[NSFL] Figure 1, An Instagram For Doctors, Is Disgusting & Fascinating

[NSFL] Figure 1, An Instagram For Doctors, Is Disgusting & Fascinating

I love photography, and hence I love Instagram. It’s probably the most used app on my phone after Chrome and Facebook Messenger, and I love flicking through photos of breakfast, awesome cars, or street photography. It’s a dash of creativity in a busy university student’s life. What it isn’t, however, is edgy. That’s where Figure 1 comes in.

It’s an Instagram for doctors, but not one to share awesome photos of sad looking hospital wards or joyous moments between patients and their families. It’s an app that doctors upload photos of weird or ongoing cases to so they or others can compare what they’re looking at with what the consensus might be elsewhere. If you aren’t a doctor though it’s a very good source of WTF for the day.

Feeling brave? Check it out here and I seriously recommend checking out this write up on The Verge. I, personally, shall uninstall the app and never think about it again. There are a couple of screenshots available  after the break, but only check them out if you haven’t eaten recently.

Google Now Launcher available for nearly any Android device

Google Now Launcher available for nearly any Android device

Ok Google Everywhere

Earlier today Google officially updated the Google Now Launcher to be used on any device running Android 4.1 and up (ie. nearly 75% of all Android phones currently in use).   This, Android fans, is huge.

For the uninitiated, Google Now Launcher brings Google Now front and centre and makes it your homescreen.  While the traditional app/widget paradigm persists, Google Now is just one swipe away to the right and can be triggered with the “OK Google” voice command from the homescreen (and anywhere else).

If you want more Googly goodness on your phones hit up this Play Store link!

[PREVIEW] Google Currents, or: How I learnt to ditch every other news reader

 

Yesterday evening Google announced a bit of a game changer.  For ages now iOS has had Flipboard, an awesome app that is, essentially, an RSS reader with a single distinguishing feature:  it’s like you’re reading a magazine.  Alas, that’s how Google’s Currents differs from all those other RSS readers on Android.  Firstly, it’s Google’s baby so support will come fast and hard.  Secondly it has a number of high profile launch partners that will provide content optimised for this new platform.  Thirdly, it works with any RSS out there.  You can, for instance, follow Techno-Speak on Currents.  Just saying, you know?  Read on past the break for our impressions.
