If you like to watch videos on Facebook with your phone or tablet, you may be soon get that same experience on a bigger screen.

See also: How to permanently delete your Facebook accountMay 20, 2016 The report comes from The Wall Street Journal, citing unnamed sources. It states that this new app is part of Facebook’s overall plan to move to a “video-first” business. The company has already been pushing its Facebook Live video streaming features for some time.

Snapseed version 2.15 adds new curves tool and more

Image
Google continues to release regular updates to its Snapseed photo editor for Android. For the first big update of 2017, the company is adding a new curves tool to version 2.15 of Snapseed, among other things. See also: Best Photo Editor Apps for Android4 weeks ago Many PC photo editors have curves tools of their own, so it’s great to see something like that make an appearance on a mobile editor like Snapseed. As you can see in the screenshot above, the tool puts a straight, diagonal line on an image. Moving that line around can change a photo’s brightness level and colors to alter its overall tone with more precision. The tool in Snapseed offers up some presets that are designed as a guide for the more advanced photo editor to use Curves.In addition, Snapseed’s Face filter now allows you to “ask” it to try harder if it has issues detecting a face (we assume if you ask nicely, you get better results). The Text tool has also been updated to let you choose where to wrap lines in all multili…

Pixel C 32GB model is no longer sold on the Google Store

Image
The Google Pixel C is still one of the best Android tablets you can buy, even after it’s been on the market for over a year. However, it looks like the option to get the cheaper 32GB version is no longer available directly from the company. The Google Store has stopped listing that model of the Pixel C, though the 64GB version is still available for $599. See also: Best Android tablets2 weeks ago While it’s possible that you can pick up the 32GB version of the Pixel C through third-party retailers, the fact that Google is no longer selling the model likely means that it has run out of its inventory and will not be making any more to sell to the public. We suspect the same will happen with the 64GB version in the not too distant future, so if you have been waiting to pick one up, now might be a good time to do so.You can also still purchase the optional keyboard for the Pixel C via the Google Store, but it will add another $149 to the price tag. The good news is that while it shipped with…

Image
Last week, we may have seen our first real glimpse at the upcoming LG G6. The leaks aren’t stopping there, though. Earlier today, reported images of an LG G6 prototype have leaked out, confirming some, but not quite all, of its previous rumors of this next flagship device. See also: LG G6: all the rumors in one place2 weeks ago The images were first posted at Droid Life, and they were clearly taken with much haste and secrecy from the photos’ creator.  They show a rather dirty looking large screen, and it’s not clear if the display has the curved corners that were shown with the previous LG G6 image leak. They do, however, show that the device has a very tiny bezel, with almost none on the sides of the screen.The image on the back side shows a development shell, but the phone’s dual cameras are indeed visible, along with what looks like its headphone jack. An image of this alleged prototype’s bottom shows a speaker and a USB Type-C connection. We do not have any independent confirmation …
