When the Nexus 4 was released it came out with Android 4.2 installed. That is one of the reasons so many people wanted it that it actually ran out of stock in day 1. After that, the Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 7 and Nexus 10 also received the Android 4.2 update, except it seems that Google was not so prepared to do this. A lot of people have reported a lot of issues with the 4.2 update.
Together with the Android update, application developers also have to update their apps to make them work on the new OS. This week we have 4 app recommendations for Android 4.2 that you might be interested in:
- Blue Skies Live Wallpaper for Daydreams. If you didn’t know, Android 4.2 comes with a new feature called Daydream. This is basically a Screen Saver app that you can enable when the device is docked or charging. Blue Skies Live Wallpaper has been modified to be used as a Daydream screen saver in Android 4.2.
- Pure Calendar Widget. The Pure Calendar app was updates so that you can use it as a lock screen widget in Android 4.2 Pure Calendar is a very useful application that allows you to pull everything from Google Calendar and into this Widget. You can also customize the app in a lot of ways with plenty of skins and color modes. Also another cool thing about the widget is that it allows scrolling on the lock screen and that’s a real benefit.
- NETFLIX. This is one of the major updates in the app world. Netflix is now ready to use on Android 4.2 and it brings also some UI improvements. The update has been expected in the last weeks and it finally arrived. The added improvements are the following: A large volume button, New screen stills for easier scrubbing, more stability, some bug fixes. The update is a very useful one in the end, and you should try it out yourself.
- Fixed 4.2 Clock Widget. One thing that many people complained about when the Android 4.2 update was released, is the Stock Clock Widget on the lock screen with the Bold modified font. It seems that the change from the previous font was not well received by Android users. Luckily, if there’s one thing that Android let’s you do is to customize your device. Therefore, an app called Fixed 4.2 Clock Widget does exactly this for you. It allows you to fully customize the font of the Clock Widget and even make it as it used to be. It works just as the stock clock widget: if you press on it, it will take you to the stock clock app and it also displays alarm times. So if your are one of the people annoyed by the clock widget on Android 4.2, you can install this one and give it a try.
