When it comes to must-have tools installed on my desktop, laptop, tablets, and phones, Dropbox is close to the very top of the list. Having access to your data anytime, anywhere, from any device, is an absolute godsend, and anyone who isn't yet using Dropbox is missing out on an insanely useful service.

For those who are using Dropbox, though, you probably know how easy it is to score some free space by getting your friends to sign up for the service with your referral code.

In case you were wondering if a rebrand was the only thing Google was doing to set itself up as a content provider, rest easy. Google's still working at signing those content deals. Today's deal is with Paramount. You may remember Paramount as the company that likes to throw stars at you while you're flying over a mountain. This new content deal brings 500 movies to the Play Store, and surprise!

doubleTwist Alarm Clock

I already know that some of you may be wondering how in the world an alarm app made it into our March roundup for best newly released apps, so let's start with a simple explanation. DoubleTwist Alarm Clock made our cut for two reasons: it's quite possibly the most good looking alarm option on the Play Store at the moment and it keeps waking up simple by eliminating many of the useless features we find in other alternatives.

Star Defender 3

We were first introduced to Star Defender 3 a short time ago, but it has already become one of our favorites. This spectacular space shooter by Awem Studio really has quite a bit going for it, and if you happen to be a fan of games similar to Space Invaders then this title will definitely whet your gaming appetite.

In Star Defender 3, you'll come up against wave after wave of alien enemies, but you also have a very large arsenal of weapons to fend them off.

They may not be available for sale yet, but Google would like you to know that the future is coming. Dubbed "Project Glass", Google has released some photos of what the now-confirmed Google Glasses might look like when released, alongside a video demonstrating how the UI might work. It's all just show and no tell right now, but it's enough to whet our appetite.

It's not quite enough, though, to allay our reservations.

Sprint

Owners of the Samsung Conquer 4G on Sprint may have received notification of a small OTA update this morning that brings a couple of little changes to the device, including a "security fix." Like with past updates, that basically translates into "removal of Carrier IQ software."

Aside from that, it also removes the Magic, Smoke, Maps, Nexus, Spectrum, Water, and Waveform live wallpapers (does anyone actually use those, anyway?). The update should be rolling out now according to Sprint's online documentation and will hit all devices within the next ten days.

An update to the Gmail app just hit the Play Store that brings a number of smaller-ish features, most of which are for Honeycomb tablets. The app now offers some of the benefits of ICS on its older brother:

Android 3.2 (Honeycomb) users get the Android Gmail 4.0 (ICS) experience with:

  • Swipe to move between newer and older conversations
  • Tap your account to access Recent labels
  • Set custom notifications for individual labels
  • Sync last 30 days of messages so you can read and search messages faster both online and offline

It also brings some minor changes for users on Froyo or Gingerbread:

Android 2.2 (Froyo) and 2.3 (Gingerbread) users get:

  • New Labels API for 3rd-party app developers
  • Performance improvements

The update is live in the Play Store right now, so go ahead and pull it down to enjoy the new features!

We've heard whispers that the powers that be have been working on a bulk subscription service for magazines. Now, they're finally delivering it. Next Issue offers users a very Netflix-like subscription service that includes unlimited access to current and some older issues of a selection of magazines for $10 a month. Or, for $15 a month you can get a slightly bigger selection of magazines. Yes, it's tiered.

At the moment, the selection is particularly small, though it does offer quite a few big name magazines.

Ever since SwiftKey first hit the scene, one realization has become very clear to me: SwiftKey users love their keyboard. Seriously. Don't even try to convince those guys (and gals) that there could be a better alternative out there, because it's pointless.

For all the SwiftKey VIP members out there, a new beta just hit the SK VIP lounge for you to try. The next gen mind-reading keyboard brings some nifty features to an already nifty keyboard, including smart space, a feature that automatically detects where spaces should be in real-time.
