Android Apps News Not to Miss This Week

  1. Beme lost its founding members. Matt Hackett and Casey Neistat no longer are part of the project. This gives creators a chance at a fresh start. The staff from Beme get to stay with CNN should they want to.
  2. App Annie released one of the semi-annual app store reports. The reports indicate many of the same stuff. Google Play had hugely more downloads compared to the App
    Store of Apple. Nevertheless, the App Store acquired nearly twice as much revenue. Most of the non-gaming revenue of Google Play was productivity subscriptions, especially for cloud storage. Otherwise, it is mostly the same as it was the other year.
  3. Now, YouTube has 300,000 subscribers. This is still pretty far away from the competition. Still, it indicates fairly significant growth. YouTube TV is not that old and is growing fast. Sling TV continues to reign with two million while DirectTV Now trails behind with one million.
  4. Nintendo announced the end of Miitomo. The weird half-social, half-game title of the company had a fast start but rapidly became a foot note. The application removed all in app purchases in preparation. There’s one final event for players prior to shut down. Otherwise, the game will continue until shutdown. Nintendo plans to shut doors on May 9, 2018.
  5. Google took another shot at Amazon this week. This time YouTube removed from Silk Browser its optimized version. This means that those with Fire TVs have to do it in the old fashioned way, with normal desktop User Interface. It’s hard to use with a remote. The feud goes on and likely would be or a while.
