While social networks like Facebook and Twitter have become the home of bite-sized news, whether fake or otherwise, the Internet has one other venue when it comes to actually discussing such things. Reddit is practically the modern-day, and more complicated version of the BBS of yesteryears but, somewhat ironically, it has been a bit slow on embracing our smartphone overlords. To rectify that situation, Reddit has rolled out a huge update for its mobile apps that could make users actually want to use the app rather than stick with the mobile browser form.

Cuphead iOS port a scam: Why was it allowed in the first place?

Cuphead is unquestionably one of the year's most popular games, so it should be little surprise that some unsavory folks are looking to take advantage of that popularity. Recently, an app claiming to be an iOS port of Cuphead went live on the App Store. At first glance, it appears to be a legitimate port, with a developer that shares the name with the studio behind Cuphead, along with screenshots and a description that make it seem like the real deal.

Earlier this week, Apple announced its intention to acquire Shazam. As some of you already know, Shazam is an app that allows you to identify songs you hear on the radio and in commercials by having it listen to the content in question. It seems like a pretty safe bet that we'll see Apple integrate Shazam into Siri and Apple Music, but today, Deezer is beating it to the punch.

weMessage is an iMessage for Android with too many catches

weMessage is an iMessage for Android with too many catches

One of the most requested Apple services on Android has always been iMessage. Naturally, Apple is not too keen on yielding even an inch to its rival. Sure, it has conceded Apple Music, but that was more to bolster its iTunes business. iMessage is a totally different beast and is unlikely to have an official Android app. Enter weMessage, the latest attempt at a third-party solution, one that is innocent and pure yet still unlikely to last that long.

Twitter Threads make tweet storms an official feature

Twitter Threads make tweet storms an official feature

For as long as Twitter has existed, users have been circumventing its 140 character limit (which, as of last month, is now 280).
