Tinder lets you judge a person’s Instagram skills before swiping right

If stellar smartphone photo skills are something you look for in a potential significant other, Tinder's redesigned profiles are ready lend a hand. The dating app now pipes in a collection of your Instagram snapshots right on that profile page -- so there's no longer a need to include that username in your profile details. Tinder only displays the last 34 photos, but if someone just can't get enough of your brunch and puppy pics, they can venture out to the app for a look at the full library. The update also shows Common Connections when you're browsing and a full list of Facebook interests, highlighting any matches. If you haven't been alerted to the new version just yet, it's available on both iOS and Android now.

hearthstone

Fans of Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft will be happy to hear that you can now play the game on your iPhone. Blizzard pushed out an update today for the popular card battler that, among other improvements, brings about support for Apple’s handset.

Blizzard says the new iPhone version features an all-new intuitive interface, handcrafted specifically for smaller mobile devices. Those devices, however, are limited to the iPhone 4s, or later models, or the fifth-generation iPod touch (iPad 2 for tablets).... Read the rest of this post here

Trusted Voice unlock is rolling out to some Android users

When the latest version of Google's Android app arrived last week, there was a hint that a new method for unlocking a device was on the way. Well, it seems the wait is over... for some. Android Police reports that a handful of folks are seeing the newfangled Trusted Voice feature in the Smart Lock settings menu. The tool allows you to access your device when it recognizes you saying "OK Google," joining Trusted Face, pattern and PIN as options for keeping that trusty handset locked down. Of course, when you select the verbal method, you'll be warned that, like the facial recognition feature, Trusted Voice is less secure than a swipe pattern or numeric PIN. If you're not seeing the option yet, sit tight (no dice on my second-gen Moto X). It appears to be rolling out slowly, so it should hit your device soon enough.

Bing’s mobile homepage for iOS and Android gets a new look

So, you like Bing but don't like it enough to download its app on your phone. Expect to see a new interface when you load the website on an Android or iOS browser, then, along with a number of new options when you swipe up the translucent card at the bottom. That includes a "Popular Now" section, which is essentially the mobile version of the desktop's news carousel. It lists trending stories around the web, some of which might be relevant to you and your location. There's also a new "Image of the day (IOTD) card" that displays info about the mobile and desktop website's daily background. Finally, you can use the "earn and explore" option to earn Bing Reward credits, which you might someday (if you're loyal and persistent) be able to redeem for gift cards.

Google app update lets Android users add nicknames for contacts

If you've got someone in your contacts list who's a real jerk, Google now lets you call them by saying just that. Thanks to an update to the Google app on Android, you can give those folks nicknames. The feature was already live for some, but it seems to be available for everyone now (just showed up for me). This means when you say "Call Jerk Face," or use something other term of endearment, your phone will dial them automatically. Upon further examination of the APK, the folks at Android Police discovered Mountain View is progressing towards the Trusted Voice feature that surfaced a few versions ago. That Smart Lock tool will seemingly allow you to unlock a device with a spoken phrase. There's also mention of something called Seamless Hotword, but for now, the name is about the only detail we've seen. If you're not sporting the latest version yet, it's available for download over at Google Play. The more adventurous can snag the APK right here.
