Facebook Home has been dominating a lot of technology news headlines over the past few days, following it’s announcement last week. The Android launcher is due for an official release on a handful of devices this Friday, the 12th of April. However, the application APK files have been leaked onto the internet today, and are available to install right now on a number of unsupported devices, including the Nexus 4 and Nexus 7.

SwiftKey Flow Beta, Download Now!

swiftkey flow beta

SwiftKey is an extremely accurate keyboard for Android which predicts what you are about to say and attempts to continue the sentence you are writing through a number of possible answers at the top of the keyboard. The latest SwiftKey release tries to combine the extreme ease of use of previous versions with the swiping style of Swype and the official Android 4.2 keyboard. The result is SwiftKey Flow, possibly the fastest and most accurate keyboard which has ever been available on Android, and the beta is available to download right now.

Jelly Bean Keyboard, Download Now!

A port of the Android Jelly Bean Keyboard is available in the Google Play Store right now.

The company who have brought us this keyboard is Beansoft, the same company behind the ICS Browser + and Thumb Keyboard, both relatively popular apps in the Android community.

As I mentioned in a previous post, the new Jelly Bean keyboard is very similar to SwiftKey. This version of the keyboard is still an alpha port, so be prepared for any glitches.

Google Now on Ice Cream Sandwich, Download!

Google Now is arguably one of the most exciting features of Jelly Bean. It’s hard to resist the idea of an Android Siri alternative which, according to early reviews, blows Apple’s voice assistant out of the water. Luckily, developers are already hard at work to port Google Now to devices running Ice Cream Sandwich, and the early attempts are available to download now.

None of the ports have functioning voice recognition, obviously one of the main features which makes Google Now so exciting. However some results and user configuration options are working quite well.

It’s nowhere near the final product in Jelly Bean, but it’s a good idea as to what sort of thing you can expect. There are several problems which include network errors, force closures and trouble with the install.

Unfortunately, Jelly Bean looks set for a very slow roll out, meaning that many people will not get it for a very long time, if at all. Especially as it was revealed today that Ice Cream Sandwich is currently only on 10% of devices after almost 9 months on the market.  So if you are eager to get your hands on the goodies that come with Android 4.1, then you should definitely keep an eye on the XDA thread below.

To download, visit the link below and follow the download instructions. There have already been, and will continue to be updates each and every day. So be sure to read through the thread to make sure you have the most up-to-date version. I’ll be sure to write a new post when (if) a fully functioning port becomes available.

S Voice Leaked, Download It Now!

The Galaxy SIII is set to come with a huge amount of new features, which Android developers and modders will be desperate to get their hands on for other devices

Earlier this week the entire ROM of the SIII was leaked, but not for public use. From this ROM developers have been hard at work to bring you some of the features which Samsung intend for only their customers.

The first feature to leak to the public is ‘S Voice’, Samsung’s attempt to beat Apple’s Siri.

The whopping 25mb APK file only works on phones running Android 4.0 and up, and I use the term ‘work’ loosely. At the moment many users are reporting force closures, including me. I have experienced a couple of network errors, and the occasional force close.

To give it a try for yourself, use one of the links below. A lot of the links I noticed weren’t working due to the huge amount of people that were trying to download it, so I uploaded the file for you to download my self.

If you have trouble with getting it to work, you may need to change the permissions. Use Root Explorer for this, and change the permissions so it looks like this.

Let me know if you get it working, and what you think!
