At the recent Facebook mobile event, the single sign-on feature was announced with great pride. One of the launch partners mentioned in that announcement was Flixster but until now, no new update had been pushed for the app. Today though, you can now grab v3.0 from the Android Market, which includes the update to add single sign on using Facebook. Download link is after the break, or update in the Market.
Looks like Motorola's latest are getting ready to launch on AT&T. The Costco dummy units you see above are of the Motorola Flipside (bottom) and Motorola Bravo, a couple of mid-level phones announced at at CTIA. We're assuming AT&T will continue its MO of locking these guys down to the Android Market, but remember, that's what the Android Sideload Wonder Machine is for. Thanks, Mac!
Us Android users will never turn down a free dessert. We've had cupcakes, donuts, eclairs, and now, as most of us are waiting for some warm Gingerbread, HTC Legend users can add a nice helping of Froyo to their menu.
HTC announced via its Facebook page that users with an unbranded HTC Legend can expect the update in the coming weeks. However, due to the prolonged software approval process each carrier must administer, folks with a carrier branded phone will have to wait just a bit longer (per usual).
Nothing leaves us geeks more restless than the announcement of an imminent software update. Evidenced by user Arnoldthepotter'sthread in our forums almost two months ago, where he began the countdown to the HTC Legend Froyo update. Well, Arnoldthepotter, if you're reading, your countdown just got a lot shorter. [HTC Facebook]
The HTC AV Cable for Droid Incredible is a quick and easy way to display content from your phone onto a TV. The cable plugs into the DInc's microUSB slot on one end and has composite video plugs on the other (sorry, no HD here). The cable offers true mirroring, so anything displayed on your phone shows up on the TV. The plug itself is pretty small, and I had no issues with using it even though I have a case on my phone, but your mileage may vary. Join me past the break as I take a closer look, and be sure to check out the video demonstration and extra pictures!

Often times after finding a few minutes to spare in a busy day we grab for our Android device and look for something fun to do. Games are always a great way to pass the time, and games that can be picked up and put away at any time are even better. PBA Bowling was a great game and the update to PBA Bowling 2 has made it even better, bringing a much better experience to the Android device. Right off the bat it's a bit obvious that getting strikes could be deemed a little bit easy, but hey who doesn't like a game that they can do well in, right? The 3D graphics are done very well, with lots of great details throughout the whole game, though the motion is a little slow and not quite as fluid as we'd like. Whether you prefer to play alone, or verse a friend the $2.99 spent on this game is worth every penny.
If you're in the market for some new housing arrangements, you might want to check out the latest app from Realtor.com. Making use of GPS and Google Street Views, the Realtor.com app allows you to search within one to twenty miles of your location, locate the property and instantly connect with an agent to schedule a tour. You can also dictate voice notes and email friends and family the listing all from right within the application itself. You can catch the video of it in action after the break or head on over to the Android Market to download it for free.
As we mentioned a little while back, Google has had plans to give developers free Google TV devices for a while now. Keeping good on their word, developers are now reporting that the emails have been sent out for which they have up until 11:59 pm PST Nov. 11 to respond to. After that date, the devices will be shipping out provided you were able to confirm a U.S. shipping address. Really makes me wish I had signed up to be a Google Code developer now. Any of you all out there expecting one to arrive soon? [via MobitureBlog]
