Fit more on your Galaxy S7's screen with condensed mode

Galaxy S7 condensed mode

With a new software update, Samsung lets you increase your GS7's information density dramatically — at the expense of one or two things looking a little weird.

Phones are getting bigger with each release cycle, but new devices don't always let us see more stuff on the screen at once. This is an issue Samsung has attempted to solve with a new addition to the Galaxy S7 series: "display scaling." Simply put, this lets you not only adjust the size of fonts — as Samsung phones have for some time — but the way the entire user interface is scaled.

PlanetPron app for Android updated with Material UI and new features [NSFW]

107

This post is about a great update to an app designed to look at porn. It's not safe for work or children, and some readers may find the content offensive.

Really. I don't want to offend anyone here, I just want to write about an Android app that's done really well. If you don't want to read about pornography, please hit your back button and know that we don't judge you or anyone else.

We first had a look at the PlanetPron app for Android when the service first launched. It's an adult app and an adult service that has pictures and video of adults doing adult things, for consenting adults to watch. But just because it's all about pornography doesn't mean that the app shouldn't be done well, and the service doesn't have to be secure. There's a big update coming very soon for the Android app, and it's worth revisiting.
