News-Like Social Media Updates with Social Flash

Do you enjoy watching the news? Don’t you wish your social media experience was a bit more like what you see every morning on C-SPAN? No? Maybe that’s just me? Oh well.

For those who actually do enjoy watching the news or for anyone simply looking for a novel way of viewing social media updates, XDA Forum Member Cellcrowd created Social Flash. This app aggregates your latest social media updates into periodic news flashes that can be viewed like you would view the news—except only slightly more depressing.

The features, as described by the app’s developer:

– 3 different skins: silent, classic and modern
– exclude content by specific friends from being featured in an episode
– filter item types (status update, tagged in photo, etc.)
– get notified 5 minutes before the start of an episode
– share a watched message on Facebook
– set item count and duration to influence an episode’s total duration

To get started, head over to the application thread. As you would expect, you need a Facebook account to use the app. While this may not exactly revolutionize the way you interact with those in your social circles, it’ll make it a whole lot more entertaining!

New Snapdragons: Some Context & Contrast

It hasn’t been a good year for Qualcomm so far. Every device featuring the Snapdragon 810 has had a less-than-stellar fate, be it because of overheating complaints or actual decreased sales. HTC is in a particularly worrisome situation, and Sony’s Z4 is slipping down Japanese charts just over a week after its release. The G Flex 2, Mi Note Pro and Z3+ all saw complaints as well. Even MediaTek is seemingly getting an advantage over this.   But a particularly...
