Total Commander Updated To v2, Brings Drag-And-Drop, Built-In Media Player, And More

I've noticed something: people who love Total Commander really love Total Commander. Like, they won't even consider another file manager most of the time. After seeing TC's extensive feature list, though, I can kind of see why -  this thing's chock-full of useful features. And with v2 - which was released as a beta in early September - it just got a lot more powerful.

Version 2 brings a slew of new stuff:

  • Drag&Drop files to other panel and to sub-folders
  • Built-in media player with equalizer, play queue, background playing, full screen video in landscape mode, stream from LAN and WebDAV plugins (they need to be updated too)
  • Improved stability of background operations
  • Select a range of files/folders with a long tap on an icon
  • Copy to external SD-Card on Android 3.0 or later even without root rights
  • Multi-Window support for Samsung Galaxy N7000, N7100 and N8000
  • Set permissions and owner/group for selected files
  • Custom scroll thumb also in the editor to scroll long files more quickly
  • Context menu now allows to add FLAC files to internal media player

The update's available now in the Store - hit the widget to give a try.

[New App] NeroKwik Wants To Be Your Cross-Platform Photo Manager/Sharing App

Start with a base of Google+'s Instant Upload, mix with about three cups of Instagram (sans filters, of course), add a dash of personal Pinterest and what you'll get is a photo sharing app from Nero that serves 3-5 platforms. The company that you best know for including a free trial of something DVD-related on any computer you bought in the last decade has released a free Android app that automatically uploads any picture you take on your phone to its central servers and makes it available on any device you have the app installed on.

After Hitting 9-10 Week Shipping Estimate In US, 8GB Nexus 4 Goes Out Of Stock Yet Again

In a sight all too familiar to would-be Nexus owners this morning, the Nexus 4 8GB model has once again been listed as "out of stock" on the Play Store. This comes after Google opened up a second round of Nexus sales, which were basically glorified pre-orders, particularly when it came to the 8GB model, which quickly hit a 5-6 week shipping estimate.

Earlier this week, that estimate stretched all the way to 9-10 weeks, and presumably anything past 10 was the tipping point.

Full Falcon Pro Twitter Client Now In The Play Store, And It's Even Better Than The Widget

Back in mid-August, we highlighted a gorgeous Twitter widget called Falcon. There was a lot to like a Falcon as a widget, but it didn't take long to realize it wasn't living up to its full potential - it needed to be a full app. So that's exactly what Joaquim Vergès - Falcon's developer - did. And it looks fantastic.

Getting To Know Android 4.2, Part 2: The Revamped Gallery

It's time for another installment of Getting To Know Android, the series where we show you every polished pixel in Google's latest Android update. Today's target is the Gallery, which, in a rare APK Teardown whiff, is not white. I have no idea what was going on with our crazy 4.2 alpha version, but the Gallery is still black, and the icon is still the same. Sorry about that. There is lots of new stuff to talk about, though.

Yet Another Android 4.2 Bug: Weird In-App Transparency Glitch On Secondary User Accounts

Earlier today, we noticed a bug report for a very strange issue with multiple user accounts on the Nexus 7. Apparently, certain applications are displaying the underlying screen - be it the wallpaper, app tray, or the Play Store (depending on where the app was launched from) - through the foreground app. But here's the kicker: it's only happening on secondary accounts. Yeah, it's confusing and strange.

There's also a Reddit thread that confirms this is happening, and it seems to only be affecting apps that call on some sort of transparency.
