Facebook Trending now on mobile, with more resources

For market researchers, social media community managers and people who are just curious what people on the Internet are talking about, Facebook's Trending feature was heaven-sent when they started it back in January. The latest update now brings this to your mobile devices and there are even more ways to read and analyze the topics you want to explore, with more resources available at the swipe of your smartphone or tablet.

Android Wear update makes quick actions quicker

The point of having a smartwatch, at least in theory, is that you can get to important notifications and actions faster than you would if you had to whip out your smartphone first. Of course, that becomes moot when you have to swipe through half a dozen screens just to get to the parts that you want or the settings that you need. Android Wear's latest update tries to address that by putting important or recent actions just a swipe or tap away from your current screen.

Facebook improves search parameters for desktop, soon on mobile

Even though you're probably on Facebook about 3-4 hours a day (maybe even more), chances are, you're probably frustrated about some things about it. One of the things that has constantly irritated users is that it will let you search people, pages, groups, places, but sometimes those are not the things you're looking for. But the social media giant has now announced they are changing all that with their new search parameters.

VLC exits beta, outs stable version

We have much love for the VLC media player – it’s an app for people working on desktops and laptops who want a media player that works with just about any media format you throw at it. It just works, and we were pretty excited when VLC wanted to bring its goods over to Android some two years ago. All that time, the VLC app for Android stayed in beta – until today, when we finally have VLC 1.0 in our hands.

Kindle for Android update: X-Ray, flashcard support

If you use Amazon's Kindle app on your Android device, you might have noticed some features on another platform that you don't have yet on your device for the past two years. Well, you need not be envious any longer as version 4.8 brings features like X-Ray and flashcard support, as well as several other enhancements to the ebook reading app. Better late than never right?

Next Lock Screen update: more personalization, weather status

Microsoft's experimental Garage Team came up with a bunch of pretty nifty Android apps ever since they started it earlier this year. One of the useful apps they developed was the Next Lock Screen, a time-saving quick launcher that lets you see the important things you need to see even when your smartphone is on locked screen mode. An update to the app now brings even more personalization options, which can be an alternative to the Android 5.0 Lollipop's new notification scheme.

New version of Feedly for Android released

Feedly is one of the Top 5 News Readers for Android.  And just recently, its developer has pushed out a new version for Android. It's still the same reliable reader app but has been enhanced to support higher resolution images. The app now features new settings theme that follows Material Design--the Holo Light and Material Light. Feedly URL shortening has retired and a new Twitter sharing has be introduced. As with most app updates, the new Feedly promises fewer freezes and crashes.

PayPal update: stay logged in, fingerprint scan for Samsung devices

A new update from PayPal will help you have easier access to the online payment system, especially if you use it frequently during the day and if you're secure enough that only you have access to your smartphone or tablet. If you have a higher end Samsung device, you will now be able to use your fingerprint scanner to open your PayPal app and account.

Twitter rolls out better picture filters for mobile app

Photo-sharing on social network sites have had to compete with mainly-photo apps like Instagram, Snapchat, etc who had a wider range of options when it comes to editing and adding filters to your precious mobile pics. And with the demise of Twitpic (whose domain and archives were bought by Twitter), sharing pictures on Twitter became a bit more simple but boring. Until now, that is, as the micro-blogging site introduces much better pic filters that of course looks a lot like Instagram.
