In the desktop world, there is virtually no end to the number of music and video managers out there. MediaMonkey was one of the not-quite-legendary-but-still-popular options that excelled for its ability to change tags and run custom scripts. Now, users of this program can sync to their phones without going through an extra program with the MediaMonkey for Android beta.

The beta APK is currently available over on Reddit, and obviously comes with some disclaimers, and you'll have to install the newest version of the Windows app to use it.

It's been a long time coming, hasn't it Canadian GSIII owners? You've sat back and watched Jelly Bean roll out to GSIIIs across the globe over the last several weeks, and there you were - forced to deal with ICS. It's a hard knock life.

But no more! Things are starting to look up - the 4.1.1 Jelly Bean update is now making its way to handsets all across Canada. GSIII owners on Bell, Telus, SaskTel, and Rogers should all be getting the OTA any time now - head into Settings > About phone to see if it's available on your device.

When last we left our heroes XBMC for Android, the group behind the open source multimedia manager had announced that it would be bringing support to the platform soon. Of course "soon" isn't a word that tweakers like to hear, so some enterprising fellows compiled the source code into an APK for your testing pleasure, with all the disclaimers that entails. Today, however, a more official app is being distributed by the team with a hefty 'beta' tag attached.

If there's one thing that can be said of Dolphin Browser, it's that the dev team behind it stays on top of things. There's a steady stream of updates to the browser all the time, bringing new features, performance improvements, and all that other fun stuff that people usually like when they're favorite apps get.

Today's update is no different, though it is a little more notable. First - and most importantly - v1.2 brings support for Android 4.2.

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

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.

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.

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.

Simply put, Falcon Pro is probably the best looking Twitter client I've ever seen.

Still stuck with an Epic 4G Touch (or stuck a relative with your old one)? If you've been holding off on flashing some of the previously leaked Jelly Bean builds for fear of stability or finality, Sextape has released what is rumored to be the final build that will go out as an over the air update some time in the near future.

Build FK23 can be downloaded here, and is relatively easy to flash.
