comment Are Xoom files automatically transferred to a newly added microSD card?
On my stock 4.1.2 Xoom, I don't have write access to the MicroSD card (doesn't seem to be supported). Whenever I want to delete/add files I have to remove the card and put it into a computer. So you may need to do this to remove your smartphone files from the MicroSD card.

I wasn't able to get this working on mine. (Droid 3, Android 2.3.4, Play Store App version 3.9.16) Perhaps this is ICS+?

Just to add - this only removes them from the long list of "All Apps" it does not revoke any purchases you made (The Amazon AppStore remove does (or did last I checked), and removing there means repurchase later). And yes, the constant scrolling was highly annoying. Here's hoping they add this to the web store soon.

comment How do Google Play app updates work? Are they free?
@SachinShekhar When you pay for an app (Splashtop for example) you will always be able to get updates for free for Splashtop, since it was paid for. However, the developer released a different "upgraded" app (Splashtop 2). If I wanted those upgrades, I would have to purchase Splashtop 2. It is technically an "upgraded" version of Splashtop, but was released as a different app. So as long as it is the same app, you are not charged for updates; if they change apps you will have to purchase the new one.

Side Note: Apps that change permissions must still be manually reviewed before updating using this method.

comment Should I run a factory reset on my phone to speed it up?
I would have included installing Cyanogenmod; but when I checked the site it said that the Global version was not supported.

I believe this depends on your provider. For example: Verizon's CDMA network does not allow you to do Data + Call; however AT&T's GSM network will.
