First the Android 4.2 Jelly Bean keyboard was extracted and made available for other phones and then it was Photo Sphere’s turn, and we even got to take a close look at how it works.

Those familiar with the term will know what ‘gapps’ stands for. You can grab the package here which contains Google’s own applications from Android 4.2, including Gmail, Calendar, Maps, Talk, and the rest. As a bonus, you can also download Google Wallet from here if you want to install that one as well.
