How to edit your comments on Facebook

Facebook recently rolled out an update to its commenting system. Now, instead of pressing Comment, you simply press the Enter key to save a comment. More excitingly, however, Facebook silently rolled out another new feature at the same time: you can now edit comments! If you comment on a friend's status update, link or photo, you can now press the 'X' in the top right corner to edit it. Your...

Picplz adds collections and border effects

Picplz, the popular photo sharing app for Android and iOS, has introduced two more handy features: photo collections and border effects. Collections are easy to compile -- just tap a button on the Picplz web viewer or your mobile app (updates for iOS and Android will appear shortly). The new border effects give you yet another fun way to jazz up your photos prior to sharing them. They can be...

Epistle is a Dropbox-syncing, minimalistic text editor for Android

I've got a serious text editor fetish, and as such, it extends across devices. I've been on the lookout for a simple text editor for Android for a while now. There's complex software, with tagging support, SimpleNote sync and lots of other bells and whistles, and at the other end of the range there are really simple editors with no sync functionality at all. And then I found Epistle. I've just...

Google Docs gets mobile editing support on Android 2.2 and iOS

Google has just announced that it has started rolling out mobile editing support for Google Docs. The roll-out will take a few days and when it reaches you, you'll be able to edit documents in Google Docs by simply pointing your mobile browser to docs.google.com and clicking on Edit while viewing the document you wish to make changes to. This feature will only be accessible for owners of...

Camtasia 7.1 giveaway and video review

Personally, I think TechSmith's Camtasia is the best screencast recording and editing suite available for Windows today. It's an extremely capable application, and one of its only potential drawbacks is the price – at $300, this is not a cheap piece of software. This is where the giveaway comes in! TechSmith recently released Camtasia version 7.1, with several interesting new features....

Professional-grade Lightworks Open Source video editor to be released November 29th

EditShare -- the company who acquired non-linear editing superapp Lightworks back in 2009 -- announced a while ago that they would be releasing Lightworks as open source software. That's pretty sweet, considering Lightworks has won both Academy and Emmy awards. If you've been waiting patiently to get your hands on a download, your wait is almost at an end. According to a letter sent from...

Google updates Picnik with a bunch of ghoulish, Halloween effects, stickers and fonts

Picnik, a Web-based photo manipulation service that Google acquired back in March, has just received a bunch of new Halloweenesque effects, stickers, fonts. After uploading a photo, you can now add such fantastic effects as 'vampire eyes', 'draculan dermis', fangs or 'zombify 2.0'. As you can see above, you can create some pretty scary results! Admittedly my face doesn't require much help to...

Textarea Cache text - and life - saving Firefox add-on now supports Firefox 4

Textarea Cache is a longtime Download Squad favorite. In fact, it has been featured in our 2009 Firefox add-on pack, and I've been using it for ages. It's a very simple add-on that constantly saves the contents of whatever text area you're writing in. Then, if (or rather when) Firefox crashes, you still have your text. If you only compose Gmail messages, it may not be very handy (because Gmail...

Google Docs editing coming soon to iPad, Android devices

Sometimes, when companies blog about a big new feature, there's a juicy little tidbit of news just thrown in somewhere. That's the case with today's Google Apps two-factor authentication announcement from Google. Tucked in amongst the notes was an aside about Google Docs, and it's a zinger. As spotted by out pal Brad over at Mobiputing, Google Docs users with an Android device or iPad will soon...

Google Docs begins integrating Etherpad's collaboration kung fu

Google's acquisition of Etherpad came at a time when Wave was still being talked about by the cool kids. Its collaboration chops seemed well-suited to Wave's real-time environment. As you well know, Wave ended up being a bit of a wash-out -- but it turns out Etherpad was slated for integration elsewhere. That "elsewhere?" Google Docs, of course! As of today, Docs will show you which blocks of...

Editor helps you out where spell check fails, and it now supports Word

I first found (and bought) Editor back when I was editing English text for Gramlee. It's a unique, and pretty amazing, piece of software; its work starts where your spell checker stops. It catches all sorts of potential grammar and usage problems, and its alerts are informative enough for you to learn and make your own judgement call on whether or not you wish to change your text. Editor is made...

IrfanView 4.27 adds Command-line Fu, batch convert to PDF, much more!

I love IrfanView this no-frills image viewer/editor is one of the first applications I install on a new computer. It seems I'm not the only DownloadSquad writer who admires this program, as we've previously featured the 4.10 release and the 4.20 release. At its core, IrfanView is a nimble, powerful and very fast image viewer. But over time, the developer seems to have added more and more features...

If you code HTML, Zen Coding will change your life

If you write HTML for a living, and you don't know Zen Coding yet, you are missing out big time. This is basically the coolest thing I've seen all week. I have been using it for a few days now; at first it seemed kind of gimmicky and I wasn't sure I could grasp the syntax, but today I really got to explore it, and woah is it awesome. Okay, I'll stop tripping over myself with excitement over here...

Easily trim your Mp3s online with CutMp3.net

There's a lot of desktop software that will allow you to cut an mp3 down to a single short clip, or trim the beginning and end of a recording, but there may be times when such software doesn't work for you. Maybe you're on someone else's computer. Maybe you don't need all of the features that a versatile app like Audacity has to offer. That's where CutMp3.net comes in. It's a simple, Web-based...

Paper Rater analyzes your writing surprisngly well

As Paper Rater so eloquently states in HUGE type, it's a free grammar and spelling check, with plagiarism detection thrown in for good measure. It's actually an interesting study in graphic design: Look at that screenshot. Would you rely on such a website for editing an important academic paper, a newspaper article, or any other important text? At first glance, I sure wouldn't. That "Use now...
