Don't worry. Just because we used the words "ping" and "social" in the same headline doesn't mean we're talking about that other social network. No, this is Seesmic Ping. From the developer who brought you the original Seesmic, Seemic Ping lets users post to Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn with one update. You can even do it from the past!

Seesmic Ping lets you schedule tweets and status updates for future dates.

The Facebook app received an update to v1.8.2 today, but since its developers neglected to include a changelog, millions of users found themselves wondering what exactly this version brought to the table. Thankfully, the Facebook for Android page on Facebook (you still with me?) released the following blurb:

We just released Facebook for Android 1.8.2 with better memory management, and all kinds of bug fixes. Please download it and post your feedback!

In the information age, discovery is a profitable trade. Google even built its fortune on discovering new and relevant info. As everyone and their mother begins sharing everything about their lives online, startups and large corporations alike have a new source of data to pull from. Enter Likes!, an app that uses things your friends and family have liked on Facebook to help you discover restaurants, movies, events, and more.

The app is a great concept.

Adding an entry to the long list of novelty photo apps in the Android Market, SilkenMermaid has introduced TurboCollage - an aptly named app that allows users to make "picture pile" collages in just a few moments, with a surprising amount of control options.

Once you selects images to be included in the collage, the photos can be rotated, resized, scaled, and layered, to create a collage that perfectly matches your vision.

Samsung Mobile USA is quite excited about recently reaching 1 million Facebook followers and is celebrating this event by giving out 30 high-end devices and 100 $50 Media Hub vouchers to anyone who follows them on Facebook and submits an entry form (you can do that once per day).

As a thank you to our one million Facebook fans and counting, we asked you what prize you'd love most... a Galaxy S II, Nexus, or Tab.

Happy New Year! A new year means it's time for the annual Android prediction post. First off though, a trip down memory lane with a look at Aaron's post from last year.

A Look Back To 2011

Way back in January 2011, we were all gobsmacked at the recent announcement of 300,000 Android activations per day. That looks cute now, doesn't it? A year later and it's more than doubled, now we're up to 700,000 per day.

Ready to hear some oh-so shocking news? Okay, here it comes - Facebook is the most launched app on Android. Well, if you want to get technical about it, Facebook isn't really the most launched app - it actually shows up in the list right behind the Android Market, but considering the Market is the gateway to all other apps (including Facebook, in most cases), it's pretty safe to omit it.

Facebook just announced via its blog that an improved Facebook app for Android should be rolling out today. The updated app brings speed, improved photo interaction, and a better UI.

For starters, this update seems to be all about speed. Photos and albums are said to be two times faster than the current app, and photo sharing, comment viewing, and caption editing have all been improved.

The notification center has also been moved to the top of the screen so it's always visible, much like the desktop version of the site.

ZeroPC is this crazy service that lets you access all the popular cloud services from one place. "All the popular cloud services" is shorthand for Box.net, Dropbox, Evernote, Facebook, Flickr, Google Docs, Instagram, Picasa and SugarSync. Yeah, everything.

The website is insane. They've whipped up an in-browser operating system. Imagine a Linux-based OS in your browser. That's exactly what the website looks like.

However, this is an Android blog, so we should probably focus on the freshly-released Android Tablet (only) app.

The Keyboard App Shootout is back! In today's crosshairs: Swiftkey X.

Swiftkey's driving theory is that, with enough information about you, it can predict what you want to type. Seriously. They even use the phrase "mind-reading" on their website. How do they expect to get to "mind-reading" levels? Well, they basically want to scan everything you've ever written. Swiftkey can mine your text messages, Facebook, Gmail, Twitter, and even your blog's RRS feed for sweet, sweet data about your typing habits.
