Android App Updates for July 18th, 2014: CloudMagic, PayPal, LocalCast, and More


Paypal updates to v5.5

This week the folks over at PayPal updated their app to version 5.5. Which brings in a few new features. But no material design just yet, unfortunately. For those interested, here's what's new: "Loyalty cards, login, and more! Vroom! Faster logins are here. We did some work behind the scenes to speed things up for you. Link all of your favorite loyalty cards to PayPal. Carry virtual versions on your phone. Your wallet deserves the break. We're no longer offering the "scan a check" feature. Not to worry. You can still add money to PayPal directly from your bank account."
