  • Facebook Rebuilds Android App In Native Code To Improve Speed

    A new version of Facebook’s official Android app is available today, and the company is advertising it as “faster than ever.” In its announcement, Facebook says things like looking at photos and opening the Timeline are twice as fast as they were before.

Whether it’s to manage campaigns, to get work done while on the go, or just to become personally familiar with mobile user behavior, getting to know your devices and apps is critical. But when it [...]

  • TweetLevel: A GPS For Twitter

    The dog never ate my homework. Or at least, I never tried to use that as an excuse, which is odd, considering my family actually owned a dog kennel. To this day, the memory of homework sends chills down my spine — I just wasn’t one of those people who dashed off their evening assignments with ease. [...]
