Square Order allows you to order food from restaurants, but it's a bit more than that - it's designed to be used even while you're inside the restaurant, because the app actually notifies you as soon as your order is ready, and payment and tip are integrated as well.

As one of the world's largest advocates for web access in emerging markets, Facebook obviously cares very much just how well its own platform works on mobile devices in those markets.

Pushbullet's EvolveSMS Integration Is Live, And It's Joined By Sliding Messaging Support As Well

Pushbullet is one of those apps that gets continuously updated over time, and while many releases don't look particularly mind-blowing on the outside, they subtly introduce rather impressive functionality. A week ago we reported on upcoming integration with EvolveSMS that would allow users to receive, view, and reply to text messages from the comfort of their desktop computers.

AccuWeather 3.3 Update Introduces MinuteCast And Local Forecast Summary

 

AccuWeather has been my go-to weather app for a long time now. I still have like eight others installed (don't judge me), but I always find AccuWeather to be the most...accurate. Today, the app is getting a kickass new update that brings up to the minute forecasts. It's called – get this – MinuteCast, and it basically provids minute-by-minute forecasts for a two hour window.

[New App] Intel Releases Pocket Avatars, A Video Chat App With Face Tracking Technology That No One Will Use

Intel might have finally cracked the video messaging code. See, you'd probably send more video messages to people if you looked like a giant anthropomorphized puffer fish.
