[No Food Jokes] New Instagram UI Rolling Out For Some Users

If you're a regular user of Instagram, you may soon notice some nice changes to its look. The photo sharing service appears to be quietly rolling out a tweaked UI to some users, likely via a server-side switch. There hasn't been any official announcement from the company yet, but on the surface it looks like a lot of the blue has been toned down in favor of black, and there are new icons for the photo controls.

Normally this would be the point where people would put in a cliché joke about people taking pictures of their food, but I'm going to refrain because I actually love Instagram.

Google Rolls Out Small Tweaks To Google+ App (v7.7) And Web Interface

Google is always making little changes here and there that aren't worth going into detail on, but you add up enough little changes and baby, you got a stew going. Er, I mean a post. A blog post... like this one. At any rate, the Google+ app has been updated to v7.7 and the web got a feature update a few days ago.

Firefox 46 Goes Stable, Drops Support For Android Honeycomb

Another Firefox update is making its way out to devices. Unless they're running Honeycomb, that is. This version of Mozilla's open source browser does not work on tablets running Android 3.0 - 3.2.

Considering less than 0.1% of Android users were on Honeycomb two years ago, only four or five people will be saddened by this news.

Everyone else will see popular websites such as Facebook and YouTube show up in the Top Sites panel at first launch. Notifications about tabs opened in the background now list URLs. Firefox 46 will also request permissions as needed instead of when first installed, thanks to Android 6.0.

Radon Uses Google's Nearby API To Easily Share Links To Other Devices

Google's Nearby API is one of the coolest things developers aren't using. I mean, they are, but not as often as I had hoped. Radon is a new sharing app based on Nearby, and it's pretty cool. Just share something to Radon, and it will search for target devices in close proximity with WiFi, Bluetooth, and ultrasonic pulses.

Now That Twitter Has Murdered Fenix, Finch Is A Decent (And Free) Alternative Third-Party Client For Android

So, Twitter. Hi. It's been a while. Are you people still completely screwing both the developers and the users that helped to make your platform a household name? Yeah? I kind of thought you'd get your heads out of your asses at this point, but I guess not. Since your stupid, stupid, stupid policies have killed yet another quality Twitter app for Android, ostensibly so you can continue to push your entirely mediocre first-party solution, it's time for us to look for another one.

[Deal Alert] Telltales' Game Of Thrones Episodes Are Now $1.99 (60% Off) And The Entire Season Pass Is $4.99 (75% Off)

The way I understand it, Game Of Thrones is a TV show where every character that you love or hate dies, where people get terrified when Winter is coming, and where dragons and nudes cater to every person's weird and unfulfilled fantasies. Or something. I want to watch the show, but I can't handle all the suspense, so I'm going to wait until the last season starts and then binge watch it until I forget what daylight is and what real people do.

The Game of Thrones Android game is a different story though. It's an adventure game developed by Telltale, which has made a name for itself in this genre thanks to intriguing scripts and excellent voice acting.

Fenix Pulled From Play Store After Hitting Twitter's Dumb Token Limit

Twitter instituted the API token limit way back in 2012. Since then, a number of high-profile apps have maxed out at 100,000 users and been retired. The latest app to become a victim of its own success is Fenix. It ran out of tokens yesterday and now it's gone from the Play Store. It took almost exactly two years.
