Microsoft Remote Desktop App Updated With New UI, Multiple Sessions, And Overall Improvements

Microsoft's commitment to Android keeps on impressing us with new app releases, frequent improvements to its existing portfolio, and decent overall adoption of Google's design guidelines. Case in point, Remote Desktop. This handy app that lets you remotely connect to any Windows computer has been available for a while on Android, but its design was outdated and its features were slightly limited. Well that's no more.

Remote Desktop is finally getting the updated design and multiple account support that have been in testing through the app's Beta channel for a few months now. As you can see from the screenshots, the interface is more in line with Lollipop and although the nit-picky amongst us can point out a few missteps here and there, it's still a significant improvement over the old UI (pictured at the end of the post).

Google+ Collections Set To Launch Tomorrow, May 4th

Google is just about ready to introduce Collections to Google+ publicly, according to sources.

Evidently, Collections is expected to launch tomorrow, May 4th, in the morning (Pacific Time), with an announcement coming from the official Google+ page of ... Google+. After its announcement, the feature will activate for web and Android users on a rollout that's expected to last a day or so. There's no word yet on when Collections will come to iOS.

The new feature, which we got a sneak peek at recently (followed by pretty strong code-based clues of an impending launch), will allow users to curate "collections" of their content for others to share and follow.

The Enchanted Cave 2

[Weekend Poll] How Much Mobile Data Do You Use In A Month?

Welcome back to the weekend poll, and this weekend we're asking you about your data habits. Specifically, how much mobile data (as in, 2G/3G/LTE/4G - not Wi-Fi) do you typically use in a month? Given our wide geographic distribution of readers, it'll be interesting to see how this shapes up - I personally know very little about people's data usage outside the US.

For an easy way to answer this question, just go into your phone's settings menu and look at how much you've used in the last 30 days (Android 4.0+). Or, just estimate - we all do vary month to month in our usage, I know I used a big hunk of data last week while traveling (I always forget to download music before I leave).

Alarm.com App Update Adds Easier Light Switches, Better Thermostat Management, And Actionable Notifications

Alarm.com, despite its security-oriented URL, has become a thriving platform for home management hardware and software both defensive and benign. The latest update to the app, version 3.2, adds a handful of small but important features and adjustments that should make it much easier for users of compatible automated home hardware to get stuff done. The updated version appears to be rolling out in the Play Store with no delays, so no need to track down the APK.

The Indiana State Congress Uses A Collection Of Nexus 7s And CyanogenMod To Let Members Vote

Here's a mildly interesting story discovered by one member of the CyanogenMod Reddit board. Apparently the state congress of Indiana uses a custom setup to allow its state senators and representatives to submit votes. A Nexus 7 running the CyanogenMod custom ROM is permanently attached to each congressperson's desk, connected to the building's intranet system using a custom Ethernet adaptor (to avoid problems from an overcrowded Wi-Fi connection - there are 150 senators who vote at once), and hooked into SmartVote software from Propylon.
