Amazon updates Cloud Drive Photos for iOS with video support

The Amazon Cloud Drive Photos app for iOS has received an update, bringing support for videos. Appearing on iOS months after Android, TechCrunch reports that the app allows for videos up to 2GB or 20 minutes in length to be uploaded, with the Cloud Photos Auto-Save also updated to allow existing videos on an iPhone or iPad to be automatically uploaded to the service. Other tweaks include a "large upload mode" that disables the iOS lock screen to let uploads finish, and an indicator in the Settings screen showing the usage of Cloud Drive by media.

Facebook reportedly working on 'Sympathize' button as 'Like' alternative

Facebook could be introducing a "sympathize" button to the service in the future, as an alternative to the well-known "Like" button, according to a report. The Telegraph claims that the button, a product of a hackathon event, would allow users to commiserate with others over post topics where "liking" something would be inappropriate, such as a death or a divorce. A spokesperson for the social network did not offer when the button, or something similar to it, would be introduced, if at all.
