There are always apps that will notify you that something is happening on multiple devices, even when you’re just using one at the time. But soon Skype will not be on that list. Skype has announced a new feature for their app they call “active endpoint” which will contain chat notifications to only the device you’re currently using, rather than every device you have that has Skype installed. So if you’re on your phone, your tablet and computer will not show notifications. From Skype’s blog: “If...

Facebook has introduced a new feature on its Android version of the app by bringing a native browser. This means that content which needs to be redirected to the device’s browser, can now be viewed directly within the app. The feature is being sent out with an OTA update to the Facebook app, so don’t be surprised if you don’t see the feature right away. Once you open a web page with this new browser, the app allows you to copy the URL or share it in a new post. If you’re not fond of Facebook’s native browsing...

Verizon was rumored to be launching a rival to the Google Play Store in order to offer a decent alternative for apps on Android devices. And just as we hear about those plans fizzling out, a new report coming from The Information suggests that the carrier is secretly building a coalition with other major carriers of the U.S. to bring this idea to fruition. Obviously, the carrier can have a bigger impact by getting other carriers on board, rather than developing this app hub on its own. It’s an early report so we don’t have...

ZTE has just unveiled its latest midrange offering known as the Nubia 5S Mini with an affordable price tag of $279.99 for the unlocked model. The smartphone will be compatible with AT&T and T-Mobile network frequencies in the U.S. should you choose to get one. It comes with LTE support right out of the box, which is quite decent for a midrange device. Packing inside the Nubia 5S Mini is a 4.7 inch 720p display, a 13-megapixel camera with a 5-megapixel sensor on the front, a quad core 1.2 GHz Snapdragon 400 SoC, 16GB of internal...

In addition to the ultraviolet sensor and a myriad of other features, the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 could also feature an ultrasonic cover meant for the visually impaired. This cover will be reportedly capable of covering short, medium or long ranges depending on the proximity to the obstacles ahead. It should be specified that this is in no way a replacement to conventional visual aids, but merely Samsung’s way of helping out the blind with their new flagship. This will be an additional accessory for the smartphone and not a feature...

A couple of months ago, we were told that Samsung and Barnes & Noble were teaming up to launch a special edition Galaxy Tab 4. Marketed as having the “best of both worlds“, the Galaxy Tab 4 Nook will have some exclusive features compared to the standard variant of the tablet. And to make the tablet more attractive to the users, B&N will be bundling in a bunch of titles and content as well. The tablet isn’t running TouchWiz, but a customized variant of the Nook UI on top of Android 4.4 KitKat which is in line...
