    Aldiko is an eBook reader application for Android with over 30 million users based in more than 200 countries worldwide.

    Medium is a subscription-based news reading app (a limited free option is also available) with a design that is especially-made for easier focusing on the topic that is being read.

    Changelog:

    • UI improvements on topic landing pages
    • Improved immersion on the post page
    • Collection header UI improvements
    • Minor bug fixes and improvements

    The new beta update with build number 3.6.6825 takes this principle to the next level by automatically hiding the status and navigation bars in every post reading page. This approach leads to a more immersive experience overall, with no distractions, so you can enjoy your reading. One of the other enhancements that came in parallel with this update is the new full-screen page for collections. Tapping on the 'Featured collections' label lands you to the 'Explore collections' page, where featured collections are laid out in a vertical two-column card layout with no extra text, dividers, and whatnot.

    Unicode 11

    WhatsApp Messenger, after the release of Unicode 11.0 back in June this year, finally joins the party of the first companies to include support for it in their proprietary software products. Version 11.0 is possibly the biggest improvement emojis have ever seen, with hundreds of new ones and many skin tone variants for those with faces. There are some interesting ones such as the raccoon, hippo, DNA and superhero/supervillain emojis. You can also check the full list of all of the additions to the Emoji 11.0.

    Search for emojis

    One weird thing that I came across with WhatsApp v2.18.349 beta is that the new emojis do not show up on my device.

    After the slow, but inevitable fall of Snapchat, the company behind is still trying to innovate and keep it alive in the social media space, but the competition from the likes of Instagram and Facebook is very very strong.

    Snap Originals

    The new Snap Originals series, launched this month, aims to challenge Instagram's IGTV platform. It lets you watch shows from selected personas - "some of the world’s greatest storytellers", and with genres such as comedy, horror, reality docu-series, and more. There are already a handful of shows released, which you can learn more about from the Snap Originals webpage.

    Snap Originals is available for all users inside the Snapchat app in the Discover screen by swiping left from the main camera UI.
