eBay app updated with interface tweaks and delivery schedule options

eBay's Android app has had a beefy update that introduces new home screen notifications, search improvements, and bigger item images, plus additional options for in-store pick-up and same-day delivery with eBay Now. Meanwhile sellers can now designate from the app that the money from their eBay sale is going towards specific charities. eBay's Giving Works initiative has already raised over $500 million in this way. Sellers can check a buyer's location when checking best offers, and payment reminders can be sent from the app now too.

Google Hangouts and Google Voice are finally playing nice

132
Google Hangouts and Google Voice

Well, here's a pleasant late-night surprise. Looks like Google Hangouts finally has the long-overdue integration with Google Voice, meaning that your messages from Google Voice (and not traditional SMS messages from the actual phone number assigned to your SIM card — it's a bit of a mess to explain, we know) can finally show up in Google Hangouts.

That means a couple things. First is that you'll only need one app — Hangouts — to receive text messages and Hangouts messages. (Not sure yet what that means for voicemails through Google Voice.) It also means that you'll be able to get traditional text messages through the Hangouts extension in Chrome, which is nice.

Tasker advanced use

51

I love Tasker. And I say it a lot. I say it so much that my keyboard's prediction now pops up Tasker after I type the word love. And Tasker can do a lot. A whole lot. But in order to do it, it needs to be programmed or you need to stick a button on your home screen, or a gesture control. I covered voice controls last time, and today, rather than using them for media controls, we'll be using them for something far more helpful: squeezing more battery out of your phone. I was also contacted by the wonderful wizard of Tasker plugins, João Dias, and he gave me a more targeted manner of playing media using his AutoShare plugin, which I'll share later in the article.
