Llama Updated With Jelly Bean Support, Holo Inspired UI, Event Sharing, And More [Updated]

Update 2: Llama has been returned to the Play Store this morning as promised, listed as version 1.2012.12.29.1412. As for the pesky silent mode/vibrate bug? This version's changelog indicates that it is "hopefully fixed."

Yahoo! Mail Updated To v2, Brings New UI, Increased Stability, Improved Security, And Some Other Stuff

Still using Yahoo! Mail, eh? Good news! The app just hit v2, which, like most full-version releases, brings all sorts of new goodies. First, and probably the most noticeable, is that the app is now called Y! Mail and it has a brand spankin' new UI. Don't tell GMail I said this, but I actually think Y! Mail's new look is pretty decent.

[Weekend Poll] What Was Your First Version Of Android?

This is the latest in our Weekend Poll series. For last week's, see Will You Be Buying A New Kindle?

Earlier this week, Ron gave us an interesting look at what codenames came before Android 1.5, Cupcake (spoiler: 1.1 was "petit four," and 1.0 didn't have any codename at all). It's hard not to read the post without taking a nostalgic walk down memory lane, isn't it? I still remember heading into my local T-Mobile store to play with the G1 when it launched.

2012-07-02_22h19_09
