Back at the end of June, Amazon officially announced that its Appstore would move past the U.S. borders and make its way into various parts of Europe sometime "this summer." Just in the nick of time, the company has announced that the Appstore is now available in the UK, Germany, France, Italy, and Spain.

Not only does this offer European residents Amazon's [often crappy] free app of the day, but it greatly increases Amazon's presence outside of the US.

PayPal's official Android app received a big update recently, bringing it up to version 4.0.0.1. The update carries a much-needed interface redesign, bringing the web payment solution's mobile client more into line with Android's design language. Using a warm, espresso-and-orange color scheme with a few well-placed textures and conservative gradients, the app's new interface looks infinitely better than its previous iteration.

The update isn't just about looks though – it also carries some functional improvements.

Mystery. Magic. Oversized phones and cameras running Android. If these are things that make you happy, then Samsung's Mobile Unpacked event from today will be the best hour and half you can spend staring at your computer's screen (short of reading AP, of course). And just in case you weren't able to catch the live stream during the event today, Sammy has now made the entire thing available online.

Now you can see first hand what happens when Samsung, a couple of magicians, and and MC who talks louder than everyone else get together.

It's not often that I hear of a startup and think "I would love to have that in my town!," yet that's exactly  what I thought when I heard about Lyft. For the unaware, Lyft is a new service in San Francisco that helps people find a ride at around 20% the cost of a taxi. In fact, payment is actually optional (though not paying at all isn't recommended - more on that in a few).

A few of your friendly neighborhood Android Police writers collect the official Android vinyl figurines, but it's got to be said that they leave something to be desired in the interactive department. (By the way, if anyone has the Star Trek Android from Comic-Con 2012, I may actually trade you an arm and/or leg for it.) One Kickstarter project aims to change that, by making a 4-inch, animated, Bluetooth-controlled toy robot modeled after everyone's favorite green mascot.

One of the coolest features in Jelly Bean, Google Now, just got its first major update since Android 4.1 was released. The update brings some oft-requested features:

  • Movies - see movie showtimes and more
  • Public alerts - receive emergency messages such as storm warnings and earthquake alerts
  • Add favorite sports teams to follow in real time (from Settings)
  • Support for Korea

Most of these features are the perfect use-case for Google Now, so it's great to see El Goog already bringing new and intuitive features to the table.

The OG Galaxy Tab may be dead to Samsung, but, as always, you can count on the community to keep older devices alive. Official CM 10 nightlies for the original Galaxy Tab (p1000, p1000l, and p1000n) just hit the CyanogenMod download site, so owners of those devices can finally get a taste of Jelly Bean in its purest form.

Definition: A "nightly" is a bleeding edge release that is built on a daily basis, usually at night after a full day's worth of new code has been committed.

Sometimes, a game comes along that is so bizarre, so weird, so completely out there that it's difficult to describe just how strange it is. This isn't one of them. In this game, a unicorn teaches you how to use farts to kill zombies. Duh. Of course some walkers only react to certain types of flatulence. Everyone knows this. That's why we have unicorn trainers.

The gameplay is very similar to the Plants Vs.

I'm not sure why in God's name a thief would want to steal apples from a helpless old lady, but that's exactly what's going on in Mediocre's new game Granny Smith. Not one to let the bad guy win, though, the old bat throws on her skates and goes after the madman. Those are some pretty important apples.

As made clear from the gameplay trailer, this is a physics based racer and appears to use a similar control method to Mediocre's other game, Puddle.
