With the week almost done and everyone now jealous of those who were able to get their hands on a Galaxy Nexus in the UK, it's time to rock out another Android Central podcast for you all. In case you missed all or some of the events of this week, make sure you jump on back a few pages and have a look, plus -- don't forget to check out the Android Central forums as well.
Evernote for Android is getting a rather healthy update today. They've taken three of the top requested features and gone ahead and implemented them into Evernote. So what's new? Quite a bit:
Notebook sharing - now share your notebooks on-the-go with a friend or the whole world.
Skitch - more integrated settings means you can more easily send your notes to Skitch for edits, and just as easily send it back into Evernote.
Widget app - this enables users, whether they have a SD card or not, to have fast access to Evernote features. You can create text, audio and snapshot notes, as well as jump right to the search screen.
Aside from the new features being added they've gone ahead and fixed a few bugs along the way. Overall, a pretty awesome update for Evernote users. If you dig using the app, you can find the download past the break waiting for you.
So the Galaxy Nexus is officially and actually now out in the wild (in the UK at least) and in the treasured hands of some eager Android fans. One such fan has done what to many would be unthinkable, and rubbed a set of keys all over the screen!
As we all know by now, there is no Gorilla Glass on the Galaxy Nexus. Curious for the results? Check out the video after the jump and see for yourselves, we think you'll be pleasantly surprised.
If you're one of the few lucky people who managed to bag a Galaxy Nexus at Phones4U in London today, then Google has some brand new instructional videos to help you get to grips with your shiny new plaything. The videos cover everything from first-time startup to the new NFC-enabled Android Beam feature. Head on over to the source link to check them out.
Zombies, guns, mayham and chaos -- what more could you want? Dead On Arrival is the latest game released for the Xperia Play as an exclusive for a limited time and it's pretty awesome. Featuring top down 3D gameplay, Dead On Arrival uses comic-style cut scenes tell the story of a endless horde of zombies after you but you get an a massive catalog of weapons to blast them to bits and have fun while doing so. Right now, Dead On Arrival is available for free in the Android Market for all Xperia Play owners, jump past the break for the trailer and full press release.
Apparently unconvinced by that other Facebook phone that such as beast isn't really desired, Motorola and Canadian carrier TELUS today anonounced the Motokey Social, with a 2.4-inch touchscreen and big black keyboard. You'll no doubt note the Facebook button in thie lower left, and it's also got five hom screens and two themes, all with links to Facebook.
Physically, it's 10mm thin, has a 3 MP camera and weighs 87 grams. It'll go for $89.99 startin Nov. 21 to TELUS prepaid customers.
By the way (if you haven't already noticed this by now): If you root your Kindle Fire, Amazon's streaming video will balk at you. The good news is it takes just a few seconds to unroot using SuperOneClick, and everything is both hunky and dory. Still, we'd prefer to not be thought of as potential pirates all the time, m'kay, Amazon?
Myxer Social Radio, a friend-focused social internet radio app, is now available on Android. Myxer Social Radio lets users create "listening rooms" with access to over 12 million songs and invite Facebook friends to listen and chat in real time. Myxer uses your Facebook account to share your listening habits with friends and allows you to see what your friends are listening to. You can also share individual tracks or albums on your Facebook using Myxer's library. Myxer is also available on iOS and on the web at myxer.fm, and can be downloaded now for free in the Android Market.
Figured we'd do our best to asplode the Internet in this one picture. That's Firefox for Android running Flash. On a Kindle Fire. Yeah, yeah, Flash is dead on mobile and all that. But the fine folks at Mozilla are still baking support for it in the new version of native Firefox, and it's avaliable now as a nightly build. That's not to say it's without bugs -- nightly builds are like that, of course. But it's very cool to see Mozilla bake in support for what's still -- and what will be for some time -- a very desired feature.
At long last, Tiny Tower -- the 16-bit game that crams SIM City into a skyscraper -- is available on Android. You control "blitzens" who live and work in the building as you erect new floors and businesses. The elevator is obvious mode of moving up and down, and you can easily start and stop, making this a great game for those down times when you don't want to get too terribly involved.
Tiny Tower's free, and we've got download links for ya after the break.
