    Wow, great writeup.
    What a busy week it's been! Looking forward to next week!

    • Kane

      Indeed, that's a crapton of stuff compared to the usual. I dig the screenshots too, it was kind of empty last week without them.

  • Aaron Gingrich

    And by "best new apps" you mean "every app released this week that wasn't porn." Seriously... it's like 25 apps long.

    • http://www.AndroidPolice.com Artem Russakovskii

      Yes, out of a couple of thousand apps released last week, picking 25 that are not crap qualifies as "best". What is the problem with that exactly?

  • Brett

    Lovin' the posts lately - and love these sort of writeups.

    Thanks Artem :D

  • Alex

    add youtube videos of these games in action and I think this will be my weekly go-to source

    (as if it isn't already, hehe)
