Google releases a Photowall app experiment for Chrome and Android

16

Google has a neat Chromecast application to show off today. Photowall lets you and your friends get together and display images right on your television.

You can create a Photowall using your Android phone or tablet, or from your laptop using the Photowall Google Chrome Experiment page. Everyone sends photos to the big screen, and when you're finished the application automatically generates a video and drops it on YouTube so you can share it with friends who weren't around to help make it.

Google Now rolling out to Chrome desktop users

39

We've seen Google Now for Chrome on the desktop for folks using beta builds, but starting today it's pushing out to all users. You won't need to fiddle with any settings or flags or do any sort of wizardry, but you will need to be on the latest version of Chrome — which you should be anyway for security reasons. Once Google Now for Chrome is available for you, you use it just like you would on the phone, with reminders and cards in your tray, and voice commands through the Google website. For more information, see this Google help topic page.

Onkyo updates its Android app for 2014 receivers

10

Onkyo's remote app isn't exactly what we'd call a looker, but it's a great little mobile addition to its receivers. It got an update this weekend to add compatibility with its 2014 models, which is good since we're nearly a quarter of the way through the year. It also improved the cursor controls, and the volume controls. If you've got an Onkyo receiver, definitely check this one out.

Apps of the Week

We have another great set of apps to check out this weekend

It's another Saturday afternoon, and that means it's time for another edition of our Apps of the Week column. We take a slot every week to show off an app from each of the writers here at Android Central, along with a quick explanation of why it's on our device. These could be utility apps, background services, photography apps, social networks, games or just random odds-and-ends, but if the app is installed on our phone or tablet we want to tell you about it.

Read along with us after the break and check out the apps we've been using this week — you may just find one that will be a great choice for your own device as well.

Fortunately, there's always something you can do to bring thing with you and here we're going to look at syncing your existing iCloud calendars to your Android device. You need not move it all to Google Calendar since there's a really simple way to carry on using it. Head on past the break to see how.

Asphalt 8 update adds 'Great Wall' tracks

Asphalt 8: Airborne — Great Wall

Asphalt 8: Airborne is one of our favorite (albeit so in-app purchase spammy it's also sort of sad) racing games, and this week it got itself a pretty major update with new tracks, the promise of new cars, and a whole bunch new fun to be had.

And this time, it's all going down in China.

Apps can now have separate changelogs for production, beta and alpha versions

8

A nice new feature for developers: You're now able to have different changelogs for production, beta and alpha versions of your app. Before it was all or nothing — and nobody wants to see a new changelog for an app without an update. We'll definitely take advantage of this with our next version, which should be available as soon as it's ready. (See what we did there?)
