This week Android got a few long-awaited additions to their app lineup, most notably the previously iOS-only Vine and a version of Google Keyboard made just for Android. Not to mention a few fun little apps that, while not technically necessary, do make our lives just a bit easier. And that's what it's all about.




Google Keyboard: Google's new version is like many of the alternative keyboard titles you're already familiar with, which are necessary because Android phones all come with their own crappy proprietary keyboards, except of course for the Nexus 4. But across the board, it's generally not a great experience. However, Google Keyboard recreates the stock Google goodness on any Android phone. We're not sure how it stacks up to other keyboard replacements yet, but it is customizable to whatever flavor of Android you're rocking. [Free]
