Google Currents is not the only Android app the company updated today as many first-party apps saw relatively minor updates through the Play Store this afternoon. Basically, the next time you check your app list be prepared to wait on those updates to download.

With college football nearly over and the NFL ending just a month or so afterwards, pigskin fans are... oh, wait. This is the other kind of football. Sega's Football Manager franchise has long enabled obsessive compulsive soccer fans to live out their somewhat sedate dreams of managing a pro club. It looks like the developer is giving the handheld versions the same yearly release cycle that the console and PC games enjoy - as well as a nice price bump up to $9.99.

Before NFC and Android Beam (or as Samsung like to call it, S Beam), there was Bump - an application that users share images, contacts, and apps by touching their phones together. However, Bump was pretty limited in the types of files it could transfer. If you wanted to send a document, zip file, or something similar, you were just out of luck (or forced to use email).

The Bump team heard your cries, and has been hard a work on a version of the app that supports file transfers.

The limitation of Google's app, of course, is that it only recognizes songs from the Play Store - though that's still a substantial library. Hit up the link below to grab it.

As if you needed another reason to hate the very concept of Airpush ads in Android apps, there is now a lawsuit alleging that these ads have been used to bilk consumers out of some real cash. The class-action complaint, filed in U.S. District Court of Colorado takes aim at developer GoLive Mobile and the Airpush ad network. If the claims are accurate, there has been some seriously seedy stuff going on.

Vocre, a voice and text translator that won audience choice in TechCrunch's Disrupt, came to Android today, bringing with it a promising challenger to Google's own Translate app and a "tabletop UI" meant specifically for extended conversations with those on either side of the language barrier.

As shown in the video above, Vocre's interface is exceedingly simple. Users need only select languages and genders, then record their message, check for accuracy, and let the app do the rest.

Dear Android game developers: always use the Play Store for those massive extra downloads. Rockstar has got the message. They've returned the open-world classic Grand Theft Auto: Vice City to the Play Store after a few initial hiccups, and now there's no pokey downloads from outside sources. They've also fixed various bugs found in the original release, so fell free to shell out five bucks for a trip back to the 80s.

We've been hearing rumblings for a while now about Redbox partnering with Verizon for a streaming service. Today, the company announced the details of that arrangement: for $8/month you can get access to unlimited streaming of a selection of movies (including the EPIX library which, for those who don't know, is pretty impressive), as well as four monthly credits to rent a physical movie for one night from any Redbox kiosk.

If you're looking for a tablet that can also function as a laptop, it's hard to beat ASUS' Transformer series. And out of the current lineup, the reigning champ is definitely the Infinity. Its 1900x1200 display is one of the best you can get in an Android tablet, and the 1.7GHz quad-core Tegra 3 keeps things running smoothly. Plus, when coupled with the keyboard dock, the battery life is pretty phenomenal.
