Peer Into Another World With Central Core Studios' RadiantWalls HD - PlanetScapes Live Wallpaper

When it comes to my Android devices' home screens, I'm fickle. It is rare that a wallpaper or layout will last more than a few days. That being said, I find that live wallpapers tend to have a much longer shelf life than their static counterparts, perhaps because they are – generally – so much more dynamic. Taking the concept of a truly dynamic LWP to another level entirely, Central Core Studios has introduced RadiantWalls HD – PlanetScapes to the Android Market, making your device "a window looking out onto the surface of the planet Avalon."

The wallpaper comes in two flavors – free and paid.

Formspring Android App Hits The Market, Lets You Ask And Answer Ridiculous Questions From The Comfort Of Your Phone

So, there's this thing called Formspring. Apparently it's really big, yet many people have never heard of it. Here's the gist: you ask people questions, they answer you. In turn, people ask you questions and you answer them. Sounds exhilarating, no?

Now this Formspring thing is native on Android.

[New App] SwitchMe Lets You Swap Between Multiple Android Profiles On A Single (Rooted) Device

If there's one thing that the desktop world has that Android desperately needs, it's multiple user support. A shared Windows machine or a Mac both support multiple user profiles on a single device. While this isn't that big of a deal on phones, tablet users might find it unsettling passing around a shared device tied directly to their all-knowing Google account. Enter SwitchMe, an app to help alleviate the uncertainty. This root app allows users to boot into multiple profiles within a single ROM.

However, over the years this "simple" note-taking suite has expanded with an unwieldy number of features, making it somewhat difficult to manage. So, it is always nice to see an Evernote update for Android that just aims to make the service better without adding further bloat.

The recent update (version 3.5), downloadable from the Android Market, adds smart titles, quick saves, better layout of images, and a number of crucial bug fixes.

We've all heard the debates (or been involved in them) about Android malware. Some say it doesn't really exist and is only used as a "scare tactic." Others insist that it's a threat and is becoming more prominent.

Regardless of your personal feelings on the matter, Lookout Labs would have us believe that it finds thousands of threats everyday. In order to help visualize this claim, Lookout released a new app to the Market called Mobile Threat Tracker that shows, in almost real-time, detected infections on Lookout-protected devices across the globe.
