Google Music is a fantastic – and fantasticly simple to use – service just out of beta, allowing its user to upload their music collection to the cloud and stream it from their browser on their PC, their phone or their tablet, while additional songs can also be bought from the new music tab in the Android Market. Unfortunately, there are a couple of caveats. Firstly, one may only upload 20,000 songs (which is a bit much, in my opinion). Secondly, due to licensing agreements and what not, the service is only open to the US of A. But fret not, follow this guide and BAM! you’re done. So read on past the break. …
Thanks to the enterprising folks over at XDA the Ice Cream Sandwich keyboard (with a lot of supported languages) is available as an apk file for download. It is the full ICS keyboard, except for the new fangled voice-input/dictation system.
It works well and far better than the Gingerbread offering, despite looking quite similar. There a few differences, such as the flat-gradient coloured keys and soft blue accents, and it is also a wee bit faster in operation too. I’m keeping it on my Desire Z even after my Galaxy Nexus arrives, how about you?
