Whether you're out to find a way to limit data usage or just want complete control over your device's data connection (or both!), then DroidWall is the perfect app for you. With wireless carriers doing away with unlimited data plans and others throttling, more people have to worry about hitting data caps. If you're still one of the lucky few with unlimited data and are merely looking for more control, this app could still be the answer.
You might remember mention of a new AT&T service called Toggle last month, a service which promised to allow enterprise users to access corporate email, calendars and contacts securely from whatever Android device they choose to purchase, while separately maintaining their personal data. AT&T's official Toggle app hit the Android Market today, heralding the beginning of the service, and bringing hugely useful functionality to enterprise users concerned with keeping their business and personal activities separate.
ADWLauncher EX, one of the most popular launcher replacements on the Market, has received a major update just in time for the app's birthday, and Google's 10 Billion app download celebration, which is set to bring 10 apps a day to the Market for just $0.10 each over the next 10 days. ADWLauncher EX is set to be one of the promoted apps, so new buyers should hold off until it appears in the promotion.
This edition focuses only on new tablet apps or ones that added Honeycomb support. Regular apps and games are coming soon.
First things first - if you're easily offended or recently had your appendix removed, with stitches that could come apart from excessive laugher, stop reading right now, hit the Back button, and erase the title from your memory. Cool? Alright.
So, a few weeks back, an app called "Dick" showed up in the Market, only to be quickly banned by Google (what a dick move, eh?). We called it the most WTF app to ever hit Android, and Google seems to be in agreement.
Yesterday, a Google representative confirmed that the upcoming Verizon Galaxy Nexus will not support Google Wallet, Google's NFC payment service. The news was disappointing - it is a Google phone after all, but understandable to a degree, since Verizon Wireless is part of the competing Isis consortium, which also partners with AT&T and T-Mobile.
Verizon Wireless, however, today posted a statement and wants everyone to know that it isn't blocking Google Wallet (they actually say "Verizon does not block applications" - orly?).

With its debut onto the Android Market a couple of weeks ago, Nordstrom made it easier than ever to find the designer clothing you've been searching for.
With this nifty little app you can browse product lines, get personalized product recommendations, and even make purchases right from your mobile device. Not only that, but you can check availability in nearby stores, track in-store events, create wish lists, and share it all with your friends.
The Android Market certainly doesn't have a lack of group chat-messaging clients, but it appears that Yahoo is ready to throw its hat into the ring away. Separate from the Messenger app (which has been available on Android for quite some time), Hub uses text messages over a data connection - meaning that you won't incur any text messaging charges from using it. Unfortunately, your friends who don't have the client installed will, and in fact they may not be able to use it at all.
