Musixmatch Adds Spotify Connect, Streams All Your Playlists With Lyrics On Top

Musixmatch was known for the longest time as a lyrics application that found the words to a song you're listening to and displayed them in rhythm with the music. But Musixmatch has grown beyond that and over the past couple of years has become one of the most interesting music players on Android with local music playback, Chromecast support, and a nice Material Design interface. It is moving one step further now with the addition of Spotify.

If you have a premium Spotify account, you'll be able to use Connect to get all of your music inside Musixmatch. This includes access to all of your playlists and tracks just like you'd find them inside Spotify's app.

Fleksy Keyboard Partners With ZTE, Will Come Preinstalled On The Company's Devices

Partnerships between keyboard makers and smartphone manufacturers aren't new — we all remember when Samsung started using Swype's technology on its keyboard a few years ago. So it isn't a surprise to see Fleksy striking a deal with an OEM of its own, as a way to extend its reach and installation base and as a benefit to the manufacturer who won't have to waste time and resources trying to develop a fast and reliable input method.

The deal in question is with Chinese manufacturer ZTE who will start bundling Fleksy with its smartphones. This includes Fleksy's fast keyboard and correction engine as well as its recently added rich content (GIFs, stickers, and emojis) and customization features (keyboard photos, colors, and effects).

Evernote Kills Skitch For All Platforms (Except Mac) And Evernote For Pebble


Evernote has just decided to kill its sketching, drawing, and annotating application Skitch. The app hadn't been updated since March 2015, and even then it was a small bug fix release that didn't do much to improve the responsiveness, functionality, or speed of the application. Now Skitch is officially marked as done. Evernote will no longer update it as of today, and the app will be removed from the Play Store on January 22 although it will continue to work if you have it installed. The same fate is reserved for its Windows, Windows Touch, and iOS counterparts. However, the Mac application will remain (for some reason).

[Yodawg] Microsoft Apps Is A New Android App To Help You Find And Download Other Microsoft Apps

Microsoft makes a ton of apps for Android, to a point where we have trouble keeping up with all of them. It seems that the company shares that feeling and it decided that simply pointing you toward its page on the Play Store to find and download them wasn't that efficient. So it built Microsoft Apps... which just houses organized links to all of Microsoft's apps.

Yes. I know. It's not the brightest idea ever, especially since the app doesn't do anything beside provide a sentence of description, a rating, and a link to the Play Store. It looks good though, there's that.

Connections Is A Microsoft Garage Project That Consolidates Information About Your Contacts, Available Only In India

One of a smartphone's core functions is to contact your contacts, so you probably have a bunch of them. Some, maybe even most, folks would consider the default contacts app on their phone sufficient, but Microsoft is working on a piece of software for people who would say otherwise.

Behance Gets A Splash Of Material Design, Marshmallow Support, And A Job Board

Behance's website is a way for creative professionals (photographers, artists, designers) to showcase their work online in a neat and accessible portfolio that also brings them together with a community of similar folks. For an app that's focused on showcasing design, Behance was slacking, but not a lot. It looked good, but there were a few refinements and different approaches in Material Design that weren't yet implemented in it. Today, those little improvements have gone live in the latest version 3.0.

Don't expect the ground to shift below your feet when you open the app for the first time after the update.

Microsoft Translator 1.2 Adds Natural Conversations Including Android Wear Support For One Of The Two Participants

When Microsoft Translator was released a few months ago, I went through an extensive comparison between it and Google Translate and came out impressed by Microsoft's efforts, but not completely swayed. At the time, Translator had a major advantage in its Android Wear support (a gap that Google has since closed) but lacked many other features like offline functionality, camera view, and most importantly the live conversation mode. Well, Translator has now jumped that last hurdle and added natural conversation support in its app.

The mode works for a few select languages already: Chinese (Traditional and Simplified), English, French, German, Italian and Spanish, with more promised to be added in the future.
