  • Foursquare adds menu search to dining spots, eases quest for ramen and dumplings

    Foursquare adds menu search to checkin spots, eases quest for ramen and dumplings

    Following its recent auto-notification announcement, Foursquare is serving up yet another feature to make finding a spot to nosh even easier while you’re out and about. With its latest update, the social check-in software has added menu search. That’s right, all you have to do is type in a dish, select your current locale and boom: the app dishes out a list of restaurants where that item you’re crazing is on the menu. This works for dietary restrictions too for those who prefer to stick to veggies or follow the gluten-free lifestyle. No word on when you’ll be able to order directly from the app, so stay tuned.

  • Following outcry, Microsoft gives developers early access to finished Windows 8.1 builds

    Windows 8.1

    When Microsoft delivered Windows 8.1 to manufacturers, some developers were more annoyed than overjoyed — unlike in years past, they weren’t getting advance copies to help optimize their apps. The company has heard their complaints, however, and it’s now offering the Release To Manufacturing builds of Windows 8.1, 8.1 Professional and Windows Server 2012 R2 to both MSDN and TechNet members. The enterprise edition of Windows 8.1 will be available later in September, Microsoft says. Regular users will still have to wait until the mid-October launch to get their turn, but the early developer release should lead to a healthier stock of Windows 8.1-ready apps in the weeks ahead.

  • Google Glass update adds 'vignettes,' sound search and more

    Google Glass update adds 'vignettes,' sound search and more

    Glass still isn’t quite ready for the consumer, but Google’s wearable platform just keeps getting better and more powerful thanks to frequent software updates. Today’s version bump brings YouTube to your search results and also grants access to those with Google Apps accounts. It also brings the Shazam-like Sound Search from Android to your head-mounted display. Most interesting though, is Vignettes, which allows you to lay your current Glass display over a photo to produce an image like the one you see above. Think of it like a screenshot tool for your real, very nerdy life. One can only imagine that eventually Vignettes will get a video mode, but for now its still photos only. If you’re one of the lucky Explorers you can download the update now. The rest of you will have to live vicariously through the photos at the source.

  • Snapchat Micro will bring disappearing messages to Samsung's Galaxy Gear


    There seems little doubt that much of the Galaxy Gear’s success or failure will hinge on the selection of apps that arrive on smartwatch. Samsung is making a strong push for third-party software (even in the face of limited device storage), courting a big cross section of developers at places like Path and eBay for its wearable. Popular messaging app Snapchat will also be hitting the device in the form of Snapchat Micro. As you’d expect, the app harnesses the Gear’s 1.9-megapixel camera to send self-destructing images. The company’s founder told Techcrunch, “Our team is constantly looking at ways to reduce the time between our experience of a moment and our ability to share it.” Walking around with a camera on your wrist is certainly one way to go about it.
