What We Use: The Apps, Tools, Devices, And Other Stuff Cameron Can't Do Without

Last week, we gave you a glimpse into what David uses: his favorite gadgets, accessories, apps, and all the other tech junk that he doesn't go a day without. Now it's my turn. With this series, you'll see how different each member of the AP team is when it comes to how we use our gear, which is one of the best things about Android: it's versatile.

Since David's already done the legwork of explaining what "What we use" is all about, I'm just going to jump right in.

What am I carrying around?

Phone: Samsung Galaxy Nexus

What it's running: CyanogenMod 10 Nightlies with ClockworkMod Touch Recovery 

I love my Galaxy Nexus.

What's Really New In Google Maps 6.12: A '3D' Button, An 'Experiments' Section, And More!

Hello and welcome to a new feature! I'm going to start calling this "What's Really New," the series where we do more than just post a change log with the canned screenshots when something important gets updated. We're going in-depth (as usual). We'll be ripping apart APKs, doing full side-by-side comparisons, and, hopefully, letting you know about all the cool new stuff before it comes out.

Previous experiments in this area have been a stunning success. We told you all about Google+ events before it was releasedcalled Gift card support in the Play Store and, while we neglected to mention it, Google Maps Timeline was also dead-on.

Stock Android Isn't Perfect: These Are The Things I Can't Stand About Jelly Bean

In my reviews, I frequently abuse and pick apart TouchWiz, Sense, and MotoBlur. I point out flaws, say "that's stupid," and wonder what the heck was going on when someone approved whatever half-baked change they've come up with. A lot of the UIs shipping on phones today are bad.

But it's not just the 3rd-party skins. Stock Android isn't perfect either, and that's what we're here to talk about today. Jelly Bean has all sorts of confusing user interfaces, weird bugs, things that don't make any sense, and things that desperately need polishing.

I criticize because I care - that goes for Sense, TouchWiz, and MotoBlur too.

What David Uses: The Apps, Tools, Devices, And Other Stuff I Can't Do Without

We've been ruminating on the idea of a series like this for a while at Android Police, and today, we're finally taking the plunge. Want to know the Android apps, tools, and hardware the editors of Android Police use day to day? Now you can! I mean, if you want to know. We won't be offended if you don't. Promise.
