Thank goodness. Dropbox was looking was really looking bad there for a while, what with the iOS 6 theme sticking out like a sore thumb in the midst of all the clean new iOS 7 apps. Now that I’ve updated, Dropbox looks, well, perfect. I love it.
Well done developers. The subtle blue lines standing out on the sharp and clean mostly white layout looks … wonderful.
Today, Microsoft rolled out an update for Skype on iPhone and iPad, with two-way HD video calling, as well as improvements to the messenger.
The main feature for this update is the enhanced resolution video call, which is great but unfortunately is only supported by Apple devices with the new A7 chip, which is used to power the iPhone 5s, iPad Air and the iPad mini with Retina display.
Before you go deleting the update notifications, there’s still reason to update Skype. The messaging department also got much needed upgrades. In the past Skype had to be running in the background to be able to receive push notifications, now with Skype’s integration with Apple’s Notification Center it can now show message alerts even when the app is closed. Also Skype promises for a faster sync across your devices – no more old messages popping up every time you open up Skype.
Fruit Ninja has come out with yet another update adding new content — 4 new blades (comet blade, wind blade, northern lights blade, and Benjamin blade,) and a new background (koi pond). Northern lights blade? Really? I wonder if Halfbrick is starting to run out of ideas… What do you think?
