Update

Software update for T-Mobile, AT&T HTC One M9 now available

A couple of weeks ago, Taiwanese phone maker HTC has finally responded to the complaints of One M9 owners who were saying that the camera's 20 megapixel sensor couldn't handle low light situations and macroshots. That's a bit frustrating because of our high expectations but at least there's less noise, more vibrant colors, and more details can be captured. Good thing a software update was released and it did improve photo quality and some photos were even showcased for comparison.

Adobe Lightroom update: RAW support, access to microSD

Sometimes, you need to work on your photographs in the RAW. Okay, we don't actually mean photo editing while you're butt naked, but if you're a real photographer, you know we mean the RAW file format, or the yet "unprocessed" shots you take with your camera. The latest update to Adobe Lightroom brings you the ability to work with RAW images, but with a slight caveat, especially if you're using older Android devices.

BBC Sports app now has widget for top stories

With the sheer number of apps that we have installed on our smartphones and tablets, we don't get to open them everyday (unless you do need them for work or school). But what if you really wanted to be updated about something that interests you but you don't have time to open up the app everyday? If your interest is sports, then you'd probably be happy that the BBC Sports app's newest update is giving you a widget to make things easier for you.

Chrome 42 now allows push notifications, APIs now available

Almost anything can be done or shared on the Internet right now. The web has proved to us time and again its power to bring information to anyone, anywhere, and anytime. If a person or a brand wants to share an idea, one can easily create a website that provides information and offer a rich online experience. More and more people are going mobile now so it's important that websites adapt and adjust by giving a better mobile experience to people.

Twitter releases new free-for-all DM settings (if you want to)

While it is fun to have public conversations on social media, there are some discussions that need to be taken to a more private setting. And if that convo you're having is on Twitter, your best recourse is Direct Messaging. But what if the person/entity is not following you or you're not following them? An awkward "Please follow me" is not great to see on your timeline. Good thing Twitter has now changed the way we can use DMs for a (hopefully) better interaction.

DashClock Widget app finally updated with Material Design

There may be dozens to hundreds of clock and timer apps available on the Google Play Store but only a few have caught our attention. One worthy app was the DashClock Widget app released in 2013. Its developer Roman Nurik last updated the app in December of the same year and launched another app, the Muzei live wallpaper, in February 2014. Since then, we didn't hear from him until another update for the DashClock is ready. Yep, the widget is now back with some Material Design and Android Lollipop sweetness.

Google+ brings changes, Material Design to Communities pages

While we're still pretty unsure how Google+ will eventually play out, given the changes that have been happening to a number of Google-related products, that does not stop their developers from making changes and improvements to the app. The latest aspect of the social network to receive a make-over is its Communities pages, bringing the ubiquitous Material Design animation and some other physical changes to the page.

Back up and restore your WhatsApp account on Google Drive

It seems that the folks over at WhatsApp are keeping pretty busy, bringing us updates every few days or so. The latest one, still in beta and not yet available on the Google Play Store update, allows you to back-up your conversations onto Google Drive. That means if you need "evidence" about a conversation you had that your friend is denying, you can just pull a file that you backed up on the cloud.

Android Wear gets new hands free gestures, phone free usage in update

You feel the hype for smartwatches and wrist-based wearables slowly plateauing, but Google is still very much committed to pushing for the maturity of Android Wear as a platform. As more and more people find it close to normal to access their notifications and messages from their wrist, Android Wear is looking to bring newer features to make this interaction more natural.
