Telegram 3.8 Introduces Redesigned Chat Screens And Bot API 2.0

Telegram has just received a huge update to version 3.8 with plenty of goodies for all its loyal users to enjoy. There's a pretty important new version of the Bots API, but before we get to that, the app also got redesigned chat screens and a couple of small functional changes too.

I don't use Telegram enough to be able to tell the difference between these new chat screens (in the image above this post) and the old ones, but the most apparent change to me is that the bubble's anchor is at the bottom now as opposed to slightly higher.

Share Your Dropbox Files Directly In Facebook Messenger

Facebook's Developer Conference is scheduled to start today so this is probably one of many bits of Messenger and Facebook news you'll read in the next 48 hours. Dropbox just announced that it now integrates in Messenger to allow you to share any media files or documents from your cloud to friends and group chats.

If you already have the Dropbox app installed on your phone, you'll see it as a source for sharing under Messenger's "More" menu just like in the first screenshot above. You can then browse your Dropbox files, pick the one to share, and send it. If it's an image, gif, or video, it will be immediately embedded and previewed inside the conversation.

LiveSoccer 3.0 Launches In Time For Euro 2016 With A Contest To Win Great Prizes

For those of us who watch real football, the one played with feet and no helmets (what you Yanks call soccer), a well-known app has received an update. LiveSoccer, one of the most popular football apps in the Play Store, has launched version 3.0, bringing a host of new features, including user and club profiles, 'Predict Match results,' and contests, points, and leaderboards. Sadly the app is still holo, though.

The team profiles show useful information, such as season statistics, a calendar for upcoming matches, the latest scores, a full squad list, and any details, such as phone number or website.

Twitter Is Testing A More Material Version Of Its App With Tabs And A FAB

The Twitter app has gone through many, many incarnations. Not only have there been plenty of official redesigns, Twitter often tests UI tweaks using server-side switches. That's the case now as a new, more material interface appears to be rolling out to users (see above). It has tabs, a proper nav menu, and even a floating action button (FAB).

Ten cents. What can you buy at the store with ten cents? Nothing. You can't even buy a Tootsie Roll Pop for that price, those suckers cost at least a quarter now!

The game I'm talking about is Epic War Tower Defense 2 by developer AMT games.

Epic War TD 2 has been out for a little over a year now, so it's likely this sale is a just a way for the developer to drum up interest for a new title by getting naïve tech bloggers to write about the steep discount in an...

Google Announces Voice Access Beta—Control Your Phone Completely By Voice

It was almost a year ago that Google posted the session list for I/O 2015 with an interesting "voice access" talk. That was eventually removed from the schedule and we didn't hear anything about it in Android M. Now, Google has announced Voice Actions as a beta in the Play Store (Android 5.0 and higher). Once you join up, you can install the app and literally control your entire phone by voice. It's incredibly cool.

Sygic Makes Paid Dashcam And Head-Up Display Add-Ons Free To All Premium Users, Includes Speed Camera For Basic Users

Sygic is one of the most well known mapping software providers especially in car dashboards. And thanks to detailed TomTom maps, offline maps access, extensive POI databases, and some more features available in its app, it's also a viable option on your Android phone. The free tier only gets you this far though, it's the Premium option that enables turn-by-turn navigation, speed limit warnings, lane guidance, and more. However, even if you had paid for the Premium license, you still didn't have access to the Dashcam and Head-up Display features.

Those were paid add-ons (on top of your paid Premium license), but that changes today.
