Google updated the Chrome Beta browser App, the update brings the new Materiel design UI to Chrome browser, showing us what Google chrome will look like on Android L. However, there are still parts of it that haven't been updated to the new design language.
As those of you familiar with Google's new Material design would expect, the new Chrome Beta has a decidedly flatter look, and interacting with, say, the address bar, provides better feedback through animations. The Tabs window has also been changed for one, you can no longer see how many tabs you have open, and the look has been changed to, again, a flatter one. Lastly, it should be mentioned again that not all parts of the app have been skinned just yet the Settings menu, for example, is still stuck in the Holo design era, and so is the default homepage with your most visited bookmarks.
This is not the final version of the Chrome with Materiel UI, further updates is coming. Meanwhile, you can try the New Chrome Beta on your Android device.
Your Android Smartphone or Tablet is getting Slow ? You need a FREE App that optimize your device performance ? We have the soltuion, "360 Clean Droid". What's special about this App ? Well, Firstly, its FREE with no In-App Crap... Secondly, Its User Interface is a "one-click-functionality", the app is all about big letters, rounded buttons, and plenty of color is what this one is about. An optimization app can't really be simpler and friendlier to use.
Let's talk about the function now. First, the app boasts "millisecond boosting technology", which is 'fancy speak' for its ability to execute all its optimization programs with a single tap. Second, 360 Clean Droid features "advanced trash cleanup". We're not completely sure what makes it so advanced compared to other algorithms, but nevertheless, it's going to free plenty of space on your phone that you probably didn't know you had.
Finally, the app has a "privacy protection" module, which lets you erase web history, traces of other apps, text message history and phone call logs, and other stuff you don't want to display in public.
To top it all off, 360 Clean Droid has an "Autostarts Manager", which lets you disable specific apps from starting upon your device's boot. There's also a "Bloatware Uninstaller", which counts the number of pre-installed apps your smartphone or tab comes from and puts it against the number of apps you voluntarily installed. Needless to say, you can proceed to uninstall most of them, although this functionality expects your device to be rooted.
Google Maps for Android updated to Version 8.2 with some new features. These new features includes a Biking elevation support (beside public transport, driving and walking), and also a conversational voice actions while in navigation.
The biking elevation feature is really neat, but listed as beta. Basically, you get a timeline of your route so you can choose one with the least climbing. It even compares multiple routes in the search interface. The other biggie is voice actions in navigation mode. There's a button that initiates the voice mode so you can issue commands and ask questions. It understands things like "how long until I arrive?" and "What's my next turn?" It also accepts commands like muting voice guidance and showing traffic.
What's New on Maps 8.2 :
• Voice actions in navigation mode (how long until destination, show traffic, etc.)
• Bicycle directions show elevation, including elevation comparison for multiple routes (less climbing!)
• Your Places now appears in slide-out nav menu
• Voice icon replaces the "person" in search bar that used to load Places
• Uber card now shown in the car tab of navigation instead of just public transportation and walking
• ETA no longer in bold type

Dead Trigger 2, MadFinger Games' eye-pleasing zombie shooter, has just got a massive update. It brought tons of new features and content, which will surely be regarded highly by the fans of the visually-stunning FPS game.
Among the more notable new additions to Dead Trigger 2 are the tournaments as you might've deduced from the name, you can now take part in zombie-shooting competitions alongside other players of MadFinger's game. As sound logic suggests, the winner is the one who splatters more zombie heads. The first tournament will take place this week in the new Purgatory arena, which will not only face players against countless waves of brainless undead, but also against a number of new (and deadly) traps.
If said tournaments don't stack up high to your standards, then the new story campaign probably will. This time, Dead Trigger 2 will take you on a life-threatening trip to good ol' Europe. You won't be sightseeing, though, as you'll still be tracking down the mysterious Red One and the origins of the zombie mutation. As a whole, the update hauls 9 new regions and 30 unique environments.
In the weapons department, the latest version of Dead Trigger 2 doesn't fail to deliver, either. Zombie liquidators will have access to the spectacular number of 33 new weapons, including the Metal Storm and the Area-51 Gun. Download it Now Free from Google Play Store.
