Welcome back to our weekly Top 10 Android App Updates column, where we take a look at the most frequently upgraded apps for the week. We’ve found that one of the best ways to discover useful apps is to find the ones that are actually being updated by the developers rather than selecting the apps with the most installs. As in the past, we’re going to filter out minor updates for the super-popular apps that have over 10 million installs, but we’ll make exceptions for apps that have had significant updates. We hope you enjoy this weekly feature and that you discover some apps that end up being useful.
VLC for Android - Version 2.0.0
What’s new in this version:
2.0 introduces a large number of features, notably network disk browsing (Windows shares, UPnP, NFS, FTP, SFTP…)
NEW: Peripheral devices such as trackpads and Bluetooth mice can now be used to control a connected computer’s cursor.
NEW: Support for horizontal scrolling; drag two fingers left or right to scroll in that direction. This may not work when connected to third-party VNC-compatible Server software, or some older versions of VNC Server.
