Twitter’s revamped “quote tweet” functionality coming soon to Android

This is a common occurrence for Twitter users. You see a tweet that you really, really like but instead of just retweeting it, you'd like to add a short comment or reaction. Unfortunately, the 140 character rule means that you can't fully express your comment, which defeats the purpose of the quote tweet. Or you sometimes just use an emoji, which is always not enough. The micro-blogging giant has announced they are revamping this functionality, and hopefully, it will reach Android soon.

You can make faster Hangouts voice calls when new update rolls out

If you're not satisfied with just chatting with colleagues or friends over Hangouts and have been dependent on making voice calls through the app and/or desktop, chances are you've noticed that it's not as fast as it should be. Don't worry, it's not just your carrier's fault, but it's the connection speed within some of Google's apps like Gmail and Inbox where you can also make the voice calls. But a new update to the apps and to the desktop will solve that problem and allow you to make faster calls.

Mailbox for Android receives Material Design update

Long before there was Inbox by Gmail, the whole app that started us going for a zero inbox as one of our digital goals was Dropbox' own Mailbox. When it finally arrived on Android devices, we were quite pleased that getting rid of those 2,000+ emails was going to be easier now while using our mobile gadgets. The latest update to the app now makes it look like a true-blue Google app, at least in certain aspects.

You can now send photos through BitTorrent’s Bleep messaging app

A few months after BitTorrent launched the Alpha version of their messaging app Bleep, we're finally getting an update. If before you can only send messages and make voice calls to the app, now as promised, you can add exchanging pictures into the equation. There are also a few minor tweaks added, but the app is still in the Alpha mode, although they are already laying the groundwork for the beta version soon.

Reddit apps edited, renamed due to policy change

Some changes happened over at reddit recently. Some reddit apps' names have been changed. The name change happened because of a revision in the licensing policy of reddit to access their API. The reddit team specifically wants third-party apps to use "for reddit" in the title of the app. This policy change warns developers not to use "reddit" without the word "for" at the beginning of the title of the app. Because of this, Reddit News app has been renamed to 'Relay for reddit' and the Reddit Now app is now called 'Now for Reddit'. Confused? Don't be. Only names have been changed.

HTC replaces Blinkfeed app with Sense Home

The highly anticipated new flagship from HTC isn't out in the market yet, but they're already giving users a preview of what to expect from the HTC One M9 by changing the Blinkfeed app into a different creature altogether. When you update you Blinkfeed now, it will turn into HTC Sense Home, which is one of the main features they were bragging about regarding the soon-to-be-released (hopefully) smartphone from the OEM.

Evernote 7 now optimized for Android tablets

When Evernote 7 first came out for Android smartphones almost a month ago, users were pretty happy with the Material Design update, new collaborative features, and user-requested enhancements. But of course that was created just for the smaller screen and those of us who used tablets more often to access the note-taking and productivity app wished that it would also be optimized for larger screens. Well, they took their sweet time and now they're finally bringing the latest update for Android tablets.

Skype update brings more emojis, speech to text

Most of the messaging apps that are really popular in the market sometimes have more than just the ability to send text messages going for them. In fact, a lot of them do not rely on actual text or words but on little drawings, icons that allow you to express yourself better. Skype is still primariy a communication platform, where you can have both personal and business conversations, serious and fun as well. The newest update brings a bit more emphasis on the fun.

Rounds Video Chat app offers fun, reliable group calls

There are hundreds of chat apps out there and ready for download from the Google Play Store but only a few are really fun and entertaining. Conversations must run smoothly and without any interruptions all the time. The Rounds Video Chat & Group Call app allows more than just video calls and sending of text messages.

As with any other instant messaging apps, you can also create group chats and chatrooms so more people can communicate in one place.

Google News & Weather update: breaking news, personalized suggestions

There are a lot of personalized news services out there, like Flipboard, Zite, Feedly, etc, so you'll never run out of ways to curate and receive the news that you really care about. But if you are a Google fanboy/girl, and you are dependent on their eco-system, then the Google News & Weather, as minimalist as it is, will have a certain appeal for you. The newest update to the app brings even more improvements into the way they personalize your news and also the way you receive them.
