Nov 20 AT 3:49 PMDima Aryeh0 CommentsStickers have become a very popular feature in messaging apps, and Google has brought them to its keyboard. The latest update to Gboard brings four sticker packs that can be used in various apps. Also added in this update is support for 40 more languages. Unfortunately Google doesn’t provide a list, but one of the languages added is Japanese. There has always been a Japanese input app available in Android but you can now seamlessly use Gboard.
Nov 20 AT 4:13 PMDima Aryeh0 CommentsThe Android Messages app is a tad barebones compared to third party apps, but Google has been adding a lot of features that you’d find in internet-based messages apps. The latest additions bring it closer to services like iMessage and Facebook Messenger (though still using SMS). You can now directly transfer and request money from the Messages app. This is done via Google Wallet but the links will be sent by text messages.
The OnePlus 5 had a “jelly” scrolling effect that bugged a lot of users. It was due to an inverted display panel, meaning it was refreshing from bottom to top rather than the regular top to bottom. A kernel flag that flips the software on the display was a clear sign of this. The kernel source for the newly announced OnePlus 5T has already been released and there is no such flag for flipping the software orientation. This likely means that the jelly scrolling issue is a thing of the past.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
