Google Play Store APK leaks, offers new features

Google Play Store APK leaks, offers new features
The Google Play Store APK for version 4.4.21 has been leaked and can be installed on many Android models right now. As we've already pointed out last week, the only real change is the addition of the three line hamburger navigation menu that leads to a slide-out panel. This is all the rage these days among your cutting-edge code jockeys.

While no launch date for KitKat has been announced, we could see it released along with the Google Nexus 5 as soon as Monday. Whichever date Google ultimately selects to launch Android 4.4 will probably include the release of the Google Play Store update. Besides the new navigation menu, the update also kills bugs and enhances the performance of the Google Play Store. The APK file should be compatible with your Android powered device running Android 2.2 or higher.

If you decide to install the APK, let us know what you think of the update. All this talk about hamburgers is making us hungry, so let's leave you with the link to the file right here.

Is it true that a nexus 10 (2013) is coming out or leaked?

The Nexus 5 is pretty much confirmed. The Nexus 10 is a lot of speculation. It would fit within the fall announcement, but there hasn't been too much in the way of leaks. They say it's going to be made by Asus, but often times it turns out to be TF 701T.

Don't know how, but I got the official automatic update yesterday :))) Seems to be faster. Wished we had an option to switch between white and black themes!

I don't know how this apk has "leaked" when it is officially rolling out to devices. My Epic Touch got the update a couple days ago. I don't really care for it because I'm used to pressing the Menu button then tapping My Apps to look for app updates.

Thanks for the update, it was taking forever to get the apk for my Droid Ultra to actually download after doing all the workarounds until you leaked this one for the ones that didn't have it yet.

My Coolpad Quattro officially got the update today so that date was right, except the Nexus part.
