Offering their keyboard as an alternative to manufacture skinned models, or the likes of Swype and SwiftKey. For those who do (and don't) use the stock keyboard, we wanted to share a few tips and tricks that make it useful. Things like gesture typing, next-word suggestions, and even text expansion support.
Facebook made a big move to finally add the popular hashtag option to their social network. Made popular (and extremely useful) by Twitter, we now finally have clickable #hashtags on Facebook. While the inclusion was nice, we still weren't able to enjoy the feature on mobile. With millions of users enjoying Facebook on mobile daily, this only made sense, and as of Thursday the feature is rolling out to all devices.

It's called Pie Controls, and is popular with many Android ROM's, especially Paranoid Android. We first saw Pie Controls in the now replaced stock browser in Honeycomb, but starting today they'll be available in a completely different way.

The impressive feature arrived with the Galaxy Nexus and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, and today they now have a few full patents on the security option.
Twitter fans out there we have an awesome new Android client to share with you all. In case you haven't heard of it, the extremely popular Carbon for Android Twitter app has finally been released. After being announced and teased last year and under development for far too long, it's available now.
