Microsoft Releases Office Preview Apps For Tablets Running Lollipop And All Intel/x86 Systems

While Microsoft's wide release of Word, Excel, and Powerpoint for tablet users was more than welcome, there were more than a few strings attached. Most notably, it was incompatible with Android 5.0+, making the newest devices unable to use them. The other major hangup was the lack of support for x86 processors, which basically means all Intel SoCs, a popular choice in the midrange tablet market. Microsoft is now working on a semi-private beta that adds support for both of those groups.

[Deal Alert] The Very Best Of Toto And Meat Loaf Albums Free On Google Play Music

Two great creators of music from that haira... I mean era, were Meat Loaf and Toto.  Today, the very best of albums from both artists are available free on Google Play with each featuring more than a dozen songs. The albums normally would ring up to about twelve bucks apiece, so it's a pretty nice gift from Google.

Reddit Has A New Beta Mobile Site, And It Doesn't Suck

There are dozens of Reddit clients in the Play Store, which is important seeing as the Reddit website sucks so hard on mobile devices. It doesn't really have a mobile UI at the main URL, it just scales things (awkwardly) to fit the screen width. There's also a little used "compact" site that's terrible in every way. Thankfully, Reddit is testing a beta mobile version of the site, and you can check it out now.

EA Sports Releases Graphically Impressive UFC Game For Android, Sucker Punches You With Pricey IAPs

I've seen many Android games that offer gorgeous screenshots in the Play Store that hardly reflect the visuals I encounter after downloading the title to my Nexus 7.
