The team behind the awesome GO suite of apps have brought the functionality and style of GO Launcher to Android-powered tablets everywhere today (as long as they're running 3.0+), bringing GO Launcher HD out of beta. You may remember our beta coverage earlier this month, in which we got a sneak peak at GO's tablet launcher, and it looks like little has changed. For a launcher that aims to be minimally intrusive yet offer a ton of functionality, however, that isn't necessarily a bad thing.

Sure, Hulu may still be struggling with supporting even a majority of Android devices, but who needs that mess when the CW has an app? Well, yes, people who want to watch shows by any of the other networks, but now all of the CW's top shows are available on (some of) your phones and tablets in their full-episode glory.

It's not quite the complete library experience we've all been hoping for that some shows occasionally get on Hulu or Netflix, but all of the 12 shows available come with 5 episodes each which, we assume, will be the five most recent episodes unless a show is on hiatus, as is the typical custom with most major streaming sources.

Those who know me or follow me on Google+ know that I love Mass Effect. Actually, that may be a bit of an understatement; I've had 4 characters that played every single mission and side-mission in both the first and second game, and I just finished the trilogy a few days ago. And now, I have a new way to show my love: with a new Mass Effect 3 live wallpaper (LWP) from NVIDIA and BioWare.

When organizing an event, it's proper to send out some form of notification (otherwise, no one will know that you're having an event and, thus, not show up). Some people still use that old-school mail thing that involves paper, stamps, and some other stuff - but c'mon, let's be honest here - this is the 21st century and we're geeks. It's a whole lot easier to grab your mobile and shoot out a few texts from the comfort of your couch, albeit highly informal.

Titanium Backup, a widely popular backup solution for root users, got an update today to version 4.8.4, adding a handful of improvements and functions, not the least of which being support for Box.net backup syncing.

If you're wondering why Box.net support is significant, the reason is this: until now, mobile users have had little use for the cloud service's free 50GB account option, which caps the size of uploads at 100MB, and is only compatible with mobile devices (meaning there's no desktop syncing capability).

If you've thought about using GrooVe IP to give this whole VoIP (voice-over-IP) thing a try but were reluctant to drop a five-spot for an app that may or may not ever use again, we have good news. GrooVe IP Lite just landed in the Play Store, and it offers nearly all of the same features as its $5 brother for, well, nothing.

1 2 3

There are only a few minor things that are not available in the Lite version of the app:

  • Calls over a mobile data connection not just Wi-Fi
  • Native dialer integration
  • Proximity sensor support
  • Change sign in status or sign in invisible

If none of those sound like features you'd want out of a VoIP app, then GrooVe IP Lite should fit the bill perfectly.
