[Download] Latest Android Wi-Fi Tether 3.1 Update Finally Brings Inactivity Shutdown, Stops Turning Off Bluetooth On Start

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.

SwiftKey X Update Brings A Host Of Performance, Visual Improvements

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.

    Interactive MIUI Mario Lockscreen Can Unlock Your Phone (But Not World 9)

    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.
