News: Ice Cream Sandwich Coming to the LG Nitro HD on July 31
The LG Nitro HD is not a very well known phone, but if you do have one, we have some good news for you. AT&T has announced that the device will be receiving its much-needed Ice Cream Sandwich on July 31st. The update will be available on Windows PCs via LG’s Mobile Support Tool. It’s unclear if the update will be available in any form for people using Macs.
New features include:
- New lock screen actions let you conveniently jump directly to a specific application without unlocking the homescreen.
- The redesigned Gallery App & Photo Editor makes it easier to manage, show, and share photos and videos than ever before.
- An updated home screen folder and favorites tray that lets you group your apps and shortcuts logically by simply dragging one onto another.
- Enhanced multitasking capabilities let you instantly navigate from one task to another by leveraging a list in the System Bar that includes thumbnail images of all recently used apps. Just tap the thumbnail to resume using that app.
- Improved text input with an updated keyboard that supports faster text input and more accurate entries with better error correction and word suggestions.
- An app that helps you easily monitor your data usage.
- Face Unlock, a new screen-lock option that intelligently unlocks your device using facial recognition software.
