Who knew Snapchat would enter the mobile payments competition?! Google Keep is also dominating with sharing features. Meanwhile, the Moto X is seeing a huge price cut.
Today Snapchat is entering a whole new market – mobile payments. The messaging service has announced a new feature for sending money to your friends. They cal it Snapcash, and it is powered by popular mobile payments company Square.
Once you set up your debit card information, you can easily send money to your friends by accessing the messaging section and typing in the dollar sign ($) along with the quantity you want to send. It’s only available for USA Snapchat users who are 18 and have a debit card.
Opinion: This seems a bit odd, to say the least. I also wonder how it will go if you are simply taking toy our friend about money. If I tell a friend “My car costed $15,000”, will it send them that money?
Sharing your Google Keep notes and lists used to mean having to use the same Google account. That messy set-up is no longer necessary. The Search Giant has added sharing capabilities to Google Keep.
This means users can now simply share their to-do lists and grocery shopping lists after creating them. Groups can then collaborate and get things done together without a single issue. Neat, right?
Opinion: I, for one, am glad to see this new feature showing up. It will be very helpful for work, as well as personal tasks.
Moto X Developer Edition (2013) now available for only $229!
Motorola’s original Moto X Developer Edition was a stunning device when it first launched, and continues to be a very capable phone. Interested in the older-generation Moto X? You can now get it for a mere $229 from eBay right now.
Opinion: That is over a 50% discount over the $500 retail pricing, so don’t let this chance slip out. There’s a limited quantity and almost 900 units have been sold, so hurry up if you want to cash in on this deal.
