Code Found In YouTube's Most Recent App Update All But Confirms Pay-To-View Channels Are Coming

Yesterday, the Wall Street Journal suggested that Google is in talks with record labels to start its own Spotify-like music streaming service. In the same article, the newsgroup also reported that El Goog is looking to do something similar with YouTube, and launch pay-to-view channels, though no specific details past that were given. Now, some code found in the most recent YouTube app update basically confirms the service is on its way:

<string name="paid_channel_subscribe_message">You can only subscribe to this paid channel on your computer.</string>

<string name="paid_channel_unsubscribe_message">You can only unsubscribe from this paid channel on your computer.</string>

And there it is, in just a few simple words: "You can only subscribe/unsubscribe from this paid channel on your computer." While it's still very unclear exactly what this means, it does confirm that the previous rumors are legit.

[New App] Skype Wifi Grants Easy Access To 1 Million WiFi Hotspots, Payable With Skype Credit

Don't let the title fool you: this app isn't a WiFi-exclusive version of Skype. That would be silly. Instead, it's an easy access app for Skype's network of partnered WiFi access points, which the company claims is more than a million strong in various airports, cafes, and train stations. There's nothing stopping you from using them normally (or using the standard Skype VOIP app), but Skype WiFi will quickly connect and authenticate your Android-powered device.

Falcon Pro Hits 100K User Token Limit - Another Twitter Client Bites The Dust

In case you hadn't heard, back in August of last year Twitter changed the rules for their API, limiting developers to 100,000 individual user tokens for outside apps (or 200% of then-totals, if the app already had more than 100,000 users). To say the change was controversial would be an understatement. Falcon Pro, a favorite among Android Twitter users, has hit the limit. New users cannot log into Twitter via Falcon Pro.

SuperSU Updated To Finally Support Multiple Users

Back when Google unveiled multi-user support with Android 4.2, one of the first question on many users' minds was how will root access be handled on secondary user accounts? It was a short answer, actually: it wouldn't. Superuser managers like SuperSU simply wouldn't run on anything aside from the primary user.

However, Android developer Chainfire – the mastermind behind SuperSU – knew that it could be done. It's been clear that he has kept this venture on the forefront of his mind, and he's finally broken the barrier.

[New App] Newscover Is An Intelligent And Beautiful News Aggregator With A Quirky Ad Campaign

News aggregators. We all use (or have used) them, and there is no shortage of selections in the Play Store. Some are designed to be pretty. Some are fully customizable. Some do the customization for you. Then there's newscover, an app that essentially wants to do all of the above.

In short, newscover is a very nice looking, newspaper-esque aggregator that uses what you read to personalize your feed. The developer claims it starts "getting to know you" only five seconds after the app is opened.
