Google might have just announced they plan to bring Google Play Music All Access to iOS in a matter of weeks, but that doesn't mean you can't try the service out right now. Independent offering, gMusic, was recently updated to support Google's new streaming service, and then updated again to remove some of the bugs. In lieu of having an official app yet, and with an All Access subscription burning a hole in my ears, lets see if gMusic hits the right note.
Google's SVP of Android and Chrome, Sundar Pichai, dropped a pretty huge piece of news our way at the D11 conference; Google Play Music All Access is coming to iOS. Currently, there's unofficial apps that will get you into Google's new streaming service, but it's pretty huge news that Google is bringing it to iOS in an official capacity.
Google's Gmail is the next service from Mountain View to go through an overhaul, and today they're showing off what is rolling out across the desktop and to iOS. The aim; to give back control of your inbox to you.
The incredibly smart and well groomed folks over at Android Central have done their typically masterful job distilling down the current crop of flagships and picking their favorite Android phone of bunch -- the HTC One. But is the iPhone 5 even better for Google users?
If you're looking for an excursion within six specific U.S. cities, then Google's Field Trip application wants to help you out. Within Portland, LA, Chicago, Washington DC, New York City and San Francisco, Field Trip is offering free entry to a total of 13 different museums.
Hangouts for iPhone and iPad is Google's new cross-platform messaging app that lets you converse with your friends regardless of what phone, tablet, or computer they are using. It features a beautiful, clean design and support for video messaging.
Earlier today Google posted some iOS code aimed at helping developers use a combination of URL schemes and x-callback to basically set Chrome as the default browser from within their own apps, if it detects the user has Chrome installed. Call it a hijack, call it a take over, call it a 5th column, call it whatever you want, but it's a smart, strategic move on Google's part, and it's something Apple will have to address. Here's why...
UPDATE: Looks like it's a third party port made by an enthusiast, at least according to the post Google+. So keep moving, nothing to see here. Although, the question remains, would you play Ingress if an official version does come to iOS?
Google’s popular Android game Ingress looks like it may be making its way to iOS at some point in the future. A Github repository has been found that contains resources for an iPhone version of the game, including links to gameplay videos.
Google has released code that gives developers the ability to have links open directly in Google Chrome instead of Apple's built-in Safari browser, and return users right back to their app with a single tap. A developer has to add Google's code -- a URL scheme with x-callback -- to their app, and you have to have Chrome installed on your device, but the execution is seamless. The example used on the Chromium blog blog is YouTube: tapping on a link in a YouTube listing opens Chrome and provides a back button at the top left to easily return to the YouTube app.
