Gmail Hangouts Updated With Tab That Puts Online Contacts At The Top, Lets Users Pin Favorites

Google is continuing to shine a brighter light on Hangouts users who are currently online. A few months ago the company brought back the green dot that used to mark online contacts in the days of Google Talk (which was replaced with a subtle green line in Hangouts). Going forward, the messenger in the web version of Gmail will contain a new tab that puts online contacts at the top. It's still possible to message friends who are offline, they're just tucked at the bottom where they're out of the way.

TeamViewer is a go-to tool for users who, well, remote access into things enough to have a go-to tool.

Pressy Review: I Had No Clue Something Could Suck This Badly

Four members of the Android Police team, myself included, backed Pressy on Kickstarter. Out of the four of us, roughly zero percent likes or uses it. In fact, in a recent poll conducted in the Android Police team chat, 100% of those who backed this project regret doing so.

Swing Copters Update Makes The Game Easier, Saving Billions In Potential Property Damage

In a game in which getting a single point is a brain-numbing task of Sisyphean repetition, every little bit helps. So it is with Swing Copters, the second game from the infamous developer of Flappy Bird. The version 1.1 update to the Android release includes "tuning gameplay," reportedly making the back-and-forth motion much easier to predict, and thus lowering the challenge. Well, that's what a lot of players are saying, anyway.
