This week, Google is cuddling developers. After really announcing new features for its Google Play Games services, the company is now rolling out a new version of Google Play Services, featuring three new sets of API as well as improvements to old ones.
Although Google Analytics and Google Tag Manager have been around for a while, Google is now pushing them to the forefront. Most developers might already be familiar with how the Analytics API can be used to get deeper information on how their audience use their apps. Google Tag Manager might be a bit harder to guess but it is a feature that lets developers modify parts of their apps on the fly, without having to roll out an entire app update, which might take some time. New to most ears will be the Address API which, as you might have guessed, gives developers access to addresses. This offers users the convenience in filling out forms without having to rely on Location data, which might not be the same as the address they want to use.
There are also some additional features to existing API as well. As reported earlier today, the Google Play Games gets support for virtual gifting, multiplayer on iOS, and the Unity game development platform. Coming by way of this update are improvements to the Drive API which was just released in last month’s update. New features include the ability to pin folders for offline access, creating folders that is invisible to users and are only accessible by the app, as well as callback notifications so that developers won’t have to manually query Google Drive just to check if a file or folder has changed.
End users need not worry about this update, as everything will be updated in the background, no intervention necessary. Developers in the crowd might have to wait just a wee bit for the rollout to complete before they start downloading the new Google Play Services SDK.

Adobe Revel is now available on Android. iOS users have been using Adobe Revel since 2011 to store and share their photos with select groups of family and friends. Starting now, Android users can view, share and store their photos too.
Adobe Revel is a photo storage service in which users can build albums to organize photos and videos. Photos and albums remain private by default. Users can then invite other Revel users to participate with specific albums, so that everyone can upload and enjoy each others photos. With the Android app, Revel now works across most major devices so that the whole family can get involved. Access to your photos is also convenient as your albums sync across all of your connected devices.
The Revel app on Android has a few basic editing tools, then integrates with Photoshop and other Adobe creative tools for those that really want to get their photos just right.
Adobe Revel is available as a free download in the Google Play Store. Enjoy unlimited photo uploads for the first 30 days, but then be prepared to upgrade to a .99/month plan, or continue on free with some restrictions. If you happen to be looking for a Google+ Photos replacement, you’ll want to also install the Revel Importer app, which will upload all current photos on your device, then auto-upload any new photos you take, just like Google+ does.
How many Revel users out there have been waiting for this Android app? If you’ve used both, do you prefer Revel over Google+?

Happy 2014! There is no better day to launch a new website than January 1st, so we’re doing just that. Today we welcome Smartwatch Fans to the Mobile Nations family!!
We’re incredibly excited to launch SmartwatchFans.com. We actually entered 2013 thinking it was the year we needed to go beyond phones and build a new “connected accessories” community to join the ranks of Android Central, CrackBerry, iMore and Windows Phone Central. As we discussed throughout Talk Mobile 2013, mobile is about so much more than just phones these days. The problem is, with the “internet of things” growing so big, so fast and penetrating into every area of life, it’s really hard to define the scope of where a new community like that would begin and end. As we’ve learned over the years, a successful tech community needs a focus.
Just as Mobile Nations was there at the beginning of the smartphone era over a decade ago, we’ve been part of the modern smartwatch era since its earliest beginnings too
With 2013 winding down and no new site launched yet, it was actually CrackBerry’s Managing Editor Adam Zeis who lost patience with the indecisiveness and took the initiative and got the ball rolling with Smartwatch Fans. Thinking on it now, it was really a no brainer that our next community be focused on smartwatches. It just makes so much sense.
