iOS bug causes iPhones to crash and reboot

A bug surrounding iOS and Messages has emerged that causes the app to continuously crash when a certain text is received. If the text is received while the phone is on the lock screen, it also causes your iPhone to reboot without any notice or explanation.

If you'd like to test your device, I believe the following string will work. Please don't crash people's phones.

effective.

I was looking into using  Confluence and thus replacing Google Drive, but unfortunately you do not have an Android app, which completely destroys our work flow for developing Android apps. Will definitely consider signing up for Confluence as soon as you guys release an Android app. It's time to start going more mobile guys. This isn't pre-2010 any longer...

Interesting change. Waiting for the update.
 
Aaaand the drawer is gone from the YouTube app.

I like this version of the app much more. The navigation is easy and accessible. I'm  interested to see how the UI is adapted for larger screens (my N9 doesn't have a new YouTube update yet).

I'd just really like to see manual refresh for the subscriptions page (pull-to-refresh would work perfectly here.. new items appear on start of the list).

But the core what makes me happy about this is the clear indication that you don't have to have a drawer in every app for it to be an Android app!
Drawer is not going to go anywhere as a pattern (although I kind of think it would get a better replacement once we just figure out what that replacement would be). But as with every other pattern. If you don't need it, don't use it! Drawer still has it uses!

Well this is interesting. Wow, who would've thought Samsung would bring something new to the table?
 
Samsung reveals the brand new Gear SDK, with rotating bezel!

Tizen may not be the most popular platform around these parts, but that's a pretty damn interesting approach to smartwatches. The rotating bezel can be used to navigate the watch’s Tizen-based UI. This is basically Samsung’s answer to the Apple Watch’s Digital Crown. This secondary form of input can be used for app specific actions, zooming in and out of images, to change the volume, or simply to navigate between screens. Initially it sounded odd, but now we’re getting a better picture of how useful this feature could be when used properly.
New details about Samsung's upcoming round smartwatch codenamed Project Orbis have been revealed thanks to their newly released developer SDK. Watch could launch as the Gear A with rotating bezel.

Pretty cool
Derek Ross originally shared to Google I/O 2015:
 
What are Google Notifications? Is a major update underway?

I just noticed this Google+ update. Look at my notifications. Why would Google+ notifications need to let me know the notifications came from Google+? Do you see that new icon? That seems kind of silly and redundant. You wouldn't need to include an indicator icon if all notifications came from Google+, the service that you're using.

The icon had to have been added for a reason, right?

Could "The Stream" turn into a social stream aggregator from all of your social networks? Showing notifications and posts from Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google+, LinkedIn, etc, if you wanted? What other type of Google notifications could go there? Blog or news posts? Google Now notifications? Hangouts notifications? Who knows? Either way, something is happening here.

UPDATE: The notifications header now say Google Notifications instead of Google+ notifications. I'm betting this now becomes a Google notifications aggregator, beyond just Google+. The notifications area will give us notifications from various Google services such as Google Now, Photos, Drive, Keep, Calendar, Inbox/Gmail, Hangouts, you name it, if it's a Google product, the notifications are now unified - or at least we can finally hope.

Glad to hear they're pushing the update from the beta channel.

LE:
Really nice update +HipChat , good job with the redesign. Couple of things though. First off, multi-accout support should be a must feature in your future updates. As some of your users are part of multiple teams, they currently cannot use your app. They would be forced to use the release version for one account and the Beta version of the app for their second account. And if they have 3 or more accounts, guess they're out of luck. I know it's a pain in the ass to support multiple accounts in any app, especially yours, but it should be done.

I also couldn't find a way to create new rooms inside the app. I had to sign in to the web app in order to achieve this. Kinda awkward. Speaking of rooms, a nice way to quickly change between rooms as your SlidingPaneLayout used to work back in the Holo days would be nice and useful.

And speaking of apps in general, you know what would be really nice and useful to have? An official Jira Android app, +Atlassian. That would be awesome.

Google's Play Music for desktop updated with big Material Design makeover. 

#Android #Google #PlayMusic
Google is rolling out a big UI update to Play Music for desktop users today, bringing a ton of Material Design tweaks inside. Once your UI gets updated, you will see a very well laid out interface, complete with animated transitions and slide out navigation bar on the lefthand side.

Overall great experience. The teachers are pretty good and they will see the best in you if you actually have something to show. I would rate it probably somewhere in the top 10 high schools in Bucharest.
