Google Maps Updated to version 7.4


This week, Google also updated Google Maps, which brings a few new gestures and icons. It’s not a huge update and of course it’s in a staged rollout as usual with Google’s apps. They also capitalized a lot of the words in the services section of the app.

Google Keyboard Gets Updated


Its great having the stock Android keyboard in the Play Store. It simply means that we can get the KitKat keyboard without sideloading, or running a custom ROM or anything else. The keyboard was updated this week and is now the same keyboard that’s on the Nexus 5.

Tumblr Gets Updated


This week, Tumblr also got a nice update. Making it easier to create and share photosets, see animated gifs in the dashboard, and able to rotate your device for landscape view. Although that’s mostly for tablets. It’s still useful on phones.

Comcast also updated their XFINITY TV Go app this week. The update was mostly bug fixes, but also allow you to watch live TV now. Which is definitely awesome, especially when you’re not at home, you can just pick up your Galaxy Note 10.1 and start watching the big game.
