Onavo App Update To Include Widgets, Helps You Track Your Data Usage In Real-Time

With the launch of the Galaxy Nexus, there's a good chance that many users left their current carrier to go with Verizon. Since Big Red no longer offers unlimited data plans, keeping tabs on your data usage is an absolute must. For that, Onavo is here to help, and the most recent update to its app makes monitoring your usage even easier.

The new widgets include App Watch, which helps you keep track of how much data is being used an a per-app basis; a data plan used widget, which offers a quick look at where you're at for the month (with percentage used); and a live data usage 1x4 that shows how much data you've used in the last 30 minutes.

MiLocker looks to compete with offerings such as WidgetLocker and GO Locker as your lockscreen replacement, and after spending just a few minutes with it, I can say that it's quite nice - enough so that it will most likely become my primary lockscreen replacement (at least for a while).

Google Translate Updated, Now Allows For Handwriting Recognition In Seven Different Languages

Google Translate just got a little update that brings big functionality: the ability to recognize written words in seven different languages. The previous version allowed for text and spoken input only, so this update adds just another method to the mix.

[Download] Android Market 3.4.4 With Noticeable Speed Improvements

Google has started pushing out a new Market update with version 3.4.4, which upon quick inspection operates faster than before and brings a setting for auto-adding of widgets to your home screen.

If you missed the changes in the previous major update v3.3.11, read about them here. A minor update v3.3.12 is here.
