Twitter is preparing to roll out two new features today in the form of group direct messaging and in-line video recording and editing. The group DMs are new for Twitter, but that video thing looks an awful lot like Vine.

If you've invested in a Sonos speaker system for your home, you have probably cursed the Sonos app on more than one occasion. It was vastly improved last spring, and now there's a new public beta that makes some welcome changes. According to Sonos, the new app is "A Little Bit Faster Now."

The Pushbullet team has long impressed us with the creation of a solid product that works as advertised across multiple platforms, pushing files and syncing notifications with ease. Now you can add more names to the list: Mac OS X and the Safari web browser, which join the existing iOS app to flesh out Pushbullet's support for Apple's ecosystem.

Let's be real here, there are no shortage of Mac users who carry around an Android phone (some of them even write for us).

DGLES

Update: To the developer's surprise, Google has returned D-GLES to the Play Store. People who bought it in the past no longer need to send emails requesting updates, and those who have purchased the Amazon version will continue to get new releases going forward. The latest one adds support for Amazon Fire TV and the Fire TV Stick.

Doom took the gaming world by storm in the early 90s, so when developer id Software open sourced the game's code later in the decade, fans of the groundbreaking first-person shooter rushed to port the title to whichever platforms they wished.

I love JotterPad. I've said it before, but I thought I'd preface with this disclaimer and then convince you why you should love it too. I'm not in the business of coercing anyone, but I think we'd all be better off if we did more writing, be it regular note taking, prose, poetry, journaling, or anything that involves putting a series of words in an order that makes sense with a decent serving of imagery and correct grammar sprinkled on top.

If you're going to watch local video files on your mobile device or Chromecast, Plex is one of the best ways to do it. This app relies on a server on your PC that transcodes almost any file and streams it to the app so you don't have to carry everything around. Today's update to v3.9 doesn't change the basic functionality, but it cuts down on the number of apps and brings a modest redesign.

Last Updated: January 27th, 2015

A week has passed since the Humble Mobile Bundle 10 made its presence known, and if you've been snatching up these pay-what-you-want deals for a while now, then you know what this means. That's right, more games. In addition to the six previously revealed titles, we also see the likes of iPollute, Sorcery, and The Tiny Bang Story.

iPollute is a puzzle game made distinctive by its stop motion clay animation.

Remember how Marriott hotels wanted to block WiFi hotspots and make everyone pay for internet access? It turns out giving Marriott money for lodging is maybe not a good idea in the first place. According to software developer Randy Westergren, it has been possible to access customer information on Marriott's servers without a password since the Android app was released in 2011.

It's been a few years since a Need for Speed game popped up on Android, but EA announced last year that NFS: No Limits would arrive this spring. The game has already launched on iOS in a few regions, and the early reports indicate EA is up to its same old in-app purchase tricks. Actually, it's maybe even a little worse. No Limits will charge you to fill up the tank, which is funny because that sounds like a limit.
