eBooks and eBook readers have made reading more accessible for tons of people and put many classic masterworks back into the mainstream. This is due to the fact that the oldest titles in the public domain can be downloaded with no problems of any kind.

The race to become the best chat app means that new features are popping up everywhere on most of the apps aspiring to the throne. And the current leader isn’t resting on its laurels. WhatsApp gets substantive updates rather slower than everybody else, but bit by bit it’s becoming ever more complete.

SEGA has spent years trying to revitalize some of its hit brands on Android – to uneven success. But its latest move definitely does make a lot of sense: SEGA Forever is an initiative from the company to re-release some of its most legendary games on Android – and all for free and with no limits. The first batch of games is out already, and apparently we can expect more of them every month.

As it has been doing for a good while now, Instagram keeps adding small improvements to make itself as complete as possible. This time it’s made a move to combine two of the most significant new features from its latest rounds of updates: now you can share Live broadcasts over your Instagram Stories.

Among the big changes that stand out are a complete revamp of the gyms and a new cooperative game mode.

There appears to be no end in sight to the production of Android games set in the Star Wars universe. Just a bit more than a month ago we got the fun Star Wars: Puzzle Droids, and now it’s the new Star Wars: Rivals, a third-person action game that puts you in the skin of the most popular Star Wars characters from both the original trilogy and the later releases. Its main appeal, besides that it lets you relive iconic battles, is the possibility to participate in online PvP battles.
