Google is working on Fuchsia OS support for Apple’s Swift programming language

Monday, November 20th, 2017

Google's in-development operating system, named 'Fuchsia,' first appeared over a year ago. It's quite different from Android and Chrome OS, as it runs on top of the real-time 'Magenta' kernel instead of Linux. According to recent code commits, Google is working on Fuchsia OS support for the Swift programming language.

If you're not familiar with it, Swift is a programming language developed by Apple, which can be used to create iOS/macOS/tvOS/watchOS applications (it can also compile to Linux).

Developers in Bangladesh and South Africa can now sell apps on the Play Store

Tuesday, November 7th, 2017

This will be great news for developers who live in Bangladesh and South Africa. Up until now, they couldn't register for a merchant account on Google Play, which meant that they could only publish free apps and games on the Store. But now they can, they finally can. Publishers in Bangladesh will have their currencies set to USD, but those in South Africa will be on the local ZAR.

This is good news for both publishers and users in these countries.

Adaptive icon bug in Swipe for Facebook causes random reboots on Oreo devices, thankfully latest update fixes it

Thursday, November 2nd, 2017

If there's one thing sure to ruin your day, it's an unexpected reboot of your smartphone. Even worse if the bug proves so bad that your phone eventually insists you do a factory reset, losing data in the process. This is exactly the situation that has befallen a number of Nexus and Pixel owners in recent days, and it's all to do with a third-party Facebook wrapper called Swipe.

 

According to app reviews on the Play Store, version 7.2 of Swipe for Facebook would cause phones running Oreo to crash and potentially spiral into a bootloop.
