Photojojo Disposable Camera app hits iPhone

Photojojo Disposable Camera app hits iPhone

There's a photo store by the name of Photojojo, one that's taken advantage of the change-over from analog to digital every step of the way. Now they're going retro. Now they've got a so-called "disposable camera" app that prints photos for you from Photojojo's own printing facilities, sending them to you in the mail after you've taken said photos. Just like a normal disposable camera (which do still exist, mind you), but easier. With big card prints for you, just like your parents held so dear. So very hipster of you.

As the future release of Windows 10 draws nearer, Microsoft continues to make progress by releasing regular updates to its preview program.

RSS app Reeder 3 for Mac update teased

While the technology behind RSS hasn't changed in years, and its use may sometimes appear to be on the decline with services like Twitter often being used for website updates, the shutdown of Google Reader in 2013 showed there is still a widespread desire for a RSS syncing service. In the wake of Google Reader, services like Feedly and Feedbin rose to prominence, and with them the client Reeder was updated to version 2 to take advantage of more services. Now it looks version 3 of the Mac app is on its way, with an overhaul to match the changes brought about by OS X Yosemite.

Gmail unified inbox puts all your mail in one place

There's an update to Gmail this week that will allow you - on your mobile device - to push all your email into one, single inbox. This is not the "Inbox" app, nor is it a destruction of the separate email boxes like Social, Promotions, and Updates. Instead, it's a central place where you can get email from all of your different accounts, be they all Gmail, Yahoo, Outlook, or whatever you happen to be using. All in one, single Inbox, that'll forever overflow for the rest of time.

Periscope for Android missing: underscoring the iPhone problem

Periscope for Android missing: underscoring the iPhone problem

There are two ways to look at the situation with Twitter's re-launch of Periscope (for iPhone only). One is a show of power - such a massive number of people use the iPhone - any number of generations of iPhone - that Twitter will develop an app that launches on that platform first, and exclusively (for a short period of time.) The other way to look at the situation is that Twitter is ignoring the first-wave early adopter crowd with Periscope, the same way competing service Meekrat still has no Android service weeks after launch.
