"There's something like 2 billion Android users that don't use Snapchat". Snapchat is finally growing again, and more growth is likely on the way and all because it seems to have finally completed the rollout of Project Mushroom, aka a backend overhaul of its rebuilt Android app that is 25 percent smaller and 20 percent faster."In the first quarter we delivered strong results across our business with growth in daily active users and revenue", said Evan Spiegel, CEO. "This month we announced several new products that we believe will drive further engagement and monetization".
Though this is definitely a smart move, it's not a guaranteed effort that will bring back the ex users of Snapchat, especially since both Android and iOS users have been leaving for the past year or so. This has even become a meme on Twitter and the likes where people roast how bad the experience on Android is. The app was extremely popular when Vine was still around and while it has lost some of its sheen now, it still remains popular among heavy Instagram users. It has released a rebuilt, new and a faster Snapchat Android app.
According to The Verge, Snapchat has finally released its new, rebuilt Snapchat Android app, which the company has been rewriting from the ground up since the beginning of 2018 to bring performance for the Android version up to par with the iOS app.While there are virtually no changes to the actual UI or navigation for Snapchat, the new app should be faster, less laggy, and less buggy than the old version.
The Snapchat app for Android was rewritten from scratch to bring its quality in line with that of its iOS counterpart. Not many things have changed as the user interface has stayed the same. However, there should be noticeable improvements in lag, speed and bugs. It s no secret that the iOS app performed much better than the Android app, which often ended up freezing and crashing no matter which version of Android or device was used.Earlier this month in an interview with Android Authority, members of Snapchat s development team said they ve been working on the rebuilt Snapchat app for a while. Initially it started as a plan to simply remaster the app by removing its issues, although that was impossible without rebuilding it from scratch.
Snapchat user growth has been on the decline. Evan Spiegel, CEO of Snap, the parent company of Snapchat is putting the blame on its Android app. While speaking at a media and telecom conference, Evan pointed out that the subpar experience on its Android app as the reason for its disappointing user growth, especially in international markets.Spiegel said that they have been working to improve their Android app since Snap went public in early 2017 and have been rolling out the newly rebuilt app to select users since late 2018.
Snapchat's Android redesign has been a long time in the making. Back in late 2017, Snap CEO Evan Spiegel promised a completely rebuilt Android app. The redesign could initially only be enabled with root access, though it's been possible to turn it on in the UI for many months now. Spiegel is now claiming that the rebuilt app will be fully deployed to all by the end of the year.
Sony claims the innovations of the film go beyond stylistic originality or envelope pushing success and qualify as a distinctly new invention, according to an exclusive report in Deadline. According to Rodney Rothman, who directed the movie with Peter Ramsey and Bob Persichetti, the Sony team received a mandate to basically challenge how animated movies are made and what they can be, from top to bottom. Completing the animation for the film required up to 140 animators, the largest crew ever used by Sony Pictures Animation for a film. Sony Pictures Imageworks and Sony Pictures Animation created a new visual language that pays homage to classic comic book visuals and rebuilt the animation and lighting pipeline wholly from scratch. Attempting to replicate the original look of the Miles Morales centered Spider Man comic book series, each frame inside the 116 minute film comprises a computer generated image (CGI) overlaid with a hand drawn illustration. The result is a visual energy that is so different from the clean, precise CG animation we see again and again in animated studio blockbusters.

This information, reported by Jason Evangelho at Forbes, would explain a few things. When AMD first talked about Vega at its Sonoma event in 2015, it stated Polaris would be a major GCN revamp, while Vega would be, if not a complete break with GCN, a full scale, ground up rearchitecting. While it;s true that Vega makes some significant changes to GCN and was obviously rebuilt to focus on hitting higher clock speeds, clock for clock, Vega isn;t much more efficient than GCN was in shipping titles.Comparisons found gains of 1 5 percent for the newer architecture. That was much smaller than the gains we had expected, and it played a part in why Vega hasn 't been as effective a competitor against Nvidia 's GTX 1070 and 1080 GPUs as AMD might have liked. It also impacts the overall temperature and thermals of the AMD chips remember, clock speed and power consumption don 't scale linearly, which is why the Radeon R9 Nano was vastly more power efficient than the Fury X while still being roughly 90 percent as fast. If Vega had gained more performance relative to Fury, AMD wouldn 't have had to run the chip 's clock as high, which directly translates to cooler, quieter cards.

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. Inventur Art in Germany, 1943 55 is a remarkable exhibition, but not because any of the work itself is particularly groundbreaking. It isn t. What s notable is that during this specific time, the decade or so after the end of World War II, any art was made at all. Indeed, historians still refer to this period as a gap in the study of German art history. This is understandable, given the restrictions placed on artists by the Nazi government before and during the war and the collapse of Germany afterwards. The thread is only picked up again in 1955 during the first iteration of Documenta in Kassel where German reengagement with the international art world began to take place.

More than 11 000 people died from Ebola virus disease (EVD) in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone during the 2014 15 West Africa epidemic: many times more than the total infected during all previous outbreaks of the disease combined. But that terrible death toll is only half of the story. The unprecedented scale of the outbreak resulted in an unprecedented number of survivors, many of whom still need help to deal with the lasting physical and psychosocial consequences of their infection. This new, complex and often marginalised patient population placed a significant additional burden on the shattered health systems of Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone systems that urgently needed to be rebuilt. The severity of the outbreak also opened the eyes of the world to our collective vulnerability to emerging and re emerging infectious diseases, and the need for coordinated global action to ensure that we are better prepared for the next outbreak forearmed with the vaccines, therapeutics and diagnostics that were absent during the height of the EVD epidemic.Previous reports to donors have detailed WHO's leading role in the international response that, by the end of 2015, had successfully brought an end to human tohuman transmission directly linked to the original outbreak. This report describes the work done by WHO from January 2015 up to the end of December 2016 to address the long term issues of survivor care, health systems strengthening and research. This work would not otherwise have been possible without the foresight and commitment of donors who, having contributed generously to the WHO led response to the outbreak, recognised the importance of dealing with its consequences.
