MS Office Delve puts the focus on People, Blogs, and Mobile

MS Office Delve puts the focus on People, Blogs, and Mobile

Last year, Microsoft revealed Office Delve, a sort of Google Now-like platform that surfaces important and timely information about work, organizations, and projects. Today, Microsoft is expanding Delve's reach into slightly new but still related territory. Like a social networking service, Delve's new People profiles give more in-depth insight into a person's activities. Delve is now also making room for blogs as a way to express ideas in a work environment. And Delve is now also doing the savvy thing and gets mobile, even smartwatch apps. Except on Windows Phone.

Blizzard’s ‘Hearthstone’ arrives on iOS and Android

Blizzard Entertainment has announced the launch of Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft for Android and iOS, bringing the strategy card game to mobile users. The interface has been rehashed so that it is better aligned with the needs of small displays, while the game itself is promised to be easy to learn and fast when played. Those who have been using the tablet, Windows, or Mac OS X versions of the game will find the smartphone version to be largely similar, including the different content and features available through those software packages.

WWDC 2015; five things we expect to see from Apple

The last year or so has been an exciting one for Apple, with significant product refreshes made across the board. We’ve also seen two new products introduced with Apple Watch and MacBook. Some of the whispers circulating after Apple’s second Watch event suggested they’d exhausted themselves, and there would be little left for WWDC. Though a lot has come to pass lately, maybe Apple got some of their light work off the desks around campus, and are about to make even bigger things happen. Curious what may be in store? Read on.

For scholarship students at WWDC, Swift is mandatory

For scholarship students at WWDC, Swift is mandatory

Swift is Apple’s new programming language that I (and clearly plenty of others) am extremely excited about. Nimble, quick, and increasingly powerful with every iteration, Swift is quickly (swiftly?) becoming the iOS language of choice. At WWDC this year, Apple is also making it requisite. Though propped up as a 'language for a later time' by many, Apple is forcing learners to pick it up yesterday. If you’re a student interested in going to WWDC on a scholarship, you have to know Swift.

CloudMagic drops ‘Pro’ subscription for unknown monetization angle

CloudMagic drops ‘Pro’ subscription for unknown monetization angle

As email apps go, CloudMagic is among the better options you might have overlooked. It has powerful tools that allow you to do things like manage multiple accounts and save content to services like Pocket. CloudMagic’s ‘Cards’ is a really handy method for redirecting content, saving attachments to another app, or send contacts to various third party services, and the app recently made small changes to support drafts. While CloudMagic shined, the company added ‘Pro’ features for $4.99/month to make it sparkle. Now, CloudMagic is dropping the ‘Pro’ angle as they search for new monetization angles.

Fleksy now has GIFs for times when words aren’t enough

Fleksy now has GIFs for times when words aren’t enough

Sometime, words won’t do. Even an acronym like ‘LOL’ sometimes fails to convey the right message. In those times, a GIF can likely help out. To help you get the right message across, Fleksy is announcing a partnership with Riffsy to bring GIFs right to their keyboard app. Coming to iOS today (and soon for Android), Fleksy’s fast-typing keyboard app will also let you quickly access GIFs. GIFs will come pre-configured in Fleksy, and the app maker claims they’re the only ones who have GIFs, emoji, and a proper keyboard in the same app.

Revamped YouTube app makes an appearance on iPhone

Revamped YouTube app makes an appearance on iPhone

YouTube may be in the process of redesigning its app for iOS. Multiple users claim that a new version of the app was briefly available for iPhones last year. Although it has since changed back to its familiar design, one clever user took some screenshots to capture the design elements before it disappeared. YouTube is rumored to be redesigning the app for Android, along with a new player for Internet. New apps developed using Material Design have been cropping up on iOS and Android, so it makes sense that YouTube is toying with a new design layout.

iOS 8.4 revamps Apple’s Music app, and the changes are “beautiful”

Apple has pushed out the iOS 8.4 beta update, and chief among its features is a revamped Music app, one that Apple touts as being "beautiful" and, of course, easier to use than the previous version without sacrificing functionality. The new Music app design is complemented by several new features that round out the user experience, including “streamlined” use of iTunes Radio, making it easier to go back to favorite stations and to choose from existing curated Featured offerings.

Apple Watch battery doubled with this odd accessory

Apple Watch battery doubled with this odd accessory

The folks behind "wipowerband" suggest that all you need to to to get twice the battery life from the Apple Watch is wear their band. This band makes the Apple Watch setup twice as thick - at least - and adds a layer of plastic to your otherwise mostly metal setup. This accessory works with any version of the Apple Watch as it comes in more than one shape and size - as long as you make sure you get the right one. Don't expect this band to be around the wrists of too many Apple Watch Edition buyers, that's for certain.
