Madfinger's Dead Trigger was undoubtedly one of last year's premier mobile games. It brought forth elements that were previously only seen on consoles: quality graphics, a decent storyline, and gameplay that involved more than throwing birds at a some repurposed Jenga blocks. It was (and still is), a gamer's game.

Like with all popular games, we all expected a sequel. Something more immersive, with better gameplay, more features, a deeper storyline, and the like.

Earlier this month, Team Uncarrier dropped a fairly large bomb on the mobile industry by offering users access to international data roaming at no additional cost. Now, it's taken the wraps off of its newest offering, this time targeting tablet users: free data. The company is basically giving away monthly plans that offer 200MB of LTE bandwidth to anyone with a compatible T-Mobile LTE device. That's huge.

Judging by the wording in the PR, this plan will be available to everyone, not just those who already use T-Mobile as their primary cellular carrier:

T-Mobile is the only national wireless provider to offer tablet owners up to 200 MB of free 4G LTE data every month for as long as they own their tablet, even if they're not yet a T-Mobile customer.

Yesterday, Andrew Bell unveiled his latest creation: the Trickertreat Android figurine for Halloween 2013. This whimsical little pumpkin-headed Android has a dual-nature personality, much like the fun-loving, but also high-strung mayor of Nightmare Town in Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas. Actually, Trickertreat is a lot like a mashup of the Mayor of Halloween Town and The Pumpkin King himself.

This contest is now over.

The final results are listed below.

The amount of Bluetooth speakers on the market is mind boggling. Not only has every brand that ever made a speaker in the past throwing its offering into the arena, but the category has brought forth many new contenders as well, each of which claiming theirs is the "best." That's actually a silly assertion, as best is completely subjective. But I'm getting off topic. 

The way I see it, finding the right Bluetooth speaker for you isn't all that daunting of a task.

Back in July of this year, we gave four sets of amazing Android Progress Administration Propaganda Prints from Andrew Bell. These throwback-style posters are stylistically designed to replicate those from the 30s and 40s, and they look fantastic.

Fast-forward to now and Bell has teamed up with Cruzerlite to bring some of this killer artwork to cases designed for the Nexus 7. I was able to get my hands on a couple back at the Big Android BBQ and, to put it simply, these are some of the best-looking cases I've ever seen.

As long as bicycles have existed, those who wish to steal said bicycles have found new and inventive ways to get around whatever locking mechanisms are put in place to keep them safe. As a result, lock manufacturers have to come up with new ways to ensure their products do what they're supposed to: keep the locked bike from being stolen. Among all the different designs, the U-style lock has widely been adopted as the best and overall strongest.

Back in early September, Google pushed out a version of Play Music that brought genre-based radio to mobile. Today, Music 5.3.1233L is making its way out via staged rollout, and it brings yet another radio feature: I'm Feeling Lucky radio.

Like its name suggests, this is an auto-generated radio station based on your past listening preferences. So, it's perfect when you can't figure out what to listen to.

The minds behind SwiftKey are machines. They're constantly striving to make an already-great keyboard even better, and adding new innovative features. Today, SwiftKey hits version 4.3 in the form of a public beta, and it's a zinger – it's packed full of new, useful stuff.

The most notable difference with this new build is the marriage of the phone and tablet versions of the app. Finally – one apk to rule them all.

patch

Roughly four years ago, AOL bought a little company called Patch that focuses on local community news. More specifically, "everything you need to know about your town, from local government to school news to what to do with your family this weekend" according to Patch's homepage. Unfortunately it's not available in all areas (or even all states) so there are probably many users who haven't heard of the service (myself included).

While there are no shortage of zombie shoot-em-ups on Android, none have quite reached the level of popularity that Madfinger's Dead Trigger has. While we're still more than a week away from the unveiling of Dead Trigger 2, those who love this type of game may be feeling sad and lonely, wishing for something else to play. Good news! We have just such a game for you: say hello to Dead Effect.
