With iOS 8, Apple, for the first time, allowed third-party keyboards on its platform that worked system-wide, not just within specific apps. In the new days of this freedom, we saw almost all major players from the Android ecosystem pop up on the iTunes App Store as well, and then (naturally) the trend dwindled down. Today, however, we see somewhat of a revival, with Disney releasing its ‘Disney Gif’ custom keyboard for iPhone and iPad, which allows sharing of Disney and Pixar themed GIFs directly from the keyboard into the app of your choice.

Apple took on the big names in the music streaming space when it announced Apple Music at WWDC this year. However, that doesn’t mean that Apple’s competitors in this space will just sit and not do anything. Today, the Mountain View company announced its free music streaming tier to the already-rich Google Play Music, which will basically serve as a curated, ad-supported radio station selection for non-subscribers (read: free users) of the search giant’s music offering. The new free tier of Google Play Music is all set to take on Apple’s iTunes Radio service, and the upcoming Beats 1 radio station, which is going to be a part of Apple Music.

At Google I/O this past week, the search giant made it abundantly clear that it’s serious about pushing ahead with fingerprint sensor technology, so much so that Android M – the next iteration of Google’s open-source smartphone and tablet operating system – will carry a native fingerprint API that manufacturers can make use of for better integration. To drive the point home, the company showcased a video that exhibits how fingerprint-enabled devices will work on Android M, once the feature is fully implemented. What we found interesting however, was the fact that amid the video, the lady pulls out what appears to be a Nexus 5 carrying a fingerprint sensor.

A week ago, we told you that Apple’s latest update to the Watch OS, which pushed the version number to 1.0.1, displayed erratic behavior with respect to heart rate monitoring.

At Google I/O 2015, the Mountain View search giant introduced Android Pay – a new feature for Android smartphones that allows you to make payments right from your device, using a combination of Google’s integration with a number of stores, payment processors, and your existing credit/debit cards etc. Sounds familiar? That’s because it is. Allow me to clarify this from the very beginning (and my displeasure with this fact): Android Pay is awfully similar to Apple Pay, and not just by name but in functionality as well. Let’s take a quick look at all that’s on offer.

A couple of months ago, Twitter attempted to change the game once more with the launch of Periscope for iOS – an app that allows users to stream live video to their followers. At that time, people just weren’t sure how long it would take for the app to reach Android, and whether it would follow a quick launch. In case you were among those wondering, Tuesday saw Periscope coming to Android, exactly two months after the original launch for the iPhone.

When it comes to technology, Apple is arguably the gold standard, and when something good comes out of the company, it’s usually always a good thing. In the same spirit, it appears that the Cupertino tech firm is looking is upgrading the non-Retina 27-inch iMac orders for some customers to the recently-announced 5K iMac automatically and without any cost – giving these buyers a device that costs $1,999 in retail.

On the face of this planet, if there’s one service that’s truly popular after Facebook, that’s Twitter. The microblogging platform has grown into so much more than where it started from, similar to how the largest social network – Facebook – evolved. Twitter has become the number one source for keeping abreast with people from almost all walks of life, especially celebrities. Now, who is a bigger celebrity than the POTUS – President Of The United States – himself? It appears that six years in the office, President Barack Obama finally has his own Twitter account which he will handle directly, and he sent his first tweet using an iPhone, of all devices.
