As an Android user, have you ever felt that Google Play has just too many freaking apps, and the overwhelming majority of them aren't very good at all? Having many apps is good, but wading through ten apps that do the same thing, just to find out that only one is actually worth your time while three are outdated, three are awfully bloated, and the rest is ad-riddled like a cheap newspaper? That, frankly, sucks. SlideME, which is a well kept, well looked after third-party app store, wants to remedy these woes.Those running the store manually inspect and review app submissions, judging apps like regular users would - based on meaning and value. Hence, the place is kept clean of junk apps, scams, and other types of apps you absolutely shouldn't touch without surgical gloves on. The quality over quantity approach works quite well, and there's another concept at play here, which could appeal to many users over the globe - SlideME apps are curated to function on AOSP-based devices, hence … [Read more...] about Spotlight: SlideME is a junk-free alternative to the Google Play app store

Likewise, the broader range content available today means that several key apps comprise the Google Play family. To better unify its Play-related services, Google is now rolling out some tweaks to the app icons on Android, which all now take a play button-like aesthetic.

As noted in an official blog post on the matter:The old icons, as seen below, will be phased out over the next couple of weeks in favor of the new look (above). Not a groundbreaking adjustment, by any means. But if we had to pick, we'd say that the new play-shaped icons are an improvement on the older look. Do you agree, or would you rather Google left them be? Let us know of your thoughts below. … [Read more...] about Google Play app icons get a refreshed new look
