XDA Developers member got his or her hands on the APK for Samsung's S-Voice. This combination of Google's voice recognition engine and heuristic computing got the lion's share of the attention for the new version of TouchWiz, which debuted with the Galaxy S III earlier this month.
XDA member Deeco7 has posted a modified version of the "Vending.apk" Google Play Store app file, with the aim of allowing anyone to download any app, regardless of their own location or the restrictions built into the app. The modified app works with Android 2.2 or later, and you don't even need root to install it.
HTC One X is pretty great, but its 1800mAh battery (not unlike the one on the Galaxy Nexus) is only OK. It turns out that HTC itself made something of an error in judgement when putting together that shiny new software. Due to an errant APK location, the native NVIDIA power control app (you know, the thing that makes that magical "5th core" work to save all that battery life) wasn't working properly. HTC should have a fix out soon enough, but in the meantime, the fellows at XDA have a fix for you.
trying to get used to the new Google Play moniker for the former Android Market, but Google itself is full steam ahead and has already released its forst notable update to the service. The 3.5.15 update to the familiar Vending APK doesn't change things as drastically as the last one, but there's still a few useful features you'll want to check out, the first of which is the new My Apps section with tabs accessible by swiping right from the front page. The software should be rolling out to just about everybody in the next couple of days, but if you can't wait, the guys at XDA have already put up an APK for one and all.
celebrate hitting 10 billion downloads from the Market. This has been a huge hit with Android fans but yesterday I realized if you have an older Android Market on your device, you could be missing out on all these deals.
Samsung Nexus and Ice Cream Sandwich. It appears a few are out in the wild and the leaks are finally starting to flood in so prepare for a few crazy days. Obviously there will be tons of changes and new apps, features in Google's Ice Cream Sandwich but a few that are already leaking have just hit the wires. We have a new Google+ application, version 2.0, with a few changes, then a brand new Google Music app too. More details and download links below.
OTA to Android 3.2.1 and we are now hearing another update has hit devices this morning. Along with it brings a brand new Android market for tablets -- looking beautiful just like what we now have on our smartphones. As soon as I get more details I'll drop the APK so everyone can enjoy the new market too.
saw a few weeks ago but we do get a few very welcomed changed and additions to the market. What we have here are a few improvements as well as the introduction of the Google +1 button for apps and games.
