Evernote for Android - New update adds notebook sharing, further Skitch integration & new widget

1

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.

Flash support arrives in native version of Firefox for Android

13

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.

Tiny Tower now available on Android

16

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.

Thanks to everyone who sent this in!

Redux TV for Android tablets get an early look thanks to an Android Central member

2


Youtube link for mobile viewing

A few weeks back we looked at Redux on Google TV (check it out here, it's pretty sweet), and Android Central member HAAS599 posted the comment we all were thinking:

Why is this not on my Tablet?

In some crazy random act of coolness, Andy from Redux decided to shoot a copy of what's currently under development to HAAS599 so he could have a look.  He lets us have a look (with permission from the fellows at Redux) by shooting some video of the app in action.  If you use a Honeycomb tablet, you'll be interested.  Curated channels filled with great content from all over the web, in a package that is easy and intuitive to use and navigate.  These are the kinds of apps that make a tablet worth having, and Redux is one we're waiting for.  Head into the forums and check it out.

Android Market on the Kindle Fire? Done!

10

T'was only a matter of time, right? The Android Market -- and all of its hidden secrets apps -- now runs just fine on the Amazon Kindle Fire. There are a couple of caveats (albeit not huge ones) if you want to get this done. You're going to need to root your Kindle Fire, and you're going to need to be a little familiar with file explorers and apps permissions. Hardly insurmountable stuff, though, and the whole process takes just a few minutes. Hit the link below for full instructions.

Good grief! 'A Charlie Brown Christmas' now available on your Android phone or tablet

9

This might be the best $6.99 you spend this holiday season. LoudCrow Interactive -- the company behind bringing the Sandra Boynton books to Android -- has brought the classic "A Charlie Brown Christmas" to phones and tablets.

It's the same interactive reading experience we've come to know and love, right down to Schroeder's piano. Chances are you'll enjoy this as much as your kids.

We've got demo video and download links after the break.

First look at the updated Google Music app

44

Here we have our first look at the new and improved Google Music app, which -- surprise, surprise -- is pretty much what we saw tucked into an early Ice Cream Sandwich build. Really, not a whole lot has changed in the whole Google Music experience as far as using the app goes. It's been spruced up a bit, is all, and themed more for the ICS crowd.

Take a look at the video after the break, update in the market at your leisure, and hope the updated Android Market app -- which you'll need to buy music from your phone -- hits soon.

Updated Google Music app now available

14

The updated Google Music app -- part of what you'll need to take part in all this newfangled digital music goodness -- is now live in the Android Market. If you're into changelogs, it reads as follows:

1. Google Music is now out of beta and is open to all users without an invitation. Upload up to 20,000 songs from your personal music collection to Google Music and listen instantly on all your devices.

2. Seamless integration with the Android Market music store. All your purchases automatically appear in the Google Music app.

What we don't yet have is that updated Android Market on our phones. But, in the meantime, you can purchase from the Android Market website.

Google Music Artist Hub allows independent artists full distribution to millions

1

This one is big news for the budding musicians out there -- Google has announced that the Artist hub will be part of their new Music player and website.  Artist Hub is a way for independent musicians to promote their music with audio files, video, and exclusive content that they control.  It's very much like the Android Market developers portal.  All the content artists upload will be available via the web, and on 200 million Android devices.  That's a lot of eyes and ears, and this service should be a great way to get your music heard, as well as a great way for users to discover new content.

Google revamps Google Music with an actual store

38

As expected, Google this afternoon revamped Google Music, taking it out of beta, making it available to everyone -- and bringing online purchasing into the fold. That is, if you're in the United States.

And outside of purchasing music, the service will remain free.

"For music fans, we believe today's technologies ... bring with them the capability to dramatically improve the digital music experience, said Google's Jaime Rosenberg, director of digital content for Android." In fact, it's what consumers have come to expect."

Just as with the beta service, you can continue to upload your own music to Google Music and stream it back to any of your Android devices.

But the big change is in the Android Market. You'll now be able to discover, browse and purchase music from the Android Market. Everything in the music store has a 90-second preview, and songs are downloaded as 320kbps mp3s. Tracks will download directly to your music locker, so they'll be immediately available on all of your devices.

Of course, Google Music's going social, and your friends will play a big part in helping you discover music. When you purchase music, you're given the option of recommending the music on Google + (and as e-mail links to your lame friends not on Google+), and they'll be able to listen to the entire track -- or the entire album -- for free. That sharing extends to Android and iOS devices as well.

Googles' sweetened the deal with a bunch of exlusive, free music. The Rolling Stones have given six exclusive live records. Coldplay's given a live EP to the cause. Busta Rhymes (who was at the event in L.A.) is debuting his new album on Google Music. Plus, live albums from Pearl Jam, Shakira and the Dave Matthews Band. And Google's going to continue to give a free song a day -- it's given away more than 100 million so far.

So who's on board? Three of the four major labels have signed on -- EMI, Universal and Sony. Google's also got a bunch of independant labels, and more than 1,000 total are a part of Google Music.

Google's also given indepentent artists a place to share andn sell their music, with the Artist Hub. They can upload, set prices and have complete control over their content.

So when will you get it? The new version of the Google Music app is available now, as is the new version of the web market. The Android Market will be updated for purchases over the next few days (though we fully expect manual downloads pretty quickly).

Sprinkle update live in Android Market, opens up to all 2.3+ devices

15

One of my favourite Tegra Zone games so far has to be Sprinkle. It's super addictive, challenging, fun to play, excellent graphics, a brilliant casual game. The only drawback has been it's reliance on the Tegra 2 chipset. That changes today though as the latest update has landed bringing with it compatibility for "all recent Android smartphones running Android 2.3 or greater." 

Please do note the word recent in that statement though, meaning it may not be compatible with all Gingerbread+ devices. To try it out though, why not hit the download link below to the also released today free version. Don't forget to check out our review of the game for a full hands on.
