Android 4.1.2 Hits AOSP, Merged into CM10

The world of Android moves quickly. It seems like only yesterday Google was announcing the Nexus 7 and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean at Google I/O in the Moscone Center. Now we hear that Jean-Baptiste Queru and the crew responsible for the AOSP released an update to 4.1.2.

Along for the ride comes an OTA for the Nexus 7, which now benefits from a landscape-capable default launcher. Another feature present, and one that is accessible from all devices, is a one-touch notification center.

Those of us not lucky enough to be running the Nexus 7 don’t have to wait long at all. In fact, in what is perhaps one of the fastest merges ever, CyanogenMod 10 nightlies now incorporate Android 4.1.2. So if you like being on the cutting edge with the latest version of Android, check out the latest official CyanogenMod 10 nightlies for your device.

For those interested, XDA users have reported that applying the 4.1.2 update on a Nexus 7 retains root for devices running ClockWork Mod Recovery and a stock, unlocked and rooted installation of 4.1.1.

But along with the design, a lot of Android enthusiasts were also impressed by another aspect of the flagship duo: their camera.

Tactile: An Addicting Game with Beautiful Material Design

The game industry has been around for decades, catering to a wide spectrum of people, young gamers and elder ones, casual gamers and serious ones, and for an industry with such specifications, innovation isn't the only fuel for success. An increasingly large number of games draw inspiration from another and build on top of that idea, and Tactile is one such product, an excellently executed brainchild of a mashup between Tetris and 2048. For 2048 veterans, the game will come across as relatively familiar....
