[Hands-On] WhatsApp Web Goes Live For Android Users (BlackBerry And Windows Phone Too, But Not iOS)

Deep breaths. It's happening. WhatsApp Web just went live. Wait, where did you run off to scrolling to the bottom of the page for the link? I have important things to discuss here, like the latest Archer episode. Literally. OK, OK, I won't stall any longer.

The web service, which we first heard about last month, has been officially announced on WhatsApp's blog. As the rumors suggested, it relies on the mobile WhatsApp application as the authenticator through a QR code authorization.

BBC News App For The UK Gets A Complete Material Overhaul

Attention British people, the BBC News app has been updated with a completely new look—material design and all that. So people must be happy, right? Of course not, because things have changed and change is bad. Sure is pretty, though.

Dropbox Continues International Expansion With Acquisition Of Israel-Based Company CloudOn

Dropbox has decided to buy CloudOn, an Israel-based company whose bread and butter consists of providing iPhone and iPad owners with a means of editing Microsoft Word documents in the cloud. The company gained popularity doing this at a time before Microsoft was fully ready to commit to the idea itself. The service worked with a number of cloud storage providers, of which Dropbox was one.

Instagram Starts Official Play Store Beta Program

The Instagram app for Android might have a few problems, but you can be among the first to get fixes if you join the new official beta program (or maybe just bugs, hard to say). It's a regular Play Store beta, so sign-up only takes a few seconds. Just don't get too excited about the first beta build.

Workplace Collaboration App Asana Finally Goes Native With A Big v3.0 Material Redesign

Asana is a popular collaboration tool that keeps members of a team in contact without scattering conversations around in emails, text messages, and so on. The problem until now has been that the app was horrendously clunky and unpleasant. It was actually just a web wrapper—but no more. Asana v3.0 is a native app, and it's all material and whatnot.

Update: Bans are occurring on at least one other 3rd-party WhatsApp client, WhatsAppMD, so it can likely be assumed that any usage of a 3rd-party WhatsApp client at the moment may get you temporarily banned, at least until workarounds are developed. According to the developer of WhatsAppMD, the fix may be as simple as changing the app signature to match the official app's. If that solution does work, you'll likely see it implemented shortly.

Google Field Trip 2.0 Update Brings Material Design Elements And Content From New Publishers

Field Trip is one of Google's less-known official apps (from the same people who work on Ingress), and appropriately, one of the most unique. The urban exploration app gets its 2.0 update today, bringing the user interface in line with Material Design standards introduced with Android 5.0. As nice as it is to see Google keeping its apps fresh, I have to say that the redesign takes something away in this case.

[Facepalm] 'Battery Life Repair' Is Selling The Placebo Effect For $3 In The Play Store [Update: It's Gone]

Battery not working correctly? Well, just defrag it! It's all so obvious now. No, but really, there's an app in the Play Store that claims to repair your battery and basically looks like a hard drive defrag program. The weird part, it's been in the Play Store for a long time and people (some of them real) rate it quite highly. This is very sad.
