Netflix Gets A Makeover Designed For Android Tablets, Including The Kindle Fire And Nook Tablet

Netflix Gets A Makeover Designed For Android Tablets, Including The Kindle Fire And Nook Tablet

While Netflix has had support (whether legit or not) for Android tablets for quite a while, there is one thing that can definitely be said about it: the interface was crap. Sure, it worked out great on the phone, but a lot of valuable screen real estate and key components of Android 3.1+ were going to waste on tablets. I guess the Netflix team realized this, because an update has been pushed to the tablet interface that fixes most of the aforementioned issues.

Loquendo's TTS Engines Are Miles Ahead Of Others (Including PicoTTS)

Improving on existing TTS technology, Loquendo (a Nuance company) is showing the world that "even computers can show their feelings," with a huge array of TTS engines that are not only more advanced, but significantly more dynamic than existing alternatives.

The bad news is that only two of these engines are currently available for Android – Italian TTS Paola and American English TTS Susan. That being said, we can still hope that more of Loquendo's engines will be adapted for Android, and, in the meantime, Loquendo's website has amazing demos of all its TTS voices, both static and interactive.

YouTube App Updated, But Now It Doesn't Show In The Market For Many Devices - Download It Here

The YouTube app just received an update to bring a few new features, including a +1 button, "watch later" queue, and the ability to upload while editing video info, along with one unexpected issue. The app description now says it's for Android 2.2-2.3.3, and, as a result, isn't showing up on devices running other versions, including Honeycomb tablets. Despite this, I was able to pull the update on my Incredible running CM7 (Android 2.3.7), although Artem couldn't even see YouTube in the Market on his stock rooted Epic 4G Touch (Android 2.3.4).

[Deal Alert] QuickOffice Pro (Normally $15) And Pro HD (Normally $20) Free Today In The Amazon Appstore

More often than not, we scoff at Amazon's free premium app of the day, because, let's face it -- there isn't much that screams premium about most of them. That's not the case today, however, because QuickOffice Pro and Pro HD (for Honeycomb tablets) are both free in the Amazon Appstore.

Screen Shots Surface Showing What Could Be The Google Music Store – Expect Free Song Of The Day, Recommended Artists, And More

Lending credence to theories that Google's November 16th event may have something to do with the debut of the Google Music Store, a writer at TecnoDroidVe has discovered (what appears to be) a work-in-progress version of the store, accessing it from his HTC Inspire 4G. While it's unclear how exactly Ricardo found his way into the Music Store, the screenshots he was able to recover look very promising.
