A new version of SwiftKey X has been released to private beta testers, and it brings quite a few improvements. Chief among them: the ability to learn from your blog via RSS - certainly a nifty feature. Other highlights include better error reporting, general performance improvements, and a number of bug fixes. The update also brings a new novelty feature in the form of the "My typing heatmap," which keeps track of keystrokes and displays a "heatmap" of the keyboard.
Before Facebook started offering its own 'check-in' feature, there was Gowalla and Foursquare, both of which are still widely used. The Gowalla app for Android received an update today to version 4.0 which brings "a brand new version of Gowalla! Tons of new features including Guides, Stories, and Lists, and more. [sic]" to the table. No, really. That was directly from the changelog in the Market listing. The only entry in said changelog, to be exact.
Not into the girl-centric HTC Rhyme? How about 5GB of free cloud storage courtesy of Dropbox to sweeten the deal? No? Fine. Regardless of whether or not this makes the Rhyme more appealing to the testosterone-fueled among us, HTC has joined forces with Dropbox to up the amount of free cloud storage from 2GB to 5GB on all new and upcoming Sense 3.5 devices.
If you're hoping that your device will snag a Sense 3.5 update and some bonus cloud space to go with it, I wouldn't suggest holding your breath.
It's a bittersweet feeling when one of the most revolutionary devices to hit the market ends up on a carrier's EOL (End of Life) list. While it's generally realized that the device itself is old hat, its retirement indicates that newer, better, and more powerful devices are upon us.
This is the case for one of Android's most celebrated success stories: the HTC EVO 4G. According an internal Sprint document obtained by SprintFeed, the white variant of the EVO 4G will meet its demise at the end of this week, while the black one will hang on for just a while longer -- at least until the first part of October.
When I switched from AT&T from Verizon and swapped my aging, battered, and bruised Nexus One for a DROID BIONIC, the possibility of buyer’s remorse was not on my mind. I was coming from AT&T - America’s single least reliable network in terms of dropped calls. So, I thought the last thing I’d end up doing was wishing I was back there. And now, at least part of me does.
If you own a Verizon 4G LTE handset, you’ve probably experienced an issue exactly or approximately like this one: You put your phone in your pocket or let it sit overnight, take it out some time later or the next morning, and there’s no data connection.
OnLive officially launched an innovative cloud-based gaming service at the Eurogamer Expo in London yesterday, making on-demand gameplay available to users throughout the UK.
The new service supports a vast array of devices including HDTVs, PCs, Macs, and (soon) Android and iPad tablets connected to "almost any" broadband connection.
As a special promotion of the service, BT, one of the UK's most popular broadband providers, is offering its customers three months of free access.
Until recently, Amazon's Appstore for Android has been the only game in town when it comes to (legally) obtaining paid apps for free. Getjar has changed that, however, by beginning the Getjar Gold Program which offers an entire catalogue of paid apps absolutely free and without ads. It would seem that Getjar's new program is a huge success, at least in the case of one development company.
Mobisoft, developers of Imperio RDP remote desktop client, released a press statement recently reporting on the company's experience thus far with Getjar Gold, boasting "three times the revenue" in its first week as part of the program over revenue generated by the Android Market.
Leap Wireless, purveyors of Cricket pre-paid cellular services, is set to expand its business to the entire nation beginning Sunday, September 25.
Building on its presence as a regional service, Leap Wireless signed a reseller agreement with Sprint Nextel last year to begin using their network nationwide. On the 25th, Best Buy, followed by select Wal-Mart locations, Dollar Stores, and HSN will begin offering Cricket devices including the ZTE Score - an Android-based device - as well as phones supporting Leap's Muve Music service.
Anyway, because we love you, we've mirrored the APK here for you to try out. Check your version first though, you may have already updated! We'll update this post if we spot anything new, and you let us know if you spot anything new.
The carriers continue screwing us in lockstep. Sprint is once again making its service less appealing (and more in line with the rest of the quadopoly) by putting a 5GB cap on its Mobile Hotspot plans. As always with capped data, overage fees are now here to keep you up at night. Going over the 5GB cap will tack 5¢ per MB onto your bill, which means the homepage of AP is going to cost you around $0.30.
