The Skype app has had its fair share of problems over the years, and today's update fixes one particularly annoying quirk. It's not all about fixing mistakes, though. The update adds some useful new stuff too.

Since Google I/O we've been waiting anxiously to see which apps would be among the first to gain compatibility with Chrome OS. As Sundar Pichai explained at this summer's conference, Google plans to get Android apps running natively on the company's desktop OS, using App Runtime for Chrome.

Google is carefully curating the experience, however, working with select developers to make apps available through Chrome's web store. In September, Duolingo, Evernote, Vine, and Sight Words came to Chrome, and today Google announced a lineup of seven new apps, including Cookpad, Couchsurfing, Overdrive, and four others.

If you've been waiting patiently for the Nexus 9 Keyboard Folio case to pop up on the Play Store (or your Amazon order has been delayed interminably), it's there - at least in the US.

For $129, you can have the case in your hands early next week, most likely, and then you'll be typing away. The Keyboard Folio case has a full smart cover-style folding system and, while it is quite bulky, will probably be the only case/keyboard combo for the Nexus 9 available.

Pebble-Thumb

For Android users, the Pebble Steel sits in a somewhat precarious position. It has the build quality of a designer watch, but it has the screen of something from what increasingly feels like a bygone era. The end result is something that looks premium and not-so-much at the same time, especially when lined up against its shinier Android Wear competitors on the store shelf.

But the Pebble Steel isn't a bad purchase, and Best Buy's currently willing to make it a better one.

You're heading to work to make money, but what if you could earn a little extra on the way? That's what Lyft is promising with its latest initiative, Driver Destination.

The new service extends to drivers what Lyft Line offered passengers. It lets drivers offer rides to people who are heading in the same direction, and it pays them for the trip.

The Time Warner Cable app has been updated with a few bug fixes and whatnot. One notable change is that it actually works on Android 5.0 now. See, before it just didn't run on Lollipop, but the changelog calls it a simple crash fix. Oh, you guys.

While manually syncing your phone's linked accounts isn't something most of us are in the practice of doing these days, there are situations where it can be prudent to disable syncing certain items, such as those you don't find yourself using very often. Previously, when you did want to sync these un-synced items on your phone, you went into the accounts UI in settings and tapped "sync now" to force all the items on an account to sync immediately.

TuneInthumb

TuneIn Radio may have made users wait patiently for Chromecast support, but it's here at last. Not only that, there are bits of Material Design sprinkled throughout the latest version of the app as well.

You have your updated menu button that rotates into a back arrow, Play Store style. When you tap the drop-down menu, the corners have been rounded off. The navigation bar stays black, but the status bar is tinted.
