A Google+ Android app update is inbound that should help many of us get in the mood for the upcoming winter. And let's just say, this one is rather quirky.

What's New?

Once the update has made itself at home on our devices, all we need do is give them a shake while looking at one of your own photos to add snow to the shot - the same Auto Awesome effect Google rolled out just last week.

Looking to give players the experience of "truly carving down the mountain," Com2uS has released SummitX Snowboarding to the Android Market - a dynamic, exciting game focused around – you guessed it – snowboarding.

The game features 36 multi-branching courses on 6 different mountains, 10 customizable boards, a "majestic" 3D terrain, accurate "true-to-sport" physics, and a sound track featuring over 20 real rock bands. Overall, the game seems to function smoothly, and gameplay isn't too challenging, even on a 4.3" screen.

Just as promised, Rovio, the maker of the oh-so-popular Angry Birds, released a separate game called Angry Birds Seasons today, which contains 45 Halloween levels, previously only available on iOS, as well as 25 Christmas levels.

I haven't spotted any new birds yet, and I doubt they've added any, but I'm sure a few hours later, when you all finish every level, you will let us know. Oops, I take that back - the snow levels are available one per day, starting today, all the way through December 25th (see the last screenshot to see what happens if you try to click on day 2).
