Chrome Dev Revamps The Bookmarks Widget With Material Design

We already know at least one improvement with the latest Chrome Dev build (v51): the complete removal of the 'Merge Tabs and Apps' option. Well, here's the second improvement: a brand new widget. Or rather, a revamped version of an older widget.

The bookmarks widget, formerly with big, largely useless thumbnails, has been re-designed to use a list item style instead of a grid, and material design navigation. The result is a much cleaner-looking widget, with better, easier to understand navigation to boot. It has shown me how disorganised my bookmarks are, though.

Of course, the widget won't make your bookmarks any more organised - we can only hope that feature will come to Google Now in the future - but maybe it will encourage you to organise them into folders and such.

LendingRobot Lets You Monitor Your Portfolio Performance On Prosper, Lending Club, And Funding Circle

If you listen to as many podcasts as I do, you must be familiar with Prosper thanks to its many ads across different podcast networks. The company's business model is to let peers lend money to each other, without any banks or institutions standing in the middle, or so I understand. But Prosper isn't alone in this domain, there's Lending Club and Funding Circle as well. The problem with all of these sites is that they don't offer a mobile application (update: well, Prosper does have an app) which is a big miss in our modern day. What good is an awesome portfolio if you can't see its performance from your phone while walking your dog in your suburban neighborhood?

YouTube Gaming v1.3.63 Includes Several Little Visual Enhancements [APK Download]

Google shipped quite a few updates this week, some of which are adding (or teasing) legitimate usability improvements, while others tend to be a bit more cosmetic. The new version of YouTube Gaming leans in the direction of the latter group, though some of its changes speak to subtle improvements for information visibility. There are quite a few little details and some of them aren't obvious unless you're looking very close.

What's New

Kingdom Hearts X, A Browser Game Based On The Popular Square-Enix-Disney Universe, Gets An 'Unchained' Android Port

I find most Square-Enix RPGs to be baffling in that somewhat generic anime way: as one reviewer puts it, the stories always seem to revolve around a bunch of teenagers killing Satan with the power of friendship. Throw in perhaps one of the biggest (or at least most complicated) crossovers in media history, and my head starts to spin. So it is with the Kingdom Hearts series of action-RPGs. It's been mixing Squaresoft's Final Fantasy mythos with more or less every Disney animated movie, plus its own impenetrable plots and original characters, since the first game came out on the PS2.

Facebook says there are 900,000,000 people who use Messenger on a regular basis. That's a lot of people, so Facebook has come up with a new way to make it easier to find someone. You now have the option of creating a Messenger username, which also works as a link or a scannable code.

[KeyBard] SwiftKey Announces ShakeSpeak, A Predictive Keyboard For All Your Shakespearean Needs

It appears SwiftKey missed April 1 by a few days, as today the company has uploaded a new keyboard app with a difference: instead of using SwiftKey's predictive talents to figure out what your next word will be, it uses none other than William Shakespeare's own words. That's right, England's most famous playwright powers the 'KeyBard,' or rather his words do.

If you start typing a famous Shakespeare quote, such as, "A rose by any other name would smell as sweet," or, "Now is the winter of our discontent," the app will try and fill them in and complete the sentence.
