Good news for you independent bloggers out there! WordPress just issued a small update to its mobile app. The biggest change is that you can now add featured images to a post. Featured images, of course, are treated differently in WordPress entries than in-line images and are often used as thumbnails, so it's been a bit of a problem that the app hasn't made it easy to add them until now.
OfficeSuite Pro is one of the more powerful collections of productivity software for Android (and Cameron's personal favorite). Today it's getting just a bit better by adding several new features, including the ability to print via Google Cloud Print, convert text documents to PDF files, spell-check, and compatibility with SkyDrive.
Here's a complete list of what's new:
6.5 New Features:
- Print - print documents with Google Cloud Print or previously installed third party printer
- Convert to PDF - convert your text documents to PDF files
- Spell-check (based on Google ICS spell-check)
- New supported formats - opening of XLSM, PPTM, PPSM and DOCM formats
- Thumbnail preview in Slideshow mode
- Animated Slideshow -support for animated slideshows
- Embedded images & charts (in Excel module)
- Now compatible with Microsoft SkyDrive
- WiFi Direct support
Although, some of the new additions may be having some problems.
Just days after we learned of an expanded international availability, another interesting bit of news may be on the way for the Nexus 7.
According to Paul O'Brien of MoDaCo, a "very well placed insider" has indicated that a 3G-connected variant of the device is on the horizon, expected to be ready for shipping "in around six weeks."
If you've been holding out on buying the Nexus 7 due to its WiFi-only capability, this may be the news you've been waiting for.

iMactablet have popped up and oh god, HTC, please don't.
Over the past year or so, my tablet has become my primary mobile device, replacing my phone for most things. However, while I appreciate the bigger screen and better battery life my tablet has over my phone, there are still things that I must use my phone for, like calling and texting.
I have a Bluetooth keyboard connected to my tablet a lot of the time, especially if I'm sending a lot of emails or taking notes for a review.
Several weeks ago, Zombies, Run! gave our own Eric Ravenscraft a much-needed trip outside the house while he reviewed the unique workout/game hybrid. After using the application for several days, he came away impressed with it, though questioned its $8 price tag. If you share his sentiments, now may be the time to splurge and grab the download, as the price is down to just $3 until tomorrow.
For those who may not already know, Zombies, Run!
It looks like the recently-rumored LG Intuition for Verizon could be coming to fruition within the next week. According to some leaked shots from Verizon's equipment guide, the overly-large device should hit Big Red's website on September 6th, with retail availability from the 10th.
For those who may be unaware, the Intuition is Verizon's version of the oddly proportioned LG Optimus Vu. Featuring a 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4, 1GB RAM, 8MP rear shooter, Android 4.0.x, and 4:3 5" 1024x768 display, the Intuition is the device designed for folks with big and hands and even bigger heads.
Have you heard?! Apple now says the Galaxy S III is infringing on its patents. Woe is us!
Except, this is a.) completely unsurprising, and b.) not really important in the grand scheme of things. Yesterday, Reuters reported that Apple had tacked on the Galaxy S III (including the Verizon version specifically, for whatever reason), the Note 10.1, and the original Galaxy Note to its upcoming California lawsuit against Samsung. And yes, they'll probably add the Galaxy Note II just as soon as Samsung gets around to releasing it here in the US.
All Wi-Fi versions of Samsung's Galaxy Tab series should have ICS by now, but, as always, carrier connected versions of the devices are left out in the cold. T-Mobile is the only carrier thus far to break that mold when it updated the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus earlier this month.
In a move that should make other carriers feel bad about themselves, T-Mobile has now made available ICS for the Galaxy Tab 10.1, as well.
