Surprise, surprise - Rovio's about to issue the next major content update to Angry Birds Rio early! The Carnival update will be available on the Market shortly (exactly how long, we don't know), and we already have the basic changelog:
15 levels in new world named Carnival Upheaval
Blue, the Macaw, can now be used alone.
The new hidden fruits are papaya (thanks to everyone who helped us figure this out)
There's several iOS sites that are already reporting on the update, and Rovio stated 2 days ago that Carnival would be coming to Android at the same time as iOS:
For those that use the Charles Schwab Corporation for your banking and brokering needs, you've probably gotten frustrated with the lack of a mobile app at some point in the past. Those frustrations can be a thing of the past now, though, as Schwab has released an official app in the Android Market.
With this app you can manage all of your investments and transfer money between accounts, get real time market quotes, and easily trade stocks, mutual funds, and ETF's.
When you hear a song and don't know what it is, but want to find out, what do you do? Fire up Shazam or SoundHound, of course. But what do you do when you see a video that you're lookin' to identify? Well, there hasn't really been a solution on Android to handle this sort of debacle - until now, that is.
Calling itself the "ultimate video discovery" app, VideoSurf is a direct answer to the iPhone's IntoNow - it can identify videos through audio and video recognition, suggest other videos, and locate other videos using keywords.
Out of all the things that we use smartphones for these days, calls come in pretty close to last. We're too busy texting, taking pictures, surfing the web, getting directions... you get the idea. What if we could incorporate all of these things into our phone calls though? That's exactly what Thrutu aims to do, and the newest update to the app makes most of that possible. Here's a video to get a better idea:
Every feature isn't highlighted in the video, though - it can actually do even more than that.
Remember that version of the Wall Street Journal app that was made for Android tablets (but not Honeycomb tablets)? Yeah, it didn't make a whole lot of sense to us, either. Fortunately, the folks over at the WSJ have finally decided to release an app specifically designed for phones.
Now you can access everything that you love about the WSJ from the palm of you hand. Don't have time to read an article as soon as you see it?
Do you like steak? No? Then get out of this post right now - because it's Steak Time.
Omaha Steaks has had their popular app "Steak Time" on iOS for a while now, and it was only a matter of time before an Android version emerged. That day has come, and now Android users can grill with the best of 'em.
I know what you're thinking, "this is probably some gimmicky app that just wants me to buy overpriced Omaha Steaks." But you're wrong - it's so much more.
If you're the BBC News lovin' type, then your dream app has landed in the Android Market. You can choose from a variety of categories including Top Stories, UK, World, Politics, Business, Technology, Health, Entertainment and Arts, and Sports, which can be easily be organized to your liking on the main screen of the app.
