Ah, Words With Friends. What was once one of the most anticipated games on Android quickly becme one of the most hated due to its bug-laden nature and lack of good support. The app has now received another update that NOT only brings "loads of bug fixes" - call me skeptical, but I'll believe that when I see it - but a new Words with Friends store. Yeah, a store.

So, what kind of things can you buy from this store?

As 2011 comes to a close, the internet is abuzz with best of, top, and most popular posts covering the past year. Mobile analytics firm Mobilewalla has gotten in on the action and released a list of the highest rated apps of 2011, as chosen using their own ranking system. The list itself covers all four major mobile platforms (Android, iOS, Blackberry, and Windows Phone 7), but, naturally, we're just going to discuss the Android entries.

In the ever-expanding world of Kairosoft's Story games, another entry just made its way into the Android Market. This go around it's all about designing your own mall, complete with food court and storefronts. There are several options in place to make your mall the top-dog of them all - you can even add a helipad on top!

Once your facility hits a certain level of popularity, a "fever" will strike the patrons and your mall will be swamped with new business.

Samsung-Galaxy-Note

The Galaxy Note from Samsung, a device that has an almost cult-like following at this point. Those who love it, really love it. Those who hate it, well... just hate it. Some say it's too big, while others lust for its 5.3-inch Super AMOLED HD display. Unfortunately, U.S. users have been left wanting since the Note's release a few months ago. Sure, we've seen tell-tale signs that it is indeed going to land stateside eventually, but Samsung has now removed all doubt.

A few weeks ago, Google released a cool new way to consume content on mobile devices called Currents. For those who are unaware, Currents takes your favorite websites and transforms them into digital magazines (granted that the site has its own Currents edition). Well, now you can keep up with everything going on here at AP on Currents.

Finding us on Currents is easy; there are two ways of going about it.

A new app just hit the Android Market that helps bridge the gap between Google TV and iDevices that use Apple's Airplay technology. The app is called Airtight, and it allows you to stream non-DRM movies and images directly to your GTV. In its current state the app cannot stream DRM content or music, but the developers note that they are working on support for the latter.

The app will only set you back $0.99, so if you have both an iDevice and Google TV, it's definitely worth grabbing.

For mobile document editing, there has always been one clear choice: Quickoffice Pro. But, for those who only need it occasionally, justifying the $10 price tag may just not be possible. With that in mind, the Amazon Appstore comes to the rescue, as you can get this mobile Microsoft Office compatible suite for only $2.99!

If you're not familiar with the Quickoffice Pro, it allows you to  view, edit, and save Word, Excel, and PowerPoint files all on the go from your mobile device.

We've taken a look at a couple of portable chargers in the past, but the PortaCharge from DriodAX offers something that we haven't seen on any of its competitors: a digital display that outputs exactly how much juice the unit has (in percentage). This gives it a definite advantage over its competition, as it addresses one of the biggest annoyances with other portable batteries and ensures that you always know when it's time to put it on charge.

HTC is continuously adding phones and tablets to its official bootloader unlock page, and a couple of new devices have made their way into the now-unlockable arena. The EVO View 4G is one such device, as it now joins its Wi-Fi only brother, the Flyer, in the world of open bootloaders. Also joining the mix is the T-Mobile myTouch 4G Slide, the first device from the myTouch family to make its way onto the portal.

How many times have you typed something long, be it a URL or text message, only to accidentally erase the entire thing and have to start over? That has happened to me more times than I care to count, but thanks to a new app called Clip Ninja, that scenario could be a thing of the past.

The idea behind Clip Ninja is pretty simple: it keeps track of most things that you type.
