[New App] Notification Weather Offers Current Conditions And Forecasts In Expandable Notifications

One of the coolest features included in Android 4.1 was the enhanced notifications. If an app supports the feature, you can swipe down and expand the data being shown. Many of the stock apps do this, but third-party developers have been taking advantage as well.

While Android 4.2 is now making its way into AOSP (Android Open Source Project), support for one device in that code is not, and won't be for some time: the Nexus 4. Android maintainer JBQ (an awesome guy we quote a lot on days like this) has confirmed that the "Nexus 4 is not supported in AOSP at the moment: no source files, no binaries."

JBQ is not able to comment on why this is the case, or when we might expect the Nexus 4 to join Google's big happy AOSP Nexus device family, though obviously if Google could merge it into AOSP today, they would.

Device Art Generator Updated With Nexus 4, 10 Frames

Since the Device Frame Generator moved to Google's Android Developer site and received its new name (Device Art Generator), we've heard nary a peep about additional frames or other updates.

That's pixel density of 440ppi! The display is a SuperLCD 3 panel, which makes it a generation better than the previous Best Screen Ever, the HTC One X display.
