Spotless is a new iPhone app that will automatically delete troll comments on Instagram

If there is one thing that rings true on every corner of the Internet, it’s this: where there is a comments section, there will be trolls. Some people seemingly have nothing better to do than to sit around and post malicious and inflammatory comments all day, and they tend to ruin any chances of people having an intelligent conversation.

Of course, it’s not just blogs and news sites that have to worry about trolls, and Instagram users are all too familiar with that fact. But now, there may finally be an app that can rid your Instagram photo feed of any and all traces of those annoying troll comments and spam. More →

It’s not just the app store – Google Play Books is crawling with scams too

As we’ve observed countless times, there are both pluses and minuses to the way Google handles allowing apps onto Google Play. On the plus side, it’s insanely easy to get your app added.

Now Android Police has found that it’s not just the app store that’s a haven for scams — it’s Google Play Books as well. More →

Video: One way iOS 8 is much worse than even iOS 3

Over the past few months, there’s been a lot of talk among Apple fans about whether Apple’s software quality has seriously declined. Apple seems to be taking their complaints seriously and reports have indicated that the company is devoting a lot of time to making sure iOS 9 is a more stable release than iOS 7 or iOS 8 were. If you want an example of the ways iOS 8 is in some ways inferior to older versions of iOS, look no further than a recent YouTube video posted by William Van Hecke that shows how iOS 8 lags behind even iOS 3 in one crucial area.

Side-by-side pics show how Samsung is cleaning up TouchWiz one pixel at a time
