Kaiser Permanente, the largest medical organization in the U.S., has released its official app into the Android Market. The app allows health plan members to access vital information, including medical records and prescription information, as well as the ability to make appointments and send messages to their doctor directly from their smartphone.

The information provided within the app gets quite detailed, as it offers full information about your medical history and past doctor appointments.

Like DB's previous wallpapers, V-Day HD is filled with customization options, including the ability to add pictures of your love into a frame atop the wine-filled table, crack the bubbly in a romantic location such as Paris, place a gift with a personalized message on the table, and so much more.

If there's one thing that the desktop world has that Android desperately needs, it's multiple user support. A shared Windows machine or a Mac both support multiple user profiles on a single device. While this isn't that big of a deal on phones, tablet users might find it unsettling passing around a shared device tied directly to their all-knowing Google account. Enter SwitchMe, an app to help alleviate the uncertainty. This root app allows users to boot into multiple profiles within a single ROM.

There's no shortage of weather apps in the Android Market - they're all pretty useful and give basically the same information. So how do you make one that stands out? If you ask OneLouder Apps, the same guys behind apps like Tweetcaster, Friendcaster, and BaconReader, they'd tell you to make it one of the most visually stunning apps in the Android Market. And that's exactly what they've done.

I am a big fan of Evernote, using it everyday to manage my to-do list and work on long-term projects. However, over the years this "simple" note-taking suite has expanded with an unwieldy number of features, making it somewhat difficult to manage. So, it is always nice to see an Evernote update for Android that just aims to make the service better without adding further bloat.

The recent update (version 3.5), downloadable from the Android Market, adds smart titles, quick saves, better layout of images, and a number of crucial bug fixes.

We've all heard the debates (or been involved in them) about Android malware. Some say it doesn't really exist and is only used as a "scare tactic." Others insist that it's a threat and is becoming more prominent.

Regardless of your personal feelings on the matter, Lookout Labs would have us believe that it finds thousands of threats everyday. In order to help visualize this claim, Lookout released a new app to the Market called Mobile Threat Tracker that shows, in almost real-time, detected infections on Lookout-protected devices across the globe.

Up next in my series of reviews centering on Adobe's Touch Apps is Collage, a nifty addition to the Touch App family that allows users to make quick, yet sophisticated mood boards on the go. For those not familiar with the term, a "mood board" is essentially a concentrated collection of images, notes, and other media that convey the overall concept, or mood, of a project, from photo shoots to graphical designs, to interior decorating projects.

Siri competitors for Android are a dime a dozen, but the latest alternative Evi may have the winning combination of a voice recognition engine that actually understands what you say and what (we hope) appears to be a natural language processor that can figure out what you want.

Unlike a standard search engine which performs keyword searches, Evi aims to answer your query with a specific response. So, for example, if want to know what the capital of France is, you would ask Evi "what is the capital of France?" and Evi would respond "Paris".

It has been two weeks since Android 4.0.3 started rolling out to the Transformer Prime, which made it the first tablet to officially receive the update. With a new version of Android, be it incremental or not, comes new and improved GApps, most of which we've already taken a close look at.

In Android 4.0.3, however, a new Gmail feature has been uncovered by ComputerWorld that is noticeably missing in its 4.0.2 brother: experiments.
