FotoSwipe gets better looking, even easier to use

Following the recent announcement of FotoSwipe here on iMore, the developers behind the iOS/Android cross-platform photo sharing service followed up with us today to say THANK YOU. A small tribe of our forum community members were actively involved in beta testing the app — we love to see developers active in our forums — so we were happy to write up the official release of the app.

FotoSwipe let us know that in the short time since it was released, these efforts have helped them pass the milestone of one million photos being shared. There are now over 175,000 users (about a 50/50 split between iOS and Android) using FotoSwipe in 175 countries and the user base is growing fast. Since the initial release, the developers have been quick to listen to user feedback and have already released an update to FotoSwipe. The basic swipe gesture has been greatly improved, and the interface has been revamped as well. More features are on the roadmap as well, including faster sharing speeds when on Wi-Fi to Wi-Fi connections and support to share videos by swiping.

Crossy Road review: I should hate it, but I love it

Of all the silly little games I've played in the last month, I keep coming back to Crossy Road. It's not the mechanics: The app plays fast and loose with the Frogger look, but it's essentially the same movement you've played in side-scrollers for years. Step forward. Jump on a moving target. Jump to another moving target. Avoid the giant train. It's not the in-app purchase pleas, which are about on par in their annoyance with every other free-to-play game.

No, Crossy Road is charming. Which is odd, for a game that regularly cries out for ratings and in-app purchases. I usually detest games like this. They annoy me and then I delete them.

How to get Voice Memos off your iPhone

I use Apple's Voice Memos app for a variety of tasks — recording notes for work; strange foley sounds that might work well for The Incomparable's radio show; or, more recently, short song sketches or covers.

When I want to get those off my iPhone, I've got a few different options: It all depends on what computer I'm using.

Instagram adding verified accounts, dropping the hammer on spam

Instagram has crossed the 300 million active monthly users line and is today adding support for verified users to the square photo social network. That 300 million threshold actually puts Instagram as having a larger monthly audience than Twitter, certainly explaining why Facebook was willing to pay $1 billion for the service.
