Google’s App Streaming lets you try out games inside ads

Last month Google revealed a rather intriguing new technology to its mobile search. App Streaming basically embedded a portion of an app's experience right inside Google's search results, giving users a foretaste and teaser of what the full app offers.

And ad makers can also make use of customized and highly interactive ads to rope in more users to their apps.

Google released a new virtual reality app called Cardboard Camera today; with it, users can record their own 360-degree photos for viewing with a Cardboard headset.

Some say we live in a fastlane generation, where everything is almost instant and always right at our fingertips, from instant noodles to microwave meals to the apps that give fast access to content and services.

Have you ever thought what it would be like to harness the connectivity of social networks like Facebook and put a more professional spin to it? Well, LinkedIn was born from that idea and, despite all odds, continues to exist to this day. The experience it offers, however, hasn't been a smooth ride.

Microsoft PowerApps turns any worker into a programmer

Learning how to code, usually to make apps, has become a topic of debate among the IT, education, government sectors, with some advocating teaching it as a core skill like writing and math. Most, if not all, these thrusts, however, focus on educating kids, leaving adults to fend for themselves. After all, grownups can learn faster and better, right?

That is perhaps why Microsoft has launched the PowerApps platform to let grownups in workplaces build their own apps, no coding required.

Adobe distances itself from Flash, Flash Pro becomes Animate CC

Once the darling of web designers, Flash has of late become more of a liability than an asset. The Web at large and the tech giants behind it have called for its death. That puts Adobe in a very difficult position, being one of the standard bearers of good design but also the owner of Flash. But it has seen the writing on the wall and has started to embrace, even move over to, more accepted equivalent HTML5 and WebGL technologies. And nowhere is that more evident than in its latest slew of updates.
