Born and raised in the rural South, Bertel knows what it's like to live without 4G LTE - or 3G, for that matter. The only things he likes sweeter than his tea are his gadgets, and while few objects burn more than a metal phone on a summer day, he prefers them that way anyway.

Word-Thumb

We all remember Tiny Thief, but let's set those memories aside for a moment. Rovio Stars is back with another Android title. Word Monsters is a puzzle game that's so social, it requires players to sign in using Google or Facebook immediately after completing the initial tutorial. The game itself is an adorable take on word search. Look for words on-screen and swipe them to get points. Doing so will cause them to disappear, sometimes removing letters needed for future words and adding some degree of strategy to the experience.

Pebble-Thumb

Yesterday Pebble-wearing Android users gained the ability to control Pandora from their wrists. This was cool stuff for Pandora listeners, but now the brainy watch is getting an update that will affect all owners, regardless of their listening preferences. A 2.1 firmware upgrade is rolling out to devices via the Android companion app.

On the user-facing side, there's one standout new feature - the watch now has a menu entry for clearing your notification history.

TuneIn-Thumb

Listening to the radio has been a social experience since families first gathered around them in their living rooms, and now TuneIn Radio is ready to fully embrace this aspect. The Android app has received an update that injects a fresh dose of social features. Some of these build upon the way the software previously functioned, while other aspects are entirely new.

MLB-Thumb

The last time an RBI Baseball game hit store shelves, it was for the Sega 32x. Even in its heyday, few people knew what that Genesis-era console add-on was, and even fewer owned one. Now, two decades later, the game has returned for Xbox and PlayStation consoles, along with mobile devices.

The original entry in the series was the first video game licensed by the MLB and the first use the names of real players.

SW2-Thumb

The Sony Smartwatch 2 companion app received an update last month that introduced a new watch face editor and some other enhancements. Now Sony is updating its SDK for developers to take advantage of these goodies. With the Sony Add-on SDK 3.0, developers can enable their apps to run in low-power mode, extending how long a user can go before having to plug in their watch. The change lets the app run in the foreground while the backlight is off.

Todoist-Thumb

Today Todoist has rolled out an update for its Android app that introduces the ability to attach files to notes natively. This includes data stored locally, along with audio recordings created on the fly. More appropriately for a cloud-based to-do list service, the app can also pull files directly from Dropbox or Google Drive. To give it a go, just hit the paper clip icon when creating a new note.

BoltBus-Thumb

Greyhound's BoltBus service lets boarders ride without first purchasing tickets from some strange guy at a station. Instead, the company offers its services through this new invention known as the Internet. For a while now, passengers have been able to purchase tickets online for prices starting at a dollar (but realistically hovering around $20 - $40). Now they can do so using a bright new Android app.

Customers can now get their confirmation number and board a bus without having to get their hands on a computer beforehand.

BuildNumber-Thumb

Each version of Android is assigned a tasty treat to identify it by: Donut, Eclair, Gingerbread, Honeycomb, Ice Cream Sandwich, Jelly Bean, Jelly Bean, Jelly Bean, KitKat, so on and so forth. This is great for casual reference, but short build codes are provided to refer to more specific versions. This has been the case since before the DRC83 build of Android. Don't know which one that is? Check out our new Android Build Number Date Calculator to find out!

BoostMobile-Thumb

As one of Sprint's prepaid mobile offerings, Boost Mobile's big draw is that it's affordable. But competition has ramped up as of late, and now the carrier has rolled out three new "Monthly Unlimited Select" service plans to shake things up. The offerings range from $40 to $60, and all are technically unlimited, only not really.

Taking a closer look, the lowest plan offers 500MB of data. Users who exceed that amount then find themselves throttled down to 2G speeds for the remainder of the month.
