Kickstarter Launches Official Android App—Hopefully Future Updates Aren't Stretch Goals

Here's an idea. Tell me if I should get it crowdfunded. We'll create an Android app for Kickstarter. Wait, before you scoff, hear me out. This way you don't have to fiddle around with opening the site in a browser or opting to sit down at a laptop instead. As soon as you get the urge to throw your money at a project, you can do so.

[Update: Winners] We Have 50 Promo Codes For LocalCast To Give Away

 

Casting audio, video, pictures, and more from your smartphone or tablet to the TV is one of the easiest ways to get content from the little screen to the big screen, but it requires an app that supports the feature in the first place. For example, try using Adobe Reader or Google Docs to cast a PDF to the TV. You're out of luck.

Thankfully, enterprising developers like Stefan Pledl—the creator of LocalCast—have been able to whip up some really nice looking solutions that allow users to cast almost any consumable content to the big screen.

This contest is now over.

[Never Too Early For A Smile] Microsoft Garage's Mimicker Alarm Makes A Challenge Of Your Morning Wake-Up Routine

Wake up! Wakey wakey... It's time to rise and shine. Come on, wake up silly! I said wake up! Argh. It's like you're ignoring me on purpose. What's this ridiculous game we keep playing bruh? You ask me to do something for you every morning and I'm always up and at'em because you need me to. Then you're all about not even listening to me. And you have the nerve to hate me for actually doing my job! Ungrateful human. Oh wake up, please. Sigh. I hate this game.

I bet you don't do this to your other apps. They probably notify you and you're instantly all over them to see what they want.

Link Bubble Will Be Rebranded As Brave, A Friendlier Ad-Blocking Browser That Protects Your Privacy

The new owners of Link Bubble made it open source yesterday, but that's just the beginning of what Brave Software (led by former Mozilla CEO and JavaScript inventor Brendan Eich) has planned for the project it purchased from dev Chris Lacy. The company has started explaining its vision for Brave, and it's an ambitious one. Brave will redirect links to HTTPS, block tracking cookies, and (most importantly) strip out ads that invade your privacy. Unlike other ad-blockers, Brave will be able to insert friendlier ads that will help support publishers.

Skype Adds Call Scheduling And Better Office Document Handling

A few days ago, the Outlook team announced a new option to schedule Skype calls within the app's calendar. At the time, the feature wasn't live but the app has just been updated to add it. Call scheduling can be triggered from Outlook or, more appropriately, from Skype and this is what this latest update to the latter is about.

Now when you're viewing a certain contact, you can tap the overflow menu and see a new Schedule a call option. Tap it and you're immediately taken to Outlook to add the new appointment to your calendar and block your schedule for the corresponding time.

[Update: Live] Outlook Calendar Will Soon Add Skype Call Scheduling And Improve Views And Navigation

Microsoft's Outlook has seen vast improvements over the past year or so. The app transformed from a Metro-inspired mess to a responsive and beautiful app with lots of Material touches. It recently even made the jump to add bottom quick access buttons, like Gmail used to have. And now the Outlook team is letting us know that the Calendar section of the app is getting cool new additions.

Link Bubble's Code Is Now Open Source And Visible On GitHub

Link Bubble is the Facebook Chat Heads of browsers, a way to open links and save them for later without having to hop around between apps. Over the summer, developer Chris Lacy sold the app off. Under new management, the app became available for free within a month.

New features and fixes have made their way to the app in the months since, but now we see another sizable shift for the app.

The CBS Sports App Gets Updated To Stream The AFC Championship Game And The Super Bowl, But Only On Tablets

If you're a good little brow-beaten NFL fan like me, then watching all of the playoff games is a penance. Each of the major networks gets its own game every weekend, and they're all desperately trying to avoid the moment when they're contractually obligated to tell you about the games on the other channels. And in the case of CBS, they mention the fact that they have both the Super Bowl and the Grammy's every twenty seconds, because apparently they think the same people who will watch a bloated, drawn-out spectacle full of egos and corporate sponsorship will also watch a music awards show.

HERE Android Beta Update Tours You Around The City With 'Get Your Guide', Lays Foundation For Future Third-Party Content

Not too long ago, we were impressed if a GPS application successfully got us from point A to point B without leading us off a bridge or taking us a dozen miles away from a more direct route. But then some apps started to nail it. Google Maps was good enough to sell Android phones on its own. Alternatives like HERE maps have proved themselves as competent.
