U Mobile has often positioned themselves as the value leader when it comes to data plans. Their postpaid and prepaid products often undercut their competitors with a huge amount of data which sparks a competitive price war. For Valentine’s Day, the orange telco has tried to do something funny by poking fun at their competitors.
To spice up your prepaid internet experience, Digi is introducing its Internet Cili Padi passes. It gives you unlimited access to your favourite apps from as little as RM1 for 24 hours. The passes cover a collection of apps including entertainment, social and instant messaging.
According to instagram, most users will miss an average of 70% of their feeds. As users tend to follow more instagram accounts by the day, it can get really cluttered. As a result, it is harder to keep up with posts that are more relevant to you.
To tackle this better, Instagram in their official blog had announced that a new feed optimisation is on the way and you can see this in the coming months.
Starting July next month, Twitter will be removing its 140 character limit for its Direct Messaging feature. This allows for longer private messages, making it a more viable as an instant messaging channel. In the meantime, they are making some changes to its API where developers and 3rd party clients would need to make some adjustments to accommodate to the latest changes.
This makes it easier to report problems to brand customer support on Twitter especially to airlines and telcos. With the current 140 character limit, usually one would need to split their messages into several DMs to get the full message across. Take note that this only affects DMs and the normal tweets will still retain its character limit.
Instagram is taking social video creation to the next level with the introduction of its hyperlapse feature. It lets you create high quality time lapse video that’s stabilised, as if it was taken with a secured mount. So anyone can create awesome videos without the need of specialised equipment.
To make things easy, the Hyperlapse app does not require any account sign in and you can start recording right away. Just record several video snippets by tapping to start and tap again to stop. Once you’re done, just select the playback speed ranging from 1x to 12x.
It is available now for iOS devices and you can download Hyperlapse from Instagram over here. To give you a better idea on how it looks like, check out the official sample video after the break.
The newsfeed on Facebook is always buzzing with breaking news, funny videos and photos that could be worth sharing. Sometimes you would stumble upon interesting things which you can’t view immediately but would love to get back to it sometime later. To keep you hooked to the things that matter, Facebook is introducing its new Save feature on its mobile app as well as desktop version.
There are similar offerings out there such as Instapaper and Readability but having it natively within Facebook keeps it more seamless regardless on which device or platform you’re on.
Twitter has finally announced camera filters for its camera which adds “Instagram” style photos and basic editing options. This comes after Instagram’s photo integration on Twitter was disabled, preventing users from seeing pics directly. However it is still viewable by clicking the link.
There are 8 filters to choose from which you can preview individually or all 8 of them in a single grid. You’ll get crop and pinch to zoom editing as well to keep your main subject into focus. If you can’t decide, there’s the auto enhance wand which does the job automatically. The new version is now available for both Android and iOS devices.
