Android Market Upgrades Available!

Posted by Jon Westfall in "Android Software" @ 04:30 AM

"It appears an update to the Android Market is now being pushed out to handsets, and we've got the .apk file for you right now."

The updates are slowly being pushed out, or you can grab the APK right now and install it. This version gives you an auto-update apps default, update over WiFi only (to help those on data caps) and a plethora of other settings. Sweet!

More Android Goodness For Your BlackBerry, But You'll Have To Wait

Posted by Jason Lee in "Android Talk" @ 10:00 AM

"RIM previously announced that its PlayBook tablet would be able to run Android apps by the summer, but we've just heard something to the contrary."

I hope that all this murmur about Android apps running on your shiny new BlackBerry PlayBook hasn't got your hopes up too much. Looks like the new buzz is that your 'Berry won't be sporting Android apps until late this fall. That's ok though, I'm sure RIM will still be in business by then. No worries.

An Unholy Union: Android Market Seen Running On BlackBerry PlayBook

Posted by Jason Lee in "Android Talk" @ 02:30 PM

http://www.engadget.com/2011/07/27/...playbook-video/

"We've already seen the Android App Player leak out, and now the BlackBerry PlayBook has taken one more (unofficial) step towards being a full-fledged, psuedo-Android tablet."

Grab your holy water and wooden spikes, kids. The unthinkable has happened. As seen in the video above some one was actually able to download and install an app from the Android Market onto a BlackBerry PlayBook. Well, kind of anyway. I just have to ask, are people really that hooked on BlackBerry? Why not just get an Android device?

GrooveShark: Hey, We Didn't Do Anything Wrong.

Posted by Jason Lee in "Android Software" @ 02:00 PM

"Music streaming service Grooveshark has many fans, few of which work for the major recording labels. That's why many assumed problems with the RIAA, a group of music industry thugs, I mean record labels, led to Grooveshark's removal from the Android Market last week."

I'm not a GrooveShark user (mostly because it involves spending money every month for something I don't need) but I really kind of wonder why it was pulled from the Android Market. According to GrooveShark, they haven't really been told what part of the ToS they violated to be removed from the Market. Were they pulled because of RIAA complaints? Pressure from the music labels? Because they might be a threat to Google's own pending music service? Who really knows... At the moment you can still get the app directly from GrooveShark's site and side load it to your phone but that's a pain. Especially for AT&T users. Any of you guys GrooveShark users? What do you think about its removal from the Android Market?

App Purchases Can Be Added Directly To Sprint Bill

Posted by Karey Westfall in "Android Mobile Operators" @ 01:30 PM

"Since last year, we've been working to bring the convenience of Direct Carrier Billing to more Android Market users on more carrier networks."

Direct Carrier Billing has come to Sprint allowing Android Market users to charge purchases directly to their Sprint bills. This will make it easy for customers to track purchases and pay for them all at one time along with their bill. Using only a few clicks to buy apps certainly makes purchasing easier as long as you don't get carried away!

"Read It Later, the popular Web reading list app, has finally launched an official Android app. Best of all, it's heavily discounted right now and selling for just 99 cents."

Here is one app that I have been eagerly awaiting for my Nexus One. I am a heavy RSS user, but I get tired of my reader getting filled up with items I plan to read later or want to keep for future reference. Read It Later is a great solution for this, or for those websites you come across that may have great information, tutorials, or step-by-step guides and you just know that you won't remember where they are when you actually need them. Go out and grab it now, while it's on sale for a whopping 80% off!

How do you use Read It Later or other similar services on your Android device?

"...Now, Google has some good news for you bibliophiles out there: The Xoom's Android Market application includes Google Books, and now the web version does too."

Bookstores? What are those? Now you can shop for your favorite titles from the Android Market and have them delivered to your tablet or phone! The process is just like buying an app in the online market; easy and convenient! What can be better than shopping for new reading material in your pj's?

Google Updates Android Gmail App: Get it from the Market Now

Posted by Jason Lee in "Android Software" @ 03:00 PM

"We just released a new version of the Gmail app in Android Market, so Gmail updates aren't tied to Android version releases anymore. Now you can get new Gmail stuff faster without having to wait for system updates. To start you off, we've improved message replies, access to quoted text, and more."

There are many things to love about Android. One of the greatest things is Google's ability to update the software that shipped with your device without a complete system update. Today they've done just that with the native Gmail app. For those of us running Froyo, the latest update brings cool new features like the floating message action bar and finally the ability to select and copy text! No longer will I have to launch gmail.com just to copy an email address or phone number out of a message. So far I am really liking this update. How is it treating you guys?
