It's been quite a while since we've delved into the realm of root apps on Android, so let's get to it. If you're rooted and not taking advantage of it, why even bother? The Android development community is ready and waiting to help you master your device.

The apps on this list have been carefully selected as "must-have" apps for root users. Well, what are you waiting for? Read on for eight more great root apps.

If you happen to be the type of person who buys things, then we have good news. In fact, you may even think it's great.

Google Shopper just got updated.

A little anticlimactic? Fine. It's still good news, though. Especially for those who like to spend money. Which is basically everyone.

So, what does this new update bring? All kinds of stuff. How do I know this, you ask? Because I looked at the changelog.

As long as you're not being scammed with fake cashier's checks, eBay can be a great resource to get goods on the cheap. The eBay app hasn't always been the easiest to use, but the new update brings some solid improvements and makes it much easier to post items for sale.

The full list of changes in version 2.1 are:

  • Streamlined listing flow makes it faster and easier to list your items:
  • Save multiple listing drafts so you can finish at your convenience
  • Calculated shipping now supported (domestic only)
  • More guidance and pre-populated fields to simplify the process
  • Saved search improvements
  • Improved shipment tracking information
  • Improved image handling

The eBay app now seems to have all the features you'd get on the website.

If you think back to the browser redesign that came with Android 4.0, you might recall the quick controls feature – a circular popup controls you could trigger with a tap. TasKarou Launcher Overlay takes that same idea and makes it universal in Android. This app can give you access to settings, searches, apps, and more with just a flick.

Quick controls in the old Android browser were never really a headline feature.

You know that scene in Miracle on 34th Street where it's proven in a court of law that Santa Claus exists and is present because a snarky lawyer dumped a bunch of mail on the judge's desk? Well, poor old St. Nick would probably have a much harder go of it proving that he is who he says he is in today's modern world, thanks to your newfangled technology that's all but viciously murdered the art of letter-writing.

It seems the rumors can't stop flowing out of Redmond. Last month, a representative from a Microsoft subsidiary in Czech Republic claimed that Office would be coming to Android in 2013. While the company distanced itself from those remarks pretty quickly, that may simply be a smokescreen to cover leaks, like the kind the Verge picked up, including a few screenshots of Office running on iOS, and information on the release for our little green buddy.

How many times have you gone through this: download a new ROM, backup all your apps with Titanium, reboot into recovery, perform a nandroid backup, wipe, install new ROM, boot and set up, then restore all your apps and data. Yeah, it's crazy. And it takes forever.

What if you could cut that time by a solid 20 or 30 minutes? Thanks to a new feature just incorporated in Titanium Backup, you can.

Generally speaking, I'm not a fan of live wallpapers. I love the idea, but in practice I've never found one that suits my taste and is compelling enough to stay on my device for more than a few minutes. That changed today with Cypher Cove's release of Audio Glow to the Play Store.

Audio Glow is actually a stand-alone app with a similarly named LWP companion which also launched today. The app is a music visualizer, which in itself is not so exciting.

Corroborating some pretty hard evidence of the physical Google Wallet card's existence we revealed last week, TechCrunch noticed this morning that a definite reference to that card has appeared on Wallet's official support site. More importantly, though, this confirms my own suspicions about the future of the Google Wallet app in light of the physical card: near-universal compatibility.

According to the support page, the new non-NFC version of the Wallet app will be compatible with any Android 2.3.3+ device, which is pretty much the vast majority of Android devices out there.

Earlier this week, we posted the slightly unfinished Android 4.2 keyboard with Swype-like gesture typing and pretty blue glow (which we since took down at Google's request). Thanks to the recent Android 4.2 system dump from the Nexus 4, some new goodies are now available for pre-4.2 versions of Android. Namely the release version of the keyboard and the new Clock app that Ron is already in love with.
