I have seen a lot of live wallpapers and, truth be told, I'm generally not that impressed most of the time. Every once in a while, though, one comes along that is just so nice that I want to share it with everyone. This is one of those times.

Photile Live Wallpaper creates a LWP from any existing image. It adds a level of complexity to the images, while not overdoing it (a difficult task, I might add).

I can't tell you the amount of times that I've been on a video call with someone and suddenly realized that there needed to be a third, or even fourth, person involved. Fortunately, the folks over at Fring are there to save the day... sort of.  You see, they have this great new feature called Group Video Calling, but it's in a limited beta right now.

All cynicism aside, this is a pretty cool feature for those that actually use video calling a lot.

The same team that brought us GO SMS, GO Launcher, GO Weather, and a figurative myriad of other goodies are back again - this time with an offering for all the sports fans out there. The aptly titled GO Score brings almost real-time soccer and basketball scores to your mobile, with a multitude of others sports in the works.

GO Score offers some really outstanding features, such as user defined audio/vibration notifications, game analysis, current and past scores, odds from multiple sources, and live chat with no prior registration required.

This probably isn't going to be nearly as exciting as the title might lead you to believe - though it's good news nonetheless.

Techfrom10's Samsung Galaxy S was accidentally given access to the test Android Market via an OTA update, and they stumbled upon some goodies while using it. The Market itself has undergone no noticeable changes aside from the addition of the "Content Rating" information publishers are now asked to include as part of their submissions to the Market, so there's not a lot to see on that end.

According to its Twitter account, car rental company Zipcar appear to be working on an Android app. This is pretty good news for Android owners out there that use Zipcar for their transportation needs, as an iOS app has been available for quite some time.

That means you'll be able to find a Zipcar, book it, and unlock it - all with your Android phone. If you live in San Francisco or another big Zipcar town, you'll know just how useful this will be.

As a direct result of Amazon releasing its (awesome) Cloud Player, music streaming service mSpot has upped its free storage to 5GB. mSpot works almost exactly like Amazon Cloud Player – upload your music, download the app, and stream to your heart's content. Unlike Amazon, however, the most storage that you can get from mSpot is 40GB ($3.99/month) with no plans in between the basic (5GB) and premium (40GB). On the upside, you don't have to shell out the annual fee right away - paying $4/month rather than prepaying for a year could attract some consumers to the service.

Finding and buying a house can be an overwhelming experience, but fortunately for us, real estate website Trulia have released an Android app to aid the process. The app has some nice features, like using GPS to search nearby areas (you can also manually enter locations). It also allows you to save your favorite places, shows full pictures of homes, helps find open houses and saves them to your calendar, and even utilizes voice recognition – all you have to do is announce the city and number of bed/bathrooms that you’re looking for.

When the Nintendo 64 emulator first came out, many users were overcome with joy - it was the first and only emulator for Android, and nostalgia was overwhelming. However, a short time after, N64oid simply disappeared. Worried threads popped up around the Internet, and with today's disappearance of PSX4Droid, we couldn't help but wonder whether the two incidents are related.

You can breathe easy though - N64oid is safe, at least according to a few people who received responses from the developer regarding the disappearance.
