Touchscreen kiosks to help navigate NYC subway starts roll-out

New York City has started to add interactive maps to help passengers of the subway system. Gizmodo reports that the first 18 MTA On-The-Go kiosks have been installed in the Grand Central subway station, with the MTA and Control Group project using 47-inch touchscreen displays that show train arrival estimates, scheduled departures, and a map which helps plan a route through the system with warnings of potential issues. A wider rollout to more stations is expected to take place by mid-2014.

Google updates Play Music for Android with downloadable Radio stations

Google Play Music for Android has been updated, allowing users of its subscriber-only Radio feature to download stations for offline listening. Android Police notes the update also adds a new "My devices" management and deauthorization panel, the option to manually refresh music from the cloud, extra options in the sidebar, a "play next" button, and a number of other bug fixes and performance improvements.
