IFTTT rebrands app, releases three new stand-alone widgets

If you're a true-blue digital native, you know that IFTTT (if this then that, if you want to spell it out) has made our lives a bit easier and has allowed users to concoct "recipes", depending on the triggers that they want on mobile and desktop devices.

And that's all thanks to Android's nature of openness and reusability.

Android 5 vs iOS 8 part 1: The Showdown

We all love Android here, right? Right? But let's face it. Even if we have a soft spot for the little green guy, we could be considered blind fools if we believed that Android were 100% perfect. A minor nitpick here, a pet peeve there, Android doesn't have all the answers. Sometimes, it gets the answers wrong. And sometimes, the ones with the right answers are its competitors. Here we take another look at the eternal rivalry between Android and iOS, but with a slightly different twist. This time we try to see some of the things that iOS, particularly iOS 8, may have gotten right.

Continuing its rather slow-paced expansion, Google has announced the addition of seven existing Android apps to the Chrome OS's supported roster. These Android apps, with very little to no change in their source code, will be able to run on any Chrome OS device, making it accessible from any device you might have at hand.
