Twitter Launches Periscope, A Live-Streaming App That It Bought For Around $100 Million—But The Android Version Will Have To Wait

Periscope was born in February of 2014, and before launching a product, it attracted the attention of a number of investors. Then Twitter bought it for something resembling $100 million. The deal closed early this year, and now the two are ready to introduce Periscope to the public.

Amazon Cloud Drive Now Provides Unlimited Storage Space For $59.99 A Year, Limitless Photos For $11.99

Amazon doesn't believe in limits, not anymore—not when it comes to storage space. The company has stripped Cloud Drive of its storage limitations. Now you can use the service to store as many files as you want for $59.99 a year.

To put this into perspective, Dropbox Pro charges $9.99 a month (or $99.99 a year) for 1TB of storage. To go unlimited, you need a business account. Google Drive is willing to go up to 30TB for general consumers, but it will cost you $299.99 a month.

Shortcuts For Waze Makes It Easier To Search Or Navigate From Your Homescreen

Even though many of Waze's features for traffic and incident reporting have been implemented in Google Maps over the past months, the standalone app remains available for those who prefer it and have grown used to it. However, while Google Maps integrates with Google Now and has handy homescreen shortcuts, Waze still lacks an easy way to launch the app directly into a search or navigation.

WhatsApp Could Soon Back Up And Restore Your Chat History And Media To Google Drive

If there's one thing I learned from upgrading several family members' Android devices over the past week, it's that people are really attached to their WhatsApp history. While my smartphone days kicked off in 2007 with switching to a new review unit every couple of weeks (followed by flashing a new ROM at least once a week in 2011-2012) and learning to let go of everything I couldn't bother to move around, most users aren't accustomed to losing their data. They want their new device to have exactly what their old one had: their contacts, chat history, photos, music, and so on.

Facebook Turns Messenger Into A Platform, Because Placing Apps Inside Of Apps Means More Apps For You

Facebook desperately wants to make itself an indispensable part of your mobile life. Selling phones didn't work, nor did replacing your homescreen. The company has had its share of misses, but Messenger has been an unambiguous win. The client has been adopted by hundreds of millions of users.

At this year's F8 (Facebook's annual developers' conference), the company fleshed out ways in which it intends to turn Messenger into a platform of its own.

Drupe Gives Boring Phone Contacts A Contextual Gesture-Based Makeover

Drupe would like you to think that contacts on Android, and on mobile in general, are broken. They're not - phone makers and developers have been doing this for a while, after all - but that doesn't mean that they can't be improved upon. Drupe is a "floating" app that puts contacts, and the means to do all sorts of interesting things with them, in a unique overlay accessible from any other app.

TiVo Android App Gets Complete Redesign And OnePass In Version 3.0

You don't have to know what DVR is to recognize the name TiVo, the company that became synonymous with the word. The company's products have allowed users to return to previous shows and watch them on their own schedule since long before Netflix and Hulu came around to help people cut the cord.

The TiVo Android app has grown a little dated over the years, but the company has invested some time rebuilding the software from the ground up.
