Nexus still not Sweetened by Android Jelly Bean

Galaxy Nexus users could be forgiven for thinking that they have been forgotten by Google. All the hype in the past few weeks has been surrounding the launch of the Nexus 7 Tablet for Android. Also, the new Jelly Bean update for Android phones has been flagged to appear on the Nexus S phone, a phone which was around a year before the Galaxy Nexus.

So why is the Nexus not getting Jelly Bean? There has been some reports overseas that when the Jelly Bean update is applied to the Galaxy Nexus, the phone does not get a precise GPS lock on your location. Not good. As a result, there seems to be some delay in releasing the update to our phones.

The solution is to keep waiting and keep an eye out for the update. Leave a message if your Nexus has been upgraded to Jelly Bean.

Send your REALTIME location via SMS

Here is one of those awesome apps that make you really sit up with your eyes wide and excited. It's called Glympse and it gives you the ability to send your current (and moving!) location to someone via sms, twitter or facebook.

Let's say you are meeting a friend in the city. Send the Glympse via sms to them and set the time for 10 minutes. For the next 10 minutes, your friend can see your location as you move closer and closer to the city. Rather than calling each other to find out where you are, you can then track your friend's location until you see him right in front of you. You can even know how fast he is travelling!

I don't have screenshots yet but you have to check out this app and leave your comments and excitement below.
