YouTube comments have a reputation for being one of the most retched hives of scum and villainy this side of 4Chan. Things are about to change in YouTube land, though. Google has just announced that YouTube comments are switching over to Google+ in the coming months, starting with the channel discussion tab later this week.

Venmo 5.0 Introduces New Holo-Friendly Look, More Responsive News Feed, Home Screen Widget, Better Notifications, And More

One of PayPal's problems is that it's immensely popular. As the service implements more features and grows to support a larger user base, it inevitably loses some people along the way. If you want an app that makes it easy to send money to friends that isn't PayPal, Venmo is worth a look. It's simple, doesn't charge to send money from most bank accounts or debit cards, and it just received an update that makes the experience look more at home on Android.

Ixonos Shows Off A New Version Of Its Awesome Android Multi-Window Tech, Still Won't Say Who It's Being Developed For

Mobile devices are designed primarily as a modal experience. You use one app at a time, but can switch between them quickly. Multi-window interfaces and floating apps have been implemented a few times as an alternative, but most of these solutions are a bit clunky. Ixonos has released a new video demo of its multi-window technology, and it looks much better. If only we knew where to get it.

Windows can be resized dynamically by dragging the corner, just like a desktop.

Possible Upcoming Facebook App Interface Changes Revealed In Beta 3.7

Facebook's Android app isn't what you'd call a shining example of standards-based development, but it's been steadily improving for the last couple of years. A tipster who's using the latest Facebook Android beta sent us screenshots of what the next major iteration might look like. After resetting his account and being sent the relevant codes, our reader noticed two "code generator" entries in the app's slide-out menu. Tapping the first one shifted his app's UI considerably.

HTC Americas President Jason Mackenzie just finished saying HTC One Dev Edition owners could expect an Android 4.3 update this week, but it also looks like the update is rolling out en masse in Taiwan.

Ookla Teases Speedtest 3.0 For Android, Should Hit Google Play 'This Week'

When it comes to testing your network speed, Ookla's Speedtest app is the unmatched champion. But it hasn't seen a substantial update in a very long time, and it doesn't even scale properly on some devices (*cough* Nexus 4 *cough*). Looks like the company has been working on a new version of the app for a while now, which it just teased on Twitter.

Samsung Unveils New ISOCELL Camera Sensor Technology With Improved Color Fidelity In Low-Light Conditions, Starting Mass Production Q4 2013

Samsung has announced a new advanced pixel technology for CMOS image sensors called ISOCELL that it promises will get higher color fidelity in poor lighting conditions. This new technology has currently been developed for use in an 8MP camera, and it's scheduled to enter mass production in Q4 2013. We can reasonably expect this advancement to appear in future Galaxy products down the road.

Avast Gives Free One-Year Premium Licenses (Worth $15) To Users Who Paid For Theft Aware Before Avast Acquired It

Theft Aware was possibly the most ingenious Android security solution back before it was bought out by Avast. At the time, developer ITAgents promised paying customers that they would be remembered once Avast rolled out a premium version of their mobile security suite. Now that time has come. Avast is giving away free one-year licenses to anyone who previously purchased Theft Aware, a savings of $15.
