[New App] Chris Lacy's Link Bubble Makes Browsing The Web On A Mobile Device Suck A Lot Less (Hands-On)

We're lucky to have capable mobile browsers on Android these days, but the experience of poking around on the web is still flawed in a number of ways. You're often stuck bouncing between two or three redirects because of apps, mobile sites, and link shorteners. Then there's the fundamentally modal experience of only having one thing up on the screen at a time. The result is lots of wasted seconds waiting for links to actually resolve at the final destination. Link Bubble from Chris Lacy changes that by loading links in the background with an awesome floating browser. This app has finally launched, and here's what you can expect.

Motorola Camera Users Can Now Take Photos Using Volume Keys Following The Latest App Update

Motorola has a reputation of late for making relatively few changes to the stock Android experience, but taking photos is one of the areas where the company has applied some of its own tender loving care. The app, which can activate with just a flick of the wrist, encourages users to take pictures by touching anywhere on the screen. Now those who would prefer a more tactile approach have that option as well. With version 3.2, users can take pictures using a smartphone's volume keys instead.

What's new:

  • Capture photos using phone or headset volume key
  • Updated application will be compatible with Android™ 4.4.2, KitKat®
  • Bug Fixes

Not only that, Motorola has also extended this functionality to headsets with volume controls.

Twitter Adds 'Fave People' Feed To Beta App After Testing In The Alpha

Is there someone on Twitter you really like? Why not add them to your favorites then? There's a new feed in the Twitter beta, which appeared in the alpha just a few days ago. Just to the right of the main timeline is a new column with just the tweets from your faves.

The ability to filter accounts is not new, but the dedicated Fave People feed is. This is essentially a more straightforward version of lists. You just mark people as favorites, and they show up in the Fave People timeline. Though, it's odd they're calling it Fave People.

[New App] MarkAsRead For Gmail - Wait For It - Sticks A Mark As Read Button In Your Gmail Notifications

MarkAsRead for Gmail is a quintessential Android app. It does just one thing, and before you go hunting for an app description to figure it out, try giving its name another read. That's right, MarkAsRead for Gmail... lets you mark Gmail messages as read straight from the notification. In between the usual archive and reply buttons that Google provides out of the box, this app sneaks in that ever-so-useful (mark as) read option.

MarkAsRead for Gmail does its job by hijacking the Gmail notification, dismissing it, and creating a lookalike with the button to mark an email as read added.

Motorola Updates Assist With Better Control Of Meeting Detection

Assist is one of the core apps that Motorola has dropped into the Play Store, which means it can be updated as needed. It's gotten a few tweaks already, and today another update is rolling out. This time it should make the meeting mode more useful for users with more than one calendar.

unnamed new meeting

The meeting mode in Assist will automatically silence the phone and auto-reply to messages (both optional) when you are in a meeting. This is automatic and based on your calendar appointments. With the new update, you can specify which calendar will trigger meeting mode. For example, you can keep your significant other's calendar on your device, but have only your calendar trigger Assist.

YouTube For Google TV Rises From The Dead, Actually Receives An Update

Last month YouTube for Google TV vanished from the Play Store like a vampire slain by Lincoln himself, quietly fading from public view, seen only by those who had previously downloaded it and already knew of its existence. But like the immortal being that it is, YouTube has risen back from the dead. Not only that, it's stronger, having now received a relatively minor update to version 1.7.5.

Qualcomm Toq Gains Augmented SmartWatch Pro Support, Its First Important Win Since The SDK's Release

Last month Qualcomm released the SDK for its Toq smartwatch, inviting developers to create much needed apps for the device. Unsurprisingly, software hasn't exactly flooded in. Nevertheless, the Toq has just scored its largest win yet - the latest Augmented SmartWatch Pro update adds support for Qualcomm's wristwatch.

Primary features center around real-time alerts. Here are some fuzzy screens showing a Fitbit card and a weather alert.

The app also supports up to three Tasker tasks, with opening the card serving as the trigger.

However, the SDK limits how much Augmented SmartWatch Pro can do. It does not allow third-party developers to modify watchfaces, for example.
