Reddit Is Fun Beta Update Adds Pull-To-Refresh, Expands Mail Notification Settings, Separates 'New' And 'Rising' Content, And More

Reddit Is Fun is a minimalist third-party client that keeps your focus on the task at hand - Redditing. Unfortunately, there's been a few areas where the app could use some work. The current version lacks pull-to-refresh and doesn't provide the ability to stop checking modmail (notifications for moderators) independently of regular mail. Clicking on New also serves a pop-up to select New or Rising every time, rather than just showing new content.

In between those countless hours spent cutting fruit, flinging birds, and laughing at cats, it might be beneficial to put your mind up to something more productive.

Path 3.4 Lets You Record And Share 30-Second Personal Videos, Tacky Camera Filters Included

Path is one of the few social networks that doesn't encourage users to befriend or follow as many people as they can, instead encouraging users to strengthen relationships with a limited number of others using messages and pictures. Now, add personal videos to that list. With version 3.4, users can now use Path to capture up to 30 seconds of video and share it with their friends.

Google Keyboard 2.0 Hits The Play Store, Brings Over Most Of The New Features Found On The Nexus 5

An updated version of Google Keyboard has made its way into the Play Store, taking most of the previously Nexus 5-exclusive features and expanding them out to other devices. We've covered the improvements in-depth before (and provided an APK), but in short, the swiping trail is now white, emoji are built-in, and users can swipe multiple words without having to lift up their finger. Unfortunately, some features still require KitKat, such as full-color emoji.

Yahoo Mail Turns Sixteen, Gets New 'Conversations' View, Syncs Themes, And Gives Free Users Features Previously Exclusive To Mail Plus

Yahoo Mail is turning sixteen (the service, not the company that runs it), and as we would tell any reckless teenager eager to get their hands on the wheel, it might want to slow down a bit. You see, the company has rolled out a slew of new features for the service that, on the whole, are positive, but the provided press photos makes me wonder if they expect anyone older than sixteen to use them.

Google Improves Search For Its 15th Anniversary, Introduces New Comparisons, Reminder Syncing, And Cards UI For Search Results

Google is 15 years old. Lets think about that for a moment: the company that has grown to have not one but two operating systems, develop self-driving cars, map much of the globe, manage most of our mail, offer an online collaborative office suite, and have a name ubiquitous enough to enter the dictionary, is younger than most of our readers. Google has only recently gone through puberty and is currently studying up for its driving exam.

Firefox Beta users, listen up. It's time to whip out your phone and check for updates. The slightly less stable version of Mozilla's mobile browser has made the leap to version 25, and it's picked up a few new features along the way. The most visible new feature is a new guest browsing mode that lets you safely hand the phone over to grandma without her getting a closer look at your browsing history than either of you ever wanted.
