Vine Gets Higher-Quality 720p Video Capability, Coming To Android "Soon"

Vine is... OK, let's be clear here: Vine is kind of useless. There's literally nothing you can do with Vine that you can't already do with YouTube, unless you count an arbitrary 6.5-second time limit. That being said, there's no reason that Twitter can't improve its property, and it has done just that by boosting the video quality. Newly-created Vines from iOS are now defaulting to 720x720 pixels. Look down there: you can see all the retriever's little golden hairs.

Tilt Allows Your Group To Easily Collect Money For Crowdfunding Goals

So your church group decides to pay for a new well somewhere that needs it. You'll have to collect $20 from each person, then bundle it all up and make sure no one's welching. That's a considerable amount of work for a big group, not to mention a lot of awkward conversations - you can only hear "I left my wallet at home" so many times before you snap, earning a scornful look from the deacon and a thrashing from your grandma after Sunday pot roast.

Facebook Publishes A Handful Of Android Apps For Its New Messenger Platform

Facebook's internal instant messenger isn't so internal now: it's a stand-alone app platform that will operate in conjunction with the social network, and developers of every flavor can integrate their apps with Messenger. Naturally the first apps to take advantage of this come from Facebook itself: new apps include Selfied, Shout, Sound Clips, and Strobe, and the older Stickered app has been updated, all with the "for Messenger" label.

They're simple little tools or toys that add a bit of fun to Messenger.

VLC For Android 1.2 Adds Audio Playlists And Better Android TV Support, Plus A Few Bug Fixes

The popular Video LAN Client may finally have a stable release for Android, but that doesn't mean it can't be improved. The 1.2 update adds support for audio playlists, which was apparently missing from the previous releases. Unfortunately due to the limitations of M3U files (the default playlist type for the desktop version of VLC) it's tricky to simply copy your playlists from your computer to your phone. You'll probably need to set them up manually in the app, as below.

Expensify Gets A New Tab Bar, Launcher Button, And Other Design Changes In Update To Version 5.0

Nearly two years after Expensify's last major version number change, the expenses-tracking app has hit 5.0. Like any x.0 release worth its weight, users are treated to a substantial visual overhaul. And don't worry, the company's covering it.

Expensify's former home screen is gone. Developers have crammed the same content into a new tab bar and a launcher button at the bottom of the app. It still looks more iOS than Android, but folks who prefer things at this end of the phone will be happy not to have to reach up as often anymore.

Slack Acknowledges User Profile Database Breach, Launches Two-Factor Authentication And 'Password Kill-Switch'
