Professional musicians, you are free to sit this one out. DJ space is probably not going to fill your needs. Unless you need to play god, turning the planets themselves into musical instruments as you conduct a cosmic electronic orchestra with naught but your fingertips. If that's something you've needed, then yes DJ space will serve your purposes quite nicely.

FL Studio this is not, however as the saying goes, "If you want to mix sweet tracks from scratch, you must first invent the universe." The app functions very similarly to Garage Band in that you select from pre-recorded loops of music and assemble them into tracks.

Google has just launched a new app that brings a charitable side to the Play Store, making it easier than ever to – in Google's words – "do a little. Change a lot."

The basic idea behind the app (which, for now, is limited to the US) is that users can donate $1 at a time to a daily project such as saving cheetahs, bringing clean water to those in need, or providing a roof for school children.

Facebook has been on a real push to take over users' phones as of late, with Facebook Home, Chat Heads, and updates to its official and Messenger apps. Today, it goes a step further, offering full, free voice calls to US users. This is the same feature that rolled out to Canadian users late last month.

The service requires Facebook Messenger to be installed (naturally) – to initiate a call, simply head into your contact list, open a message, and hit the "I" in the top-right corner.

Do you like context-sensitive action bars? Slide-out navigation menus? Cards? Well, LinkedIn's Android app just got a pretty significant UI refresh today, and it has all of those things. The app was undeniably in need of a facelift, and this new update looks pretty fantastic to my eyes.

Looks aside, version 3.0 of LinkedIn for Android adds a slew of new update stream features that were sorely lacking in previous versions - you can now invite, follow, like, share, and comment on update stream content directly from the feed.

ES File Explorer received its first major update in a while this morning, bringing the popular management app to version 3.0. The major change? A brand-new UI that isn't really Holo per se, but does incorporate a slide-out navigation bar and swipeable tabs.

Here's the complete changelog:

V3.0

  • New UI
  • Fast Access(Press menu)
  • Multiple Windows
  • Send Files By WiFi
  • Gestures(Drag,Zoom,Slide)
  • Classic Theme
  • New Picture,Root Explorer,Tools,...

While there certainly isn't any lack of competition when it comes to file management utilities on Android, ES File Explorer has remained one of the most popular such apps for quite some time now, and a UI refresh was probably high on users' lists at this point.

If you're a musician, aspiring beatmaster, or just really love dinking around with a digital keyboard, I have great news: FL Studio Mobile is finally here for Android. Device compatibility seems decent, but I don't have too many tablets around to check with - I do know it's compatible with the Nexus 7, and a fair number of recent Android phones (oddly, not the HTC One).

For the rest of you, yes, you read the title correctly - FL Studio Mobile costs $20.

While Yahoo may not shout "relevance!" from the treetops on an Android blog, the struggling web giant's email service is still hugely popular in the US. Its Android mail client, until now, hasn't explicitly supported tablets. A new update today changes that, and the end product is surprisingly decent-looking (certainly prettier than Outlook.com's most recent update).

While the UI layout isn't revolutionary, it is fairly attractive and clean, something I think we can all appreciate in an email client.

There really is no other app out on Android as robust as Chainfire's DSLR Controller when it comes to... controlling your DSLR camera. The $8 app - which already had over 10,000 downloads and a boatload of control features - just got a whole lot better this morning with a major update that should have the app's fans absolutely ecstatic. The mile-long changelog includes tons of fixes and improvements, but the new feature list is impressive on its own.

When it comes to aftermarket keyboards, we're big fans of SwiftKey. The prediction engine is second to none, Flow's gesture typing is full-on awesome, and you can customize it to look however you want. Honestly, what more could you want from a keyboard? It's things like this that have made SK a hit with users around the world.

Given that sort of global success, the folks at Swiftkey compiled a blog post with some fun facts about how users in different regions use the keyboard.
