NeonCommander-Thumb

HeroCraft has released another game into the Play Store, and while you've never heard its name before, you already know how to play. Neon Commander is what you get when you install Space Invaders, but instead of firing back with a space ship of your own, you bounce enemy projectiles back towards them a la Breakout. With my skills, that means the world is doomed, but at least the game concept isn't.

Runtastic-Thumb

Back in the day, people used to go on runs with nothing but a loose pair of shorts and whichever shoes were comfy. Now such an idea feels downright preposterous without earbuds, music, podcasts, a fitness band, or an activity tracking app. Runtastic's offering is one of the first that comes to mind, and today it's getting bumped up to version 5.0. Runners, here's the promotional video.

Yeah, that video showed the iOS interface.

XperiaZ2-Thumb

Sony may not have the best track record when it comes to making its phones available across a wide number of carriers in the US, but it has no problem sharing its open source kernel files on a timely basis. The company officially announced the Xperia Z2 a month ago at Mobile World Congress, and now much of the handset's internal code is available for download on the web.

These files also apply for the Xperia Z2 Tablet, which Sony also unveiled at Mobile World Congress.

LittleBigAdventure-Thumb

DotEmu's latest Android port comes to us fresh from the 1990s and goes by the name of Little Big Adventure. It's an action-adventure game set in a previously common isometric perspective, and while those faux-3D visuals have lost some of their luster over the years, the nostalgia hasn't. Whether you've played this game on a PC or PlayStation before, this Android port is ready to suck you in.

Little Big Adventure welcomes you to the world of Twinsen, where its engaging characters and memorable storyline hope to draw you in, while its challenging puzzles and numerous secrets prevent you from heading out.

PlayStore-Thumb

A few days ago we caught wind of the existence of Google Play gift cards in Austria. It was good news, though it came as a surprise as Austria's name was nowhere to be found on the list of countries Google sells gift cards in. Now it is, though oddly still listed as 'coming soon.' Nevertheless, Austria isn't the only country to make an appearance. Now we see that Italy, Mexico, and Switzerland have joined the list as well (with Spain also still listed as being on its way).

Cerberus-Thumb

Cerberus Anti-Theft is the type of app that users install for peace of mind. The service offers the ability to track a device's location, record audio through its microphone, lock it, or wipe it remotely in the chance that it falls into the wrong hands. Unfortunately, this line of defense could be a person's worse nightmare if their account were compromised. That's why it was no small deal when Cerberus recently sent out this email to some of its users, alerting them that a number of usernames and passwords were stolen in a recent data breach.

MarkAsGmail-Thumb

The Gmail app doesn't provide the option to mark notifications as read, and it drives many users up the wall. MarkAsRead entered the Play Store less than a week ago and, as the name suggests, tackled this issue head on. Now an update is available that adds the ability to mark a message as read and archive it at the same time, just as the developer promised.

GalaxyGear-Thumb

The original Galaxy Gear wasn't for everyone (particularly people who don't own a Samsung phone). It also suffered from limited app compatibility and a quirky interface. Its biggest drawback, though, was the price: $299. That's a lot to ask for a smartwatch that only does a handful of things. But what about $99? That's how much Best Buy is currently selling refurbished models of the device for as part of today's deal of the day.

Search-Thumb

Google will provide the definition for any word it knows, as long as you ask nicely (just typing "define" usually gets the job done). For anyone who doesn't get what I mean, here's an example.

As an English speaker, this functionality is just something I take for granted. But like everything else, it takes time to expand this out to other languages. Now Google's drawn attention to the feature's availability in Spanish.

Rufus-Thumb

The Rufus Cuff isn't some dinky little bracelet with a tiny processor and a fuzzy LCD watch face, claiming that it's somehow "smart." This Android-powered accessory has higher ambitions. The mere act of strapping it on will take wearers one step closer to becoming a Power Ranger or the pilot of their own Enterprise class starship. Owning one won't make you cool, it will make you powerful.

This cuff still pairs up with your Android device like those other smartwatches out there, but it comes with an LCD screen large enough to handle plenty of tasks on its own.
