ZOMG! Volantis? Is it time for Volantis? You know you were thinking that, but we just don't know what's going on. All we can say for certain is that Google's Play Store in the US has no stock of the WiFi N7 or the LTE versions with AT&T or T-Mobile SIMs. The only version you can get is the "GSM Networks" LTE tablet.

Samsung pitched Milk Music this spring as a totally free music service exclusive to its devices, but slipped in at the end that it might not be free forever. You can still stream tunes for free without ads (or so the description says), but the new update to Milk adds the expected $3.99 monthly subscription for additional features.

The summer sales keep pouring in, but there's a fun little twist today—some of the sales have gone way below the $0.99 cutoff. Developers can't go any lower without Google stepping in, so this is a rare event indeed (those sales will be bolded below). There's even a $0.10 deal today. Remind you of the good old days?

Enough of these watch faces that are all about delivering important information and attractive "design." How about some animated GIFs? This app downloads trending animations from Giphy and syncs them to the watch to be displayed each time you wake it up. Want to see it in action? We've got a video.

There are approximately one zillion apps that want to back up your pictures to the cloud, but Amazon's solution was just updated with a new timeline view mode, which is actually kind of cool. So what's it do? The timeline makes it easier to jump to photos from months, or even years ago.

With the release of Android L just a few months away, proactive developers are already churning out Material Design versions of their apps. With over 10 million downloads, Equalizer is a popular Android EQ, but it was in serious need of a visual overhaul. What better way to do it than to go Material? Version 4.0 of Equalizer is out now with a new L-themed UI.

We suspect Motorola is cooking up a few devices to be revealed in the next few months, but the company's newest trademark is a bit of a head-scratcher. Motorola filed for a trademark on the name "Moto Maxx" just a few days ago, but that could mean several things.

Yahoo has really been upping its Android game with the acquisition of Aviate and the launch of apps like Yahoo Weather. Now the company has finally shown its finance app some love. Yahoo Finance has been completely rebuilt from the ground up with new features and a more modern UI. Frankly, I don't see as developers had any choice other than to start over—the previous app was incredibly outdated.

Sprint's Virgin Mobile pre-paid brand is announcing a new plan option today called Virgin Mobile Custom. Can you guess what the hook is from the name? Yes, it's a cell phone plan that you can customize. The plans come with a basic level of service, then you choose what extras to add. The catch is that you'll only be able to get these plans at Walmart stores.
