Android 2.2 Market now shows apps similar to the one you're viewing

The Android Market has seemingly received a 'silent' update overnight. 'Silent' in this case means that you don't have to do any updating of your own, as its being pushed by Google from their end. The update brings a new 'Similar' tab that becomes available while you're viewing any app's information. And, as you'd expect, if you tap on this new tab it will show you a list of apps that Google's...

Yes, that headline is no mistake! You can indeed install the latest version of Froyo, Android 2.2.1, on a jailbroken iPhone 2 or 3G, and you can do it all without a computer. Redmond Pie has put together a nice step-by-step guide to getting Android on your iPhone with Bootlace 2.1, but in short: it's as simple as installing Bootlace 2.1 from Cydia, running it, and firing up iDroid. The rest is...

Eclair and Froyo claim over 75 percent of Android market share

Fragmentation is one of the biggest problems, or advantages depending on how you look at it, facing Android today. With phones, tablets, and smartbooks, all running differing versions of Google's mobile OS, getting an app to run well on them all is certainly a challenge. All is not lost, however, as the latest Android Market analytics from big G show devices running Android 2.1, Eclair,...

YouTube for Android 2.2 gets an update, becomes standalone app

YouTube, like all Google apps for Android, used to be integrated into the operating system, and as a consequence, updates to it would only come when new versions of the OS were released. But Google is working to change this situation -- it started with Gmail, and now it has decoupled YouTube from the OS as well, making it a standalone app available in the Android Market. Hopefully this opens the...

Google confirms Flash will run on Android 2.2 Froyo

Take that, Apple! Google publicly announced today that the upcoming Android 2.2, aka Froyo, will fully support Flash. In a dig at Apple, Google's Andy Rubin told the New York Times that Android's commitment to openness means "not being militant about things consumers are actually enjoying." Rubin also knocked Apple for using private APIs that it won't let outside developers access. "We use the...
