Opera Max update: design changes, more control over app management

Even the most practical of apps need a design makeover every once in a while. Data management and data saving app Opera Max has undergone one, and the latest update to the app brings improvements not just in the app management functionalities, but also the aesthetic and functional design as well. And all these changes come from user feedback or most requested features from users. It’s always a good thing when developers show their users that they actually listen to their suggestions and requests.

YouTube Android app now automatically adjusts vertical videos

No matter how many video tutorials you put out there, no matter how many strangers you see taking mobile videos the wrong way in public, people will still take videos vertically. Whether it’s stubbornness, laziness, or just plain ignorance, a lot of people still take their videos vertically, even though we all know that horizontal is the right way. Some apps have resorted to just embrace it rather than whine about it. YouTube is the latest one to do so, as its Android app now recognizes and adjusts it accordingly.

Snapseed releases version 2.0.3 with minor updates

Just a few weeks after Snapseed released version 2.0, they’re providing even more updates, albeit minor, as version 2.0.3 is now being rolled out for users of the mobile photo editing app. This seems a bit surprising because before April this year, it was two years since the app received an update, after being bought by Google back in 2012. So now an update in April, June, and now July seems proof that the tech giant is not neglecting the app, despite their all out push for Google Photos, which also has a few editing capabilities.

Spotify introduces Discover Weekly personalized “mixtape” for users

They may still be one of the most popular music streaming services out there, but the emergence of competitors that are bent on enticing users to their own product means that Spotify will have to step up their game even more. Apple Music’s human-curated playlists has been making headway with music lovers, but it isn’t as personal as some would like it to be. Therefore, Spotify’s new Discover Weekly feature may be the thing that some are looking for.

Instagram adds web search but still can’t upload from browser
