The wait is over, Gingerbread is available for all the Droid X and Droid 2 users out there. My Droid World just released (early) the official updates for these two handsets. Have at ‘em folks, download links at MDW.
Amazon released their version of the “market” to the public a few days ago. Some may wonder why would people even bother going to another app market place when there’s one built in (Google’s). Well, if the current trend of giving away paid apps for free every day is an incentive, I’m all for it.
Today’s freebie is Swiftkey, the popular keyboard replacement. Save yourself $1.99 and grab it via the Amazon Appstore app. You have about 12 hours before it goes back to full price. Don’t forget to queue up Angry Bird Rio while you’re at it. That’s also free for a limited time.
The folks at My Droid World just got the Flash 10.2 apk that is supposed to be released on the 18th of March. This will work on the Xoom tablet and just about all popular Android phones. I’ve loaded it on my G2 running CM7 and it works as expected.

The latest Cyanogenmod (CM) 7 Nightlies have added a few notable updates to the latest builds. One of the more requested ones (at least for me) is the battery percentage in the status bar. This was available in CM6, but CM7 had some previous problems in getting this done, but that has been overcome with the latest builds.
The new battery percentage is slightly different in that the percentage isn’t inside the battery icon. The new style has the numbering to the left of a small battery bar.
To update to CM7, grab it from the CM site or if you are a premium Rom Manager user you can download it directly from the app.
