HTC has officially confirmed on Twitter that 4.1 Jelly Bean is now rolling out across all of Europe for the HTC One X. What does it get you? Sense 4+, for one, as well as a few minor tweaks. What should really get the blood pumping is Project Butter (to iron out those rough laggy patches) and Google Now. Excited? I hope so. Now, go hit that check update button a billion times – and hope you’re lucky enough your CID is one of the first on the roll out list. Shout out in the comments if you’ve got it! Check out the original tweet here.
If there’s just one single are in which Android stands head and shoulders above the competition it just has to be notifications. Windows Phone’s notifications are basic, but rather rudimentary. Notification Centre on iOS is a step in the right direction for the platform but is still a clumsy and inefficient method of handling notifications. No no, Android is indubitably superior. Notifications on Jelly Bean are clean, organised and oh so versatile. Any app can plug into the notifications and expandable notifications just make everything that much better. See the basics when busy, expand for more info when the shade isn’t quite that full.
That, fellow readers, is the basic premise behind Notification Weather for Android. A weather app hiding away in your notification shade. As I said earlier this app has 2 views, a “collapsed” view and and “expanded” view. The UI is spot on – the damn thing looks stock! Really, Matias Duarte himself could have designed this.
