The NFL has released a new app, NFL Now, geared to users who prefer to get their NFL updates through videos. The app gives users access to new videos added daily, including real-time highlights served up on game days. Users can also access, for a fee, the NFL Films archive of shows. The NFL promises all of the content can be accessed through an easy-to-use interface for displaying content on your phone or tablet. While it seems like an app of this nature screams out for the ability to connect to a Chromecast, there is no indication that users can do that.

Automattic, the company behind the creation of WordPress, has added an app to the Play Store called “Selfies.”
The app does pretty much what you’d expect it to. Nothing too fancy, but its simplicity might be its strength.
“Selfies” lets users take selfies, caption and filter them, and share them into a stream that can be seen by other users. So basically it’s Instagram for selfies but with a much smaller user base. You can also react to other people’s selfies with your own selfies, adding a Snapchat-like feature to the app.
The chances that this app hits the big time and catches on with the masses is pretty low (considering the saturation of the selfies app market), but the app is still in its infancy, so we’ll see where it goes from here. Hit the break for the link to the app in the Play Store as well as a photo gallery of screenshots.

The development team at QCast wants to see people at parties make use of a host’s Chromecast to help everyone get their groove on by creating and sharing group playlists using their new QCast Music app. At least one person in a group needs to have a Google Play Music All Access account to serve as the host. QCast indicates they hope to add more music services in the future. The person with the All Access subscription connects to a Chromecast and from there other guests can connect to the shared queue using the QCast Music app. Songs are added by searches that tap into the All Access service to get results.
