Since Android 4.2 introduced native lockscreen widgets, we've seen several devs already push out updates to their apps with support for the feature. The latest to do so is LevelUp Studio, which updated its Twitter client Plume. This is actually my personal favorite when it comes to Twitter clients on Android, especially for tablets. So I was pretty glad to see the 4.2 lockscreen widget show up.

The update also brings a few other fixes and enhancements to the app:

- add a lockscreen widget on Android 4.2
- fix the widget context on Android 4.2
- fix the display of the DM recipient
- fix Facebook timeline not updating in some case
- fix unread list item appearing multiple times
- improve the picture cache coherence
- make Halloween notification sound available all the time

Plume is, of course, a free app in the Play Store, though there's also a $5 premium version available for those who prefer an ad-free experience.

For as long as I can remember, I've been using Mint to manage my personal finances. It syncs with all my accounts/credit cards, and the mobile app is pretty fantastic. Today, the Mint team pushed a pretty major update to the app in the Play Store, which brings a whole slew of new features to both the phone and tablet interfaces:

Phone Enhancements:
- Edit Budgets
- Create New Budgets
- Split Transactions
- Updated UI based on Android 4.0 Guidelines
- Updated Widget
- Squished Bugs
Tablet Enhancements:
- Split Transactions
- Net Income Over Time Trend
- Updated Widget
- Squished Bugs

With additions like the ability to edit/create budgets and split transactions (!), I can almost completely abandon the Mint website and manage all my finances completely from a phone or tablet.

When I first covered Pixlr Express a few days ago, I noted that the presence of a photo editing app was odd in Autodesk's lineup of powerful tools. Having developed apps like ForceEffect, 360 Mobile, and AutoCAD WS, you'd think Autodesk was marketing to power users who want to design, edit, animate, and engineer from the palm of their hand. Still, Autodesk's first foray into the mobile photo editing world – Pixlr-o-matic – was a hit.

Android's tablet-optimized app selection being what it is, we're always excited to see a useful new app get revamped for bigger screens. It's true that a separate app package isn't technically necessary for transitioning to a great tablet layout, but Amazon has taken a step in the right direction, having just released Amazon Mobile for tablets to the Play Store.

If you've used the regular Amazon Mobile app, you know what you're getting with Amazon Mobile for tablets.

Many of the sports news apps on Android are either lacking in features or are horrendously ugly. That's why 365Scores is currently storming the charts in Google Play. This app delivers all the news and scores for your favorite teams, and the UI is totally usable.

The app allows you to set your favorite teams so that it can deliver you relevant news. It gets live updated scores and even some video highlights from certain games.

If you had an open canvas to create basically anything and bring it to life, what would you do with it? That's essentially the question asked by Creatorverse, a new app that lets you do just that. It's actually a little difficult to explain; thankfully, Linden Research - yes, the same Linden Research behind Second Life - made a video that explains it pretty clearly.

So, with Creatorverse, you make things that do things.

Way back in February, a man by the name of Ben Randall demoed an amazing voice control app called "utter!" that he had started developing. The initial video (a whopping 22 minutes long) demonstrated some amazing capabilities - take a look for yourself:

But that was over 9 months ago, and aside from the initial release of the (very limited) alpha, we haven't heard much about the app, though Mr. Randall has kept interested parties updated via his very active XDA thread.

If you're a Comcast subscriber, there's a good chance you're already using the Xfinity TV Player app. The problem is, though, if you're not around a Wi-Fi connection and want to watch something, you're just out of luck. Well, you were out of luck anyway - the app was just updated to allow certain content to be downloaded and viewed offline. That's awesome.

Among the downloadable content, you'll find TV Shows and movies from Showtime, Starz, Encore, and MoviePlex.
