Twitter and Instagram haven’t been the best of pals lately. After the latter was acquired by Facebook, Instagram quietly pulled the ability to display image previews on Twitter, making people view the images on their own new site.
Since then, there have been rumors that Twitter might introduce a newer version of its own official app for iOS and Android, that adds the ability to use image filters for photos taken within the app before uploading them. And the update has now become official. Read more »
It’s no secret that Apple’s new Maps application that debuted with iOS 6 has been an unmitigated failure. Outside of a few key locations in the US, the mapping data has been woefully inaccurate in most places around the world and although it is improving, it’s still pretty bad.
Providing further proof of its incompetency is the latest news from Mildura, Australia, where the local police are expressing concerns over Apple’s mapping data and asking users to be careful while using it. Read more »

The previous Gmail app for iOS is the most famous Google-made app for iOS, but for all the wrong reasons. Although a lot of people did use it because it included support for push mail that the native iOS client lacks for Gmail, it was nothing more than a wrapper for the mobile web version of the service, which rubbed people the wrong way.

The new client looks nothing like the old one and is more in line with other recent iOS apps released by Google, such as Google+, Google Search, Google Drive and YouTube. Gone is the web-UI like design of the previous version, replaced by a clean, minimalist and spacious design. Read more »

Recently, Chrome has been expanding its reach to mobile territory but growth has been slowed by its requirements – unlike the stock Android browser, Chrome runs only on Android 4.0 and above (and 2.3 Gingerbread still holds over half the market).
According to Net Marketshare‘s numbers, Chrome is the browser of choice on 4.03% of Android devices. Those Nexus devices that come with Chrome only probably helped push the numbers up. Read more »
