Minuum-Thumb

Minuum shrinks all the letters of a keyboard down into a single row of text. This is potentially convenient for smartphones, but the learning curve alone is enough to push some users back to alternative options. Yet for smaller devices where a full-size keyboard is downright unwieldy, Minuum is uniquely situated to step in and scratch that itch. The app has now come to Google Glass, but unfortunately, this looks like one of those itches you don't want to scratch in public.

Plex is one of the best ways to stream local media to your mobile devices and the Chromecast, and today the Android app is getting a cool improvement. Version 3.3 adds support for Plex's background photo upload feature so your pics will always be backed up. However, it's a premium user feature for now.

The Sonos Android app has been long overdue for an update, previously sporting a UI that looked out of date four flavors of Android ago. When version 5 hit beta, it brought about a much needed refresh, introducing a UI that looks just fine on KitKat devices. Now the app has exited beta and is ready for anyone with a Sonos sound system to download and fire up.

I have a confession to make: I'm a terrible speller. I know what you're thinking, "how can someone who writes for a living be bad at spelling?" Honestly, if it wasn't for spellcheck, I probably wouldn't have this job right now. So, thanks for spellcheck, um, spellcheck inventor!

Considering how many times a day Chrome has to correct stupid spelling mistakes (like mine), I think Google realized an intervention was due.

Let's speak some truth here right out of the gate: weather apps are a dime a dozen in the Play Store. With the volume of apps designed to tell users the weather, it's really difficult to put out something that stands out in the crowd. Fortunately for LevelUp Studio, it has quite a bit of experience in that field thanks to its incredibly popular app Beautiful Widgets. If you're into informative, yet minimal apps, then the company's newest offering, Bright Weather, should be right up your alley.

Square wants to do more than swipe cards using your phone's headphone jack, but it's giving up on one of its other ideas. Square Wallet has been discontinued, and the app has been pulled from Google Play. The company will instead focus on Square Order, a way to place orders at local businesses, then pick them up.

Sometimes you just don't want to hear everything people on your Twitter timeline are saying, especially if you follow a lot of accounts. Also, some people just get annoying. This is why third-party Twitter clients have long included muting. Now Twitter itself is embracing the idea with official support coming to its apps and website.

For some reason, plenty of us just hate carrying credit cards around, and we cannot wait for the day when we're free from this burden. I can see our ancestors now, wondering what the fuss is all about. Not too long ago, you balanced your checkbook and you liked it. Before that, there wasn't a way to avoid walking around with a wallet stuffed with cash and a pocket loaded with coins.

There's a new app from Microsoft on Android. Are you excited? Well, only a select few of you will remain so. The new arrival is Dynamics CRM for tablets, which joins the previously released CRM for phones. Look Microsoft, it's not that we don't appreciate the attention you're paying to Android, but why is this a separate app?

Dynamics CRM for tablets does the same thing the phone counterpart does.
