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. Read More
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. Read More
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. Read More
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. Read More
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.

Sky Go is the way Sky provides subscribers with the ability to take their favorite channels, shows, and movies with them when they stand up from in front of the TV. The latest update to hit the mobile app gives the experience a visual refresher. Read More
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. Read More
Say what you will about Facebook's commitment to privacy, the company does offer a Tor address for secure, anonymous connections. That's cool, but you need to use a Tor-enabled browser. That will change in the coming days as Facebook rolls out support for Tor in the Android app. Read More
Have you ever wanted to view a document on your smartwatch? Don't lie. What, you have? Oh, well, um, now you can, all thanks to developer appfour.
To lay your eyes on 1.3 inches of barely readable fuzziness, open the Documents app on your smartwatch. The app will pull the list of recently used documents from your phone. You can tap on any of them to get a fullscreen view (which ultimately doesn't amount to much) of the paper, slideshow, or spreadsheet. Read More
