HTC Media Link HD accessory Hands-on

Along with their new phones and sleek cases, HTC has another exciting option they are bringing to the table with HTC Media Link HD. This neat accessory is basically a Wifi-Direct device that allows the user to easily connect their HTC phone to their TV. This isn't a dock your phone must connect and be attached to, and it does more than just mirroring. It works over WiFi and offers dual-screen mode. Check it out after the break.

Spotify’s new Android app looks fresh, we go hands-on

Today Spotify announced their impressive brand new music streaming app for Android. Since first released last year in the US I've been patiently waiting for them to update the application, and today they've done that and more. Spotify didn't just update their app, they've completely redesigned it from top to bottom and it now feels part of the Android 4.0 ICS family with the Holo theme and more. If you're a fan of Spotify or have been considering it, you'll want to stay tuned for my hands-on video.

Flixster for Android gets updated – video streaming still poor

The hugely popular Movies by Flixster app for Android received a rather large update today in the Google Play Store. For being Friday the 13th things are looking up already. Surprisingly the update oddly lists multiple fixes for yes, Android 1.5 and 1.6 (Donut and Cupcake) devices for the few that still have them. Flixster specifically mentioned better video streaming on mobile data, which I'm not seeing any improvements on.

Hulu Plus updated with brand new tablet UI for Android

Good news today for anyone that uses Hulu. They've finally updated Hulu Plus for Android with full tablet support with a sleek new user interface and fullscreen streaming. Hulu hasn't been a very popular Android app and the user interface was quite poor if you ask me. After installing the new tablet-optimized app on my Transformer Prime I can safely say the new app is awesome, and looks great on a 10-inch screen.

We've had a lot of application updates and releases this week so far. Continuing with the excitement is Netflix for Android. It has just received another rather large update and is available now. Too bad streaming is still so-so for Android, we were hoping for an HD version for tablets but are still patiently waiting for that. Details after the break.

NFL Mobile headed to Galaxy Nexus today — Super Bowl live stream included

When I received my shiny new Galaxy Nexus from Verizon with 4G LTE I was excited to try NFL Mobile -- their awesome (and sadly exclusive) NFL app that basically is a must-have for any Football fan. Not to mention NFL Mobile premium with free live streaming of all NFL games including the Super Bowl is free for 4G LTE smartphone customers. Sadly it was not supported on the Galaxy Nexus but according to Droid-Life that should be changing today.
