Apps!

See what apps the AC editors are checking out this week

So many apps. In fact, there are over 1,375,000 apps in Google Play alone right this very instant. That means two things — we're sure to find more than a few apps that we like, and we all can benefit from some word-of-mouth recommendations from folks we know and trust. Like the editors here at AC.

We live and breathe Android apps. It's not only fun, but it's our job to sort through them and separate the wheat from the chaff. Have a look at this week's wheat.

Google+ app update tweaks the Material Design a bit

28

Google's pushing out a new update to the official Google+ app. The red's a little redder, the floating action button's gone red with a redesigned white pencil, instead of white with a red pencil, and the shadow gone.

Update: Ah, and the Photos end of things has gotten a pretty good redesign. So it's still duplicative, but it also looks much better now.

See any other changes? Shout out in the comments.

Groupon's new app offers cash back on all kinds of purchases

5

Groupon has just kicked off an app called Snap, whereby you're notified of promoted brands, and if you pick up something of theirs from any store, you can take a picture of the receipt and earn cash back on your account for doing so. After you earn $20, they'll mail you a check. It's an interesting new take on classic couponing that produces the same end result with considerably less clutter. You can also earn cash for recruiting friends to redeem their receipts through the app.

Best Tasker plugins

20

Tasker is a mighty powerful app in its own right, but I'll confess, one of its best features is the plugins that help it do even more than it could on its own. (The best feature is — and always will be — the wonderful support community that gathers around this app.) Plugins come in many sizes and shapes, but a few stand head and shoulders above the rest.

We've covered some of these before, and others will be making their first appearance. Without further ado, let's get automating!
