Toshiba Excite 7.7 Jelly Bean Update Rolling Out Now

Given Toshiba's track record with Android updates, I thought I'd never get to write this post. Alas, here it is – Android 4.1.1 is officially rolling out to the Excite 7.7. At first blush, it looks like Toshiba did a good job on this one. It actually uses the new "hybrid UI" (like on the Nexus 7), which leads to a much better experience on smaller slates like the 7.7.

The update clocks in at a cool 348MB, so be prepared to wait for just a bit to grab this Jelly Bean goodness.

Tapatalk HD Beta For Tablets Now On The Play Store

Back in October, you may remember that we reported Tapatalk HD for tablets was a thing, that said thing was in beta, and you could download it. Of course, like any off-Play Store beta, getting updates meant downloading a new version whenever one became available, putting it on your device, and all other sorts of messiness no one really likes to deal with. As of today, though, Tapatalk HD for Tablets Beta is on the Play Store, free of charge.

CyanogenMod 10.1 Nightlies Come To The Samsung Vibrant

Own a Samsung Vibrant? Or, probably more correctly, recently pawned off a Samsung Vibrant to a relative and / or child, and want to make them hate it less? Good news! CyanogenMod 10.1 nightlies (based on Android 4.2 AOSP) are officially out for the Vibrant now, and you can get them at the CM website.

Definition: A "nightly" is a bleeding edge release that is built on a daily basis, usually at night after a full day's worth of new code has been committed.

Google Extends Free Gmail Calling For US And Canadian Users Once Again, Through 2013

If you use Google Voice, or simply make the occasional outgoing call via Gmail, Google's got some great news for you. The service is going to continue to be free throughout 2013 for users in the U.S. and Canada! International callers will still have the same rates applied. In short, nothing is really changing, and that's a good thing.

When Google first introduced the ability to make phone calls in Gmail, it said the service would be free through at least the end of 2010.

Samsung Drops Jelly Bean Source For Verizon Galaxy S III

While the day after Christmas is rarely an exciting one in terms of tech news - aside from the length / level of disgruntledness of return lines around the US - we do have a tidbit for developers this morning. The Verizon Galaxy S III, recently updated to Android 4.1, now has matching source code. Samsung released the Jelly Bean-based source this morning (software version LK3), and you can get it at the source link (pun very much intended on this boring day) below.

[New App] Kii Keyboard Is An Input Alternative With Tons Of Customization

Google has really gotten the stock Android keyboard spruced up in recent versions of the OS. Of course, it's still a limited experience lacking in the bells and whistles of some third-party solutions. Speaking of bells and whistles, the new Kii Keyboard has more tweaks and settings than you'll believe.

Kii takes some of the most popular features from the established keyboards. It has swipe input like the Swype keyboard, word prediction like SwitfKey, and a split layout for tablets like you get in several other apps.

Don Bluth Insists On Making Your Life Weirder By Releasing The Laserdisc Classic 'Space Ace' On Android

Don Bluth... What happened? You had such a good run. You made film history by actually giving Disney a run for it's money with Secret of NIMH, An American Tail, and The Land Before Time. They were classics! But then Rock-A-Doodle happened. Then Thumbelina. Then...lord forgive me for speaking it's name...A Troll in Central Park. The decline was quick and painful. Before the movies started getting weird, though, Dragon's Lair came out and revolutionized the laser disc gaming industry (no seriously).
