PlayStation Video App Rolls out

For those of you with the Xperia Z4 Tablet or the Xperia Z3+, you just got a new app from Sony. It’s the PlayStation Video app. Well it’s not really new, but those with those two devices did not get the app pre-installed on their device when they bought it. But now it’s available and you can use it as much as you want.

The Android version of Firefox just got to version 40 this past week. This is the stable version as well, not the beta.

One of my favorite Sports apps, theScore got a nice update this week. Their Terms and Conditions were also updated. Now you can sign into the app with an account and get cross-device syncing. Which is great for keeping up with your favorite teams and players. Especially for those that have multiple devices.

Snapchat hits v9.14

Snapchat also got updated this week to version 9.14 and it brings a travel mode along with it. Basically the travel mode is to help reduce data usage. Always a great idea when there are capped data plans everywhere. There’s also a new Emoji button, which brings a ton of Emoji’s into the app. You can grab it from Google Play.

Pushbullet got updated this week as well and brought along for the ride end-to-end encryption for mirroring notifications. There’s also universal copy and paste in this update as well as SMS. It’s a pretty great update for a fantastic service, and making it more encrypted is always a great idea.
