I have a confession to make: I'm a terrible speller. I know what you're thinking, "how can someone who writes for a living be bad at spelling?" Honestly, if it wasn't for spellcheck, I probably wouldn't have this job right now. So, thanks for spellcheck, um, spellcheck inventor!

Considering how many times a day Chrome has to correct stupid spelling mistakes (like mine), I think Google realized an intervention was due.

Let's speak some truth here right out of the gate: weather apps are a dime a dozen in the Play Store. With the volume of apps designed to tell users the weather, it's really difficult to put out something that stands out in the crowd. Fortunately for LevelUp Studio, it has quite a bit of experience in that field thanks to its incredibly popular app Beautiful Widgets. If you're into informative, yet minimal apps, then the company's newest offering, Bright Weather, should be right up your alley.

Square wants to do more than swipe cards using your phone's headphone jack, but it's giving up on one of its other ideas. Square Wallet has been discontinued, and the app has been pulled from Google Play. The company will instead focus on Square Order, a way to place orders at local businesses, then pick them up.

Sometimes you just don't want to hear everything people on your Twitter timeline are saying, especially if you follow a lot of accounts. Also, some people just get annoying. This is why third-party Twitter clients have long included muting. Now Twitter itself is embracing the idea with official support coming to its apps and website.

For some reason, plenty of us just hate carrying credit cards around, and we cannot wait for the day when we're free from this burden. I can see our ancestors now, wondering what the fuss is all about. Not too long ago, you balanced your checkbook and you liked it. Before that, there wasn't a way to avoid walking around with a wallet stuffed with cash and a pocket loaded with coins.

There's a new app from Microsoft on Android. Are you excited? Well, only a select few of you will remain so. The new arrival is Dynamics CRM for tablets, which joins the previously released CRM for phones. Look Microsoft, it's not that we don't appreciate the attention you're paying to Android, but why is this a separate app?

Dynamics CRM for tablets does the same thing the phone counterpart does.

The Amazon Appstore Android App received an update to version 9 earlier this month that introduced carrier billing. This feature will enable some users to add app purchases to their mobile bill at the end of the month rather than supply Amazon with a credit or debit card. The option is only available in select countries.

Unfortunately, that's all we know about the feature. Its addition doesn't come as a surprise in and of itself, given the company's movements in that direction over the past few years, but we haven't come across any details.

Next month will be the two-year anniversary of Gmail becoming the most widely used email service on the planet. While it remains the uncontested champion, the Gmail app for Android struck its own accomplishment last week as it became the first conventional app in the Play Store to reach 1 billion downloads. Technically, the Google Play services package crossed the same mark back in January, but it is automatically installed on any device equipped with the Play Store and running Android 2.2 or higher.
