Twitter is testing a bottom navigation bar in its app

Phones are big these days, and that can make UI elements at the top of your screen hard to reach. Thus, apps are increasingly going for the bottom navigation tabs. Even some Google apps are all over the bottom tabs. Now, Twitter appears to be testing a bottom nav UI. We've seen several reports, but it seems there's no way to trigger the UI yourself.

Samsung will cram bloatware apps from Verizon's Oath into its phones

You know what my $800 smartphone is missing? Sponsored content and ads that are accessible with a hardware button. No one has ever actually said that and meant it, but that's what Samsung owners could be getting very soon. Verizon's Oath, which includes Yahoo and AOL properties, has announced a deal with Samsung to integrate its content and "native ads" into Bixby Home and pre-load more bloatware apps.

[Hands-on] Dungeon Hunter Champions, a mashup of ARPG and MOBA mechanics that result in nothing special

Gameloft's Dungeon Hunter is a very well known action RPG series for Android, and it looks like the studio is trying to evolve it into something new so that they can latch onto the latest trend of MOBA gameplay.

I suppose the devs feel this will appeal to old and new fans alike, which really isn't a terrible strategy.

Smartphone manufacturers know that shoppers have a ton of options, so making your own offering stand out from the crowd is critical. But all too often we end up with a phone that feels like it was designed by its marketing department, with a smattering of buzz-hungry keywords that do little to impact the day-to-day user experience.

And while it can occasionally be impressive, it also feels like a truly “intelligent” camera should be held to a higher standard than what we get here.
