Facebook for Android Update

The new Facebook update is out and it is a great overhaul to its predecessor. 

You tell Facebook took the time and added many features that make you want to use their app. The two biggest updates come to speed and pictures. 

Speed has always been an issue with the Facebook application on Android. With the new update it is noticeably quicker. If you are having a little speed issue it could only be attributed to a slow connection. 

The update to the pictures is great. I had no issue uploading new pictures and the layout to do so is pretty simple. Viewing pictures is and adding likes is also simple. Simply click on a photo and it will pop-up into full screen. From there you will see a menu at the bottom to add a like or a comment.

Google Maps on iPhone

After Apple decided to majorly fail and take out Google Maps in-favor of their in-house map program. Guess what? 

Apple has re-released Google Maps which now features Turn-by-Turn navigation. I tested it out this morning and it seems to work very well. 

I will be honest I love my Google Nexus however if they start releasing a lot of full feature Google programs on iPhone I just might start using my iPhone a little more. 

Compatible with iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPod touch (3rd generation), iPod touch (4th generation), iPod touch (5th generation) and iPad. Requires iOS 5.1 or later. This app is optimized for iPhone 5.

Below is a link to iTunes for you to try it out yourself.

NodeBeat for putting together some tunes

If you like putting together some tunes you might want to try Nodebeat. Nodebeat is a simple tool that lets you create your own beats in a simple creative way. It is available on Android and in IOS. 

How it works is that you will have blank screen. On the left side you will have the notes that are in forms of circles such as the image shown. The main circle in the middle shoots out the beat. When it hits the other circle it produces a sound. 

Each one of the colored circles represents a different type of sound. As you drag the circles further away from the main circle it will take longer for the beat to make a sound. So all of that goes into timing.

Google Plus New Look

Google Plus has had a major overhaul to the look and feel. When companies redesign something as much as they have on Google Plus, they always run the risk of loosing individuals who simply do not like the changes. There were quite a few people who felt this way about Facebook and their new Timeline profile page. 

In the Google Plus case, the change is very dramatic. If you have had a Google Plus account for a while and use it, the changes will effect you more as you may have already been in a routine. For the people who have not used it, or not logged in awhile, you should have not problem getting used to it quickly.
