Facebook image storytelling now easier with mobile update

Your social media feed may be filled with too many selfies (in which case, you should reconsider your choice of friends), but there is no doubt that storytelling through images has become the new status message. Whether it's through Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, Snapchat, etc, you would much rather scroll through photos rather than read about your friends' latest vacation stories. A new update to Facebook's mobile app now makes it easier for you to post pictures the way you want them to appear.

Textra update: customizable bubble color, Lollipop support

With free messaging apps on your smartphone becoming even more interactive and fun with stickers, video messages, etc, one of the original purposes of a cellphone is seemingly slowly getting lost or obsolete.

Chrome 38 comes out in Android with bug fixes, improvements

As the date for Android L (what it stands for is still a guessing game but it will surely be delicious) draws near, most of Google's apps have slowly been updated design-wise with the material design that will be implemented by the major update.
