Facebook enabling in-app browser for links on some accounts

42

Facebook is rolling out a new feature in its app that many have offered for some time — an in-app browser — to speed up reading and sharing of links found within the social network. As is the case in many RSS readers and Twitter apps, Facebook's in-app browser will load the web page of a link you clicked within the Facebook app, rather than tossing you out to Chrome or another browser that you have installed on your phone.

55
Samsung Galaxy S5 camera

Are you looking for something a little extra in your Android camera app? Maybe more creative options, or more detailed technical control? Maybe something easier to use? We've got our five favourite camera apps for Android right here. It's worth noting that though there's a ton of overlap with photo editing apps, we're trying to focus on apps that are primarily for taking pictures for this round-up, rather than apps for editing the end result.

Dscout review: going beyond Project Ara

27
This simple white app gives out nice green cash

The survey app from Project Ara is back, and it's paying out

Many of you might've heard of dscout before; it was the app that Project Ara used while trying to hone in on its prototype. Users would complete surveys in the hopes of eventually being rewarded with a unit later in the project. And like many of you, when we fell behind on that (which for me was when they started having us make fake phones that we were supposed to get feedback on from other actual, physical human beings) most of us kinda forgot the app was there.

Well, there's a reason to open it back up again, or install it if you don't have it yet: dscout is giving out something better than the chance at prototypes: cold, hard cash. Well, they're giving out checks, mostly, but they're giving people money to be opinionated on their phones, and I'm sure there's more than a few readers out there who love to speak their minds and wouldn't mind padding their wallets for it. But is the app good enough to bear your opinions and possibly your soul to?

Retrica review

6
Retrica

Filter fanatics will enjoy this simple app, but serious photographers will have to look elsewhere

There are plenty of ways to put funky retro filters on your photos, but many focus on tweaking after the fact rather than doing it on the fly. Retrica is one camera app that's picked up a sizable following for offering a huge set of neat and artistic filters that are applied to the viewfinder live as you're taking photos, and letting you quickly share them out to any service you choose.

Working with photos this way creates a different dynamic than snapping a picture and laboring over filters and tweaks later, but for some people the live filters of Retrica will offer a more spontaneous and fun experience. Read along for our full review of Retrica, another choice in a full stable of camera apps on Android.
