This customisation is only applicable for group chats though.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="567" height="425" title="Staying selectively notified" alt="Post-apairofblueticks world: 11 other messaging features you might not be aware " src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/customizzzzze.png?1416381013" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-10"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> 11) Find out the truth about where your friend is </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>All of us have been a victim of that &ldquo;On the way&rdquo; lie when the person in question is still in bed. To prevent yourself from ever getting duped again, insist that the contact shares his current location with you by tapping on the arrow icon next to the text box and then Share Location. We hear you protest that he can still manually enter the location he&rsquo;s supposedly at. Which is true, but there&rsquo;s a way of getting around it.</p> <p class="p1"><strong>How</strong>: The way the location appears is a clue to whether he sent his current location, or whether he chose to enter the location he&rsquo;s purportedly at. If it&rsquo;s the GPS-based location he&rsquo;s at, the location share will appear as a dropped pin, but if it&rsquo;s a location he had to enter, its address will appear beside the dropped pin.

To top it all off you will get a current weather conditions update every 15 minutes.</p> <p><a href="https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.accuweather.android" target="_blank">Download Accuweather here</a></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="567" height="425" title="Accuweather" alt="30 free apps for Android Accuweather" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/accuweather_0_0.jpg?1415848702" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-18"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> 19.

Making longer connections (or shapes such as squares) gives you more points, so there&rsquo;s an element of skill in setting up the board for future moves.</p> <p><a href="https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.nerdyoctopus.gamedots&amp;hl=en" target="_blank">Get it here</a></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Dots" alt="Dots" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/dots_0.jpg?1415688692" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-18"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Vector </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>A side-scrolling parkour game that owes big debts to the likes of Canabalt and Mirror&rsquo;s Edge, Vector manages to be stylish, addictive and maddeningly tough all at the same time.</p> <p>The game sees you as a free-running Neo-in-The-Matrix type character pursued over rooftops and through buildings by taser-wielding agents.

Ramping up the absurdity factor further is a fast and furious multiplayer race mode.</p> <p><strong><a href="https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.noodlecake.ssgflap&amp;hl=en_GB" target="_blank">Download Flappy Golf here</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="567" height="352" title="Flappy Golf" alt="35 best free Android games - Flappy Golf" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/best-free-android-games-flappy-golf_1.jpg?1415681427" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-31"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Punch Quest </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>This one&rsquo;s not so much an endless runner as an endless puncher.

It looks rather fantastic in the image up top.</p> <p>Android devices running Lollipop can access the new Calendar immediately, while anyone running Android 4.1 or higher will be able to get it from Google Play in the near future.

Baton is a framework based in the cloud that allows a seamless porting of apps from one Android device to the other. For instance, you could be working on a document on your phone and then, work on it on another device that has Baton installed.</p> <div class="field field-type-userreference field-field-byline"> <div class="field-label">Byline:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/sg/users/erna-mahyuni" title="View user profile.">Erna Mahyuni</a> </div> </div> </div> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-sections"><legend>News Section</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> All your apps, anywhere </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Baton is one way to take away the pain of keeping all the various apps synced, especially in an age where people have more than one device. The company behind Baton, Nextbit, is a startup by ex-Googlers who had been dropping hints about a &#39;really cool&#39; project.</p> <p>With Apple already creating a &#39;seamless&#39; experience with its OS X Yosemite with iOS 8.1, it makes sense that an Android alternative would be in the works.</p> <p>There is no need to modify apps to work on Baton - Baton itself is not so much an app but a framework for apps to work as intended. All you need to do is hold down the &#39;Recent Apps&#39; soft key and then choose the device you&#39;re moving to.</p> <p>Just pressing said button will waken the target device and you&#39;ll near-instantly see the app in the same state as you used it last. Handy for when your phone or tablet is about to die!</p> <p>One caveat though, the device you switch to needs to be associated to your CyanogenMod account and also be running Baton. Should you not have the app installed as yet, you will be prompted to download it.</p> <p>What&#39;s even more appealing: you don&#39;t need to have your apps be tweaked to work on Baton though we&#39;ll have to assume your apps play well with the CyanogenMod.</p> <p>The restore app state function is already being shipped on Japan&#39;s NTT Docomo devices and Nextbit is now in discussions with Chinese OEMs. Also, expect Baton to be seen on a OnePlus One in the very near future.</p> <p>If you want to play with it, Nextbit will be launching an invite-only betra program while the public release will only debut on the commercially distributed Cyanogen operating system i.e. the OnePlus phones.</p> <p>Nextbit&#39;s next plan?

If your driver provides you with great service, it&rsquo;s working on a reward incentive programme that rewards such drivers and penalises bad ones.</p> <p>&ldquo;We&rsquo;re also working on building a quality platform for our drivers, making sure there&rsquo;s enough jobs for them as we grow our pool.
