Facebook for Android
Keep in touch with your Facebook contacts using Facebook for Android

One of the most common uses for smartphones – besides making phone calls – is to access the internet, and social networks in particular. By far the most popular social network is Facebook, and the official Android app makes it even easier to access and interact with the services than the mobile version of the web site.

As you would expect, the app makes it possible to post status updates and messages as well as conducting chats with your friends. The current version of the app is a much sleaker affair than in the past, and it’s easier than ever to watch video, read messages and interact with others.

The very latest version of the app includes support for a swipe-to-update gesture which makes it faster than ever to view the latest posts. Support for the newer privacy controls means that you can now configure location and visibility options for individual posts that you make. A redesigned news feed can also be used to check into places when you are out and about.

Another new gesture allows for easier navigation between images in galleries; rather than having to tap arrows to move from one image to another, you can simply swipe left and right. The Android version of the app is still not as complete as the iPhone version, but it’s getting there.

Facebook for Android 66.0 brings these changes:

- Improvements for reliability and speed

Verdict:

Much more user-friendly than the most Facebook web site, the Android app is a must-have for all social network users.

Spektrel Art 1.0.0

Free Full Commercial Software

Spektrel Art is a stand-alone program and Photoshop plugin which transforms digital photos into "magical art that glimmers and gleams with intersecting lines of tapered light".

What does that mean? Essentially it applies a configurable mix of effects, enhancing edges, smoothing backgrounds and emphasizing colours. Take a look at the thumbnail for one example, and the official product page has more.

Spektral Art works much like any similar tool. Open an image, click one of the thumbnails to apply a particular preset, or click a few buttons and drag some sliders to fine-tune the results.

There's surprising scope for variation, too. For example, just switching from the "Light" to "Dark" theme can transform a bright and friendly image into something dark and sinister, at least in some cases (results vary depending on the source image).

Please note, the demo version doesn't allow images to be saved.

SPECIAL OFFER: as we write, the developer is offering Spektral Art for free. The offer expires August 29th. Please note that you must provide your name, address and phone number to receive your free license.
