Facebook has been on a real push to take over users' phones as of late, with Facebook Home, Chat Heads, and updates to its official and Messenger apps. Today, it goes a step further, offering full, free voice calls to US users. This is the same feature that rolled out to Canadian users late last month.

The service requires Facebook Messenger to be installed (naturally) – to initiate a call, simply head into your contact list, open a message, and hit the "I" in the top-right corner.

Do you like context-sensitive action bars? Slide-out navigation menus? Cards? Well, LinkedIn's Android app just got a pretty significant UI refresh today, and it has all of those things. The app was undeniably in need of a facelift, and this new update looks pretty fantastic to my eyes.

Looks aside, version 3.0 of LinkedIn for Android adds a slew of new update stream features that were sorely lacking in previous versions - you can now invite, follow, like, share, and comment on update stream content directly from the feed.

ES File Explorer received its first major update in a while this morning, bringing the popular management app to version 3.0. The major change? A brand-new UI that isn't really Holo per se, but does incorporate a slide-out navigation bar and swipeable tabs.

Here's the complete changelog:

V3.0

  • New UI
  • Fast Access(Press menu)
  • Multiple Windows
  • Send Files By WiFi
  • Gestures(Drag,Zoom,Slide)
  • Classic Theme
  • New Picture,Root Explorer,Tools,...

While there certainly isn't any lack of competition when it comes to file management utilities on Android, ES File Explorer has remained one of the most popular such apps for quite some time now, and a UI refresh was probably high on users' lists at this point.

If you're a musician, aspiring beatmaster, or just really love dinking around with a digital keyboard, I have great news: FL Studio Mobile is finally here for Android. Device compatibility seems decent, but I don't have too many tablets around to check with - I do know it's compatible with the Nexus 7, and a fair number of recent Android phones (oddly, not the HTC One).

For the rest of you, yes, you read the title correctly - FL Studio Mobile costs $20.

While Yahoo may not shout "relevance!" from the treetops on an Android blog, the struggling web giant's email service is still hugely popular in the US. Its Android mail client, until now, hasn't explicitly supported tablets. A new update today changes that, and the end product is surprisingly decent-looking (certainly prettier than Outlook.com's most recent update).

While the UI layout isn't revolutionary, it is fairly attractive and clean, something I think we can all appreciate in an email client.

There really is no other app out on Android as robust as Chainfire's DSLR Controller when it comes to... controlling your DSLR camera. The $8 app - which already had over 10,000 downloads and a boatload of control features - just got a whole lot better this morning with a major update that should have the app's fans absolutely ecstatic. The mile-long changelog includes tons of fixes and improvements, but the new feature list is impressive on its own.

When it comes to aftermarket keyboards, we're big fans of SwiftKey. The prediction engine is second to none, Flow's gesture typing is full-on awesome, and you can customize it to look however you want. Honestly, what more could you want from a keyboard? It's things like this that have made SK a hit with users around the world.

Given that sort of global success, the folks at Swiftkey compiled a blog post with some fun facts about how users in different regions use the keyboard.

Back in October Subsonic was updated with a Holo interface, which was a vast improvement over the old UI. However, that update also included ads. There was a $4.44 in-app purchase to remove them, but now that's a thing of the past. The new version of Subsonic for Android is completely ad-free by default.

The upsell in the app didn't really make much sense in the first place.

Pocket, in an update to celebrate the one year anniversary of Read It Later's rebrand, has introduced (among other things) Send to Friend, a new feature that allows for quick, easy sharing of content with friends. Users can accept shared content directly from the Pocket app, using the app's new Inbox. Those sharing can also highlight quotes or add their own comments before sharing, sending them along for friends to read.

WordPress is a clutch tool for most bloggers, as its easy-to-use, versatile interface provides essentially everything one needs to get content on the internet. For the longest time, however, the associated app hasn't been the greatest thing to use (read: it kinda sucked); today, however, it has been updated to v2.3 which brings a new Holo UI, along with a few new features.

What's in this version:

It's the big UI update!
