  • Many iPhone users enjoy the freedom of Facetime. However, due to the nature of that app, it will only work for iPhone users. Google Duo is different. It works “cross platform.”  That is, an Android user can video chat with an iPhone user. I have used Google Duo, and it works very well. If you get it and you are currently in my contacts list, it will automatically add you to my Duo list. Available on both platforms.  Android | iOS
  • Speaking of Google Duo, this article from Android Headlines states that it has surpassed 100 million downloads.
  • In the interest of fair play, here is an article detailing one user’s breakup with Android. My own experience is nothing like described in the article, and it makes me wonder what people are doing with their devices, but I leave it here for your enjoyment. 
  • If you are a WhatsApp user, you will want to read this article.

  • I love the game of chess and have watched Garry Kasparov play many matches.  I only wished I lived closer to St. Louis to watch in person. By the way, I play many correspondence games on chess.com.  My username is mdivman if you want to look me up, friend me, and play live or correspondence games. Chess.com is free, but there are premium options as well. They hold many live and correspondence tournaments as well. Great place to play!
  • Each month I attempt to send out a newsletter of news, prayer requests, and praise reports.  At times, I do a video report. If you are interested in receiving it, please fill out the form at the bottom of the page. At most, you will receive 1-2 emails a month.  

The Daily Roundup is published Mon-Fri.  See you next week!

  • I use IFTTT all the time. I have recipes created for inbound and outbound SMS messages that log the entire text of every message to a Google spreadsheet.  If I accidentally delete an important message, I can easily retrieve it from my spreadsheet. I also have a Twitter log of tweets sent and others that I favorite. It is an outstanding service that will automate many tasks you are probably doing manually. This CNET article highlights a few, but you will want to check out the website for much more. 
  • Android “O” versus iOS 11 — CNET weighs in on why they are more excited about the Android update than they are the Apple update.
