Chrome for Android updated with Material Design

Chrome material

Google Chrome, the default browser on most Android devices, is getting a pretty big UI update today. We’ve seen the updated UI in a previous version of Chrome Beta, but it’s just now making its way to the Chrome stable app.

If you’ve used the Chrome Beta version, it’s the exact same thing. The action overflow menu, tab switcher, and even the icon got a revamping to Google’s newest design language, Material Design.

Head to the Play Store to see if you’ve got the update yet!

Beeb surprise backer of updated Radioplayer app

Finally helps GoMo tune in to Chill radio again

radioplayer to the rescue

Here at GoMo News we are big fans of a music station which is called ‘Chill‘ for obvious reasons because that’s the kind of music it offers. Now in the past, we’ve been able to access this station by various means. But lately, it has proved nearly impossible to listen to this Internet radio station via an ordinary browser. We’re not entirely sure why. In our search for a solution we came across an app named Radioplayer – which is designed to enable users to listen to a wide range of digital stations across the UK. The big surprise for us was the fact that the BBC [Beeb] is a backer/benefactor of this app.

The reason we’re surprised is that the BBC is a quasi-governmental organisation to which all Brits are forced to pay an incredibly high annual fee.

Yet, the Beeb has just got together with rival digital music station owners to produce a single app that lets users tune into virtually every single UK Internet radio station there is.

Including our beloved Chill (sometimes known as Chill DAB). Now Chill’s own web site offers a number of options for listening to its music.

One of these is to run an app capable of playing .m3u streaming feeds
such as this feed for Chill.

We tried various m3u players but they were extremely difficult to use. However, the updated version of the Radioplayer isn’t difficult. It’s easy.

You can download the Android version of the radioplayer app from here.

Mobile Messaging App ‘Yo’ Updated with Additional Functionality

yo 650

Mobile messaging app Yo has been updated with new features, bringing additional functionality to the platform, without removing its simplicity. Users can now allow others to view their real names, rather than usernames, while a Yo Index allows users to find services that are interesting and useful for them, as examples.

With this update, users can help their friends stop the confusion associated with their (perhaps) random usernames, as they can opt-in to allow their friends to view their full name and photo when swiping right on their username.

Elsewhere, the app now supports the ability to open links attached to “Yos.” An asterisk next to a Yo indicates an attachment exists, and users tap on the notification to open the link. Using this technology, when a user’s favorite online “things,” from Instagram users to tech blogs, post new content, the Yo notification will include a link to quickly access it. This also allows users to send link attachments by copying and pasting links into Yos before sending them.

As for the Yo Index, users can browse services supporting sites like Craigslist, Instagram, IFTTT, Fedex deliveries and more. When signing up for these, users enter the appropriate information and are scheduled to receive a Yo when certain triggers occur. For instance, if using the Instagram service, users could favorite certain usernames and receive a Yo when those users post new photos to the platform.

For Craigslist, users copy and paste search URLs to be “Yo’d” when a new item is listed matching that result (say, when looking for a new dining room table). Users can even receive a Yo when the Yo Index is updated with newly available services.

Finally, the app’s new hashtag support allows users to Yo any hashtag they’d like, showing their love for a television show or celebrity, a cause or charity, and so on. These hashtags are added just as one would add a new friend to their Yo list. Once added, users can tap the hashtag to Yo it, and swipe on the hashtag to view the number of times it has been Yo’d by others. A trending hashtags page is available for users to track the most popular hashtags on the service.

Yo became a household name in June 2014, when the inventor, Or Arbel, received $ 1 million in funding from investors to grow the service. The app is available to download for free on iOS and Android.

Google+ app updated with Chromecast support [APK Download]

google_plus_logo_720

Amongst the various bug and stability fixes bundled into the latest Google+ update, Google have also added a pretty significant feature, allowing you to cast your Google+ stream to Chromecast.

Whilst you’re casting the app, you can browse the posts on your feed like you would in the app. The Chromecast will show a pretty much identical mirror of your feed as your device shows.

As soon as you’re running the Google+ app version 4.5, you should see the cast button appear.

You can download the latest Google+ version 4.5 APK here:

  1. AndroidFileHost mirror

Why Download?

If you’re the type of person who likes to stay on the cutting edge of software then you’ll want to get your hands on the file. And, given software updates can take days or weeks to fully roll out, this ensures you’re moving up in the line.

What’s the Risk?

We’ll only share files or links to files that we feel can be trusted. Google does a great job of signing apps, checking them for malware, and protecting users. If you’re not sure whether you want to download the app at this time, simply wait for your update to arrive. No harm, no foul.
