SimpleSyrup: App updates for the week ended November 14th, 2014

App updates galore! Every week, developers push out updates to your favourite applications. There’s just too many for us to dedicate an individual post to every app, especially when the updates are often very minor or just to add one specific feature.

Evernote for Android got updated with support for business card scanning while WhatsApp for Android is on track for an update that will let you switch off those pesky blue check marks that rat out your delayed reply. We also saw the arrival of an Instagram update with an explore section, XCOM: Enemy Within, and a new standalone Android Messenger.
