Google Adds Haptic Feedback Support to ‎Gboard, its Keyboard App for iOS

Google has today released an update to Gboard — the Google keyboard app for iOS — that introduces haptic feedback support on iOS devices. Gboard Version 1.4 that is now available for download on the App Store comes along with an option to enable haptic feedback on iPhones, as long as you’ve got an iPhone 7 or newer device.

Feel your keys! You can now enable haptic feedback on key press by going to settings.

It’s weird to think that Apple’s own system keyboard doesn’t offer this feature, but I’ve been trying the option out for about 30 minutes now and I’m not sure if I like it that much. It sure is nice to have, but I don’t think I’ll get used to this, and that tiny space bar on Gboard is a major dealbreaker for me.


The Unarchiver 4.1 Adds Support for Dark Mode on macOS Mojave

The Unarchiver — easily the best unzipping tool for macOS — has been updated to Version 4.1 today that brings along support for the Dark Mode in macOS Mojave. The Unarchiver offers support for one of the widest collection of archives. The app was acquired by MacPaw, Inc last year, who’ve given it a beautiful icon, a UI facelift, and a bunch of new features since the acquisition.

Today’s update also brings along faster extraction capabilities, direct extraction support for warc.gz archives, some fixes for 7-zip archives, and a whole lot of other fixes.

Google Releases Colorful New Themes for Chrome

Google has apparently released a dozen new themes for Google Chrome, available via the Chrome Store. Unlike many of the third-party themes for Chrome, these come directly from the maker. Which makes me wonder why most of the themes in this collection are simple shades after shades of color, while some are simply ridiculous, like this High Contrast Colorful one here. I’m still glad Google chose to release them because they’ve brought me my favorite one from this lot, which is this stunning “Just Black” theme here.

‎Pixelmator for iOS Adds Support for the New iPad Pro and Apple Pencil

The Pixelmator Team has just released version 2.4.4 of Pixelmator for iOS on the App Store. This release introduces support for the new iPad Pro and Apple Pencil in the app, including support for the double-tap gesture on the new Apple Pencil and Pixelmator will even remember your global settings for the double-tap wherever possible. I’m a little surprised that for an app so popular and often featured by Apple, it took them so long to add support for the new iOS devices.

Get Pixelmator for just $4.99 on the App Store.
