While the mobile app did closely mirror the PlayStation's interface, it didn't fit in well with the rest of Android (or iOS). An update for the PlayStation app is now available, with a brand new UI.

Instagram Stories now supports importing media more than 24 hours old

Instagram has always allowed you to add previously-taken pictures and videos to your Story, but the app imposed one limitation - the media had to be less than 24 hours old.

'Toolbox for Google Play Store,' our web browser extension, adds Firefox on Android support and more with v2.0

Back in December, we released a Chrome extension called 'Toolbox for Google Play Store.'

A few months later, we released it for Opera, and later Firefox.
