Sonos released a beta app a few weeks back that is much less... unattractive. The company isn't stopping with the looks, though. Sonos is getting official support for Google Play Music today, allowing you to stream tunes directly to your Sonos speakers from Google's cloud.

Mailbox launched on iOS last year, and users were impressed with its ability to efficiently manage a flood of email. The response was so good, Dropbox bought the company. Now an updated version of Mailbox is on Android for you to try with your Gmail or iCloud account.

It's time to bust stuff up in a cross-platform manner. Aerena - Clash of Champions has arrived in the Play Store after debuting on Steam (coming to iOS later). This is a turn-based combat game that promises quick, high-energy matches with squads of cool heroes squaring off. It's free-to-play, but the model doesn't sound bad. Note: it's tablet-only.

I don't know about you, but I always carry hammers in my pockets. So, clearly it's important I know how a smartphone will stand up to a hammer. Enter TechRax, who took it upon himself to do a hammer test on the Galaxy S5. The lesson we can all learn from this: don't hit high-density lithium-ion batteries with hammers. Just watch the very end... trust me.

Flying is already unpleasant enough with all the TSA body scanners and unruly children kicking the back of your seat and screaming their heads off until you just have to scream back at them and the flight attendant has to ask you both to stop, but she also gives you some pretzels to make you feel better... adding a crappy mobile app in the mix is just too much. Luckily, the United Airlines app has just gotten a big 2.0 update.

No sooner did we figure out Google added support for private YouTube videos to the Chromecast, than live videos started working as well. We've been checking around and it looks like almost every live stream is working on the Chromecast, but only from a desktop web browser right now. The Android app still reports an incompatibility with live streams.
