When Samsung first launched the Note 10.1, it had some really solid ideas, but didn't do so well with the implementation. Soon after, the company released the the Note II, which improved on how it handled a lot of things that seemed to miss the mark on the Note 10.1 - namely multi-window, which allows more than one application to be run side-by-side.

If you haven't played the Shadowgun: DeadZone beta yet, go do that. Well, if you have a tablet (or Galaxy Note), that is. It's pretty hard to play on a phone. But this is bar-none my current favorite game for Android, and I'm fragging away at it for probably an hour or so every day lately.

The game has been in open beta for around a month now, and after several patches, is apparently just about ready for prime time.

Download The Android 4.2 Keyboard With Gesture Typing Right Now

As part of the unveiling of Android 4.2 yesterday, Google introduced a brand-new input method on the stock Android keyboard called "Gesture Typing." Basically, it's Swype. If you don't know what Swype is, check out this video. Basically, you drag your finger to type instead of tapping. Here's Google's version in action:
