaces and manual control.
