Amazon MP3 App Update Gives The UI Some Much-Needed Spit And Polish, Improved Speed, And Facebook Sharing

It's been nearly a year and a half since we last wrote about the Amazon MP3 app, because that's the last time the company did anything interesting with it.

LG Optimus F3Q With Slide-Out QWERTY Keyboard Leaked For T-Mobile Release

Alas poor QWERTY, I knew him, Horatio! A fellow of infinite texts, of most excellent data entry. Here hung those keys that I have tapped I know not how oft. Where be your Tweets now? Your emails? Your Google+ posts? Nowhere around here, that's for sure - the QWERTY slider phone has become rare in the last year or so, with only the Samsung Stratosphere II, the LG Enact, and a BlackBerry or two filling the once-swollen ranks.

[New App] Microsoft Releases TouchDevelop For Android, Makes Browser-Based Apps Easy To Develop On A Phone

The odds are against most people in the Android world having heard of TouchDevelop by Microsoft. From the start, it was designed to be used with a small touchscreen interface by hobbyists and intended to ease people into programming.

Word Lens Translation App Updated To v2.1.3 With Tablet Support

Wondering what that sign says, but you don't speak the lingo? You might want to figure it out – signs convey important information. Maybe it says "keep off the grass," but it could also say "high risk of electric shock." Word Lens can help with that by doing live translation of text using optical character recognition and the camera. It's neat, and the newest version adds support for tablets.
