Like other parts of HTC Sense 6, the HTC Sense Input keyboard has made its way to Google Play. That means that HTC can now push updates to the keyboard with ease and not have to lean on a full system update just to tweak the keyboard — and that updated can go out to all supporting devices instead of waiting for each device update to be completed and then waiting again for carrier approval.

Facebook's new save feature lets you get to that quiz later

10

Facebook will soon let you save your favorite things from Facebook. Not a local save, mind you, more of a Pocket for Facebook, and only in Facebook. With the save feature a tap or two will let you save a link, place, or bit of linked media (movie, TV show, or music) for later reference. Those hilarious (or incriminating) status updates and photos? You still can't save those — you'll still have to resort to a screenshot for that.

Yahoo Mail review

23

This week we're going to be taking a deep dive into some of Yahoo's Android apps. Sure, Google trounced them in search in the early days, but Yahoo has managed to stick through it with a couple of bruises.

As it turns out, Yahoo has some pretty great apps. First and foremost, Yahoo Mail delivers some extremely sharp visuals thanks in no small part to the strong theme support. While looking through the inbox and other e-mail views, the background is blurred out, but as soon as you pop into a menu, you get a striking wallpaper and assigns a complementary highlight color through the rest of the interface. A similar set-up is available on the web, but unfortunately the two don't sync. Besides that, the icon set is flat and minimal, just the way we like it, and transition animations are smooth.

That's the key takeaway from the latest State of the Developer Nation report from Vision Mobile, pulling together data from more than 10,000 mobile developers (including some of you) across 137 countries. With that many developers they were able to get a broad view of what's popular and (more importantly) what's successful in making great apps.

Android Central University: QR Codes for fun and profit

7

Our planet is covered in tiny squares filled with a curious arrangement of shapes that mean absolutely nothing to the naked eye. They are on posters, billboards, business cards, cereal boxes, and so much more. For the most part we ignore them, because there's no reason to interact with these little squares unless specifically told to. They are called QR Codes, and once you figure out how to fit them into your life they can become an incredibly useful tool.

QR Codes are not a new technology, in fact they have been around since 1994 and were originally used to track components during vehicle assembly. Today you can find tiny QR Codes on components for tons of different things, as many companies still use this tracking method during assembly. For those of us who aren't building a car, these little squares are used mostly for presenting links to websites and apps in a way that doesn't require manual input.
