Gmail confidential mode on mobile: How – and why – you should use it

Google announced today that Gmail's confidential mode has come to mobile devices. The feature launched on desktop earlier this year, and it allows senders to restrict things like forwarding, copying, and downloading the emails they send.

Secret Apple meeting tipped to push app subscription model to developers

Aside from hardware sales, apps are a major source of revenue for Apple. Though official Apple apps make up a tiny, tiny fraction of all of the available apps on iOS, the company still gets a percentage of every app sale through the platform.

Android Pie gestures are changing more than just navigation

Google has just christened Android 9 as Android Pie and its rather plain-sounding name mirrors this release’ identity. The good things are all packed inside with AI filling while the crust almost feels like just for show. It’s biggest visual change and probably its most controversial is the new navigation system that favors a pill and a non-permanent back button over the navigation panel that has become Android’s identity for over a decade now. And yet that seemingly superficial change could actually be the beginning of an even bigger identity shift that’s happening in Android.
