If you rock a 360–degree camera device, you’ll be happy to learn that Periscope now offers support for it through the Android application, meaning your viewers can get a whole new look at what you’re streaming. (more…)
I hate to pull out the, “If you aren’t doing this, you are doing it wrong,” thing, but seriously app developers and mega-tech companies, if your app doesn’t have a dark or night mode, you are doing this sh*t so wrong.
