Getting To Know The Upcoming Gmail 4.2 - Revamped Attachments, Better Navigation, And More!

If you haven't heard, we've got an unreleased copy of Gmail 4.2. Yesterday we showed you the major new features: pinch zoom and swipe to archive/delete, and today we've made a few more discoveries we thought you'd like to know about.

[APK Teardown] Google Wallet's Next Big Features: Person To Person Money Transfers, And Paypal-Style Money Storage

It's time to go APK spelunking again. Today's target is Google Wallet!
