Deezer update: lyrics you can read or sing-along to

With the continued popularity of Spotify (despite Taylor Swift's break-up with them) and Google creating YouTube Music Key, competition in the music streaming service has never been tougher.

Coffee messaging app lets you text easily on Android Wear

While smartwatches have made our communication and digital lives a little bit easier, it is still very limited, with most of the wearables just showing us notifications of incoming calls, messages or app activities.

Minuum update: multiple languages at once, material design

With the global community becoming smaller and more connected due to the Internet and digital technology, more and more people are becoming bilingual or even multi-lingual, in either business and/or in their personal lives. Sometimes, when communicating with other people, they even use two or more languages at the same time. Virtual keyboard Minuum is giving this kind of users an easier time by giving the app simultaneous multilingual capabilities.

Samsung shutting down ChatOn in all markets except in the US

Maybe you own a Samsung smartphone device and you noticed one of the apps there that keeps getting updated but you’ve never used it (but you can’t delete it out of there as well) – it’s called ChatOn, and it was supposed to be Samsung’s competition for iMessage, a Samsung-only messaging tool. But it never really caught on, and after many denials that the South Korean gadget giant was killing the app, they finally officially announced that they were ditching ChatOn.

Yahoo Weather app on Android now with animated effects

There are a lot of weather apps available but nothing is as stunning as Yahoo Weather. I've tried a number of related apps but I would always go back to Yahoo because of the beautiful images. The app recently received an update with animated effects like fog, heat, lighting, frost, rain, and snow. All you need to do is look at the app and you'll immediately know the weather outside. No need to open the windows because you'll know what's going on outside just by looking at your screen.

Tile App now available on Android to help forgetful people

A few months ago we talked about the Tile tag that will be the saviour of absent-minded people or those who just seem to always lose their stuff. The accompanying app that will make it easier for you to locate all these lost gadgets or umbrellas or wallets or handkerchiefs, are now available for your Android smartphones and tablets. Of course it will only work if you have one or more Tile tags so if you don't have it yet, you can still read on and maybe you'll get one afterwards.

Major Fleksy update brings virtual keyboard extensions to your phone

Virtual keyboard apps have become an in thing for those dissatisfied with their device's native typing pad. One of the most popular ones out there is Fleksy and we think they're about to become even more popular with their biggest update to date, bringing keyboard extensions, including the (almost) always fun world of GIFs to your fingers. And if "extensions" sounds like such a boring feature, wait til you see what you can now do without leaving the app you're currently typing on.

Microsoft Xim 1.3 share your photos onto the bigscreen

Picture sharing is a great way to communicate with your friends and family and is essentially the core of most social media today. Microsoft Xim is an app that lets you share your photos with friends and family through their own phone. Usually when you have a photo you’d like to share, your friends would gather around you to see. Now you don’t have to worry about the overcrowding, Xim hosts the pictures onto your friends’ phone and lets you browse through the pictures together. Today Xim has come out with a new update that lets you share photos from your phone to the big screen.

Inbox by Gmail now with better Android Wear, tablet support

While Inbox, the separate email app released by Gmail last October, is still in the invite-only stage (remember, that's how Gmail started a long time ago?), the user base is steadily growing, with some eagerly waiting for their friends to let them in on all the email fun. Now the latest update to the app brings you better support for both Android Wear supported wearables as Android-run tablets.
