Google update the Google map for Android again, the latest version is 5.7, it is the third update Google released in the last 4 month, in this 5.7 version, moving, resizing and rotating maps become more smoothly.
Download Map Area is added in the lab function, from now on you can download the map data where you are going to travel before you start the trip. How to download the map area? simply move to the target area, press on the screen, select download map area on the menu, then you can view that area without Internet connection.

Gtalk: Support on Gingerbread and Froyo, you can install it with the other Google applications when you finish the Android setup wizard, be awared the download application will show on once. If you want to make video calls to PCs, you must have a Gmail account and install the video chat ActiveX (for IE users) or plugins. The video window a little small and the quality is not so high, maybe it’s the abroad Google sever make the connection be slowly.
After update AOSP Gingerbread or Froyo on your phone, you may see some MP3 songs name turns into garbled characters, especial Asian characters. I use this tool to fix the encoding type of the MP3 tags: Music Tag Fixer, it can batch fix lots of song’s tag, convert and fix non-unicode music id3 tags to unicode. You can search it on Market to install or open this link
Warning: Unlike other tag fixer only modify the music database, Music Tag Fixer will directly modify the MP3 files, so back up your songs for safety before you press the convert button.
