Aggregate Your Release Notes with What’s New

Have you ever installed application updates through Google Play without bothering to see what has changed? Who’s to blame you. After all, sometimes you’re busy and it’s just a lot easier to hit “Update All” than it is to actually read the What’s New section for every app. What’s more, many people like to leave auto-update enabled on many or all of their apps.

Wouldn’t it be nice if there were a tool that aggregates this information into one easy to access screen so that you can view this at your leisure? There is now such an app, thanks to XDA Forum Member kannibal85‘s latest app What’s New.

What’s New does exactly as its name says and displays the What’s New section for all of your installed apps, as well as their version numbers. Making matters easier, the app can also be accessed through drop down notifications that appear after an app is freshly updated.

Head over to the original thread to get started. While you’re at it, be sure to be meta and check out the app’s own What’s New section.

Open War for Open Android: Antitrust for Cyanogen?

Android and openness is something we talk about all the time, but the recent developments in the industry point towards inherent flaws with this very premise. Be it from bloggers, political institutions or corporations, Android is seemingly not open enough. The “War on Openness” is ironically becoming an open war, where many players are increasing their stakes and scope to try and land a bigger hold - or at the very least, restrict Google’s - on what is the world’s...

What Do You Do with All of Your Old Photos?

Smartphone cameras have advanced so tremendously over the past few years that they have almost completely replaced point and shoot digital cameras for the most of us.

Diving into the April 2015 Material Design Update

However, updates to the guidelines were few and far between, leading to a lack of synchronization between Android design and current UI/UX trends. Google seems to have learned from their mistake the last time around, and earlier this week, a significant update was released for the Material Design guidelines, marking the second revision in less...
