Millennial Media November Report: Android Continuing To Grow, Dominating Ad Revenue & Developers

Another month, another report from advertiser Millennial Media. As usual, it's best to start this off by pointing out that these results are based on ad impressions across Millennial's network, and thus should be considered a sample. With that out of the way, let's take a peek.

The two most significant things that stand out to me are that Android is now tied with iOS for the largest smartphone OS, and Android accounts for a whopping 54% of ad revenue on the network, versus 39% for iOS.

Facebook For Android Updated To Version 1.5, Brings Chat, Push Notifications, And Bug Fixes

A new update to Facebook for Android just landed on the Market, and it brings a duo of long-awaited features: push notifications and Chat. Naturally, it also packs some bug fixes for good measure.

Personally, I find the new Chat feature to be perfectly adequate, but David is thoroughly unimpressed. His complaints are that it has a boring interface, it's slow, and it just feels tacked on. I don't exactly disagree with any of those points, I just don't think they're major issues.

Modus Operandi: Like Tasker, But With Less Options And 100% More Free

As far as apps go, few are more useful and versatile than Tasker. Despite the comparatively high price (for an app, anyway) of $6.30, there's probably a reason why its average rating is an impressive 4.7/5 stars. Still, that price is high enough to turn some users away, despite the serious lack of alternatives. Fortunately, that gap was filled a few days ago, when an app called Modus Operandi hit the Market.

Rooted Nook Colors Now Market-Capable, Terms And Conditions Apply

The rooting of Barnes & Noble's delicious IPS-wielding e-reader took place a couple of weeks ago, rendering the device more of a tablet than a single-use reading terminal in one gloriously justifying move. As with most other tablets, however, it lacked one thing: proper Google app support with access to the Android market. Of course, with the main rooting hurdle already surmounted, it was only a matter of time before these problems were dealt with, too.

App Of The Week: Grooveshark For Android (Insert Tooth-Related Or Aquatic Pun Here)

Well, here we are again. Another week, another slew of apps to choose from. For a while there, we were doing an "App of the Week" series and then, for an even longer while, we weren't. I'd like for us to get back on the right path here, so I'm going to fix this.

App of the Week, Season 2: Eclectic Boogaloo

I've been a long time fan of Grooveshark. It is a service that, in my mind, cannot be beaten.

Need A Dropbox-Based Note App, But Like To Keep It Simple? Check Out Epistle

One of the minor things I find annoying about Android is that there's no stock note app. I never understood how all the dumbphones and featurephones I had in the past 5 years had a note "app," but when I upgraded to my first Android device, I was dumbfounded to find that Android lacked anything similar.

I have no problems with apps such as Remember The Milk as they do the task quite well.
