Facebook Chat for Windows Mobile Updated to v2.3.6
The ever-growing, ever-changing nature of Facebook, the world’s most popular social networking site, means that developers of associated applications have to release updates very often. One such app, Facebook Instant Messenger for Windows Mobile, has recently been refined to encompass the most recent additions to the website.
Although the changes are fairly minor, the constant developing attention focussed by XDA member blutz upon the application and the usefulness of the program itself make it worth taking a look at. Originally designed to allow smartphone users to use the site’s instant messaging capabilities on the move, the app has since grown and now supports status updates, notification and message indicators and mobile picture and video uploads. Facebook Instant Messenger even includes a CHome (Windows Titanium/Standard layout) plugin so that you can access your news feed without even launching a separate window.
You can give the application a try by following the download link in the application thread.

One year ago, Google introduced cardboard. Amazingly enough, that was all it took to fire up the Virtual Reality scene on Android, and what began as an open design concept exploded into thousands of apps and dozens of headsets from big and small vendors alike. Now, there are more than 1 million cardboard viewers/handsets - a Google-quoted number that might not even be accurate given the ease with which headsets can be rigged through off-the-shelf equipment. This year, cardboard returned...
