Amazon has gone live with a new feature for Kindle Fire devices called Login with Amazon. As you might expect, this allows developers to automatically use Amazon’s log-in credentials when users sign in to an app. The standard is OAuth 2.0 compliant and supports both Android and iOS, though you’ll only be able to get this single sign-on service on Kindle Fire HDX 7-inch, Kindle Fire HDX 8.9-inch, and Kindle Fire HD 7-inch for now.

Gmail on the web has added a handy new feature which lets you quickly attach images that are already in Google+ through Android’s photo auto-backup feature. This is a really great addition, considering how easy it is to start writing an e-mail on your computer, find out you need a photo from your phone, and then have to crack open Google+ in a new tab to start rifling around to find the right shot.
Google on Tuesday introduced a new feature for the desktop web-based Gmail experience that allows for better sharing of photos. Log into the browser version of Gmail and you might encounter a new “Insert Photo” button at the bottom of your composition window.
