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.

Do you find yourself constantly adjusting the volume of your phone's ringtone, or wishing that the annoying buzz of your phone's vibration could be toned down a little? Looking to solve all of your ringtone/vibration woes (while making sure you don't miss a call), Michael Pardo has introduced RingDimmer to the Android Market. The app adjusts vibration intensity and ringer volume based on ambient noise, ensuring that you never miss a call, and never have to be disrupted by an inappropriately loud ring tone.

Screencast Video Recorder has been a favorite of ours since its release, and has been featured in our own Top Android Apps Every Rooted User Should Know About and Best Of 2011 posts. Needless to say, we think this app is top notch, and I'm sure tons of other Android users would agree. Not only does it offer video capture with many features, but it has some pretty nice screenshot functionality as well.

Splashtop's remote desktop client is one of the most popular apps of its kind, boasting over 5 million mobile users, and optimization for Tegra 2 tablets.

The app allows users surprisingly sophisticated control of their desktop computer from anywhere with an internet (or 3G/4G) connection, providing access to PowerPoint and Keynote presentations, Microsoft Outlook, 3D games, full computer browsing, and various other software not available for Android.

Modoohut's exDialer application, an extremely light-weight, easy-to-use, theme-able dialer app, brings a lot to the table as yet another alternative to Android's stock dialer, especially considering that it is totally free.

At A Glance

Though exDialer's theming options are impressive, the default theme itself (inspired by the famous MiUI ROM) is gorgeous, and I haven't exchanged it for another skin since first downloading the app weeks ago.

The app itself is exceedingly easy to use, and has a footprint of a mere 1.35MB, making it lightweight.

This is the latest in our Weekend Poll series. For last week's, see If Android Ceased To Exist, What OS Would Your Next Device Be?

Antivirus apps are big business on Android. Just run a search on our site and you can see there are tons of big-name apps for our beloved OS that help protect users from malware, track lost devices, and manage privacy (among other things). Millions have downloaded such apps, and sometimes paid fairly large sums (in relation to other apps, anyway) for the protection they offer.

There's no shortage of antivirus, antimalware, or other forms of anti-bad stuff apps in the Market. In fact, we've look taken at a ton of them. If none of those could handle your list of wants from a mobile security app, have a look a Comodo Mobile Security - it brings a few useful features all together into a single app.

Like you would expect from Comodo, it's first and foremost an antivirus/antimalware.

If you like to keep a watchful eye on your battery level (who doesn't?), then you probably have some sort of widget to that lets you know how much juice your phone has left. That's great, but you have to navigate away from any foreground application in order to check the battery status. Enter T.E.A.M. Battery Bar, a new app that displays a customizable bar at the top (or bottom) of the screen indicating how much battery is left .
