Action Launcher doesn't just tweak the Android home screen paradigm like most other launchers do – it creates new features that change the experience. It was already one of the more interesting launchers in Google Play, but it was lacking some features. Each update fills in the gaps more, and this is a big one.

2013-06-07 14.39.02 2013-06-07 14.39.32

Among the most notable additions in v1.8 is the option to configure the home screen grid size.

A $16 Android launcher is a tough sell, but you can pick up a copy of Next Launcher 3D today for free.

A new piece of Android malware has been discovered by security researchers at Kaspersky Labs. That by itself wouldn't be big news, but this Trojan does things no other malicious app has done. It exploits multiple vulnerabilities, blocks uninstall attempts, attempts to gain root access, and can execute a host of remote commands. Backdoor.AndroidOS.Obad.a, as it has been dubbed, is the most sophisticated piece of Android malware ever seen.

There are two previously unknown Android vulnerabilities exploited by Obad.

Blowing stuff up is a classic gaming trope, but few series have done it as well, or as consistently as Serious Sam. What started as a mindless, frantic killing-spree has evolved into a more attractive, high-resolution killing-spree. There's no covers system and no regenerating shields – this is serious business. In the newest deal from Humble Bundle, you can get up to seven Serious Sam titles plus the original public test edition for one low price of your choosing.

BlackBerry announced last month that its beloved BlackBerry Messenger service would be coming to Android. Although, the company didn't offer a date when BBM would be available. Don't tell T-Mobile UK any of your secrets, because it just let it slip on Twitter that the big day is June 27th.
