There is no shortage of launcher replacements for Android, but once in a while a new one comes along and takes the launcher experience to a new level. Such is the case with TSF Shell Pro, a new launcher currently in development by a team of developers who call themselves C3D. TSF, their brand, stands for The Special Forces, and special they are - just take a look at what the team cooked up.

This message is brought to you by the Anti-Lizard Society who would like to remind all lizards that squashing virtual ants on their smartphones is a much better substitute for real-life violence and would like to donate a number of Android device to the annual Ant Squashing competition.

Google has started pushing out a new Market update with version 3.4.4, which upon quick inspection operates faster than before and brings a setting for auto-adding of widgets to your home screen.

If you missed the changes in the previous major update v3.3.11, read about them here. A minor update v3.3.12 is here.

Note that I did say widgets, not app icons, though according to early tests, it's still icons that are being added and not widgets.

Day eight of the 10 Billion Apps promo is upon us, and today we have only 5 6 7 (thanks, Hugo, rampagedeluxe) new apps compared to 8-10 that we've been seeing until now. Looks like Google is really running out of options, but alas - here they are:

Here are all the days so far if you want to see them again:

It's an early Monday morning, and while Google doesn't update the 10 Billion Apps promo page until 8-9am Pacific, some resourceful folks have already found all of the apps for today. The collection keeps going down in overall selection quality with each day, and we have a few repeats yet again, but we shouldn't look an [almost] gifted horse in the mouth.

Here are today's apps and games:

The final release date for the worst Android device launch in Verizon's history since the Thunderbolt and the Bionic is still unclear, but some Best Buy locations apparently didn't get the memo and started selling the Galaxy Nexus ahead of schedule. Some of those who were lucky enough to grab this holiday season's hottest LTE-enabled Ice Cream Sandwich gadget decided to let the photos do the talking, as folks tend to get pretty edgy when it comes to Galaxy Nexus news.

Looks like the new Email Developer feature that the web Android Market received on Friday was just the icing on the cake! While it was nice to finally have the ability to contact developers without having to go through the device Market, it was still a pretty minor addition. Don't fret - Google was nowhere near being done - you can now:

  • filter user reviews by device model, currently limited to All and individual devices registered to your account.

I sure love these Google Fridays - the Android team tends to release quite a few little updates to the web Market that make us feel warm on the inside, and it turns out this week is no exception.

You can now email developers with a question or a bug report right from the web Market - a feature previously available only in the device Market. For example:

The email url is a simple mailto: link, which should pop up your favorite email client (Gmail in my case).

Earlier today, Verizon officially announced the upcoming Droid XYBOARD's / XOOM 2's December 12th release date, but who really wants to wait this long just to grab all of its delicious wallpapers? Nobody, that's who, which is why all 11 of them are now looking for a new home, thanks to Droid Life.

Download them one by one (right click, then Save Link As) or grab the whole collection if you want - the choice is yours.
