Microsoft releases Hummingbird, a personalized news app powered by AI

Thursday, December 13th, 2018

Everyone is trying to crack the curated news segment. From Google News to Apple News to Facebook and Twitter's algorithmic feeds, some of the biggest companies out there are doing their best to find the news you want to read, but if I'm being honest, few of them manage to do it.

The Weather Channel v9.0 forecasts a fresh UI with 100% chance of weather “stories” and trending conditions

Thursday, December 13th, 2018

Weather apps are a dime a dozen on the Play Store, but few are as popular or as religiously used as The Weather Channel's app. Over the past few days, the app has received an update that refreshes the entire interface and adds a few new features.

The new homescreen shows important alerts on top, matches the background hue to the current conditions, and offers quick access to multiple graphs. If you're missing your usual Weather Channel content, all you have to do is swipe up and you'll get today's details, the seasonal hub indexes, radar, videos, and more cards. A new bottom tab also lets you quickly switch between these, and a side menu on the left has temperature unit and notification toggles, plus access to more settings.
