Get around town a little easier with new offline features and ride service options

"We’ve all been through this -- whether in our own backyard or a different country. You need to get directions, but you don’t have service. Or you do have service – but it’s spotty – so you find yourself staring at the map in a perpetual state of loading while you sit in your car waiting to find out which way to go.

Now, when you know you’ll have spotty service or just want to save on data, you can toggle to “Wi-fi only” to use Google Maps entirely offline on Android. And the best part is that you can still use other apps and the rest of your phone as you normally would.

You might even save on battery life too..."

Why You Should Only Install Apps from Google Play Store on Android Devices

You have undoubtedly seem many stories about dangerous malware which could do all sorts of nasty things to your Android devices or how many Android apps contain malware. The overwhelming majority, however, have an important important note buried in them (probably buried because it kills the newsworthiness of the stories) saying that the malware has not been found in apps from the Google Play Store.

One of the favorite tricks of malware developers is to add malware to versions of well known apps and games and offer them to you on other sites. The apps and games appear to be legitimate to users, but they are doing nasty things under the surface -- but that's how a lot of malware works. Install the infected version of an app or game, and your device is infected.

The fact is that Google provides tremendous protection with thorough checking to make sure apps you obtain from them are safe, so you are safe from almost all of these malware risks unless you install apps from other sources. To provide an extra level of protection, quality versions of Android include a setting which prevents apps and games from other sources from being installed. You can -- and must -- turn it off if you want to use other sources than Google Play Store. Once you do that, however, you open the door to installing malicious apps from anywhere.

The attached article goes into this in more detail and provides a clear example of the risks, but the bottom line is simple: Saving a couple of bucks, getting an app a few days early, or falling back to a previous version of an app because you don't like the latest update isn't worth the risks involved.
