Honeycomb Music Player Leaked: It's Hot, Sticky Sweet...

"Want a sneak peek at some Honeycomb goodness? Of course you do! And now, thanks to xda member johnnie93, you can have some."

I have to say this looks promising. If this is any indication of the UI goodness we might get when Honeycomb lands we are in for a real treat. I'm sure we all agree that the default Android music player isn't the prettiest thing in the world. After looking at the screen shots of the new default Honeycomb player my hopes are up. If screen shots aren't enough for you follow the read link and download the apk for yourself. I hear it works "most of the time." Anyone tried this out yet? What do you think?

Keyboard Manager Allows You To Set Your Default Keyboard Based On Device Orientation

"XDA member ne0fhyk has just released a very interesting app for those of you who don't have enough with Android's stock keyboard manager. This new app allows you to set a different keyboard based on the orientation of your device."

This is an interesting application. It allows you to choose with keyboard is active based on which way you are holding your device. Say you prefer Swipe for your portrait typing but like the big key typing on the stock Android keyboard in landscape. Well not you don't have to change them manually. It is worth noting that this does require your device to be rooted and some kind of root file explorer so you can hack config files but it is an interesting idea if you frequently use different keyboards on your Android device. Does this program fill a need for anyone out there?
