Meet the new guy: Hagop Kavafian

Hello there, friends! I'm Hagop, one of the newest additions to the Android Police team. As we say, I'm part of the "night crew" because I'm based in France and I work hard on delivering news when America is asleep. Of course, I also focus on bringing content to our readers across the world, who get to read my posts fresh out the oven. What I love here is the diverse background our writers and editors have, how we work together, but also how awesome our readers are! In the few weeks I've been writing for AP, you taught me so much, and interacting with you has been a genuine pleasure, so thank you for that.

Hello? It's me, I was wondering if everyone has heard this song already or if we'd have to go over everything. They say a good update is supposed to heal apps, but JetBlue ain't done much healing...

Well, it kinda did. Version 3.0 of the app got some important additions like check-in cancelation, seat upgrade, and info scanning, but the reason we're talking about it is the last line in JetBlue's changelog. You all know how we love an interesting changelog here at AP (example 1, 2, etc) because it shows the human side of developers and corporations, and this one caught our attention.

Hello Dialer From Facebook Updated To Version 2.0 With New Layout, Missed Call Notifications, Contact Filters, And More

Facebook's Hello dialer is an interesting extension of the social service into core telephony functions. That said, the original release was a bit barebones and left a lot to be desired. Version 2.0 (which has come just a couple of months after the initial release) adds some important features and a tweaked interface that should win it a few more converts from the stock dialer app. Chief among these are the ability to filter the contact view to just those contacts with phone numbers, and notifications for missed and blocked calls.
