Google Voice Update Includes Battery Enhancement, Flash 10.3 Receives Support for OMAP4 Devices

One of the greatest apps on Earth, Google Voice, has an update available that should help to improve your battery life even though part of it also allows for your screen to stay on while listening to voicemails.  I know, it seems like two things that would work against each other, but you know what?  We’ll take Google Voice for its word, since it’s so awesome.   (more…)

Both Adobe AIR and Flash 10.3 Receive Updates

Both Adobe AIR and Flash 10.3 should be prompting you to update any minute now.  Neither appear to include anything critical, but it’s always good to stay up-to-date on these things, right?

AIR changes:

  • AAC audio will now decode and play back correctly on Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) devices.
  • Ghosting and green artifact issue now fixed on Android 2.2 devices with the NVIDIA Tegra2

Flash 10.3 changes:

Flash 10.3 Update Goes Live, Looks Like Bug Fixes

Just on the heels of news that Netflix decided to finally release an Android app, the Adobe team has stepped up and dropped Flash 10.3 on us.  We aren’t exactly sure what prompted this big jump from .2 to .3, but the market does says that “Important bug fixes and security enhancements” were included.  So nothing major up front or on the level as the update the other day which tipped us all to the release of Android 3.1.

Adobe Flash 10.2 Available March 18 for Motorola XOOM Owners

The first update for the Motorola XOOM started rolling out today and with it comes support for Adobe’s Flash 10.2 which we’ve now learned will be released to the Android Market on March 18.  This is big news, especially for all those complaining about the XOOM coming half-baked or not finished.  So you all had to wait 3 weeks for it?  Everyone going to live?   (more…)

Adobe: Flash 10.2 Headed to Motorola XOOM in a “Few Weeks”

We thought the world had officially come to an end this morning when Verizon informed us that Flash 10.1 would not be available at launch on the Motorola XOOM, but thanks to Adobe, people can start to breathe again.  In a blog post that went up just an hour ago, they announced that Flash 10.2 (instead of 10.1) will be available within a few weeks…

Adobe will offer Flash Player 10.2 preinstalled on some tablets and as an OTA download on others within a few weeks of Android 3 (Honeycomb) devices becoming available, the first of which is expected to be the Motorola Xoom.

While it still won’t be pre-installed, and our full web experience will be crippled for a bit, at least we have some sort of idea as to when we can expect an update.  A “few weeks” may not be as specific as we’d like, but it sure sounds a lot better than “Spring 2011.”
