Timed with the release of its newest blockbuster movie, Captain America: The First Avenger, Marvel Entertainment is also pushing on the mobile front with the introduction of a surprisingly well done action game and, separately, a live wallpaper.

The live wallpaper, which displays the infamous unbreakable shield which deflects bullets left and right, is free in the Market (see the widget towards the bottom).

The game, naturally, features Captain America on a mission to stop Red Skull and mow down all the HYDRA soldiers in his sight along the way.

When we found Medieval Software's new app called Dual File Manager XT yesterday, we jumped on it right away due to its 2-pane support. Ever since the '90s, 2-pane "orthodox" file managers like the Midnight, Norton, Volkov, and most recently Total Commander have been an absolute necessity on any computer I use.

In fact, once I install a Windows OS nowadays, Total Commander is the first program that follows. Those who try 2-pane file managers can't (or rather shouldn't want to) go back to the conventional Explorer-style layouts - the level of productivity they bring is unparalleled.

In the 6th weekly giveaway of Android books, Android Police has partnered with yet another great publishing company that I'm sure everyone has heard of before - For Dummies. Don't worry, O'Reilly and informIT fans, we'll continue giving out their books as well, switching between all 3 companies as we go along.

Android Application Development For Dummies

Today, we're giving away Android Application Development For Dummies, published in December 2010, and, as usual, we're asking for nothing but a minute of your time in return.

As announced back at Google I/O, Android developers now have the ability to upload multiple APKs (individual package files) under the same listing in the Android Market. When you download an application that has multiple APKs associated with it, the Market will intelligently pick the APK that is most compatible with your device.

This gives developers an alternate method of supporting a wide variety of devices (say, phones and tablets) without stuffing complicated logic and graphical assets into a single APK.

Netflix this evening appears to have quietly unleashed the Android app on 16 more previously unsupported devices, all without updating the application at all.

The whole situation threw us off quite a bit, as the Netflix app description now lists both the new devices and a reference to a new version 1.3, while the app itself is still stuck at 1.2.2.

Nevertheless, after trying to find it in the Market using devices that were previously unsupported (HTC EVO 3D and Thunderbolt), to our pleasant surprise, we succeeded.

In the past few months, we have been giving away various devices in what I dubbed the "Giant Giveaway" series. Despite having given away 3 tablets (the XOOM, the G-Slate, and the Tab 10.1) already, we're not planning on slowing down; in fact, we're going to accelerate the giveaway process. Rather than keep the giveaways open for 2 weeks, we're going to run them for only about 5-7 days instead, as otherwise our shelves will collapse under the weight of all the goodies and ruin them, and we don't want that, do we?

The Prize

Motorola XOOM owners, listen up. Rather than keeping my XOOM protected with the very rugged Defender case from Otterbox that I reviewed last month, I'm going to give it away to one of you, as you probably need it more than me.

Otterbox is one of the top brands in the case business, and I'm sure this $90 shell that can withstand a nuclear attack will find a nice home.
