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.

The creators of such marvels as My Beach and Celtic Garden, DualBoot Games, have outdone themselves this holiday season with Christmas HD - what I believe to be the most intricate live wallpaper I've seen on Android in a long time (ever?).

Customizable lights, gifts, tree topper, snowflakes, garlands, and a Christmas countdown are just the tip of the iceberg. Wait till you see your own photo above the fireplace, your family's names embroiled on the stockings, and a note to Santa signed by the same guy or gal who's looking back at you in the mirror every morning.

How many task managers that keep track of To-Do items can we need on Android? The creators of Taskos, which in itself is a task list manager, thought we were in such dire need for one more that they had to one-up even themselves and create Any.DO.

Any.DO has a completely new interface that is so slick that you will find yourself wondering whether you're running an Android app at all.

I'm not sure I would personally ever do that (wait, I'm sure - I'm shrugging just thinking about it), but let's say that you really love the look and feel of the the iOS desktop UI found on Apple's iPhone, with the launchpad, rounded corners, folders, trembling icons with little X's, etc. However, you also love the flexibility that Android offers. Can both be combined? The answer, as it turns out, is yes - Espier Launcher, which just landed in the Android Market (probably immediately infringing on a few dozen Apple patents).

Anyone out there still use Hotmail? No? Okay, never mind.

I kid, I kid. I know there are plenty of people who still use Hotmail, and if you fall into that category, you'll be glad to know that an official Android app just landed in the Market.

The Hotmail app brings key features from your Microsoft mail experience to your mobile device, including:

  • Push mail
  • Calendar and contact sync
  • Folder and sub-folder support
  • Send/receive attachments
  • Multiple account support

So, all you Hotmail lovers, head over the Android Market to grab your piece of hot-and-fresh mail-on-the-go-pie.

With the flood of Android apps hitting the Market everyday, finding exactly what you're looking for can be difficult and frustrating. Typically, when any of my Android-carrying friends are looking for new apps to play with, they ask me for suggestions. Likewise, I hit up my fellow editors when looking for something new and interesting to fiddle with (and let's not forget about Artem's awesome app roundups).

The crew over at AppBrain must've realized that, while their current app discovery system is good, the social element of finding new apps is the direction most people go.

Skype for Android, an app that gets almost as much love as it does hate, was updated to version 2.5 a few minutes ago. Because the last update unofficially opened up Skype to all 2.2+ devices, this time around Skype simply listed 13 more devices as whitelisted and approved for video chat capabilities:

  1. Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 (T-Mobile)
  2. HTC SHOOTER (KDDI)
  3. Sony Ericsson Xperia Live with Walkman
  4. Sony Ericsson Xperia neo V
  5. Acer Iconia Tablet (A500)
  6. LG Optimus Black LANDSCAPE ONLY
  7. LG Optimus 3D LANDSCAPE ONLY
  8. LG Optimus 2x LANDSCAPE ONLY
  9. Motorola Photon
  10. Motorola Droid3 LANDSCAPE ONLY
  11. Motorola Bionic LANDSCAPE ONLY
  12. Motorola Xoom
  13. Motorola Atrix

Notice how the list contains 13 devices, even though the changelog says 14.

CrashPlan is an amazing service that I've been using for a number of years to back up not only my desktops and laptops, but also all the Linux servers. I can't recommend it enough due to the fact that it's cross-platform (Java), can be headless (client/server architecture), has no storage limitations, can use various configurable destinations (cross-backup across my devices), multiple schedules and backup sets, practically unlimited file versioning, etc, etc - it is literally the best offering on the market that I've tried so far.

I am not a big fan of live wallpapers. They provide me with eye candy for a few minutes before I completely lose interest and start playing Cut The Rope. However, sometimes live wallpapers can be informative or so compelling that they deserve a second look. The Neon Microcosm Free LWP is one such live wallpaper that is not particularly useful but is aesthetically pleasing.

This live wallpaper hurtles you around a colony of glowing cells and if you purchase the paid version you can also tap the screen to generate new cells and select their colour.
