Dedicated smart home app reportedly coming to iOS 10

The list of devices that support Apple’s HomeKit platform continue to grow. And with that means varied apps needed to manage different kinds of appliances or devices. Thankfully, there might be a central hub for all of that in the future, if the rumours are to be believed. MacRumors reported they saw a review on Amazon from an Apple employee that claims a “standalone” HomeKit app will be coming in the fall just in time for the release of iOS 10. The staffer can’t say how it’d work but the implication is it’ll be a hub for all HomeKit-compatible gadgets. Of course, there’s no certainty that Apple plans to show up soon. But if this does get released, that’ll give Apple an edge in the smart home market.

Get suggestions on what to watch next on streaming sites with MightyTV

Stumped over what to watch next? iOS app MightyTV will help you pick out what to watch on the various streaming media services you subscribe to. You can tell the app what services you subscribe to or if it’s on your phone, it’ll find it on its own. Afterwards, register using your Facebook account and get started. Taking inspiration from Tinder gestures, you can swipe right to like, swipe left to dislike, swipe up to skip, tap to get more info and a preview, tap the “Watchlist” icon to add it your list, and tap the play icon to select episodes to watch now. This app is useful for bringing in one place all the things you want to catch. Unfortunately, there isn’t an Android version of the app just yet.

Other lets you send canned messages to one person

If you regularly message someone with updates like you’re heading home or stuck in traffic, the Other app for iOS will make it easier for you. It’s a bit like a launcher for messaging but you just do it for another person (perhaps your spouse). It allows you to create canned messages that you can send through the iPhones Messages app. If you use one of the newer iPhones, you can even have a 3D Touch shortcut for this on your home screen. Other also comes with a share extension, letting you send URLs to this person with just a few taps.

Twitter now classified as a ‘news’ app on the Apple App Store

Twitter is no longer a social network. Or at least it’s no longer classified as one on the Apple App Store. It’s migrated from “social networking” to “news” on the app store where it now sits on top in the top free apps chart. On the Google Play store, though, it still remains under the “social” label. The switch is seen as a reaction to the social network lagging behind competitors like Facebook in the social networking category. This’ll perhaps bring attention to the app more and it highlights Twitter’s differentiator from its rivals with its real-time breaking news updates. Twitter’s still suffering from sluggish user growth so any approach to get more eyeballs and users on its platform is welcome.

The change, though, also highlights Apple’s issues with making apps more discoverable. App developers are said to be frustrated with the tech giant and discoverability issues on the platform. Even with the use of search, it’ll take a while to find relevant apps. Apple’s been making changes for this but it still has more work to do in this respect.

Snapchat on iOS lets you swap faces with any photo in your camera roll

Snapchat’s new update for its iOS apps brings a nifty new feature we’ll probably see people playing around with a lot. The app will let you face swap with any photo in your camera roll. When you select the face swap button in the masking features, you’ll see a second face swap button appear next to the original. This purple button has a little camera icon to let you swap with a photo from your camera roll.

The latest update also brings with it the ability to replay a snap one more time for free. Snapchat used to charge $0.99 for this feature. But they seem to have found a different way to make a quick buck. You can’t purchase any more extra replays from the app either. No word yet when the new feature will make its way to Android but we should hear from them soon.
