    As you have probably noticed, every now and then we are coming up with monthly sets of exciting feature releases combined with leaks for selected Android apps. Our latest contender is Instagram, and all courtesy of @wongmjane, here are some changes and additions that we may start seeing soon.

    • Ability to revert to older usernames

    If someone changes his/her username, their old one will not be usable by any other account until 14 days pass, so you can revert if you have to. This should put an end to the username grabber bots sniffing around the web, as noted by @wongmjane.

    • New camera UI

    This renewed camera interface includes a reduction of the number of main camera modes available.

    Android, being the most popular mobile operating system today, has millions of application that any person can download from the Play Store. Having such a huge variety of installable software on loads of different devices from dozens of manufacturers has its downsides, perhaps, like being more susceptible to crashes due to not being thoroughly tested on every single model that is available. Hardware differences aside, OEM-specific software implementations on top of the AOSP (Android Open Source Project) code may sometimes be the culprit because of manufacturers not strictly following Google's guidelines.

    With that said, in today's report we are focusing on exactly what happens behind the scenes when an app crash occurs and the ways that you can help to get bugs flushed down the drain. Here is a short set of questions and answers explaining some of the key things you should be familiar with.

    Microsoft's SwiftKey keyboard amazes everyone with its advanced prediction system and broad feature set. Its Android counterpart is available as separate stable and beta apps on the Google Play Store, with the former appealing more so to regular users, while the latter is meant especially for us geeks. Speaking of betas, the latest one for SwiftKey is up and adds a much more enhanced way of resizing the keyboard window, but before going into too much detail, first, let's go through the release notes posted for version 7.2.6.24 (What a long build number, huh?)

    Changelog:

    • We are introducing a new way to resize your SwiftKey Keyboard. Simply drag the boundary boxes to resize and move your SwiftKey Keyboard just how you want it. Try it out now from your Toolbar > Settings > Size.
