[APK] Google Email 6.3 Now Available through the Play Store

Earlier today, Google gave us yet another “Update Wednesday” with new versions of Chrome Beta, Drive, Hangouts, My Tracks, and Translate. Seemingly not content with simply updating the above, Google has now given us one more: Google Email—no, not Gmail.

Over the past couple of years, Google’s made efforts to make much of the core Android independent of any particular Android version. Google’s done this by bringing many first party apps to the Play Store such as Gmail, Chrome, and Hangouts, as well as the introduction of Google Play Services. Google also recently brought the Camera app to the Play Store, along with a whole lot of added functionality.

Now, Google has added the company’s “other” first party Email client to the list, which you may be familiar with if you use a POP3 or IMAP Email account in addition to Gmail. According to the Google Play Store, in addition to simply bringing the app to the Play Store, the update to version 6.3-1218562 brings increase security for Gmail accounts, easier account setup, KitKat printing support, and various other bugfixes. In addition, we’ve also noticed a refreshed UI that brings it inline with Google’s recent UI paradigms including that ever-present slide-out “hamburger” menu. Finally, this likely means that we’ve unfortunately lost yet another formerly open source application to its closed source counterpart.

This update should be available to the vast majority of Nexus and Google Play edition devices (other than the M7 and S4) through its Play Store listing. Unfortunately though, this means that if you’re rocking any other device, you’re out of luck for the time being. Luckily, we’ve gone ahead and mirrored the APK over on our Dev-Host account for your sideloading pleasure. However, compatibility will surely be hit or miss for unauthorized devices.

Send Links to Any Nearby Device with CaastMe

There already are many solutions on the Google Play store if you want to send a link to one of your devices -- but what if you wanted to do it quickly without having to install any software or logging in to a website on the recipient end? Most apps require you to do either or both, which can be a hassle (or even a security risk) in some cases. Luckily, XDA Forum Member wyemun has developed CaastMe. Inspired by...

The Witcher Battle Arena: Hectic Multiplayer MOBA Fun

Do you like MOBAs? Do you like gaming on your phone? Given that MOBAs (multi player battle arenas) have amassed millions upon millions of players, there's a chance you play LoL or DOTA. And here at XDA we love phones, and we spend a lot of time on them, so if you were to like gaming outside of smartphones you probably like some on them too. I personally like neither, and I simply download the latest 3D games to see the progression...

LG G4 Could Feature a… 3K Display?

According to myLGphones, a version of the LG G4 will not feature neither a 2K nor a 4K display - but 3K. If you are anything like me, your reaction to this news will be confusion. While we don't have many details about the sources of this leak, it has apparently been confirmed true by a poster at hardare.fr that gave some more details on model names for each version of the upcoming LG flagship. However, these leaks don't point towards all G4...
