Outlook Developers Decide Maybe It's Nice To Have Quick Access Buttons At The Bottom, Like Gmail Used To

When it comes time to design an interface, there is a serious question to ask—are you a top or a bottom? Me, I'm a bottom. I find buttons much easier to access when they're at the bottom of the screen. Reaching towards the top, to me, is simply awkward.

In the latest version of Outlook, the developers must feel the same.

Google's Santa Tracker Is Back For Another Year With A New Game And More Android Wear Goodies

Sometimes I wonder if Google has an official Department of Whimsy where things like the never-ending doodles, Android mascots, and Santa Tracker are studiously maintained (and the inbox still overflows from bitter Google Reader fans). If so, then the DoW's biggest yearly project has just begun with the timely update to the Google Santa Tracker app. The latest version is now available for Android phones, tablets, and Android TV devices, complete with all kinds of kid-friendly goodies.

TeamViewer 11 Is Out Of Beta And Live In The Play Store With Unattended Support, Clickable Web Links, And More

TeamViewer started beta testing a big update to its Android app (and other apps) recently, and now it's final. TeamViewer 11 is out of beta with a plethora of features that will make it less awful when someone on the other side of the country needs help with their phone. It'll still be kind of awful, but you won't want to murder the other party (probably).

Facebook's 7-Second Profile Videos Are Gradually Surfacing On Android

Facebook announced profile videos a couple months back, showing off the ability to play a moving picture when people first begin the page stalking process. This one minute video gives you an idea what to expect, minus the graininess that comes from using your phone's less than stellar front-facing camera.

Chrome Data Saver Now Shaves Off Up To 70% Data By Loading Images On Demand On Slow Connections

Chrome introduced its data saving feature many versions of the app ago, but if you've kept it enabled on your device(s), you must have noticed that it's not exactly that efficient. It saves somewhere between 10 and 20% of your data, but that's not going to make a big difference if you're on a very slow network or a very limited plan. If you're suffering from the former, you'll be happy to know that Data Saver is going to get better.

The updated data saver mode can save up to 70% of your bandwidth by not loading a webpage's images when you're on a slow connection.

[Update: Smoking Gun] WhatsApp Is Blocking Telegram Links In Its Android App

Honest companies are expected to retain their users by offering the best service they can provide and not by actively locking them in and making it hard to switch to a competitor. Google, for example, lets users easily download all their contacts, bookmarks, photos, emails, and other personal data though Google Takeout. From there, anyone is free to close their account and move to a competing service, no questions asked.

Netflix App Update 4.0 Adds A Homescreen Widget, For Some Reason [APK Download]

Have you ever been so excited to watch Netflix's collection of movies, shows, and original content that you simply couldn't wait to get into the app itself before you start to browse? Apparently someone on the development team thinks so, because the latest version of the Android app (posted to APK Mirror earlier this evening) includes a homescreen widget. It's similar to the Play Store widgets, in that its only real purpose is to highlight some of the content on the service.

The widget is 5x5 in its unmodified state, though it reformats its triple-pane display with surprising grace as you enlarge or shrink it with your launcher's resizing tools.
