Nook 4.7 adds quote sharing, voice search, and several other improvements

I love reading — my house is filled with books that I obsessively collect. In the grand scheme of eBooks, I think that Amazon Kindle has won the battle, but Barnes & Noble still holds on. Frankly, I cheer for Nook mostly because most of my digital library is there from my Nook Color/Nook Tablet days. All of that aside, the Android app has received an update to v4.7 after close to eight months of silence.

WhatsApp lets you pick and send multiple contact details

You ask your friend to send you the contact details of the best photographers she knows for an event you're planning. Or your parents ask you for the number of a couple of good doctors they might call for a consult. These are just two of many circumstances where you might need to share the contact details of several people at the same time.

Previously, WhatsApp only allowed you to attach one contact at a time in a chat, forcing you to repeat your taps several times just to be able to send several persons' phone numbers and/or email addresses to your friends or family.

tinyCam Monitor gets updated to version 8.0 with Android O support and MP4 cloud recording


If you own a home security camera, chances are you've already heard of tinyCam Monitor. It's one of the most full-featured surveillance apps on the Play Store, and pairing it with any average security camera will get you virtually all the functionality of something more professional like the Dropcam for a fraction of the price.

The developer behind tinyCam continues to work incessantly to improve the app, and has just announced an update to version 8.0 (just 6 months after 7.0 was released, actually). Most notable among the new changes are support for Android O (that was fast) and MP4 cloud recording, which allows users to automatically sync their security footage to an online backup service like OneDrive or Dropbox.

Cortana 2.6 lets you ask questions from the lockscreen, officially lands in Australia

Earlier in March, Cortana got updated on Android to version 2.5 with one important feature: optional lockscreen integration. This allowed users to swipe from their lockscreen to reveal their personal feed including calendar appointments, news, and contextual information they might need. However, it didn't include the ability to interact with Cortana or ask it questions.

With today's update to v2.6, that is now possible. You can ask Cortana questions, set reminders, and more without unlocking your device first. It's more about convenience and less about security I presume. There are also improvements to the way the Cortana home feed is displayed on Android, easier ways to set reminders and lists without using voice, and a few other enhancements.
