Chrooma is a keyboard app that closely resembles the Google Keyboard in many ways and that is largely due to the fact that it intentionally mimics it. It just received a new v3.0 update which brings quite a few new things to the popular app. Gesture typing and integrated Google Now are highlights of the update but it also brings other helpful features like using the spacebar as a trackpad to move the cursor around. However, copying significant features from Google Keyboard 5.0 is not the only thing that Chrooma did with the update. It also brought its own Action Row feature which adds an extra customizable row to your keyboard.
The new Chrooma also adds or improves upon features such as one-handed mode, the option of choosing your own style of emojis and our personal favorite, the awesome prediction feature. The Google Now integration allows you to search for any word by simply swiping up from the space bar. There are also a lot of new themes included in the package, although, they may look suspiciously similar to the ones on Google Keyboard! If you use Chrooma, let us know what you think about the update and if you don't, you can always try it out for free from the Play Store.

The LCD technology is endless, Japan Display Inc. took the wraps off a new WQHD (2560 x 1440 pixels) LCD display with in-cell touch integration. The high-end component is the first of its kind to enter mass production.
The newcomer will have a diagonal larger than five inches. It incorporates in-cell touch used in JDI's "Pixel Eyes" technology. In-cell touch integration has been difficult to incorporate in high-resolution displays, so the new LCD panel is quite an engineering feat.
Viewing angles of the display will be larger than 160 degrees. Its surface luminance and NTSC ratio are 500cd/m2 and 85% respectively. The unit's contrast ratio is 1500:1. We should see this display in devices starting this year.
