thumbnail

I’ve only had to find a notary once or twice in my life, but each time, it felt like such a hassle. I was younger and the process of finding a random person to watch me sign a document and then pay them for doing so felt like a very odd thing. Regardless, it’s something that needs to be done from to time, and I’m happy to report that a newly launched app for Android, called Notarize, should make the process extremely simplistic. The way it ...

This Google Arts & Culture App Meme is Quite Good

thumbnail

If you’ve been on social media recently, maybe you’ve seen this bit going around where people use a selfie of themselves in the Google Arts & Culture app, which is then cross referenced with paintings inside of museums around the world. It’s pretty funny, and even though I apparently look like no one who has ever been painted (maybe that’s for the best), it’s still a lot of fun to try. All you need to get started is the Arts & Culture app from Google Play, linked ...

Samsung Pay users, be on the lookout for a new update, labeled as build 2.8.18. Inside this update, Samsung includes an updated UI, one that users are apparently liking quite a bit.

Back in June, Google created a new category on Google Play called Android Excellence (like an Editors’ Choice) as a way to recognize the best apps and games on the platform. These weren’t just top performers either. Instead, the apps and games that made the cut offer up incredible experiences, use Google’s best practices, perform well, are optimized properly, and have great design.

Google’s Product Head of Allo and Duo Leaves for Facebook

thumbnail

Allo and Duo are still a part of Google’s confusing messaging situation. It’s tough to tell if many of you use either of them. Since they are Google products, though, we’ve spent plenty of hours talking about the ways they have evolved and where Google has tried to improve upon their original feature sets. Things may change some on all of those fronts going forward, as the head of product for Allo and Duo, Amit Fulay, has left the company and moved over to Facebook. I’m ...

Many of you might already use a password manager, which is a great tool for keeping your digital passwords in order. Well, Dashlane introduced Project Mirror this week, with the company declaring war on the institute of passwords as a whole. Interestingly, though, Project Mirror is essentially a password manager, but also a keeper for all things digital security, including biometrics and automatic handling of multi-factor authentication steps. Project Mirror, at least the way Dashlane explains it, seems quite comprehensive. Here’s what they write that sums ...
