If you're one of those who were longing to get an Inbox invite so you could use the other Gmail app that people have been talking about, you don't need to wait anymore. Google has opened up the mobile email app to the public, and has even added the most requested features from those who were lucky enough to get the invite and have been using it since October. So now, you can use Inbox to make it easier to sort through and group together your Gmail, whether on mobile or on desktop.

Wear Mini Launcher lets you manage apps in your smartwatch

Unlike with smartphones where you can still survive without an app launcher, Android Wear smartwatches aren't that great yet when it comes to managing and launching apps. You'd have to rely on apps like Wear Mini Launcher in order to quickly find the tools you need at that moment when you need it. Aside from getting to the apps, you also get to customize your settings and options so that it's easier for you to manage your smartwatch, even without opening your smartphone.

New Opera Max gets WiFi data-savings feature

Data-savings app Opera Max has just been updated. This app has been helping a lot of Android users conserve their precious data by managing and monitoring data usage.

tinyCam Pro update brings background video recording 24/7

Surveillance cameras are now becoming common among digital natives, as they stay away from their homes for longer periods of time, either for work or travel or just socializing. But you probably don't spend all your time away just staring at your camera feed right (unless you have that really weird compulsion). One of the more popular apps that help you monitor what's going on in front of your IP camera is bringing a solution to that problem, so you wouldn't need to always be watching.

Facebook Messenger adds “chat ID” for first-time chat buddies

All of us who use Facebook Messenger have probably experienced this once or more than once. A message from an unknown person suddenly pops up and he/she seems to know you or have met you recently, but for the life of you, you have no idea who they are and so you don't know whether to talk to them or not. Sometimes you ignore them and miss an opportunity or sometimes you do talk to them and waste precious minutes of your life.
