Well Periscope, looks like you got beaten to the punch with this one. Your direct competitor, Meerkat, has announced its closed beta, released it, and now made the app stable enough for a 1.0 release, all without the backing of a huge company like Twitter and while you're still twiddling your thumbs saying that your Android app can wait. How 'bout that?

And it's not like Meerkat has rushed its beta or been lazy with its development.

Swype Keyboard v1.9 Adds Times And Dollar Amounts To Prediction Bar, Learns To Complete Short Phrases, And More

Swype, at its core, helps us be lazy. Want to type? Don't bother lifting up your thumb. Don't know how to spell? Just get close. Sure, these are only the byproducts of creating an input method that takes the pain out of using touchscreens, but the end result is the same. And things are only getting easier.

The latest update reduces the need to hold down keys with numbers as secondary characters or switch back and forth between alphabetical and numerical keyboards.

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that lets you remotely connect to any Windows computer has been available for a while on Android, but its design was outdated and its features were slightly limited.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).
