Also as part of the most recent update, Amazon added the ability to subscribe and save subscriptions to the Your Account page, along with fixing some issues with Bluetooth keyboard input on certain tablets.

Time for a little history lesson. Way back in the summer of 2010, when smartphone screen sizes were still reasonable and people were still complaining about how hard it was to type on them, a little company called Swype Inc. thought it had the problem of touchscreen input licked. Android users went crazy trying to get into the beta for their gesture-based software keyboard, and tech blogs threw around words like "innovation" and "miracle" like rice at a wedding.

Chat clients limited to one-on-one conversation are going the way of the dodo. We've got numerous options for group messaging including: Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, Google+ Messenger, Live Messenger, and we're even pretty sure Babel (or whatever it will be called) will join the list. Today, popular cross-platform chat app, Tango, steps up to match its competitors.

The additions to the interface are very straightforward. You can pick multiple people from your contact list to start a conversation and at any time add new people or leave the chat altogether from the participants screen.

Hey guys, good news – remember the little trick to get access to Facebook Messenger's sticker feature? (If you've already forgotten about it, you may need to see a doctor. We just told you about it yesterday.) Well, that whole "hit the tiny invisible area beside the plus sign" is a thing of the past. Facebook Messenger was just updated with official support for those funky fatheads that apparently everyone loves.

"Good morning. Sometime today, packages from here will join others from around the world. And we will be receiving the largest delivery assault in the history of FedEx. FedEx. That word should have new meaning for all of us today. We can't be consumed by our petty differences anymore. We will be united in our common interests. Perhaps it's fate that today is delivery day, and you will once again be waiting by the door.

How many times have you been browsing around eBay on your mobile device, only to find about half-a-dozen things you intend on buying? Gone are the days of repeated transactions, because today the official eBay app has been updated to version 2.2, which brings the long-awaited shopping cart feature to mobile, at least in the US and UK.

With this new feature, you'll be able to add items to the cart to save for later, pay for multiple items in a single transaction (even those from different sellers!), and even be notified when an item in your cart is ending soon.

One of the best things about Android is its nearly-infinite customizability for users who are willing to put in the effort it takes to make it happen. The thing is, in order to get some of this functionality, less-than-savvy users are daunted by the task of doing things like flashing custom kernels. On the other side, some users just don't want to be troubled with kernel tweaks, but still want the advanced functionality that they can bring.

You may be familiar with Linden Lab as the folks behind the once very popular online world Second Life. The company also has a cross-platform mobile app called Creatorverse, which used to cost $4.99. Now, that app is free with in-app purchases, and users who paid for it are a bit confused.

Creatorverse is a sandbox-style app that lets you build various contraptions, machines, and puzzles with a wide array of tools.

Here at Android Police, we love Google Now (and all the associated voice actions), but the natural language could use a bit of sprucing up. If you'd like to try an alternative voice assistant, Indigo may grab your attention on this front. The pitch here is that the app remembers your conversations and can sync those inquiries across devices.

If you ask a question like, "Where can I find Indian food around here?" you'll get a list of results.

NASCAR, left turns, Keystone Light, yadda, yadda, yadda. Now that we've got the requisite good-natured ribbing of NASCAR fans out of the way, you've got to check out the impressive race coverage features in the latest official tie-in to America's biggest stock car racing tournament. NASCAR RaceView Mobile '13 is intended to be a "second screen" experience for watching the race on TV, providing a plethora of live information on drivers and vehicles.
