Adobe has treated its Photoshop Express application for Android to a fresh update via the Play Store. The upgrade brings a much-needed makeover to the app, in addition to a handful of exciting new features. Included is the option for users to save photographs to their Creative Cloud Library for further editing on the Photoshop desktop software. I’ve already installed the update on my Galaxy S7 edge, and can honestly say that the revamped UI looks great. Sadly, it doesn’t quite meet Google’s attractive Material Design standards — and it’s a bit rough around the edges — but it’s still a massive improvement over the previous interface and gives the application a whole new lease of life.
After Instagram released a feature today that looked a lot like Snapchat, it seems teens are really embracing it. The feature allows Instagram users to create “Stories” much like you would on Snapchat. In fact, let’s not mince words: it’s exactly like Snapchat. Teens, as you probably already know, love Snapchat, so the move seems to be a power play by Instagram to attract more of the users it’s losing to other services.

Twitter Fabric is a mainstay for developers who want to build better apps, but has been limited to a Web-based interface. Now it’s available on iOS and Android.

In the run up to Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2016, Canonical has released details of its next Ubuntu OS smartphone to come to market, and it offers the highest spec of any phone running the platform so far. The Meizu Pro 5 Ubuntu Edition keeps with the existing trend of manufacturers repurposing existing devices to run Canonical’s OS – in this case the Pro 5 that runs Meizu’s own Flyme 5 OS, which is itself a fork of Android. Hardware-wise, the Pro 5 is no slouch and the Ubuntu Edition will offer up a 1080p 5.7-inch Corning Gorilla Glass AMOLED display, Samsung’s Exynos 7420 octa-core processor (such as found in the Galaxy S6 Edge, Edge+ and regular S6 models), 21-megapixel Sony sensor for the rear camera and a fingerprint reader for biometric unlocking.

No matter what level of profession you’re in, networking is the fuel to accelerate your success. Not only is it useful for learning directly from individuals you meet, but the benefits of association and growing your own authority are just as powerful. For some of us, hearing the word “networking” can leave a bad taste in our mouths. Many of us aren’t sure where to start, what to say when we connect with someone, nor how to maintain that relationship.
It’s 10:36pm and you finally got a few minutes to spend with your significant other, after a 14-hour day of hustling up business for your startup. You’re going to relax and watch the next episode of House of Cards. Maybe some of Mr. Underwood’s negotiating skills and charisma will rub off on you. You sure could use it for the meeting you have the next afternoon with a couple of investors.
This is one of their selling points: We are using the same technology we used ten years ago, to build a phone Goes to show new and more isn’t always better. It’s a Kickstarter project and at the time of writing this they’ve reached $54,115 of their $200,000 goal with 41 days to go. Even though it’s a great concept and I would love to own one of these there’s a close resemblance to John’s Phone, a very similar basic phone project from 2010.
