Koush's Latest App Is Carbon (Not That Carbon) - A Free App Backup Solution For Google Drive And More

If you've even dabbled in the Android mod scene, you know Koushik "Koush" Dutta. He's the chap who made ClockworkMod recovery and several other handy tools for advanced users. His latest app is Carbon, which may or may not be sarcastically named after the famously postponed Twitter app. (The app icon is a trollface - we'll leave the interpretation up to you.) The function is simple: back up both your local APKs and their associated app data.

Tapatalk HD Leaves Beta, Is On One-Day Only Sale For $0.99 In The Play Store

Back in late December, Tapatalk HD beta left the forum-only download arrangement and made its way into the Play Store as a free download. Now, the beta period has ended, the aforementioned freebie is no more, and the first stable client is available.

For those who may not be familiar with Tapatalk, it's essentially a way to natively interact with many forums from your Android device. This prevents you from having to deal with the cumbersome (and not-touch-friendly) interface of most message boards.

[Roundup] The Very Best Apps From 2012

As promised, we've got another set of roundups for you this month. This time, though, we're not just looking at last month's best apps and games – we've got a short list of the very best apps and games from all of 2012.

To be sure, poring over all the apps we've covered in the past year was an arduous task. We've picked three entries for each category (in no particular order), but there were certainly more than four new apps worth talking about.

Flipboard Updated With Daydream Support For Android 4.2

Flipboard's release last summer was hotly anticipated to say the least. A recent update to utilize the screen real estate of Android tablets bumped the app up another notch, and today's update (to version 1.9.18) puts the icing on the cake. As of today, Flipboard has Daydream functionality for Android 4.2.

Daydream, when it was first introduced, seemed kind of boring (okay, you can look at a lovely animated gradient while charging).

Dropbox App Updated To Version 2.3 With Better Photo Management And UI Tweaks

Dropbox is the clear king when it comes to consumer cloud storage solutions. The app has gone through a number of significant overhauls during its life on the Android platform, and it's a solid experience these days. However, there's always more work to be done, and today's update brings several welcome improvements to how photos are handled, as well as various fixes and UI tweaks.

  • Easily share several photos at once

  • Lots of other little tweaks and bug fixes

Dropbox added photo sync last year, and it's a fairly nice service if you don't need a lot of configuration.

Google Releases Chrome Beta Channel For Android

Ready to try the latest version of Chrome for Android, but don't want to wait for the updates to hit the stable channel? No worries – Google just released an official beta channel for Chrome for Android. This new channel should "release early and release often" according to the Chrome blog, so you'll always have the latest build smokin' out of Google's servers.

Of course, "beta" comes at a cost – sometimes it's at the cost of stability, sometimes it's at the cost of borked features.

[New App] Fitocracy Makes Its Way To Android, Puts A Little RPG In Your Workout Routine

Somewhere within the depths of the internet are entire subcultures of people who do things. Among those people are ones who like to work out – you know, it's their thing. Their schtick, even. Some of these guys actually happen to cross over into geekdom at one point or another. Crazy, I know. Somewhere along the lines, these fitness-nut/geek hybrids got together and created a game. And a social network.

Facebook Pages Manager For Android Finally Installable In US, UK, And Everywhere Else The Play Store Is Available

A few days ago, Facebook quietly released its Pages Manager app for Android to the Play Store. The app, which had been making iOS-toting page managers' lives easier for quite some time, was a welcome addition, save for one thing: it could only be installed in Australia, Canada, and New Zealand, leaving US users in the dark.

It appears that's changed today. The Pages Manager app, in an update too small to warrant a change log, opened up to those in the US.

[CES 2013] Redbox Instant Set To Launch By March, According To Verizon CEO

Hi, my name is Eric Ravenscraft and I'm an addict. I have a weakness for trying out new online media services. I've signed up and, where applicable, paid for Spotify, Rdio, MOG, Rhapsody, Pandora, Last.fm, Jamendo, Grooveshark, Netflix, Hulu Plus, Epix, Crackle, Amazon Instant Video, Google Play, and virtually every other movie and music streaming service on the internet. So it bugs me that I haven't yet been invited to add Redbox Instant to my collection of collections.
