Viber, a fierce rival to Skype in the world of VoIP, has just added a neat video calling feature to its mobile apps’ repertoires, and not before time. Having remained a voice calling and instant-messaging service for a number of years on mobile, it’s now adding what most would see as a fairly necessary, if not critical feature, and with both the iOS and Android apps having been updated and rolled out simultaneously, we’ve got the details and download links right here.

Facebook’s decision to decouple its Messenger app from Facebook proper has caused much upset amongst those that rely on the feature in order to keep in touch with people. We found that our use of Facebook Messenger increased once the decoupling took place, but it seems we’re in the minority.

Dong Nguyen, of Flappy Bird fame, returned to prominence last week with the release of Swing Copters, and having infuriated mobile users far and wide the first time around, the follow-up is even more challenging on whole new level. So much so, in fact, that the lone developer has released a swift update of iOS and Android which, thankfully, makes it a bit less cumbersome to play. More details and download link can be found right after the jump.

Dong Nguyen, whose .GEARS Studio developed the famed Flappy Bird title for iOS and Android, has come through with a follow-up title that, on first play, seems every bit as tedious and frustrating as Nguyen’s smash-hit title. Rolling out for iOS and Android, Swing Copters is not so much tricky as infuriating, and given that Nguyen claimed to have pulled Flappy Bird due to the stress it was causing gamers, this new title looks set to raise heart and blood pressure levels all over again.

Given the vast tool set brought to our fingertips by the modern-day smartphone, we often completely overlook the bread-and-butter features such as the ability to make calls and sending SMS messages. But while we have an abundance of utilities and services allowing us to stay connected with each other in ways we could only have dreamt about a few years ago, most of us still commonly engage in the same voice calls we were making long before the likes of Facebook and Skype took over our lives. As such, apps extending the basic phone feature remain abundant, and the app we’re featuring here today not only offers business-level call recording, but arrives complete with a number of great features.

You’d have to have been living in a cave earlier this year to miss the whole Flappy Bird saga. Becoming hugely popular on the App Store and Play Store almost overnight, Flappy Bird raked in huge sums of money for its creator Dong Nguyen on an apparently daily basis. Unfortunately that wasn’t enough to keep him happy though, and his newfound fame – or should that be infamy – caused him to pull the game and almost disappear.

There are many ways to evaluate a Wi-Fi network. You can either go for the hands-on visual approach by looking at the Wi-Fi signal bars, or just run a regular speed test and see the general performance of a network. But a regular speed test doesn’t tell the complete story as it’s usually done on server side to check Internet speed, not local wireless network’s speed. This is where a handy app for iPhone and Android comes in.

The fact that, some time ago, Facebook decided to separate the Messenger segment of its service into a standalone mobile app wasn’t too much of an issue when it initially went down. After all, users could still easily continue to communicate using the official app, and the Facebook Messenger app was a convenient service dedicated to IM only. However, as users have noticed over the past couple of months, Facebook for iOS and Android is now a message-free zone, which, aside from being inconvenient, seems a tad unnecessary. Luckily, there’s a way to circumvent the limitation, and whether you’re rocking Facebook Messenger for Apple’s iOS or Google’s Android platform, you’ll find a fairly simple workaround below.

Wi-Fi networks are literally everywhere. From our homes, to our offices, and heck even in our laundry outlets, we have Wi-Fi networks littered across like a pack of bees going crazy in a flower field. But, while having Wi-Fi around us is all good, but what great does it do when there’s someone hogging all the network’s bandwidth? Don’t you wish you could find that very same guy on the network using a simple app, so you can find a better network for yourself? Of course you can, and it’s as easy as downloading a simple Android app.

Google’s Android Wear initiative may be in the midst of what could be called a false start, but that problem maybe alleviated once the big software companies start to integrate wearable support into their apps. Two giants of the messaging world have done just that over the last couple of days, with both Facebook and WhatsApp issuing updates to their Android apps that give Android Wear, err, wearers a little taste of the future.

Apart from the myriad of changes that accompanied Android KitKat, one of its highlighting feature was the Google Now Launcher, which had a unique look and feel from all app launchers we’ve seen from Google to date. Granted, it’s a complete stock offering, and its bare minimum features assure that everything is there when needed without being hungry on resources. But why should only KitKat users cherish all the benefits of it? Well that’s about to change, as from today, Google’s app launcher is now compatible with devices running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and up, bringing its support to millions of devices worldwide.

Even though we presumed that all of the avenues for a popular IM app had already been explored, the guys at Snapchat had other ideas, and over the past couple of years, particularly among the younger, college-age generations, it has continued to thrive. With Facebook having already made the purchase of Instagram and, more recently, WhatsApp, it’s clear that Mark Zuckerberg and his social company wants to flex its considerable clout in this industry and go head-to-head with a new app by the name of Bolt.
