Google Is Rolling Out The Ability To Install Apps Directly From Search Results

Google is always testing one or two little things in search results, but this is a more significant change. We're starting to see the option to install apps from inside Google search results without opening the Play Store. Not everyone is getting this yet, but enough are that it's probably in the early stages of a wide rollout.

Sony Renames Socialife App To 'News Suite' As Part Of A Big Update And Redesign

You can expect a smartphone to come with camera and gallery apps of its own. The manufacturer may also make the time to produce something for taking notes or doodling. Then there are news apps. These aren't guaranteed to appear, and those that come pre-installed take various forms. In Sony's case, there's Socialife, which now has the more straightforward name News Suite. This change comes as part of a big overhaul that made its way into the Play Store.

[Deal Alert] LG G Watch Urbane Available For $200 From BuyDig Via eBay Once Again

Even though it's been out for a while now, the LG G Watch Urbane is still one of the most premium Android Wear devices you can buy. Its normal price currently sits around $250, but today you can pick one up for just $200 on BuyDig via eBay. We posted this deal a couple of weeks back, but that was just days after the holidays and I expect that some of you were too broke or hung over to notice. You're welcome.

Roomi Moves Into The Play Store, Simplifies Roommate Search In Select US Cities

My only understanding of the roommate concept comes from movies and TV series. The way it's always portrayed is with people hanging up flyers with detachable numbers that others can call to enquire about a certain room available for rent. That's so last century. Nowadays we have the internet and there are useful/creepy places like Craigslist to find roommates, but with services like Airbnb making it easier to communicate with people before you let them into your home, a roommate equivalent service was bound to pop up. That's Roomi.

Roomi has been available on iOS since June, but it just made the relocation to both Android and the Web.

WhatsApp Goes Officially Free On All Platforms, Promises No Ads And Better Business Communication To Stay Profitable

Ever since its launch, WhatsApp has had two business models on paper: you pay for the app on iOS or Blackberry (that has changed a long time ago when the app went free) or you get the first year free and you have to pay $0.99/yr afterward. However, that latter model was never put into action consistently. Despite having used the messenger for more than 6 or 7 years, I was never charged once and neither have any of my friends and relatives.
