For those who may not know, Echofon is a pretty popular Twitter client for iOS, Windows, Mac, and - strangely enough - Firefox. It combines a clean interface with basic Twitter functionality in a lightweight package; as such, many Android users have been waiting for it to makes its way over to our side of the fence.

Echofon for Android alpha recently became available, and after playing with it for a few minutes, I have to say that it looks and feels much more polished than I expected.

Sports team calendars have been a long-time feature of Google Calendar. The ability to sync those calendars to mobile, however, has been absent equally as long. Until now, that is.

If you sync any sports calendars with your GCal, you now have the option to also sync those up on mobile. They should show up under the "calendars to display" menu - if not, make sure to refresh your calendars and check again.

We all know how useful floating apps can be, so an always-on-top performance monitor makes perfect sense for power users and developers. One such project just hit the Play Store from developer Chainfire, who has already brought us several other useful tools, like CFBench, SuperSU, and FAAPT.

Simply called Perfmon, this is a floating application that can output certain metrics for monitoring purposes: foreground app, CPU, disk I/O, and network I/O.

There's a lot of great things about custom ROMs, but one of the pitfalls is that you need to manually check for updates and install them. Those of you running the popular AOKP (Android Open Kang Project) family of ROMs will definitely want to check out Kangerator, a new app designed to compliment everyone's favorite unicorn-powered Android build. The brand new release is available from the Google Play Store now, free of charge.

If you hadn't noticed, Dropbox and Google Drive have been having a friendly rivalry ever since the latter popped up on Android. The latest update to the Dropbox app (2.2) makes good on the additional photo features they've been adding over the last year by revamping the user interface, especially for the photos and videos automatically updated to your cloud storage drive. The UI is now more of a gallery than a bare-bones file browser, thanks to the new Photos tab.

Sure, Google may have acquired Zagat and used the company's renowned ratings engine to start powering its data on everything from electronics stores to car washes. However, the review site got its start in restaurants way back in the day, and even after the purchase, continues to provide helpful information on every aspect of your food consumption outings. So, why not give the service its own app? Well, that's just what everyone's favorite search giant did!

One of the biggest drawbacks to buying apps on things like the Play Store is wondering if it does what you need it to do before you put your money on the line. AppSurfer, an India-based startup, is building a platform to alleviate this concern and give developers a web-based tool to let users test drive their apps before they buy. If this sounds familiar, it's because Amazon allows customers to do this very thing on its Appstore.

One of the most popular third-party browsers in the Play Store, Dolphin Browser, received a fairly major bump today up to version 9.0. This brings a handful of worthwhile enhancements, including support for the HTML5 rendering engine from Dolphin Beta. In this case, however, the Dolphin team has made the engine an optional addon called Jetpack instead of making it the default. So, basically, making the browser faster on HTML5 sites is optional, for whatever reason.
