Dolphin HD, one of the most popular Android browsers, was updated in the Market today to version 7.2. The updated app contains a toggle to enable the Webzine functionality, which following the privacy fiasco is now opt-in rather than opt-out.

UI-wise, the Exit popup can now be turned off and replaced with a simple back button double-tap, which finally lets you easily exit the browser by interacting with just a single button.

Delta Airlines customers with Android or iOS devices now have one more awesome feature to use with the airline's Fly Delta app – the ability to track their checked luggage as if it were a package, a feature previously only available online or at Delta customer service desks.

The app's latest update includes a rather sophisticated tracking system, which will scan your claim tag and automatically update with the location of your bags, ensuring that you always know where your bags are, and can be sure that they are traveling along without issue.

The official Race Of Champions game of unbelievable quality that Invictus has been teasing us with since October was just released in the Android Market. First organized in 1988, RoC is a real annual motorsport event "where stars from Formula One, World Rally Championship, NASCAR, sportscars and touring cars compete against each other, going head-to-head in identical cars" (per Wikipedia).

The Android version has stunning graphics and the level of detail you would regularly expect from a console game.

android wifi tether

In the last couple of days, I've been closely interacting with Harald Mueller, the developer behind Android Wi-Fi Tether for root users, a free and open source tethering app for Android. Android Wi-Fi Tether is pretty much a de-facto app when when it comes to tethering on Android devices that have native Wi-Fi tethering disabled (thanks, carriers), and is what I consider one of the most important apps in our supposedly open ecosystem.

This is the latest in our Weekend Poll series. For last week's, see How Many Apps/Games Do You Have Installed (Excluding Pre-Installed)?

Google debuted its official music store this week, and it's clear that the company has made a serious effort to bring to market a product that is geared towards consumers and artists alike. But can it crack a market that's already well-saturated (not to mention lead by the juggernaut that is iTunes)?

Tonight, TouchType Ltd. released a much-anticipated update to SwiftKey X, the text prediction authority among replacement keyboards. The update brings a ton of improvements, from UI tweaks to performance and language changes, and even prediction enhancements. Perhaps more important than all of that, however, is the fact that SwiftKey X 2.2 has full Ice Cream Sandwich support, and an enhanced multi-touch framework, keeping the keyboard replacement ahead of the curve.

Specifically, the update brings the following changes:

    • Full language localization for major European languages (English, Spanish, French, German, Italian and Portugese)
    • Intelligent typing support extended to 35 languages, including Arabic and Hebrew
    • Enhanced multi-touch framework for faster typing
    • Prediction and correction enhancements thanks to a more efficient Fluency engine
    • Graphic enhancements, including a better settings menu, alternative character selection and sharing features
    • Enhancements to the keyboard to change the height in both portrait and landscape modes
    • New Dvorak and Colemak layouts for those who wish to depart from QWERTY
    • Reduced memory use
    • Full Support for Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich

    If you aren't already a fan of SwiftKey X, these enhancement should go a long way in convincing you.

    Today brings more good news for Google TV owners with the release of the cloud-powered Google Music app. As Jurek Foryciarz, Product Manager of Google TV puts it:

    The app syncs with your Google Music account in the cloud, so there is no need to stream from a computer or download songs to the TV. Simply download the Google Music app for Google TV from Android Market, login with your account, and enjoy your entire music library through your HDTV and home theater system.

    The Google Music 4.0.9 update (remember the pre-release version 4.0.1 we leaked last month?) is live in the Android Market. The app now integrates with the new Music-enabled Market and has a brand new, much improved ICS-like UI.

    Update: For those outside the U.S., here are some download mirrors:

    Note: If you are using the leaked Music v4.0.1, you will need to uninstall it first, as it was signed with a different Google key.

    mariolockscreen

    In what is undoubtedly one of the coolest mods I've seen in months, developer picard666 has released an interactive Mario lockscreen for MIUI. So awesome, in fact, that words can't properly describe it. Take a look at the "diagram":

    mariolockscreen

    The top cloud shows the current time, and the two clouds below show calls and messages (left and right, respectively). To unlock into calls or messages, you take control of Mario and have to make him hit the corresponding coin box - a coin pops out (optionally with the accompanying sound), then your phone launches the appropriate app.
