Firefox For Android Gains Chromecast Support, Starting With Nightly Builds

Earlier this summer word got out that Mozilla was working on a media streaming stick of its own that's intended to be a more open option than Google's Chromecast.

Klinker Apps Releases Blur, A Launcher Replacement That Turns Apps Into Google Now-Style Homescreen Pages

Developer Klinker Apps, the folks behind the Talon Twitter client and the EvolveSMS messaging app, have just released Blur, a free launcher replacement that takes the approach introduced by the Google Now Launcher and opens it up to other apps. With Blur, any app that adds on support for the launcher can have its own dedicated page that rests right on a person's homescreen. In practice, this means users can swipe to the left to access their Twitter feed, text messages, a basic calculator, or a dedicated Google Now page that the Klinker brothers MacGyvered to imitate the GNL.

Snapshot Automatically Launches The Camera When You Wake The Phone in Landscape Mode

A lot of phones have a method of opening the camera quickly when the device is asleep, but not all of them are reliable or all that easy. Snapshot aims to make camera access quicker by starting it up as soon as the phone wakes up, provided the device is in landscape orientation (i.e. the way you're supposed to be taking pictures).

'Quick Circle Apps' Gives LG G3 Users More Options With The Quick Circle Case

LG would like to remind you that the G3's Quick Circle case is definitely not copying the S View case. I mean, look—no corners. As we all know circles are totally in right now, and you can get a bit more functionality out of the Quick Circle case for the G3 with Quick Circle Apps.
