Here’s a neat little feature which could be making an appearance on Android in the near future. A widget version of Google Now, which displays a round-up of your cards, has been spotted on Google’s support pages, which has since been removed.
Personally, I really like the current method of accessing the entire app from the lockscreen, but it wouldn’t hurt to have a widget summarising the day.
It’s hard to know when we can expect to see this widget released, but now that it’s been leaked I doubt Google will keep it in the dark for much longer.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Google really know how to create heart-warming adverts. This one, advertising the Nexus 4 and Google Now, is the latest to be released, and it really delivers on promoting the Google Now service.
If you want a change from the default still image lockscreen on Android, then this is the perfect app for you. This free app gives you a huge amount of GIFs to choose from, which you browse through by shaking the device. Once you find one that you like, you pin it to your lockscreen, and you’ll see it each time you turn the screen on.
Almost all of Google’s Android applications are beautifully designed, with the exception of Google Music. While some people may like the blue theme, I feel it’s too different from the rest of Google’s style to feel like a part of Android.
A new infographic posted by HTC has revealed that the smartphone manufacturer is planning a ‘new sound and camera experience’ for sometime this year. Presumably, the experience is a feature of the M7, HTC’s flagship device of 2013 which is yet to be officially announced.
Here’s the first ‘Amazing Android Icon Pack’ of 2013. This, the third article, includes some of the latest icon pack releases, as well as some which were pointed out to me, after missing them out in the previous collections.
Epic Citadel has launched on Android, and is now available on Google Play and the Amazon App Store. The app is more of a demonstration of the Epic’s Unreal Engine 3, which has created a simply stunning medieval kingdom for you to walk around in first person. Previously, Epic Citadel was only available on iOS, however now that it’s made the jump it can be viewed on the latest popular Android tablets, such as the Nexus 10, which has an incredible screen for viewing applications like this.
