Foursquare has just updated their Android app today, a few minutes ago. This update brings a number of redesigned elements in the app. Foursquare has redesigned the title bar, tabs, new UI for Specials and Explore features, photo gallery redesigned and a few touches here and there. You can now check-in to a place from a new button at the top-right corner of the app. It is better to have the check-in button up there, instead of taking space for another tab.

Now this is BIG! Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0) has been caught on photos while running on a Nexus S. It’s blue-ish (more like CyanogenMod colours), Honeycomb-look, embedded search bar at the top etc. This is the first time we have actually seen something of the next major Android update (Android 2.4 or Android 4.0) since it was announced at the Google I/O 2011 in May.

Android Market has thousands of apps, but not all of them are available to users all over the world. Even Android Market itself is not available in every country and some apps are specifically targeted to US markets. You can download those apps if you have a rooted phone. How? There is an app for that! Market Enabler is an Android app for ‘rooted’ devices that fakes a phone’s location and allows you to access Android Market from other countries.
Facebook has just launched their Facebook Messenger for Android app. It’s a standalone messaging app for smartphones and users with an iPhone and Android phones can now chat with each other directly using the Facebook Messenger for Mobile app. Facebook Messenger for Android looks a lot like the chat feature in the official Facebook Android app, but we believe, they just want to separate out chat from the main app so that more features can be easily introduced from Facebook Chat i.e. video calls etc.
There have been a couple of methods previously on connecting a PlayStation 3 (PS3) controller (Sixaxis or DualShock 3) with an Android phone or tablet to play games, but they have been very difficult and usually don’t work for most of the devices. Well, there is finally an app for this job that will let you connect your PS3 controller to your Android phone. In the last Honeycomb 3.1 update, Google introduced several new features which also included connecting USB devices to Android tablets i.e Xbox 360 controller can be used to play games on Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1. You […]

Google Mobile Blog accidentally published – and then removed – a post about the next version of their Search app for Android. They are bringing a host of new features to improve the search experience directly from your Android phone. It is not as if Google accidentally released the actual Google Search for Android app, but atleast we now know what features the new app will have and I can’t wait to try it out on my own phone!
