Swiftkey, Instagram, Google Maps and Google+ For Android Updated!

Over the last few days, quite a lot of Android apps have got major updates. First in the list is the best keyboard available for Android, Swiftkey. The latest update to the keyboard introduces a couple of sub-par themes, support for new languages like Malay and Urdu, and finally brings dictation support for devices running Ice Cream Sandwich or higher. There are also some bug-fixes, Jelly Bean compatibility fixes and UI enhancements. The updated version of the app is already live in the Play Store and can be downloaded from here.

Second in the list is Instagram. The v3.0 update of the app brings with it a new feature — Photo Maps! — along with a new UI for user profiles and other parts of the app. Photo Maps! allows users to browse all the photos clicked from their followers on a map which is being cited by Instagram as “a fun, new way of browsing photos”. The updated version can be downloaded from the Play Store.

Third in the list is Google maps. The latest update of the app brings some pretty major changes including improved transit information layer, a much more useful Location History feature that shows your visited places on a day-by-day basis and finally, a new icon.

Last but not the least, Google also updated the official Google+ app for Android. The latest version allows users to join Hangouts on air right from their mobile device. Other changes include shortcuts to creating new posts, events and sharing your location right on top. The updated Google+ app can be downloaded from here.
