Wire messaging app now allows “secure file sharing”

2014-12-03-13_59_13-Wire-Android-Apps-on-Google-PlayEnd-to-end encryption seems to be the name of the game now in terms of messaging apps. Wire is one of the newer apps out there that offer this secure way of communicating with colleagues or loved ones through voice, video, and group chats. The latest update to the app now brings the ability to send files to whoever it is you’re chatting with, as well as the ability to directly reply through notifications and support for two more languages. Wire says that one of their most requested features is to be able to send files within conversations. Now, it is possible through both the desktop version and the mobile apps as well. You can start sharing files up to 25MB in size by pressing the + button at the bottom of your chat window and then choose which files to share. You can send Office documents, PDFs, videos, and other file types. If you receive files on your window, you can view it right within the conversation, open them up with the app of your choice, or save the file on your device. Of course, the files you send back and forth are also fully end-to-end encrypted, just like all the messages you exchange with contacts. You will also now be able to reply to messages without having to open up the Wire app itself. If you receive the notification, you can reply from there directly. The update also brings language support for French and Russian. You can update your Wire app as it has started rolling out to users. If you still don’t have Wire and would like to try out a new, more secure messaging app, you can download it for free from the Google Play Store. SOURCE: Wire

Mobile Nations Weekly: A little bit of give and take

The tech gods giveth and the tech gods taketh.

The news this week around Apple revolved around money. Apple reported their quarterly earnings, and while they were right in track with what Apple had predicted, it was the first time that Apple saw a year-over-year drop thanks to a slip in iPhone sales. And Wall Street lost its collective mind despite Apple's forecasting of a great-but-not-spectacular quarter three months prior. Oh, happy day — Facebook and Facebook Messenger arrived for Windows 10! And Instagram is officially on windows 10 Mobile — and it matches the Instagram for iPhone app feature-for-feature! But wait, Windows Phone is dead, right? Far from it, says Windows chief Terry Myerson. Comings and goings were the story on the Android front. Gmail picked up Exchange support, Marshmallow came to the BlackBerry Priv, and rumor has it the Google Play Store might be coming to Chrome OS. Meanwhile, the classic Nexus 9 tablet left the Google Store and a popular Twitter app left… and then came back. We're still about 18 months out from the launch of the Tesla Model 3, but that doesn't mean excitement can't build until then — especially when there's a Ludicrous Mode upgrade waiting in the wings. And, just for giggles, how's the Model 3 compare to the Nissan Leaf? (hint, it doesn't fair well for Nissan — or Vice President Biden). And if the $35,000 starting price for the Model 3 is too rich for your blood, and we totally understand if it is, don't worry — there's a smaller and more affordable Tesla coming after it.

Android Central — Google has a big week

As we approach Google I/O, interesting information about the Google Play Store coming to Chrome OS has emerged — that'll be one to watch in a few weeks. In more Google news, the Gmail app now supports Exchange email accounts. The Google Camera app also received an update this week with performance improvements and some slick new graphics. The Nexus 9 is no longer on sale from Google — let the speculation begin! You may have noticed that popular Twitter app Fenix was pulled from Google Play this week … only to triumphantly come back days later. We're not sure how long that'll last. The transition to USB-C has been … less than perfect, but Qualcomm assures us that phones using the new connector are fine to work with its Quick Charge 3.0 standard.

CrackBerry — Marshmallow!

This week, Marshmallow arrived officially factory unlocked Priv's, BlackBerry hired a new senior vice president for global device sales and finally, rolled out BBM Video in beta form for Android and iOS through a BBM update.

Tesla Central — Absolutely Ludicrous

We're still about 18 months out from the first Tesla Model 3 sedans rolling off the assembly line, so there's still plenty to learn about the car — and plenty of comparisons to make. So we decided to pit the Model 3 against its best available EV competition: the Nissan Leaf. The Leaf is an okay car, and by virtue of its price the best-selling EV to date. But, at least on paper, the Tesla Model 3 absolutely obliterates the Nissan Leaf. And that's before we even get to fancy versions like the kind that will be equipped with Ludicrous Mode. And for a taste of what Ludicrous Mode can do, here's a 3-ton Model X electric SUV with Ludicrous Mode beating the pants off a Ferarri. While the Model 3 may be the most affordable EV that Tesla's made, its $35,000 starting price is still going to be a big ask for a lot of people around the world — even in developed nations. Tesla knows this, as CEO Elon Musk revealed that after the Model 3 will come a smaller and more affordable EV for the masses. Even so, Tesla's already received around 400,000 reservations for the Model 3.

Windows Central — Retrenched, not dead

This week Microsoft continued to improve Windows 10 with a cumulative update for those on the Preview Release Ring of the Insider program. Build 10586.240 for PC and 10586.242 for Mobile hit devices late Wednesday with a noteworthy changelog. Facebook released their official apps for Facebook and Messenger on Windows 10 for PC this week, making millions of users happy. Beta no more! The official Instagram app for Windows 10 Mobile is here and it's a direct and current port of the iOS version. While scrolling performance could be better, it's great to see feature parity for once. Is Windows Phone dead? Microsoft's current position is retrenched, but we acquired an internal email from Windows head Terry Myerson revealing that the company is very committed to Windows 10 Mobile for years to come. However, the big push for Mobile won't come until 2017 when the company refocuses its efforts around "innovation" around phones. Likewise, while a Surface phone is in the works it will have to wait until the Windows 10 Redstone 2 OS update in April 2017.

Golf Star brings new course, modes in latest update and 3rd anniversary

golfstar-online-featureWhile most people would probably say that playing golf on your mobile device can be as boring as playing it in real life, those who are really into the sport but don’t have time to play in an actual course might beg to disagree. And those who like golf probably have the Golf Star game on their smartphone or tablet. The popular app is celebrating its 3rd anniversary and as part of that treat, the latest update brings a new course and some additional modes that should make your gameplay more interesting. The new Match Play Mode makes the game a little more challenging by competing with other players instead of just playing with yourself in the Stroke Play Mode (okay, it’s not as dirty as it sounds, believe us). In this new mode, the one who has the lowest score will win the hole, and at the end of the match, of course those with the most holes won will win the game. The other new mode is the Skins Game Mode (again, not as sleazy) but this time, you have to pay an entrance fee to be able to play the game, which is held at the PGA course. But you’ll be able to buy back this entrance fee, depending on how you rank in the match. And here, the one with the lowest score of course wins the game. The update also brings a new Safari-themed course as well as new Safari explorer costumes and Bridgestone equipment you can purchase at the shop. You can update Golf Star now to enjoy these new features, or if you haven’t gotten it yet, download it from the Google Play Store for free but with in-app purchases available. SOURCE: Gamasutra

Someone got Windows 95 running on an Apple Watch, because of course they would

The tech world was a very different place in 1995. Back then, a 100MHz processor was considered powerful, the upcoming Copland operating system was going to be Apple’s next big thing, and Windows 95 was going to change everything on the PC side of things. As if to prove the point, Nick Lee of mobile app development firm Tendigi Studios hacked his Apple Watch to run Microsoft’s one-time flagship operating system.

To get the hack to work, Lee ported the Bochs x86 emulator to the Apple Watch, using a technique that lets you “patch certain files within a WatchKit app to load your own application code rather than Apple’s.” He then dropped a Windows 95 disk image into the app he created to finish the project.

According to its cofounder and CEO Snapchat is mainly “a camera company”

8 Ball Pool: Six tips and hints for beginners

Start racking up the wins and the coins with some helpful tips for 8 Ball Pool!

8 Ball Pool let's you shoot some stick with competitors around the world. It is wildly entertaining but can also gobble up a lot of time as you ride out a winning streak or try and redeem yourself after a crushing loss. All of this in the name of earning coins and cash to buy better cues and play at high-stakes tables. If you're just starting out with 8 Ball Pool, we've rounded up some basic tips for beginners to help you play better and earn more coins and cash right off the bat...er, cue!

1. Choose your tables wisely

When you're just starting out, you don't want to get hustled out of your meager coin collection by some shark! There are several tables initially available to play, but as you swipe sideways you'll notice the tables have larger entry fees. At the beginning, stick to the Downtown London Pub until you get a good handle on your pool cue, and then try moving on to Sydney. As the entry fee increases, the pots grow accordingly, so you can earn money much faster as you go to more advanced tables, but wait until your skills are ready for the high-stakes tables.

2. Open the app every day

Even if you don't have time to play a full round, it's a good idea to open the app daily. Every day you get one free spin on the Spin and Win lever. Spins can earn your coins, cash, or even mystery boxes which allow you to build better pool cues piece by piece. You can always purchase more spins (and sometimes earn additional free spins), but this is an easy way to start building up your coin and cash collection without even playing a round of pool.

3. Buy a better cue

This is a quick way to give yourself an advantage right out of the gate. By using the few coins you initially earn to upgrade your cue, you'll have more success at winning your matches. The first cues you will have access to purchase can give you slight advantages to make you shoot with more power, extend your aiming guides, improve your cue ball control, or increase the amount of time you have to shoot. The more you play, the more cues you can unlock for purchase. Initially the cues you can access are just okay, but as you log more hours and wins you can use the coins you earn in the game to buy cues with some really great benefits.

4. Use a little English

English refers to the spin you put on the cue ball when taking your shot. Sometimes you'll have a tricky shot where the ball you want to sink is dangerously close to the pocket. Instead of shooting with minimal power, tap on the cue ball button in the top right corner of the screen. From here you can cap on the spot you want to make contact with on the cue ball. Tapping near the bottom adds backspin, which is handy if the ball you're aiming for is close to the pocket. Tapping near the top adds front spin, propelling your ball forward even after it hits your target ball (handy for breaking). Tapping the sides can help the cue ball move in a desired direction after you hit your target ball, setting you up for your next shot. English can be a bit tricky to use, so give it some practice. Experiment with different contact spots on the cueball and different ratios of English to power on each shot until you become a full-on pool shark.

5. Shoot faster

There's nothing worse in 8 Ball Pool than having your shot lined up just right then suddenly your turn is up before you've made your shot! Instead of a clock to time your shots, a little green square envelopes your avatar and starts counting down your time. To line up your shots quicker, do so by tapping and dragging on the pool table surface in front of the tip of the cue (this will move the cue faster), then make more precise shot adjustments by dragging from the cue's handle until it's positioned exactly where you want.

6. Extend your aim

With the basic cue, once you line up your cue ball with the ball your are targeting, very short lines will appear to show you in what direction the target ball will roll. A simple cheat to give yourself a little better aim is to have a small piece of paper, Post-it note, or anything with a straight edge nearby. Once your shot is lined up, hold the straight edge between the aiming lines and the pocket you want to sink, to have a better idea if your aim is accurate. Just make sure to do this quickly because the clock is still ticking!

Shoot away

If you're an 8 Ball Pool beginner, hopefully these tips will help you out as you try and rack up the wins — and the coins. As you get better, you'll probably discover some handy tips or hacks to improve your performance in the game. Make sure to leave us a comment and share your personal tips for hustling the tables in 8 Ball Pool!
