    Thanks.

    Would you please talk about 365scores app

    It is a major sports app, and it was updated to version 2.0 yesterday

  • Davide

    Touch control is a must have for nexus 4!

      What does this do exactly? I see the swipe to unlock but they don't really explain the app in the store very well.

      • Paul

        Its main feature is swipe to TURN ON SCREEN*. Wonderful for me on my wireless charger dock. No need to press on that power button.

      • Gabernasher

        Double tap to turn on screen, the thing LG keeps advertising as a new feature on the G2. Something I've been using on my N4 for almost a year now.

      • Davide

        You can swipe or double tap to unlock the device.
        You need a kernel compatible with the app ;)

    • cwagner

      It's pretty much for people who root but don't want a rom and only use stock, right? Because pretty much every rom I used so far had those features included.

      • Davide

        Can you tell me which roms? I'm interested ;)

  • Brandon Bradley

    Do not care for the controls on drift mania

  • PuzzledObserver

    Root Cleaner looks unfinished, user friendliness below average, requires user to do many experiments to have the app working (if not, some apps may loose state and become unsuable until you reboot). Also, the app provides no clear metrics to confirm that its cleanup was beneficial.

  • Brad

    I'm a little wary of root cleaner... is this something that'd be needed? The broken English description doesn't really steer me towards it. Is this like one of those task managers that aren't needed?

  • ih8legal

    In addition to the games above A Bard's Tale is 50% off ($2.99)https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.inxile.BardTale
    Highly recommended game. Also if you have a tablet like the new Nexus 7 make sure to download the HD content.
