Play Music gets Material Design update, iPad version for iOS

Today, Google has rolled out a fairly significant update to their Play Music app for iOS. The app has been refreshingly redesigned, and will now have a Material Design interface that keeps it more closely aligned with their other recent app updates for both iOS and Android. The overall navigation isn’t changing, but the ‘currently playing’ screen is a lot cleaner and more modern.

Google continues clean-up, pulls Sparrow from App Store

Google continues clean-up, pulls Sparrow from App Store

When it comes to email apps for your smartphone or tablet, the list of options is exhaustive. Google recently made a big splash with Inbox, which aims to make your email more contextual to-do than messaging platform.

With the service languishing of late as an also-ran that proved a reliable standard for modern email apps to gauge themselves against, it’s now been pulled from the App Store for iOs and OS X.

VLC for iOS returns for some

It seems that VLC developers are making good their promise to bring their popular but ill-fated on iOS video player back to Apple's fold. That said, not everyone is getting it just yet and those that have are reporting some issues here and there.

Cops flood Waze with fake police sightings

Cops flood Waze with fake police sightings

A lot of navigation apps dot the app stores, but Waze stands out of among them for one particular reason: it lets users know when a cop has been spotted in any particular region. Though not always accurate, this has been a favorite feature among users, and an excellent way to help avoid getting a speeding ticket. As you might have heard, though, law enforcement isn't so happy about the feature, going so far as requesting that Google/Waze eliminate the feature in the name of officer safety. That request didn't pan out, and now officers are using a different tactic.
