Dropbox is the clear king when it comes to consumer cloud storage solutions. The app has gone through a number of significant overhauls during its life on the Android platform, and it's a solid experience these days. However, there's always more work to be done, and today's update brings several welcome improvements to how photos are handled, as well as various fixes and UI tweaks.
The full change log for version 2.3 lists the following additions:
- Easily share several photos at once
- Organize your favorite photos into albums
- Delete multiple photos at once
- UI improvements and updates throughout
- Lots of other little tweaks and bug fixes
Dropbox added photo sync last year, and it's a fairly nice service if you don't need a lot of configuration. Read More
If you follow Archos, you probably know the French tablet-maker's product formula by now: "cheap and usable." This is a strategy that has allowed the company to expand its product line greatly over the last year, and to branch out into less familiar territory. In particular, the recently-announced TV Connect and Gamepad are two devices unlike anything Archos has made previously.
The TV Connect's purpose is quite simple: you have Android running on your TV, with a TV-remote-meets-gamepad style controller. Read More
T-Mobile may be done with the idea of carrier subsidies, but AT&T is ready to just pile them on. In the category of 7" tablets, Lenovo's A2107 is not too bad of a deal. Some specs don't quite match up to the N7; for example the screen is a little lower resolution, it only runs Android 4.0, and the processor is a little less powerful. However, where those aspects lack, this slate makes up for it with front and rear cameras and a 3G radio at a lower introductory price point. Read More
U.S. Tab 2 owners, your time has finally come: the Android 4.1.1 update is officially making its rounds. The 311MB update – which has been available on the UK Tab 2 for a couple of months now – recently showed up on the Wi-Fi model (GT-P5113) here in the U.S. via both OTA and Kies.
Update: Looks like the Tab 2 10.1's little brother – the Tab 2 7.0 (P3113) – is getting the update as well, also through OTA and Kies. Read More
If you're in the market for a portable speaker, it's hard to beat the Braven 625S. Its dual 3W drivers can put out some sound, while the 1700mAh battery doubles as a portable charger to power your devices in a pinch. And for today only, you can score one of these bad boys for $99 from Best Buy. It goes for around $180 on Amazon on any other day, so grabbing one today will save you a cool eighty dollar bill.

It's been quite a while since we've heard anything from the video-identifying application IntoNow, but out of nowhere the Yahoo!-owned app was bumped up to v2.0 late yesterday evening. The update brings several new features, which mostly focus on the social aspect of the app:
What's in this version:
- Capture and caption your favorite "Did you see that" moments with Capit – instantly create pictures from your TV, add a caption and/or comment, and share with your friends.
If you're looking for a way to set your Nexus 7 apart from the pack, dbrand has the solution: custom adhesive skins. These skins come in a variety of colors and textures – everything from pink leather to white carbon fiber or metallic titanium. They're pretty badass. Of course, we would expect nothing less from a site with such fantastic design.
This contest is now over.

Ready to try the latest version of Chrome for Android, but don't want to wait for the updates to hit the stable channel? No worries – Google just released an official beta channel for Chrome for Android. This new channel should "release early and release often" according to the Chrome blog, so you'll always have the latest build smokin' out of Google's servers.
Of course, "beta" comes at a cost – sometimes it's at the cost of stability, sometimes it's at the cost of borked features. Read More
