Google Bulks Up Cardboard for Developers
Google is working very hard to lure developers into experiencing its virtual reality flagship product, Cardboard.
Google Cardboard is now being offered with updated software development kits (SDKs) and new documentation. Also, the Cardboard app will now be available in 39 languages. As per Brandon Wuest, Senior Software Engineer at Google, the Cardboard SDKs for Android and Unity have been tweaked to address the top concerns of developers like drift correction and performance. Additionally, “This update includes a major overhaul of the sensor fusion algorithms that integrate the signals from the gyroscope and accelerometer. These improvements substantially decrease drift, especially on phones with lower-quality sensors.”

Apple Removes Ad-Blocking Apps over Security Issues
Apple has pulled out a few iOS 9 ad-blocking applications from its app store due to security concerns.
The apps that have been removed were the ones that installed their own root certificate. When this happens, third-parties can potentially view a user’s encrypted traffic and personal data. In turn, cyber criminals can easily inject malicious code into user devices without their knowledge.
According to an official statement released by Apple, “We’ve removed a few apps from the App Store that install root certificates which enable the monitoring of customer network data that can in turn be used to compromise SSL/TLS security solutions. We are working closely with these developers to quickly get their apps back on the App Store, while ensuring customer privacy and security is not at risk.”
