Robot Unicorn Attack's original web iteration was a moderately funny joke that morphed into an amazingly addictive game, and then morphed into a similarly insanity-fueling mobile game.

Building on the success of the original, Adult Swim Games has made Robot Unicorn Attack 2, which just recently made its Android debut and, happily, seems much more stable and playable than the buggy original.

Rather than trying to explain the sheer madness of RUA 2, we'll defer to Adult Swim's promotional trailer.

Carbon, one of the most hotly anticipated Twitter clients to ever come to Android, got an update today to version 1.2, bringing with it a ton of useful enhancements.

First among these is the ability to browse from links or watch YouTube videos in the app, saving time that would otherwise be spent leaving the app to see content somewhere else.

The update also adds Vine preview/playback, people search, a new image viewer, the ability to save images, optional style tweaks (like changing tweet font size), and the ability to change notification frequency, among other things.

Good light meters are expensive. The other problem with light meters is that they're often clunky and outdated in appearance. Pricey and ugly as they may be, they're a hugely convenient tool for photographers looking to get their exposures right the first time.

Lumu is looking to address both of those problems with the similarly-named Lumu light meter for smartphones. The Lumu, to put it simply, is both beautiful and awesome.

Seeking to make presenting rich media on Android devices a little easier, Adobe has released Presenter Mobile. As the name implies, Presenter Mobile works with Adobe Presenter which, for those who don't know, is a tool that can take your media-packed Powerpoint deck and turn it into easy-to-manage, interactive eLearning or presentation material.
