[No Food Jokes] New Instagram UI Rolling Out For Some Users

If you're a regular user of Instagram, you may soon notice some nice changes to its look. The photo sharing service appears to be quietly rolling out a tweaked UI to some users, likely via a server-side switch. There hasn't been any official announcement from the company yet, but on the surface it looks like a lot of the blue has been toned down in favor of black, and there are new icons for the photo controls.

Normally this would be the point where people would put in a cliché joke about people taking pictures of their food, but I'm going to refrain because I actually love Instagram.

Google Rolls Out Small Tweaks To Google+ App (v7.7) And Web Interface

A blog post... like this one. At any rate, the Google+ app has been updated to v7.7 and the web got a feature update a few days ago.

Firefox 46 Goes Stable, Drops Support For Android Honeycomb

Another Firefox update is making its way out to devices. Unless they're running Honeycomb, that is. This version of Mozilla's open source browser does not work on tablets running Android 3.0 - 3.2.

Considering less than 0.1% of Android users were on Honeycomb two years ago, only four or five people will be saddened by this news.

Everyone else will see popular websites such as Facebook and YouTube show up in the Top Sites panel at first launch. Notifications about tabs opened in the background now list URLs. Firefox 46 will also request permissions as needed instead of when first installed, thanks to Android 6.0.

Radon Uses Google's Nearby API To Easily Share Links To Other Devices

Google's Nearby API is one of the coolest things developers aren't using. I mean, they are, but not as often as I had hoped. Radon is a new sharing app based on Nearby, and it's pretty cool. Just share something to Radon, and it will search for target devices in close proximity with WiFi, Bluetooth, and ultrasonic pulses.

Now That Twitter Has Murdered Fenix, Finch Is A Decent (And Free) Alternative Third-Party Client For Android

So, Twitter. Hi. It's been a while. Are you people still completely screwing both the developers and the users that helped to make your platform a household name? Yeah? I kind of thought you'd get your heads out of your asses at this point, but I guess not. Since your stupid, stupid, stupid policies have killed yet another quality Twitter app for Android, ostensibly so you can continue to push your entirely mediocre first-party solution, it's time for us to look for another one.

Fenix Pulled From Play Store After Hitting Twitter's Dumb Token Limit

Twitter instituted the API token limit way back in 2012. Since then, a number of high-profile apps have maxed out at 100,000 users and been retired. The latest app to become a victim of its own success is Fenix. It ran out of tokens yesterday and now it's gone from the Play Store. It took almost exactly two years.

Twitter Now Lets You Report Multiple Abusive Tweets At Once

Twitter is one of the largest social networks out there. Sadly, where you have that much free exchange of dialogue, you also end up with a bunch of people saying and doing some pretty mean and offensive things.

Since bullying, mocking, and other forms of harassment don't always fit in 140 characters, Twitter is now giving users the ability to attach multiple tweets to a single report.
