Inside iOS 11: one-handed keyboard assists large phones, absent on iPad — Starting with the release of iOS 11, iPhone users will have the option of invoking a special one-handed keyboard, making it especially easy to type with larger screens.

‘Sega Forever’ free-to-play classic games for iPhone are off to a good start, but aren’t perfect — Sega has released four classic games into their ad-supported free-to-play Sega Forever initiative, including Kid Chameleon, Altered Beast, Phantasy Star II, and Comix Zone. AppleInsider gave the retro titles a spin, and found room for improvement.

Host a remote YouTube viewing party with Uptime — Google’s social YouTube app, Uptime, is now available to all without an invitation code. First launched in limited testing earlier this year, Uptime is the result of a side project by Google engineers and is published under the company’s Area 120 brand for experimental apps and services.
Uptime wants to help users ‘Watch YouTube Together‘ by linking social media contacts to shared video playback and chat. Users can browse YouTube videos and see who’s watching, chat and share emoji-based reactions, and hold “parties” where multiple users can watch the same video together in sync. [Gak!]
