Android, as a platform, has an advantage in that apps designed for phones scale to tablets dynamically, so many are functional without a proper tablet interface. The disadvantage? Some developers take their sweet time making said tablet interfaces. Twitter, for example, is still a giant, stretched-out version of the phone app. Enter Plume, an app that sticks much more closely to the ICS design style guide.

While adhering to the style guide may not always be enough to make an app great, Plume provides a highly-customizable UI that makes use of the best parts of Android's new design elements.

Your down time is Zynga's bread and butter. Between Words with, Hanging with, and Scramble with Friends, Zynga has a pretty big monopoly on your social gaming. Today, the casual gaming giant is building out new territory in your world with a paid version of Scramble with Friends. This version removes those pesky ads and also doubles your token-earning fun. These tokens, by the way, are not the worst thing in the world.

There's no doubt that the Galaxy Nexus is one of the best things Verizon Wireless has going for it right now. If you've been thinking about jumping over to Big Red so you can grab the Android 4.0 flagship, but can't justify the $300 price, then AmazonWireless and Wirefly are here to save the day.

Both of the online retailers are offering the GN for a mere $80 with a new two-year agreement, so the toughest decision that you're left with is which one one to buy from.

Sidescrollers. Guns. Jumping. Brown. It's as if all of these things were just meant to go together since the dawn of time, yet no one dares combine them for fear of failing. Finally, one developer set out to do the unthinkable and bring them all together in a never before seen combination of awesome, old, and stuff. The end result was Gunman Clive, a retro-style sidescroller of kickass proportions.

Seriously, watch this.

If it runs Android, it can (and will) be rooted. That's the mantra of Android hackers, modders, and developers across the board, and today's root exploit proves it to be 100 percent true. How so? Because Bluestacks has been rooted. Yes, that Bluestacks - the one that allows users to run Android inside of Windows.

So, why would anyone actually want to root Bluestacks? Three words: Play Store access. By default, Bluestacks doesn't allow users to access the Play Store, and an Android device (though I wouldn't actually call Bluestacks a "device") without the Play Store doesn't provide a very good experience.

Back in February, U.S. Cellular announced its LTE network, along with the Samsung Galaxy S Aviator as its first LTE smartphone. The Aviator is officially available today for $199.99 after $100 mail-in-rebate and the signing of a two-year agreement. If you happen to be in one of U.S. Cellular's LTE coverage areas, however, you can snag this device for $99 after a $100 mail-in-rebate for a limited time.

A new Google Play Store v3.5.16 started rolling out to some Android users in the last 24 hours. This version replaces 3.5.15, which brought a whole host of new features last time around, and reportedly brings fixes to those having trouble seeing purchased apps or experiencing force closes.

Additionally, improvements in snappiness were reported, but it could just end up being the placebo effect. I haven't found any other obvious changes thus far.
