Vine for iPhone gains 3D Touch shortcuts, new video sort order options

Vine 3D Touch

Twitter-owned Vine for iOS, which lets you create and share short video loops, received a new update today that adds new shortcuts from the Home screen on the latest iPhones. Users can press the updated Vine icon firmly on the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus to jump directly into making a short Vine clip or viewing the explore section of the app.

The new Vine update also adds an option for sorting clips from other users in different orders. For example, you can now sort videos by newest, oldest, and popular. The toggle for sort order can be found on account pages next to the Posts section.

The latest update follows the release of Vine’s Apple Watch app last fall, which works on watchOS 2 and lets you watch and discover popular short videos right on the Apple Watch. Vine also added new music editing tools and expanded social sharing last year.

Vine for iPhone version 5.3 is rolling out now on the App Store.

Do Americans Care About Privacy? It Depends, Because Privacy Is Personal…

Nest There have been plenty of premature obituaries for privacy falling from the lips of tech company CEOs in recent years. Yet the idea that people have a sub-set of personal information they wish to keep outside the public sphere persists — despite all the incentives and encouragements for the proverbial user to be as naked as can be when it comes to sticking their data online.

Fitbit Takes 18% Stock Hit For Invading Apple’s Personal Smartwatch Space

fitbit-earnings So much for the Christmas bump for Fitbit shares. After seeing a huge boost following Christmas — when the app topped the App Store, indicating that the device seemed to be a popular gift — Fitbit shares tumbled more than 18% in trading today. Previously, Fitbit had gained 38% on the year after going public in 2015, and bumped an extra 5% after topping the App Store. The likely… Read More

Samsung’s ‘Rink’ Motion Controllers For Gear VR Look Pretty Great

rink A few days ago, Samsung shared a few items that they’d be showing on the floor at CES in Las Vegas. One of them, which barely caused a blip on the radar was the “rink.” It’s Samsung’s motion controllers for the Gear VR, something that is sorely needed for their mobile virtual reality experience. If you remember, Oculus just shared that their own motion… Read More

We’re Close

15751836930_315ffa1902_k All of the chatter about virtual reality shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone. Over the years, we’ve been forcing our way to get closer and closer to content of all types. For example, before we ever sat down to watch a movie, we’d hang out at a playhouse to watch a live show. The people who actually enjoyed sitting in the back were few and far between. They were probably… Read More

Pinball In Virtual Reality? Yes Please

Screen Shot 2015-12-21 at 11.26.11 AM OK, it doesn’t exist just yet, but one group called “Pinball Labs” has a new Kickstarter to bring back the feels you felt when you entered an arcade with tons of pinball games. There’s nothing like the sounds and visuals of old pinball machines (I love Addams Family) and it could become a…reality once again in VR. The Kickstarter recently went live and this video… Read More

Adobe Post debuts on iPhone, lets anyone create memorable graphics on-the-go

Adobe Post

Adobe is out today with its latest iOS-first app for mobile creatives. Adobe Post joins the free suite of other easy-to-use mobile apps for sharing that includes the Slate and Voice iPad apps. Where Voice lets you combine recorded storytelling with visuals and Slate lets anyone create magazine-quality stories from iPad, Adobe Post makes creating good-looking, sharable graphics from the iPhone as easy as picking the right image, font, and words.

The easiest way to describe Adobe Post is as a more professional meme generator app that you can take seriously. Meme generator apps let you stack text over images to send a message over social media, and Post does the same thing but with Adobe’s expertise in creativity behind it.

The app lets you use your own imagery or pick from Adobe’s offerings, apply customizable text with rich fonts over images, and even use designs created by others for inspiration.

Projects can be saved after they’re created and reused or tweaked for future use. Sharing supports Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, saving to the Camera Roll, email, messaging, and more. And iPhone 6s and 6s Plus users can take advantage of 3D Touch in the app from day one.

You don’t need to know Photoshop or Lightroom to enhance photos and layouts either, but because Adobe makes it all the same editing quality is available. Adobe says this is what people have been creating during Post’s testing:

• Social media posts
• Inspirational quotes
• Event invites
• Album covers
• Email newsletter graphics
• Announcement posters
• Blog banners
• Business graphics
• Photo captions
• Text on photos

Adobe Post for iPhone is available completely free on the App Store.

Phuc Dat Bich gives Facebook definitive proof his name is real

Phuc Dat Bich Facebook Name

I have always had a vague fear of traveling to other countries because I've been worried that "Brad Reed" will translate to "infected donkey scrotum" or something similar in another language. I was reminded of this anxiety today when I read about the plight of a Vietnamese-Australian man who had trouble getting Facebook to approve his account because his name is Phuc Dat Bich.
