Mobile carriers’ commercials used to feature big bright maps showing how many regions were covered by that carrier’s cell towers. Cheesy spokesmen would show the maps side by side, making it easy to see that their respective company covered the most area in the country. Verizon was the clear winner of that battle, but as time went on, there was only so much room to improve, and the fight is almost evening out. It’s almost over.
However, the carriers have something new to argue over. Who’s network is the fastest?
Expect T-Mobile to be making that case very soon. The company is about to kill global data roaming rates in over 100 countries, and it’s currently seeing speeds between 6Mbps and 20Mbps on its LTE network.
This information led CEO John Legere to tell the media at a recent NYC event that its network is currently faster than AT&T’s. But is it the fastest?
In an interview with AllThingsD, Legere said, ”I’m not announcing we’re the fastest,” Legere said. “I’m announcing we will be announcing that.”
Expect it to come soon, as T-Mobile will try to make a huge push for holiday sales. Showing potential customers that it’s time to switch is only step one.

You may have noticed that our good friends at Google have been busy this week. In the space of 24 hours they’ve launched a new tablet, launched a media streamer, unveiled Android 4.1 and base-jumped into the Google I/O conference. As if that wasn’t enough we’ve also seen updates to Maps, Google Earth, Chrome… I think you’re probably getting the idea by now.
Today it’s the turn of Google Drive to receive an update. Google lists the change log as follows:
1. Quickly find files that have been recently opened, edited or shared with you
2. Upload/Download all file types to/from your Google Drive
3. Selecting contacts to share with is easier
4. Faster navigation of folders when syncing in the background
5. Choose text alignment in the documents editor
The service may barely be a month old and already it’s shaping up to be a quality product. Do cloud storage pioneers Dropbox have something to worry about? Grab the update below and be sure to pop back and let us know your thoughts.
Since Instagram made it’s long awaited debut on Android earlier this year it has been improving slowly and steadily. The photo editing gurus have been hard at work on another update and it’s a significant one this time.

Furthermore users can now search for other users and specific tags in the explore tab from within the application. There are also a series of bug fixes and app optimisations bundled in for good measure.
The update is available right now, you can grab it through the QR code or Google Play link below. Enjoy!

“In regards to the wifi issue your running into, this is currently an issue that has been brought to our attention and we are actively working on a fix for this. We don’t have an ETA on the release of the fix yet, but we do have a work around in the meanwhile of toggling the wifi connection on the phone for a few seconds then toggling it back on. This will reset the connection from the phone to the Wifi, make it grab a new address and it should work for a while.”

Dana Davis AKA iNsAnEmOd took to his twitter account to generously share his work with the world in the shape of an APK download. You don’t need to be rooted to get going, you can simply side load the application and you’re good to go. Feedback online suggests that the APK will only work on Motorola ROMs, I’ve tried it out on my GSM Galaxy Nexus and can confirm that it didn’t work.

The Google Play Store has ran into one or two teething problem since it replaced the long-standing Android Market. Google has already pushed out a couple of updates in a short space of the time with the most recent seemingly causing more issues than it fixed. Frustrated users have been reporting a series of force closes, glitches whilst browsing and disappearing paid apps.
Fret no more as Google has started rolling out v3.5.16 which promises to fix the reported issues. There doesn’t appear to be a major overhaul here, it’s primarily just bug fixes. Paid apps are back, force closes fixed and early feedback suggests that navigating the menus is quicker and smoother.
If you don’t want to hang around until Google gets round to pushing the update then why not fetch it yourself. Click any one of the links below to get going.

The newest version of the Google Play store started to roll out last night and brings some welcomed new features. There is now a tabbed ‘My Apps’ section that shows you all the apps you have ever installed (up to 250) and an ‘All’ section that contains all the apps loaded on your device. You can also flip between multiple accounts under the All tab instead of going into your settings like in previous builds.
Another neat feature is the upgrade to the app reviews. If the Google servers can decipher what device the reviewer is using, the Play store will now reflect that in each review. You are also presented with new options in which you can display the reviews. You can see reviews from owners of your device only, or from the lasted version of the app, and you can also sort the way in which reviews are displayed, i.e. most helpful or newest reviews first. Pretty handy indeed!
This new update brings the Play store up to build 3.5.15 and should reach all devices over the next few days. If you are anxious to see what the changes look like right now then you can force the update yourself thanks to XDA member Joel Chan. No root required, just download this apk file and make sure you have ‘Unknown Sources’ checked off under the Security option in your device settings. Once downloaded, simply open the file and install but be sure to let us know what you think!
