The Dog Park: Week Of June 3rd

Google’s app beta system was announced back at Google I/O, and this week, some of the biggest Play Store devs decided to embrace it. Both Falcon Pro and Nova Launcher now offer beta versions of their apps through the Play Store when you join their communities. Also, a lot of tablets were announced, some good, some not so good. And on top of that, Google finally released the Android keyboard to the Play Store. Now those of us with non-stock Android phones can use Google’s really nice keyboard without having to root! Be sure to check out our new Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 review!
