Swappa is an online marketplace where you can buy and sell gently used smartphones, tablets, and smart watches. It sort of makes sense it would have an app, but they only just now got around to it. It doesn't really do a whole lot right now, though.
The Swappa app is really just a price checker in this initial release. When you open it, the app identifies your phone and gives you pricing history, as well as what it's going for now. Read More
As with most of Autodesk's apps, the newly released Fusion 360 has somewhat limited appeal. However, anyone who does have use for it will be crazy-excited, and they know who they are. Fusion 360 is the company's collaborative 3D design tool with a more basic feature set and affordable price (free for non-commercial use). The app is not a full-fledged design tool, but it allows remote review of designs.
Inputting+ quietly keeps tabs on all the text you write across various apps for safekeeping while bundling an undo and redo function in case you have accidentally made a change that you didn't mean to. And if you want to find and replace something, Inputting+ has your back there too. All of this is easily accessible from a small bubble (which can be turned off, made transparent, and made bigger/smaller) that floats on your screen while typing. Read More
Medium is your one-stop shop for blog posts about... things. Sometimes those are things you want to read about, and sometimes not, but it's a popular site for a wide variety of content. The Android app has been in beta for a few weeks, but today it's ready for public consumption.
Intel has a lot of things going on these days, including a push for small form factor computers that run Intel hardware. The NUC (Next Unit of Computing) platform has been popular, and now there's the Compute Stick, which has been a little less popular. If you have either, you can now download the Intel Remote Keyboard app and control the system from your phone or tablet.
Samsung has been releasing more apps lately and the newest one is for the mobile gamers. Game Recorder+ lets you record gameplay videos on several Samsung devices, with internal audio supported on the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge. The early reviews aren't great, though.
Vessel has a beta Android app now. You're probably wondering what Vessel is, though. Imagine YouTube with less content, but the content shows up a few days early. Oh, and you have to pay for it. Interested? I didn't think so, but the app exists nonetheless.
The developers that brought us Pushbullet have announced a brand new app. Portal is designed to do one thing and one thing only: move files between your computer and your Android device. While this is possible with Pushbullet, it isn't a strong point and requires sending those files to their servers and back. Read More
The latest app from doubleTwist lets you take advantage of all that online storage you're (maybe) sitting on. CloudPlayer does what the name suggests—it plays music from your cloud storage. Just upload your tracks and plug in CloudPlayer.
The app supports Dropbox, OneDrive, and Google Drive. You would, of course, be able to simply navigate to the file locations of any song in one of the official clients for these services and play it, but CloudPlayer operates like a traditional music player. Read More
So you were at a party or on a trip, and you want to share the photos of the event with everyone else who was there. Better upload them, make an album, send links, and so on. Right? Wrong! Or so says Facebook. The new Moments app lets you create synced albums that are shared only with the people you choose so they can view and save the photos. Read More
