Facebook For Android Updated To V1.5.4; Now Allows You To... Use Facebook Without Force Closes

You may remember a couple of days ago when Facebook for Android received an update and, for many users (myself included, on all 3 of my Android devices), became a blue-tinted cavalcade of force-closes. Well, it seems that the Facebook team took notice and pushed an update out that (hopefully) remedies the situation for everyone. It now seems to be working flawlessly (well...from the stability standpoint) on both my EVO and Nook Color.

Qik Video Connect Finally Lets Android And iOS Users Video Chat With Each Other

As much as I love Android, I do have friends and family that are dedicated iPhone users. There has always been a barrier between the two platforms, but that is slowly changing with things like cross-platform games and now, thanks to Qik Video Connect, video chat.

Aside from being cross-platform, Qik Video Connect offers several other nice features, like video mail. If you can't connect live with someone and you just have to show them something, then video mail is the only way to go, right?

HoneyReader Is An Android Feed Reader Made Specifically For Honeycomb

While browsing the XOOM xda forum today, I saw this announcement of HoneyReader, a new application built specifically with Honeycomb tablets in mind. Because it doesn't have to support pre-Honeycomb versions of the OS or small-sized phone screens altogether, the authors concentrated on making it a great tablet experience, and I must say, their first take is pretty good.

HoneyReader uses the native to Honeycomb Fragments API that on the surface translates to fluid and flexible UI elements that can divide the screen into separately scrollable independent areas with their own lifecycles.

[Review] Taskos Is A Simple Way To Suck Less At Doing Things

As a person, I'm generally less reliable than a software update schedule from Samsung. That's why I must rely on my phone to tell me to do things. My current weapon of choice for this responsibility-shifting device dependency is Taskos because it's simple and, if I'm going through the trouble of not remembering things for myself, I sure don't want to waste time while (not?) doing it. Yeah...

Taskos is, in my humble opinion, the best to-do list app yet.
