Facebook app beta redesign – get a more colorful interface with your social media

Facebook is developing even more in the Android world and now it is testing a colorful user interface in the Android mobile app. The app now has a more colorful look with circular colors and a flatter general appearance. It may not be a large Material design, but it is close to the stuff. Below you can see how things look now.

 

 

 

It appears though that this update is rolling out to lucky users, because there is no APK available at this moment and there is no beta you can apply to either. In case you don’t already have the Facebook app, give it a chance from the widget below, you may even be lucky enough to witness the joys of redesign.

SuperSU Beta available for testing on Lollipop – Chainfire is looking for feedback

If you’re a rooting lover and dev, you may want to try the SuperSU Beta and give Chainfire a hand in perfecting the update to Android 5.0. Lollipop is a big step towards security with its implementation of SELinux and, even if it managed to get root access on Lollipop just after release, Chainfire had a little bit more trouble in succeeding than usual.

A large number of root apps are broken on Lollipop 5.0 and most of them may be fixed by the new SuperSU build. Just in case you’re interested in the SuperSU v2.23BETA, you can give Chainfire’s official site a click. They are always accepting feedback on root apps, especially on those busted with Lollipop that probably don’t work with the beta.

SuperSU is a standard TWRP flashable ZIP that doesn’t do harm to your device, if you know how to install it safely of course. In order to enable it on Lollipop, you will need a patched CFAR kernel, an action you will luckily have to do only once. Be careful flashing!

Android L Preview fix – 14 closed bugs to be patched in the next public release

Android L Preview fixes 14 bugs that will be patched in the next public release. The biggest beta test in Android’s history is taking its course on Nexus devices and developing to become the next big OS in the history of the most popular operating system in the world.

Android L is being worked on hard and fast in order to become reality sooner rather than later. The release date is approaching fast as sources say, because it will most probably be launched at the end of 2014. Some of the biggest and most important bugs of the OS are finally being patched, including Nexus’s inability to send or receive MMS messages through Hangouts app. This bug happens only on AT&T and T Mobile devices at the moment.

Android L Fixes

 

Apart from this bug, other 13 bugs have been fixed in the last day and they will be added in the release build. Among the fixes you will find:

  • Missing emoji
  • Dialpad no. 7 replaced with S
  • Lockscreen hangs
  • Lack of notifications
  • Wi Fi Proxy setting resets after disconnect
  • Local HTML 5 audio files don’t play in Android Webview.

Hundreds of other bugs are still waiting to be fixed before Android L’s launch.

The public release date of Android’s newest OS is still a mystery, as well as its official (savory) name. Considering that Google is usually showing new developer phones around October and November, we are bound to find out more in the next couple of months. Stay tuned for more delicious news!

Chrome Beta latest update brings Number Tabs back

Chrome Beta’s latest update to number 37.0.2062.117 brings back number indicators for Open tabs. The new interface brought about in an update in July is close to Chrome’s material design where many interface elements were sliced and rearranged. The tab indicator was such a victim of the update which no longer showed the number of open tabs, but a square in case the user had more pages open.

The latest update brings the number of tabs indicator back. Just in case it’s not showing yet for you, you can click the widget below to manually update your browser.
