Wow missed this!
Today we’re launching Google Camera, a new app for your Android phone or tablet that makes it easy to take quick photos and videos. And being behind the lens just got more fun with new creative picture modes.

Sleek Design. The 100% viewfinder gets out of your way while capturing the maximum resolution of the scene (no dropped pixels). And the extra large capture button is easy to press so your eyes never lose sight of the subject.

Lens Blur. Emphasize the subject while blurring the background for an SLR-like shot with shallow depth-of-field (or bokeh). You can even change the subject in focus after taking the shot.

Improved Panorama. New higher resolution panoramas capture the full width and detail of a scene.

Photo Sphere. Immersive 360 degree photo spheres let you look up, down and all at up to 50 megapixels! For the first time available on non-Nexus devices.

Google Camera is now available on the Play store (, and works on all phones and tablets running Android 4.4+ KitKat. We’re just getting started, and in the months ahead we'll make Google Camera available to more devices, helping make photography easier, faster and more fun.

Are you looking forward to HTC Sense 6?
It may have now been superseded by a newer model but the company hasn’t forgotten about owners of the HTC One M7, and now there is some official confirmation about the HTC Sense 6 update release date that has been detailed. On the day of the HTC One M8 launch some information came to light...

Very surprised. Another win for Chromebooks.
Microsoft has added web apps for Office Online to the Chrome Web Store.

Are they more than glorified bookmarks at this point? No, but for those times Google Docs isn't cutting it, these quick shortcuts to Office Online can help you out.

Launchers for Microsoft Office Online apps are now available to install through the Chrome Web Store.  Three applications are available for free at present

Programmer, web designer and all round Google enthusiast.
I share a variety of content on Google+ including my personal views on the industry as well as completely random posts and things I find amusing.

My interest in technology started when I was 10, and by 13 I was already learning to create websites. Ever since then, I haven't stopped - and I've expanded into many more programming languages and technical skills.

I have a lot of experience with Wordpress, Linux (Particularly Ubuntu/Mint/Debian), Android, PHP, HTML, CSS, C#, Java and I am constantly looking to add to my skill-set.

I maintain a number of websites, my most important being Google Plus Daily. I've recently created a free Android app called 'Luneoids' in my spare time. Should you be interested in any of my services, please do not hesitate to contact me or visit my website -

My other interests are swimming, of which I regularly attend training sessions. I am very excited to see Valve porting their games to Linux and so have since become an avid follower of them and Steam for Linux. I want Half Life 3!

I look forward to seeing you on Google+.
