tinyCam Monitor Pro v6.0 Introduces A New Icon, More Material Design, And Support For 24/7 Background Video Recording

tinyCam Monitor lets you view what's going on in front of your network or IP camera, cast the footage to a Chromecast, or keep tabs from an Android TV. It even supports Android Wear. Needless to say, the app does a thorough job of letting you use your Android device to keep an eye on things.

[Die Holo Die] WhatsApp 2.12.87 Marches Forward With Material Design: New Calling Interface, Lighter Default Wallpaper, More

No sooner do we think we've spent a few good weeks without any major WhatsApp news than a series of updates to the app start hitting us left and right. Just after the last batch of Material Design changes went live for everyone on the Play Store yesterday, we got a new "beta" of the app on the service's website (also available on APK Mirror).

Version 2.12.87 fixes some of the last remnants of Holo in WhatsApp, materializing the calling interface, changing the default wallpaper to a nicer one, cleaning up the search bar UI, and removing those pesky Gingerbread icons that were forgotten under the More menu in a chat's overflow options.
