NBC News App Gets A Makeover With Version 5, No Longer Looks Like Something Hatched From The Froyo Era

If you prefer to get your news hot and steaming from the NBC pipeline, I feel kind of bad for you. Not really because of NBC itself, but because the app was just so ugly. Thankfully NBC woke up and realized the app was basically reminiscent of a child's plaything and had the developer, Zumobi Apps, craft a new one. This one's much prettier. Here's a comparison to prove it:

1 2 3

Old.

1[4] 2[4] 3[4]

New.

See how much better that looks? The card-style UI is quite becoming on a news-based app. It delivers a lot of content at a glace without looking overly cluttered.

Dayframe Hits v2.0 With Chromecast Support, A Revamped UI, And More [Update: Video And More Info On Prime Upgrade]

Update: Cloud.TV has clarified that it will unlock the Prime features for anyone who bought the old Prime unlocker, but does not have it installed. You just need to get in touch to make that happen. That sounds reasonable.

Update 2: Dayframe Prime unlocker app is back too.

Update 3: Google has asked Dayframe to pull Chromecast support for the time being until the official Play services SDK is out. Apparently that should be soon. v2.0.2 is out sans Chromecast support.

Photo frames are one of the lamest gifts you can buy, but an app that turns your tablet into a photo frame?

Google Search Adds Knowledge Graph Info For Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics, Google Now Cards In Search App 3.2

You've got to give it to Google: the company has its finger on the pulse of the world's search habits. Take the upcoming Sochi Olympics - while Russia itself seems poised for an international embarrassment of epic proportions, Google has already tuned up its search engine with Sochi information for desktop and mobile searches. Most searches with "olympics" and an event will return a quick schedule and/or results card in the Knowledge Graph area.

PSA: Google Search v3.2 Also Fixed The Hotword Detection Broken By Chrome Beta

An update to Chrome beta a few weeks ago came with the bizarre side effect that hotword detection no longer worked in the Google search app or in the Google Now Launcher (GNL). The next version of Chrome beta didn't do anything to fix it, either. Well, Google Search to the rescue – yesterday's big search update seems to have fixed hotword detection.

Mozilla Shows Off Firefox Launcher For Android, Its Rebranded Version Of EverythingMe Launcher

Today Mozilla showed off something that seems like it's an amazing addition to its software portfolio: a Firefox Android homescreen launcher. That would be huge news, if it weren't for the fact that Mozilla invested in the promising launcher Everything.me (later rebranded EverythingMe) in November of 2012, eventually making its search-focused interface a core part of the Firefox mobile OS, which is just now getting off the ground. Now Mozilla and EverythingMe are showing off a tweaked version of that app, rebranded as Firefox Launcher for Android.

The preview is a single screenshot, and to be honest, it looks nearly identical to the current version of EverythingMe (with the obvious addition of a big Firefox shortcut).
