Google updates Chrome for iOS


The Google Chrome browser on iOS is getting an update to make use of some of the new iOS 8 features. There is now a new Today section widget for the browser. This'll help you launch the browser with a new tab open or begin a new voice search. If you copy a URL to the clipboard, you'll also be able to launch the site on Chrome via Notification Center.

The browser also adds app extension support for 1Password and LastPass. This means you can enter secured usernames and passwords without having to leave the app. The Chrome share/action button can also be found in the menu through the three-dot icon in the upper-right corner. Google also adds some new gestures for Chrome. You can pull down on a site and release to refresh a page; pull down the page without lifting your thumb/finger and swipe left to open a new tab. If you pull down and swipe right, that'll close the current tab.

'Hearthstone' makes its way to iPhone and Android smartphones 

Blizzard finally brings its combat strategy game, Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraftto even smaller screens. It's now available on iOS Universal so it'll work on your iPhone as well as on Android tablets and phones. The smartphone version gets a redesigned interface to make it easier to play on the smaller displays. Since there are a lot of cards on the board at any given time, what Blizzard did for the phone is you can only see half of the cards at a time, and you can just tap on them to see zoomed-in version of the cards. 

The great thing is you can play the full game right from your mobile device. It even supports Naxxramas and Blackrock Mountain expansions. But these are sold separately. And it also syncs with your account on Blizzard's Battle.net system, so no matter where you play, it'll count towards your stats. However, this means you have to be online to play the game even if it's just against the AI.
