Android 1.6 Update

The Android 1.6 “Donut” update was released yesterday to developers and the details are flowing out. In this update, Google isn’t focusing on the user-interface as much as security and performance. A few features have been added with the Donut update such as a quick search box for easy application access, a new multimedia gallery which allows for seamless camera and camcorder integration with performance tweaks here and there. All that plus an updated battery usage indicator which lets you know which applications are using the most power and how much. For a detailed report of all Android 1.6 updates click here.

Overall this update will make your phone harder, better, faster, stronger (cue the daft punk music). We love Android performance updates because that means our Privus Mobile Caller ID application will only perform better. While we’re on the subject, Handango loves Privus Mobile so much they’ve nominated the application for another award but we need your help to win. Follow this link to cast your vote (ehem, you can vote as many times as you like so get clicking).
