[APK Compendium] Google Play Services 4.4.52 for All Densities, and the Rest of This Week’s Updates

Google’s first party application updates have been coming a bit out of band over the past few weeks. Rather than the typical “Google Update Wednesdays” that we’ve become accustomed to seeing, it’s now not uncommon to see these Gapps updates appear seemingly at random.

Since our last APK compendium, we’ve seen quite a few significant updates. This began with Google Play Newsstand 3.2.1, continued with MyGlass 3 and Play Services 4.4.51, and finally culminated with Google Play Store 4.8.19, which brought us PayPal payment support through the Google Play app.

Now, Google has started rolling out an update to the Google Play Services. This update brings Play Services up to version 4.4.52, up from the previous 4.4.51 build that we saw this past Thursday. As one would expect from such a minor point revision, this one seems to only be packing bugfixes. That said, since some users complained of wakelocks with 4.4.51, perhaps this or other notable issues have been solved.

Without further ado, here are today’s Google Play Services Update for all screen densities:

And in reverse chronological order, here are the latest versions of all of the Google first party application updates we’ve seen over the last two weeks:

And of course, here is the latest Google Maps 8.0.0 for all API Levels:

Pinsy Brings Social Sketching To Your Watch & Phone

Did you watch Apple's VP draw on his wrist during the Apple Watch announcement and wonder "why can't my Wear watch do that?" In typical XDA fashion, one enterprising forum member has brought similar functionality to Android Wear with a twist; it works on phones and watches alike, with other platforms on the way!

Should You Get Wear? Wearer’s Practical Observations

Wear is said to not offer enough for mass adoption, even though its been in the market for over 9 months. I personally have a Gear Live which I purchased 8 months ago, and my experience with it has had its ups and downs throughout my time with it.
