SwiftKey Keyboard updated with new default themes and redesigned hub

SwiftKey is undoubtedly one of the most popular third-party keyboard apps in the Play Store, even after it was acquired by Microsoft. SwiftKey is apparently using all that sweet, sweet Microsoft money to make some changes to the app. Starting today, a new version is rolling out with three new default themes and a redesigned hub.

Google updates the look of the stocks finance card in Search

We heard of Google Finance's complete overhaul a few days ago, but it seems that hints of the new design could be hiding in Google's latest stocks card interface. If you search for any stock value on Google, it provides you with a card that details its price history, performance, and provides comparison against other stocks and news.

Now that interface has changed. Instead of one long page where you scroll down to each separate section you have 4 tabs for Overview, News, Compare, and Financials. The blue line in the graph has also been replaced by a filled green one, and the different history periods are now tappable buttons instead of tabs.

[Update: There's an easier way] Tip: You can edit the shortcuts at the top of the Google Feed, sort of

Google has been toying with changes to the Google Feed in its eponymous app all year, seemingly settling on a translucent look when you swipe right from your launcher home screen, or the three-tab interface in the full app. Google may still be testing different options, so yours may not be the same as mine, but I find it a lot worse than what I had before, especially as I can't swipe away cards to dismiss them anymore.

Another fairly recent introduction, in both views, are the shortcuts at the top of the feed (see above image). By default, four of them are on display: current weather, Eat & Drink, Translate, and Solitaire.

Disney merges its TV apps into 'DisneyNOW'

In the past, Disney has had one app for each of its TV networks - Disney Channel, Disney Junior, and Disney XD. That means three apps you have to manage, and (at least) three times you have to enter your cable credentials to get access to all available content. Now the company is consolidating all three into the new 'DisneyNOW' app.

Unofficial Google Camera port updated with RAW support and HDR+ customization

Perhaps the best aspect of last year's Google Pixel was the camera, partially thanks to Google's fantastic (but proprietary) HDR+ image processing technology. That feature was limited to Google's own devices, until a developer going by the name 'B-S-G' modified the app to run on most phones with a Snapdragon 820, 821, or 835 processor. For many devices, it was an upgrade over the included camera app, especially for the Essential phone.

Google Photos 3.6 makes video sharing way faster

When your bandwidth doesn't oblige, sharing videos via Google Photos can be a bit frustrating. Videos are, well, large. And uploading large files can take a while, especially if you're in a congested area, on a throttled connection, or traveling. But now Google Photos has cut down the wait by uploading low-resolution copies for sharing first. And don't worry, your friends won't be stuck with blurry potatoes, those videos are later replaced with high-quality versions.
