Google Chrome will automatically download news articles for offline reading

Friday, June 22nd, 2018

There has been a big push to improve internet access and make it easier to view online content in NBU markets (Next Billion Users) in recent years. Google's latest Chrome feature also has this in mind, as it will download relevant news articles automatically while connected to WiFi so the user can view them later when only a less reliable data connection or none at all is available.

Chrome's data saver has been great for users in developing countries, and this new addition will help to save further precious bytes assuming the content it decides to download is actually relevant.

Thursday, June 21st, 2018

Google Photos version 3.23 just started making the rounds, but there doesn't appear to be anything immediately changing with the update. However, the traditional clues about upcoming features are certainly there to be seen. We can look forward to applying some of those smooth bokeh effects of portrait mode, and this time, we'll control the intensity of the blur. There will also be a new option to downgrade your already backed-up photos to high quality so you can get back some of that cloud storage.

Samsung Good Lock 2018 returns with lots more custom-UI action: Here’s what it can do

Tuesday, June 19th, 2018

Some smartphone users are perfectly content to just use their handsets as they arrived, with the phone's interface configured to all its default settings. Others will take the time to personalize a little by changing the wallpaper, and maybe tweaking something like font size to their liking. And then there are users who will settle for nothing less than a fully customized user experience. For Samsung fans counting themselves among that latter camp, we used to have the Good Lock app, presenting multiple avenues for adjusting the Galaxy S7's interface.

Still, most of the early phones were flagships or at least on the higher end of mid-range. With the latest update, we're now seeing ARCore expanding to some budget handsets.

Google Keep now lets you indent items in lists

Friday, June 8th, 2018

For the better part of two years, Google Keep has been my main list and note app. I use it constantly with my husband to keep track of our grocery shopping and things that need to be done around the house, and I also list some of my gym routines on it plus countless other things. The issue, however, is that lists were a single-indent affair until now, making it very tedious to organize sub-items.
